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. There is nothing blocking the door closing, the light just stays on which prevents the dishwasher from working. I am technically astute, just can't solve this problem (yet)..

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

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

Miele Optima G 2430 - The dishwasher will pump water in for 5 seconds with the Intake/Drain light flashing 5 times. Then the light stays on for 5 seconds and it does nothing. This process is repeated for about 10 minutes untill the washer is filled to the just below the door with water. Then the washer starts running for about 1 1/2 minutes and drains the water. Then it all starts over. If I let it do this for a hour - The display reads F12 with the Intake/Drain light flashing.

The clean light is the only light that will stay on. the other lights will go on, but they eventually go off without starting the cycle. Is this the thermal fuse???
