can you please help? I trying to trace a blockage fault in my dishwasher. I have followed all the filter and drain pipe inspections where I've not found any blockage material. I want to remove the side panel of the machine so I can inspect further where the drain pipe connects to the pump. However I'm not able to determine how the side panel is removed. Can you please advise? I'm suspecting that the top needs to be removed to get access to retaining screws under there, but Im unable to get the top off.
Re: Siemens Avantgarde - Water remains at the bottom.
I have now managed to remove the side panel. The removal of the top was needed before the side could be dealt with. The top remaval is shown in the instructions for the unit. Two ligs at the rear need to be pressed in using a screw driver. The top then will slide to the rear and lifts off. This procedure is for the Siemens model SE25T850GB08 however I suspect that the model this case is attached to would be the same. I've now resolved my issue in this case. I still however have not been able to resolve the water draining problem.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Does the washer pump out the water after the wash cycle? If not then check the drain lines coming from the pump to make sure that they are clear. Your pump not pumping will cause the machine to stop working as well
There is possibly a partial blockage in the outlet, preventing the water from draining out in the preset time. Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.
I won't be available for the rest of the evening, ( it's getting late here and I'm crabbing a snack and calling it quits until morning, but this should get you started. Based on your description...and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1.an Asko D1796 ( the FI just means it's "fully integrated" ) and 2. is filling with some water ( just not enough ), washing, heating and draining without any error codes...It sounds like a faulty fill valve/water valve unfortunately.
First though, you can perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below. You should hear the valve starting once the unit has started filling with water. You'll need to be familiar with the control layout for the test to begin. This is how the buttons/display is identified in the diagnostic... Now you can enter the fault trace by way of the following sequence.... Obviously based on the instructions if you push S3 the valve should open and allow water into the tub, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for when filling in the normal cycle NOT FAULT TRACING...Fault trace will fill until you stop it. This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s, but it can be fairly easily repaired with a little direction/know-how.
**First turn off the water and the power to the dishwasher...safety first** You should only need to remove the toe panel/kick plate at the bottom and of course turn your water and power off, undo the water line at the valve, i.e. ...remove the two torx screws ( large arrow ) and then the delivery hose at the back of the valve ( small arrow ) and install the new one. The new valve is part # 8801351 and available at on-line parts depot "repairclinic.com" for about $170USD last time I looked.
Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there...you may opt to call in a pro but that's up to you.
along side of the dishwasher itself there is a loop of drain hose to create a trap - inspect. also inspect where it is hooked up & follow where the drain hose goes to it's final connection to be sure there are no up hill runs or other blockages.
Speaking of blockages,. did you inspect the dishwasher drain very well to be sure it is fully clear and somethign is not stuck in under the water?
If need be pull the machine out from under the counter and check the side hose and unhook the drain where it goes into your house plumbing...
Dishwashers can be cluegy when it comes to draining...
some dishwashers have water left after the final rinse. it is important to keep the motor seals wet between loads. My filter is always immersed. If we go away for two weeks, I put 2 litres of water into the tub and let it soak 24 hr so that I never start it with dry seals.
i have a similar problem. water is not reaching the bottom spray arm. there. i have an underwater case for my digital camera, so i'm going to put a torch or 2 in some waterproof bags and remove the bottom spray arm and run the dishwasher to see if there's water coming out of the bottom pipe, if not, i need to try and see if there's a blockage in the system, or a dodgy valve, could be that the soldering's or the control panel's buggered.
