\015\012Not sure why it is still showing up as open problem.
\015\012It would be helpful if you are able to post a comment confirming the fix which Miele suggested.
Possible that the program controller is malfunctioning if you have checked on the mechanical sections of the dishwasher.
\015\012First of all check the movement of the spray arms, make sure the motor is running without any blocks. Also make sure the connections to the motors are intact.
\015\012Since as you mentioned the cycle is struck it is possible that the program controller unit gets a wrong sensors action causing it to stop the cycle,
\015\012Please check the door switches, if there is any erractic operation, if there is fault in the drain pump, water level sensors., inlet valves and finally connections to the program controller.
\015\012check the motor, check the drive belts and links.

The door would not shut. We checked all around and nothing was blocking the door from shutting. We determined the latch on the door was not releasing. I forced the door shut. The touchpad works...lights come on but unit will not operate. The release handle on the front just wiggles back and forth without effect. Lowes says it is one of three parts...none returnable. Any thoughts on what part and whether this is something average consumer can self fix? Thanks.


Hi,\015\012 Lowes is right regarding the parts needed.\015\012\015\012First check the strike part is ok - that's on the body of the machine not the door.\015\012\015\012Unplug the machine.\015\012\015\012Remo ... Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher (PDW9200N00WW). A red light for the smart dispenseer of soap just appeared in the status area of the control panel (to the left of the reset/start button). I could find nothing in the manual addressing that and I recently refilled the soap dispenser. What does the red light mean and why doesn't the red light go off? I only had enough soap to fill it halfway and will get more to completely fill it. Is that the problem--only half full?

My whirlpool gold dishwasher leaves a thick white residue on the dishes. You can actually draw in the residue with your finger. I have cut back on soap, tried different soap, and run vinegar thru it. Nothing helps. My old dishwasher ran fine. Is it because the new one doesn't use as much water? HELP!

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher. Model FDB520RHS0, Serial TH92539147. The drum fills with water but will not drain. I purchased the unit about 2 years ago. It has been used sparingly and mostly on light wash. I removed the basket and could find nothing blocking the drain. Is there a fix? Can I replace the drain pump?

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDV24SE. The "door open" light stays on. I have tested the switch on the door and it appears to be working. There is nothing blocking the door closing, the light just stays on which prevents the dishwasher from working. I am technically astute, just can't solve this problem (yet)..

My Kenmore Elite suddenly stopped filling with water. I pushed start but when I checked it hours later the soap dispenser door had opened, the soap is just lying in a puddle, and nothing is clean but the clean light on the front panel is blinking. I tried again to no avail. Any ideas? I've had the machine since it first came on the market and have had other issues with it--it never drains completely, it makes sounds like someone revving a sports car engine when the drain pump is engaged, my dish

When the dial gets to light wsh we can hear the motor running but nothing is happening, but the soap door opens soon after.

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it was the circuit board and that the blinking light code indicated "too much suds", he replaced the circuit board, but it didn't make any difference. It's an intermittent problem: sometimes the machine completes its cycle OK. I ran it with just vinegar and nothing else in (no detergent, no dishe

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

My daughter's friend bought a Ford Explorer 1997 with approx. 150k on it. After only a few months, it quit working? He replaced the battery, alternator, starter and the whole ignition switch on the steering column. I ran for 2-3 weeks and now he says "Won't do anything". No, lights, no starter noise when trying to crank, no interior lights ... nothing. He took the battery out and tried it in another car... it worked fine. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a electronic control module.

I have a du1145xtpq7 whirlpool dishwasher. Out of the blue it quit working completely. The sensing and washing lights light up, but when it goes to the next step of just washing nothing happens. The soap dispenser door opens and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It wasn't making any irregular noises, unless I'm just used to them since it came with the house. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.
