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 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

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks


These dishwashers have a safety feature. The door has to be closed within 3 seconds of pushing the start button. If the cycle is interrupted at all by opening the door or pushing something while started you will have to push the start button to resum ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

Hi - I have the Miele G 2470 dishwasher. It starts, and I have it set at "2 in 1 Tab" and on "Normal". I close the door and the machine makes a sound like it is starting, but then after abiut 30 seconds it starts alarm beeping and doesn't run. When you open the door it shows the light is now on next to "Intake/Drain". To stop the beeping I have to press the "off" circle. This sequence happens each time. what do you recommend to get it to work? thank you very much. Lori.

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 Kitchenaid dishwasher Model KUDPO1FLSS3 stopped working. The electrical works, as we checked the breaker and the little lights on the panel turn on, but the machine will not start. We're thinking there might be a problem with the connection where the door closes. We've checked out everything we can think of, but no luck. The plastic panel is worn away in places, so some of the buttons are exposed-can't imagine that matters, though. Help!

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDV24SE. The "door open" light stays on. I have tested the switch on the door and it appears to be working.

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning. When I open the door, the "Clean" light and the PowerScrub button are red. When i close the door, the light go off but nothing happens. One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start. The door may have been dropped a couple of time before the spring system was repaired, but it did not hit the floor, just a hard sudden stop. All of the cycle setting lights come on when they are pressed except for the start button. Just before the start button stopped working the dishwasher started by itself or started several hours after cycle selection had b

Our Kitchenaid dishwasher model # KUDP021R will not start. We close door, select wash and press start. The control lock light at the top which is lit flashes a few times and then stays lit. Dishwasher remains silent. An aside which may be helpful is that the door has always seemed to be not quite straight...as though it had to warp a tiny bit to close and lock.


The problem you have already identified could be the door switch is not closing when you shut the door. Please confirm your dishwasher is KUDP02I (i and not 1).\015\012\015\012One way to check is find out the door switch on the door panel ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
