Question about Viking DFUD04 Built-in Dishwasher

Viking Dishwasher Leaks Into Base

What do you think is the most likely cause of this leak? I have a Viking DFUD042 (aka ASKO) dishwasher. Water leaks into the base. I've removed front plate, and removed water from base. This temporarily solved the problem and I was able to restart the dishwasher cycle. After a very short period, however (about 1 minute or so) the pump was the only thing working again, and it will not stop as long as its plugged in. (I'm assuming the base flooded again but did not pull the plate yet). The dishwasher does not appear (to me) to have a float valve. Am I right? If not, where is it, and how can I test/fix it? Also, I tried to take the back plate off by removing 4 screws. It would not come off. If I need to remove it, are there any tricks to removing it?

Since this was posted in May I guess it's been fixed but for those of you seeing this problem for the first time, here's one reply:

This sounds exactly like the problem I just found with my DFUD042. There is a small black hose between the base of the tub and a pump motor - part number on the hose is 8072888. The hose has a small **** or crack in it and water is leaking which is most likely the problem causing the symptoms. I had to throw the circuit breaker to get mine to shut off as well.

When I tried to remove the plate it was stuck under the black sound proofing so I had to work around it a bit until it finally came off. Now I just have to find the hose and some clamps.

My asko d1706 dishwasher doesnt let water in. As I


Base pan full of water means there is a water leak. So your machine has a flood detector (floater) and it prevents feeding further water into the machine to prevent the flooding. I think this is the reason. You have to fix the leak.

Just to make sure first clean the base pan water and try it. It will work until again water leaks and activate the floater (flood switch)

Hi - my Viking dishwasher has developed a problem where the pump runs continuously, whether the power switch is ON or OFF. After the power is turned ON, the troubleshooting guide indicates that there is...


if you open the kick plate, you'll see the pan below the motor and check for leaks. The leaks will trigger the sensor to pump water out. Once you dry out the pan, the pump motor will stop and you should be able to reset the program.

Drain pump keeps running and F2 error


This is caused by the "anti flood" system being activated. Consists of a polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer. Once water leaks / spills are detected it activates and puts the washer in pump out mode only. You need to dry the base / check for leaks / rectify leaks (normaly a small hole in pipe or pipe clamp).

MODEL#DFUD042PSS STAYING ON DRAINING CYCLE


The draining cycle remaining on is an indication that the anti flood sysyem (polystireen float / micro switch) at the bottom has been activated via a water leak. This anti flood system puts the pump motor on and shuts the inlet water. Dry the water at the base / find the leak or blocked pipe causing the water and this should rectify your problem.

Leaking dishwasher


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you have nuisance water leaks around the base of your dishwasher, you may be using a detergent that is causing too much suds. Cut back on the amount of detergent you use, and see if that makes a difference.

Water that spills through the door vent is usually caused by improperly loading dishes. Leaks from the door itself may be caused by a faulty door gasket or door tightness adjustment. you should check the main tub seal, the door latch, the door gasket, the water-inlet valve, and the fill and drain hoses.

Also make sure the dishwasher is sitting level (you can adjust the front feet up or down, and many units have some type of levelers at the rear).

Water under the dishwasher may be originating from a leaky hose or loose hose connection. Remove the lower front panel, and check the hoses.

An older dishwasher may corrode at the bottom, but this is fairly uncommon. If this is the case with your dishwasher, it's time for a new one.



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
