Water is not heating

The water is not heating, could this be due to an element failure, relay failure or something else? How would I go about checking?

thanks

You will have to ohm out the element if you have no continuityyou will have to replace it

My Candy DFI Plan shows E3 and stops washing after 10-15 minutes. The problems started because electronics( I swithed with new) than I change the water pump, the heater, the thermostats and when is on,...


E3 - Missing heating of the water.

Could be:
· Clogged filtering plate.
· Defective heating element.
· Defective wiring (open circuit, leads
off place or loose).
· Defective electronic control board.

You have already changed all major electrical components energized during the heating phase. But do not forget that failures sometimes could be mechanical. For example: failure could be in hydraulic circuit of pressure switch, sometimes hydraulic circuit can lost air pressure. Another note would be that your dishwasher have NTC thermistor which every second gives information about temperature to electronic than electronic controlled heating element by a relay.
In order to heating element come under the voltage is necessary to fulfill a couple of requirements. Microswitch on the door in the closed position, the pressure switch in position 11-13 (full position , level of water) and the main switch is turned on.

No hot water in my diswasher


Possible failure of the heater element which can be easily confirmed if the continuity test on the element is checked after disconnection of the mains line. If present the washer must be connected and the voltage checked on the heater when the heating cycle is ON. If absent the controller unit/relay is faulty check the wiring and the connections , but take precaution when the test are done with the circuit connected live.

Have changed heating element, stat, but water still cold


Check and see if the replaced heating element has the continuity to the coils. If so the fault can be failure of the switch or the contactor/relay for the heater. Also the program controller must activate the relay to supply voltage to the coils. so check this line of supply to confirm.

My Miele G646sc dishwasher is not heating the water and therefore there is deposit of water at the end of the cycle. Please help.


Both the issues seems to be apart. The loss of heating is due to failure of the heating coil, failure of the heating coil control relay , failure of the program controller unit.
All of this must be checked with a multimeter only if you are able to remove and check the control panel of the washer.
Secondly the drain pump/valve can be clogged and is not fully exiting the water after the program comes to an end as the time given to pump out is not sufficient due to low flow - clogging with dirt.
Remove the drain hose/ drain pump and clean the filters , reset the valve/pump to test.

The lights are blinking and I can not turn on the dishwasher.


Hi,

The clean light usually will blink due to a failure to heat the water properly. This dishwasher looks for a temperature rise of the water during a heating cycle if it fails to see this rise for multiple cycles it may shut down and blink the clean light.
There are a few things to check before resetting the control.

-The unit not being level so both door switches do not make contact
-
The sump plugged up so water is not pumping across the heater (see sump clean out below)


- Not enough water filling the dishwasher


- The heat element is not working


To reset the control use this key dance within 5 seconds press: HEATED DRY, NORMAL, HEATED DRY, NORMAL
This will cause you to enter the diagnosis cycle once this is finished or you hit cancel the control should be unlocked and ready to use.


Thank you !

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A -cycle runs too long (4 hours)- items still wet. The economy cycle also runs too long - should be about 80 minutes and it ran for 200 minutes.


It sounds like there's a problem with the dishwasher's heating element. The dishwasher uses the heating element to heat the water to certain temperatures, and it will wait (run for extra time) for the water to reach this temperature, and may eventually give up. When it's time to dry, the dishwasher uses the heating element to steam dry the dishes. If you're not technically savvy, you will probably need to have a pro work on the machine, but first check to make sure there's not hard water scale buildup on the heating element. If you're brave enough to work on the machine, you should check to see if the element's plugged in, check its resistance to make sure it conducts electricity, check the element's switching components, and finally the dw's computer board. There's a chance that the machine is just stuck in a loop or something. You should try turning off the circuit for a few minutes. There's a chance it may reset and start working.

Stuck on Glass cycle!


Hi melH Sounds like the water is not heating. Will be either an open circuit thermostat, heater element, or the switch / relay that controls the element. Using an ohm meter, test the element for resistance. Check thermostats for continuity. Regards
