GE PDW 7880 Dishwasher wash time has changed

\015 We typically use the Normal Wash cycle. Last month I noticed the beginning wash time on my PDW 7880 went from 61 min to 74 min. I believe this is part of some sensor that detects dirt and heat and sets the cycle for Heavy, Medium, Light and thus the time. So what is the heavy, med or light all about? What sensor does this? Where can I find more info? How can I get it back to a 61 min cycle it has been for 8 years?\015

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.

Washes for 5 seconds then stops, then starts again intermittently First the heating element started to turn on during the cycle. I never used it before. I changed the setting to unselect Hi Temp Wash but don't remember if it was selected before. The next day the dishwasher filled as usual, washing started for about 4 seconds, then stopped for aroud 10 seconds. The start/stop cycle repeated about 4 times, then all lights went off and nothing more happened.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

Tecnik DW2677 Hi, my dishwasher regularly starts to bleep after starting a wash program. When the door is opened it stops bleeping and the right hand light flashes 7 times repeatedly in sequence. By holding down the start and program change buttons together for a few seconds, it will reset. If you then close the door all is well for a few seconds the pump sound like it expells some water and then it starts to bleep again. The above process can happen several times before it decides to do what it

On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?

I have a GE GSD2000J01WW Dishwasher in a building with low water pressure. The inlet hose is 3/8" OD. The heating coil gets too hot and gives off a bad odor as there is not enough water at start up.

CDA dishwasher is constantly beeping part way through a wash cycle and obviously stops washing at this point. CDA have been out three times in the space of four years and it costs £79 each time. Could have bought a brand new dishwasher by now. The man who repaired mentioned it was the sensor and showed us how to clean it but I don't know anyone else with different makes who have to go through this hassle every two or three washes and this is now making now difference.

The dishwasher cycle starts and gets 20-30 minutes in and then stops giving me the - - - like the door was opened, but it was not. If I use extra heated wash, the cycle stops at 63 minutes left. If I use the regular wash cycle, it stops at 43 minutes left. I have to click the resume button to get the dishwasher to complete the wash cycle. This has been happening evey time I use the dishwasher the last 2 weeks. It is Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2700XTSS! and is only 3.5 years old.

Dishwasher Dilema Hi, Can someone help me solve this problem. Last time I had a problem with my dishwashers I was pretty successful in solving it on this site. I was running a reg wash on the top drawer of my Fisher&Paykel when I suddendly had to stop it in the middle of a wash to add more dishes (something I do all the time) suddenly both screens started beeping with an F1 along with a wrench. It sounds like both motors top and bottom are running full blast. I tried shutting the power for a few

I have a Candy CD650 dishwasher which is not washing properly. Basically, the detergent tablets seem to be getting stuck in the tray. Most times I open the door, the tablet is a pile of mush inside the tray. Other times it is on the bottom of the dishwasher - again a pile of mush! Sometimes, it starts the program & sounds like it's about to start a wash cycle, but then gives up! it gives one short woosh, the stops again. Any ideas how to fix this? I don't have a manual so can't look there.

We recently installed a Kenmore dishwasher, Mfr Model# 13943. We have used the dishwasher approximately six times since Thanksgiving. Each time, after the wash cycle is complete, when we open the door, water has collected on the interior of the door, and water remains standing on some of the washed dishes. Is this normal?
