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

Our whirlpool ADP 6565 dishwasher stops very close to but short of the end of the cycle, with the on-button flashing. If we press that button for a few seconds, it starts again and completes the cycle.

I have a dishwasher that hasn't been draining properly. For a while I could hit cancel drain cycle again and it would clear 1/2-1 of water out. But now that doesn't always do it. Someone told me to take filter out and see if it needs to be cleaned. Otherwise we have no other sink/plumbing problems with other kitchen areas. Please help! one handyman told me no use to work on dishwashers they are just throwaway with parts/service being so expensive.

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

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric
