\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't\015\012complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the\015\012heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the\015\012dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in\015\012one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault.\015\012Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many\015\012dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle\015\012calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with\015\012water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens\015\012next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit\015\012continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until\015\012the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher\015\012and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating\015\012element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never\015\012continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle\015\012problem" is fixed too. Please do accept the solution if\015\012the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Defy dishmaid dishwasher does not start wash cycle. Several attempts to reset dishwasher has been done. Machine has been unplugged for several days and switched on again and still does not work. The start/stop switch have been kept in for about 5 - 10 seconds to reset. When the machine is set to do washing, the water enters the machine and wash light shows green and machine remains like that with water inside the machine. The start/stop button is again pressed for 5 -10 seconds to drain the wate

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Kenwood Elite Dishwasher Mod#665.13779 K600 "Normal Wash " light blinks continuously with NO washer action. No other wash modes light up when pressed. Washer does not do anything. However, a couple of times I got it to make a noise as if it was draining, but then nothing happens. Push "Cancel" and it blinks in unison with Normal Wash light. Open door and close it, "Cancel" light goes out and Normal Wash light continues to blink. Have tried various combination of buttons to try to "Reset"

Have a 665-16293201 dishwasher with electronic controls and smart sensor. Approx 10 years old in great shape. it just started having a problem - it takes a long time for the sensing to be completed at the start of a wash and then the washer will start and display a time - like 92 minutes - turn the sensing light off, then start to wash and count down. when it gets to 86 minutes, it starts to sense again and will continue washing while displaying 86 and with the sensing light on. It will keep

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

PROBLEM! Hello, When we turn on the dishwasher and set it to any setting it beeps once, appears to work, then beeps again, and the first light flashes. Then the inside noises stop and the light continues to flash until it is turned off. We have cleaned the filter, and added salt, but this has not affected it at all. Please help! Thank you.

Our Whirlpool ADP 6515 has a delay button. When the button is pressed and activated for a 3 hour, 6 hour or 9 hour delay, if we change our minds and want to wash immediately, we cannot disable the button!! How can we deactivate the delay setting to wash immediately? We have pushed the delay button over and over to turn it off but it will remain on the 9 hour delay setting. We are very frustrated. Please help.

Hi. I have a Siemens SE65E331GB Built in Dishwasher with an aquastop system. The problem is that it seems to be stuck at the end of a cycle. The pump is constantly running when stitched on. I won't top after a reset and it continues to run even if you open the door. The water supply light also comes on indicating that there is no water getting to the machine. I have tried resetting the aquastop as per the advice in other threads. This has helped in that the water supply light now stays

Hi, I have a Siemens SE24A230GB/17 dishwasher and it is not completing the wash cycle (any selected). It appears to be stuck on the 'wash' part of the program. I have done the reset actions as advised in the User Manual and tried another program, without success. I have found that the possible causes could be the timer or thermostat. The estimated time remaining display counts down, but the program does not complete the wash and move onto rinse and dry. Any help or advice you can provide would

Water softener Salt residue remains on the dishes. The water softener is going throught salt like crazy. I fill the salt and make sure that the light is off before I start the cylce. Within the first 20-45 mins the salt light comes on again and the dishes will not wash properly. We have come to the conclusion that the salt is being distributed to quicky but cannot figure out why the light keeps coming on. The switch inside the cap for the salt is set a the min.

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher with electronic controls. When I set the controls press the start pad and close the door it will not start. The light on the start pad just continues to blink. This happened about six months ago and the Sears serviceman pressed two of the control pads simultaneously and this reset the controls. Everything worked after he did this. What are the two control pads that you press to reset the controls?


This is difficult to find out. Try different combinations. Otherwise get the information from the SEARS serviceman. ... Dishwashers
