Check that the filter is clean -- (more likely) is your drain hose clear? -- you may have to trace it all the way back to the main drain or garbage disposal to be sure. My Bosch 5316 would not drain well, and I found it was clogged at the join up at the top of the sink.

The lights of my Viking dishwasher VDB200SS are flashing and do not stop even if I reset the unit by pressing start for more than 4 sec. The pump is running when I connect the unit to electric power for a...


Hello Jo, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, I suspect you mean the drain pump is running as is common for Asko built machines such as your Viking with this scenario/error. I have good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What this usually means is the control has indicated a overfill. All the indicators flashing is the error code for overfill/drain error.


**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump or a inlet water valve, so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit activates the pump-out non-stop
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The machine is just flashing E24 on the front. What does this mean?


E24 = draining failure

If the appliance has stopped full of water then you have to check the drain hose for blockages, especially where it connects to the drain. Check the pump for a blockage, bail out the water manually and remove the filters. You should find a cover held by a screw covering the pump impeller. Take out the screw, take off the cover and remove anything jamming the pump. Refit the cover and try the appliance again.

Flashes F1 and a wrench symbol... water doesn't drain


Assuming you are getting the F1 error in both drawers.

This means there is water at the base of the housing under the bottom drawer.

Turn power off and take the drawer out. You will have to pull out the plastic pins on either side and get the front cover off. This will enable you to pull the drawer out from the slide bar for better access. Use towels and hair dryer to get rid of all the water. The flood switch is mounted on the power board. Use hair dryer to dry this out.

Put everthing back and turn power on.

Post a comment if this is not fixed or the F1 is only coming in one of the drawers.
Please rate this solution.

Trying to start the unit but the washing light indicator only flashes.


this means the machine has started the cycle...that is the washing light is flashing. However if nothing happens then the drain pump is not working firstly. Machines usually drain first any bit of left over water then go yo fill up. As you havent ststed the make and model i assume the drain pump is faulty. or the water inlet is not working. More precise info is needed to advise you further

Intake/drain light is flashing


When this happens with my dishwasher it usually means that the drain is clogged with food/debris.  To fix 1) remove bottom dish rack from machine 2) using a small cup, scoop out as much water as possible 3) remove inlet drain cover and unsnap the plastic insert and remove 4) rinse the plastic part and reinstall 5) start machine 6) if light still flashes, repeat steps 3 4 and 5 and restart

We have a dishwasher that flashes clean light on front panel and will not allow a new cleaning cycle. Mod GU3200XTPS3 TYPE 577-0


Make sure the control panel is not locked. If you press any pad while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and the selection is ignored. If the lock symbol is lit, press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. The light turns off.

If the control panel is not locked and the problem still occurs press the Cancel/Drain button to drain all water and clear all indicators. (It might take 2 minutes to complete this action.)

You have a internal leak in the dishwasher...there is a safety float system in the base (below where you put the dishes in!) of the unit, which in the event of water in the base will stop the cycle and activate the drain pump continiously.... You will have to open the unit and find the leak. Don't know these models, but usually you have to remove side panels and front panel, drain water from the base and re-start....then check with flashlight where the leak is. Oshie
