Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Plumbed in new dishwasher wash light and pre wash light flashing nothing happening ! manual says longer inlet time possible cause -faucets not opened?


Answers :

Hello lozjojo,
\015\012Based on your problem description, you either have no water pressure at the inlet valve or the inlet valve isn't operating and allowing water in. Prior to installation, did you make sure you removed ALL the packing material from everything? Is there any way tha you can check your supply lines for water? Also, some of the new flex water supply lines have built in anti leak 'shuttle valvles' inside them to prevent flooding if the line bursts.. Unfortunately, I don't know how you tied in the supply lines to the dishwasher itself.. If you used the anti-flood type supply lines.. that is another consideration to investogate.. If nothing I suggested resolves your problem.. please elaborate on the method you used to supply water to the system.. Good luck .. and hope I helped you...

Hi All, we have just bought and fitted a Hoover HEDS 668-80 Dishwasher. When we tried to run the first wash, the pre-wash and wash light both light up simultaneously. The instruction manual says this means, "longer inlet time", with the possible causes "Faucets is not opened". Could anyone help? Many Thanks. Lisa. :-)

Hi - I have a Neff S5456X2GB/13 and it has decided to wash cold and doesn't dry. When washing in auto mode it seems to take forever but does eventually stop, and I've noticed that when opened the time to go indicator can vary quite a lot (sometime goes backwards in that if you wait ten minutes and look again, it's saying it's going to take longer than it did before) I have replaced the pump in the past so I know how to dismantle the machine. What are the possible causes of this problem and ho

What does Frigidaire dishwasher timer code "Hd"stand for? It's not listed in the manual and I couldn't find it listed online. If it's just a "Hold" code (which is what I suspect) for extra washing time, what would be causing that? I'd like the shortest wash time possible to save $$$ and resources. Model number is BGBD2432KFO. Thank you.


“HO” or “Hd” means the \015\012dishwasher’s cycle time is being extended while it is heating water. At \015\012certain points in the wash cycle, the dishwasher uses hotter water to \015\012ensure a clean load of dishes. ... Frigidaire PLD2855RFC Dishwasher

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

Hi, I have a Siemens SE24A230GB/17 dishwasher and it is not completing the wash cycle (any selected). It appears to be stuck on the 'wash' part of the program. I have done the reset actions as advised in the User Manual and tried another program, without success. I have found that the possible causes could be the timer or thermostat. The estimated time remaining display counts down, but the program does not complete the wash and move onto rinse and dry. Any help or advice you can provide would

I have just moved into a home with the DS-603i and used it for the first time. I put it on the first load and seemed to go for way to long. so i opened it up and t washed the first load ok, but continued to make noises. It would make these noises even when draw opened. Turn on & off at power and it doesn't change the noises. The light on inside indicates rince, which i think is a F1 error code according to the manual online. Any tips on how to fix this?


The F1 error code indicated a leak problem. The noise that you hear is from the pump motor. There is a leak due to the top lid not sealed properly, so the water is shooting out during the wash cycle.
