Dishwasher not working

I have a two drawer diswasher where the bottom draw has stopped working. It starts a cycle, then after approx. 1 minute the screen goes red and it beeps. When I open the drawer there is water in the bottom and it will not do a full cycle. Each time I need to turn the power button off and try again with the same problem. The top drawer is not washing the dishes properly. Please help

Re: Dishwasher not working

Have got the problem sorted. Water got into the control panel which changed the setting for the water pressure. Have now re set the setting and our dish washer is back up and running as normal. If anyone else has the same problem... I will not down the way to amend the setting.

I suggest that when unloading your dish drawer, that you wipe the control panel dry after every use to stop water getting into it.

Hope this helps others.

Re: Dishwasher not working

I had this unit given to me by a builder and they cut the power cord upon removal.Is there a certain plug (FP) I should use or can I just go to Home Depot and pick one up with the proper rating?

Re: Dishwasher not working

Hi there Fishgirl, Is your machine intergated with your kitchen or does it have a factory finish. If it is intergrated when the product stops open the drawer and tell me which wash cycle is lit. If it is a factory finish product, ie Stainless steel, does any fault code come up on the display screen on the front of the drawer. Kind Regards Carmen

3 problems: 1. lower drawer is hard to close; seems to be sticking on something. 2. lower drawer retains water (2 inches) after completing a cycle. 3. F1 fault code on both drawers with alert...

ok where to start, first thing the bottom draw is hard to close because they use 2 little motors on either side to pull a lid with a seal on it down on top of each draw when u start it to keep the water in, if its hard to close the motors are damaged and arnt lifting the lid back up when the cycle finishes making it hard to open and shut, now the F1 fault means the filter circuit board in the base of the machine has been activated basically a flood sensor (and controls minor components ie lid actuators), the unit should beep and flash and go spaztic and you should hear the drain pump come on continuously til u turn it off at the wall thats its way of trying to stop a leak by removing any water it can but will not actually remove the water from the base where the switch is, you will probably find it will work now as the water will have dried and stopped triggering the switch but wont stay like that for long, that machine has major issues its leaking bad from somewhere and id say it leaked onto the lid motors and fried em, the parts you will most probably have to replace is the filter board in the base, both bottom draw lid actuators (small motors), probably the bottom draw lid if you damaged the seal pulling the draw in and out and whatever is leaking and if any other componets where damaged by water, so if its outta warranty id go buy a new 1 with 5 year extended warranty

Dishwasher stops mid cycle


Do the foll. things:

1)Check if there is water on the bottom pan. Remove the panel down on the backside of the machine and look. If it's water there, wipe it well up with a towel or so. 2)if ur dishwasher doesn't starts then: First, check the usual suspects: Make sure the circuit breaker isn’t tripped and that the wires at dishwasher’s power junction box aren’t burnt. If all that checks out, then go right to the control panel area.
Asko dishwashers have had problems with the wiring in the control panel area burning or melting– very messy. While your problem may not be as dramatic as that, the problem may still be visible. You may find burnt or discolored wire terminals or the spades on the start button switch may be burnt– anything burnt or discolored has to be replaced. You can buy any replacement parts you need right here.

Drawer won't open and get beep code 2 short 1 long

The drawer door seal is locked in. This could be either because the controller has lost power or the seal actuator motor is faulty.

You will have to force open the drawer before you can do anything. (Turn off the mains power when you work on the dishwasher)

Let me know if you can handle electric/ mechanical repairs so that I can guide you further. Otherwise you should call a technician. If you are getting beeps then most likely the door seal system is the problem.
Are you able to use the top drawer?

Rinse cycle on top drawer keeps turning on

You have a leak due to the Lid seal leak.
1- Unplug the power, then pull out top draw half way and
2-Touch the bottom top housing ( not bottom top draw) you will feel it wet. Try to dry it by stick in a towel.
3- Repeat the same for the bottom drawer.
After drying out, wait for at least 1 day so the sensor can be dried out then plug in the Power, you will be fine.
4- Contact me for the next step.

F 1 Error, blinking, beeping and will not stop even when turned off, so we had to turn the circuit breaker off to stop the noise.

You have a leak.
Either from the top lid seal or bottom lid seal. A s time goes by the water level activates the sensor causing the beep. It won't do anything until you fix the leak.

Dishwasher will turn off

Mami, first see if you can put it through a test cycle by pressing the heated dry button six times and then press start. 88 will display. This will test all the funtions of the dishwasher. Let it do it's thing for approx. 20 minutes. Wash motor should run. If it doesn't call for warranty service so you don't void it. It's possible something got messed up during installation. back.
