Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dacor Dishwasher Mod# MDW24S Not starting at all , digital display fault code= PF---CL Tennant says it randomly starts and makes a noise. Any ideas?


Answers :

OK Well PF means Power Fail, either it has been disconnected from the mains at some stage or the Power has gone OFF.\012\012\012

CL (CLOSE) is basically its telling you to close the door.

If the door is closed and you are still getting the code then you are going to have to look into the door latch assembly.

You may have anything from a bad micro switch within the latch itself or one of the switches has been knocked out of its place on the latch.

The last thing to check are the plug wire on the latch assembly. They can come loose and give you this problem.

With these symptoms, it is best to call a service man, and ask for a "Quote".as to the repair.

Dishlex global 460 fault.. Always stays on and makes a pumping sound while 'of' is displayed. Only way to turn it off is at the power point. Have tried turning it off at the power point for some time and re setting by pushing start & program at same time with no luck. According to the manual the code says "incorrect fill levet or time " and contact service for help. Any ideas?

Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C

I have the Kitchen aid KUDS01DL dishwasher. It was working fine until last week. When starting a cycle, the washer fills with water. Once filled, the motor makes a humming noise and does not circulate the water. I end up stopping the cycle and the discharge pump empties the water. I took apart and cleaned the basin this morning. I did find some random garbage but it did not seem blocked. Do you have any ideas?

The display panel displays random numbers and jumps around... When I start the dishwasher the front panel say: 180, then 67, then 39, then 69..68. 69. 66. 37. 180...etc... It seems to be running though... totally weird. The Control Board has NO error code. I replaced the Control Board. Didn't fix it.

LCD is flashing on and off every 2-3 seconds and makes the draw opening sound as it does this. There are no fault codes, rather all signs illuminate on/off with LCD.

I have an Asco D3350 dishwasher. When the cycle starts the machine fills with water and when there appears to be the right amount of water in the machine an error code F4 shows on the panel. 3 clicks can be heard during the first 5 seconds of the F4 code showing. If I cancel the cycle and start it again it pumps out the water and then fills again and the code returns. Any ideas?

I have a Bosch SHU5316UC dishwasher. The last two times it ran, my wife says the display said "CL" (for clean) after running through the cycle, but she heard a "motor running" until she opened the dishwasher. Attempting to run the dishwasher tonight, it won't start - it displays a "P" (error code?) when you attempt to start it. Can you tell me what the error code P is? Thanks, Dave

Dishwasher sounds as if it starts cycle, then stops, bleeps, and Fat and prewash lights come on. Manual says to turn off machine, turn off tap, wait 30 seconds and turn it all back on, but it doesn't make any difference. Manual says 'If the above does not solve the problem, check that the water feed pipe is not blocked' however, it doesn't say where this is, or how to do it. Please help!

Dishwasher has been stored. Was working fine-ish for first half dozen washes. Now not starting wash. From troubleshooting in manual I'm holding down first two buttons and it's saying "End", but keeps moving back to SOAK function (17 mins) and not doing anything. Display shows whole soak cycle to run, but on holding down start button it makes no difference - doesn't beep to acknowledge and start cycle.

When I start the top drawer it defaults to 5 minutes (with the lights Heavy, Fast, Rinse highlighted) runs for a couple minutes, then stops and the LED starts randomly cycling through all kinds of codes very quickly. There is water in the tub that has not drained after completing the couple minutes of operation. This cycle repeats itself if I hit the power button again after the LED starts freaking out. The 5 min cycle shows in the LED, sometimes with the no circulation error, sometimes with the

I wanted to heat up a cup of tea. As I've done many times before, I pressed Time, then 1:20 seconds, then I pressed Auto Start, but fear I may have touched the button below it, which says Start in small red print. The oven wouldn't switch on, and I noticed a small green u-shaped mark had appeared at the base of the 1: I pressed Clear, and repeated my movements, making sure this time that I pressed Auto Start.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Hi, I have installed a new model GLD2250RDC0 Frigidaire dishwasher and it will not start. Power and water supply is connected. When I push the cycle button for Normal the light comes on but when I push Start nothing happens except the "hi-temp wash" and "no heat dry" lights flash.
