Hotpoint Model HDA 3500N 10 BB Unit is only about a year old. The dial does not move. I noticed it when the washer was on for more than 3 hours and saw that the dial was still in the middle of the wash cycle. I then turned it to the rince cycle which operated there (not moving) until I manually moved it to dry. Did not move from there either. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water.

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.

Hello. I have a Kitchen Aide KUDG255HWH1 that will not start from a cold state. The "Energy Saver Dry" and "Normal" indicator light/ switches failed to operate about 1 month ago and since then I have needed to use the "High Temp Wash" and Soak & Scrub" cycles to get the unit to run. Now these two indicator kight will illuninate but the unit will not start when I depress the "On" soft switch. When I depress the cancel switch the unit starts with what sounds like a pre-start cycle. Pleas

Dishwasher Fault Hi, My dishwasher is a Diplomat ADP8322 (which i think is a rebadged whirlpool unit) & has been playing up recently. When you start a cycle it is fine for a minute or so then it starts beeping, the rinse light comes on & the light next to the start button flashes 11 times, pauses then repeats. I have read online that this flashing relates to what the fault is, but i cannot find out what fault the 11 flashes relate to. The first time this happened i cleaned out all of the filters

We have just moved into this unit fitted with a MIDEA WQP12 - 9011B dishwasher with NO MANUAL. What can we do ? We have been using the dishwasher by turning the operating KNOB to a position and pushing in the POWER KNOB. The machine then goes through a cycle of 80 to 100 minutes but without an USER OPERATING MANUAL, we have no idea of whether the dishwasher is being operated correctly.

It could be the lid switch. See if "jiggling" the door handle pin points the problem. The door switch normally sits behind the door handle.\015\012\015\012If so, it is either a faulty door switch, or more likely a brocken piece of plastic ... Siemens Dishwashers

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers
