Hi and thank you for using Just Answer
After you replaced the board, did you reset the machine?
No, I don't know how to do that.
Ok ... that's fine, I'll tell you how.
In reading your note here, the float switch you moved is doing what it is suppose to. However did I read this right, that your machine started to fill with the door open?
Yes that's correct
Well, that's not suppose to happen ... so there could be two things going on ... 1] the door switch is faulty and telling the machine it is ok to fill, or 2] the board in which you received is wrong. Do you have the paper in which we can verify that it is the right one?
It's this one http://www.apart4u.co.uk/parts/aphs-bsh492685/so-nr-module-control.html
Thank you ... I'm going to check that out for you and here are the instructions to reset your machine. Cancel program (Reset)Only when the master switch is ON. Press the A and C programme buttons simultaneously and hold them pressed for approx. 3 sec. *** The programme continues for approx. 1 min. The PROGRAMME END indicator and the indicator for the programme that has just been terminated light up. *** Set main switch 1 to OFF. *** Close the detergent compartment 30 .To restart the dishwasher, set main switch 1 to ON again and select desired programme. Ok, if you have time to do this while I'm here great, and let me know when this is done. I'll look at that board for you.
The procedure had no effect. Lights stayed the same and water filled, programme never stopped. Sounds like the float is definitely working because it started draining then re-filling, draining then re-filling.
Ok, hold on for a sec ... let me look at something here
On a chance, while your machine is doing this, does it paulse?
Did you mean pulse? No, it is just the normal sounds of water filling and then it alternates between filling and draining.
That's fine ... well it sounds like you have a blockage in a hose from the filling tank to the sump
what happens is this hose blocks up so its slow at filling so what happens is the overflow in the filling tanks activates because the water isn't entering the tub fast enough so it brings the pump on in pluses
Not sure about that. I need to watch the float switch. I think the pulsing is the switch from fill to drain once the DW is "full". I'll take a look now
It will also effect the impellor jug. With your type of machine this is more common (it's also known as the flow meter)
it looks like this
The pulsing is the float switch
It's located on the inside just after the inlet valve
The best way to deal with this is to unplug it and plug it back in a few times, and on the final one, make sure the connection is tight.
If your machine is still doing this, then you'll have to replace this part. Beyond this part is the control board, and you already replaced that.
Speaking of which, I compared yours with others, and it looks like you received the correct one
How do I get to it. I have the left panel off at the moment and I can't see it.
It is next to the inlet valve ... if you can follow the main line into the machine, and it will take you to a electric valve. (inlet) next to that is where you should fine this part.
In looking at your machine, you may have to remove the bottom panel of your machine
Here is a link to a diagram list. It isn't the correct one, but these machines from model to model really don't change much. I hope this helps. http://www.neff-eshop.com/eshop/neff/gb/prodp.htm?prod=S5444X1GB%2f29&ESHOPTYPE=A
The part is located on page 5
Impeller seems to be working . I disconnected and ran the DW and could see the difference of the water flow.
Ok, does it still fill and drain
Actually, just saw the diagram. I think I'm looking at the wrong thing.
It's getting late. Can I restart this conversation again tomorrow?
Yes, I'm going to switch this to Q&A so we can have more time. Thanks
Just follow the directions, and I'll get your replies.
Did what you said for the impeller.It has made no difference. I think its time for a new DW
I did replace it, but it made no difference. I can't keep buying more parts on the chance it will fix it, so I'm going to call it quits.
