Baumatic dishwasher troubleshooting
|PROBLEM||POSSIBLE CAUSES||WHAT TO DO|
|Dishwasher doesn’t run||Fuse blown or the circuit breaker has tripped||Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Remove any other appliances that are sharing the same circuit with the dishwasher.|
|Power supply is not switched on||Make sure that the dishwasher is turned on and that the door is closed securely.
Make sure that the power cord is fully plugged into the wall socket.
|Water pressure is low||Check that the water supply is connected properly and that the water is turned on.|
|Drain pump doesn’t stop||Overflow||The system is designed to detect an overflow. If it does, then it will run the drain pump continuously when there is power to the appliance.|
|Noise||Some audible sounds are normal||You will get a level of operating noise during a wash cycle, in particular when food is being removed from items and when the detergent dispenser places the tablet into the tub.|
|Utensils are not secure in the baskets or something small has dropped into the basket||Ensure that everything is loaded as per Baumatic’s loading instructions.|
|Motor hums||If the dishwasher is not going to be used for a period of time, then you should make sure that the appliance is set on a wash program once aweek. Otherwise the seal around motor may dry out and cause noise.|
|Suds in the tub||Improper detergent use||Ensure that you are not using 3 in 1 detergent tablets, in conjunction with rinse aid and salt.|
|Spilled rinse aid||Always wipe up any excess rinse aid or rinse aid spillages immediately.|
|Stained tub interior||Detergent with colourant was used||Use a detergent without colourant.|
|Dishes are not fully dried||Rinse aid dispenser is empty||Make sure that the rinse aid dispenser is filled with rinse aid.|
|Dishes and pans are not clean||Improper program||Select a more intense wash program.|
|Improper loading||Make sure that the spray arms and the detergent dispenser are not being impeded by large dishes.|
|Spots and filming on glasses and pans||Extremely hard water Low inlet temperature Improper loading Improper detergent Incorrect salt/rinse aid levels||Make sure to ensure that the detergent, salt and rinse aid levels are set correctly. Ensure that the appliance is loaded correctly.|
|Steam||A normal phenomenon||You may get a small amount of steam coming through the vent by the door latch, during drying and water draining.|
|Black or grey marks on dishes||Aluminium utensils have rubbed against dishes||Use a mild abrasive cleaner to eliminate the marks. Make sure that the appliance is loaded correctly in future.|
|Water standing in the bottom of the tub||This is normal||A small amount of clean water in the base of the appliance is not something to be concerned about.|
|Dishwasher leaks||The rinse aid dispenser is overfilled or rinse aid has been spilt inside the appliance||Take care not to overfill the rinse aid dispenser. Spilt rinse aid could cause oversudsing and lead to overflowing.
Wipe away any spills immediately with a damp cloth.
|Dishwasher isn’t level||Make sure that the dishwasher is level.|
