SOURCE: Need to know how to re-set the anti-flood device

I managed to clean the filter inside the dishwasher and drain a little residual water. I then re-plugged in the appliance and the anti-flood device seemed to reset and I have n't had any problems since.

If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days.)

If there is water in the dishwasher -i.e. it was part way through the cycle and stopped, it maybe that the outlet hose/pipe has got blocked - possibly by your plumber's efforts. Generally speaking, the fats are rinsed off by the hot water, but go solid further along the pipes, as it cools. It could be he has unblocked the sink drain side of things, but not the dishwasher drain pipe. Risking more water on the floor, if your flexible waste hose can be removed, pour some water down the waste pipe, see if it goes away fast enough.

One thing worth trying, if not done so, is to unplug it from the supply, and leave unplugged for 20 minutes or so. Then plug it in and see if it operates OK then. Maybe try that first.

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash III Dishwasher will not drain properly

From the sound of things, your dishwasher drains faster than your sink drain ( via the garbage disposal) can drain it off.. You may have a problem with the way your sink drain/trap is vented and there is too much back pressure to drain down quickly.. When you run water from your sink, does it take a long time to drain down or if you fill your sink up and drain it, does it drain slowly ? That may be your problem.. Hope that helps.

Fixerfailure, is the knock-out plug still inside if the garbage disposal inlet?

Stick a screwdriver in there to make sure.

spazmo1969, could be the rubber flapper is broken off in the pump discharge outlet.

SOURCE: main hose blocked so flooded dishwasher blockage

When this happens sometime the "Back Pressure" mucks up the sensor. It may have to be replaced?

How do I fix my dishwasher it is Glem and is showing E4


I found this. All the errors are generic to all models

Hi I'm a kenwood engineer
E4 means that the flood sensor located in the sump of the machine has got wet!
It only should get wet if the machine is leaking somewhere.
The sensor is designed to switch off the machine if triggered... To save flooding your kitchen!
Very good idea really - as most machines don't have this feature and flood the floor until the cycle is finished.
Yes you need to tilt the machine back to drain the water from the sump first.... Then look for your leak. The leak cud be on any hose or water pump... Or the seal under the filter chamber. Once leak fixed and water drained/dry
E4 should clear. Make sure machine is empty and unplugged before messing! :)

and can also be drain error

My dishwasher is not draining off the water properly. It has flooded the kitchen once already. I can here the pump running, but it is a bit noisy. The bottom of the dishwasher is still full of water after...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Flooding in both drawers of dishwasher


I suppose "flooding in both drawers of ..." implies water is not draining out. Is that right?

It is a very little information to give you any clear solutions.

Did the water get into the drawers without starting any wash program? Most likely it is the backflow from kitchen sink back through the dishwasher drain hose. Does your kitchen sink plumbing have an air gap sowehere. If so, is it clear?

If the water is the back flow then it is likely to be smelly and you do not want to run it through the dishwasher. I would suggest take the drain hose out from under the sink downpipe and drop into an empty bucket. Then take all the fixtures out from the drawers and empty out water using a small container.

Put the washer arms back and run each drawer on a short rinse cycle collecting the drain water in the bucket. If cycle runs clear, then get plumber to check the kitchen downpipe.

Reconnect drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher backing up


sound like you have a few things going on there.there is a float switch which is located at the front right side of dish washer, make sure this floats freely . also sounds as through your drain line may have become plugged. Ease to fix , remove the line and hard line from the pump with a set of plyers. and remove the debris from the diaphram within the hard line.. before starting this be sure to remove as much water from within the dishwash, easiest way is to use a shop vac.

Contunuous draining turned into a flood when unit powered off


The fill valve is governed by the float switch. I doubt that your fill valve (solenoid) has failed.

Focus on replacing the float switch and you should be all set.

Good Luck!

SA 660 SMEG dishwasher constantly filling....


this can be water draining from your sink into the dishwasher via the drain pipe, assuming the drain pipe goes to a spigot on the sink trap.
take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck to prevent this.

You have a restricted drain in your sink, not the dishwasher. Water is unable to go down drain fast enough and is backing up.
