First 2 weeks ago i put an electric control module into the upper section. what comes on is the green flashing light for clean. in checking connections i found the paper for trouble shouting. i did what they said to do. they said hit the time saver - high temp - time saver - high temp. from there all the lights went on & the wash cycle started and ran. then it just stopped & the green light for clean just flashes. the water is still in the bottom & won't drain.

Fisher & Paykel DW60. Fault: Will not start regardless of program selected. E.g. if "heavy duty" pressed, only light will flash, if "normal" is pressed, only this light will flash etc. All hoses (water and drain) have been checked and no crimps or blockages found at either end. All usual methods tried (e.g. cleaning strainers and filters, turning power off for a while etc). Finally, while lights are working, the machine makes no noise at all when a pogram is selected.

Maytag mdb9150 dishwasher stopped at some point last night--found it this morning with flashing lights--I think "clean" and "heated dry", not sure.  I used "drain/off" to make sure there was mechanical noise--there was, so I don't think the machine is dead.  Purchased on 2001 with 5 year warranty, so out of luck there.  I tried turning off the electricity to the unit for a few hours; nothing improved.  When you start it (or think you have!) it makes noises for about a minute that sound promising

I have a Miele G892 SC dishwasher. When I start the cycle, it drains (except for a bit of water left below the triple filter). After that, the intake valve opens and water enters.

I have 1. cleaned the intake valve filter (no blockage found) 2. Inspected the drain line at the base of the unit as well as t

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to
