Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy. Thanks in advance

\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When\015\012the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and\015\012locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive).\015\012It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical\015\012current into the water.
\015\012
\015\012To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door\015\012and press these buttons in sequence...

\015\012All the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic\015\012cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2\015\012minutes). You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal. If the\015\012issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (i.e. element,\015\012thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door\015\012switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door\015\012latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

We have a Bosch SHE44C02UC/46 that suddenly won't start. I pushed the on/off button to start the dishes cleaning on the 'Power Scrub Plus' cycle and the display lights up with a 125 min. indication for the cleaning time, but the dishwasher never starts.

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before.

I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

Kenmore dishwasher 16934 will not start up for me. I can push any button to set the cycle(pots & pans, china gentle, quick rinse, normal wash) and the time shows up in the display, but when I push the start, two red horizontal lines appear in the time remaining display.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

Hi! We have a GE Profile PDW9280J0SS with electronic control malfunctions. I can't get it out of the ADDED HEAT mode and many of the other button lights won't light up.
