Gaggenau dishwasher troubleshooting
Dishwasher won’t start
Reasons for this happening include a defective door latch. If the door won’t close securely due to a damaged switch mechanism the appliance won’t start for safety reasons. A faulty timer could be the culprit – this can stop the proper voltage from being sent during the cycle. Bear in mind that the dishwasher won’t start if you’ve accidentally turned on the child lock.
It could also be an electrical related issue due to a damaged cord, faulty power socket, or the incoming power supply. All of these can quickly be identified and resolved by an electrical engineer.
Dishwasher not draining
This can be caused by a broken drain impeller which results in the appliance being unable to push water through the drain hose to empty. Other components that need inspecting are the drain pump, the drain solenoid kit, and the drain valve.
Problems may be occurring with the pump and motor assembly, the check valve, or the water pump belt. These issues can all be diagnosed and quickly fixed by an experienced appliance repair technician.
Components that can contribute to leaking include a jammed water inlet valve, a cracked centre, upper, or lower wash arm assembly, a door gasket that isn’t making proper contact, or a faulty door seal.
Dishwasher buttons not working
If the dishwasher display is working but some or all of the touchpad buttons aren’t, this indicates that the touchpad itself is faulty. You may have to purchase the touchpad and control panel at the same time – your repair technician will sort this for you.
If there’s a problem with the main control board which regulates nearly every function, the correct voltage may not be sent to the touchpad. This will need expertly diagnosing before replacing.
Dishwasher lights flashing or blinking
The reasons for this happening can be the water not reaching the proper temperature because the heating element has burned out. This can also apply to the heating element assembly. A defective drain pump can cause lights to flash, as can a faulty touchpad and control panel.
