Hi

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012for using FixYa. This issue can be either due to a faulty door latch or\015\012door lock switch which is not engaging itself. And, if the door latch will not\015\012engage the dishwasher will sense it as open door and will not start the cycle.\015\012And the sound might be coming from the door lock solenoid (a hum/buzz\015\012sound).
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012The light\015\012also blinks when the dishwasher detects a no-fill\015\012condition. You’ll need to get access to the fill valve by removing left\015\012panel, look at back to see where valve is when you get to it remove one of the\015\012wires and set meter to ohms setting and put a lead on each tag on valve. The\015\012reading you should be about 3.6k ohm if you don’t get a reading then the valve\015\012is at fault. I'll also suggest you to check the detergent dispenser\015\012solenoid for this issue. Remove the door panel and see if there is a round\015\012item at the dispenser assembly with two wires attached to it. Put the\015\012dishwasher into a cycle and when the noise appears, gently press on the\015\012solenoid to see if that is where the noise is coming from.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Please do\015\012accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further\015\012assistance.

I have a magtag quiet 100 series that has a broken handle but still shuts tight and seems to lock yet. Problem seems to be that the rinse only light will stay on for quite a long time and won't let me hit the wash button. When the rinse only light does go off, if I hit the wash button it starts but then switches to rinse only. Sometimes I can get lucky and get it to stay on wash after the rinse button is off for some time. Any suggestions?

I have a Gallery 900 series GLDB958AS dishwasher. The cycle status lights (just right of the "time remaining" status window) continually blink. None of the buttons on the front panel work and every 10 minutes or so the water pump starts up for about a minute then shuts off. No water enters the dishwasher. I tried turning the power off then on but there is no change. Every so often a random cycle light will blink or light up for a minute, then turns off.

Pots/pan light blinks alternately with the normal wash button. Sometimes the cycle will start and then the lights come on. Once they start blinking, the cycle stops and I can't get it to start again. Unplugging it for a few days has worked a few times. But it just keeps getting more frequent. If it does start up, it heats fine and washes perfectly.
