\012After reading online and studying the parts diagram/list (included with \012paperwork that came with washer) and troubleshooting guide/wiring \012schematic (located under the bottom front kick panel) I determined it \012could only be 5 things, all easy to look at and check when you pull out \012the dishwasher (remove racks first and cut power via the circuit \012breaker).
\012
\012They are heating element, wiring check for burn marks/melting), high \012limit thermostat (mounted on bottom of tub against tub, detects if tub \012overheats), thermistor (screw in mount near motor, detects process temp \012inside dishwasher, and the control panel. Unfortunately, I started \012buying and replacing the parts piecemeal (first high limit thermostat, \012then thermistor, then heating element, even though it tested good). \012Only then did I remove the panel (top 6 screws inside door, no need to \012remove the whole door panel) and check the circuit board. After \012separating the circuit board from its plastic case that covers the back \012of the board, I saw that the back of the board was badly \012burned/blackened about the size of a fifty cent piece around the heater \012circuit relay (this was not visible from the front). Bingo. I should \012have done a comprehensive check first and save $100 on parts that were \012probably good. When ordering online, the circuit board part was \012changed, perhaps to an improved part if the relay burning out is a \012common problem. Good luck.

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy.

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.

Dishwasher Fault Hi, My dishwasher is a Diplomat ADP8322 (which i think is a rebadged whirlpool unit) & has been playing up recently.

I have read online that this flashing relates to what the fault is, but i cannot find out what fault the 11 flashes relate to. The first time this happened i cleaned out all of the filters

When starting my Bauknecht GSFP 5586 dishwasher the program is set for rinsing and the start light flashes two blinks, then again two blink etc. I cannot get the program to change.
