I have had this dishwasher for about 4 months and it worked fine, untill I went on holiday for two weeks and found when i got back that the machine just kept filling and filling to overflow through the door and else were. I have checled all filters and other obvious bits. The program enages each time but just fills with no action from the rota arm or pump.

Re: baumatic mini4 dishwasher
My first question - If your dishwasher is still under warranty why you don't ask manufacturer service to take care for it !!
Water supply to the diswasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water freely into the tub. Check if water are coming into the tub when the diswasher is off. If this is the situation- Open the valve (very easy to do it)and clean it from scale or other dirt (take care not to lose any part). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!!
In most cases it should solve your problem, but if not - you should replace the valve with a new one.
Good luck !!

The dishwasher has too much water in it, this is a safety feature.
Underneath is a tray at the bottom, you need to empty this before it will start again. I've had this problem many times. My dishwasher had tiny holes in the bottom tray where the basket sits, went rusty due to not using it very often (holiday home). dried it out, applied silicon sealant to the edge where the metal sits, let it dry and the problem was solved.
I have used a sucking water vacuum to remove water, or tipped it forward. Hope this helps for maybe next time.
Sounds like a dicky or jammed water level sensor. Get a qualified and licensed technician to check it out. The sensor and labour to replace it should only be around AU$50 or AU$60 dollars (excluding callout or pickup / delivery fees).
I do not have the parts list for this unit. You wil have to contact Baumatic to order parts.
To correct the E6 code you will have to have the thermostat replaced or wiring to the thermostat repaired that is causing the open circuit.
It obviously has leaked water on the connections underneath, Lean the dishwasher back and see if any water comes out the bottom, then leave it standing for about a week to dry out and hopefully it should be ok.
It sound like a water switch level problem. I am not familiar with your specific dishwasher, but there are 2 types of level switches.
1)A diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. 2)Floating switch that located inside the dishwasher's bottom and operate a switch.
In case there is a floating switch in your dishwasher - check for its smooth movment and check as well the switch by a multi-meter (an on/off switch). Defective switch should be replaced.
If level switch in your dishwasher, is a diaphragm device - Open the rear panel, find the device and clear first any obstruction in the tube.In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube.
In case it will not react, you should replace it.
Good luck !!
