Frigidaire FDB1502RGC0 dishwasher set for normal wash and heat dry option, both leds are on. dishwasher cycles through wash, but never makes it to dry cycle. After wash, the leds for OPTIONS high temp wash and dry cycle start blinking and do not stop blinking until I hit cancel - which cancels everything. Open unit and water sitting in bottom. Is it a bad operator panel? Water pump did seem to be working during wash cycle. NEED HELP.

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Hi, I have a Kitchenaid KUDI01TJWH0 dishwasher that failed. Any of the front control buttons like Heavy-Normal-RinseOnly or even the HiTemp-EnergySaver .... when you press any of these, the corresponding light for it will blink three times and go off. Normal operation that light for that button will come on and stay on. but none of the lights stay on. If you press start, the 'water heating' light will come on and you will hear the pump run for about 10-15 senconds, and then everything goes off

I noticed water leaking underneath my dishwasher through the floor joists to my basement. It was a small but steady drip through the joists. I turned off the water to the dishwasher and the leak stopped. I looked inside the dishwasher and there is still some standing water inside the dishwasher, but I cannot see anywhere that water is standing under the dishwasher. I am wondering if the leak is at the pump or at the door? But I see no evidence of the seal leaking.


This is probably the line that goes from the water inlet valve on the bottom of the dishwasher up to the valve leading into the dishwasher itself. It is probably a black corrugated rubber line. This is an extremely bad design, but the solution is s ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli
