My Frigidaire Dishwasher PLD4375RFC is showing 3 blinking lights at the same time when I flipped the power at the circuit breaker off-on: High Temp Wash, Air Dry on the touch pad and PF on the display. It would not respond to anything that I tried. All blinking lights are off and machine does nothing when I open and close the door. Flipped the circuit breaker off-on again to repeat the sequence. I replaced the controller board, as recommended by the appliance guy since he checked and said ele

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

My Bosch SHE45M built-in dishwasher is suddenly taking an extra-long time to go through its cycles. On Regular wash it will countdown from 117 minutes to 31 minutes. When it hits that time it resets to 87 minutes, then counts down to 1 minute and will not stop. I have to hit the cancel-reset buttons for it to drain. I have tried to do a hard reset by cutting the power at the breaker for 20 minutes or more. I'm interested in potential parts and a description of how to fit it! Thanks in advance.

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.

Frigidaire Dishwasher model # FDB520RHB2 Stopped prematurely last night while on light cycle, now will not respond at all. Noticed water at bottom of tub; tried draining manually through drain tube, removed lower arm, glass trap, and filter, and water remains; tried electronic reset by switching off breaker for several minutes; all to no avail. Electronic controls (cycle/option select) will not respond at all.

Hello, my Hoover D7610 dishwasher has developed a problem, I would appreciate your advice.On starting a wash it appears to be working OK through what I believe to be a rinse cycle but then after about 20 minutes water pours out from the bottom of the door. Manually clicking the timer-programer forward stops the leaking but the machine needs manual advancement except for the last 2 cycles when the timer seems to work OK. After the 1st cycle there is no more water leaking from the machine but all

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.

Touchpad--No Response The touch pad and Countdown timer display will NOT respond except when the Rinse Only pad is pressed. The Countdown timer displays "9" when this pad is pressed. As expected the light and display turn off after 30s. If after 30s or longer the Start/Cancel pad is pressed with the dishwasher door closed, then the Countdown timer displays "2H" and the dishwasher runs through the ?Auto Clean? or ?Heavy Wash? cycle. Not sure which since neither pad is lit. Is the problem the

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB600AWB, serial 18721619CN Quiet Series 300 will light up on the panel except for NORMAL WASH and START. It will not run. All other buttons work. It displayed the number 9 and the RINSE ONLY light came on after we got off the phone with Maytag. Initially nothing would light at all. We changed the fuse (it is NOT on a breaker) and it again didn't light. A few minutes later it did light the above mentioned buttons.

Hi, The machine will not complete a cycle. I think it may have started when the power was turned off at the mains during a cycle. Symptoms are : - You can turn machine on, select a program, press start button, close door, machine appears to begin cycle as normal, water seems to load, then 2 minutes later drains, and 1 minute or so after that the machine beeps 3 times to indicate cycle is finished. Dishwasher tablet door never opens, dishes not cleaned. Have tried : - cleaning filters; - turn

I have a Bosch SHU43C. I have a leak it seems to come out from the door. I removed the front panel. Inspected the seal and all seemed smooth and not damaged in any way. So I decided to run the machine. Waited for a few minutes and the water leaked from both corners at the same time. The water settled in the rubber trough under the door. After a few more minutes the water leaked over the trough and onto the foor. Is there to much water entering the machine? What limits the water entering

SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water.

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
