Since water doesn't drain out ,it could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

I have a SHV. My sink drain backed up, and the water accumulating in the sink then migrated to the dishwasher, through the drain pipe, causing the dishwasher to fill up and, it turned out, overflow a little. When I turned on the dishwasher, the water drained, but no new, clean water came through the hot water pipe. The drain just kept running, but nothing else happened.

Here's what happened. Under the main chamber of the dishwasher, by three inches or more, is a white plastic tray. It sits almost at the floor, and it may not be obvious that it's a tray capable of holding water. The overflow water spilled into that tray, which in turn caused a float in the far left side of the tray to lift (the way a toilet float lifts when the water fills in a toilet tank) and shut off the water intake valve (like the toilet float shuts off the toilet water flow). So long as that valve is closed, your machine will not run.

STOP: disconnect power supply at this point for safety.

To see the white plastic tray and thereby fix the problem, you'll need to take off the BLACK TOE-KICK (attached on my unit by two star-head screws at its bottom) and, possibly , the OUTER PANEL OF THE DISHWASHER DOOR (in my case, a custom wood panel (attached by a few screws through the inner side of the door, two screws that are accessed by popping off little--smaller than a dime size--covers on the sides of the doors, and then the door panel lifts up and out). (I took the outer panel off, but I can't remember if I would have had to reach into the white tray without doing so.)

Once you do that, you can see the white plastic tray. It doesn't come out--at least not without removing the entire machine--so try this. You can take your fingers and feel over and into the tray. You'll probably feel the water--I did. Look at the far left of the tray with a flashlight. Back there you'll see a flat, round, 3-inch diameter piece of white plastic sitting at the bottom of the tray. To its center is a generally U-shaped lever looking device, which, at its far left end, is connected to a red stick pointing up into the machine. When water goes into the tray, the float rises, causing the U-shaped lever to rise, causing the red stick to raise, which (though I couldn't see it) causes an electrical signal to run to, and shut, the valve for your water intake.

I took paper towels, and then a narrowly cut sponge, to sop up the water in the tray. I then took my shop vac and, using it as a blower, blew what little water was left right out. You might be able to use a hair dryer, but first sop out what you can or it'll take forever. Once you've done that, put everything back together and plug your dishwasher back in. My buttons are at the top panel. To reset, hold down the two buttons marked for clear drain for three seconds and release. You should be able to start up then. It took 15 seconds before the water started to run, but it did and the machine works fine again.

Interesting note: The valve that stopped the water from flowing in automatically opened once I got the water out of the tray. You don't need to reset the valve.

Good luck.

Hi.

You may have brooken the door switch.

Try tripping the circuit breaker. With power off check that there is no water inside the machine, and eventually remove water.
Restart the machine with door closed and try starting a cycle.

If that does not work, then the door lock switch is probably damaged. The switch is tested by a technician by jumping its contacts.

If the machine does not restart after the procedure described above, call F&P at the number listed on the owners manual to get the appliance repaired.

Regards.

Ginko.

Dishwasher Repair Guide: How To Fix a Dishwasher - ACME HOW TO.com
http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net/ecart/item.php?item_id=244
sounds to me as though you have a main controller or indeed some sensor has failed, with this symptom is it a bit hard to exactly pin it down.. The best thing to do if you wish to DIY, is obtain a service and repair manual, and work through the troubleshooting steps to isolate your issue with a view to repair, also the SM has parts numbers too.
The below may NOT apply to you... however it has helped many many times...so if you think it is worth a try... give it a go.. nothing to loose?
so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

SOURCE: Hi Indesit IDL700 Dishwasher. Stopped mid cycle by

The main processor was interuppted and so has hung up or is faulty. Remove the main plug and press on the control pad of the washing machine to drain off any residual voltage that is remaining on the main board and which seems to have hung up the processor.When the plug is plugged in and switch please hold down the start/stop button.
If there is no result after plugging in the machine then the main controller board is a suspect. You can remove the control board and check the connectors, check the main door switch , if possible clean the connectors/ contacts as a last chance.

Hi, my Siemens iq500 dishwasher cuts out mid cycle usually towards the second half of the cycle, it switches off and some times the display indicates the period of time remaining of the incomplete cycle....


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you had a bad thermostat and then blew the thermal fuse.

These parts are in the back of your washer, The thermal fuse is on you hot air duct and your thermal fuse is on the opposite side.
It could look like the following:

FDB4315LFC2 runs then stops and flashes pf ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB4315LFC2, starts and then stops, and flashes a "PF" code when it stops. The "PF" code is stating that there has been a power failure. There could be a possibility that your dishwasher is losing power mid-cycle. I suggest checking your home's circuit breaker, the wiring to your dishwasher, and if you have a cut-off switch, checking that as well. I also suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 20-30 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. If further troubleshooting is needed, I ask that you please let me know the error codes displayed on your appliance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Caple dishwasher stops & beeps continually before finishing 60 degree cycle


Thanks for clarifying the model number. See the user manual at this site. You can download and save it for future.

http://www.caple.co.uk/downloads/manuals/dishwashers/di414-di440_dishwasher-manual.pdf

But I don't think this will help you in the problem. It is very likely that the thermal limiter relay is faulty. It is meant to protect the dishwasher from over heating. It must be cutting before 60deg.

You can see the circuit diagram of a related Capel model on this page.

Dishwasher contuallycuts out through entire run cycle


Hi Andrew - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. Wait roughly ten minutes and turn on the dishwasher. Confirm that the door is properly latched and try selecting a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: wiring failure, damaged cord, faulty door latch assembly or control board. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the washer to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Wash cycle stopped with water in the bottom. Seems like there is no power. Can't get lights on cycles buttons to turn on. Power button does nothing. Checked circuit breakers. All are on. Lights and outlets...


Check the wiring in the units junction box. Its located at the bottom right corner. You will likely find melted connectors. If so, you need to cut the wires back and replace these connectors. Make sure you turn the power off before doing any of this work of course. Good Luck.

Dishwasher during normal cycle gets hung up and does not advance


HI. this is just a control fault. you can try to reset the core program by unplugging this unit for 5 minutes. this will drain all power and reset the core on the timer/control.

If you experience the same situation after this reset, simply replace the control/timer module.
