Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Gianni dishwasher won't drain or restart lights are on


Answers :

Possible fault in the program controller unit. It must be confirmed with a test on the drain valve/pump. If there is no power to the drain pump/valve at the time of cycle , then the program is not outputting and the fault is in the main controller unit.
\015\012However if there is power to the drain but without the drain valve/pump working to open out then the drain unit must be taken out, externally cleaned , backflushed and tested. If not the valve is faulty and needs a change.
There are a couple things you can check due to the unit not draining first shut off the water supply going to your unit and check the drain hose and disconnect it from the sink or garbage disposal where it ties into the pipe assure that there is no crud blocking the exit port of the hose that goes to the drain. the following parts you would need to de-install your unit and pull it out from under the counter you would next check to assure that the drain pump is not clogged and it is working properly as well it is possible to pull the drain pump out and using a powered jumper wire do a bench test to assure that the impellar is spinning properly some models also have a drain solenoid like on the ge versions this gives power to the pump as well if yours does have a solenoid try to free the solenoid from what ever is jamming it message me back your model number as well and i may be able to locate some further information on your unit I do fix alot of american type of dishwashers as well as european and others types like fagor as well. If you have any further questions message me back those as well and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows for me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick
\015\012p.s also how many lights are on and if they are on are they flashing and if so how long in between each flash this usually distinguishes what the error code is on your unit by the flashing lights which would also point you directly to the actual problem rather then testing the whole unit Thanks again Rick

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

Dishwasher is less than a year old. Once in a while it will stop about 10 minutes into the cycle, then the display lights will blink. Sometimes it will stop and the lights wont blink so we will come back later thinking it is done only to open it up and there is water sitting in the bottom. Doesnt happen all the time but sometimes and yesterday happened about 10 times finally gave up. I can cancel and restart the cycle but the same thing happens.
