Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hi, I have a Fagor 1VF-453IT dishwasher and one day I switched it on - it did nothing else but all the red LEDs (5, I think) started to flash. And that's it, it doesn't run. No idea why, but I'd appreciate a hint before calling a mechanic or starting spending huge amounts for parts and repairs. Any chance for a reset or something? Thanks a lot!

Have Kenmore ultra wash model 665.1604, purchased in 2004. no problems until yesterday. Push start button after selected wash cycle/drying options.

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

I have a Siemens dishwasher serie IQ which has had water damage. There has been water pressure on the drain tube. Probably the mashine has been partly filled with drain water. Now it can start and pump out the water, but it never starts any washing program. Well it starts and the time left (e.g. 15 min on the shortest program) is displayed. But then it does not start to wash or count down. Any idea what is wrong or broken? Anyway I can repair or reset the dishwasher?
