A Maidaid Halcyon dishwasher is designed to deal with high volumes of tableware within the catering industry. They’re heavy-duty, high-powered, and come with LED displays giving instant status updates and operational self-diagnosis. This results in you knowing when your appliance is malfunctioning even if you can’t fix the issue yourself.
If you’ve got an operational issue with your Maidaid dishwasher take a look at some Maidaid dishwasher problems and troubleshooting here…
Maidaid dishwasher troubleshooting
Dishwasher won’t start
This common problem is typically caused by an electrical issue. There may be a problem with the incoming power supply, a faulty power switch or socket, or a fuse that’s blown causing the circuit breaker to trip. Any electrical fault should be diagnosed and resolved by a qualified engineer.
Other components that can be the culprit here are the dishwasher door latch which may not let the door close securely and prevent starting or a stuck motor.
The many reasons for this issue include the dishwasher door not sealing properly. This could be due to something being trapped in the gasket, or the gasket itself being worn or damaged. The mechanism that indicates the water level in your dishwasher may be stuck in the down position. This is known as the float switch and when defective can cause your dishwasher to overfill and leak.
Dishwasher not draining
When your dishwasher won’t drain it may have experienced a power outage resulting in the appliance not being able to complete the drainage cycle. Dishwasher drainage can also be affected by a build-up of food sediment in the waste disposal pipe if shared with the dishwasher.
If you have a new disposal system the drain plug will need to be removed and the drain hose installed and connected properly. Any obstructions or kinks in the drain hose will also cause drainage issues.
Dishwasher not drying
If the heating element is defective in your dishwasher this will cause a problem with drying. A malfunctioning high-limit thermostat that causes the heat to shut off too soon will also leave partially wet dishes. Bear in mind that if the rinse dispenser isn’t dispensing property this can also affect the drying ability of your dishwasher.
Maidaid dishwasher error codes
When your dishwasher detects a malfunction it’ll signal a series of error codes to help you identify where the problem may lie. Self-diagnosis codes include:
Maidaid dishwasher error 02
This error code is showing that the water drainage is abnormal. It could be due to problems with the overflow, an obstructed drain hose, or a blocked filter.
Maidaid dishwasher error 09
This means that the boiler hasn’t filled properly and the boiler loading time has expired, making it impossible to carry out the rinse cycle. The water inlet valve and tap will need to be investigated before a new complete cycle can be performed. A trained technician will need to carry out repairs to the boiler if normal service can’t be resumed.
Maidaid dishwasher error 21
When the display shows this code it’s often related to the boiler-rinse timeout meaning that there’s an issue with the rinse pump itself, the rinse nozzles, or the switch system within the boiler itself.
