I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning. When I open the door, the "Clean" light and the PowerScrub button are red. When i close the door, the light go off but nothing happens. One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change. We have switched the power off at the powerpoint and on again a few times but this has not rectified the problem. It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can


It has been suggested to switch the machine on/off a couple of times and the flashing light will not reappear. Until this light goes off the dishwasher will not start. All the filters should be cleaned free of any leftover food particles. What i mean ... Dishwashers

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

Wont start I've had the washer for many years with minimal problem. Yesterday when I closed the door no light went on and the washer would not start.  After 20 minutes or so it suddenly went on and worked fine.  I thought that it might have not completed its last cycle. Today, however, I had the same problem and it's been over an hour and still hasn't started. (I checked the circuit breaker and it's fine)

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

After dishwasher was started, and water stared to enter the machine, it was unlatched and left with the lever in the open position for some time. The control dial had automatically moved 5/6 degrees clockwise and left there. Now the machine does not want to start no matter what I do. Power is to the machine, latch is moved to the right, but nothing happens. What's next. Thanks for any help you can give.

The Dishwasher PLD2850RDC2 will not start. The CL flashes, the type of cycle pressed on the key pad does respond, but nothing happens when START is pressed. Steps taken: -Door is clicked shut -Power breaker has been turned off and back on -All dishwasher moving parts have been moved by hand to ensure no obstructions are in the way. Best guess is the key pad is just non responsive. I hope there is an easy solution. Thank you.

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???


Hi \015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. As the water is not draining and clicking is\015\012coming from the bottom so the issue seems to be with the drain pump solenoid. Usually, these issues are related\015\012to ... Kenmore Dishwashers
