Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5966 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

Cycle seems never-ending

\015 I wanted to clean the dishwasher, so I cleared out the filters and ran a programme with a dishwasher cleaning powder. Since then, the washing programmes seem to be never-ending. It runs for hours - all day. I have tried different programmes but the same happens. No error messages are flashing up though. I can halt it by holding the start button then selecting the pre-wash, which does drain the machine, but it doesn't dry with that.\015

My Kenwood dishwasher KDW24FI/B has worked fine for approx 2 years. But now when I put my dishwasher on, the cycle never seems to end. After a few hours of running I opened the door to find the tablet hadn't dissolved but lots of steam coming out. I tried 2 more times and the same thing happened.

I have never put salt or rinse aid in since I had the dishwasher so thi

We have a FGHD2433KB1 model dishwasher. Among other problems that I have seen here (detergent door not opening, dishes not clean at the end) our biggest problem is that the dishes are never dry at the end. They are actually dripping wet. It doesn't seem like it is venting during the drying cycle. Any help would be welcome. thanks

The cycle doesn't seem to stop correctly. I start a load. It doesn't seem to matter which mode that I start in, but it will count-down the time, but at the end it hasn't stopped running. I've cleaned out the filter and the trap below. I've ran vinegar through a cycle. I've cleaned all of the spray arms. It doesn't seem to advance out of the wash mode. There is still some suds at the end. I have to end the cycle by canceling and draining it manually, then run a couple of "rinse--9 minute" cycles

Bosch dishwasher Does not heat up in the washing cycle and does not drain down at the end of the cycle. End of cycle the display sticks at 1 and the drain pump operates until the machine is switched off or reset. Followed the suggestion in another thread to look for a burnt solder joint on the control board. Unfortunately my machine is a later model than the board shown and has no poor joints on the board. It would seem from previous answers that the problem is either the controller, the heating

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch Integra SHU 9955US/12 - when we start wash cycle, the detergent dispenses and the tub fills with water, but the wash cycle never starts (never spins spray bars). Seems like timer is counting down, though, but doesn't start "washing". After waiting awhile, we are able to use the "Cancel/Drain" mode to drain the water. The drain filter in the bottom of the tub is clean.

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

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.

We have just purchased and installed our dishwasher. Towards the end of the cycles it has a very high pitch noise when the heated drying cycle. Is this normal, or is there something wrong? It is VERY annoying - it reminds us of a 'ringing in the ears' noise. Also - is there a listing of time for each cycle? It seems that it runs a LONG time in each cycle that I have tried - with or without any specific instruction, i.e. heated dry. Thank you.
