Siemens hydrosensor dishwasher SE25A091GB/22

Hi there,

hope u can help. i have a 2003 siemens hydrosensor dishwasher.

problem:

1. when turning power on and setting wash cycle, gurgling noises come from the bottom of the dishwasher drain/pump system and no water flows into the dishwasher.

2. however, when i manually fill the dishwasher with water, the drain/pump system pumps out the water and the wash cycle starts in the usual manner.

3. But, when the water has been pumped out, the wash cycle stops and gurgling noises start again.

what could be the problem?

I have cleaned all filters including inlet as described in the user manual.

hope u can help,

cheers Paul.

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

Dishwasher has no lights even after checking the outlet for power, the unit does not light up. is there an internal fuse?


Probably not. Most likely the plug, or cord is bad. Have you had a power surge? If so, no telling what happened.

Dishwashers tend to get stuck on wash cycle if the water temperature is not reaching the level the wash program expects it to reach. This could be due to faulty heater or thermostat or both.

One test is to run the dishwasher on a rinse cycle (normal water temperature) and see if it completes it.
Refer this site for location and cost of heater and thermostat

It is obvious the drain or pump out is not working. There is a blockage in the outlet. Check the drain under the sink nby removing the hose and making sure the hole is not blocked. The pump in the dishwasher may be blocked. fixing this may not be within your field of expertise and a technician may be needed. Good luck

After the wash cycle dishwasher beeps


Hello, welcome to FixYa. While I don't have access to my PC files at the moment as I am on my iphone, I believe this is the procedure for most B/S/H/ built dishwashers ( that means Bosch, Thermador, Siemens and Gaggenau ). To Enable or Disable the Cycle Completion Signal... 1. Open the door, hold down the ?Quick Wash? button and simultaneously turn the Dishwasher on. The ?Quick Wash? light will blink (program mode). 2. While the light is still blinking, push the ?Quick Wash? button. ? If the machine beeps, then the Cycle Completion Signal has been enabled. ? When you push the button again and it doesn?t beep, it means that the Cycle Completion Signal has been disabled. 3. Turn the Dishwasher off to take it out of program mode. I hope this answer's your question. Thank you for choosing "fixya". Please rate the solution favorably if indeed it was helpful, if not please let me know. Good luck. macmarkus :)
