Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


Answers :

This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a high tech infrared beam that looks down a tube around the top of the tub. Others just use a regular micro switch. Check to see if that could be causing the intermittent.
In the front left bottom of the tub is a float switch; it sometimes is under a cover with a screw securing it it looks like a big round ball shaped piece of plastic and on the bottom of this float there's a pin going down a hole in the tub (the float pin sits on the switch and, water lifting up and down on the float moves the switch: listen for a distinct "click" as you move the float up and, down
\015\012you see; the float rises as the water fills the dishwasher tub closing the float switch and, signaling the washer to start cleaning the dishes
\015\012some times dirt prevents movement of the float but,waiting usually displaces the dirt/soap etc. just enough to make it work again until the float pin gets encrusted again the cure is to clean the float pin

PLD2560LCC1 Frigidaire Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem. I wonder if it's the control "panel"? I took that off and looked at it. Seems okay, but could the problem. I've heard this model has control problems, but I'm not sure if they mean the major control board or the control panel that has the buttons.

Dishwasher will not start when pressing the start button. Timer light flashed numbers and went off. None of the lights and buttons work. Circuit breaker in electrical panel is working. Does the on/off switch need replacing, or is it possible a mini circuit board is bad? Dishwasher installed in 2000 and is used on the average once per week.


As it is nearly 10 years old i would suggest you replacing the circuit board. To test exactly we would need the help of an continuity tester and multimeter. ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

The controls on my GE GLD4600N10WW have on occasion locked up. In the past, I have resolved this by turning the breaker off and back on. It has now locked up, but won't reset. When the breaker is turned back on, the dishwasher control panel lights indicate "Normal Wash" and "Heated Dry" but the controls do not respond. After several minutes the lights simply go dark. It does not respond to any button pushing.

I own a Maytag MDB5100AWB three lights are flashing on the panel, the clean button, rinse only and heavy wash. I've tried turning off the breaker for 20 minutes, pushing the buttons in sequence, holding them down, nothing seems to work. It's done this before and a repairman pushed the buttons and it worked.

I have a Maytag Quietseries 300 dishwasher that I bought new in 2004. The buttons on the control panel will not respond. That is, no lights will display when I push the buttons. It has behaved like this in the past and after several weeks of not using it suddenly it will begin working normally again. However, I think this time it has stopped working permanently. The model number is MDBTT79AWW. What do you think could be wrong? I have tried flipping the circuit breaker to reset it but no c

Hi In the middle of a wash cycle, my dishwasher tripped the circuit breaker on the wall. I diagnosed this by unpluggin dishwasher, plugging in a different appliance and switching circuit breaker back on. new appliance worked OK. When dishwasher had cooled, I tried it again on same circuit (which I knew was working properly). The lights came on for about three seconds, and then the circuit breaker cut back in again, so I knew it was the dishwasher that was causing the problem. Is there anyt

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB600AWB, serial 18721619CN Quiet Series 300 will light up on the panel except for NORMAL WASH and START. It will not run. All other buttons work. It displayed the number 9 and the RINSE ONLY light came on after we got off the phone with Maytag. Initially nothing would light at all. We changed the fuse (it is NOT on a breaker) and it again didn't light. A few minutes later it did light the above mentioned buttons.

Wont start I've had the washer for many years with minimal problem. Yesterday when I closed the door no light went on and the washer would not start.  After 20 minutes or so it suddenly went on and worked fine.  I thought that it might have not completed its last cycle. Today, however, I had the same problem and it's been over an hour and still hasn't started. (I checked the circuit breaker and it's fine)
