Kenmore 665.15912001 DISHWASHER RUNS BUT DISPLAYS ERROR MESSAGE Instead of displaying the number of minutes in the cycle when I push the cycle selector button and then the start button, it starts as soon as I push the cycle selector, without waiting for me to push start; meanwhile, it displays "_J" instead of the number of minutes in the cycle. It washes the dishes but not well, lots of food debris. Some people in this forum have described running a diagnostic on this machine; how do you do that

I've tried to use this new machine 3 times. Each time it was never turned off until I pushed the cancel/drain button. Once I let it run for 2 hours before turning it off. This evening I tried the rinse only button and when I checked on it,it had switched to the normal wash cycle. Then I pushed the cancel/drain button.


If this is a new machine and it's under warranty, Have a technician come out and repair it as soon as possible. then fully test it's operation after he is done fixing it . It sounds to me as though it ... Whirlpool Gold GU2275XTV Builtin Dishwasher

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher model #FGBD2431KBO. The problem is when I push the start button it fills with water and then will not start wash cycle. If you push the start button again to stop and again to start then the washer will empty the water. So it seems that the motor runs only in one direction.

GE Dish Washer GSD 2800 DO3 runs a partial cycle...(even empty) and then beep and gives a message on control panel "washer arm blocked". Even ran without dish rack in washer still got the message. Push reset button and washer starts back runs a couple minutes and then stops and then beep and gives the same message on control panel "washer arm blocked" again. There is "NOTHING BLOCKING" the washer arm!


The rotating arm has a magnet in it to let the controls know if it is turning. Yours is not turning so \012\012\012\012check the jets for blockages... you might have to remove the arm to clean them properly ... Dishwashers

The fuse in the plug keeps blowing. Initially it would run for a while - sometimes 3 or 4 cycles - before blowing. It now blows the fuse the second that I plug in to the socket, even with the on/off button on the front of the dishwasher set to off.I'm keen to take it apart, but it's full of water as it blew mid-cycle. Is there a clever way to empty the machine without the power being on, or do I need bits of hose and sponges?A schematic blow up would also be extremely helpful.


Lower the outlet hose into a washing up bowl, it should then Drain. Check the heater to see if it is earthing you get to it by removing the right hand side panel. ... Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

Any thoughts?

Whirlpool DWF417W, Type 12155 A couple of weeks ago the machine failed to empty, leaving dirty water in the machine at the end of the cycle. Start a new program it emptied & all was then well. A couple of days ago we started a wash cycle as normal, shut the door, the pump normally runs for about 10 seconds then the cycle starts. However the pump just runs continuously?? After looking here there seemed to be a few links to the subject of water being in the base & the anti flood switch being ac

I have a Maytag dishwasher quiet series 300. It is one year old. The problem I am having is this. After running a cleaning cycle, there is water in the bottom of the machine. If I push the start button, then cancel a few seconds later it will drain. Any idea? Thanks, Terry Roose


Hi Terry, Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. \015\012 A few things can cause this. Most of the time it is drain related with the Air-Gap being the culprit that is restricting drain flow. If the dishwasher drain has a restriction ... Maytag Dishwashers

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?

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time. Today I'm back to a machine that will n


Your control panel is faulty and will have to be replaced. This is the main brain of the machine. Normally when a cycle doesn't start the timer is bad, but when your control panel doesn't do anything, then it is faulty. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher stuck on rinse cycle. Have three yo son who plays with buttons, but I've been unable to get washer to finish (rinse went for three hrs prior to me realizing it was still running). Tried the front panel buttons w/o effect other than able to turn unit off, but it resumes in rinse cycle. Turned power off to machine from circuit breaker ( w/ machine off) then restarted and still in rinse cycle. How do I reset?

Kenmore dishwasher 16934 will not start up for me. I can push any button to set the cycle(pots & pans, china gentle, quick rinse, normal wash) and the time shows up in the display, but when I push the start, two red horizontal lines appear in the time remaining display. Cannot get the machine to start anything. All cycle buttons give me some kind of time remaining display but as I said, it ends up with 2 red lines. Thanks in advance. Mark

Hi, I have a zanussi DE6744S. I can select any program and water fills as normal. The problem is that the cycle runs and runs and dosn't stop unless I turn the machine off. When I restart the machine it just carries on until I press the current program button in for a about 10 seconds and the program stops. On the odd occasion it ends normally on the economy cycle (30 mins) but its pot luck. It does wash as normal but dosn't seem to get past constant washing (no drying) . Hope you can help, S

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

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
