When I depress the start button, the timer is clicking to engage and begin the cycle, however, the dishwasher does not start. Other times, there is no noise whatsover when I press the start button and neither does the dishwasher start. If I don't use it for say 2-3 weeks and try again, it starts working for a period of a few months, but then the same thing happens again down the track. This has occurred about 4 times.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher (model 363.14478791). I hadn't used the dishwasher in a month. I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial to the right to off. As I moved the dial to the right, there were lots of clicks and clunks. I started over and turned the dial to the start position. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. Then water star

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

We have a Kenwood KDW8ST2A Dishwasher which is about a month old. The other day we had to pull it out from under the worktop because something rolled under it. When we put it back and went to use it later that day, we got an E1 error code appear and it's been like that since. We pulled it back out to make sure that we hadn't accidently pulled or loosened any of the pipes. We have the manual which does tell us what the error means but it doesn't tell us how to fix it. I'm sure it must be somethin

F&P DD603i Greetings! My mother-in-law went to use her 18-month old Fisher&Paykel DD603 bottom drawer today (Thanksgiving) but it started beeping and showed an error with the motor. From the messages here, it looks like you may have a service manual for this unit? If you do, would you be kind enough to forward it to me also? My mom-in-law would greatly appreciate it, and I could probably get an extra slice of pumpkin pie!! Thanks, Craig [email protected]

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 E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch SHU5316UC dishwasher.

It used to would finish a load even though it would stop for a while when the error message came up, but now it will not run at all when the error message comes up.

My dishwasher will not start. If you unplug it and plug it back in it says 1H, no matter what button you press it then says 2H and if you press another button it will say 3H until it runs through to 9H then will display --.

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher

My bosch dishwasher's top rack has started not cleaning the top rack properly. I get brown crud on the dishes and have to hand rinse everything after the cycle. This has just started about 6 months ago. I wipe off the inside of the dishwasher but does not help. I use cascade and also the rinse agent recommended The lower rack is fine.

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.


As it is nearly 10 years old i would suggest you replacing the circuit board. To test exactly we would need the help of an continuity tester and multimeter. ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

A feew weeks ago Smeg STA6047 dishwasher stopped in the beginning of the programme after approx. ten minutes, and gave the error code E9. There had been clearly water in the machine, but maybe not enough and the detergent box was not open. However, when technician came by two weeks after, the dishwasher worked and he said it was in order. But only after being used only once, the same problem reappeared. First the washer gave the error code E8, on the second try E9. And now it does not start at a

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can

Karcher 2400R I have not used my pressure washer for 6 months. It was left full of gas in the garage. I tried to start it but it would not fire up so I change the gas, oil, and spark plug, took apart the carburator and cleaned it out with carb cleaner. I went ahead and put everything together, pull the cord and wanted to start. While trying to start it after I sprayed starting fluid in the air cleaner I noticed that gas was coming back from the crankcase breather hose into the air filter choking
