Question about Neff 24 in. S5543X2 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 10yr old Neff s5543 built-in dishwasher, it is has been working fine but recently has stopped fully draining. I have removed it from the housing and checked all pipe work is unblocked and not kinked, have also blown back down drain tube to free any blockages from drain pipe, have also removed pump cover and checked around impellor for any foreign bodies etc. Everything seems clean and free. I ran a complete heavy cycle (empty dishwasher) and allowed drain pipe to drain into a bucket, filled about half a bucket after washer cycle and another half after rinse cycle, again everything seems fine, but still not fully draining. Is there anything else I should check please? Peter

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Ok there are acouple of things that can be checked on this along with what you have already checked
Drain solenoid Beneath some dishwashers, there's a timer-activated drain solenoid (an electro-magnetic coil) that opens a drain valve, to drain the wash water through a hose and out to the house's plumbing waste system. If this is failing it will not allow the water to drain from the machine fully
Timer Dishwashers have a timer behind the main control panel at the front top of the dishwasher, or behind the lower access panel. It is either a mechanical device like a simple clock, or it's completely electronic with just a digital readout. The timer runs the dishwasher in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the dishwasher components at the correct time, for the correct length of time.

We have a neff dishwasher and the pump is draining all the time (even when the door is open) but there is no water in the dishwasher. Is there a way to stop the pump and reset the setting for the flood...


Hello,
The water which has activated the antiflood device is actually underneath the appliance it is held in the sump tray and this has to be drained before the A.F.D.will cancel.You will have to remove the dishwasher to get at the underneath but when you have got rid of the water you will still have to trace what caused it.The seal on the circulation pump could be a suspect or a pin hole in the drain hose.

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher pump keeps running


This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

My dishwasher is not filling w water


check filter or drain hose it probably have a dirt,try to fill with water manually and turn on pump to dispossess water,if water not go out and pump work then you have dirt in hose or filter,if pump not work then pump is broken.

Neff dishwasher continually draining


Update to my problems. It is now working. I removed the T20 tork screw housing the pump cover which is situated underneath the filter. I used a sponge and siringe to remove all water. And started the dishwasher a few times to spin the pump and flickout any excess water. I noticed some small bits of food which were removed and I cleaned all filters and put it back together. It didnt work staright away but the pump was not comong on as soon as the door was shut anymore. I did a reset and then selected a rinse programme and voila it worked! Tried a full wash cycle last night and it all seemed to be working fine......

How do I reset my dishwasher


Sounds to me like you have put the dishwasher into flood mode, this happens when there is water in the base panel, try leaning the dishwasher back and see if any water comes out. :)

Neff S5555 - empties water but stuck in draining mode.


if this machine uses an electrical-mechanical timer with cam switches, the try oiling the shaft bushings both for the timer motor and cams-the timer may be getting stuck because of dry or corroded bushings

Dishwasher stuck on "drain"


not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump
