Baumatic offer a range of space-saving appliances that still provide up to 12 programmes and features such as half load options. With triple wash zones that activate two extra spray arms, and delay starts that help save energy and money, these dishwashers are perfect for busy lifestyles.
New technology ensures quiet operation, safety aqua stops, and quick click upper basket options. So, what do you do when things don’t happen as they should? Read on to find out more about Baumatic dishwasher problems and troubleshooting…
Common Problems with Baumatic Dishwashers
On occasion, random numbers appear in the LED display which have no relation to the fault codes illustrated in the manufacturer’s guide. These may include 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05,06,07,09, and 0A. If number 17 appears this indicates that the delay button has been pressed prior to the power button.
To clear these errors the dishwasher will need to be retuned. To reset a Baumatic dishwasher the following steps will need to be taken:
- Turn off the power button
- Turn the dishwasher back on holding the P button down
- Release the button when the appliance activates
If this doesn’t solve the problem, you’ll need to contact an appliance repair technician.
Baumatic Dishwasher Error Codes
Dishwasher E4 error is shown when the water level exceeds the set level. This causes the overflow water to trigger the lower float resulting in the dishwasher operation being stopped.
Unfortunately, there are a number of factors which can cause a dishwasher leak that also flashes an E4 error code on the dishwasher. An experienced engineer will check for:
- Water getting into the appliance via the overflow tube due to the dishwasher not sitting levelly
- Water splitting into the internal tubes during the washing process
- The door opening and closing process which may cause water to enter the external overflow
- Excessive foam from inappropriate washing detergent used
- The difference in pressure when door opens or closes at high temperatures
Bear in mind that any residual water lying in the base of the dishwasher will need to be expertly removed – and at this time any potential leaks can be identified.
Other fault codes include:
- E1 – the dishwasher water intake has timed out
- E2 – the appliance has timed out on draining
- E3 – water hasn’t been heated in the allotted time
- E5 – dishwasher can’t automatically switch off
- E6 – the thermistor has an open circuit
- E7 – the thermistor has short-circuited
A repair technician will investigate for:
- Issues with the water supply
- Faulty valves, wiring, and with the electronic controller
- Blocked drain pumps and drain hoses
- Defective heating elements, thermostats, and thermistors
- Power switch failure
Other Baumatic Dishwasher Troubleshooting
Baumatic dishwasher problems with beeping can indicate that there’s been a power outage or power surge. This may need the appliance to be reset as defined above. Built-in electronic sensors on modern appliances ensure that beeping noises alert the user that something is wrong.
Beeping can be due to:
- Opening the dishwasher door before the cycle was complete
- No addition of rinse aid or coarse salt
- Wear and tear on reed sensors to spray arms
- Faults with the pressure switch or flow meter
