Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher would not work and clean light would blink seven times. Asked an expert and they said to hit saniwash and heated dry two times. This work for a couple of times but now the dishwasher acts like there is no electrical power goimg to it. I tested the power with a voltmeter and there is power going to the circuit board.


Answers :

Normally this happens when the dishwasher electronic control does not detect a water temperature increase during the main wash cycle. The issue could be in the heater element, the thermostat or the wiring that is connected to those or on the electronic control.



Another issue that you could look at is the washer not spraying properly. This may be cause by blockage in the filter or the pump. The dishwasher may not be filling or draining prematurely. Check also the door latching mechanism's switches. Check also the wiring for these.


\015\012\015\012Once corrected put the unit into diagnostic mode by pressing the key sequence Heated Dry, Normal, Heated Dry, Normal and\015\012then cancel
Sometimes they stick it on the side of the dishwasher, just look.
\015\012 Your dishwasher sensed a low water temperature, just raise your water temperature, it should be at least 120 degrees.
\015\012Open the dishwasher door and within 3 seconds,hit High temp scrub, then\015\012energy saver, then repeat, or do this to similar buttons. Close and\015\012latch door and press cancel, this should re-set computer.
\015\012Lots of times there is really nothing wrong with the dishwasher and I\015\012never found a bad heating element/thermostat on all the ones I looked\015\012at.

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

Last night when the dishwasher reached 6 in the cycle (plate warming) there was a loud pop that caused as to loose all electricity in our home. When the electrician took the dishwasher out of the powerpoint the electricity came back on. The power point still works so the electrician has said that the dishwasher has blown. Does this sound like something that could be fixed? And if so who would I contact to do this? Thanks

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.


First retrieve the tech spec sheet behind the toe-kick panel located near the floor and run the diagnostics if it will let you do so w/o the full operation of the keys on the pad,then if it wont the touchpad or keyboard on the front that you use to s ...

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine.

No Matter, Two days ago, my garbage disposal stopped working. I checked the outlet. It had power. The switch to the Disposal was next to the outlet. I assumed that the switch was wired from the outlet. It wasn't. Bottom line, the switch nut was loose. I tightened it and problem solved. When I turned on the dishwasher, nothing happened.

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
