Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

WE HAVE A MAYTAG PLUS DISHWASHER ABOUT 3 YEARS OLD OR LESS. WE WERE GETTING READY TO WASH A LOAD OF DISHES AND THE LOCK BUTTON IS ON AND WILL NOT COME OFF, WE HAVE TRIED PUSHING THE DRAIN OFF BUTTON BUT IT WILL ONLY BLINK, WASHER WILL NOT RUN. LOCK BUTTON WILL BLINK 3 TIMES AND STOP WHAT DO WE DO?


Answers :

Try holding down the drain button for about 5 seconds.

If that still does not do it for you, try taking power from the machine to let it reset itself, easiest is to unplug the unit or flip the breaker switch for the section of the kitchen. Leave it off for at least 30 seconds to let the machine reset the computer.

If that still does not do it, then you may have something that's clogged into the drain line of the dishwasher and it needs to be removed before the drain can open or close. Service would be required for it.
Hold the lock button down for 3 to 5 sec. and it should shut off

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!

I have a KitchenAid Model KUDP01FLBT5. After I push one of the clean buttons, and the start button and close it, nothing happens. The indicator lights for the buttons come on as you push them. When this first started, you would ahve to open and close the door and re-set the buttons (not sure if that button re-setting had anything to do with it) up to 20 or 30 times, and it would eventually come on. Now it won't anymore. Help!

I have a Whirlpool GU1100 built-in diswasher that will not clear the pot & pans selection. It is stuck with the pots & pans and the cancel buttons lit and blinking. It will not start or clear. I have tryed to shut the power off for awhile and this has not helped. Other buttons can be pushed and will light but the other two remain blinking. If the clear button is pushed it will clear the other button but not the pots & pans or itself. Is this a problem I can fix myself?
