My Thermador dishwasher DWHD64EP/54 does not get the dishes clean. We checked all the usual things--water to the dishwasher is hot, filters clean, spray arms working and not clogged, detergent cups working, proper amts of detergent etc. We find that no steam is produced during the cycles, we find that the when choosing a cycle and power boost incorrect cycle times are now displayed compared to previous usage when the dishwasher ran normal. Some of the longer cycles now show only 24 min

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

Dear sir In an attempt to dislodge a blockage of my sewer line using Draino and a plunger some of the Drano ended up in the dishwasher and now the dishwasher will not run. My dishwasher is a SHU3036UC/U12. When starting the unit up it empties the unit but the cycle newer ends, in other words the timer does not advance to the next cycle, I have determined that the timer motor works by removing it from the unit and supplying it with power. One thought is, can the water level switch be stuck in

I have a hotpoint LFT04 dishwasher. Recently it tripped the power supply, and now when we start a cycle after a few minutes it stops and the lights on the power button and cycles 2 and 4 flash constantly.

Hello, my Siemens integrated dishwasher no: SE64M359GB stopped working mid-cycle with 35mins remaining. It is displaying the red tap emblem. Usually the dishwasher starts when the dishwasher door is closed fully (having pressed the power button). However, it is making a noise as soon as the power button is pressed. I have checked the water supply and pipes and they are OK. The filters are also clean and OK. We have an electric de-scaler on our system so I imagine calcium build up should n

I have Jenn-Air dishwasher that I use the heated dry cycle for. Last night at 11:00 pm or so I ran the unit. Today at 10:00am when I opened the door steam barrelled out and everything was so hot to the touch I gave myself a significant burn when grabbing a non-metal item in the dishwasher. Should I be concerned there is a problem with the entire unit or just the heated dry cycle? Should I be concerned about fire danger due to a short?

Quick Rinse light was flashing at end of cycle. Opened and closed door and pushed Start. Quick Rinse and Cancel/Drain light are now flashing and machine won't start.

I have a Fisher & Paykel 913T soft touch dishwasher. On all types of washes when the wash cycle starts there is no 230 volts on the element & after 5 minutes the wash cycle finishes & then goes onto to the next cycle. None of the wash or rinse cycles heat the water but on the dry cycle their is 230 volts onto the element & dries the dishes OK. Is my problem the power supply PCB or could it be the Controller PCB? Does the 230 volts to the element on dry cycle come from the same cicuit on the po

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHX46A05UC/30 has been working fine. I ran it once today on the Power Scrub Plus cycle (always use this one). Shortly after unloading the dishwasher I needed to run it again with more dishes. Within a few minutes of running the dishwasher I heard loud, almost grinding noises. Nothing appears to be stuck. Any ideas on what to do? This dishwasher has always been quiet up until today.

Dishwasher issues hotpoint dishwasher model HDA1200 used for a year and put into storage for a year. reinstalled this weekend. dishwasher was fussy about the door latch for a minute...door latch did not want to engage all the way...but went into its cycle. we stopped it and added a few dishes for a test run it started right up and ran about 8 minutes and shut itself down. it will not restart. the power supply is ok. no leakage about the door once latch engaged. what can we do?


It can be the 10A fuse located in the back of the machine. but.... storage is kind of a problem with determining what is wrong with it.\015\012Mouse can have chewed the wires, moisture can have rusted or corroded some components.\015\012C ... Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle. Is there any way to check the solenoids which are attached to the door handle before I order a new door latch.


I have the same problem with mine. It is 3 1/2 years old. The repair man was just here and said it is the control panel. It will cost $171.85 for the part and then $53.85 today for his visit and then a return visit when the part is in.\015\0 ... Maytag Dishwashers

My old Neff dishwasher S4132 is constantly taking in water even when switched off! I can drain it ( every hour!) by putting it to drain cycle but have to turn off the mains supply when leaving it even for a short time. Awaiting a plumber as the tap to isolate the supply has broken but am interested to know if a new aqua stop will solve this problem or could it be something else??

Tank temp Our School Dist. has a Hobart dishwasher Model AM 15 T. After filling the unit it reaches a tank temp. of approx. 160 F, but when it is run through a couple cycles the temp. falls below 140 F, the min. wash temp is 150 F. The supply from the hot water tank is approx. 140 F. The rinse cycle reaches well above the 180 F min. Is there anyway to adjust the tank temp. on this model or could you suggest a solution to the problem. Thank-you John Fry

I have an Asko 1585 dishwasher. It drops the inlet valve on step (step 12), and the recirculation pump (next step) tries to pump with no water. Later at about step 47, the inlet valve begins to work again and the dishwasher finishes the cycle without a problem. I have had the board checked, and all of the power supply and transfer circuits are good. That leaves the processor. Is there any combination of buttons to press which can completely reset the controller board?

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash. I assume this is some kind of troubleshooting code but the manual does not cover this and I am in Honduras so service is non existent. Any ideas? By the way, I was a builder in the States for 25 y
