Matsui MS160SL dishwasher not working.


To wash dishes you can use a bucket to fill the washer. Things to check are the float in the washer that regulates the fill level. Make sure it is not stuck, if that is okay, check the filter at the water inlet to the washer. It should have a screen on it. It might be blocked. To check that you have to pull it out if it is a in the counter mounted unit. If there are no debris in the filter, check the voltage on the water valve. If you have voltage the valve is bad, if not voltage the controller is bad.

Hi Colin, I need to find a manual for my dishwasher. Its aMatsui M12FDW09 any advice would be great thanks. Dishwasher start to make strange noise and the water is not coming through to start the first ...


Hi Colin,

Please click the link below to download the manual for the Matsui M12FDW09:

http://www.partmaster.co.uk/company/partmaster/manuals/M12FDW09_IB_GB_FINAL_091110.pdf

The manual is in English. Please ignore the Japanese text on the cover. Unfortunately, it's unlikely having the manual will help you identify the cause of the fault.

I'm assuming the flashing light you are referring to is numbered 1 in the control panel diagram on page 2 (the 5th page of the PDF manual). This light simply indicates the dishwasher is in the pre-rinse stage of the wash cycle. Your description suggests the solenoid has failed, so the water inlet valve isn't opening and no water is entering the dishwasher.

I only repair Matsui washers on call-out as they are a Dixon's Stores Group (DSG) only brand in the UK, so I don't see that many of them and can't get service manuals. I can diagnose and fix them when they're in front of me, but I couldn't tell you from memory how to get access to the components and test them.

I hope this helps you a little, even though it doesn't really solve your problem.

Regards, BElectric

Dishwasher leaves baked on soap scum on al dishes and everything ....even on the dishwasher ...tried all kinds of soap and rinse aid...nothing works...cleaned entire washer out cleaned all filters...


I imagine you've already checked that you're using the correct amount of detergent for the wash programme, and that you're washing the correct quantity of dishes for the wash programme, though if not, try that first!

Is the dishwasher heating the water to the correct temperature? If it's not rinsing at a hot enough temperature, the detergent may leave a residue. In that case, your dishes would probably also be less than entirely clean; they could be slightly greasy when removed from the machine.

Another possibility is that insufficient water is supplied to the dishwasher, so it might be worth checking the tap that lets water through the hose and into the machine. Does the tap turn on fully? Does it turn off properly?

The other thing that might be worth trying is an empty wash: put the machine through a wash programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes, at the programme with the highest temperature. Is all the soap scum washed away? Or is there still a residue inside the machine? If the empty wash works, you probably need to give your machine a maintenance wash once a month or so. This is often the case if you usually wash your dishes a few at a time on a short programme.

I hope some of that helps. Good luck!

The dishwashing liquid has gotten thick in my ge dishwasher. The dishes are not getting clean. How do I clean out the dishwashing liquid resevoir?


Try running the hottest, longest programme WITH detergent but WITHOUT dishes. If you usually wash just a few dishes on a short programme, you might find that the machine never gets hot enough to wash away all the detergent residue.

Matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops


on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

My matsui mf2w/a dishwasher sticks during cycle. normally about 10 minutes into the wash. i can move it on manually but the wash is poor. the water does not appear to be heating


check the safety thermostat which is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. you have to remove the bottom plate,and then you will find easily the thermostat-KSD201/PF 90. you have to reset this probably.there is a red wax dot in the middle this thermostat, so remove it and use a needle to press a very small button inside. the heating element is working well probably.you can measure resistance on it to be sure.

My Smeg dishwasher DWF 64 SSE won't go onto rinse or dry


Easy one first try this to see if it helps

Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
