Can you give me the product code please and I'll have a look at the diagrams and come back to you - Ian
You should have a product code on the rating label starting with either 4, 5 or 7, as an example it could be###-##-#### ***** IDW604 is just a model number that tells me its a integrated dishwasher 60 cm wide version 4 it doesnt actually tell me its specifications.
Sorry just back from work - OK without the product data I'm going to have to do some research will come back to you in about 15 mins or so.
OK I just had to check something before responding as there are variations on the built in units. Do you have the user handbook or has that been lost?
No I have found what I wanted and for future reference the product code for your appliance is###-##-####/p>
If you refer to page 2 of the handbook it states -- under control pane - l button 4 Half Washing Key-press. Selecting this feature means that the lower spray arm does not run, only the upper spray bar.
I think perhaps this is your problem??
Laughs - why do you think I'm sitting in the office doing this - 'this is my kitchen darling go do some work was the recent reply' come back to me when you have time to check things. I'm back on tomorrow if you miss me later.
OK in that case the circulating pump which is fitted with the diverter valve, the main pcb or the wiring between the two is faulty. If the pump is not receiving a voltage from the main pcb or the wires between the two are broken where they pass at 90degrees under the door the valve will not be energised.
Don't know who he is must be based in the USA - this is what I would do - make up a lead with a spade connector on the neutral and live. Then you will have to take the appliance out again and lay it on its back - take the base of taking care not to damage the flood protecton switch that is attached to the base with two screws. Now check that you have no wires frayed as the cables swing under the door and into the base area. Come back to me when youve got both the cable made up and checked the wires.
OK 13amp plug on the end of one end of a piece of old three core cable at least .75mm on the other end strip back the outer sheath to expose the three wires N L E Now put two female 6.3mm spade connectors on the end. I want to test the diverter valve on the circulating pump.
Copy and paste the following link into your browser - if you look at the lower picture you will see a black circular thing with two metal spade connectors sticking out of the top ?? -- https://www.partmaster.co.uk/dishwasher/idw604-444445898/recirculation-pump/product.pl?pid=1397677&shop=belling&path=297877&refine=pump&model_ref=440857
OK noting where the solenoid valve cables are fitted (two of them) remove and connect up your flying lead, not too improtant which terminal goes to which tag then connect to the main and tell me if you hear a buzz?
You have a diverter valve fitted to the circulation pump that feeds water to both the top and bottom spray bars. If an electric supply does not power up the solenoid valve (that I have asked you to test) and open the gate then you will only get water coming out of one spray bar.
We may find that the diverter valve is OK or that its coil has gone open circuit, if so we can work around it and get you up and running again once we know what the problem is - speak to you on Monday - have a great weekend.
Its 220-240 volt solenoid Michael. On my second pot of tea takes my eyes a couple to get going (laughs)
Must have been a system glitch Michael but rest assured I am based in the UK - its the middle of the night way out there (its when we get the peace and tranquility) so how are we doing?
Good man - I think what happens is that the calls are directed to the American server first and then back to the UK one and things get lost 'in the post' so to speak. I will be heading off to work at 10am so if I miss you I will catch up later I should be back at about 2-30pm
No usually there are no problems if you use a No1 philips screwdriver
OK with the cable still connected to the solenoid but hanging out the back and the original cables insulated and out of the way put the dishwasher on and see if both spray bars are now rotating - give it a minute or two to get circulating. If they are then you have to follow the cables up from the solenoid to the main pcb in the door and check that you have continuity to the board. The fact that the cables are covered doesnt mean that the cable hasnt broken - the constant flexing is enough to break them.
OK if you have no supply through the spray bar when the valve is energized by seperate lead then the circulating pump is faulty. It a new pump Im afraid, time for a think I guess - the dishwasher is quite old and made in China for Belling. I think we have gone as far as we can so would you kindly rate the information given by selecting from the star rating system at the top of the page. Once done you can come back to me at any time for furter help if needed. Thank you for using JA and have a good day - Ian
Without a doubt Bosch when it comes to dishwasher they are about as good as you get for the vast majority of other makes they are rebadged Chinese Midea like you own.
Yes and the legs spindley too - quite often the kitchen fitters seem to tighten up so tight that the cogs start to jump as you try to undo them too. To be honest not a very robust machine or design.
