Zanussi zdt6053 in built dishwasher not starting. When pressing the control panel on/off button the 65 deg normal wash light comes on. When pressing the program selection button nothing happens. When closing the door the machine does not start up. Is there a fault in the control panel circuit board? Would water pressure prevent the machine from operating?

I pressed the POWER button to turn on the dishwasher. I pressed the SELECT button, hit HEATED DRY button and the LIGHT WASH buttons. I then hit the START/PAUSE button to start the cycle. All lights came on as normal & I heard the machine trying to **** up water like it normally does. Within 5 minutes or so, the machine started to BEEP & BEEP every minute. When I came to the check why the beeping noise was on, I saw that all the WASH PROGRAM lights were all blinking. I hit the START/PAUSE

My Baumatic BWD 1631 will not start unless I close the door, hold down the programme button, press the on/off button, release the programme button, at which point all 5 programme indicators light up. If I then press the programme button again, the lights then all intermittantly cycle. However during this period, the bleeper sounds, the water inlet valve works, the circulating pump works and finally the discharge pump works and the machine empties. However I am unable to stop or start the machine

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme button nothing happens - the lights don't change.

It was playing up before this in that sometimes the programme would not start when a button was pressed but I just closed the door mor

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

Initially It started washing, completed the entire cycle, then while drying began re-washing the load. Then it would start washing nothing, without any buttons pressed. Then it woldn't allow any buttons to be pressed for any cycle.Then the lights would flash, but nothing would progress through the cycle.

Our dishwasher beeps twice when the start button is pressed but then doesn't do anything and there is no other noise from anywhere (eg, motor/pump). There are no error codes displayed and the display appears normal (ie lights up and shows time for program completion etc). When the problem first occurred the machine was full of dirty water. We have turned the dishwasher off and on at the wall, checked/cleaned all filters, drained the dirty water and still nothing happens (it doesn't even fill

The lights turn on for Normal and Heavy, but nothing happens when I press Start. I played with the breakers a couple times, to try to "reset" the machine, but it didn't do any good.

Have a KUDS24SEAL5 superba and no lights come on after pressing any of the buttons. Power to machine is good. Several months ago it would not start properly by pressing 'start'. Would go directly to 'drain' cycle. Then found that if we pressed 'rinse' before 'start' it worked fine. Now, almost a year later...no lights, no one home...any thoughts?

I have a KitchenAid KUD1021RWHO dishwasher that will not turn on when I hit the start button. The LED lights work when I press cycle selection ie. "normal" but when I press the start button nothing happens. I have waited for a couple of hours and then it will start. However during the last week it has happened more frequently and now it has not worked for the last (2) days. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Thank you for your help!!!

I wanted to heat up a cup of tea. As I've done many times before, I pressed Time, then 1:20 seconds, then I pressed Auto Start, but fear I may have touched the button below it, which says Start in small red print. The oven wouldn't switch on, and I noticed a small green u-shaped mark had appeared at the base of the 1: I pressed Clear, and repeated my movements, making sure this time that I pressed Auto Start. Again, nothing happened. I've cleared the touchpad several times, but the oven won't
