Check the stand pipe for the drain hose it must be higher than the water in the machine or it will just run out should be 30 inches or higher. I just worked on one with this same problem the drain was about a foot high it would fill and run out almost as fast as it came in.The pump will pump it out when it drains.

The soap doesn't dissolve and sometimes the plates are still dirty.


Start dishwasher. Stop after a minute or so. Check the water level in the tub. On a older model I would expect about 2 inches of water in the tub. About 1/2 inch or so below heater.

If water OK than I assume you can hear the pump running.

If pump running and enough water than I would assume a blocked wash arm.
  • First rotate by hand and make sure that it doesn't bind or interfere with rack.
  • Check carefully the holes at the ends of the arm looking for debris that collects. Seeds and such love to collect at the tips preventing the jet of water that provides the rotation force from escaping. Use small tweezers to grab debris and pull through hole
  • Blocked water return screen. Look for clear plastic etc that covers the return of the water to the pump sump.
  • Place small cups right side up in upper and lower rack. Cycle machine for a minute or so. Confirm cups are filling with water!!
If all checks OK than try running water at sink for several minutes to confirm water is very hot. Start cycle knowing inlet water to dishwasher is hot. Evaluate results.

L have error code E3 on delonghi dishwasher


We have discoverd xactly why and sorted this on the bottom righthand wall there is a small circular sensor which measures the water temp during the washcycle. If you cover that with a plate pan or chopping board it cannot detect when temp reaches 47 degrees c so gets stuck on 1hr 32 min in the 2hr cycle. Keep that sensor clear and it will stop.

F8 flashing unit will not cycle gets water then starts beeping


F8 - this code is indicated that there is your dishwasher is having problems detecting the correct water level. Often this results from an insufficient amount of water entering the dishwasher during a cycle - so the water supply is probably ok but check it as F6 (F6 means that the dishwasher is unable to fill with water. Ensure that the dishwashers water supply is turned on (double check the tap valve to make sure its open). As above, also make sure that the inlet water hose is not obstructed, kinked or twisted), just in case.

Occasionally the water level sensor might misread if there a too many bubbles in the dishwasher (i.e. if you put washing-up liquid in the machine, etc).

Otherwise your machine may be having an issue with water pressure, possibly caused by a faulty water pump.

Hope this helps.

Bosch Running a LONG LONG Time and Watering Remaining


Hi,
You could try running the machine with the drain hose leading to a large bucket. If it works OK in this situation then the blockage will be most likely where the drain hose joins the house drainage system - often at a junction under the kitchen sink. With the drain hose disconnected you should be able to see the blockage and clear it with a suitable pointy tool.
Let me know if this sorts it. Thanks, D.
