When starting my Bauknecht GSFP 5586 dishwasher the program is set for rinsing and the start light flashes two blinks, then again two blink etc. I cannot get the program to change. When I hold the Start button for 2 seconds, the progress light flashes at END for a moment then reverts back to the double blink sequence. I have checked the filter and it is well seated and clean. What can I do to start the program selection again?


Ok, so I had the exact same problem with the exact same model. NOT 7 blinks and to buttons that you do not have.\012I will tell you what I did as I do not know what (if any) of what I did fixed it (it could be luck but I do not think so).\012 ... Dishwashers

Tecnik DW2677 Hi, my dishwasher regularly starts to bleep after starting a wash program. When the door is opened it stops bleeping and the right hand light flashes 7 times repeatedly in sequence. By holding down the start and program change buttons together for a few seconds, it will reset. If you then close the door all is well for a few seconds the pump sound like it expells some water and then it starts to bleep again. The above process can happen several times before it decides to do what it

The start/pause button beeps when pressed to start a program and the machine gives a beep in response and appears to start its initial sump emptying phase but stops within 1-2 secs. Have checked pump and found no problem but start time is so short that in cannot have sensed a problem in the pumping circuit. If I persist in holding the start/pause button in, it can be released after the initial sump emptying phase (2-3 mins) and phase 1 of the wash program goes to completion. At the end of the


Hi\015\012\015\012Ronald...the beep sound itself indicates an issue with the\015\012membrane switch (control panel) and it should be replaced. I believe that the\015\012pump and motor is fine as its just beeping and doing nothing else. Ho ... Smeg 24 in. DWI612 Built-in Dishwasher

When I start my Zanussi built in Aquasave zt685 on a normal 65 degree wash it works for a five minutes or so and then stops. When I check, the display has changed to Rinse and Hold. Re-starting it on the quick wash program has the same effect but if I keep re-starting it eventually completes the cycle.
