Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Starts then stops, continues, then eventually

\015 Siemans, starts then stops, continues, then eventually recycles forever when the timer says 1 min. Only way to finish is to change to rinse. Tried re-set but don't know if I've done it right. Unit is from last residents, don't know model because built in and no manual. small and designed to hide in **** kitchen units.\015

Answers :

Is it actually heating the water ?
\015\012If the heater has blown - it will be waiting to get up to temperature. No heat - it keeps waiting.
\015\012
\015\012If it does get hot, it will be either the temp switch (it doesn't know it's hot) - or the timer module at fault.

Hobart lx18h Our commercial Hobart dishwaser stops working after running a few cycles. After pressing start the LED display will continually blink and nothing will happen. We'll turn it off and on again a few times to reset it and it will start up again eventually. We've had an appliance guy look at it multiple times. He's replaced a part or two for it but the problem continues and he isn't much help. Anyone else had any similar issues with this model of dishwasher?

Hi . I have a Zanussi DE6965 which has started displaying the error message AL6 every now and then. When it stops and shows this the water has not pumped out. If you turn it off, leave for half an hour or so and turn back on it sometimes works fine to the end. Sometimes it stops again. Eventually after several stop starts it works through. Any advice what could be causing this? Thanks.

I have an asko D3450 dishwasher. Washer makes buzzing/humming noise at start of cycle and then randomly through cycle. I checked the sump and pump appears to be clean and impeller spins freely. The cycle seems to work ok. Water is pumping out ok. If you open the door to stop the cycle, the buzzing will continue for a few minutes then stop. If the cycle is restart, the buzzing starts again. The vibrations seem to originate from under the lower spin arm.

My Dishwasher starts, then stops after 30secs and won't continue draining. Everytime I turn it back on it comes up on the steam cycle and won't go to any other cycle, drains for 30secs and stops again. Power light is flashing. Have tried holding power button down for 10secs with no effect. Filter is clean, pipes are straight-no kinks. How do I get it to start working again? It is a whirlpool dishwasher, ADP5550.

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light

Our dishwasher (a Maytag - MDBH970AW) will not proceed past the intital intake of water. It has done this occasionally in the past, but with repeated attempts to start a wash cycle, it would eventually work and continue to work for some time afterward. However, in the past week, it will not go through a wash cycle. I have ran the water, prior to starting, to ensure that it is intaking very hot water. When it quits, I can push the start button again and it will go through the 2 minute drain c
