    Hi Huuum

    Thank you for your help, I have just realized you are in the US !! Anyway I suppose a dishwasher is a dishwasher wherever you are. I am a heating engineer so from what you say the likely fault is a circuit board, could I just not buy another and stick it in, or is it a tricky job to get at.

    Many Thanks

You said, Hi My dishwasher programmer doesnt work, when i try to put the time in it will not let me go further thah 20 minutes or so, then if you run that time it sticks on 'one minute to go'. on opening nothing has been cleaned.

Need the model number and the year.
Try to turn off the machine and then turn off the breaker for five minutes and see if it resets the system.

Sounds like :
Defective Timer

The timer is a series of switches that controls all machine functions. If one of the contacts in the timer is defective, the machine will lose that function. knowledge of the the use of a vol/ohmmeter is essential to testing the timer as well as the ability to read the timer sequence chart that is supplied with the machine. In most cases this requires a professional technician.

Let me know how it goes.

    Get hands on diagnoses from someone with eyes.
    Because you do not want to just randomly buy parts and throw them in.
    That gets expensive. And these are not the days to try this any more!
    Where are you? Germany or Switzerland?
    Let me know how it goes!!

    Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

    Repair or replace?

    When to pull the plug on your old dishwasher

    Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
    in the owner's manual.

    Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
    The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher,
    how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

    Follow these guidelines:

    When a repair makes sense.

    If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than four years old ,
    paying for a repair makes sense.
    Note that dishwashers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
    readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

    When a repair might be a wise choice.

    If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
    it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
    But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
    given that today's models have added features.
    Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
    are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
    more efficient than those built before 1993.

    When it pays to replace

    The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher.
    Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher
    eight or more years old.

    Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
    of dishwashers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Dishwasher humming, check water light on, no progress

Sounds like the inlet solenoid is not working. It lets water in. It is operated by the control board. Either could be bad. You would need a schematic and a multimeter to check the solenoid. Dangerous voltages are present.

My siemens dishwasher runs for about 4 hours what's the problem?

Could be the instantaneous water heater, the power module or both.
Or it may not be taking sufficient water to allow the heater to turn on as it has a boil dry safety. Check the following to rule out water shortage
if you remove the lid (no screws on lid, there are two clips at the rear, release them and the whole lid will slide back and then off) and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you should check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4 to see where they are located, parts 480748 and 298556.

Best of luck.
