Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle. Then I have to rewash with no soap to simulate the rinse and again manually drain (cancel) the cycle. This was a $650 dishwasher. I am not sure how to reset the controller or even trouble shoot for an error code. Any suggestions?

My frigidaire dishwahser was set to run a normal wash cycle and heat dry. It never ran, the soap is still in the holder and the lock beneath the heat dry option is lit. I'm unable to cancel or select any other options. I cannot get the dishwasher to run. Do you have a solution? I have tried holding down a number of the buttons in different combonations but still can't get the light to go out or start a wash cycle.

I have a GU1500XTLB1, type-575-0 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. For the last couple of weeks I've been getting the control lock on. I got the manual out, I hold the air dry button and it clears. My problem is now when I turn the machine on dosen't matter which cycle I hit (pots and pans, normal, or quick wash) it runs for about 5 minutes and it goes into a mode with the timer having lines going horizontal with the air dry button lit up and rinse button lit up. It sounds like it starts the cycle

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

Help! My dishwasher runs thru it's cycles but when I open it I find my second detergent cup still full of soap and my dishes still dirty. I have an older maytag dishwasher but have never had this problem with it. I've tried running a short prewash cycle with the soap despenser open to wash out the soap from the open second despenser but it doesn't wash it out. I know water is coming out of the spray arms but can't see if the arms are spinning although when running it does sound like they ar

After running a cycle, there is some water in the tub and the soap dispenser is open but the soap has only run down the inside of the door. It does not sound like there is a vigorous spray during the wash cycle. Opening the door during the wash cycle reveals only a little water reaching the upper arm.

Bosch SHE55P05UC Used it maybe 10 times in 10 months (long remodel underway) and noticed it didn't work properly. Powers up, but doesn't always fill with water...just "runs" until I shut it off.

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control lock function. Pushing and holding the button for 3 seconds does not disable it.

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both. Checked the hose under the sink. We

Control panel will not light up, the dishwasher was running and now it has stopped mid cycle and will not do anything. I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem. There is power to the outlet, no tripped breakers. But control panel will not light up.
