Having problems with your Whirlpool DU840CWD Dishwasher ?

Have never used our dishwasher. It has a strange smell so I would like to use it now to clear up the scent, but I'am not able to get it running. Should there be an on/off button or maybe a switch?

The Bosch plastic push button (AP2804452) has broken on my SHU9950 dishwasher. The switch itself is still good. I have removed the broken pieces of the bad button from the unit and am now depressing the switch without the button. When I get the new push button, what is the proper way to remove the control panel cover to put the new button in place? Thanks!

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?

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher (model. GLD3450RDB0) that always displays the "lock" icon under the no heat dry button. I am able to get rid of it by holding the button for 3 seconds, but I am still unable to select anything or get the dishwasher to start afterwards. As soon as I close the door, the unit locks again! What can I do?

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?


Hi.This is not a PC, when logic board is fried the machine does not start at all rather than doing weird thing.The logic board is not fried, in the worst case the salt sensor is jammed. Try first pouring a couple of litres of hot wa ... Miele 24 in. Novotronic G641 Plus Built-In Dishwasher

Dishwasher stuck on rinse cycle. Have three yo son who plays with buttons, but I've been unable to get washer to finish (rinse went for three hrs prior to me realizing it was still running). Tried the front panel buttons w/o effect other than able to turn unit off, but it resumes in rinse cycle. Turned power off to machine from circuit breaker ( w/ machine off) then restarted and still in rinse cycle. How do I reset?

Our dishwasher model is a Nautilus FP920WW. The unit switches on OK and displays the normal wash cycle settings but when we try to start or change a cycle (or press any button for that matter) all we get is a quick, intermittent beeping and nothing happens/changes. Switching the dishwasher off and on again at the wall does nothing to solve this problem. What's going on???

Hi! We have a GE Profile PDW9280J0SS with electronic control malfunctions. I can't get it out of the ADDED HEAT mode and many of the other button lights won't light up. I've flipped the breaker several times, and this does (usually) reset the controls to "Normal" and "Heat Dry", but when you push "Start" it switches back to the ADDED HEAT mode. When it goes through this cycle the soap dispenser doesn't open so the dishes don't get clean. I can't use the arrows to select different types of w

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm. Machine was well into its regular cycle when this first occurred, but now, won't even get past initial fill. Pushing the "Cancel/drain" button activates motor and pump: they work fine.
