I drained the water at the bottom, but the active light keeps flashing, and when I press the start,reset button, then turn it off, it does the same thing when I turn it back on. active light keeps flashing and the wash light is on. It won't even lock the door. How do I fix this because there is no Bosch dealers here to help with the problem.

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?

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

Brand new Miele 2170/2180 dishwasher. First time we try to use it, it stops after a few minutes, the warning beep beeps incessantly, and all of the program lights are flashing. According to the manual, we should turn it off and on and then try again, which we did. The problem persisted. The manual says that this may indicate "a technical fault" and we should contact customer service. Unfortunately, they are closed for a three-day weekend. Any suggestions?

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. I am thinking a power surge might have hit it and maybe knocked something out. Problem is, I need a part from here to take down there and hope someone there can install it. Help! Thanks!
