The answer is that you don't reset the anti-flood device. The anti-flood device re-sets itself when there is no risk of a leak. I don't really understand why you emptied the salt tank . . . ?

I cannot help you any further than this as you haven't specified your brand and model of dishwasher. If you can post these, I will try try to help further - if it's a model I support.

Hello

Most faults can be referred to the fact that the Anti Flood Overflow device has activated.

Modern day dishwashers like those manufactured that have a built in safety feature protecting the dishwasher against flooding. The technical term is 'Anti Flood Device'.

In the base of the dishwasher in the plinth there is a float switch. This is your 'Anti Flood Device'. In the event of your dishwasher over filling, the plinth fills with water, the float rises and actuates the switch.

Firstly, it will send a signal to the programmer device to notify there is a fault and output a message in the form of a code to some sort of display.

Secondly, the pressure switch acts as the water level indicator for the sump of the dishwasher so when the water level rises the pressure switch will activate the drain pump.

So before you consider throwing good money at new dishwasher, try doing a bit of fault finding your self and you might save yourself a ton of money.

How do i fix error code AE on LG washer/dryer f1407adsp5


Hi.

Error AE is prompted when there is a leak detected at the base of the appliance or when the anti flood safety device gets activated.

Disconnect power by unplugging power cord or resetting circuit breaker.

While power is off remove any water present at the base of the appliance.

If there is no water, check the pressure switch, wiring and control board for faults that may result in error AE. Check also setting of the drain hose at the back (it may cause siphoning), and make sure that inlet valve is not leaking.

Regards.

Water supply to my Bosch SHE43CO5UC/17 dishwasher seems interrupted and not being supplied to the unit. Water supply to the unit is checked and confirmed available. What are the possible causes, i.e. stuck...


Could be a dirty hose filter or faulty inlet valve. Ther could be a leak and the bottom of the unit has flooded activating the flood safety which will cut the water supply. The pressure chamber and/or the hose pressure chamber to sumo could be block (take of left side panel and these are at the bottom right). Finally, the aquastop (grey box connected to the mains water supply that feeds the d/w) could be activated, faulty or fitted in the wrong position
Hope this gives you some where to start..

Srs4312gb constantly trying to empty sump even though empty will not start any other program


This seems to be that the Anti Flood system has triggered. This device detects water leaks / spills to the bottom of the washer and automatically puts the washer in pump out mode and shuts off the water inlet. The device is made up of a pollystireene float and micro switch that activates once the float detects any leaks / spillage. Dry water and check for leaks and this should solve the problem

Our dishwasher does not seem to be getting any


The anti flood device (polystireene plate and micro switch) when activated due to water leak on floor of washer, shuts off the water inlet valve and puts the drain pump on. Determine if any water has leaked to the floor of the washer and is activating this switch. Dry the water and rectify any leak. The water inlet valve (solinoid) could also be faulty although this is not common.

Keeps flooding: pump comes on when switched off.


This sounds like an inlet valve problem, Replace it. Often a dirt particle gets in the valve.

Water inlet hose not letting water through to the machine


that's probably a flood-safe type hose ... most of them reset after you remove it and re-install where it connects to the faucet, but you have already swapped it . try removing it and reinstalling it , then turn water supply on slowly

My bosch dishwasher does not fill with water (although it drains)


most bosch have the inlet valve at the end of the fill pipe and it has an anti-flood device.
try turning off the water, take off the fill pipe then reconnect it and see if this works.
taking off the fill pipe resets the anti-flood device
