Question about Bauknecht 24 in. GSF8971 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bauknecht GSF 4761


It's a somewhat older model, but perhaps you can help anyway.

After moving to a new apartment, the dishwasher won't work.

The START button is blinking and one of the program buttons is on (the last we used = the rinse button on the left). i couldn't get rid of the blinking.

I suspected it has to do with the water pump and I added some water at the bottom, which didn't help. Disconnecting and reconnecting the power won't help either.

The water pressure in the apartment is lower than the pressure in the previous apartment, but it still seems reasonable.

Please help.

    Same problem !

    Fixed once by my wife who administered some direct 'first aid' (Bashed it with a rolling-pin !!!) but the probklem has come back again after a few months.

    Electrical or mechanical?? I can't figure it out !

The timer is not advancing to the next cycle. Replace the timer.

My Bauknecht GSF 6550 dishwasher is stuck with error F4. Whar does it mean ? What can I do?

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect. The error indication can be a short in the circuit, check the heater circuit and the pump motor.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Bauknecht GF7199 F7 light has come on

F7 error indicates a fault with the water flow meter .

Check the sump filter at the bottom of the dishwasher, then close the door and turn on the power. then hold the start button with the + and - buttons under the LCD display, until the drain pump starts. This should then reset the dishwasher.

Hope this helps .


have only worked on them a few times but no problem to use. literally select program, close door and start. you won't break anything by trying it out.
put detergent in the dispensor and rinse aid in the rinseaidv despensor. if in a harrd water area, add dishwasher salt to the softener

Bauchnecht GSF 5343 dishwasher

I used to work for Bauknecht years ago.
I dont remember that machine, but it could be an indication that your salt dispencer needs refilling.

What does F7 Means?

The F7 means that the drain filter is blocked or your water pressure is low. Check and clean filters. Good luck !
