Question about AEG 24 in. Favorit 50730W Free-standing Dishwasher

2 Answers

Powder solenoid I hav e an AEG Favorit 50700 sensorlogic dishwasher. As soon as I switch on, before even selecting a programme, the solenoid to operate the powder dispenser door operates, then stays activated until I remove power. I've taken the door liner off and the PCB looks OK - but I guess whatever powers up this solenoid has gone short circuit. Any idea what it might be or might look like?

The no-brainer answer is to replace the controller board. But I just saw the price on line was 248GBP ($350) which is not going to be worthwhile. I just had the same problem with the same model dishwasher. When I checked my circuit board under a microscope, I saw cracking and discoloration on what appears to be a ceramic capacitor. It looks like this capacitor is for snubbing the transient across the triac used to control the soap dispenser solenoid. I do not know what value this capacitor has, but I am about to replace it with a 47nF, 630V ceramic capacitor in a 1206 package. That costs $0.59 from digi-key (part number 445-8794-1-ND) I am sure that Colin999 has trashed his dishwasher by now since he posted his question over 4 years ago. I will post an update with the results when I get the part installed.

    It seems that I guessed correctly. The dishwasher is now fully operational. What most people are forced to do in situations like mine and that of Colin99 is to buy a new controller which costs nearly as much as a new dishwasher. In fact all that was needed was a $0.59 capacitor. Well not quite. My 30 years of experience in electronics allowed me to find the fault and guess the capacitance of the failed part. Better would be if all manufacturers provided full schematic diagrams. Then anyone with some basic tools could replace the broken part

Aeg favorit 40010vi dishwasher won't fill with water


I have a similar issue on oko favorit 50700. I have checked the flow from the inlet hose into a bucket and it really seems ok, so I think maybe a problem at the inlet to the machine? Plea update if you get a fix!

Aeg sensorlogic 50700 first showed c2 message; we drained & cleaned filters 3 times; worked half cycle and now showing error message c3?


Error message C3 is most likely indicating the flood switch is triggered. This means water is leaking from under the sump. The C2 error is linked to drain problems which you cleared.

Our AEG Favorit Sensorlogic dishwasher has had no power to it


Open the lower front panel and locate where the water inlet hose is connected. Shut the water off under the sink, disconnect the hose at the water inlet solenoid, then put the loose end into a bowl or pan and turn the under-sink valve on slowly. Do you get water flowing from the hose? If so, then check the solenoid water inlet valve for damage. If the coil is ok, the valve part may be stuck closed. It should make a firm 'click' when the timer is set to start the machine (leave the hose loose). If it doesn't click, the coil may be bad, the valve may be stuck, or the timer is not sending 115 volts to the solenoid. Try a new valve first. If still no click, you may need the professional service. Good luck!

Open the left metal panel, if the white plastic tank is black at the bottom or is not clean: remove it, open it, clean it (make sure the water flows through properly) and put it back in.
