Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher surges at the start and end of the cycle but still washes ok. Is this a problem, it doesn't sound right?


Answers :

Some dishwashers depending on their programming rotate the motor impeller backwards at the start and end of the cycle to clear blockages, Also they can sound like they are surging if the water is a bit harder than it expects,
Keep and eye on the machine, as long as it doesn't demonstrate any other odd behavior it will be fine.

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any p

Asko d3100 dishwasher still giving problems after replacing inlet valve. When you press the start button all of the lights come on and there is some pumping sound with a dribble of water coming through from the right hand side. When you take your finger off the start button everything stops, no lights, no pumping. Anyone got any ideas?

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit, no kinks etc. machine 3 1/2 yrs old, just started making this noise. appears to complete rapid cycle but still making unusual sound. water drains away fine from this cycle, dont believe pipes / hoses are blocked.

I have a Whirlpool Gu180 ESJQ with a blinking green start light. If I clear this light (hold the start button for 5 second to place it in the end of cycle) then I can get it to start another wash cycle. However, the next wash cycle ends with a blinking start button again and the dishes aren't dry. I had an appliance service man come to check it out and he could not detect any problem! Now I have a leak!

The cycle doesn't seem to stop correctly. I start a load. It doesn't seem to matter which mode that I start in, but it will count-down the time, but at the end it hasn't stopped running. I've cleaned out the filter and the trap below. I've ran vinegar through a cycle. I've cleaned all of the spray arms. It doesn't seem to advance out of the wash mode. There is still some suds at the end. I have to end the cycle by canceling and draining it manually, then run a couple of "rinse--9 minute" cycles

The start/pause button beeps when pressed to start a program and the machine gives a beep in response and appears to start its initial sump emptying phase but stops within 1-2 secs. Have checked pump and found no problem but start time is so short that in cannot have sensed a problem in the pumping circuit. If I persist in holding the start/pause button in, it can be released after the initial sump emptying phase (2-3 mins) and phase 1 of the wash program goes to completion. At the end of the

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench.
