\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. There is no sensor on your dishwasher for drainage purpose however, it uses a drain solenoid to open and close the dishwasher drain port. If this \015\012solenoid isn't opening during the drain cycle, then it could have happened due to a bad timer or solenoid.\015\012
\015\012Also make sure that you are not using too much of detergent that causes these issues. Check for the solenoid & make sure the timer is fine. Replacing the timer alone should solve your issue.\015\012
\015\012Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance. \015\012
There may be a faulty capacitor on the timer board. They do overheat and burn out. You can find and test any electronical components on the board with an ohmmeter. If you find one with very low or no reading at all, then that is the bad one that needs to be soldered off and new one back on. You can get very reasonably parts at www.repairclinic.com and shopjimmy.com

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks

You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the m ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

My asko dishwasher ran great until recently. after finishing a load, the pump just continues to run (even when all water has been pumped from the unit and it's running dry) and the display isn't flashing anything (not codes, etc). Worried about destroying the pump, I shut off the washer at the breaker, and it's been a few months since we've had a dishwasher. Every once in a while I'll turn the power on and it just continues doing the same thing - it's stuck in this position/state, so I have to s

I have an Asko DW1875 dishwasher (10yrs old) which has just recently started having problems. The initial symptom was that during a washing cycle, unit showed '1' and inside became very hot (melting some plastic cups/plates in unit). On further investigation (with diagnostic mode), the dishwasher is filling and draining with no problem. When circulation pump runs there is barely any water pressure in blades (just dribbles out) and water leaks into undertray via a plastic white tab near front (v

Bosch SHU4302 WITH REPAIRED PC BOARD has been working fine for several years now seems stuck in rinse/drain mode and is not quite pumping cabinet dry. I have removed the screens and located the small impeller at bottom below cover. The impeller rotates as though it has multiple spring loaded stop positions. When I turn on the unit and open the door water is trickling from the sprayer arms at low pressure. It seems stuck in rinse mode and will not advance cycles or reset when shut off.

Hello,\015\012\015\012It is common for these valves to "appear" to be ok, meaning they begin to allow water into the unit, but then one of the two coils or plungers inside fail, or are clogged with mineral deposit from the water or other ... Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

When you turn it on the pump kicks on and it pumps water out of the resivior at the bottom of the washer. It sounds like thats as far as it gets.Does the pump turn on and off buy a timer or is there a float switch?

There is a float switch in the base if you tip machine to the left water will trickle out allowing you to reset machine but if it has a leak you will have the problem return until leak found. ... Bosch 23 in. SHU3307UC Built-in Dishwasher

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.

This may sound simple but... make sure its plugged in all the way. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTPS Built-in Dishwasher

Installed an older model dishwasher for a friend power works oes throuth the cycles but its not pumping water into the uniT there is no clogs and i hear the pump turn on. unsure why its not getting water into the unit another friend thinks its cause the air tube isnt hooked up but i think it may be something more then that any ideas

I have a McCulloch FHH18A power washer. When plug it in without the water turned on, the pump will start. As soon as I turn the water on to the unit, the GFCI power cord trips. Water does flow through the unit as I have water at the wand nozzle when not plugged in. Any suggestions?

I would guess there is a leak somewhere inside the unit that is spraying water on some electrical component and causing a ground fault. ... McCulloch FHH18A Electric Pressure Washer

Have checked the pump and is OK any ideas please, I am quite capable of taking the machine apart for repair. Thanks in anticipation Pete

Magic Chef DU55CA-01 unit runs but when pump kicks on for discharge cyle water leaks on the floor from the what appears to be the solenoid part. The leaking stops as soon as the pump turns off. What part needs to be replaced? The unit was in storage for some time would this just be an issue with it sitting for some time? What is the best way to determine the real cause of the leak?

Leaking from drain valve shaft seal. If you just replace the seal it may still leak. Replacing the pump is a lot of work and not really worth it to cure a small leak. ... Magic Chef 24 in. DU6550 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher starts and runs to 2nd rinse cycle, when pump starts to pump water out, all lights on front display flash along with key pab lights blinking. you can turn off and restart, but is does the same. Diswasher will also try to start when in off mode. Replaced circuit board and it does to same. Did I get a bad circuit board or is there another problem. Also when I try water service test, I get a Rinse aid fault.


My ASKO 1805 Dishwasher started to smell weird and white smoke came from it. I turned it off, but after I turned it on again it just keeps pumping water in and out, I can't get in contact with it (None of the indicator lights are working and it is not reacting to any commands) In addition the safety feauture that is supposed to stop all operation the moment the door is opened is no longer working. (i.e. even with the door open it is still pumping water) Does it sound like an expensive repair? (

Hello,\015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description ( specifically the white smoke and smell ) I would suspect the control board is faulty. \015\012\015\012If the unit does not stop when the door is open can be r ... Asko 24 in. 1805 Built-in Dishwasher

I have an Asko 1585 dishwasher. It drops the inlet valve on step (step 12), and the recirculation pump (next step) tries to pump with no water. Later at about step 47, the inlet valve begins to work again and the dishwasher finishes the cycle without a problem. I have had the board checked, and all of the power supply and transfer circuits are good. That leaves the processor. Is there any combination of buttons to press which can completely reset the controller board?

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

If all are really good then the only thing it con be is the display (8269205) $25.00 part, if it's bad dishwasher wont run ... Kenmore 16912 Built-in Dishwasher

I have an Asko w66 front load washing machine that will only wash one way with a 60 second time delay and washes the same way again instead of reversing. At no time will it wash the other way. At the first spin cycle the water is pumped out but the wash drum will not spin. The pump continues to pump and will not stop while the one way wash continues. The timer stops at this point with the one way wash and pump still pumping continuously.
