I have a Kenwood dishwasher showing an 'E4' error. I found

Hi I have a Kenwood dishwasher showing an 'E4' error. I found water in the base which I have drained, I have tested the foam sensor in the base which I presume detects water and that seems to be working. I have replaced the drain motor as that was leaking but E4 error is still appearing. Any ideas pleaseMany thanksPete

BEKO DW603 Over the weekend my dishwasher has stopped

BEKO DW603Over the weekend my dishwasher has stopped working and now when turning it on and starting a programme runs the drainage pump for 45 secs to a minute, and then nothing else happens. After about 2-3 mins, the play symbol on the control panel goes out and the drainage pump starts running again, for the same time period. The dishwasher then continues to run in this way until turning the power off.I have checked the base of the unit, and there is no water. The anti flood switch is not operated and appears to be working ok. There is no sign of any of the pumps being blocked, nor any of the pipework running to and from the pumps. The water inlet pipe is clear and there is a good flow of water.If I hold down the start / pause button and then turn the device on and continue to hold these buttons, I think the dishwasher goes into the test mode, i.e. all lights turn on and then P6 shows as the programme. If I then press play, the inlet valve opens and water flows into the machine, it then activates the drain pump and the water is pumped out of the machine. However, this is where the test seems to stop and it also goes into the same cycle as above.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Cheers, Chris

I've got a Beko DWD4311W dishwasher which failed in service

HiI've got a Beko DWD4311W dishwasher which failed in service with the drain pump running continuously. Sure enough, when I pulled the machine out, the base was full of water. I removed the (only??) float switch from the base to find the microswitch inside it was burned out. I also noticed that the return pipe from the fan suction pipe back to the sump was well and truly blocked.I replaced the microswitch, cleaned out the pipe and re-assembled the machine. When starting it now, the drain pump runs for ~25 seconds before stopping (from my best recollection, this is normal behaviour), but the machine won't then fill.I have put power directly onto the fill solenoid valve, which then opens and permits a strong flow of water (thereby exonerating the valve, feed pipe and isolation tap). Noticing too that door switches are problematic, I have opened and closed the door during the ~25 sec pump run, and that stops and restarts the pump run as expected, thereby exonerating the door switch. I've also poured a couple of pints of water directly into the machine, and can confirm that the drain pump clears this quickly, ruling out a stalled or blocked pump, blocked outlet pipe etc. The sump is also visibly empty.I've really no idea where to go next. I'm thinking that the issue somehow still relates to the float switch, but I can't see how the float switch (which is outside of the sump) can be used to control the water level inside it??Any help would be appreciated!Thanks & regardsPeter

I have a Beko DCU6130B condenser dryer. its a 2013 model so

I have a Beko DCU6130B condenser dryer. its a 2013 model so not one for the recall. When you press the button it beeps 3 times. I know the child lock is 2 beeps when active so its not that (i can press both to activate child lock, and deactivate). I've checked the red clips are in properly. I've had the dryer out and taken the pipes off the back (1 to water tank overflow, had a blck which is now gone) . Ensured the tank at the bottom is empty too and the float is free to move about. The switch (float) seems to be moving ok, not sure if i can bypass this if needed. I've asked Beko online but am unable to find out what 3 beeps could mean. Happy to get someone to come out but i'm a telecoms engineer to like to make sure i've done everything i can before i start replacing the circuit boards etc. If 3 beeps means total failure then fine, but no one seems to know? help :-)
