Dishwasher short cycles and shots off

My dishwasher only runs for two minutes and shuts off, no matter what cycle it is set for. The control board was replaced and it still does the same thing. I was told that there is a series of codes that can be used to reset the board. Is this true and what would they be? Is this even the problem?

Re: dishwasher short cycles and shots off

Batty, you can put the dishwasher in a automatic test mode or manual test mode. For automatic press the heavy wash key 5 times followed by the start key. 88 should show in the display if you have the digital display. It's going to check the wash motor, fill valve, drain motor, soap dispenser, vent and heater automatically. If any of these systems fail, you will get a code. The test will finish by itself. You can get the information to test the touch panel by getting the tech sheet from behind the bottom toe panel. back.

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.

in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

it is likely the heater or thermostat are faulty. Try to run in short cycle like rinse which works on cold water.

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. Check the tutorial and the video for checking this part.

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace timer/electronic control board.

Hobart LXIH stuck in Wash mode after running multiple loads. Shutting off breaker for several hours fixes problem until multiple loads have been run again and then it is once more stuck in Wash mode.

How long does it stay in the wash cycle? Indefinitely? Does the display continuously show "WASH"?. If it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely (i.e. continuously shows "WASH" for significantly beyond approx. 3 minutes), it's probably a control board malfunction. If it continues to wash after the "WASH" indicator goes out, it could be a shorted wash motor relay on the relay board or a fauly control board.

If the internal rinse water booster heater doesn't reach it's programmed setpoint temperature in time, the dishwasher will run an extended wash cycle to give the booster heater more time to finish heating the rinse water. If this is what's happening, the wash cycle would last approximately 3 minutes, then it would rinse regardless of whether the booster heater has finished heating or not.

The booster temperature thermistor may be bad, giving a false booster temperature reading, causing an extended wash cycle as described above. The booster heater elements or contactor may be bad, preventing the booster heater from heating and reaching proper temperature, also causing the same extended wash cycle to give the booster more time to heat.

Heating Element Won't Turn Off

Ok, this is a control fault that may be corrected by shutting the power off for 5 minutes. this will reset the chip set on the control board. plug the unit back into the socket after the 5 minute ait and check to see if the element is still on. If so, replace the control board.

Another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

Under cycle setting the quick rinse light keeps flashing and dishwasher does not run.

Hey Jim, if your model starts with 665 there was a service flash on this unit concerning your problem. SF-22-715. Dishwasher stops in mid cycle. The control board was redesigned to eliminate this problem. The service flash states that if only one indicator light is blinking it's usually a stuck or shorted keypad. I would check with Sears and see if you are covered under this service flash. back.
