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 General Electric pdw7880J03ss dishwasher. Tonight, I went to start a load of dishes and the Heated Dry option wouldn't turn off without the lights going to RINSE ONLY.

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time.

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.

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

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. 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.

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Dishwasher DU1100. Odd behaviour during cycle: "Washing" light goes off and sound of washing stops. "Normal" light starts blinking and "soak and scour" light comes on (it was off before). No sound from washer. This persists for at least 10 hours. After that, the lights go off. Is this normal behaviour? It would appear tha the drying cycle did not go.


No it is not normal. It appears that either the membrane switch pad has failed or the control board has failed. ... Whirlpool Dishwashers
