Unit hums, but no water or washing action

The unit foams from a few areas but nothing spins, water doesn't jet.  So the cycle won't complete.

I stupidly filled my dishwasher with washing up liquid, have got rid of all the bubbles now and have lost count of buckets of cold water I have flushed through it, not it doesn't appear to be adva

Hi Rosslyn, there is nothing to be apologetic about. We all make mistakes. By "truncated" I meant the problem description you had given was cut short for some reason. However, looking at your response the model number you have given, I can only think the problem is persisting because the foam from the washing detergent has seeped to odd places. I am not very familiar with the Hygena model. If your unit has a water softner unit then the thing can be complicated. In which case if the problem is still there you will need to call a technician. If there is no water softener unit, then one thing to do is turn off the power and back on. If still no change, then turn of the power, drag the unit out from under bench and tilt it a few times on each side. Wait a little and try again. If there is foam or liquid still around, it might come out. The other problem could be with the detergent dispenser. it might need taking out and cleaning inside. Needs a bit of technical skills to do that. Once again as I said before I am not familiar with this brand of dishwashers.

Whirlpool built in dishwasher DU840SWKQO


Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Smeg SA663 X1. It starts and runs water into the base, then hums and no action. If I move the dial around the water then emtpties out, refills, opens the powder door etc. Just no washing action. How do I...

Hello, if you have a leak within the base water would go in and then it would activate the drain pump which also would not allow the washing motor to activate due to the leak. Also if the heater in the unit is not working as well the unit would let water go into the machine and then stop as well the wash motor would not activate due to the heater being at fault. Click this link this is a simular situation as well to what you are experiencing with your dishwasher if you have any questions message me back check the float switch and the heater is one of the first things that you would look at as the problem area in the machine. I await your reply Thanks

My lower wash arm is not spinning. I have disassembled everything that I could below the lower wash arm and cleaned the mineral deposits and old detergent residue off of everything. I have re-assembled...

The water flows from the sump and is forced through the sump by the motor that is attached to the sump assembly click on this link to see the schematic for that area of the unit part number 6 which is termed as a wash impell is what pushes the wash water through as well as part number 7 which is the accumulator of the unit if the impell or impellar is spining properly and you have cleaned the lower wash arm of all deposits and when you put the arm back on by screwing down part number 1 and then you spun the arm and it did spin freely the issue would then be within the sump some do choose to replace piece by piece of the sump assembly personally I found it much cheaper to just buy the entire sump and replace it as a kit which comes with a new motor as well then to replace piece by piece of the sump assembly in the unit . Make sure that the motor to the unit is running when the unit goes into the wash cycle if the motor is not running then this would be why the water is not flowing to the wash arm also if the arm does not spin properly then you would also have an issue with the water coming out of the arm as well. If you choose you can try to replace the wash impell which is part number 99002659 and if your looking for the best priceing I would use this company they tend to be alot cheaper then the other appliance companies I find If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

PROBLEM: Unit will start, fill with water, wait through normal cycle time, then drain. Unit does not perform washing (arms spinning & spraying water, etc.) cycle.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The problem is that the control detects that the motor is not running and so drains water directly after filling it. If you hear a hum sound from the bottom panel then it is the motor that is bad, if you don't hear any sound and still the unit performs same way then first thing to check is the motor, and then check the control as even a bad relay in control can cause this issue. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Soap is not disolving. Falls out of holder and stays on door and floor of washer.

Are dishes also not coming clean? Most likely, there is not enough water chruning in the tub to rinse soap out of cup during wash cycle. Sufficient wash action will wash the soap out of the cup and dissolve it in the water within a few seconds of the cup opening.

Most likely causes are:

Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)

Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.

New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.

Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.

If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.

Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.

Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.

Hope this help. Good luck.
