I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens. Now I can't even get the lights on front to turn off. The lock button flashes as though the door is open, but its not as far as I can tell. I have to press the latch in to open the door. I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds. Then last week, the diswasher would shut off in mid cycle and all lights would turn off with water still in the dishwasher. Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the brea

Asko 1585 Dishwasher. Lately the washer has not been completing it's cycle without going into the all lights flashing mode. Usually just opening the door, closing then pushing start gets it going again. Yesterday this happened and it was restarted as described, then it go stuck in what appeared to be a drain mode - all lights flashing, drain motor running. It was in this mode for several hours and could not be stopped by any means. Pushing buttons or opening the door had no effect. Even c

My Smeg dishwasher when turned on, the 'normal wash light' is flashing (rather that just staying on). It then beeps through the cycle and goes for about 2 and half hours. Even when I open the door and reclose it continues to beep through the cycle. Any ideas?????

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on? Dishwasher came with the house when we purchased it 6 years ago. Proba

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start. The 'start' button was acting up and would have to press a few times before light would flash and then the dishwasher would work. Now everything lights up but start button does not work. Opene

Control panel buttons don't work. Seem to be stuck in the "Lock On" mode. Can't turn off, and dishwasher won't run. When you open the door all lights go off, but as soon as you relatch the door, the "Lock On" light comes on, although sometimes it can be another light. In any case, it won't run.

I have a Kenmore Ultra wash 665 15895 dishwasher. It will not run any cycles. Symptoms: When I first close the door, the "Quick Rinse" light is on and the number 18 is displayed. When I push any button, the "Quick Rinse" light flashes continuously. If I touch any other button, both the "Quick Rinse" and "Pots and Pans" lights flash continuously.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2810LDC1) and a Er code appears in the display with the sensing, rinsing agent low, sanitized, and clean lights all flashing as is the child lock light.

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

My bosch dishwasher, one month old, has the active light flashing and the reset button won't reset it when I push it. A friend that was over opened the door when it was running because she can with hers, but ever since then, I had to take the water out and the active light is flashing and the wash light is lite. I hold the reset button for 5 seconds and then I shut it off for about 5 minutes, but when I turn it back on, the same things are happening


It sounds like the float is stuck. There is a float that stops the water from coming out when you open the door. It sounds like your friend stoped it in mid cycle and it jammed in the open position. Look on the inside of the machine for a plastic pie ... Bosch Dishwashers

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.


There is a key (usually the dry key) that needs to be held for 4 seconds to turn the child lock on or off. If it comes on again try holding this key for 4 seconds.If it was pressed and held by mistake this could cause the lock to activate ... Kenmore Dishwashers
