Common Problems

CDA dishwasher problems can include all of the following. Look at CDA dishwasher troubleshooting below:

  • CDA dishwasher not draining
  • When your dishwasher won’t drain this could be due to a blockage such as obstructions in the filter caused by food remnants. Or the hose located at the back of the dishwasher could be damaged or blocked – preventing the water from draining away.

    The drain hose may be fitted incorrectly – if it’s positioned too low the pump won’t work. And if the spigot on the sink outlet has been disconnected the water won’t drain. A dishwasher pump blocked will need to be cleaned – and may need updating.

    Other reasons can be related to the check valve in the drain sump, the motor, and the drain solenoid. A trained technician will be able to source the cause of the drainage issue and fix it for you.

  • CDA dishwasher not cleaning well
  • When your dishes and glasses won’t clean, this could be due to the stain screen, sprayer arms, or door gasket holding grease, food remnants, and other debris. Low water pressure can also cause cleaning issues. Another problem could be the upper discharge housing gasket which can become loose – and spray arms can become stuck and unable to move freely.

    Glasses that come out cloudy or white point to hard water build-up. Hard water softeners designed for such problems can be added to prevent this from happening.

  • CDA dishwasher won’t start
  • Fuses, sockets, circuit breakers, and wiring all needs to be checked when your appliance simply won’t start. A qualified electrician will safely do this for you. Bear in mind that your dishwasher won’t start if the door latch or door latch switch is faulty – this is a safety feature to prevent flooding. The door needs to be closed properly.

    If the drain pump motor isn’t starting up this indicates a potential problem with the timer or the electronic control.

  • CDA dishwasher is leaking
  • Serious leaks can cause damage to your property so this is an issue that needs immediate fixing. Cracks and damage to the drainage hose could be the problem – or gaskets within the heating element. A defective pump or pump seal may also be the cause. The door gasket may also need replacing if not fitting properly.

  • CDA dishwasher won’t fill with water
  • The water inlet valve may be stopping the water needed to operate your appliance from getting in. The float and the float switch may also be malfunctioning. There may be difficulties with the water supply which may require expert help and advice.

  • CDA dishwasher rinse light stays on
  • The manufacturer recommends the use of separate detergent, rinse aid, and dishwasher salt rather than combination tablets. This may be the cause of the display and the rinse aid setting may need to reset to the minimum level.
