Have a Westinghouse 905 dishwasher (guessing approx 5-10yrs old). When I turn it on it's starts is cycle as expected then stops after about 10mins and loses all power (can't turn it on or get any lights to light up for sometime almost like it needs to cool down) at this point the dishwasher is full of water. It is not the pump however as as soon as you can get power to it (sometimes some hours later) and turn it on the first thing it does is pump out the water. Any ideas??


It is likely the thermal relay is tripping. This could be because if you are feeding hot water to inlet the temperature of water is too high, or the dishwasher heater is faulty and overheating the water. Or it is also possible the thermal cutout is s ... Westinghouse Dishwashers

Child Lock light glows without pressing Energy Saver Dry button for four seconds. Cannot turn off by pressing Engery Saver Dry button for four seconds. Turning off main power and turning back on doesn't solve problem. But turning off main power for extented period, over night, and turning back on does fix proble for a very short period but Child Lock does come back on by itself. Is replacing the Console Assembly the only fix? Is there some button sequence to disable Child Lock altogher?

My Maytag dishwasher goes for long stretches when it won't turn on even though I push the proper buttons. The buttons won't light either. It turns on by itself after a couple of weeks of sitting idle. Some of the lights may blink on the start panel while the dishwasher doesn't work, but only on occasion will it fully operate. I have turned off the power and turned it back on, hoping to reset the computer part of the dishwasher. It didn't work.

Just turned the dishwasher on at the wall and tap after it's been sat off for a day. It's done one cycle (eco) and now doesn't seem to be doing anything but flashing. The two lights flashing are the power and eco lights. I have tried turning it off on the console but it turns itself back on and continues flashing. It sounds like it's whirring but I can't hear water. It did have a small leak when we first plumbed it in if that makes any difference?

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

About two weeks ago i noticed that the green lights were flashing and it would not run, I unpluged it for an hour and pluged it back in and the lights went away and it worked ok for the last two weeks. Last night I went to use it and there is no power at all to the washer, I checked the power source to the outlet and there is power there, so I dont know if there is a reset button or some control panel problem?

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

Whirlpool GU2400XTPT Dishwasher is on island of Utila, Honduras. Upon return after several months absence, light was flashing but dishwasher would not turn on, light would not turn off, no other buttons would light up.
