Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

I have some problems with a Whirlpool DWF 406 dishwasher: The other day, my wife complained about it not finishing a program (just stopped and started bleeping). I saw a post at this forum where it said to clean out the black grid down my the sump. I did that, and then the dishwasher worked fine a couple of times. Today when I got home from work, the machine just bleeped at me and and the green LED light by the start button flashed 9 times over and over again. Does anyone know what those 9 flash


Answers :

We have the same problem. The dishwasher is 10 years old. In one of the German forums they said that usually it's because the sieve ahead of the membrane has a fine layer of sludge and the pump cannot pump out the dirty waste water. They said that you have to dismantle the sieve, clean it thoroughly, re-install it, and it should work just like it always did.

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?

Hi, I've got a GE dishwasher (model GSD3207P00WW) which is making a horrible grinding noise... it still seems to work, however, it's loud enough that my girlfriend is terrified the machine is going to explode/light on fire/burn the house down/etc... It seems to happen intermittently (although lately it's been worse) and generally only goes on for about 2 minutes, around 2-3 times during each cycle. Any ideas?

Hello, Our Fagor LFA-013SS Dishwasher hasn't worked in a few days. It stopped working when it beeped 3 times after doing a load. On the machine it says if it beeps 3 times it means there's no drainage. My husband and I tried to fix it but we're not handy! So we tried calling repair companies but so far no one can repair Fagor dishwashers...help! Thanks

Our dishwasher won't start (model number 665.16049401). We had a similar problem last summer and a repairman came and fixed it. The problem was that the water level had gotten too low and so the machine locked itself off. This made sense as, at the time, I remembered filling the pool, running laundry and someone taking a shower all at the same time that I turned the dishwasher on. I am guessing this is the same thing that has happened now. The repairman put in a code and the machine worked. Can

Ignis ADL347 integrated dishwasher runs for a few seconds then stops, beeps and light flashes 6 times. I'm told this is due to water not getting into the dishwasher. it was working perfectly until we had a washing machine installed, can't see any pipes that are twisted or crushed but also don't have great access to the back of the washing machine or dishwasher. I have no expertise whatsoever. What should I be checking/trying? Any advice appreciated.

Dishwasher Repair Dishwasher is a Stoves/Newhome DW616 Rotating spray arms do not always operate. This is an intermittent problem - will sometimes work normally for a few days then arms will not move at all with no water coming from them. Machine appears to go through its normal cycle. Some times cycle starts normaly and spray arms stop working part way through.


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. \015\012The motor (and pump) located beneat ... Dishwashers

My De Dietrich dishwasher turns on but then turns off after a couple of minutes with no water entering dishwasher. I found some instructions and turned on and off 5 times (and unplugged). This worked once and full cycle ran but not the second time. Not sure if it is worth paying 165 call out charge or getting new machine as 7 years old

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

Hello my dishwasher seems to only do half a job at a time (and the timings for the programmes have increased dramatically). It will do a programme, but not drain, leave a puddle and leave everything dripping wet (no drying) then if I press reset the machine will drain (so the pump is working) but after resetting the problem remains and the programmes continue to not work properly. Can I solve this myself, or is this a problem with the 'computer'? Please help.......!

I just bought a used LG LDS 5811ST stainless steel built in dishwasher. The previous owner said he bought it 4 years ago. It's in great shape but doesn't work. It powers up but the water is not pumping into the dishwasher. The previous owner said that he thought it was the pump. He said he took it apart once and cleaned a bunch of crud out of some hoses and it worked for a while then started making funny noise and stopped. When i got it home i powered it up and connected water hose. It seems to

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 5 years old. Does this mean I can never leave for two weeks at a time and come home to a working dishwasher?


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommend ... GE Dishwashers

Bci450 My dishwasher has been always giving me lots of trouble. It is the BCI450 model from hotpoint. Whenever it reaches the washing stage for steam, it seems to beep alot. Many times they replaced the Circuit board but this problem comes back after 2 months. What could be the reason this is caused? Today they replaced the rubber thinking that water vapour might be reaching the circuit. I got this repaired about 7 times already and each time they replaced the circuit board.

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time. Today I'm back to a machine that will n
