Allow oil to drain into an oil waste pan.
Change oil filter also ..located under skid plate..use filter wrench to remove filter. Be careful as filter is full of oil ..drain in waste pan
wipe filter mounting plate clean..put a thin coating of oil on new filter gasket before spinning it on to the mounting plate..hand tighten and then tighten about 3/4 more turn.. reinstall drain plug. do not over tighten or you can strip the threads. Install correct viscosity and amount of oil start engine. let run to get pressure up. shut off engine, check level with dipstick and close cap....you are done.

With the power off push a rag into the base plate to soak up the water.

Miele dishwasher Model G1023 drain light stays on and dishwsher will not work


Hello fellow DIY'ers,
Have just had the red light drain/inlet error terror!
Tried all the basics, including:
- check and clean inlet hose filter,
- check and clean drain hose,
- remove and clean all the filters in the bottom, and
-remove and clean the non-return valve.
Still was left with water in the bottom at the end of the wash and the red light drain/inlet error.
After researching further I found that this light also indicates a flooded unit. There in a shallow pan in the base plate and if water collects there it activates a float switch, stops the wash, and lights up the drain/inlet error.

To fix it:
- Disconnect power, water and drainage.
- Pull out your dishwasher, suction/remove all the water from the bottom. This includes the water in the salt reservoir, the drain pump and non-return valve.
- Tip the dishwasher onto its back.
- Remove the four star head screws (sometimes a small flat blade screwdriver will fit these) from the base plate.
- Remove and inspect the base plate. It won't have any water in it as you've just tipped it up. But you will see if it's wet and any staining where the water has sat. It only takes a small amount of water to activate the switch.
- Clean and dry the base plate.
- Have a good look around for leaks in the base of the unit. There was none in mine. Our dishwasher is a snug fit under the bench and we had been doing 2-3 washes per day for several humid weeks leading up to this problem. I believe the water builds up over time and doesn't get a chance to evaporate.
- Put it all back together again and test it.
- If it works, go buy yourself/your family dinner because you just saved yourself about $420!

Regards,

DIYTom

We have a bosch classixx free standing dishwasher and the base is filled with water, we ve removed the filter but there doesn t seem to be anything there causing the blockage.any ideas?


Hello Becky,

The most likely causes are a failed drain pump motor (or capacitor) or a jammed/broken pump impeller. There is a very simply simple test on classixx models which which help you to determine the cause, or where to look next.

1. Turn the wash cycle selector to any wash cycle so the "ON" light is illuminated, but do not press the START/STOP button.
2. Open the door and pull the lower basket out.
3. Locate the 'float', lift it up fully and keep it held up.

(The float is a dome/mushroom shaped protrusion in the base of the washer just to the left of the drain and partially hidden by the spray arm)

When you lift the float, the drain pump should run instantly and the water should drain from the washer. If you can hear a low hum from the pump motor in the base of the washer, but the water doesn't drain, then it's likely that the pump impeller is jammed or it may have broken away from the spindle. If this is the case, try repeatedly lifting and dropping the float fairly rapidly. Repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a stuck impeller.

If you cannot hear any noise from the base of the washer when you lift the float, then the drain pump motor or the motor capacitor may have failed. A failed capacitor is often accompanied by a buzzing noise. Further testing will be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.

Please try the simple test above and then post back with the results for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Mower does not start with filter on, why?


Your filter base sounds like its clogged. It may be the case of the dirt dauber building a home in your filter base plate port that pulls air from the outside. Remove base plate and inspect for this problem.

Bosch shu5313 pump won't shut off


danimaldds there are 2 pumps in this dw, a drain pump and a circulation pump. If it is the drain pump that is running, look in the base under the machine. Remove the kick plate and see if there is water in the base. If so remove the water and see if the pump shuts down. If not look to the left side under the machine there is a red plastic stick, lift up on it with a wooden or plastic spoon. Do this a couple of times. It is possible the overfil float is stuck. If the circulation pump keeps running, then the control unit is the cause. Hope this helps

Bosch SHU43C installed in 2003


My Bosch SHU43C had the same exact problem. I found the below solution on this site. Perhaps you already seen it.

My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I tried to run one of the cleaning cycles, no water entered the machine. Corrective: I removed the base plate, and saw that the red plastic floatation device was in the up position. Using a flashlight and a wooden spoon, I lightly toggled the red float stem down. I pushed regular clean cycle and kept toggling with the red float stem until the rinse water started to enter the machine (turning the red stem seems to also actuate a step in the program). Now the dishwasher runs normally. Voila!
