Diplomat dishwasher troubleshooting
Diplomat dishwasher beeping
This indicates that the flow meter inside the filling tank isn’t picking up the flow of water entering your appliance. The pressure sensor may be defective, or there may be an obstructed filter, a full drip tray, or issues with power surges.
Otherwise, if the beeping starts as soon as you close the door, then the reset and select a new programme hasn’t been carried out. You need to reset the dishwasher by holding down the button until the start light goes out, then select a new programme. Press start and close the door.
If there is a continuing problem you may need a replacement main control board which your local appliance repair engineer can easily do for you.
Diplomat dishwasher leaking
Leaks can be caused by a damaged door seal, a defective door latch, problems with the anti-flood device, or when excessive amounts of detergent have been used.
Diplomat dishwasher not heating
This can be due to a faulty heating element or thermostat. Heating elements can suffer from electrical faults and can burn out, needing to be replaced. If the thermostat is defective the heating element won’t turn on and the water will stay cold – resulting in tableware still being dirty and wet.
Diplomat dishwasher not draining
Draining issues can be due to the filter being blocked with food remnants, a drain connection may have become insecure, or the drain hose clamp disconnected. The electronic solenoid that controls the drain valve may have experienced a fault that’s caused the valve to jam. Other issues may be power-related – all of these concerns can be quickly identified and resolved by an experienced engineer.
Diplomat dishwasher not filling
Insufficient water also results in poor cleaning and can be caused by a defective water inlet, or an obstruction in the water hose. Water valve inlets can also become clogged. Alternatively, the float may have become stuck in the raised position.
Diplomat dishwasher isn’t washing
A faulty motor diverter valve will prevent the water pressure from being controlled as this part allows for a higher rinsing pressure between the upper and lower spray arms. A diagnostic test cycle may need to be carried out by your engineer before the problem can be accurately solved.
