Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher lights up when Normal Wash is pushed, also heat dry - but when start is pushed all three lights (Normal wash, heat dry and washing) blink then go out and nothing happens. This occurred after a 2 hour delay was attempted last night and no washing ever happened.

What is the make and model so we can better assist you? In the mean time shut power off to the unit briefly, then turn it back on and try a normal cycle. Will be watching for a make and model here.

I have a Kenmore 665.16039401. The 3 right hand buttons on the keypad; Delay Hours, Cancel/Drain and Start/Resume do not respond and I cannot start the washer. Doing the self-diagnostic test by pressing "Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash" results in all of the LED's lighting and the washer starting a full 20 minute self-test cycle in which all functions seems to work properly. Opening and closing the door during this testing stops and then re-starts the washer appropriately

PDW9280J10SS dishwasher has been in use for about 3 years. The control panel is not working properly. I use the up/down arrows and it turns on heated dry etc. When I push the heated dry button, it changes the lights to the different cycles (which is what the arrow keys used to do). The normal wash light won't come on, the only setting that seems to wash a full cylce is antibacterial. It seems like something burned out. What should I be looking at as a possible cause/fix.

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.

After a power outage, that occured while the dishwasher was running, the lights come on and there is a high pitched noise. Then all the lights go off and the motor sounds like it is starting. However there is no water and the heating elemant comes on. The lights on the front; china/crystal, normal wash, clean and heated dry, all come on as if the computer is confused and trying to run them all simultaneously.
