Wash water does not get hot


That doesn't sound right, because it should be hooked up to the hot water to begin with, the heating element in the dishwasher just boosts the temp for sterilizing.

When you have a dishwasher you usually increase the temp of the hot water tank, it's usually in the manual.

If you have small children then it's better not to make it very hot.

As to why the dishwasher isn't getting real hot, the heating element is probably bad and needs replacing.

Also setting can be low or off, but water should be hot even if they are low at least what temp your hot water tank is set at.

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance


The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

Commercial glass sterilizer draining hot water tank


SOUNDS LIKE THE TIMER RUNS CONTINUOUSLY, DOES IT RUN WITH THE DOOR OPEN. HOW DOES IT GET WATER IF IT IS NOT "ON" THE WATER INLET VALVE COULD BE LEAKING INTO THE UNIT, BUT UNLESS ON SHOULD JUST OVERFLOW UNLESS IT AUTOMATICALLY SENSES AND HEATS THE WATER . IT MAY BE AS SIMPLE AS A TIMER OTHER THAN THAT CAN YOU JUST TURN OFF THE UNIT WITH A SWITCH, MIGHT BE CHEAPER........

For over six months our dishes (especially glass and china) aare covered in a gritty, darkish material. We often have to rewqsh or hand-wah these items afterwards. We have tried numerous rinse additives,...


i would guess that you run out of hot water in your house pretty quickly. if so, your water heater tank needs drained. hook a hose to the bottom outlet on the tank. shut off the cold water supply to the tank. open up the hot water on a nearby sink. drain the tank into a sump or a drain or a bucket that is lower than the tank. it will cost you 40 or 50 gallons of water, but it should clear up the sediment that you see floating in your hot water supply. you might have to do it twice. good luck

Water coming into dishwasher when not running


Removed intake water valve assembly and found a piece of plastic wedged in intake port preventing valve from closing. Piece of plastic was old filler tube from old hot water tank which disintegrated and got into hot water pipes in home. Similar pieces of plastic have affected water mixer valves at various sinks in home and have also plugged aeration screens.

You need to reset the computer on the bottom. Had the same problem with mine. The Blinking led means the heating element is bad and will not operate.

Check to see in you have enough water in tank. The dishwasher fills then recirculates this water under pressure. If you have water in tank, listen to see if motor is running or not. If it is, you may have clogged jet holes in the wash arms.

Heats up water slowly, only by repeated operation


The wash tank element should be operated through a 3 or pole contactor which gets its power only when the rinse tank has come up to temp and switched the thermostat over(rinse tank heating takes priority). Is the rinse tank element fully intact ie-is it pulling its full amperage or is part of the element blown causing it to take longer to heat? Is the rinse contactor dropping in when the thermostat for the rinse tank is turned fully down? It sounds like a thermostat or contactor problem- good luck and let me know how you get on. Kitcheneer
