Question about Dishwashers

2 Answers

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We tipped the dishwasher and a little water ran out. The machine then switched on and appeared to be running ok until it was time to drain and now it won't drain at all. Have located the float. What do I do with it?

I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.
take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.
most machines have a float switch in the base so that if water leaks, all that will happen is that the drain pump runs and i think this is what you are hearing

Forget the float - as long as its not raised then its ok
can you hear the drain pump running or can you hear a low hum when supposed to be draining?

Pour boiling water over the panel and dispenser, it is just sticking most likely from sludge.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes. Some soap remains in soap dish. Have tried on the enrgy saver cycle and 1 hour cycle.


Hi jerry1413,

Firstly, make sure you are using powdered soap, and not the 3 in 1 tablets. The 3 in 1 Tablets only release certain parts of itself on certain temperatures, and because all dishwashers aren't alike, they won't have the best of results on all makes & models. Cycles aren't run the same way on every Make, and don't follow the same order either. Trust Me ;-) , stick to Powder.

Furthermore, check the following link for some advice and suggestions on getting your dishwasher to clean properly again:

Kind Regards :-)

Asko D3230 dishwasher pump will not turn off, with main switch on


This is a anti flood activation. It is a safety device (polystireen float and micro switch at the base of the washer) that keeps the drain motor running due to water leak / spill detection. Dry the water and rectify the leak (normaly pipe or clamp leak) and this should solve the problem.

Washing tablet found unused on the bottom of the dishwasher...


Put the tablet in the bottom of the washer ,do a wash cycle,if the tablet is used up the washer is not releasing the tablet till the end of the wash, if the tablet is still there the water is too hard or the tablet is faulty.

SMEG DISHWASHER - SUPPLIER CODE : SA8605XTD


Hi, I don't usually put the tablet in the door holder. I just place it in the bottom of the washer . I aways am concerned that there will be soap residue. So this way utensils are getting washed as soon a the washer commences .I usually scrape debris off plates and utensils before I put them in the dishwasher. This works well. Hope this works well for you. Teresa

Dishes not being cleaned properly - large portion of tablet still remaining in the bottom


I have a 4114 and the problem was not enough water entering the washer. You can check by adding extra water (kettle full) to the washer just after start. ( opening the door just suspends the cycle) If your dishes clean well then you will need to adjust the pressure level switch to allow more water in. There is an adjustment screw on the switch which needs to be turned 1/4- 1/2 a turn. This puts more tension on the spring so more water needs to enter before the switch is activated. On the 4114 the switch has 2 adjusters. It is the taller of the 2 that require adjusting. Do little turns until the water level just covers the filters.
