Question about AEG 24 in. Favorit 80860iW Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have an AEG Electrolux 80860 (free standing). It is not cleaning properly and keeps saying 'spray arm blocked'. I'm not sure what to do. I have run it on empty, tried to unblock everything I can see (spray arms don't have much to clear - only tiny holes and they look ok). Do you have any suggestions? Many thanks!

My dishwasher isnt cleaning the top shelf properly. not sure what has happened. cant find any probs. was working a couple of weeks ago. ive lost my user manual.


Most likely a blockage in the spray arm / nozzles or the draw is not fully sealing the water inlet allowing the water to bypass the spray arm /nozzles and go directly into the machine.

Hi there, I have an ESL424 Electrolux dishwasher and I'm having some problems with it not washing dishes properly. Is there any common reason for this? The problem seems to be more apparent in the top...


first thing is to ensure the top spray arm is turning freely. make sure nothing is blocking it, for example one of them dishwasher fresheners.

also check the holes on both spray arms to ensure they not blocked up, also if you can remove the spray arms and clean them out, also clean out the filter.

i also always susjest putting the upper basket on the highest setting as high plates etc. in the bottom basket can stop spray arm turning

after checking all of the above, put the spray arms in the 12 o clock posistion and turn the dishwasher on, when it starts washing open the door to see if they have moved.

also always use a good quality diswasher tablet, cheaper ones dont always give good wash results.

The upper arm is free spinning by hand, but from all indications, it is not spinning. Water is flowing freely and drain is excellent. Is the upper arm problem a major repair.


Hi


Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are oopen. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure is not low.

under the screen and youl'll need a Torx driver to get to it after you remove the spray arm and screen. Check to see that the path it travels is clear. I have seen these get blocked up by stuff.

Now check if the top arm spins freely and check the bearings for the arm, if they are producing extra friction while the spray arm spins. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more assistance.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly and everything tastes like soap


Hi,

To start with reduce the amount of detergent you are using. 2 teaspoons of detergent is enough for any wash.

Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. The bottom spray arm is the easiest and just pulls out the other two in the middle and the top you have to unscrew like a childs lock on a tablet bottle. Push up from underneath and unscrew each arm.

Hope this helps.

DISHWASHER AEG 80860


Just fixed a similar problem on an AEG F3A by following other advice on this site. Simply tip the machine forwards on to its door (best empty it of crockery first!!!).and then put it upright again when water has stopped dripping out of it. You wil get quite a bit of water on your floor which I reduced by pumping the water out of the salt resevoir first - but if you don't have a pump just have several towels handy

Upper basket spray arm


Have you checked that the cover for the water inlet at the top where it connects to the spray arm is attached? It could have worked loose. Just re-attach and your spray arm should "miraculously" start rotating again!!
