Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I opened the door before the drying cycle finished. I pressed the cancel button, then I pressed "normal wash" and the "start" button and it didn;t start. Then did "cancel" again . I pressed the "heat" button for five seconds to lock the door so I wouldn;t make the same mistake again. It still won't start. Now the "cancel" button won't work and the start button flashes. What do I do now?


Answers :

HI. The unit will need to be reset. This is achieved by unplugging the unit for five minutes. If unplugging is not an option, simply,shut down the appropriate circuit breaker for five minutes. This action will, essentially, reset the logic sector. Once you have initiated a proper reset, try to run a washing cycle and observe. If the previous faults reappear, this will indicate that the damage is severe.

The main control PCB or timer(older models) will need to be replaced.

  • NOTE_ Most manufactures will equip there units with safety features that will not allow for normal cycle operations, if the door is open, during the cycle. This is why resetting is the first approach to this actual problem.

Dishwasher: Kenmore ultra wash sensor quiet guard plus. I'm in a rental so I don't have the manual or model number. A few days ago it just wouldn't start the wash cycle. When you press normal wash then start the no heat dry and lock lights flash every other second or so but nothing happens. I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck. Also tried turn

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

Our Bosch dishwasher #SHU9922UC (FD8007) will not turn on properly. Only its drain pump starts -- and keeps running -- when it's powered on and the door's closed. Pressing the two "drain cancel" buttons for more than 3 seconds doesn't help. Neither does cutting off power, then turning it back on in the hopes of resetting the machine's 'computer'. No water inflow occurs. Help?


I had a similar issue after I replaced a bad drain pump, seems the logic got hung up.. I poured in a pitcher of water, closed the door, it drained and was then ok - worth a try. If not, you may have a bad water level switch. ... Dishwashers

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

I wanted to heat up a cup of tea. As I've done many times before, I pressed Time, then 1:20 seconds, then I pressed Auto Start, but fear I may have touched the button below it, which says Start in small red print. The oven wouldn't switch on, and I noticed a small green u-shaped mark had appeared at the base of the 1: I pressed Clear, and repeated my movements, making sure this time that I pressed Auto Start.

When I press the start button, Bosch dishwasher (model SHY56A 05UC) just keep running the motor pumping the water out of dishwasher, irrespective of: 1) the wash cycle it is on, 2) whether the door is closed or open, 3) whether I cancel drain cycle, as told by Bosch Cust Svc in following steps: - "Cancel Drain" by pressing 'Quick Wash' and 'Regular Wash' buttons together for a minute until it shows 0* - Shut power off for a minute and wait for a minute - Restart on Quick Cycle.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model #DU920PFGQ4. The controls locked light is flashing, and when I press the air dry key for 5 seconds it won't unlock, however the cancel/drain light starts flashing. When I press the cancel key the controls lock light will stop flashing, but will resume as soon as I release the cancel key. I have tried disconnecting power for 24 hours, but as soon as I plug it back up it does the same thing. Nothing else on the control panel will work.

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control lock function. Pushing and holding the button for 3 seconds does not disable it.

Our Ikea Nutid Whirlpool dishwasher locked up recently. It started when someone was wiping off the top of the door where the control buttons are located. The dishwasher was locked on the china setting. Holding the cancel button, shutting off the breaker did not seem to clear it. Is there a way to reset the dishwasher? There was flashing on buttons but I cannot remember how many flashes or what one was flashing.

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?
