UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Dish washer model FAVORIT35085VI, Type 911D93-OL. Beeps three (3) times repeatedly and "end of cycle" light flashes thrice repeatedly; as per the book, the anti-flood system has been triggered. Is it likely that the inlet solenoid valve is letting water through or is the "anti-flood" system faulty? Any tips on determining which is which would be appreciated. Kind regards, XXXXX XXXXX

This sounds like the anti flood device if it keeps pumping out.
Is this machine integrated or free standing please?
This machine is free standing. It is just over three (3) years in service, bought from new.
The machine was put into operation to wash the dishes last Sunday (28th April) and was found in the anti-flood cycle (as later found out) when the tenants came back home in the afternoon.
It sounds like the machine has water in the base, where the pumps are.
This sets the flood guard and the discharge pump will run continuously in an effort to protect the electrics in the base.Turn off the electric.Pull machine forward.Put towels down behind the machine.Tilt machine back at 45 degrees.Water will come out the back.The machine should now be reset.If this re occurs you have a leak and will need to find it and rectify it .

Thank you for your reply. I will do your recommendation and will revert to you in due course.
Could I rate you after I will have carried out your above recommendation?
If this is not possible then I shall do it as soon as you reply.
Thank you for your patience,
I shall do that. I think I may have given you some wrong information with regard to the "stand alone" issue, I may have misunderstood that.
It is a built-in appliance, part of the kitchen unit and it is not a straight forward procedure pulling it out (perhaps that does not make it a stand-alone one then). It will take some time to pull forward, remove the hoses, etc. and I thought I'd rate you afterwards. No problem though, I could do it now.
Turn off the electric.Remove the lower kick panel, under the main door.
Look in there. It should be dry and I think its wet.
Carefully dry this area out
The machine should now be reset.If this re occurs you have a leak and will need to find it and rectify it .
