Have a Miele G1220SC dishwasher. It recently developed a strange problem: when switching it on ALL program lights come on and the machine starts taking water. after a while it stops taking water and starts to pump water, all the time all program indicators remain on. if you leave it on a while ( about 4 or 5 minutes) it is impossible to switch off the machine with the main switch, all you can do to stop it is unplug it. anyone experienced something like this and have any idea what part is malfun

I have the Whirlpool DU 1100 dishwasher and the clean light kept blinking. I did the heated dry, normal combination and got it to run through the diagnostic check and sure enough it cleared the lights and appeared ready to run. When I would start it up again it would run the water and then get to the soad wash cycle and stop. No more lights it just stopped. I have been through the diagnostic process 3 times and still same problem. HELP

Our dishwasher was taking in water, circulating it but not heating it up or moving through the cycle. My husband took the control panel off and there were some scorch marks on it so we got a new one. He replaced the control panel and the dishwasher went fine for one night. It heated up and washed everything perfectly. The next day when we put it on it was back to square one plus the lights on the control panel are now not working. Just wondered if anyone has any idea what we could do or are

Hi Mike, what you need to do is check where the drain hose connects to the garbage disposal. Remove the clamp and hose and look inside the hole of the disposal to see if it is clear. This is where they will normally plug up. Does the unit fill with w ... Dishwashers

My GE 2800 model dishwasher is not starting properly. When you start any cycle the water appears to be flowing in very slowly with no pumping action taking place. This dishwasher is approximately 15 years old and for the last several years I have suspected some problem with the electronics as certain cycles would not run properly.

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

My dishwasher (Optima G2420) had an error F13 for sometime. By turning it off and restarding it would work. But now drain/intake light flashes and nothing is happening. We have checked the triple filter, the filter where water comes in ect. It drains the water but it appears that it cannot take water in. There is a white unit that the intake water goes in and I think that might be the proble.

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all

Got a Indesit Di620 Dishwasher that trips RCD after power up & immediateley as you shut door.Fault is definately related to pressure switch, disconnected pipe to switch and then able to start cycle, without tripping, small amount of water out of pipe,but cycle only lasts for a few minutes, then stops. ( blowing into pressure switch trips rcd )How can i test switch, or is it a water level problem ??Any help would be good, thanks S.C

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse
