I have a Frigidaire Professional series less than five years old. It won't run and flashes the wash, clean, and sanitize lights simultaniously. Any thoughts on what the problem is and whether it is worth fixing? This is the second Frigidaire I have had in ten years. The model number is PLD2851RDC3. Any help would be greatly appreciated before I go out and get my third dishwasher in ten years!

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

The washing, heated dry, and normal wash light just flash. I have unplugged and plugged it back in several time, i tried restting it by holding down the Rinse only button for 15 seconds. I pressed the high temp ater, heated dry, high temp water, heated dry buttons to try to reset. I also ran the hot water line that feeds the dishwasher until the water was hot. Nothing has helped. The machine is18 months old and therefor no longer under warranty.

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

We have a Whirlpool GU980 Series Dishwasher. All the lights work. No matter what setting I use, it fills up, and then nothing happens. The "washing" light will be turned on, but nothing happens. I try to drain the machine, it will make a sound like it's going to begin a process, then it just stops. Do these things just "die" after some time? This machine is 7 years old.

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both.
