SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump

SOURCE: Neff dishwasher sticks on 1 minute

We had this problem with our machine.
There turned out to be a few things that caused it:

- Firstly, the float assembly (an orange looking float in a little chamber, visible if you take off the left-hand panel of the machine) was clogged - we cleaned this and it seemed to help.
- The heat exchanger matrix was full of debris - we tried to clean this but ended up damaging it and bought a new one.

.. these two things seemed to improve the cleaning and the machine worked for a while.

The real problem though (which caused it to pump out continuously) turned out to be a failed seal on the circulation pump.

If you look on page 4 of the following link:

https://www.neff-eshop.com/eshop/neff/gb/prodp.htm?eShopType=S&prod=S5456X3GB%2f22

.. you will see a diagram of the bottom of the machine - the part that failed was 171598, which you can see on the bottom middle-to-right hand side of the picture..
The rubber had perished very badly, and it was causing water to leak into the bottom of the machine, which triggers 'flood mode' whereby it pumps continuously and doesn't actually wash the dishes.

The part costs about £5 - fitting it is not straightforward though, as you need to strip the machine down which is a pretty involved job.
If you think you're up to it, the steps I followed were:

- Remove both side panels
- On the left hand side, remove heat exchanger matrix and float assembly
- Remove kick-panel under the front door
- On the right hand side, remove all wiring from the door to the machine (including an earthing wire which is screwed to the side of the machine) - note that there are two wires which go to push-on connectors which have to be removed separately - all the others go to connector blocks.
- Inside the machine, remove the wire baskets, spray arm and bottom filter.
- Remove the lid from the salt dispenser - and now the tricky part, you need to find something that will allow you to remove the large plastic 'nut' that holds the salt dispenser to the machine.
- Remove the two screws in the bottom of the machine (167241 in the diagram mentioned above)
- Now, shut the door and then disconnect the door spring mechanism from the left and right side of the door.
- Disconnect the string from the door closing mechanism from the springs at the left and right back corners, under the machine.
- Remove the two screws at the back of the machine which connect the top of the machine to the base.
- Remove the two screws at the front of the machine which connect the top of the machine to the base (these are quite low down, near the door hinges).

Now, you should be able to lift the top of the machine off the base, and will have access to the pump etc.


... re-assembly is the reverse of disassembly ;-)

This took me a couple of hours - it might be better to find somebody who will do it for you for fixed cost as it's a pig of a job.


For what it's worth, there seemed to be very few places where the machine could leak - and this looked to be the major one - and there are a few push-fit pipes which are worth checking out too.


Hope this helps somebody.

SOURCE: dishwasher not starting when door closes

What your saying is suggesting a water supply issue. The Model number you've given can not be found on the Neff website.

You will need to disconnect power, turn the water supply off (under sink or behind dishwasher), disconnect the water line, put the end of the hose in a bucket or cup, turn water back on slowly and make sure water flows. Turn back off. If water flows -

Then check that there is not a restriction in the water solenoid valve. If you know how to use a multimeter, check the water valve solenoid for continuity.

Plug the unit back in, and initiate a wash cycle, and watch for voltage applied to the water solenoid valve. If you get voltage, you should hear the valve open.
Power the unit off, connect the water line, and repower the unit. Check again if water does or doesnt flow.

Let me know what you find.

check filter or drain hose it probably have a dirt,try to fill with water manually and turn on pump to dispossess water,if water not go out and pump work then you have dirt in hose or filter,if pump not work then pump is broken.

Won't drain all the water, the machine stops and the red light flashes


I have just had the same problem. Dishwasher on as normal, no water going in-EEEEk, did everything the manual said to clean drain pump and non return value, no change. Then I read answer above from wcredentino and low and behold, dishwasher immediately started and no call to service man tomorrow- yay, thanks 'wcredtino' However, for me, holding both buttons at once didn't work, reset occurred when I held the on/off switch down for 5 seconds- when I held it down with the start/stop button the problem persisted.

Thankyou!

There is now an electrical smell


Can't see what your original problem was but the electrical smell could be the power connection in the junction box in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have had several burn the wires here.
Also, not sure of the age of d'washer. some of the older ones had an issue where the wires come up into the door. look at the harness where it goes thru the bottom of the door.

Check electricy and water supply to appliance. You may have a problem with the:

Contact an appliance service company.

My Whirlpool DU1055XTSQ has stopped working. The


Check that the door switch is operating properly, open and close the door a few times, push in on the door with a good amount of force while trying to start the machine, the door switch will not let control power to the panel if it is not getting triggered, to let the processor know that the door is closed and it can start the cycle.

Good Luck !

Water not getting hot


Start checking the element. (assuming you have a tester).If reading is good,(approx. 20-40 ohms).then check for a reset switch. Normall a red push to resed button or if there is continuity.. From there it can only be the board which outputs the heater voltage.

Pum continue running and never end cycle


Ok,

So you know how to get to the float mechanism. I also noticed that when i lifted the red anti flood pole the pump keeps going & also the float will not move because if you add water to the small chambe it runs away as it should do. The next thing i tried was to unplug the electronic float switch. I use alot of these devices in my line of work & sometimes they stick. By unpluging it & seemed to do the trick once reinserted the pump has stopped. To double check just lift the red pole & the pump will start again as if it has registered a flood alert. Problem solved & £300 better off. Note if it still runs after this, the switch could be at fault they cost pennies to replace. Good luck

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.
