Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

I have a kitchenaid quiet scrub dishwasher that fails to function. When you close the door and press the start button the clean and cancel lights come on and the pump starts up. No water enters the machine and the pump keeps running.


Answers :

Ther is a small impulse pump on the bottom of the unit. the diaphram gets old and it stops functioning but sometime then it leaks . so if it's not leaking , turn off water suppl and remove the fitting for incoming water some have screens right here and they get plugged with hard water debris . ha dont be silly all water is dirty.you can get new screens at h/d and lowes, hope your solenoid still works, check it by putting a finger on it when the cycle should start it should humm or vibrate. diaphram is not replaceable. need to buy new valve

My bosch excel dishwasher has the following fault: start the cycle, water starts to fill but then check water light comes on and it then starts to empty again. Pump then keeps going. I have checked the hose and even swapped it round with my washing machine one but this makes no difference. I have cleaned all the filters and taken off the cover to check the 'propeller' as sugested in the instruction manual. But no joy - check water light still illuminated and willnot continue with cycle. - Help!!

Our Bosch dishwasher #SHU9922UC (FD8007) will not turn on properly. Only its drain pump starts -- and keeps running -- when it's powered on and the door's closed. Pressing the two "drain cancel" buttons for more than 3 seconds doesn't help. Neither does cutting off power, then turning it back on in the hopes of resetting the machine's 'computer'. No water inflow occurs. Help?


I had a similar issue after I replaced a bad drain pump, seems the logic got hung up.. I poured in a pitcher of water, closed the door, it drained and was then ok - worth a try. If not, you may have a bad water level switch. ... Dishwashers

Flashing light The 3rd light to the right keeps flashing. I cannot cancel the programme or move the indicator light to any other setting. When I close the door the machine does not come on, just the light keeps flashing. Any idea what the problem can be? There is no water in the machine and doesnt appear to be any blockage in the outlet pipe.

Hi...my dishwasher 'clean' light continues to blink. I can hit cancel and it sounds like the cancel cycle is running. After that the light keeps blinking and I can not start the machine. If you hit start the light goes on, then stops, and the clean light flashes again. Any clues? Thanks!

Hi. I have a Siemens SE65E331GB Built in Dishwasher with an aquastop system. The problem is that it seems to be stuck at the end of a cycle. The pump is constantly running when stitched on. I won't top after a reset and it continues to run even if you open the door. The water supply light also comes on indicating that there is no water getting to the machine. I have tried resetting the aquastop as per the advice in other threads. This has helped in that the water supply light now stays

Have a Miele G1220SC dishwasher. It recently developed a strange problem: when switching it on ALL program lights come on and the machine starts taking water. after a while it stops taking water and starts to pump water, all the time all program indicators remain on. if you leave it on a while ( about 4 or 5 minutes) it is impossible to switch off the machine with the main switch, all you can do to stop it is unplug it. anyone experienced something like this and have any idea what part is malfun

I have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher which runs the drain pump constantly even with the door open and despite there being now water in the machine at the cycle wont start. I have checked the warer amtrix and the ffed hose to the sump for blockages. The float switch operates OK but when the water drains down the float drops and the water is pumped in, then the float rises and water leaks out and the drain pump kicks in again and no more ater will come in unless you push the float down.

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

My 1yo slimline hotpoint dishwasher LST216 has developed a fault when trying to run the 'normal wash': washing stops after a couple of mins, the lights start flashing and the alarm comes on as soon as the water is being drawn into the machine. When I open the door I can hear a whirling/grating motor noise coming from the bottom of the machine. I have cleaned all filters and have run other programmes to check overall functionality and they all work as expected most of the time. I cannot unders

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

My Bosh Model# SHE4AM02UC/01 Is not cycling. Started with the soap dispenser not opening, progressed to the drain pump not staying on. When you turn it on, the pump runs for 2 seconds. water solenoid opens for another two seconds, and then the "clean" light comes on. If I go to quick wash, or to pot scrubber it might do a regular cycle. I did pull the pump to remove a piece of glass before this all started, but can't imagine that would be the cause.

Asko dw20 pump keeps running even with door open and turned off... The machine got to the final cycle then the pump just keeps running and the glass icon (L2) keeps flashing. All the water is not evacuated from the washer. When I power off from the front the drain pump still runs (and water is still not draining). When I power cycle from the mains (waiting 10 seconds) the pump engages again and the water level drops a bit and then stops draining. I have done this until all the water is empty an

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both. Checked the hose under the sink. We

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

Hi there My dishwasher (Miele G975 PLUS) drain light keeps coming on and the water won't drain. I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?


Hi.This is not a PC, when logic board is fried the machine does not start at all rather than doing weird thing.The logic board is not fried, in the worst case the salt sensor is jammed. Try first pouring a couple of litres of hot wa ... Miele 24 in. Novotronic G641 Plus Built-In Dishwasher
