20 Most Recent Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD040 Stainless Steel (Premium) Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers


You either have a faulty drain pump motor..Or there is some blockage at the pump to drain hose area....Remove the front bottom kick plate....Set the washer to drain...See if you can hear the pump humming ..If so you will need to remove the hose from the drain pump...Be careful o the amount of water that will come out...Best thing to do is use a shop vac to empty the inside drum...Then use again underneath once you carefully remove the hose. Pump is easily accessed once you take off the bottom panels, so do that and investigate as needed to see what is really wrong. There is no secret to taking off the bottom panels-all screws are clearly visible.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

That model was producedby asko. Which is now owned by sub zero - wolf. Suggest to get parts direct from mfr as it is more cost effective. Hope this further helps

You will have to check if the dishwasher is stuck in the drain cycle or wash cycle.

The normal and economy lights flashing means there is flooding in the unit.

Reset the unit by pressing START button for 4 secs. If the flashing does not stop then you have to call the technician. There may be a leakage which is causing the flood switch to activate.

Suggest that you pour a cup of CLR in dishwasher and let stand over night. SHOULD desolve the build up.

Try running it through with just water and no dishes. It should drain then. and if that doesnt work, power it down and restart the dishwasher.

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

You made have a leak causing the drain pump to keep running, if you never worked on this unit before I would suggest you call a professional. If you have worked on this before then look for water in drain pan to unit, the reason is water has entered drain pan and caused the float to turn on pump, could be from the drain hose, leak in a hose, or the diverter. all this part are located unit unit in access area (small panel under large door).
Good Luck, I hope this helps...
