I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up. Also I have left it for a number of hours after I have tried to start it and still nothing happens. I would appreciat

I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model 363.14478791). I hadn't used the dishwasher in a month. I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial to the right to off. As I moved the dial to the right, there were lots of clicks and clunks. I started over and turned the dial to the start position. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. Then water star

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???


Hi \015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. As the water is not draining and clicking is\015\012coming from the bottom so the issue seems to be with the drain pump solenoid. Usually, these issues are related\015\012to ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Kenmore Dishwasher won't turn on. Was working fine last week, but when I went to start it yesterday, nothing starts or lights up when I push the button.

I have a KitchenAid KUD1021RWHO dishwasher that will not turn on when I hit the start button. The LED lights work when I press cycle selection ie. "normal" but when I press the start button nothing happens. I have waited for a couple of hours and then it will start. However during the last week it has happened more frequently and now it has not worked for the last (2) days. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Thank you for your help!!!


Hello,\015\012\015\012This is a very common issue on these units. The touch pad has failed. You can try to flip the breaker off for several minutes and see if that clears the code. More than likely the touch pad will need to be replaced.\015\01 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI02IR Built-in Dishwasher

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

It will not start! I have unplugged and replugged in and will not start. I went to the circuit breaker and turned it off and on and it will not start. If I push normal wash the lights will go on but nothing will happen and then the lights go off in a few minutes and it will not start.

I wanted to heat up a cup of tea. As I've done many times before, I pressed Time, then 1:20 seconds, then I pressed Auto Start, but fear I may have touched the button below it, which says Start in small red print. The oven wouldn't switch on, and I noticed a small green u-shaped mark had appeared at the base of the 1: I pressed Clear, and repeated my movements, making sure this time that I pressed Auto Start. Again, nothing happened. I've cleared the touchpad several times, but the oven won't
