    Hi, i'm having the same issue. The wash cycle will get half way through and will not progress any further. Also when I try a clean and dry this will complete the cycle with no heat when it sould leave the dishes very hot (hence the drying). My electrician said it may be the timer? Are they easy to replace, also what is the rough pricde for this unit?

    The dishwasher was working fine. We removed it for about 2 weeks to remodel the kitchen. When we re-installed it, it starts, fills up and begins washing. When the control knob points straight down it stays in that position and continues to wash indefinatly. If you turn the knob slightly it will continue to run through the rest of the cycles ok. I tried it several times and the knob always sticks in the same position with the dishwasher staying in the wash position. What would cause this?

    My Maytag fills and runs fine, but does not empty and refill, it just
    keeps running and running. I have to manually force it to drain.

  • Rotors Mar 16, 2008

    Dishwasher reaches 38 minutes (time to go) and continues to run. Opening and closing the door does not affect the timer. The electronic panel will not accept any other commands except "Cancel". Timer will not count down further. Usually, (after 12-15 minutes at 38) it begins to complete the cycle. Sounds like a timer issue to me and I guess that means $$$$.

    We have a Electrolux ESI6104 dishwasher and the switch stopped working. We have replaced the timer switch and it still does not work. We are not getting any heat at all into the machine. Is there a cut out switch for the heating element or will we need to replace the element. If so where is the switch or element found in the machine.

  • Can-do Most Apr 01, 2008

    The pump motor keeps running. The cycle seems to run complete, but the motor doesn't stop. Opening the door is the only way to stop it. Water fills, heats, washes and releases detergent. Not a good situation if you forget to open the door.

  • waltery May 01, 2008

    The top dishdrawer starts on its own, displays random cycling symbols on the display. Bottom dishdrawer works fine. Only way to stop the top dishdrawer is to turn the whole dishwasher off at the wall. We spent $450 a week ago getting a F&P serviceman out to fix the problem. Absolutely hopeless. Any ideas would be appreciated. I would like to know how to remove the facia of the dishdrawer to check the control & LCD circuit board. Any suggestions?

    Have same issue, if left will go continuously, have to move this on by hand. Does this mean a new timer. If so how much did it cost as want to avoid being ripped off. V annoyed as its only 2 years old.

    My Zanussi DCS 14W dishwasher, comes on ok and the lights are on too. After it has been going a while, the lights go out but the machine continues to keep running. The only way I can switch it off at this point, is via the mains.



    We have replace the on/off switch but this has made no difference. Any ideas much appreciated. Ty.

  • omega1911 May 11, 2010

    My dishwater continues to run and gets stuck in area for a long period of time unless I move the knob. I don't know if it's because of the temperature or not. I've checked a couple of times and the temperature is hot. Sometimes when I don't move the knob to advance the dishwater, the water will be still standing at the bottom of the dishwasher once the cycle has completed. I don't know what the problem is.

  • sachlaura10 May 11, 2010

    Hi, have got the on/off switch situation sorted (ty for that); now what is happening is that the machine is not progressing. From feeling the water inside the machine, it is stone cold. We have a reading for the water heater which would suggest it is working. Now suspect the thermostat? but have no idea where it is located in our dishwasher (Zanussi DCS 14W). Ty for any ideas/help.

I have a similar problem. On the main program the dishwasher starts but stops during the cycle leaving the motor running. I have had the problem before and called a repair man out, he traced the fault to a broken wire leading from the control unit / timer to somewhere under the machine. The break was located where the wires went under the door, I would tend to suggest that this fault has re occurred and your fault may be the same.

90%of the time your element has not come on thus not allowing the timer to continue. remove the water, tilt the unit backwards and check underneath if there is an element reset button. if so depress it. try again. otherwise one needs to test the element for a resistance reading.(23 to 30ohms). no reading replace the element. try again.

Try adding some water with a bucket when the machine stops progressing. (about 1 or 2liters will do). Dont switch the machine off, just pause or open the door. Dovi is correct stating that the machine waits for the water to heat up. Sometimes there is not enough water in the machine and the heater-safty swith in the heater chaimber breaks the power to prevent element burnout.

DEFINATELY SEEMS LIKE THE HEATER. VERY SELDOM DOES ONE HAVE TO REPLACE THE TIMER. IF YOU FORWARD THE TIMER PAST THAT POINT OF NO MOVEMENT, DOES THE TIMER STILL NOT PROCEED OR DOES IT THEN CONTINUE. IF IT CONTINUES, MOST LIKELY HEATER FAULT IF NO MOVEMENT, INDICATES TIMER FAULT

Allways unplug the dishwasher when investigating faults. Next remove lid and right side panel, check the connections that go to the heating element. Some times the electrical connection makes a poor conection to the element, this causes heat to build on the connection tab. As time goes on, this effect gets worse, until finally is becomes open circuit from the element. Note that it is not the element that is faulty, only the piece of wire and spade connection that requires replacing. 50 pence not £5o !!!, so always check before calling an Engineer in. Hope this helps and saves you money. Regards Ron the wizard

The dishwasher should heat the water to about 50 C as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water and waiting for the water to reach the temperature. In your case it look like the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. Another possible is that the timer unit is defective (this is the worse case because of its cost !!!!)

SOURCE: cycle will not start

sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.

Du1100xtpq7 dish washer keep repeating wash cycle doesn't go past this just keeps washing


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:
Water-heating cycle
Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next depends, as follows:

On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timer
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Dishwasher keeps tripping electric


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
