Having problems with your Bosch Dishwashers ?

Fixed message and controls do not work

\015 Bosch dishwasher SGV56A13\015\012\015\012The machine shows the message "188" with indicators for both salt and rinse aid being required. The pump also seems to be going even if the door is opened. Salt and Rinse aid both added, filters cleaned including under the small pump cover.\015\012The reset buttons do not clear this message.\015\012Have checked for leaks and there do not appear to be any with no water in the base of the unit. The flood sensor appears to be working OK and I have checked this with a circuit tester.\015\012Are there any other ideas or is it expensive control box that has gone wrong.\015\012Any help much appreciated. Many thanks.\015

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button. Online & repair parts person suggested I replace the: - Tail Cable Ribbon; did not fix problem, then - - Electronic Control Board (interface) which also did not fix it. Should I replace the Electronic Control Board that is actually the part with the buttons

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

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

E6 I have been getting E6 error message over and over again. I have had the machine to pieces, cleaned out the pump and hoses, and still the same problem. Occasionally, the error message changes to E8 or E1, but no matter what, I can't get it to work. Any ideas? When I start the machine, select any program and close the door after a short while the machine does not complete the wash cycle and I get the following message either: E1 or E2 will appear in the control panel Any suggestions Dave M

KUDP01ILBS6 Kitchenaid dishwasher Doesn't work, except flashing lights on front panel. I have the normal light flashing. When I push any other button the cancel light starts blinking as well. I replaced the fuse, the main control board inside and it still doesn't work. Push button panel next fix? This is getting expensive. Could it be something minor? The troubleshooting papers didn't provide much guidance.

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

I have this model dishwasher and last year I spent close to $300.00 having this control panel replaced and as soon as the warranty went p it stopped working again, but there is a green light that blinks next to right side where it says clean. It seems like it is blinking in sequence.. I cannot afford to spend this kind of money to have this fixed again. The co. that has the contract with kitchenaid is horrible and do not double check their work. The only thing tey care about is the bck.


Sorry to hear about the trouble with service. I have put together a sheet to show why the clean light blinks and how to reset the control so you can use it.

After a power surge the dishwasher does not work at all. It just beeps constantly. There are no lights on the touch pad at all. The only thing that stops it from beeping is to remove the 2 pin black and white wires. I replaced the control module. Nothing changes. Do I need to replace the touch pad? What about the 3 digit clock? These parts together cost 145 dollars. I do not want to buy these parts and put them in to find out that did not fix the issue. I also unplugged the

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes.

Fisher & Pykal Dual Drawer Dishwasher. Suspect after young child played with control buttoms on top drawer the power won't come on. Bottom Drawer works perfectly. Have tried turning unit off at power socket but this has not fixed the problem. Is there a sequence of buttons I have to press to re-set or is there in fact a re-set button?

Pld2560lcc1 Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem. I wonder if it's the control "panel"? I took that off and looked at it. Seems okay, but could the problem. I've heard this model has control problems, but I'm not sure if they mean the major control board or the control panel that has the buttons.
