Re: dishwasher doesn't run

Don't forget to check for a switch on the wall above the counter. I just rediscovered mine for the fifth time since I moved in here, right next to the garbage disposal switch.

Re: dishwasher doesn't run

If you turn on the dishwasher and nothing happens: 1) Be sure the power is on, the door is latched, and the control is turned on. Also make sure the appliance cord is plugged into the electrical receptacle under the sink (some are hardwired and don't come unplugged). If it can be unplugged, make sure the electrical receptacle is working (plug in a working appliance or a circuit tester). 2) If that doesn't solve the problem, the door switch, the timer, or the selector switch may be defective. To solve the problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver (turn off the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel when working on it). 3) If that doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson.

I have a Bosch SHU9955US/14 (Integra) dishwasher. There is currently a 0 with and asterisk showing on the display and the unit will not run.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Thermal Fuse If the dishwasher won't start the thermal fuse might have blown. The thermal fuse helps to prevent damage to the dishwasher by turning off power so that it doesn't overheat. Once blown, the thermal fuse will have to be replaced for the dishwasher to work.

Door Switch The door switch, or switches, are sometimes called interlock switches. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the dishwasher won't start, the switch or switches might be defective. To access the door switches, remove the control panel or inside door panel - depending on the model. They can be tested for continuity.

Main Control Board The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher. If the dishwasher won't start the main control board might be defective. YOU should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced. On some models the touchpad and control panel are sold together and will need to be replaced at the same time.

Touchpad If the touchpad is defective, the control board might not get the signal for the selections made. If the dishwasher won't start and the display doesn't seem to change properly when the buttons are pressed, the touchpad might need to be replaced.

Timer The timer allows power to flow to the proper parts at the proper times. If the dishwasher won't start, the timer might be defective. Keep in mind that timers are often misdiagnosed as the cause of a problem. Check other components first before replacing the timer.

Shortest cycle takes 3 hours

Maybe its build up inside the dishwasher. A solution to this is to run one of the avaliable products for cleaning out the lime/scale/crud inside. Just because it looks clean doesn't mean that the hidden pump and lines aren't either partially clogged.or almost blocked. Is the hot water at 140 degrees? If not then the element inside may be attempting to heat the water to that minimum setting, If this doesn't help then I'd look at replacing the timer.

No there is not a reset button on diswashers. I would suggest you take the heating element out and check it with an ohmmeter to see if that is the problem - which is the most probable cause. If it is open - infinity reading on the ohmmeter, then it is bad.

If it is good then, it would be the control board.

My candy dishwasher is CDI505-S,and the problem is that in the coutdown button appeared E4 and the machine doesn'run,please what can I do......

It is most likely that there is flooding in the dishwasher due to water leakage.

This information thread from another model might be helpful in solving the problems.

Good Luck.

Bosch SHU3305 keeps running and doesn't clean dishes. Soap doesn't release.

you may need to replace the soap dispeser assembly which includes the solenoid that operates the lid.

See this diagram part 13. You may be lucky and it could only be the lid spring that is faulty. In which case you do not have to replace the whole assembly.

Good luck..

My dishwasher wont drain.. water stays in the tank..

When you run a dishwasher, there is usually food particles left over from a cycle. First thing is to check the lent screen. The lent screen is located on the bottom usually in the back of the dishwasher. If you want to put some gloves on and remove it and turn on the drain cycle on your dishwasher. If that doesn't do it turn off the power to the dishwasher by the breaker box, and check your hoses inside the dishwasher.

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.

Hope this helps...

Dishwasher problem

My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
