Having problems with your Equator 20 in. PLS600 Free-Standing Dishwasher ?

I have an equator PLS600 and I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried the WikiFix to help a stalled dishwasher, by adding water and vinegar. When I put on the wash cycle it does not run. Even with the short rinse cycle, the sprayer will not move, and the machine will just run through the cycle until it starts to drain. Please help!!! Thanks =)


Answers :

Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin. If spray arm does spin freely, remove spray arm clip, spray arm and the post assy (the thing the spray arm attaches to). Try your WikiFix again. This time add baking soda to the hole the post assy came from. Top it off with white vinegar. Leave it overnight. In the morning, stick your finger down the hole where the spray arm assy sat. You should feel a plastic thing. This is a propeller attached to the recirculation pump. You need to free it up. Get that thing moving with your pinky or a chopstick or whatever. Try the machine without the spray arm. You should get water blasting up from the hole. Reassemble the spray arm.

Dishwasher is 2 years old. Top shelf dishes not getting clean even on on heavy duty and sani rinse cycle. All arms move freely,tried the 2 cups white vinegar in an open container and run cycle. I thought that helped but a few days later we are back to the same thing. No debris around drains. Tried loading differently. I have called for a repair person,but is there anything else I could check on my own?

My dishwasher is SHU 3000 series and over 10 years old. The problem is SUDS that will not go away. I have used on-line methods such as vinegar. I have gone through 6 bottles of "Dishwasher Magic" and have put it through cycles not using soap over 30 times and am still getting suds even at the end of the rinse cycle. I have called a local repairman and he says he cannot help me..that I should continue running the dishwasher time after time till the water is w/o suds. Any help for me?

During wash cycle it gets stuck and won't move past the wash cycle. On a regular wash it is at 28minutes and when it is on a fast wash it is at 25 minutes. If I stop it and turn on the rinse cycle it will run through the 12minute rinse cycle with no problems. It is only the top dishwasher that does this, the bottom one is running just fine.

Excessive foaming when using Rinse Only Cycle in Kitchenaid Dishwasher. I've had this dishwasher only 3 weeks. There is no detergent in the dispenser. Rinse Cycle should be only water; no soap. Rinse Aid should not be dispensing either. What could be the problem? Normal wash cycle leaves residue on glassware. That is why I run the Rinse Only Cycle.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

Hello I hope someone can help me. I have a Siemens Hydrosensor Dishwasher that when I start it up in runs for a while and shuts off. I need to open and close the door several times then it may run for a short while, 15 seconds to a couple minutes and then shut down again. Finally, it will run through the rest of the cycle.

Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle. Then I have to rewash with no soap to simulate the rinse and again manually drain (cancel) the cycle. This was a $650 dishwasher.

Hello, I've got a Bosch dishwasher that is acting really funny. I've had it for 4 years. It's 630 SHE44C06UC model. It powers and I hear it run, but the cycle ends w/ 1 but it runs forever...and doesn't rinse or drain. Cancel drain works, but there are spots. I have rinse agent, it fills, drains, etc. I'm wondering if someone knows how I could reset it before calling a repair man? It doesn't seem to dry either? Any help? Thanks, Steph

We have a n eight year old fully integrated asko dishwasher. Only the rinse cycle works, so I rinse many times - last rinse with detergent and then run the short program which does not wash, but will dry the dishes. The circuit board was replaced once before under warranty($500.00 labour) and I suspect that we may have to do the same again. Can we find this on the internet and do it ourselves; we have good electrical knowledge. Thank you in advance.

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher. Lately it has been sounding like the top sprayer is working only sporadically. The cycle begins & it sounds like it doesnt begin spraying until halfway thru the cycle. I open it & check it & see it's not turning. I've cleaned out the holes the best I can. It does this with the rinse cycle also. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers
