Re: machine constantly runs

Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new

How do I run a self diagnostic on Bosch Classic Electronic SGU53E75AU/86?

Before going to the controller it might be better to verify the heater or thermostat (NTC).
If you want to know the part details refer this schematic

It is interactive and you can switch between assembly drawings and parts lists. The heater and thermostat are drawing 4.

Hotpoint dwf61p dishwasher trips house rcd immediately when the on switch is pressed

Do you have an control board or a timer? Control board is touch panel time is a knob the you turn to start dishwasher. Most likely what is going on in you have melted wired where they connect to dishwasher.
To check/ correct
Turn dhishwasher off at breaker. Unplug dishwasher also if you can. The bottom of your dishwasher on the outside in front at bottom. There is an access panel usually requires 1/4 inch nut driver or phillips screw.driver. Remove panel. To the right side you will notice a silver square plate that has wires running into it. Remove the 1 screw usually on left with 1/4 inch nut driver. Examine the wires. Any kind of melting or scorch marks. If scorch marks are present. If you have an outlet the the dishwasher plugs into than replace cord. If its hardwaired ( ran directly from dishwasher to circuit breaker. Cut wire back make sure you dont cut too much. Remove all scorch marked wires and take off a little bit more to be safe. Reconnect wires use wire caps and electrical tape. After you finish this if the problem still persist contact a certified electrician you change the breaker and test the wiring.

I have read about problems with the cycle not advancing or getting stuck on an SHU303 Bosh dishwasher. I have this problem intermittently. Usually when the dial is at the 6pm position, and lately during...

Hello Brien, First let me start by apologizing for the difficulty you've had here at FixYa. It is unfortunate the assistance (or lack of) was not helpful or specific to your inquiry, but I'd like to attempt to make amends. I am quite familiar with your model and in fact have serviced Bosch for around 15yrs. When you receive the timer (It is very rare to need one in a Bosch, more likely stat on the inside door panel) I'd be more than willing to guide you through the process and I will even send you a complimentary service manual if you provide an email address. I will understand if you have closed the door on any further input from "experts" here at FixYa but will do what I can to help if you're open. Sorry once again and good luck going forward. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Candy cs455m programe stops at about 3oclock on the dial

Yes heatr should be submerged in the water. Not expose to free air.Check the water level float switch or the pressure switch.

The replace timer should be identical in design. If there is a mismatch it will not function as designed.

If it is elctronic micro controller type the same part no and soft ware version should be used.

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem

I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

Beko washing machine

hi there.......this problem could be caused by a failed heater element ...if the element is not heating the machine will just wash wash etc...the front panel will have to be removed to check the heater element....if the element is ok...check the heater NTC ( little white plug in the heater element)...if all ok here....then you have a main PCB board failure....

it may be more economic to have beko send an engineer to you...

The likely cause of this is a failed heater element which would cause the fuse to blow. You will need to get the heater element checked out and replaced if necessary. A visual inspection of the element may reveal the problem jf not an electrical test will be necessary. Be sure to switch off the power before touching the heater element.

Have a model 665.17602301

On my own dishwasher the cycles are controlled by the temperature - the machine washes until the water reaches a certain temp and then it pumps out and goes on to the next bit of the program. If yours is based on the same principle and isn't heating the water that would explain things.
I wouldn't replace the board yet - I would first try to find out why it isn't heating. It could be the heating element, the relay or the temp sensor (if fitted) at fault.

If you are technically inclined and know enough to delve into the machine safely you could check the heater connections, resistance voltage etc and hope to spot the fault. Let me know what you or the engineer find. D

Dishwasher stopping mid program

sometimes machines stop to heat the water. does your machine ever start again?
if it does not start on its own, it could be a time issue, or a heater element issue. if it calls for heat and it never heats, it will never run.
if it ever drains, then the issue is not the pump. its a logic board.
good luck

Miele G892 SC dishwasher not heating/cycle won't stop

Miele have cold inlet only. Either element is open circuit, or the relay that switches the element has failed. My money would be on the element first, then the relay. The machine will sit in that mode forever as it is waiting for the temperature of the water to reach a certain temp before telling the electronic unit to move to the next part of the wash. If you need assistance in how to test & how to get to these parts just let me know. But you will need an ohm meter to test the element. Regards
