Repair of dishwashers Kaiser

Repair of dishwashers KaiserKaiser is a well-known German brand, under which the best equipment is produced. In particular, Kaiser dishwashers are considered the most reliable in the world, and the ergonomic design continues to amaze users around the world. Repair of such machines is rarely required, so in Russia there are few masters who would often encounter their breakdowns. Nevertheless, the malfunctions did not bypass even such reliable equipment, and we did not bypass the topic related to the repair of “Kaisers”.

What often breaks in Kaiser dishwashers?

If you believe the statistics provided by service centers in Europe and Russia, the main breakdowns of the Kaiser dishwashers are associated with improper operation and connection, or with a poor electrical network. Of the 1000 recorded situations when the Kaiser dishwasher needed repair, in 897 cases the cause of the breakdown was user mistakes made during operation, in 89 cases the fault was caused by a poor-quality power supply network and only 14 cases involved factory defects or poor assembly.

Note! The above are statistics on calls to service centers for breakdowns of Kaiser dishwashers in the first year of operation. In total, in 2014-2015, 1368 cases of user requests from European countries and the Russian Federation were recorded when repairs were really needed.

What are the most common causes of failure of Kaiser dishwashers?

  • Clogged drain system.
  • Clogging in the filler system.
  • Problems with electrics and electronics due to poor electrical conditions.

Clogged drain system

Repair of dishwashers KaiserThere is a category of users of dishwashers who believe that if you paid money for good equipment, then you can use it to the maximum, without bothering to take care of it. It usually ends badly - the dishwasher stops working. In some cases, users, trying to independently deal with the problem, clean the filters, rinse the drain hoses, but the problem still remains.

Experts say that if you do not clean the dishwasher, then it may need repairs, because blockages provoke the breakdown of the pump or heating element, and this is serious. If clogging occurs, you cannot continue to use the Kaiser dishwasher, you must immediately stop the washing process, and then perform a full cleaning, either manually or using special tools.

Jamming system clogging

In most of the big and small cities of our vast country, the quality of tap water leaves much to be desired and the point is not even “hard water”. Often, impurities appear in the water that can harm not only human health, but also equipment, so the user's primary task is to take care of protecting an expensive Kaiser dishwasher; otherwise, repairs will be needed. What will happen if this is not done?

Important! In order not to later repair the Kaiser dishwashers, it is necessary to install at least one additional flow filter on the inlet hose, which must be cleaned regularly.

If you do not install any additional filters, then between the water supply and the bowels of the dishwasher there is only one barrier - a standard flow filter, which is installed by the manufacturer at the inlet directly in front of the filling valve. The mesh on this filter is very thin, and if you do not resort to any additional measures for water treatment, then it will quickly clog and clogging will occur. The machine will not be able to pump water, it will freeze and need repair. What should be done?

  1. It is necessary to block the flow of water into the machine.
  2. Disconnect the inlet hose from the dishwasher.
  3. Next, unscrew the flow filter from the machine body and carefully clean it.
  4. Next, you can clean the hose itself, after which we put everything in place and check the operation of the machine.

Experts strongly do not recommend starting this malfunction. If you see the dishwasher picking up water very slowly, start repairs immediately. The fact is that with insufficient water in the dishwasher tank, the load on the flowing heating element increases, which in turn leads to its rapid breakdown. Simply put, look at the filter - you will change the ten, take this as seriously as possible.

Problems with electrical and electronics

Voltage regulatorThe essence of the malfunction, in this case, is not even in the electrics or electronics of the Kaiser dishwashers, the problem is in the electrical communications, which invariably damage the “delicate” European technology. As a result of the usual sharp increase or decrease in voltage, Kaiser dishwashers fail to control modules, power filters, in rare cases even wires and contacts burn, other malfunctions occur.

If you notice a voltage drop, and after that the dishwasher stops working, do not go into it yourself - invite an experienced wizard to diagnose the malfunction. To avoid such problems in the future, it is necessary to connect all the expensive and complex equipment in the house through stabilizers. Stabilizer - the device is not cheap, but imagine if it immediately saves from the voltage drop:

  • a dishwasher;
  • fridge;
  • washing machine.

All costs will immediately pay off and you will no longer puzzle over the question of whether or not to buy such a remedy. Malfunctions of this kind of car will not be threatened. In addition to the stabilizer, you need to take care to connect the Kaiser dishwasher to a good moisture-proof outlet with a reliable copper supply wire with a cross section of 1.5-2 mm. You need to connect the line through a difavtomat, so it is more reliable.

Summing up, we note that if your Kaiser dishwasher broke down during the first year of operation and needs repair, most likely the cause of the malfunction was either incorrect user actions or poor communications. Reliable Kaiser machines themselves break extremely rarely. Be careful, better care for your dishwasher, and it will not take a long time to repair.

    The KAISER S45170XL dishwasher does not draw enough water to turn on the heating element. The water supply filter is clean.

    • Gravatar Vladimir Vladimir:

      I thought the sensor did not give a command.

    They wrote some crap. Kaiser disassembled the PMM, there instead of the delicate European electronics there is a no less delicate Chinese motherboard with the inscription CMedea.

    Kaiser - the best technology ... I've been suffering with a dishwasher for 5 years! Almost every dishwashing is accompanied by some kind of glitches, expressed in the sound signal and repeated attempts to proceed to the next stage of washing - a set of water, rinse, drain, set, wash, etc. It's just tin! I'm not saying that the hose connections are oozing, the door holding mechanism has broken, the drawer rollers have been corroded ... It's just a disaster 🙁
