I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start.

My Baumatic BWD 1631 will not start unless I close the door, hold down the programme button, press the on/off button, release the programme button, at which point all 5 programme indicators light up. If I then press the programme button again, the lights then all intermittantly cycle. However during this period, the bleeper sounds, the water inlet valve works, the circulating pump works and finally the discharge pump works and the machine empties. However I am unable to stop or start the machine

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change. We have switched the power off at the powerpoint and on again a few times but this has not rectified the problem. It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light
