Re: doesn't shut off
I think you are hearing the drain pump going. take the bottom front panel off so as to expose the bottom tray. yoy willprobably find this full of water. mop water out and it should work. if fault reoccurs then you have a leak.
turn power off first

Hi Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn’t allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip, also inspect the connections to these. Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance. Daniel
I will ask and answer some clarification questions rather than send messages back and forth. Lets see if we can get you going in the right direction.
The machine fills constantly with water. It will run even with the dial turned off.
Running and filling are two different operations so I'll make some assumptions.
There is a door interlock switch that tells the unit the door is closed and it is OK to run. That must be working or you would be dead. As is the float valve or it would turn the unit off all together.
I am going to assume from what you say it is the constant filling that is the problem. If that is so then it is the intake solenoid that is jammed in the open position or the timer is stuck in the fill position.
If it is filling with the power on or off then the solenoid is jammed. Test this by shutting off the breaker and turn on the water supply. You can also try leaving the door open. If water enters the unit for sure the solenoid is stuck open. An easy fix, remove the unit, the solenoid is located where the water supply line connects. Turn off the breaker, simply disconnect the water, power, and unscrew the part.
Depending on the unit it is possible although unlikely the the intake water supply and drain lines are reversed.
If with the power off and the water on there is not water flow then the timer is at fault.
Either way if it is a new machine then warranty should cover it.
If not a new machine you can replace these parts easily.
Check my profile and look at Dishwasher 101 tips and tricks. It explains more on how to solve and replace.
Hope this give you some direction. Please rate if so.
Howdy. Flashing light on the switch, shows a glass? At any rate your overflow protection switch is activated. Probable cause; plugged or defective exhaust hose that does not allow pumping to go faster than water coming in, too high a water level. Clean the entire system first!
Is your exhaust hose going up to about threequarters as high as the machine? You must have this uphill twist and turn in the drain system.
A little water remains in the sensor and it thinks you are flooded. Force air through the pump in the floor until all is clear, a clean plumber's helper is ideal. Keep doing this until you get the last bit of water out of the sensor. When you get it running watch the machine (First time) carefully. You do not want a flood, that's why Asko put this safety device in place.
I am at the end of my tether. I have bought a new door latch for my Bosch SGS 43E02 GB45, so door now closes properly and have managed to stop the leak under the front left hand side of the machine. Howver it sounds as if it is constantly emptying. It does not go onto the new wash cycle just keeps pumping out the water. It did run a quick rinse yestreday but now is back to the constant emptying problem. Even when I open the door it still keeps running and staying on a emptying cycle despite there being no visible water left inside the machine. Please help!!
sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.
Hi there ....this condition is ususally caused by a water leak into the sump of the dishwasher which activates a safety switch to run the drain pump..preventing the appliance from being used....Remedy...tip the dishwasher back in the head allowing excess water to exit from the sump...then with the door open check that the air vent lock ring is secure, thet the salt unit retaining ring is secure..and finally that the filter unit to base screws are secure...this done re-start and you should b fine
