We have a Whirlpool GU980 Series Dishwasher. All the lights work. No matter what setting I use, it fills up, and then nothing happens. The "washing" light will be turned on, but nothing happens. I try to drain the machine, it will make a sound like it's going to begin a process, then it just stops. Do these things just "die" after some time? This machine is 7 years old.


Sounds like something is caught in the pump impeller. you will need to take the pump apart inside the tub. ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Washes for 5 seconds then stops, then starts again intermittently First the heating element started to turn on during the cycle. I never used it before. I changed the setting to unselect Hi Temp Wash but don't remember if it was selected before. The next day the dishwasher filled as usual, washing started for about 4 seconds, then stopped for aroud 10 seconds. The start/stop cycle repeated about 4 times, then all lights went off and nothing more happened.

How can the Sani Wash cycle work fine and no Intake Drain light when all other cycles trigger the Intake Drain light and won't continue to wash? Thanks,Karen

Stops mid-cycle I have a MDB7100AWB that has been working fine for the last 7 years. Now all of the sudden it will not complete a wash cycle in any mode (including auto clean). It consistantly stops at 85 on normal wash & at 65 on light wash and then clicks/buzzes about every 3 seconds, like it wants to continue - but never does. Any clues as to what to try? Is 7 years all I can expect to get?

We have a Beko DWD5410W dishwasher that has worked fine...until today - the 'wash' light is on but it is not wasing. I have pressed in the 'start' button and held for 5 seconds to reset and it then springs to life draining out or whatever that noise is, and then if I turn the dial to a setting (even the cold prewash) and press 'start' again it starts whirring away, then after about 10 seconds just stops, with the 'wash' light staying on.

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

I have a LG intello dishwasher 2050SH Turned it on yesterday and did a rinse. This was the first use for 4 months in our second home. It was very cold. The rinse stopped some way through and an error message displayed (cannot remember). Tried to run again and now the dsiplay is locked. It turns on with usual sound, but none of the buttons work. They make a noise when pressed but nothing on the dsipay changes. I suspect that the outlet was frozen and that I should not have tried again - too im

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up. Also I have left it for a number of hours after I have tried to start it and still nothing happens. I would appreciat

A feew weeks ago Smeg STA6047 dishwasher stopped in the beginning of the programme after approx. ten minutes, and gave the error code E9. There had been clearly water in the machine, but maybe not enough and the detergent box was not open. However, when technician came by two weeks after, the dishwasher worked and he said it was in order. But only after being used only once, the same problem reappeared. First the washer gave the error code E8, on the second try E9. And now it does not start at a


As you know E9 is linked to the water inlet problem. \015\012\015\012There are two scenarios here - 1) Are you using the Aqua-Stop safety system? If this is trigerring then it can shut the inlet water. The reason it can trigger is if the ... Smeg Dishwashers

I can hit the cancel button and it will make sounds like its trying to drain, and after about 5 minutes stops. I've done the heated wash/ no heat dry sequence to try to reset but no luck.

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?
