Jackson jp-24b purchased this machine used, cant figure out how to work it. I flip the auto cycle on, and then the power switch. The fill light turns green and i assume water is filling up in the machine. In the meantime there are two small red external hoses that hot water comes and i currently just have those hanging in the sink. At the same time, nothing is happening during the wash cycle, the wash gauge doesnt even move only the rinse gauge. Also when i try to drain it nothing happends (begi

Hi, I have a zanussi DE6744S. I can select any program and water fills as normal. The problem is that the cycle runs and runs and dosn't stop unless I turn the machine off. When I restart the machine it just carries on until I press the current program button in for a about 10 seconds and the program stops. On the odd occasion it ends normally on the economy cycle (30 mins) but its pot luck. It does wash as normal but dosn't seem to get past constant washing (no drying) . Hope you can help, S

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

Our dishwasher won't start (model number 665.16049401). We had a similar problem last summer and a repairman came and fixed it. The problem was that the water level had gotten too low and so the machine locked itself off. This made sense as, at the time, I remembered filling the pool, running laundry and someone taking a shower all at the same time that I turned the dishwasher on. I am guessing this is the same thing that has happened now. The repairman put in a code and the machine worked. Can

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?

My dishwasher begins its cycle with a whirring noise, what sounds like the powder drawer then clicks open, but after that nothing happens. The water does not come in. The dial clicks round a couple more points, the machine 'whirrs' again, but still no water/washing action. The machine then just stops/cuts out. Is this a plumbing problem or an electrical problem?


My guess is that the inlet valve is not operating or there is no water supply to the dishwasher.If it is the inlet valve, replacement is not expensive and it is easy to get to (it is on the end of the cold water hose inside the dishwasher usually at ...

KUDS30IXBL My dishwasher stops mid cycle. Technician said it was too many suds and cutting off. I use cascade and jet dry and nothing else. There has been no other soap in the dishwasher. After it cuts off on normal (soap dispensed) I restart on light/china with no detergent. Sometimes it runs through with no problem and sometimes it stops with all lights off. Any suggestions?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, M# SHU3035UC/U12. After the cycle is finished, the water is still on bottom of machine, it doesn't pump it out, so I changed the pump. Now when it washes, it fills and washes, when the timer advances it dies, there is no noise and nothing happens, the only way that I get the machine to pump water is by lifting the red overflow lever. Only then does it pump out the water. what can be my problem?

The motor continues to run with the diswasher powered off. In addition it will no longer enter wash mode. It can be powered on and wash mode can be selected, but nothing happens except the motor continues to run. Cycling the power feed off and back on does not solve the problem.

Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

I tried the steps listed at this website for the same issue I am having. http://www.fixya.com/support/t273954-kenmore_elite_dishwasher The steps worked to get the dishwasher to "reset" with all the lights coming on. The problem I am having now is that after the "reset" the dishwasher starts to run a small cycle for about 5 minutes. Upon opening the washer, nothing has happened inside (no water, no visible movement of parts, no soap container opening). Upon closing the dishwasher and trying
