Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have just purchased a second-hand Sercon Quickwash benchtop dishwasher. Is it possible to get operating instructions for this? The type No. is CB 2405050-6 and serial No. is 8350144.

Answers :

Congratulations, you've just purchased one of the most indestructible dishwashers ever made. I ought to know, as mine is 35 years old, used at least twice daily and still going strong after only the addition of a door switch pushrod seal, a heater element and a water level switch in that time, although now on its third plastic door. They were often used commercially in labs for cleaning test tubes, etc. as the components were able to take the chemicals and punishment. Alas the plastic doors eventually crack around the hinges and need replacing but are no longer available so treat yours tenderly because if it cracks and can't hold water your dishwasher will be a boat anchor. You don't need an instruction manual, although I have one. Just use Finish dishwashing powder(no I don't own shares) and no rinse aid (the rinse aid dispenser is at the back and a pain to fill anyway and not necessary because you're using Finish remember?). Click on the water/waste pipe connector to the sink tap fitting, turn on the cold water, fill with dishes, sprinkle a capful of Finish powder over them, close the door and turn the timer clockwise ONLY to the Start position (about 1 o'clock) and wait about 20 mins til its finished (timer at about 11 o'clock) Then open the door to let out steam and aid final drying. All this with the toggle switch on 'normal' (and power plugged in and on of course dummy), although you can use 'economy' position for a few dishes or drink glasses, remembering that dishwashers will eventually turn glassware milky with that blasting action (ie not mum's best crystal) The Sercon Quickwash is a mighty mouse but noisy as it's not insulated around the single skin stainless steel cabinet and if the usual suspects aren't careful with bones, pips, stones, etc the waste pipe can become blocked, usually at the fitting near the tap and the cycle may stop with water still in the dishwasher. If it does, undo the hose and check for any obstructions, clear and restart. Farewell dishmop until the fateful day that plastic door cracks.
I too have a bench top sercon dishwasher with no instuctions thanks for the info but would be better if you could perhaps scan the instuctions for all to share

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.
