SOURCE: Dishwasher has an awful smell when finishing

Sounds like something is on the coil that is heating the air to do the drying.  The coil on most units is in the base of the wash chamber.  It is black and roundish, resembling the coils on many electric stoves but larger.  You might find some plastic on it.  Gently remove it.

SOURCE: Bosch dishwasher stinks/smells

I put an enzymatic drain cleaner in the drain at night, ran it for about 20 seconds (to move the drain water into the hose and then ran it on the shortest cycle in the morning. I repeated it the next day. Seems to make a big difference. ONLY USE ENZYMATIC OR BACTERIAL BASED DRAIN CLEANER.

SOURCE: the dishwasher is not cleaning properly

Check the main drain system connected to the dish washer hose pipe. Clean the junction if clogged. This smell might orginate from the pipe.

Check incoming water quality. If hard water is noticed, use softener attachments to the inlet.

Fill dish washer salt in the dispenser. Refer user guide. The salt will help softening the water to certain extent. Finally check whether rinse aid dispenser filled with the rinse aid liquid.

SOURCE: I have a neff dishwasher

The reason your pump is running continuously is that the "anti-flood" protection system has been activated. This is normally due to water having leaked into the bottom of the dishwasher under the washing compartment. It could also be due to a faulty anti-flood microswitch, but the first problem is more likely.

In the bottom of the washing compartment there is a "float". Look for a dome/cylindrical shaped protrusion rising from the floor of the washing compartment. With the dishwasher on and the pump running, push down on the float and the pump should stop. If it rises back up and the pump starts to run again, then you have a leak somewhere in the bottom of the washer. If it stays down or it already down as far as it will go, then it's more likely to be a faulty switch.

Either of these potential faults can only be fully confirmed by removal of the dishwasher from under the counter and removing some of the panels to get access to the components under the washing compartment.

After testing the float, if the pump continues to run, you should to turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher. The problem then needs to be investigated by someone who is competent to identify the cause of the leak or replace the float microswitch, depending on which is the problem.

If your unit has a round dial timer (like many washer machines) the timer may be sticking. If it has an electronic timer then the door switch may be faulty. Don't run this unit unless someone is nearby, if the door switch shorts out, you may have a fire.

Neff s5443x1GB/29 dishwasher starts and stops


The pressure chamber or hose (pressure chamber to sump) may be blocked and the microswitch is being activated because the water is not entering the tank quick enough. Isolate from electric, remove lid and left panel (looking from the front). There is a plastic chamber bottom right of left side with two microswitches, either this is blocked or the hose that runs from it to the right and along the back of the kick panel and into the sump. Clear either or both (make sure all hoses are pushed true when repositioning).

How do I find the product code for my Neff dishwasher - it's built into the kitchen snd I need to buy a new wheel


Hello,

You will find the Enr. and Fd. numbers on the top inside edge of the stainless in the centre near the door switch. It is etched into the stainless and it can be difficult to see in certain lights or the angle you look at it but it is there.

Hope this helps.

Modell S5443X1GB water not pumping out,no


First you need to ensure that the drain pump is working.
The drain pump is tested by the technician by energizing the pump directly, so to understand if the pump solenoid is working.
This is an unsafe job for the home user, as there is AC inside your appliance, all live power test should be done by techs.
Apart testing the pump, check also the wiring harness to the pump.
If the pump is fine, then replace the control panel.

Stale smell on crockery after wash


Most commonly, this relates to sulfides or other impurities in the water itself, but may also be caused by a buildup of food soil within the washer. Smell a clean glass of water. Does it smell stale also? If no, clean the screens and wash water sump/tank within the machine.
You can also clean the inside of the machine by using a commercial grade dish machine detergent and increasing water temp if possible.
If the water smells stale, consult a local water expert for guidance in resolving
