Ariston Dishwasher LSV 67 AIX wont fill with water pumps out only

Hi team the subject dishwasher has a two part filter assembly "A" coarse & "B" fine. The user manual states that the "A" is to be cleaned after each wash & "B" monthly. When the machine failed to fill I checked both filters, they were OK. I poured water into the machine in case it had a dry sump, it pumped out & still did not fill. I used the manual check list without any change. I then cut the power & water then contacted a repairman. A few days later he arived he went directly to the filters then scraped a filmy residue using his thumb from the "B" filter . He then turned on the power & water & the machine ran ok. He advised that the problem was a "messy/blocked" filter & that scraping it with his thumb had solved the problem. We were charged as a "blockage" is not covered under our extended warranty. Aprox four days later the machine again failed to fill with water. I tried the "thumb" treatment on the "B" filter even though I dont agree with the "blocked" filter contention. However I cant get the machine to fill. I have been told that if a service man attends again & he records the filter as "messy/blocked" I will need to pay again. I am confused as we have had this machine for 5 years & have always cleaned the both filters.
Help

    Thanks Tresilla

    We apreciate your prompt & informative response.

    However my extended warranty company have advice from the inhouse "assessment team" that a "blockage" is not covered by the warranty. Even though the same problem of "the machine not filling with water" happened again shortly after that servicemans visit . This time however a "faulty valve" has been found. Despite this I have been told that the original charge of $74.90 still stands due to a "blocked filter" preventing water from filling the machine at that time.

    Cheesed Off

    Regards

My ariston LSV 67 built in will not start. When i turn it on the red and yellow light turns on after i put it on a setting but when i close the door nothing happens. Everything seems to be fine other than...


This could be door switch or anti flood.

Both require someone electrical competence to check.
Go to the Ariston web site and look up the schematic or parts diagram for you machine so you can locate the door switch and anti flood switch if fitted.
Check door switch works i.e. when depressed circuit is made .
Check for water in in anti flood switch if present identify leak and fix before using again.
Other things to check are that the pump is moving freely.
With unit switched off and un plugged only if you feel competent remove the food filter at the bottom of the machine after the filter has been removed you should be able to access the pump underneath.
Check it can be moved freely. There may be some resistant but not much.
If it is not rotating this need to be investigated rubber bands from food can seize it up.

Did the machine stop mid cycle or just not start after last wash?
any other useful information may help others diagnose your problem
good luck hope that gets you started

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher


If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

Wont let water in and have checked all pipes and filters


Hi


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Filter needs cleaning. How do I get at the filter?


Dishwasher filters are important to catch food particles and other debris. The dishwasher cleans small portions of food from the dishes, cooking pans and silverware. These particles must go somewhere. The drainage system on the washer may clog if filters are not present. Most Maytag dishwasher models have two types of filters, "Coarse" and "Fine." You should clean the "Coarse" filter after two or three wash loads. The "Fine" filter can wait for a cleaning for about 300 loads or three months.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Sink sponge
  1. Empty the dishwasher. Remove all dishes including pots, pans and silverware.
  2. Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible. The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers. It may be convenient to lift the rack out. Typically, if you lift, the wheels leave the track.
  3. Remove the "Coarse" filter. This filter is a small, round knob in the middle of the "Fine" filter. A round knob is around the "Coarse" filter. Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.
  4. Knock the contents of the "Coarse" filter into the garbage can. Run the faucet to remove smaller particles. Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge if debris is stuck-on. Push back into the filter holder when complete.
  5. Take out the "Fine" filter. Turn the round knob that is around the "Coarse" filter counter-clockwise. Once the knob is loose, pull up. The "Fine" filter will come out of the dishwasher.
  6. Rinse the "Fine" filter with the hot water faucet. Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments. Replace the filter into the dishwasher. Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.
