SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

My dishwasher has power but does not turn on to any cycle when the control knob is in that position. It was adding water and starting to wash, but not going through the whole cycle and not rinsing and drying. Now it has water stuck in it. I hear sounds underneath like it's trying to go to the next cycle (a clicking noise), but then it doesn't. I put a new timer in it, but it was doing the same thing before that.

Hi. My dishwasher won't let me move the latch into the locked position. When I turn the knob past the start cycle I hear a klunk noise. When looking at the latch it is obvious that there is a gold color piece of metal on top of and in front of the silver latch blocking it from moving sideways. Is this something I can fix on my own, or need a repairman or time for a new washer? The washer will be 5 years old in October. Thank you, KIm Martinez

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens. The time continues to countdown but the machine is silent. When I open and close the door, the click click noise is heard but the machine is silent. I can cancel the cycle and drain the water but none of the washing or rinse cycles will activate but the timer works. The soap door even opens if the timer is left to

We recently purchased a new pump for our frigidaire gld4355rf dishwasher. The old one started making grinding noises. When we moved the dishwasher it had leaked due to a failure of an interior seal. Our new pump is now making the same grinding noise but it is not constant. When my husband adjusted the pump by using his hand when he got into a certain position the noise stops. We keep the screens clean. Is there an issue with the pump in this model?

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...

I have a Bosch SMU2046UC/14 dishwasher that makes some noise but will not start the wash cycle. I found that the noise was from the timer motor by removing the front of the door. The timer continues to run and but only advances until half way through the wash cycle where it stops permanently. Is this a problem with the timer or could something else be causing this problem.


HI. The timer motor mechanism regulates the length of time power is to be routed to each component. If the timer motor does not advance properly, it can result in a wide range of problems. Common symptoms will usually include sticking in a cycle(fail ... Bosch 24 in. SMU40 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Bosch SHU43C06UC/14. A few weeks ago it was making a loud terrible noise during the entire cycle. We figured it was on its last leg but it was still cleaning the dishes properly. Then with no explaination the noise stopped and the machine sounded normal again. Today when I started the machine it makes the normal sound when starting but it acts like it is stuck at the beginning and does not fill with water. The timer also does not count down.

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

When I depress the start button, the timer is clicking to engage and begin the cycle, however, the dishwasher does not start. Other times, there is no noise whatsover when I press the start button and neither does the dishwasher start. If I don't use it for say 2-3 weeks and try again, it starts working for a period of a few months, but then the same thing happens again down the track. This has occurred about 4 times.

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

Have spent $300 in the last week on Haier HDW101ss repairs. It still isnt fixed. The repair guy 'thinks' it is now a faulty timer. The unit hangs at certain points in the cycle. At these points the timer (ticking) noise stops but the machine carries on washing. It will hang at this point indefinately. I have taken the timer out, and it looks brand new (the unit is only 4yr old). Any advise, does this sound like a timer issue, or could it be something else? Where can i source a cheap (2nd hand)

The unit has a "food chopper" inside the pump sump. it is to chop up "food" items and not bones, seeds or other items. you can keep running the unit and see if after 2 or 3 loads the noise goes away. ie: the item get chopped up small enough to go ou ... Dishwashers

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder. Can definetly hear a clicking as something spins around to drain the unit. I have removed the washing armature and plastic skirt around bottom and felt underneath the skirted area, but don't feel anything caught or jammed. Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have
