Model KUD101TJ - WASH CYCLE DOES NOT ENGAGE

WASHER POWERS UP, BUT WAHCYCLE WILL NOT ENGAGE

Posted by on

  • bweisbord Jan 24, 2009

    The panel lights up correctly when I push the buttons.  The washer does not fill with water.  We think it broke when we accidentally started the washer with the water service to the house turned off.  


    Our model # is kud101tjbl0. Thanks for helping!

Hi OHG55,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: WASHER POWERS UP, BUT WAHCYCLE WILL NOT ENGAGE

Does it fill with water? If not then you have a bad solenoid valve. If it does then it's either a bad control board or a bad motor. I don't recomend these repairs for the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory for a repairman. If it has a few years on it then perhaps it's time to compare the costs of repair verses replacement.

Why will it only wash through a whole cycle if i am leaning on the door?


For safety reasons manufacturers started to put switches on washer lids so machines would not run with lid open. Your problem is with your switch. It may have wore out, or through use broken a small piece off it's end, not allowing the switch to fully engage. When you lean on the door, you are helping the switch fully engage. Look around the perimeter of your lid and you will find the switch. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Samsung DMT300RFW Builtin Dishwasher will not run past wash cycle. I start it and it fills and the wash cycle starts but won't cycle past the wash cycle. No error codes.


Don't know enough from your description. Does the pump hum, or empty the washer? There's a strainer under the lower washer arm that may be plugged. If the pump doesn't engage at all, my first thought would be the timer portion of the control board. I'd guess the control board would run about $125 or so.

I have a model # gsd2030f01ww with a serial# of ga823350b. The problem is it will go through the cycles but when it goes to the final drain.it doesnt want to drain. What could be the problem?


I have the same model with the same problem.

I took the washer apart to find any obvious issues. The motor is functioning, the impeller is free from debris, the solenoid does engage and open flap to redirect water to the drain hose. I believe it drains part way through the wash but doesn't drain in the cycle just before the dry cycle.

Water left after finishing wash


I have a Bosch Dishwasher and the E-Nr is SGS4362EU/03. The machine is approximately 4 years old, in good condition and has been working very well. Suddenly, there is water remaining after it completes a 50 degrees C wash cycle. This is also evident with the pre wash cycle and the 65 degrees wash cycle.

I have checked and cleaned the filters. I have loosened the internal pump white cover (Torx T 20 screw) and checked for any physical blockage - none. I have also checked for any drainage hose kinks - none.

I have tried a series of empty washes and the machine drains the water during the wash cycles. The dishes are also have a dull colour and show show signs of not being properly rinsed during the wash cycle.

Please assist.

Reagrds,

Brian
