Hi.

Re:" programming controller stops turning at certain points in the revolution and has to be manually assisted to continue."

That means that the machine does not detect that one condition to continue the cycle is met.
Sometimes when this happen unesperience repairers replace the timer board , an expensive part that rarely fails. The timer board must be replaced only after everything else is tested, the problem is usually a sensor, or a faulty part that causes the condition to advance not being reached.

If problem is on filling, check inlet valve and water level switch. Check both pressure switch located under panel at the base of the tub (this is not present on all models), and check the float switch. This devices sense water level and can cause filling part of the cycle not completing.
Inlet valve can be tested reading Ohms at solenoid contacts, it must be 3.9 Ohms.

A more common reason for cycle hanging on is temperature not reached. If machine is dual inlet, and gets hot water from lines, check the dual inlet valve.
A simple test can be done swapping dual valve contacts.
If the hot valve does not open, the machine won't even start filling with contacts swapped.
If machine is self heating, test thermostat and element. Element is tested reading Ohms same about thermostat. Thermostat must read zero at room, and element must have continuity.
I think this machine has dual inlet, in that case there is no element.

Some Baumatic may also have a half-load valve that must be tested reading Ohms at terminal.

If machine is hanging on drying (some model only), the dryness sensor must also be tested.

The door switch must be tested just in case the problem is caused by a defective door switch cutting off randomly with vibrations. This is tested jumping its contacts and running a controlled cycle.

Here a table to test Baumatic.

Hi, I have error message 20 on BDW14 Baumatic. Dishwasher won't start. What does it mean? Thank you..


Error 20 is not a listed error in Baumatic dishwasher. They only mention E1 to E7.

There is a reset procedure for random errors which can be viewed at this page.

Right hand side nylon spring cord guide broken when cord snapped and now door return has no tension.


Searched for a nylon rope guide for a Baumatic BDW 9 but was unable to locate one. I found that many of the components for the BDW 9 also fitted the BDW 10. So I searched for the rope guide for a BDW 10 and found the correct product. Problem solved!

Our BDW 13 keeps tripping our fuse board


your cicuit is overloaded. hook the DW up to its own cicuit, or at least one that will not overload it. Circuits should not be loaded to more than 80% of their capacity. 15 Amp load no more than 12 amp.
when motors/pumps start they use the most load or power, or when your DW turns on the heat.

Looking for reset switch


If your getting `E3` then it cannot be reset, one of the two thermostats on the heater element cannot be reset and has to be replaced, around £18, you can test which one of the thermostats is faulty by using an `ohms` tester, open circuit, faulty, this is a very common problem with these.

Error E1 comes up on dishwasher


E1 error comes up when faucet is not opened. this is shown up when it takes longer filling time.
The solution for this is to ensure that the inlet hose is not kinked or crushed.
