AEG Favorit 44090i Dishwasher will not fill with water

There may be a filter after the aquastop pipe which is blocked. This is usually at the back of the inlet valve. Also, the inlet valve may no longer work.

Aqua stop hose allows water through when disconnected from Whirlpool dishwasher but stops water when dishwasher demands water

looks to me like as if the direction of the hose is incorrect. Check to see if there is a direction of flow arrow on the hose and point that arrow away from the tap towards the machine.

I want to disconnect the water supply. I am replacing this 12 year old slimline smeg dishwasher and they are coming to take it away to morrow. The connection to the water supply is via a grey plastic box...

Hello Henry,

It's the aqua-stop safety valve and yes, you can just unplug it. Make sure you close the valve on the water-supply first or it's going to get rather messy!

FYI, the aqua-stop is a second-level safety device which shuts off the water supply to the dishwasher to prevent flooding if a leak is detected, when there is no power to the washer and in certain other error conditions.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Keeps showing check water

As you know E9 is linked to the water inlet problem.

There are two scenarios here - 1) Are you using the Aqua-Stop safety system? If this is trigerring then it can shut the inlet water. The reason it can trigger is if the flood device located at the base of the dishwasher under the tub is seeing water. Now it is possible the 2 weeks wait for the technician caused the water to dry out and the dishwasher worked on his arrival. But the leak could have started again when it worked once again. So you could have a leaky hose or the door gasket.

2) going by the description of the error codes in this smeg document, I can foresee the error E9 is linked to the water level system which is not able to detect the level required for the dishwasher to start wash cycle. Possible cause is gunk around the sensor that detects the water level in the tub.
Refer a possible solution reported at this forum site.

What I am not clear is why is the dishwasher not doing anything now when you press the start button. Maybe try one thing at a time.

Please post a comment to confirm which way it progressed.

We have just taken delivery of a Siemens SN26M230 dishwasher and have connected it to the water supply. However, no water seems to be flowing into the machine, which has an 'Aqua stop'. There is no...

Make sure water is turned on. Make sure you have electrical power. You can try pouring a quart of water in it to help prime the pump. The water supply line to the dishwasher could have been bent and cut off water while installing the dishwasher.
Your question got my interest I have no dishwasher. My wife wants a dishwasher I told her I have had one for 33 years. She did not take it that well.

Where is an Aqua-stop fitted in a dishwasher?

In the water inlet hose close to the valve on your supply end,its encased in a big ( 2") plastic housing with a brass fitting.

Hope this helps.
