Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Bosch she4am Unit starts briefly, then stops about a minute into the operation and lights the CLEAN led. I located the diagnostics code paper, ran the test a few times, and come up with the same code...the CLEAN led lit indicates a door switch problem. I removed the door switch, it's a magnetic hall effect transistor..seems to work but not sure it's showing proper voltages. It reads 8vdc or so across the switch with door open, and about 11.7vdc with door closed. Seems too narrow a range to me

We have a Whirlpool ADG 7560 dishwasher which has recently started playing up. When switched on for a normal wash, after a short time the machine starts to beep. If you open the door the green programme light is on the pre rinse and the start light is flashing. After starting the cycle the few times eventually it works normally. Have cleaned all the filters etc.

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

Have a GE Quiet Power 3 Dishwasher. Went to reun it and when I closed the door no lights came on to pick a wash cycle. Nothing like it lost power. No buttons work, nothing.

My Hotpoint diswasher suddenly stopped working last night. It seems like it has no power to it, as the motor or pump does not seem to come on at all. Obviously when I get home from work, I will check the obvious first - making sure it has power to it, connections are secure etc. (I had a wire break before) If it does have power, I would assume checking the door switch and timer is next. Any suggestions, and any suggestions for checking the door switch and timer??


Sounds like your on the right track. I would use an ohmeter to check the resistance of the door switch by placing the meter probes on each side of the switch. Test while opened and closed position. Same with timer ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water. I push wash cycle, indicator light comes on, shut door and nothing happens.  So the door switch seemed like a good place to start. Since I am an electrician I thought I would give it a shot. When plugged in, the wire from the motor is 120V but when jumpered to the neutral(common on the door switch), motor doesn't operate. Although, I have heard the motor turn over momentarialy when trying to run unit e

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C

Double dash on display and when put in service/maintenance mode, all the lights came on and stayed on overnight. Still not working until I tested the door switch. It looks like poor engineering on the design. Plastic bar that depressed the door switch was not pushing all the way. It appears that the bar was bent to compensate for the too close tolerances and after the depressing of the switch for six years it did not reach anymore. So I got hair dryer, heated the plastic bar and bent it down to

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDV24SE. The "door open" light stays on. I have tested the switch on the door and it appears to be working. There is nothing blocking the door closing, the light just stays on which prevents the dishwasher from working. I am technically astute, just can't solve this problem (yet)..

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump

Hi our nemo dishwasher starts a cycle and fills but does not start cleaning cycle. Light under start button flashes. If start button is held on it resets and pumps out. We live in an area with high clacium in water. At first the machine only pumped out and did not start filling. I have cleaned the level sensor ( membrane switch filled with calcium) and it at least stopped pumping and started to fill. It does not proceed from here. I checked the level switch it seems to be working OK (NO and NC c

Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

I have a Whirlpool Gold (Quite Partner) Dishwasher that is about 9 years old. I was using a liquid gel Dishwasher liquid and it has been working fine. After I switched to a Cascade Action Pads (solid powder pallets), its detergent dispenser did not open during the wash cycle. I cleaned the dispenser and switched back to liquid gel. Now the detergent dispenser (that looks clean and fine otherwise) has stopped opening during the wash cycle. What's wrong and what can be done? I can be contacted
