Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

When turn on the 3rd light in riseses is flashing on the hotpoint dc27 dishwasher


Answers :

This could be caused by a couple different things.
Your spray arm could have clogged holes and aren't turning or no water coming out, or the water pump may be clogged, loose, or faulty. Also check the drain to make sure the drain or drain screen isn't clogged.

\015\012Here is a troubleshooting service manual, it's a generic Dishwasher one, use this to help sort out your problem.\015\012Also look below, it MAY NOT apply to your situation, BUT it is amazing how many times, they respond to this.\015\012\015\012Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher, model KUDP02FR. The "normal" cycle light is flashing. When I push "cancel" or "resume/start", they start flashing as well, but the dishwasher won't start.

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

Whirlpool GU2400XTPT Dishwasher is on island of Utila, Honduras. Upon return after several months absence, light was flashing but dishwasher would not turn on, light would not turn off, no other buttons would light up. I am thinking a power surge might have hit it and maybe knocked something out. Problem is, I need a part from here to take down there and hope someone there can install it. Help! Thanks!

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!
