  1. A LEAK IS DETECTED IN THE DISHWASHER

Since the dishwasher works using water, you can often encounter the problem of water leakage. In this case, the machine may not turn on at all, giving an error code on the display. Please note that the error code is different for each manufacturer.

As a rule, if the machine leaks, it stops the washing process and turns off. Although in some cases it is possible to restart it. How to explain this?

In each dishwasher there is a special float, it is it that protects against leaks. When water is collected below, a signal is given about an emergency water leak and the machine is turned off.
