SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump

We eventually, after several days of these problems, called a technician. It took him a couple of days to come round. Then when he did - he switched it on and absolutely no problem. His explanation was that if you interrupt the cycle whilst on a hot cycle, it sometimes thinks it's in flood mode. If you leave it off for a couple of days - it's OK.
Learning
1) Try not to interrupt hot cycle
2) If the pump continues to run - switch it off and wash dishes manually for 2 or 3 days.
Hope this helps others.

SOURCE: Dishwater won't stop trying to drain even when door is opened

The drain valve is stuck open. This is electrically operated, but may have some debris inhibiting movement. If you can physically move it (with the power off) this should repair the problem.

SOURCE: Dishwasher "F1 and a small wrench symbol" blinks continuously

The unit has a leak causing floor sensor activated.
1- Unplug power cord.
2- Pull oull half way the drawer so an access from the bottom left could be obtained.
3- Use Paper towel or small towel to dry out the water on the bottom housing.
4- Wait for 48 hour so the sensor can be dry out.
Plug in the power cord. The unit will act as normal.
Your problem is solved.

However you can't operate since you know you have a leak problem. Let me know how it in progress and you decide to call service to fix it or I can guide you to fix it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Dishwasher pump keeps running

This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

Neff dishwasher pump continues to run after cycle finished


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. Also after the program is completing to the final stage the drain vavle/pump must work and cut off If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve/drain pump must be checked or the fault relates to the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

Bosch SHU runs even when the door is open, what do i need?


Hi Jeffrey,

This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.

However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.

This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.

Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.

Regards, BElectric

We have a neff dishwasher and the pump is draining all the time (even when the door is open) but there is no water in the dishwasher. Is there a way to stop the pump and reset the setting for the flood...


Hello,
The water which has activated the antiflood device is actually underneath the appliance it is held in the sump tray and this has to be drained before the A.F.D.will cancel.You will have to remove the dishwasher to get at the underneath but when you have got rid of the water you will still have to trace what caused it.The seal on the circulation pump could be a suspect or a pin hole in the drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Neff dishwasher continually draining


Update to my problems. It is now working. I removed the T20 tork screw housing the pump cover which is situated underneath the filter. I used a sponge and siringe to remove all water. And started the dishwasher a few times to spin the pump and flickout any excess water. I noticed some small bits of food which were removed and I cleaned all filters and put it back together. It didnt work staright away but the pump was not comong on as soon as the door was shut anymore. I did a reset and then selected a rinse programme and voila it worked! Tried a full wash cycle last night and it all seemed to be working fine......

Adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher


I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.
