Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a whirlpool DWH B10W. Last week the main drain outside blocked and none of my service machines were working (not draining). The main drain has now been unblocked and every machine except the dishwasher are now working fine. The plumber has checked the drainpipes again and says all are now clear. When I try to use the dishwasher, after the initial drain it stops and starts beeping at me. I have also noticed that no water is going into the machine. What's happening?


Answers :

The error most likely indicates a Long Drain Sequence (Drain Exceeds 8 Minutes) - Select 'cancel' twice to clear error code.

\015\0121. Switch off the machine, unplug the machine from the mains power and turn off the water supply to the machine.
\015\0122. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
\015\0123. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
\015\0124. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
\015\0125. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
\015\012If the problem persists then do the following.
\015\0126. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
\015\0127. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
\015\0128. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
\015\0129. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
\015\01210. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
\015\01211. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

4 flashes means no drop in water level detected in the time allowed. Three things could be happening.

1/ If there is water standing in the machine, you have a blockage or a drain pump failure. If it's coupled to a sink spigot, check that as well.

2/ The Water Indicator is full of fat and is jamming in the full position. Remove lower basket and all filters, look into the sump at the 3 o'clock position and you should see a black grid. Behind it is a rubber diaphragm and a light-action microswitch. It fills with fatty deposits. You can try using very hot water and a toothbrush to scrub the thing clear - it often works; you may have to remove it for full access. It's a twist fit from underneath.

3/ The microswitch itself may have lost its "spring".
\015\012this part is located at the back of your dishwasher in the water intake. it looks like this

\015\012it may have become clogged when the drain blocked. it is possible to remove the part clean it and reinstall it. test the microswitch first to make sure it clicks

We have a Whirlpool GU980 Series Dishwasher. All the lights work. No matter what setting I use, it fills up, and then nothing happens. The "washing" light will be turned on, but nothing happens. I try to drain the machine, it will make a sound like it's going to begin a process, then it just stops. Do these things just "die" after some time? This machine is 7 years old.

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do.

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a

The programme works fine but when I go to use it again - check water shows on the display. I have to tilt the machine back as water is stored at the base of the machine, surely this is not normal? It there a simple solution to this or alot of cost involved with a new part? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!
