Question about AEG 24 in. Favorit 40260i Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Drain pump The drain pump is running continuously. The instruction manual says the anti-flood system has been triggered, and I should switch off and contact AEG. Is there anything I can do? I am a qualified engineer. This happened once before and the techbnician apparently solved the problem very quickly (I wasn't at home) and charged quite a lot! Kel [email protected]

Switch off at the mains. Take a side panel off and tip your dishwater over 45degrees towards th open side. Make sure you put towels down to soak up the water that will come out of the base. This will reset the flood detector. Reassemble. Switch back on and let the dishwasher finish its cycle and away you go. Remember this does not solve the reason for the flooding but it will get your dishwasher going again. Depending on the cause of flooding you may only need to reset like this once a year.

    To the question of why the flooding is occuring:

    Make sure you take of the left hand (as you look from the front) side panel while you are carrying out the 'tipping' solution and check the large flat water circulating tank. Clogging by grease and grime reduces the effective cleaning ability of the dishwasher and causes the tank to overflow via the clear plastic (bottom right) pipe into the base of the machine.

    I found that by carefully rerouting the res wires round the back of the tank, removing the pipes from the bottom and then unclipping multiple clips around the edge that the tank hinges forwards and can then be lifted up and out for unclogging with pipecleaners, detergent and hot water. Rinse, reassemble in reverse making sure all the clips are properly home and do a trial cycle to watch the function of the circulation tank before putting the side back on.

    Make sure that drain filter and hose line is free not clogged so the water can drain out easy.

    Also take care of manuak instructions about anti-flood system

    "The anti-flood system provides dependable protection against damage

    due to leaks. For this system to function correctly, the following

    preconditions must be met:

    – The appliance must remain connected to the mains even when it is

    switched off.

    – The dishwasher must be correctly installed.

    – Always shut off the water supply at the tap when the dishwasher is

    not to be used for longer periods, e.g. when you are away on holiday."

I have an AEG F55002ViOP dishwasher. It's making a strange grinding sound and showing error code 30. Can anyone advise how to solve this please.

Error "i30" means that water remains in base because leakage or overflow. In this case, in order to prevent flooding, drain pump running continuously.
When we talk about AEG dishwasher, drain pump works even the power is turned off (must be connected to the wall outlet, otherwise anti-flooding system will not work).
The noise what you heard during operation indicates that something is blocking the drain pump.
Remedy: you should first remove the water from the bottom of the dishwasher and determine leakage then check why the drain pump makes noise.

If you work around the dishwasher, you always take care that appliance must be disconnected from the power supply.

Good luck.

Dishwasher wont fill up with water

When you start the dishwasher you have probably noticed that it first drains water and is very important to hear that drain pump running all the time or stops after a while? Why?
If the drain pump runs constantly then the fault is in the phase of "drain water" or is activated anti-flood system. Reset point of pressostat is not reached after max. 120secs. Programme stop and can be continued after error remedy by pressing the programme key.

If the pump is running for a while and then stops, then the fault is in phase "fill up water". Switchpoint of pressostat is not reached
after max. 60 secs.

Usually built-in dishwashers has anti-flood system that responds in the event of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Such a case, find and repair water leaks.

My dishwasher will start its wash progame and get stuck when it pumps the water out and the pump will still run

There is a leakage in the dishwasher and the flood switch triggers during wash. This causes the pump to operate and continue to run as the flood switch remains switched. Best to find the source of leak either from door seal or drain hose.

Bosch SHU runs even when the door is open, what do i need?

Hi Jeffrey,

This depends what you mean by "runs". If the dishwasher continues with a wash cycle - i.e. circulating water - with the door open, the simple answer is that you have a defective door microswitch.

However, I suspect what you perceive to be the dishwasher running, is actually the drain pump running continuously. This happens when the anti-flood protection system has been activated and continues even when the door is opened. The simplest way to check is to open the door (while it's "running") and pour some water into the tub. If the water drains away immediately, this shows the drain pump is running and the anti-flood protection has been activated.

This may be due to water having leaked into the base of the dishwasher, but it could be as simple as a stuck or defective float-switch.

Please try the simple test above then post back for further assistance. If you're planning to investigate or repair this yourself, you're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter would be useful as well.

Regards, BElectric

Dishwasher pump keeps running

This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

This seems like the anti flood system (polystireen float / micro switch) at the base of the washer is triggered,\. This puts the washer in pump out mode and stops inlet of water via the inlet solinoid. Dry the water on the base and then check for any water leaks. (pipe leak
