Hi, I have a Neff dishwasher S5444X1GB which stops after filling (circulating pump does not start). Originally, the circulating pump was leaking, so I removed it, fitted new seals etc and refitted it. I was disappointed to find then that it did not start at all (although it seemed to be ok on the bench). I therefore assumed that the capacitor or motor had failed and bought a secondhand replacement. I have fitted this, but it does not work either. Is it possible that a filling level switch is faulty (the machine does stop filling after a few minutes), or a relay? How should I proceed?
Yes, I have a meter.
Thanks for the positive response, before I rate you would you please confirm how I should test the old motor - when I put 240V across terminals 1 and 3 before, the motor did not start, but it did run when I gave it a spin (no impeller or other load on). Likewise terminals 1 and 2.
I have just tried the same again, with the impeller fitted (hence some resistance), and although it is trying, the motor does not run. Have I got the right terminals?
I have only tested the old motor. I was assured that the 'new' motor was fine and had been tested, so I have not done anything to that. I can test the new motor but I still need some guidance on how you would like it done.
Which wires should I test for power - there are 3?
As soon as the dishwasher is turned on, there is power to the motor, between the brown lead and each of the other two. How do I test the motor?
