Dish washer doesn't drain, and control board only blinks

My dishwasher stopped working. There is a couple of inches of water in the bottom, and the control board is blank except for a small blinking light in the lower left corner. The outgoing drain is clear, the motor is not seized, or stuck, and I tried turning power on and off with no results

Samsung dishwasher heavy and delicate lights blink and cycle stops


The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!

Dish washer will not drain after the cycle is complete. There is about 2 inches of water remaining at the bottom of the dishwasher.


You may need to remove the drain hose from the bottom of your sink,put it in a bucket and try to drain your dishwasher.If this still does not work and you have a wet dry shop vac you can use it to drain the water from the hose this will also allow you to check for anything restricting the flow of water thourgh the hose.Once the water is gone you may need to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet and check the drain pump for something that is stoping the impellar wheel from turning.If there is nothing stopping the impellar thenyou will need to replace the drain pump.

I hope this hepls with your problems good luck.

The electronic control looks for a temp. rise of 2-4 degrees. If no temp.rise control assumes a heater fault and blinks clean light 7 times. Bad heater. Water fill when completed can be no less than 1/2 inch below heater. If so, water valve probably. Circulation motor not working properly. Neutral door switch. Tech sheet is behind bottom cover. Check underneath of unit for leaking or white hard water deposits. Common for seals to leak. If unit is unusually noisy, motor problem. Common after 4-5 years. Will check back to see if you other questions. Good luck.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa.
F1 error means that the flood switch has been activated. You'll need to reset it by powering off the breaker or by unplugging the unit from the power socket and mains for more than five minutes. Please check that there is no blockage in the drain hose and it is not raised higher otherwise the water will run back to the dishwasher. Also perform the following procedure---

    • Unplug power and remove bottom dish drawer
    • Use a Sponge and dry all the excess water underneath
    • Remove circuit board cover
    • Dry all around and underneath as much as possible
    • Apply hairdryer for 10-15min

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


Thanks

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

Dishwasher wont fill


Make sure the dishwasher is not stuck in some kind of error mode. Make sure the water valve is turned on. Take the bottom front service door off and locate the water valve on the front left bottom of the machine. Make sure there are wires connected to it. If it's still not working, pick up a cheap electrical multimeter. Set it to the resistance setting, and remove the wires from the water valve. Test the resistance across the water valve's terminals. If the resistance is very high, or infinity, the water valve needs to be replaced. If the water valve is ok, turn the dishwasher on and test the voltage across the wires that go to the water valve at a time in the cycle when you know the dishwasher's controller will be trying to let water in. It may be either ac or dc voltage, so try both settings on the meter if you don't get a reading. If no voltage is read across those wires, open up the dishwasher and find the circuit board that the water valve's wires connect to, and make sure they're connected to the board properly. If that still doesn't work, there's a problem with the dishwasher's control board. Look for a square or rectangular blue, gray, black, white box on the circuit board near where the wire plugs in. This is the mechanical switch that turns on the power to the water valve when the computer sends a signal that it wants water. This switch may be jammed up. Try tapping it firmly with screwdriver. If that doesn't work, you can desolder the power switch and solder on a new one. If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the board or do some advanced work on it.

Wont run, and control board blinks


hi Because the timer controls many operations, a faulty timer can cause many problems. The timer is a complex component, so you shouldn't attempt a do-it-yourself repair. Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the timer, remove the front control panel. The timer is directly behind the main timer control knob. Disconnect one of the timer's terminal wires and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced. 

If possible, use the same procedure to test the selector and cycle switches. The wiring hookup, however, may be too complicated to figure out on either of these switches. If you aren't sure you can deal with these switches, call a professional service person. Replace a faulty timer -- or a faulty control switch -- with a new one made for the dishwasher.

The timer is connected to several wires that supply power to operate the various functions of the dishwasher. To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one. Connect the wires of the new timer one by one, removing the old wire and connecting the new, to make sure you connect the wires correctly. The wires may be friction-fit on the terminals. If they are, use long-nosed pliers to remove the wires. Don't pull up on the wires, or you may break the connection between the wires and the clips. 

After connecting the wires, set the new timer in position, secure it the way the old one was secured, and replace the control panel and knobs.

If your dishwasher won't fill with water properly or isn't drying the dishes, you most likely have a valve or heating element problem. In the next section, we'll discuss how you can assess these types of problems.

Valve, Dispenser, and Dish Rack Repairs
Checking on and routinely maintaining the various valves, detergent dispenser, and dish rack can keep the right amount of water and cleaner working effectively in your dishwasher.

Dishwasher starts then stops


My (KUDI01TJ)Dishwasher did the same thing.
I Pressed start, it acted like it was starting and then turned off.

FIX:
I started the rapid advance service diagnostic feature:
1.Close dishwasher door
2.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
3.press "Energy Saver Dry"
4.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
5.press "Energy Saver Dry"
This started the diagnostics and the dishwasher went through each cycle.
After this, my dishwasher worked fine.

I think the controller must have got in some wierd mode and unpluging the washer would not clear it out but running the
diagnostics cleared it.
Hope this works for you
