Answers :

The answer, I believe, is to turn on the dishwasher then hold down the Start button for 3 seconds (minimum) to reset the machine.

Smeg dishwasher ST1145S is not working. After I entered the selected washing program and closed the door, the program faked to start. I am not sure is because of no prolonged disuse or because of I have forgotten to turn off the on/off switch for almost 2 months but I heard there is a beeping sound which supposed to start the program and water intake. But all this is not happening.

I have an Indesit IDL 42 dishwasher. It has entered a state in which it behaves like this: as soon as I turn it on, it starts swishing the water around (it doesn't pump it out) and it does that regardless of whether I press any buttons (I have tried Start, Reset, turning the program knob, no difference at all). When I open it in the middle of this cycle, the water drips, and there is plenty of water (about 1 in) at the bottom. I have checked the filter, it is clean. Can you please help?

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool ADP 931, has stopped working. Possibly because the door was opened during operation, right after it was started. There is some kind of error condition indicated through a blinking Start light, but I don't know how to analyze this. This is a quite simple model with very few buttons to press. When I turn the program knob right to start it, the only thing that happens is that the green Start lights begins to blink continuously. There is also another green light
