Bosch SHU4302 WITH REPAIRED PC BOARD has been working fine for several years now seems stuck in rinse/drain mode and is not quite pumping cabinet dry. I have removed the screens and located the small impeller at bottom below cover. The impeller rotates as though it has multiple spring loaded stop positions. When I turn on the unit and open the door water is trickling from the sprayer arms at low pressure. It seems stuck in rinse mode and will not advance cycles or reset when shut off.

When dishwasher is turned on to the cycle mode - it fills with water - heater heats water to the proper temp - pump starts - washer goes through it's complete cycle - even pumping out the wash water and the drying cycle,then shuts down. the problem is that it does not circulate the wash water thru. the spray heads-even though the circ,pump is running.Even though the unit is 8 yrs.old and hasn't run for 6 yrs,my wife&i do our dishes by hand. our unit is a GU1200XTKB0 Serial# FL4617501

The dish washer ran its full cycle but won't shut off. the little pump motor in the very bottom keeps cycling water in the bottom. it won't shut off when you open the door, it won't shut off when you push the power button and the front switches won't respond. the little light on the front of the dish washer is blinking and it has never done that befor normally the lites are always on solid.....


The drain stuck cycle ( I presume you mean drain pump running constantly ) are directly related with overfill scenarios for Asko dishwashers of this ... Asko D3122XL 24 in Builtin Dishwasher

Asko Dishwasher starts the cycle by pumping out as it should. But does not stop pumping nor advances. If I click it forward manually it starts to fill and then before overfilling goes into pump out without washing then just repeats this. Pressure switch tubes and air trap chambers are clean and no leak to trip spill switch. I'm guessing It is either the timer or faulty pressure switch any clues ???

Troy Built pressure washer starts up fine and idles nice. Start spraying and everything is fine for about 30sec to 1min then the engine just shuts off.

I have the pump off the machine, what should I do? Model number 020208 Troy Built. Rev # 01

Cycle interupted until pressure applied to door, near control panel. Fault is intermittent. Sometimes I need to lean a chair against it to keep it going. Door clicks shut nicely and does not leak.

Got a Indesit Di620 Dishwasher that trips RCD after power up & immediateley as you shut door.Fault is definately related to pressure switch, disconnected pipe to switch and then able to start cycle, without tripping, small amount of water out of pipe,but cycle only lasts for a few minutes, then stops. ( blowing into pressure switch trips rcd )How can i test switch, or is it a water level problem ??Any help would be good, thanks S.C

I have a hiDefinition, Top button(Hidden when you close the door) with a stainless steel front cover. Drain pump continuously runs and won't shut off. This will not allow the washer to go into the next cycle or into the dry cycle. This I guess would be the shut down mode allowing the built up heat to dry off the plates and glasses.

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

Residential Well Pressure Tank. The tank loses pressure over the course of a year or two and the cycle starts to shorten up. What is the appropriate pressure range for the tank. Should I shut off the water and drain down to get a "true" static pressure when I add air? Sorry about the category. No plumbing category listed.


Yes you drain it down to check the pressure and leave it down till you get it up to around 40 pounds for most applications. ... Dishwashers

When I press the start button, Bosch dishwasher (model SHY56A 05UC) just keep running the motor pumping the water out of dishwasher, irrespective of: 1) the wash cycle it is on, 2) whether the door is closed or open, 3) whether I cancel drain cycle, as told by Bosch Cust Svc in following steps: - "Cancel Drain" by pressing 'Quick Wash' and 'Regular Wash' buttons together for a minute until it shows 0* - Shut power off for a minute and wait for a minute - Restart on Quick Cycle.

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working. I ran one more cycle to see if things went back to normal, however now our pump won't shut off. We have to unplug the machine just to get the pump to stop. We had a repair technician come to look at the dishwasher and he says that it is a problem with the control panel/computer system. Something tells me it is a merely a loose wire and that w

Hi there, Ok, i think i'm getting close to solving this problem. I have an LG dishwasher- Model # LDS 5811ST. I have stripped it down and clean all hoses etc. It is running fine through all the cycles. The only problem is that it has no water pressure. In other words water is pumping into the dishwasher but it's like there is no pressure behind it to force it through the holes in the propellers so it's just kind of dumping water out as opposed to having any forced pressure. Hope this makes se

It appears to finish it's cycle, as far as the dishes are clean - however there is clean water that has pooled on the bottom. you can hear the water fresh coming in - the pump comes on for a few minutes, drains some of the water and shuts off - the pump comes on again - drains some of the water and turns off. I turned the water going into the dishwater off - the pump ran for a few minutes - drained some of the water and then just sits there with the red power light on - there is still the same

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?
