Hi Tony,

I'm going to need some more information from you, so please post back with the following details:

1. Brand/Model of washer
2. You said it "flooded" - was water escaping from the machine? Where? From underneath or from the door area?
3. Is there still water in the bottom of the wash compartment now?
4. You said you cleaned the filters - were they blocked up?

Hope to hear back from you asap. Keep the water supply turned off for the moment.

Regards,
BElectric

    Also, is your machine fully integrated or freestanding? Can you pull it out from under the counter?

I Have gsd422ox6BB Dish washer that all it does is flash the reset light.


Flashing reset light could mean the flood switch is turned on. There could be water in the motor compartment of the dishwasher. To get this water out, you will need to take the dishwasher out from the kitchen bench and turn it side to side a few times so that water comes out on the floor. Make sure the power mains connection is taken out.
If this does not help then the flood switch itself might be faulty.
Check parts on this site.

Fisher Pakel dish drawer sends F1 alarm flashing. It usually happens when there is a drop or change in water pressure. Have had 3 repairs on this disappointing product. Only repair person for Fisher...


F1 is a flood fault ir happens when the machine detects water on the base of the unit, to clear this fault you can remove the bottom draw and use a towel to clean up the water this should clear the fault, But usually there is only water on the base if the lid is not closing properly, this can happen due to you putting long utensils in and the lid cannot pull down or you have faulty lid actuators witch is probably the case and they wont pull the lid down correctly, So if the lid wont come down properly water splashes over the top and floods the base. :)

Dish washer will not start all i get is a red light saying check water


Are you sure the red light 'means' water? If so, check the small tap near the machine where the flexible hose is attached to the mains water supply. It may have been turned off or there may be a kink in the flexible hose.

Good luck.

Water fill problem on Hotpoint Dish Washer Deluxe Model DF 31


Pl check the small filter fitted near the water inlet hose. Probably you may have to pull this filter as this is housed in the threaded pipe attached to the body.

Remove the hose from the machine and try flushing. see whether you get sufficinet pressure from over-head tank!

Clean the filter with tooth brush or reverse clean. Do no for get to fit rubber washer.

My dishwasher AEG FAVORIT keeps beebing and not working it flashes with a arrow and stright line? it stoppted half way through


The arrow straight line meens end of program. However the flashing lights do indicate an error codeas per the handbook. This could be the ati flood device (polystireen float / micro switch) at the bottom of the machiene indicating a water leak. This device puts the washer in pump out mode and nothing els works until the error has been rectified.

Hotpoint dishwasher bci450


Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.

I have an f1 fault on the display of the dish drawer dd-603ss which i believe is the flood switch activation would you be able to help me reset it


Have you checked that there is no water remaining in the base of the dishwasher? There is probably a float attached to a microswitch in the base of the machine. A cup of water left in the base of the washer could be enough to trip the flood activation switch.

You could try tilting the dishwasher through 45 degrees to see if there is any water left inside the base.

Have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.


I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.
