My Delonghi Dishwasher keeps turning off. The dishwasher is turned on at the power point. The water is turned on. Okay When I press the POWER botton on the front it wont stay on. I have to keep my finger on the POWER button and then press the START button for washer to work. If I do this it will then pump out any water in the bottom and start to work. ***BUT when you take your finger of the POWER button the washer just turns off and stops working. Do you have any idea what could be the problem p

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADG 450. Start as normal and it keeps intermittentlly stopping and starting. Washs / drains fine, but sometimes cycle seams to last for a couple of hours. I think it is four beeps when it is stopping and then immediately starts again. We had a problem months ago where as the sink was draining into the dishwasher out pipe, so dishwasher wasn't draining / filling up. Fixed the problem by turning the pipe the other way so water couldn't flow that way - but I don't know if that

Dishwasher is just less than 1 year old. it doesn't respond to attempts to turn on. I turned off the power at the box and back on after 10 minutes. it worked. then the same problem returned. now it wont turn on at all. I checked all the connections I could and they seem fine. I know it is getting power. My guess is that something is wrong with the computer system. any ideas?

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher, model DU943 that's under 7 years old. I went to use it last night and it won't power on. I tried selecting all of the cycles, but the dishwasher never came on. I looked through the troubleshooting tips in my manual (like checking the circuit breaker for a tripped fuse, which was fine) and I still have a problem. what else can I try? thanks.

'Dead' DU1100XTP The dishwasher will not start - no lights at all - no indication that anything's working (although I confirmed the unit has power). I've seen numerous posts regarding the control board - is there a problem with these in general? My unit is just beyond the warranty (naturally!) so I'd like to know if there's been any concession made by the manufacturer due to the number of problems. I'd gladly replace the board if Whirlpool would send me one. Thanks.

Hello, my slimline, Hoover, HEDS 668, AAA class, dishwasher is playing up. During a wash cycle, my meter tripped. When I put the power back on, all the light were flashing and beeping. The beeping stops after a while and all the lights stay on. It sounds like it is trying to fill up or drain or something too, but that soon stops. The filters are clean. What could be the problem?

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC14 dishwasher. The dishwasher is in a new home I just purchased. I tried to run the dishwasher on a normal cycle. However, when I push POWER and NORMAL CYCLE it makes a buzzing noise...and that's it. I opened the dishwasher and on the base of the dishwasher there was a screen that could be removed. I noticed that there was still some anti-freeze fluid in there (because the house was winterized). Could there be a simple solution to this problem?
