On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?

Dishwasher starts and runs to 2nd rinse cycle, when pump starts to pump water out, all lights on front display flash along with key pab lights blinking. you can turn off and restart, but is does the same. Diswasher will also try to start when in off mode. Replaced circuit board and it does to same. Did I get a bad circuit board or is there another problem. Also when I try water service test, I get a Rinse aid fault.


U REPLACED THE CIRCUIT BOARD IN THE DOOR, THE ONE BEHIND THE CONTROL BUTTONS? THAT IS THE TIMER, IT IS KNOWN AS THE CCU OR CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT, THAT IS WHAT CONTROLS ALL TIMED FUNCTIONS, SO THAT REALLY IS THE ONLY PART THAT CAN CAUSE THIS PROBLEM ... Frigidaire 24 in.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold. The filter at the bottom of the compartment is clean, the drain pump spins freely. I've also checked for any leaks in the bottom of the machine that would trip the styrofoam/microsw
