Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

No matter which cycle selection in pushed, the dishwasher only starts up in the "normal" 93 min cycle. If I try other cycle options, and persist, I get an ER message and the cycle stops prior to the soap powder door opening and never completes the cycle. Only with turning off power for several minutes and receiving the PF message, and resetting ONE TIME that message can I then select any cycle, at which time the machine "defaults" to the "normal" full cycle. If I do not disturb that cycle, it wi

\015\012It will be helpful if you provide the make and model no. of the dishwasher.

\015\012At this stage I can speculate the controller (assuming it is electronic) is playing up. However, hard to know why the panel switches are causing problem. maybe the two are linked.

GE GSD4920Z dishwasher. Problem is that it does not drain completely at the end of the cycle--about an inch of water remains. After checking for clogs, etc, we followed a troubleshooting procedure which involves a hard reset (power off, then reset twice at beginning of cycle) and this procedure successfully drains the tub. However the next time that it's used on a normal cycle, water remains again. Suggestions?

Siemens aquaVario I have a 2007 (?) Siemens Aquavario Automatic 3 in 1 dishwasser. One of the programs got stuck with 1 minute at the timer. It was running like this most likely for more then one hour over the normally scheduled time; we don't know for sure since we were out of the house. It produced some sort of 'sucking / blowing' sound and continued doing so after I opened and closed the door again. After the reset (pushing two buttons at the same time) the timer went back to zero but the sou

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. 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

We keep getting the message that the wash arm is blocked (Heavy/Rinse), yet the arm is free. We have replaced everything in the drawer that might impede the arm. We have checked the arm for food blockage, but there is none. Moved the rotors around to different drawers. We have replaced the rotor and the pump motor. Still get the message. It is annoying to receive the message four or five times a cycle. I think it is whatever is sensing the arm block, but have no idea what that might be. Af

Hello, my Frigidaire Professional Series dishwasher (AquaSurge with SpeedClean) gives me error messages; it does not allow me to use any setting other than normal wash; it stops mid-cycle; it needs to be reset - either on the appliance itself or by tripping the breaker. I am never sure that the dishwasher will complete a cycle. Thank you for your assistance.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time.

The dishwasher does not complete a cycle. It starts the cycle just fine but then it stops after one minute. It seems like it gets stuck and won't move to the next step. I do hear a slight clicking noise similar to a clock ticking, like its trying to move on, but then it stops. It clicks three times. When I open the door the "fine china" light is on even though I set it on "normal". Is there a "re-set" button?

If I hold the cancel button in the unit drains then refills and the light starts to link again. I don't know how to reset this unit because I only have air dry.

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. I've flipped the breaker several times, and this does (usually) reset the controls to "Normal" and "Heat Dry", but when you push "Start" it switches back to the ADDED HEAT mode. When it goes through this cycle the soap dispenser doesn't open so the dishes don't get clean. I can't use the arrows to select different types of w

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?
