Could be a few problems here. The main one may be the timer. Generally the timer will tell each part to do what it needs to do and when, if it is not closing relays then you get a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. I would also check the pump to make sure it is operating properly. But I would venture a guess at the timer being the main problem.
its probably leaving water in it and is clogged in the elecric pum or drain hose. somethins the pump has a rubber flap that will become lodged in the outlet port. this will cause dirty water to be left in the machine because of a slow drain. start by looking at the volume of water coming into garbage disposal where drain hose hooks up.
Your dishwasher's drain pump is not designed to work until the water is completely drained but rather in sync with the timer. The motor will stop when the timer stops no matter how much water is left inside the machine. In your case, either of the following is causing the trouble:
There's a part clogging in the drain line.
A debris is caught in the drain pump impeller.
Drain valve is not opening completely.
Worn belt if your washer uses a belt to drive the pump.
Here's the remedy to each of them:
Remove the drain line to clear
any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line
connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
The drain pump is usually mounted directly
to the motor and attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove
the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support to
reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Look
for the wash impeller, which forces the water through the
spray arm. Beneath it is the drain impeller, which is
similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. Clear the drain impeller from any debris that prevent it from pumping out water properly.
Sometimes the drain valve solenoid or the diverting lever
sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining properly. Lubricate the lever to free it up. Replace it otherwise.
If your machine uses a belt to drive the pump, the belt may have been worn and cannot drive the pump properly. Replace the belt if that is the case.
my dishwasher starts off with good intentions then a couple of minutes later it starts beeping non stop.I open the door to find it has turned on to the rinse cycle and will not do its job.I continue to start it again and then it repeats the problem again.Can you help?
It sounds like your dishwasher is doing everything normal EXCEPT washing. The unit fills properly, the timer advances properly, the unit drains and goes through a rinse cycle, plus the water is heating. I would check your main wash pump for obstructions that may be clogging it, or if it is not running at all, you need to check the interconnecting wiring and/or something in the wash pump circuit that would prevent it from running. There should be a wiring diagram/tech sheet located behind the lower kick panel under the door. I hope this helps some. Good luck and let me know what you find.
On another site, someone posted this: "I called (website), where it was purchased from, and they gave me the number for the manufacturer. Some standard troubleshooting did the trick and my dishwasher is working perfectly again. The troubleshooting involved tilting the dishwasher backwards at a 45-degree angle and letting any excess water drain out. They said ocassionally the water intake will be blocked and this process helps move anything that may have gotten in the way"
I was having the beeping problem too, and decided to give it a try, tipped it for a few, and found it to work!!! Hope this maybe helps!
