Our machine is frozen not responding to panel buttons


You can try resetting your dishwasher.

1. First, unplug the dishwasher power cord or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Then, plug the dishwasher power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
3. After that, press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Finally, start a short cycle, to check operation of the dishwasher, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the dishwasher starts.

I have a Brandt dishwasher and the alarm goes off soon after I've started the cycle.Clearly the dishes have not been washed.I have pressed the prewash and start button at the same time to cancel this beep...


The alarm has gone off because there is a problem. Make sure all filters are clean and the hoses not blocked. Check that the machine has been loaded properly and nothing is obstructing the arms from rotating. If still not working ring a service agent or manufacturer, or contact online.

After pressing start programme light goes off and it 'bleeps' all the time


I had a somewhat similar problem on my Miele G896SCI dishwasher. Here was the fix that worked, provided by phone by Miele.

1. Turn on at On/Off button. 2. Press and hold Start/Stop button until the red light blinks. 3. Press On/Off button to Off, then back On.

That reset the machine and it returned to normal operation for years

The control lock light goes on as soon as I press the cycle to start the dishwasher. The dishwasher does not start, presumably because the control lock stays on. I do not know how to disable the control...


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To unlock the controls press and hold the HEATED DRY button for 20seconds. If the problme returns then only option is touch pad replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi above please find your service and repair manual.If the fix below doesn't work, then work through the service manual troubleshooting steps and you will soon zero in on the problem.
Now this fix below may or may not fix your DW, however it works many many times, so may well be worth a go to start with.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

I have a kenmore Elite Ultra Wash Dishwasher that won't run. The lights for the various wash and dry options come on, but when I push the start button, it flashes green three times and then goes off.


Sounds like a safety - lock is operating.

Close and press start button - keep button derpressed untill machine actually starts - maybe 8 seconds or so.

If this does not do it, unplug for 24 hours then try again.

Hi jannewbery,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have looked in the manual under troubleshooting tips, but didn't find anything on the problem. The dishwasher goes into cycle,but during the wash cycle it stops,makes alarm and the wash and rinse ligts come on. And now you can't even find the product on this site.Westpoint Dishwasher WQP12-9240.
Thankyou Your dishwasher is stopping at stage 2 of the programme after beeping once. Quite often the detergent flap doesn't open. Am at your wits end and threatening to leave home!!!! The machine is less than a year old. PLEASE HELP!!!! Thank you.

Don't leave just yet. It sounds like a control problem. The d/w should still be under warranty if it is less than one year old. Use it before it runs out. I don't recomend this type of repair for the average homeowner.

Feel free contact me again!

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps
