Hello. Let me assist you. There are only two reasons for your problem - if you can isolate your problem based upon these descriptors you will know which part to replace:
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-heating cycle\015\012\015\012Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer\015\012\015\012Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

When dishwasher is turned on to the cycle mode - it fills with water - heater heats water to the proper temp - pump starts - washer goes through it's complete cycle - even pumping out the wash water and the drying cycle,then shuts down. the problem is that it does not circulate the wash water thru. the spray heads-even though the circ,pump is running.Even though the unit is 8 yrs.old and hasn't run for 6 yrs,my wife&i do our dishes by hand. our unit is a GU1200XTKB0 Serial# FL4617501

My Bosh Model# SHE4AM02UC/01 Is not cycling. Started with the soap dispenser not opening, progressed to the drain pump not staying on. When you turn it on, the pump runs for 2 seconds. water solenoid opens for another two seconds, and then the "clean" light comes on. If I go to quick wash, or to pot scrubber it might do a regular cycle. I did pull the pump to remove a piece of glass before this all started, but can't imagine that would be the cause.

Tank temp Our School Dist. has a Hobart dishwasher Model AM 15 T. After filling the unit it reaches a tank temp. of approx. 160 F, but when it is run through a couple cycles the temp. falls below 140 F, the min. wash temp is 150 F. The supply from the hot water tank is approx. 140 F. The rinse cycle reaches well above the 180 F min. Is there anyway to adjust the tank temp. on this model or could you suggest a solution to the problem. Thank-you John Fry

Washes for 5 seconds then stops, then starts again intermittently First the heating element started to turn on during the cycle. I never used it before. I changed the setting to unselect Hi Temp Wash but don't remember if it was selected before. The next day the dishwasher filled as usual, washing started for about 4 seconds, then stopped for aroud 10 seconds. The start/stop cycle repeated about 4 times, then all lights went off and nothing more happened.

I have a Kenmore Ultra 15895 or 15891. It fills with water then doesn't run. It will continue through it's cycles, but stays full of water. If I hit cancel before it completes the cycle, the number 2 shows in the display and nothing happens. If I let it complete the wash cycle, it will sometimes start and wash properly.

Kenmore Tumble Action Washer, Model 417,44152400 LEAK! Leaky Door got progressively worse over a month. I replaced the boot and about 10 minutes into the first test wash there was a massive leak under the soap dispenser and down the hinge side of the door during a fill cycle that seemed to be going through the dispenser. This happened again during another fill through the dispenser. No leaks during subsequent fill through the boot hose, before the spin cycle and no leaks around the door

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

CI am having a problem getting our Miele G575 dishwasher to run through a wash cycle. It definitely has power, the water is on and there is no water in the bottom of the dishwasher. When you turn the dial to start a cycle, it hums but doesn't fill with water and doesn't progress through any cycle. We have tried all positions of the dial and have had no luck? Any ideas??

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?
