Question about Siemens 24 in. SL84A305UC Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Siemens dishwasher serie IQ which has had water damage. There has been water pressure on the drain tube. Probably the mashine has been partly filled with drain water. Now it can start and pump out the water, but it never starts any washing program. Well it starts and the time left (e.g. 15 min on the shortest program) is displayed. But then it does not start to wash or count down. Any idea what is wrong or broken? Anyway I can repair or reset the dishwasher?

How much water are we talking about? If its say less than 2-3 cups, It may be the way it is plumbed to drain. The drain line is back washing a little after everything is finished.

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

SOURCE: Siemens dishwasher pump runs while door open wont turn on!

There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 263834 and 361113. You can also remove 165263 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removeds) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction. There may be water in the base of the d/w (base as below the tank, not under the filter) this will activate the flood safety and give the scenario you have described, so check valve, hoses etc for leaks. You will have to manual clear the water from the base pan to deactivate the safety device. Sit the front of the d/w on a large tower and tip the whole unit forward, the base water will then come out. Whilst you have the side panel off, check that the red rod connected to the pressure chamber is not activating the microswitch. https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=SHU6802UC%2f12&ESHOPTYPE=S ps I appreciate the link is not for your model but the part placing should be the same.
I hope this helps, Good Luck.

SOURCE: Hello, i have a Siemens

It's possible that the Aqua-Stop flood protection system has been activated. I can probably help you, but I really need more information.

1. When you start a wash program, can you hear the pump running? - This will be a low pitch humming sound.
2. There is a dome/mushroom shaped plastic protrusion in the bottom of the washing compartment, located behind and between the salt compartment cap and the drain. Can you lift this up (be gentle) or is it already up and can only be pushed down?

Please post this information and I will try to assist you further.

If you've checked everything, you will need to replace the impeller possibly.

The motor water seal leakage of sump assembly. The height of drain hose connection ( sink drain hose ) is not over 20". Impeller of the washing pump is worn away.

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.

Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the drain pump needs to be replaced.

Per your notes, looks like you are a handy main, so you may want to remove the pump to determine if it is clogged. (Quite dirty job). The drain pump is easy to locate, just follow the drain hose.

Also, check the connection with the food disposer under the sink.

Our Siemens dishwasher retains water and smells


I would check the bottom of the dishwasher to see if there are any bones, old food built up as some of these collection systems have a small disposer built into them.
If you find any food, it's probably that.
Also, you can make sure that the drain line is the proper length and high enough as this is a common problem. Do a good search on proper drain height for dishwasher.
You may run an empty load of dishes with a cup of bleach added to eliminate the odor as well. Bleach will kill any bacteria causing the smell. More than likely the drain hose wasn't installed correctly.

Check this link. Multiple causes are possible yet most is how drain is hooked up to disposal and back pressure built up. Hose must be installed correctly.

Siemens Dishwasher - no water coming in


It could be 1 of 2 things, first (most likely) is that by turning it upside down some dirt has gotten into the pressure switch, that's a disc shaped device with 1 or 2 small tubes and some wires attached. in this case you have to find the switch (usually high up on the front or back) remove the longer tube and blow down it to clear the blockage.
Or it could be your inlet valve is not working, this needs ac mains on it, for a solenoid that opens the valve, again you may need to remove it & see if the coil isn't burned out, either a multimeter or just put mains on the 2 wires & hear if it clcks open. Inlet valves can sometimes get blocked, so they don't get the pressure needed to open, i also had this problem in a high-rise flat where the water pressure was too low!...hope this helps...

Water not draining out of dishwasher, goes into spin, but water stays


Low water pressure can be an issues. Also incorrect drain tube install.

For most dishwashers if the water level is below the heating element its actually normal. Sometimes like i said due to hose length or water pressure the water will not always drain but if its below that level its ok.

Last if you have a garbage disposal run it to clear lines.
