Answers :

If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses then repeats...

If the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will\015\012stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all\015\012buttons are non responsive).

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all\015\012the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic\015\012cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2\015\012minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If\015\012the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit\015\012(ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could\015\012also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed\015\012(slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door\015\012when you close it).

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?

Brand new Miele 2170/2180 dishwasher. First time we try to use it, it stops after a few minutes, the warning beep beeps incessantly, and all of the program lights are flashing. According to the manual, we should turn it off and on and then try again, which we did. The problem persisted. The manual says that this may indicate "a technical fault" and we should contact customer service. Unfortunately, they are closed for a three-day weekend. Any suggestions?

Hi, I have an ASKO D3250 dishwasher and it keeps stopping during the wash cycle and flashing the heavy pots and pots symbol simultaneously. I tried cleaning the filter basket and found a little plastic part floating in there that has printed on it PP-T20. I don't know where this piece goes or if it's even the culprit. There is a little bit of water not draining from the filter area when I unscrew the outer filter basket, I cleaned it out, but when I re-run it, it still stops and gives the dual f

New dishwasher (Beko 2542F slimline model). Put it on for 1st time last night -when I got up this morning, the cycle which should have taken just over 2 hours hadn't finished. There's soapy water in the bottom of the machine which hasn't drained and the "wash" light is still on. Looks like the dishes are clean but hasn't moved onto the rinse/dry part. Followed instruction in manual to drain it (hold start stop button till lights flash and should drain in 45 sec) but nothing happened.

Hi, I have had a few issues with my ST663 machine. The current problem: the rinse cycle light keeps flashing and it doesn't start when you shut the door. I have tried holding down the right button but it beeps twice and nothing happens? Also tried holding both buttons down for a while and still no success. I got a new electrical board installed not that long ago so not very happy hoping it not a big issue. Do you have any other things that I could maybe do?
