Have a KUDS24SEAL5 superba and no lights come on after pressing any of the buttons. Power to machine is good. Several months ago it would not start properly by pressing 'start'. Would go directly to 'drain' cycle. Then found that if we pressed 'rinse' before 'start' it worked fine. Now, almost a year later...no lights, no one home...any thoughts?

We have a Beko DWD5410W dishwasher that has worked fine...until today - the 'wash' light is on but it is not wasing. I have pressed in the 'start' button and held for 5 seconds to reset and it then springs to life draining out or whatever that noise is, and then if I turn the dial to a setting (even the cold prewash) and press 'start' again it starts whirring away, then after about 10 seconds just stops, with the 'wash' light staying on. Not blocked, I have checked - this likely to be a frozen p

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

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

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

Whirlpool "Quietflight II" - Will not start. The button for "Delay" works, and the button for "Cancel/Drain" works. Pressing this button will drain the unit. No other buttons will work, however, and the unit will not start. Ideas? I've taken the control panel off and looked at it's guts, as far as I can tell everything looked ok (not burnt and no loose wires), although I am no electrician....


Have you tried testing the control panel with an VOM meter? You can press a button and test the wiring that would go to that particular circuit. See if you get a reading on the specific wire when that particular wire is pushed. Does sound like a cont ... Dishwashers

My Kenmore dishwasher model #66515639000 quit working. It was washing dishes just fine one day and then the next the buttons weren't working properly. The pots & pans button was flashing with the cancel button. After searching on your site, I tried to resent the control panel by pressing the normal wash button and the air dry button 3 times then opening and closing the dishwasher. Now the quick rinse button is flashing. Any ideas of what to do now?

My brandt VF300 doesn't drain at the end of wash cycles. If you run the soak programme it drains fine. Some time ago the door was adjusted by an engineer, when he arrived he pressed some buttons which then drained the unit immediately, I have forgotten which buttons! Is there anything I can do to reset the thing, given it drains on soak I am doubtful the drain pump has broken ir is blocked?

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

One day the diswasher was working fine...the next time it turned it on it ran for about 3 min. then shut off and seemed to have no power. I checked the breaker...it was fine. A few days went by and all of a sudden the lights were blinking on the panel. So I pushed the cancel drain button. The water drained out and I then proceeded to load the dishwasher and turn it on again thinking it was just a fluke when it shut off earlier in the week. It did the same thing...ran for about 3 min and then shu

I have a whirlpool model KuDSO1FL and the clean light blinks and won't start after the cycle has been selected and the start button is pressed. I have tried canceling the cycle but it won't work. The dishwasher was working yesterday and today it drained once we cancelled the cycle and then pressed start but that is all that we could get done. I don't know what the problem is.


Your appliance's clean light blinking will require a service call. It could be several things indicating a problem that are not serviceable by the home owner. You can try turning the power off at the breaker box, then turn it back on and see if this ... Dishwashers

Model IGV 659.1 Dishwasher When switched on the 'time display' takes longer than 2 minutes to display the planned wash duration. The display works fine to set a delayed start. After cycling the start delay round to 0, or after RESET (buttons A and C pressed) the unit is then 'nudged' into displaying a time. After, at last, a time is displayed the unit works fine.

My Whirlpool dishwasher will wash fine, but when it drains, it's a slow trickle. I've snaked the line from the sink to the washer, but I can't find a clog. If I try to blow into the drain pipe all I accomplish is almost passing out. I can't blow all the way through it. When I hit the drain button, I hear the solenoid kick on with a rattle, then just a hum. Like I said, I just get a trickle, and the basin never drains completely. It's driving me crazy! Help? Thanks.

I have a Jenn-Air JDB9910AWB dishwasher. The problem I am having is everything seems to work fine until the drain cycle. It sounds like the pump is frozen. After selecting the drain button you can hear a click in the control panel followed by a 1-2 second growl in the pump but it doesn't turn or pump. I am assuming the pump runs in reverse for draining? Is it safe to assume the pump is bad?
