Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start. The 'start' button was acting up and would have to press a few times before light would flash and then the dishwasher would work. Now everything lights up but start button does not work. Opene

I have a Whirlpool model DU1055KJVQ1, Type 575-0 under-counter dishwasher which is less than 2 years old. In the last couple of weeks, it wouldn't start intermittently, and I would need to hit cancel on the keypad, and then restart. Now that doesn't work. When I try and start the dishwasher, it doesn't work. I press Normal for the cycle, heated dry for the Option, and then hit Start. The buttons light up for 20 seconds or so, nothing happens and then they go out. Any ideas?

Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start (lights cycle but no water/motor) Model Number: FDB1050REB2 Brand: Frigidaire Our dishwasher is 1.25 years old and already not working (grrr!). When it is turned on, the lights cycle through like a normal wash cycle, but the motor isn't engaged nor does any water cycle through. This happened about a month ago and I took everything apart to make sure all of the connections were secure and it started working again...not this time. Any ideas?

Hi, I have a Dishlex dishwasher. It's an electronic model, from about 92 I think. The model I thought was B8557WW. It is very hard to see the model number because it's almost washed away. Is the model number maybe located anywhere else on the machine? Could there be a manual or circuit diagram hidden somewhere on (in) the machine? The fault is that it wont start. It reacts to some of the front buttons, and beeps, but not all, and not the start button. Before it stopped working completely, some o

I have a whirlpool model KuDSO1FL and the clean light blinks and won't start after the cycle has been selected and the start button is pressed. I have tried canceling the cycle but it won't work. The dishwasher was working yesterday and today it drained once we cancelled the cycle and then pressed start but that is all that we could get done. I don't know what the problem is.


Your appliance's clean light blinking will require a service call. It could be several things indicating a problem that are not serviceable by the home owner. You can try turning the power off at the breaker box, then turn it back on and see if this ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers

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.

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher, model 665.16039. Over the past month (we were on vacation 8 days over Xmas, but I assume it would have happened then, too) it has required rebooting using the Normal Wash - Heated Dry reset about 4-6 times. It would then do a couple loads okay, then need resetting. Now, however, it's refusing to reset to a point at which the Start buton will work. When I reset it, it flashes all the lights (incl. Start), and it fills, sprays, empties, etc. just as though it works

We have a Kenmore Ultra wash dishwasher Model # 665.13733K601 and serial # FW18136133. came home from work yesterday and the pots and pan button and the normal wash buttons were flashing alternately.

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.

My Frigidaire dishwasher won't start. I just moved into a condo and the dishwasher worked during inspection but now it's not...wondering if it's something I just don't know about.

The control panel isn't locked either- I saw some forums about that. The water supply is on...help!

My deceased parents have a GE dishwasher (don't know the model number - can't find it on the machine and can't find the paper work) that stops working shortly you start it and displays a message on the front panel that says "Blocked wash arm - check for wash arm obstruction - restart". We restart it and get the same message shorty thereafter. This happens when the washer is COMPLETELY EMPTY, even when we remove the bottom rack. It first started after several month of inactivity.

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
