Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The machine stops before the program has finished, with the start button flashing. Holding down the button restarts the motor but it stops after 5-6 mins with the same flashing button. Therefore I can never get to the end of the program.


Answers :

Check levels of Salt and Rinse Aid. Make sure there is no "hold" button depressed.
\015\012From the sound of it, this is a fault indicator that something major is wrong. Is it heating correctly ?. Does it pump out ok ?
\015\012I suspect either the heater or pump is faulty and needs checking.

The start button flashing continuously and the filter area seems to be full of water but when I take it out it is perfectly clean. I have switched the machine on and off several times but each time the start button indicates a fault. I have tried holding down the on button so as to stop the start button flashing so that I could select a program - this did work once and I selected my program but 10 mins in it stopped and started beeping... I have a ADG7460 machine - HELP! I'm going crazy!

Hi, I have a zanussi DE6744S. I can select any program and water fills as normal. The problem is that the cycle runs and runs and dosn't stop unless I turn the machine off. When I restart the machine it just carries on until I press the current program button in for a about 10 seconds and the program stops. On the odd occasion it ends normally on the economy cycle (30 mins) but its pot luck. It does wash as normal but dosn't seem to get past constant washing (no drying) . Hope you can help, S

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

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?

My Dishlex global 300's rinse light is flashing after 5 mins use. About 2 inches of water stays at the bottom of the washer. Bought this second hand and it has not been used for a few months. Do I need to fill the reservoir under the washer or lean it at 45 degrees to dislodge anything in the sump. If you have had the problem of the washer starting its program and then stopping after 5 minutes and the rinse light flashing I would appreciate your advice. Cheers Hyph
