Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Start dishwasher then it just stops after a few seconds


Answers :

It might be that your unit has a water cut out float on the bottom if your unit leaks the tray at the bottom fil with water and a small float switch lifts up and cuts the unit out so if you try to start it again it just shuts down,it may also be the fill valve or water feed if the is not getting water it will shut down,look at the first fault if you can get the bottom front cover off first and see if you can see or feel water inside the base of your unit do switch off and unplug the unit first safety first good luck

My Bosch Dishwasher does not drain all the water out of the dish washer after the finishing cycle...I usually start the washer and then push the drain cycle and it starts to pump for about 10 seconds and stops and starts and pumps again for 10 seconds and stops and then pumps for about 25 seconds and stops....doing this manual drain twice empties the dishwasher of the excess water....what may the problem be?

Hello, I have a CONSTRUCTA S9W1C dishwasher with aquastop. Unfortunately, I tried once to start it with the house water supply closed. Of course it stopped after a few seconds. After that time, when I start it, the water pumps works and after some seconds the cycle stops. It gets no water. I've checked and noticed that no water passes through the aquastop valve. The aqua stop has two wires that get into the dishwasher. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time Alex

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 Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

Hello, my Bosch Classixx dishwasher SGS43E42EU/21 has me stumped. It starts by taking in water but when "filled" pumps out for a couple of seconds then refills for say 10 seconds more before another 2 or 3 seconds of pumping out. This cycle continues for ages without starting to wash. I've tried various things: - checked the Auto Stop valve isn't being activated by leakage (removing the polystyrene float and bottom tray makes no difference - there's no leak) - the valve seems to operate it
