Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16473300 has stopped working. Now the lights just flash at the Smart Wash, Normal Wash, and Cancel. I've reset the power and it just comes back. I've taken the drain area apart and made sure there are no obstructions. The buttons seem to respond, as after I reset the unit (breaker), only the Smartwash button is flashing. I push cancel and then it starts flashing. So I think the buttons work, but it's locked up.

IS THE WATER TURNED ON TO THE DISHWASHER ... Dishwashers

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Kenmore Elite Drawer Dishwasher model 465.13329600 Normal Wash and High Temp Wash buttons stay lit, as does green Lock button. The Start/Resume button and the red button on the front of the drawer keep flashing. I've tried key combos suggested above, but nothing seems to work. Even tried shutting it off at the circuit breaker to reset it, and that didn't work either. This ****** was purchased in 2006 or 2007, and hasn't been used very much. WTF?

GE GSD5320 seemed to finish all light wash cycles. Then it began to beep, with the NORMAL light blinking. I hit RESET, but none of the other buttons worked. I threw the circuit breaker for this appliance and waited an hour. I Turned the circuit breaker on but now I get the NORMAL light blinking, even when the door latch is not engaged. No buttons work.

The unit is a Maytag model MDB5601AWW which it has recently began to lose power at the touch pad. The electrical breaker has been checked to confirm normal voltage. Additional investigation suggests that the unit can be reset by (1) disconnecting the power at the breaker, (2) disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable that interfaces the touchpad with the control board. However, the problem reoccurs after a few normal wash cycles.


It sounds to me then that the display board or touchpad needs replacing,you havn't said that it's not doing it's cycles.so it's not causing any washing or cycle problems.i would replace the display board. ... Dishwashers

My Kenmore Dishwasher won't turn on. Was working fine last week, but when I went to start it yesterday, nothing starts or lights up when I push the button.

My Bosch SHE45M built-in dishwasher is suddenly taking an extra-long time to go through its cycles. On Regular wash it will countdown from 117 minutes to 31 minutes. When it hits that time it resets to 87 minutes, then counts down to 1 minute and will not stop. I have to hit the cancel-reset buttons for it to drain. I have tried to do a hard reset by cutting the power at the breaker for 20 minutes or more. I'm interested in potential parts and a description of how to fit it! Thanks in advance.

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

Model IGV 659.1 Dishwasher When switched on the 'time display' takes longer than 2 minutes to display the planned wash duration. The display works fine to set a delayed start. After cycling the start delay round to 0, or after RESET (buttons A and C pressed) the unit is then 'nudged' into displaying a time. After, at last, a time is displayed the unit works fine.

Hi, ^The GE dishwasher (PDW788000SS) will not fill in either "rinse only" or "normal wash" modes. The control panel lights up with all functions. After selecting rinse only or normal wash and pressing/holding the start/reset button down for several seconds to reset the unit the drain pump comes on for approx 90 seconds as advertised. Checked the float switch and there is no continuity in any position of the little switch arm and the switch arm has no spring on it. Seems like this is a faile

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

I have a Kenmore undercounter dishwasher..model 665.16022400. The "normal wash" light keeps blinking..nothing will work on it..I tried reseting didn't work, killed the breaker for a while, didn't work. I tool the panel off and reseated the ribbon connection to the electronic board..didn't work. I'm not sure if I should be replacing the electronic board, or the control panel that contains the buttons. None of the buttons appear to be stuck. thanks - Andrew

My brandt VF300 doesn't drain at the end of wash cycles. If you run the soak programme it drains fine. Some time ago the door was adjusted by an engineer, when he arrived he pressed some buttons which then drained the unit immediately, I have forgotten which buttons! Is there anything I can do to reset the thing, given it drains on soak I am doubtful the drain pump has broken ir is blocked?

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Is there
