KitchenAid KUDL03IVWHO Machine seems to stop after the initial water fill. There is power to the machine, the door latch circuity is working, all the buttons on the control pad light up. After selecting any of the wash cycles and pressing start, the washing light illuminates and the machine fills normally to the point where the fill valve stops the inflow of water. At this point the machine stalls, it does not start the cleaning process. I can press cancel and the machine drains normally. I e

The Start button does not light up, yet the left side did light up for wash cycles.

Also, over time the left side of the panel stopped lighting up too, so I through the circuit breaker. Can you advise which component it is.

I have a Whirlpool Gu180 ESJQ with a blinking green start light. If I clear this light (hold the start button for 5 second to place it in the end of cycle) then I can get it to start another wash cycle. However, the next wash cycle ends with a blinking start button again and the dishes aren't dry. I had an appliance service man come to check it out and he could not detect any problem! Now I have a leak!

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

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 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


... Haier ESD210 / ESD211 Built-in Dishwasher

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.

I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.

I have a Kenmore 665.1373 Ultra Wash dishwasher that will not work. In the past few weeks, it stopped mid-cycle, the the clean light began to flash. Sears sent out a technician who told us that the latch was not catching. He adjusted it, did something with a computer and the dishwasher worked for a couple of days. This time, it would not start a cycle, it would only show heated dry if you pushed the smart wash button and nothing if you press start. It looks like some of the lights are continuous
