Hi, I am looking for the instructions on how to use the diagnostic mode in this dishdrawer. I have pulled the drawers out, expecting to find them on the back of one of the drawers... to no avail :(

I see that they are on servicetech.com but being a lowly grasshopper, I can't access them.

Any one able to help?

I thought I had fixed a flood switch problem by drying up some excess water underneath the bottom drawer. I initially thought this was because of washing a couple of oversize dinner plates (ie lid couldn't close properly) but then it happened again about 16 hours after the last time I had run it, which suggested to me that there may be a leak in a hose somewhere.

I pulled both drawers out and I could see a very small amount of moisture had reappeared on the base, but I couldn't see any obvious leaks in any pipes, they were all dry to touch. I was hoping to run it in diagnostic mode to watch it fill and drain to locate any possible leaks.

I also pulled the mains filter board and flood switch out and had a bit of a peekyboo and couldn't see any other problems (corrosion etc) although I did just bend the wires holding the flood switch just a little, in the hope that it would sit a little higher and maybe be a little less sensitive to moisture (hey it seemed like a good idea at the time)

Any other ideas/thoughts would be very appreciated

The attached sheet has instructions for entering diagnostic mode. One caution: do not leave the unit on the Er step for more than 5 seconds or you'll burn out your heater.

As simple as this may have been for our collegue from downunder, I have worked on the same integrated model and can't clear the flood code using the diagnostic guidance you provided.   I can again disassemble to check for new moisture if that's a critical aspect you'd suggest.

Without any LCD display, and evidently being none too nimble with my timing when following the keys sequence, the error remains.  Is there somthing about the Keylock to StartPause that's tricky?  Of course, the code is affecting electronics on both drawers, so it seems like one may be clearing, but then the other kicks in and screws up the first.  Any further wisdom?

If this fault is coming up on both drawers it is most likely the flood sensor on the mains filter that is the source of your problem.

I suggest you remove the board from the machine and check that the sensor on the end is totally dry. Also dry the base under the plastic chassis it sits in. Make sure there is no fracture of the solder on the links between the sensor and the board.

Refit the board, connect up and turn on the power to the machine. Do not turn the machine on but wait 60 secs to see if it starts beeping again.

Because the sensor operates independantly of the drawers it will show the fault on both drawers and activate the drain pumps on both.

If it starts beeping change the mains filter board. If not try running first the bottom drawer for about 5 mins then pause it. Check the side and rear of the drawer for leaks. Don't be fooled by the water dripping off the lid though. If all looks ok try the same test with the top drawer.

let us know how you get on.
