Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can


Answers :

It has been suggested to switch the machine on/off a couple of times and the flashing light will not reappear. Until this light goes off the dishwasher will not start. All the filters should be cleaned free of any leftover food particles. What i mean is repeat the regular maintenance jobs once more. Make sure the electrical point is feeding power to the machine and also use the tester on the terminals and make sure both terminals are not live! If so then there is electrical short somewhere after that point in the dishwasher itself. Also remember to fill both salt and rinse aid dispenser is filled up before starting the machine. If all the above fail then I guess you will have to consult the manufacturers authorized service center for help, but you can try these preliminary checking and maybe you will dicover the fault while doing so.....sodeep
The BIO 50°C is the ecological cycle ‘par excellence’, specially designed to use enzyme-based detergents.
By prolonging the washing stage at 50°C (the temperature at which the enzymes are released) the same washing result is achieved as that with an intensive cycle at 65°C, ensuring energy saving and more delicate treatment of the tableware.

Can you firmly press the stop/cancel button and hold until any of the lights stops flashes? After, unplug your machine and plug it again.

Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has all lights flashing and is displaying a F2 message, which according to the good book means there is too much water in the machine. I have followed the instructions for a normal inlet time but the indicators will not change. Is it trying to tell me the Drain Pump is dead? A new drain pump was fitted three years ago. There is no eidence of water in the machine. Can anyone help? Thanks. Alan

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on?

My SHE4402UC/36 dishwasher malfunctioned all the lights were flashing and the machine was trying to drain. The guy came out and replace the control board. The dishwasher now read 199 on all cycles except the rinse and hold, the santitized light does not come when its done. The repair guy told me the count down timers were flakey on the the Bosch dishwashers and it would learn my dishwashing patterns in time. So 6 cycles later the dishes are still damp at the end of the cycle-the length of the cy

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?
