Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Frigidaire Dishwasher Won't run, the light is green on heavy load but won't start or cancel?


Answers :

Well, I was gonna say make sure the door is latched, but most units won't even come on if its not. All I can think of is that their is something obstructing the sprayer blade? Otherwise, their is an issue with the programming itself. I suggest contacting the manufacturer and having them troubleshoot it with\\for you.

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher, SS, model # KUDIO1ILBL6. When you press the ''normal'' button to run it, nothing happens. Tried other cycles and same thing, the green light goes on above the cycle but its just not starting. I tried resetting by opening, pressing high temp scrub then energy saver dry, high temp scrub, energy save dry, then close and hit cancel. Is there any other combo to reset it? or does it sound like something else is wrong? thanks!

My Frigidaire model FDBB2040FC3 "acts" like it starts running when I press start but after just a few moments the Start indicator light goes out and the Hi-Temp Wash and Air Dry lights start flashing... I can hear it "running" or doing something but it clearly isn't actually cleaning anything. I've tried cancelling, letting it reset itself and then restarting... even shut it off from the breaker. Each time the problem returns. We're a family of 6 so our dishwasher is pretty important in this hou

Hi...my dishwasher 'clean' light continues to blink. I can hit cancel and it sounds like the cancel cycle is running. After that the light keeps blinking and I can not start the machine. If you hit start the light goes on, then stops, and the clean light flashes again. Any clues? Thanks!

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

My daughter accidentally turned on our GE GLDA690 dishwasher. I can't seem to cancel it out without actually starting the cycle. I opened the door before the cycle started but now it is sitting there beeping. The obvious thing is to load it with dishes and run it. But it is just the two of us and we don't really have a load full. Owner's manual is no help. Even turning off the circuit breaker will not stop this infernal beeping. How do I cancel it? Why isn't there a cancel button?

My smeg dishwasher seems to be permanently in wash mode. The light on the menu of settings no longer flashes, but permanently is on, and when I run a load it never stops. I hear the two beeps as if the dishwasher is starting a load so it seems to be cycling through over and over. How can I fix this and get the blinking light back? Thanks


You have a timer relay issue ,probable need a new board for it ,a cheap fix would be to time it and see how long it take to run full cycle and put a regulaer outlet timer on it or a alarm off your stove or what ever,save a couple of bucks ... Smeg STX2 Dishwashers

Baumatic (BKD62SS or BKD62W .3) Dishwasher will not do a normal load but will run in a strange start up mode I found. When I press the power button, select a cycle, then press start the dishwasher will no longer do anything. 5 seconds after pressing start it will make a light hum noise, a little like heating water. After about a minute the dishwasher won't have done anything. It will then beep 30 times with the third led on the set of four (don't know what it means) will flash a lot. The beeps t

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

How do I reset a KitchenAid Whisper Quiet Plus? Right now, if I try to initiate a heavy cycle (or normal cycle, or whatever) all that happens is the cancel light lights up and the dishwasher makes a moaning noise. If I let this run its course, nothing happens (i.e., after the moaning stops and the cancel light is no longer on, if I try to initiate a cycle, the same thing happens all over again).
