    thanks for the reply

    Regarding the steps you list:
    water feels like it is traveling through the water inlet
    The following happens:

    1.Drain pump runs. YES

    2. Drain pump stops.YES

    3. Water is heard entering the appliance. NO
    BUT: the drain pump runs intermittently (not continuously) draining water

    water is not entering the appliance- that is it water is not wetting the dishes.

Hi,

Tap symbol indicates a water problem.

Check that the water supply to the dishwasher has been turned on.

Check that the water supply hose hasn't bent or kinked.

Check the water supply first, see what you find.

If you can feel water travelling through the water inlet pipe that means the machine, when first switched on must be doing the following.



Drain pump runs.

Drain pump stops.

Water is heard entering the appliance.


Is this correct?


If not, is the drain pump running continuously while it is taking in water?

Let me know,so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    Based on the response you gave, it seems to be a problem with water valve.Kindly check the water valve.Make sure there is no hose / drain pipe blockage and the filter is clean.Read the below guide how you need to test the same. Make sure to take all precautions.There are few more components we need to check, however check valve to rule out this cause.

Why is my Miele dishwasher displaying "Open stopcock", even though water is flowing and I've cleaned the inlet filter?


There are 2 possible main causes for lack of water, given that you have checked water availability at the dishwasher.
1. The water solenoid valve in the machine is faulty or failed.
2. The motherboard in the control panel has a fault and needs replacing.
Unless you are a DIY'er I suggest you call a serviceman

We have a Siemens dishwasherSN66T091GB. The unit is not showing a fault code but the 'tap' light and 'rinse aid' lights are flashing continuously.


Tap symbol indicates a water problem.

Check that the water supply to the dishwasher has been turned on.

Check that the water supply hose hasn't bent or kinked.

Check the water supply first, see what you find.

Rinse Aid symbol light indicates low on rinse additive.    

Hope this helps?

Error code E:14 Siemens Dishwasher - stops after 1 min of cycle


It might be helpful if you provide the full model number of the Siemens dishwasher. Most likely E14 error has something to do with water flow sensing. Check if your mains water pressure is ok (tap under sink is fully open). But can provide more details only if you can tell me the model number.

Dishwasher Siemens /se64m359gb tap light comes on in red on main display,what does this mean?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

Bosch dishwasher wont drain


You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.
