Grundig Dishwasher Problems And Troubleshooting

Grundig dishwashers have an entire range of time-saving technologies that never compromise on cleaning performance. Low noise levels and highly efficient energy ratings mean they’re environmentally friendly too.

So what do you do when your dishwasher isn’t operating as it should? Look at some Grundig dishwasher problems and troubleshooting here...

Grundig dishwasher troubleshooting

Grundig dishwasher not draining

If water remains in your dishwasher at the end of the programme this indicates that the filters are clogged and the filter system requires cleaning. Other causes can be a blockage in the discharge hose which will need to be cleared or an obstruction in the drain pump which will need to be taken apart.

Grundig dishwasher not filling

If there’s not any water in your dishwasher the problem may lie with the water supply connection or the inlet hose. Other components that can cause your dishwasher not to fill are the water inlet valve which can become blocked or damaged and the float switch which monitors the water level. If the float itself gets stuck, the float switch is unable to disengage, preventing water from getting into your appliance.

Grundig dishwasher with no water light

The check water light is an indication that there’s an issue with the water supply or drainage and a sign that your appliance has overfilled with water and is leaking. If your dishwasher is displaying that there’s no water this may have been triggered by your appliance being unable to fill (see above).

Grundig dishwasher buttons not working

If some of the buttons respond but others don’t this indicates that there’s a problem with the touchpad, which may need replacing. If your dishwasher display is working but some of the buttons still won’t respond, the touchpad and the control panel might need to be replaced. Alternatively, the main control board may be unable to send voltage to the touchpad causing these issues.

Grundig dishwasher not working

When your appliance won’t start the cause is typically related to the incoming power supply. Checks will need to be safely made on power cables, sockets, switches, and fuses. Other reasons can be due to the door not being closed securely or an issue with the water supply.

Grundig dishwasher not heating

The heating element will need to be tested here as this is the component that heats the water. Deposits of limescale can cause the element to fail prematurely and a multimeter will be needed to test the resistance. Other problems can be related to a faulty thermostat whose job is to regulate the water temperature throughout the wash programme. If this part is defective your dishwasher won’t know when to turn the heating element on.

Grundig dishwasher leaking

If your dishwasher has a leak, the anti-flood protection may have been activated, stopping the inlet valve from functioning. Other common causes for leakage are the door hinge and seals which normally have a hinge pulley system that stops the door from falling open. If the door becomes loose or heavy these parts may need replacing.

Grundig dishwasher not washing dishes clean

There are a number of reasons for this and they include:

  • Impellers are stuck or impeller holes are blocked
  • Filters are incorrectly installed or clogged
  • Baskets are overloaded
  • Detergent or rinse aid isn’t sufficient
