Asko 1585 Dishwasher. Lately the washer has not been completing it's cycle without going into the all lights flashing mode. Usually just opening the door, closing then pushing start gets it going again. Yesterday this happened and it was restarted as described, then it go stuck in what appeared to be a drain mode - all lights flashing, drain motor running. It was in this mode for several hours and could not be stopped by any means. Pushing buttons or opening the door had no effect. Even c

Dishwasher starts and runs to 2nd rinse cycle, when pump starts to pump water out, all lights on front display flash along with key pab lights blinking. you can turn off and restart, but is does the same. Diswasher will also try to start when in off mode. Replaced circuit board and it does to same. Did I get a bad circuit board or is there another problem. Also when I try water service test, I get a Rinse aid fault.

THAT IS THE TIMER, IT IS KNOWN AS THE CCU OR CENTRAL CONTROL UNIT, THAT IS WHAT CONTROLS ALL TIMED FUNCTIONS, SO THAT REALLY IS THE ONLY PART THAT CAN CAUSE THIS PROBLEM ... Frigidaire 24 in.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

Built in model MDB5601AWB- about 3 years old. The touch panel stopped working..no lights would come on when touched. Tried it a couple of days later. Lights came on..finished a cycle. after satying in the wash mode for a few hours. Then lights started flashing on and off. At that point I shut it off at fuse box since I couldn't get lights to stop blinking and haven't trusted to use since

My smeg dishwasher seems to be permanently in wash mode. The light on the menu of settings no longer flashes, but permanently is on, and when I run a load it never stops. I hear the two beeps as if the dishwasher is starting a load so it seems to be cycling through over and over. How can I fix this and get the blinking light back? Thanks


You have a timer relay issue ,probable need a new board for it ,a cheap fix would be to time it and see how long it take to run full cycle and put a regulaer outlet timer on it or a alarm off your stove or what ever,save a couple of bucks ... Smeg STX2 Dishwashers

Maytag MDB 8600 AWB dishwasher Wouldn''t start... just a Heated Dry light. Replaced (already broken) door handle with complete latch assembly. Still, Heated Dry flashes. Tried various suggested combos of 5 or 6 quick button pushes followed by Start. Only get a 50-=countdown that repeats endlessly. Sometimes alternates with the letter L. Once by luck I guess it went into Heavy Wash mode, or at least the diagnostic for it. Completed this fine, then back to the stubborn Heated Dry light.

I'm having a problem with my Miele dishwasher G 879 SCVi I asked for assistance on 2/12/10 and paid $6.00. I have yet to get a response. Please let me know when I will as I need the problem addressed before Christmas Day. The problem again is that all the lights on the diswasher panel are all flashing at the same time when switched on. It may need to be reset somehow, as the power went off, which may have caused the problem. Your urgent assistance is required. Thank you

Smeg df612sdx Until last week I enjoyed several years faultless service from my SMEG Stainless Steel dishwasher, with the exception of needing to replace 2 x spray arms. The unit has now stopped working altogether. Despite powering up several times, I continue to get both the start/pause and selection programs buttons constantly flash (green lights) when the unit is switched on; previously this only occurred once the wash cycle was complete. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. Thank you

Baumatic (BKD62SS or BKD62W .3) Dishwasher will not do a normal load but will run in a strange start up mode I found. When I press the power button, select a cycle, then press start the dishwasher will no longer do anything. 5 seconds after pressing start it will make a light hum noise, a little like heating water. After about a minute the dishwasher won't have done anything. It will then beep 30 times with the third led on the set of four (don't know what it means) will flash a lot. The beeps t

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start. I get lucky once in a while and get it to flash then start. I don't know where else to look. I don't want to start replacing parts one at a time till I get lucky. My model # is KUDIO1F

Hi! We have a GE Profile PDW9280J0SS with electronic control malfunctions. I can't get it out of the ADDED HEAT mode and many of the other button lights won't light up. I've flipped the breaker several times, and this does (usually) reset the controls to "Normal" and "Heat Dry", but when you push "Start" it switches back to the ADDED HEAT mode. When it goes through this cycle the soap dispenser doesn't open so the dishes don't get clean. I can't use the arrows to select different types of w

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

I have a Triton dishwasher. Last cycle, it completed washing then started drying and started beeping and the drying light is flashing. When I finally opened the latch, the beeping stopped, but the drying light is still flashing. The dishes were clean and warm - they air dried the rest of the way. I have not been able to get the drying light to go off. I have turned the breaker off over night, and flipped back on. The dishwasher goes back to flashing washing, and then clicks to drying and th

I have model GU3600XTSY2. Sometimes the pots and pans light flashes for no reason. Sometimes I can push that button and it stops. However, the cycle I select to wash the dishes is constantly interupted by the pots and pans (P&P) light flashing. If I push the P&P button, the wash cycle usually starts where it left off. Sometimes it will go back to the beginning of the cycle and begin all over again and get caught in a loop; start washer, P&P flashes, push P&P, begins cycle from beginning, P&

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t
