I have an Asko 3251 that is about 4 years old. It has been great up until 2 nights ago when it just keeps running when is has completely cycled. You can open the door and it keeps running. You can push the shut off button and the lights on the controls go out but something keeps running. The only way I can shut it off is by shutting off the circuit breaker. The next morning I can turn the breaker back on and it will be off. Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?

Dishwasher is reading "overfilling", but no water is in unit. Door can open, noise of motor or pump continues and will not shut off even with the Power switch. Only way to stop noise is to turn off the circuit breaker at the electrical panel. What does this sound like to you?


HI- The flood switch has been tripped. It is located under the unit and is not really accessible except by a Tech. The most likely cause it poor draining; if there is a little water left over from each part of the cycle then eventually the water ... Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE monogram zbd5900 that continues to drain, won't shut off. The drain pump just runs. None of the lights on the control panel will come on, tried pressing and holding buttons to clear, nothing. Turned off and on circuit breaker (even left it off overnight) and did not change. Drain is not blocked, pulled the unit out and put water in the bottom and it pumped the water out just fine. any thoughts?


See if you can access the tech sheet, should be on the right side of the underside of the unit after you remove the toe panel, or perhaps in the console. Almost sounds like a stuck key pad but the tech sheet might shed more information on this malf ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Elite Drawer Dishwasher model 465.13329600 Normal Wash and High Temp Wash buttons stay lit, as does green Lock button. The Start/Resume button and the red button on the front of the drawer keep flashing. I've tried key combos suggested above, but nothing seems to work. Even tried shutting it off at the circuit breaker to reset it, and that didn't work either. This ****** was purchased in 2006 or 2007, and hasn't been used very much. WTF?

Hello there from New Orleans!! I really could use some help. I have a Maytag mdb8951aws dishwasher that I purchased in 06 for 795 bucks, plus 180 for a 3 year warranty!! They came out maybe in 07 becaise of some recall, I don't remember what for. I called them because my heater stayed on all day yesterday and melted some dishes. Good thing we caught it last night and shut off the breaker. They said it was not recalled and out of warranty. Go figure! Do you know what this might be and how

Kitchen circut was accidently turned off. Now whirlpool gold disher will not work(unit was not running and the door was not closed all the way when circuit was turned off, All circuit breakers are on) There are no lights on display when door is closed completely, and it appears to have no power. Worked fine prior, what could it be? The unit has not been removed from under the counter yet. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker on the unit? If so where is it located? Other troubleshooting ideas


Hello- Turn power off. Remove kick panel and cover for power wires. Check connections. If these are ok, most likely suspect is a fuse at the control. This is a little harder to get to.

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?

Dishwasher problem Our Asko 1353 dishwasher stops halfway through its's wash cycle. I suspected the thermostat, as it seemed loose in it's holder and not tight against the tub. After I tightened the holder the problem is still the same. Also, the on/off switch (pressure switch?) does not stay in the on position and when I looked it over I found one of the crimp on terminals had melted. Short circuit? Too much resistance from bad thermostat? How do I check the thermostat before I order a new one?


I think your switch may just be bad,but to check the t-stat remove both wires and use a multimeter,set the meter to ohms and connect the two leads to the terminals on the t-stat.with the t-stat to off you should read an (ol) open condition,when you t ... Dishwashers

I have a bosch SHE58C dishwasher. The cycles all work, it fills so the water line is ok, it washes, and it drains so it is not clogged. I cleaned out the sump and it is all clear. However, I think the "brain" or control module is bad. When I try to run a cycle, it does not fill. One other note is that it continues to run when the door is open. Is there a way to reset the "brain"? I've tried killing the circuit breaker


I have a similar problem with my SHE55M15UC model. I bought it last week and I had to push and hold the cancel button before it would start another cycle.

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


The heat element can only get so hot.It's timed so it doesn't exceed a period of on, exposing dishwasher contents to continuous high temps.Watch the timer and take note how long it broils your cookware.Good luck. ... Dishwashers
