Hi, The machine will not complete a cycle. I think it may have started when the power was turned off at the mains during a cycle. Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished. Dishwasher tablet door never opens, dishes not cleaned. Have tried : - cleaning filters; - turn

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing. The seals appear to be OK to touch and slightly pressing the door inwards does not reduce the leak. What could be the reason and is it worth repairing? The inside looks really good for its age and I am trying to extend its life at least a few years with minimal cost. Please advise.


When one of the sprayer arms develops a leak and sprays water in a downward direction toward the bottom of the door it can leak because it's not made to be sprayed on the seal in that direction. You might get wet but hold the arms still and watch for ... Dishwashers

I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up.

Bosch logixx dishwasher sounds like its running continuously & will go through entire program but does not fill or wash. Filled it with hot water manually to try for air locks & it does drain out. Then continues to attempt to drain even while door is opened. My amateur guess is that its a float switch but can I get at it from the inside or from the back? If thats what it is. Hope you can help,thanks.John

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon. Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent
