I have a Whirlpool ADP6515. It's been working fine for about 2 years now but recently cycles are not completing properly, it can run for 30-40 minutes depending upon cycle. The start light is flashing a 4 times repeatedly, I think this happens when it moves from a wash to a pump cycle but not sure. We have to hold down the start button to force it to go to the end of the cycle and the the lights stop. If we do that we can then use the dishwasher the next time, but only after we force it to go to

No matter which cycle selection in pushed, the dishwasher only starts up in the "normal" 93 min cycle. If I try other cycle options, and persist, I get an ER message and the cycle stops prior to the soap powder door opening and never completes the cycle. Only with turning off power for several minutes and receiving the PF message, and resetting ONE TIME that message can I then select any cycle, at which time the machine "defaults" to the "normal" full cycle. If I do not disturb that cycle, it wi

I own the Siemans SL34A006UC dishwasher which had the recall repair completed. Now it doesn't work right. The unit goes through any of the cleaning choices but when it comes time to drain, the unit stops for a few seconds, swishes water for a couple seconds, stops again, then swishes for a couple seconds, stops and then goes back in to regular cleaning mode until the timer reaches zero. At each drain cycle, it does the same thing earlier mentioned 3 times in a row, then back to washing. The unit

The dishwasher does not complete a cycle. It starts the cycle just fine but then it stops after one minute. It seems like it gets stuck and won't move to the next step. I do hear a slight clicking noise similar to a clock ticking, like its trying to move on, but then it stops. It clicks three times. When I open the door the "fine china" light is on even though I set it on "normal". Is there a "re-set" button?

I have a Candy CD650 dishwasher which is not washing properly. Basically, the detergent tablets seem to be getting stuck in the tray. Most times I open the door, the tablet is a pile of mush inside the tray. Other times it is on the bottom of the dishwasher - again a pile of mush! Sometimes, it starts the program & sounds like it's about to start a wash cycle, but then gives up! it gives one short woosh, the stops again. Any ideas how to fix this? I don't have a manual so can't look there.

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 cleared the filter on the inlet hose because we use tank water which does have particles in it frm time to time, but this made no difference.

My cda dishwasher cw448 is 18 months old, and has recently begun to stop before the end of the cycle. When I open the machine, 3 lights flash, (one of them the rinse button), and the machine bleeps repeatedly. Why doesn't the cycle complete? I've checked the filters, the spray arms, all the dispensers, and manual doesn't give any answer. This doesn't happen all the time, but is occuring more often now.
