Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Takes a while to prime then washes a for about 3 minutes then it seems to be priming the rest of the cicyle

\015 My Dishwasher seems to be always priming what would cause that?\015

Answers :

A low water level would cause your condition. Most dishwashers have a full water level at or just below the heating element. Manually fill to that point using the sink spray hose or a container of some sort. If the pulsating sound smoothes out, then you should replace the water inlet valve. Verify the shut off valve for the dishwasher under the sink is fully open. ****If you attempt this repair, be sure to remove power from the dishwasher and shut off the water supply. If the water level was already at the heating element, then consider a blocked pump filter or bad wash impeller.

Hi - I have a Neff S5456X2GB/13 and it has decided to wash cold and doesn't dry. When washing in auto mode it seems to take forever but does eventually stop, and I've noticed that when opened the time to go indicator can vary quite a lot (sometime goes backwards in that if you wait ten minutes and look again, it's saying it's going to take longer than it did before) I have replaced the pump in the past so I know how to dismantle the machine. What are the possible causes of this problem and ho


Ok, really you have maybe three problems, that to me seem interconnected.\015\012\015\012First, IF connected up to the Hot water source, then either that has failed or the Inlet Solenoid has.\015\012\015\012Second, the heating element has ... Neff Dishwashers

We have a Kenmore 665,16532 ultra wash dishwasher. When it goes through a wash cycle, it takes a total of 3 hours. It sits at 62 minutes for about 30 minutes, and then at 42 minutes for about 20 minutes. What does that mean?

Have a 665-16293201 dishwasher with electronic controls and smart sensor. Approx 10 years old in great shape. it just started having a problem - it takes a long time for the sensing to be completed at the start of a wash and then the washer will start and display a time - like 92 minutes - turn the sensing light off, then start to wash and count down. when it gets to 86 minutes, it starts to sense again and will continue washing while displaying 86 and with the sensing light on. It will keep

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Hi there, we have had our Bosch Loggixx Auto Option dishwasher for about 5 years now and we seem to have had endless issues with it.

Dishwasher cycle starts briefly for a couple of minutes and then stops again and the standard wash and eco wash programme lights are then flashing together? It appears that water is drawn into the appliance for a short time and it then seems to start and empty itself before the above lights start to flash, all within 3-4 minutes?

Model she44c02uc; 2 years old. no matter which cycle we pick, it just keeps on running..it gets down to about 15 minutes on the countdown timer, and then resets itself to 80 minutes or so and washes over again...if we manually turn it off and then push quick wash, it seems to finish, but doesn't dry the dishes.......we have tried all suggestions in the manual and cleaned both filters; the line is not clogged...the sink and disposal both work fine. thanks

My Bosch SHE45M built-in dishwasher is suddenly taking an extra-long time to go through its cycles. On Regular wash it will countdown from 117 minutes to 31 minutes. When it hits that time it resets to 87 minutes, then counts down to 1 minute and will not stop. I have to hit the cancel-reset buttons for it to drain. I have tried to do a hard reset by cutting the power at the breaker for 20 minutes or more. I'm interested in potential parts and a description of how to fit it! Thanks in advance.

The cycle doesn't seem to stop correctly. I start a load. It doesn't seem to matter which mode that I start in, but it will count-down the time, but at the end it hasn't stopped running. I've cleaned out the filter and the trap below. I've ran vinegar through a cycle. I've cleaned all of the spray arms. It doesn't seem to advance out of the wash mode. There is still some suds at the end. I have to end the cycle by canceling and draining it manually, then run a couple of "rinse--9 minute" cycles


Hello,\015\012\015\012Based on your description I'd say the issue is with the control. That is what I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. \015\012\015\012The issue is within t ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch she44c wash cycle time keeps extending. Once averaged about 130 minutes, now starts at about 150 minutes indicated. Seems to hang up at 1 or 2 minutes before cycle end, then keep running for as much as 4 hours. Water is hot, filters are clean.

Dishwasher makes grinding noise during wash cycle (after pre-wash). noise persists for 15-20 minutes. It seems as though the inlet valve doesn't open during this phase of the cycle. adding water to the dishwasher manually eliminates the noise and water circulates through the wash arms. I'm trying to determine if this is a controller issue or a valve/pump issue.

I have a Kenmore 665.16039401. The 3 right hand buttons on the keypad; Delay Hours, Cancel/Drain and Start/Resume do not respond and I cannot start the washer. Doing the self-diagnostic test by pressing "Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash" results in all of the LED's lighting and the washer starting a full 20 minute self-test cycle in which all functions seems to work properly. Opening and closing the door during this testing stops and then re-starts the washer appropriately

Control Module? I have a GE Profile that seems to have a control module issue. I've changed the module and it continues to do the same thing...won't drain at end of cycle and begins washing right away after selecting new cycle. Washes for only about 5 minutes total and then just heats the water...soap dispenser doesn't get rinsed clean either. Any ideas?

The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

My Kitchenaid ModelKUDI01TJBL0 only leaks at initial start up. Just after the water fills, the first few seconds of the wash cycle. It pours out the front door for a couple seconds than no more for the rest of the wash. It is level, no cracked arms, or loose pumps.Splash guard is in place. The float seems to be working, not too much water in the bottom. I am stumped. Although I do feel that it has something to do with the level of the water being too high, when the arm starts turning, it makes a

My dishwasher is 6 years old it started making clicking and knocking sounds about a week ago. The display is blinking crazy at about 37 minutes left in washing cylce it blinks 37, HO, and CL. It blinks other numbers also. The water still seems to be flowing in and out fine. It's heating up and draining when canceled. I'm running it on normal wash and high temp. cycle. It sounds like the sensing parts in the door are going off and on.

Hi, I bought an ADP9000IX dishwasher but I don't seem to see the operating manual. When I pressed "Start" noticed that the washing time that is displayed is 2:35. Does it mean 2 hours 35 minutes? How can I change the washing duration? Where can I download the operating manual from? Thanks.


... Whirlpool Dishwashers

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.
