Check the valve. maybe its a faulty valve.check the pump motor as well, this gives rise to the water. just wish that its not the circuit board because the circuit board costs a fortune.!

if you say that its been used 3 to 4 years, your in luck because the manufacturer have this 5 year warranty period right?

if you plan to have that replaced by warranty, just be sure that you still have the date of installation because this is what the guys ask for.

again, you said that the water is on, water valve is ok, then it all comes down to the pump motor.

Here could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken. [edit] Steps

  1. Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.
  2. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  3. Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  4. If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  5. Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  6. Reassemble hose from step 3.
  7. Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  8. Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...

    • Unplug the washing machine while you are working on it to
      prevent injury from electrocution

    • Be prepared for water spilling on the floor.

I have a adg7560/1. the cycle starts but ends after a few minutes. the light flashes four times


Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled
Error codes


F1. Single flash. NTC Break. NTC open circuit/short circuit or ambient temperature less than 3 Celcius

F2. 2 Flashes. Water leakage. Floater switch LS6 in drip tray has switched.

My dishwasher ( 66517269400) won't turn on. Circuit is fine. It is getting power. I replaced the fuse. Clean light is flashing 7 times. Manual says "dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call for...


The F7 error code(light flashes 7 times) is a one of these, Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked.
So what you need to check is if the correct water level is in the tub,to check that start d/w let it fill and once you longer hear water entering,open door and the water should be level or just above the heat element, if not enough water first check water pressure to inlet valve,if pressure is good replace the water inlet valve part # 8531671 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

Year old Bosch SHU33A0UC won't start. Lights on


Light's on mean you have power.

Initiate the self test program by doing the following -

To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on
by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press
ON/OFF button.
To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each
program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended
and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault – note circulation motor stops shortly after it started
during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil,
measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays
at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain
where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150ºF) and water won’t stop
circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end
shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Let me know what you figure out. I can repair these boards most of the time.

Has made a growling noise (water) since it has been installed. has to do with water pressure? I installed it, old one made no noise


While filling? If while running, make sure there is nothing in water return area that might be touching the pump blades. Didn't misplace a screw while installing it did you? I have......

If while filling, you can slow the water down by closing the valve to the supply line, only turn it a little at a time so you keep flow as high as possible but below noise causing flow.

Dishwasher not starting when door closes


What your saying is suggesting a water supply issue. The Model number you've given can not be found on the Neff website.

You will need to disconnect power, turn the water supply off (under sink or behind dishwasher), disconnect the water line, put the end of the hose in a bucket or cup, turn water back on slowly and make sure water flows. Turn back off. If water flows -

Then check that there is not a restriction in the water solenoid valve. If you know how to use a multimeter, check the water valve solenoid for continuity.

Plug the unit back in, and initiate a wash cycle, and watch for voltage applied to the water solenoid valve. If you get voltage, you should hear the valve open.
Power the unit off, connect the water line, and repower the unit. Check again if water does or doesnt flow.

Let me know what you find.

Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050REC1 - Washing Indicator Light Blinking


Here is what happened, you pulled the door open without pressing cancel and allowing it to pump the water out, hence the "flooding in the bottom". This is just one reason why it maybe blinking, there is a water sensor in the bottom. If your dishwasher is hooked up properly to any decent garbage disposal, run the disposal for about 30 seconds to a minute. This should pump the water out, more like activate a light siphoning affect. It should work as normal. If you are not having luck with that, detach the DW drain get it low and let it siphon.
