When dishwasher is turned on to the cycle mode - it fills with water - heater heats water to the proper temp - pump starts - washer goes through it's complete cycle - even pumping out the wash water and the drying cycle,then shuts down. the problem is that it does not circulate the wash water thru. the spray heads-even though the circ,pump is running.Even though the unit is 8 yrs.old and hasn't run for 6 yrs,my wife&i do our dishes by hand. our unit is a GU1200XTKB0 Serial# FL4617501

I have a Bosch SHU43 dishwasher, about 6 years old. After starting a cycle, it will run for a while, perhaps 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the cycle, then shut off. After 10-20 minutes it will start up again, run for a few minutes, then shut off again. It ends up taking about 12 hours for a cycle to finish. The problem started off somewhat intermittent and has gotten worse over the last few weeks. I've checked the electrical box in the front right bottom, and the connection is good. I've even

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model # 66513449K900 that will not stop running. I think it is stuck on the drain cycle. I can start the dishwasher on a cycle and it appears to clean the dishes, but after the cycle is complete, it continues running and running (on the drain cycle) until you open the door. What could this be?


It is possible that the machine does not move off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to end the main program controller must receive the feedback so as to switch off the circuit at the end o ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel front- with buttons on the inside top( same as display, and the washing cycle won't start. Water seems to be running into the washer, as I can hear it, but the cycle never starts. Recently, I had clogged garbage disposer issue that has been resolved. The dish washer drains into the disposer, and I had free standing water left behind in the washer for 2days during this time.. Could this be the issue? Can you help me figure out this problem? Thanks!!

I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDB3100AWX and this week we started having problems with it not cleaning and rinsing. We have been using a liquid soap and it is not being extracted from the dispenser during the cycle. When the cycle is complete, the soap has run down the inside of the door.

I have an Asko 3251 that is about 4 years old. It has been great up until 2 nights ago when it just keeps running when is has completely cycled. You can open the door and it keeps running. You can push the shut off button and the lights on the controls go out but something keeps running. The only way I can shut it off is by shutting off the circuit breaker. The next morning I can turn the breaker back on and it will be off. Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?

The top drawer in the wash cycle after starting will only run three to four minutes and it drops into pause. have to go and push the start button again for the cycle to continue a few more minutes before it drops out. and I have to do the procedure again. The cycle continues where it left off. I had an issue with a missing rubber gasket initially. The service person came out and removed the front, and this is when the problem started. It might be a coincidence. The repair person does not wish to

When I start the top drawer it defaults to 5 minutes (with the lights Heavy, Fast, Rinse highlighted) runs for a couple minutes, then stops and the LED starts randomly cycling through all kinds of codes very quickly. There is water in the tub that has not drained after completing the couple minutes of operation. This cycle repeats itself if I hit the power button again after the LED starts freaking out. The 5 min cycle shows in the LED, sometimes with the no circulation error, sometimes with the

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

I have the E3 error on my Smeg DWI614 dishwasher which would indicate a heater error, however it is heating the water in the bottom of the machine but it seems to time out. The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested). When I have done this (both times) the dishwasher has started again and run for 20+ cycles fine, then the issue com

I have a Kenmore Ultra 15895 or 15891. It fills with water then doesn't run. It will continue through it's cycles, but stays full of water. If I hit cancel before it completes the cycle, the number 2 shows in the display and nothing happens. If I let it complete the wash cycle, it will sometimes start and wash properly.

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?


After 8 years service the seal may have perished, so you should feel for a crack by stretching the rubber where you noticed the leak. ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

The cycle runs through completely and starts itself again OR it finishes the rinse cycle, does not drain and stays at that stage with the lights on as though it is running.
