The anti-flood system has been triggered means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage.
If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

SOURCE: Anti flood system triggered Favorit 40660 dishwasher

The problem was solved by opening the machine and finding that the bottom "Y" pipe that has 3 inputs is of extremely poor quality and perforates with pin holes allowing a small amount of water to squirt out. This triggers the anti flood and error status lights flash. The outlet pump is activated and machine does not do anything. You need to replace this hose or like I modified it to work from a 32mm Y plastic junction available from most hardware shops. The wire clamps for this was replaced by "jubilee" screw tight clamps.
I worked on a table and also removed the "Brick" placed at the bottom for balance purposes by cutting the back plastic down with a saw. This made the job very easy...

Easy fix, had same problem on our. behind the red lights there is the electrc stuff, when you open/close the machine the solderings crack. remove screws until you can get off the panel, then there is some small hooks that hold the board, loosen all contacts and take out the board, check the solderings around the relais and re-solder them, i resoldered all spots on our board.

Water wants to drain and keeps trying


Sounds like anti flood system has triggered (polystireen float and micro switch) that puts the washer in pump out mode only and shuts the inlet water off. You need to look at the bottom of the washer and check that water leak / spill is not causing the float to activate. Clear the water and fix leak (pipe or pipe clamp) and this should fix the problem.

The dishwasher fills up it starts to spray the water but after 5 seconds it emptys. It then does the other the rest of the wash normally. This happens in all modes.


Check to see if water at the base of the washer has caused the "anti flood system" to trigger. The anti flood device is a polystireene float and micro switch that does trigger (and puts the washer in pump out mode) once water via leak or spill is detected. You can tilt the washer to 45 degrees and check if a small amount of water comes out of the bottom. As you indicate that the washer emptys after 5 sec I do think that the anti flood system is causing this.

Water won't come into the dishwasher


The anti flood system could have been triggered due to a water leak or spill at the bottom of the washer, This device (polysireene float and micro switch) when triggered shuts off the inlet water and puts the washer in pump out mode only. Use a torch and check if a small amout of water is causing the float to trigger the microswitch attached to the float. If a small amount of water leak / spill is causing this you need to first fix the spill / leak. before you try again.

Aeg favorit 64070vi, i 30 fault, think that the anti flood switch is triggered


Thanks to all.
What we couldn't work out is what is actual mechanism of anti-flood triggering, and how therefore to reset it - and why all these other fixes work - but then it occurred to us, that problem is when water gets into the base and can't get out.
Our problem was that water inlet at top of washer came loose so water ran down outside the drum but inside the dishwasher, into the base. We tried the tipping method but this just moved water around and I think there must be sensor there which, if it stays wet, leaves anti-flood triggered.
This makes sense because other high level overflows from drum discharge into base - so if it was to overflow, it goes into sealed base only, wets the sensor and triggers anti-flood.
Our solution was patience - tipped it fully on its side, pointed a hot air blower into it for hour or so, then left it overnight. Tipped it back next morning, water which had run into side panel ran out, so it was upright with its base dry - and (touch wood) it worked like a charm.

Water wont come through the dishwasher.i checked the water supply switch it is still in the on position what should i check next.


The anti flood system could have triggered (due to water on the base of the washer via leaky pipe) This device shuts off the water supply and puts the pump out motor on and nothing els happens until you clear the water on the washer floor and rectify the leak.
The anti flood device is a polystireene small plate with a micro switch on the bottom floor of the washer.
