When I start my dishwasher it start to run then it stop and flashes se code what causes that


If your dishwasher is displaying error code 5E, It can be caused by a kinked drain hose.
If the drain hose is kinked, there will be an excessive amount of water in the bottom of your dishwasher after a cycle has been completed.
In order to access the drain hose you need access to the back of the dishwasher. If your dishwasher was recently installed, contact the installer to move the dishwasher and inspect the drain hose.
If the drain hose is not kinked, but your dishwasher is still not draining, service is required.

My gaggenau dishwasher GM 954-110 is not working. when i switch it on the display panel shows 2H.


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The dishwasher you're speaking of (provided it is indeed a Gaggenau GM954) is built by Bosch as you may or may not know.

To address your concern regarding the 2H in the display actually needs to be done in two parts. I'll start with the basic info associated with the 2H displayed.

This can be simply indicating the previous cycle exceeded a 2 hour wash cycle, not necessarily an error and can be attributed with too cold water entering the dishwasher (below the recommended 120F), a longer than normal drain time (due to partial blockages, kink etc. hence longer time needed to complete the cycle) or inproper water circulation during the cycle.

Aside from these issues, it (2H) can also mean the unit has a heating error and if left long enough will show another error of "1" in the display, extremely long wash times, etc.

**The first thing I'd suggest before attempting any repair is running an additional cycle while making sure the water inlet is hot (120F optimum) and the unit does indeed drain fine.

**A fair indication of proper draining is to start a cycle and once washing begins (2-3 minutes) activate the "cancel" and the unit should adequately drain in the 2 minute time allowance.

**To identify proper water circulation, place an empty cup in the upright position in the top rack, start a cycle and inspect the cup after 2-3 minutes and it should be full of water.

After trying and posting the results of these thing's we can move forward with potential heating errors, the cause, and how to remedy them. Let me know what you find and I'll continue to assist you in any manner possible going forward. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

Drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance


The machine probably has water in the base (not visibly in the machine, but in the base where the conponents are). Pull the machine out, sit the front on a large towel and holding the back of the d/w pull it towards you. Any water trapped in the base will drain out. It may be a fair amount as the flood safety switch will activate on approx 1.5 ltrs. Once you've cleared the water run a prewash or quickwash to check d/w. Hope this helps.

I have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher which runs the drain pump constantly even with the door open and despite there being now water in the machine at the cycle wont start. I have checked the warer amtrix and...


I am not sure about this model but most models run a drain cycle for a set period at the start of a wash cycle and then move on to normal filling and cycle of machine provided the various switches are at the low level it will carry on to its set cycle,is the apartment or flood switch ok?

We put in a new garbage disposal and now our dishwasher wont workit starts each cycle we suggest, but the water does not run and the cycle does not move forward


Hi, Does the drain hose for your dishwasher connect to the disposer ? If so, has the knock out for the drain tube in the disposer been "knocked out" ? Check that and reply. We'll move forward from there if need be. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

My dishwasher will not drain. I have cleaned the filters and don't know what else to do. Help!


first make sure your hose is not kinked, second try a different cycle. the very first thing it should do is drain a bit of water out before it starts filling. if it still isn't working then the drain pump is messed up or a wire maybe fell off ( which happens from the vibrations). be careful around electricity and water ... not a good combination!!!

Cycle stops, won't drain


This is either a bad timer or a bad heat sensor. On most cycles that call for the water to be heated it will pause the timer and continue washing/heating until the sensor is satisfied the water is hot enough. Try selecting a quick, delicate, or china cycle without heated rinse or dry. If it works this way the timer is fine but the sensor is bad. Sometimes cold water to the machine will cause this problem because the machine is not capable of totallly heating cold water. It is only designed to boost the temp. Make sure you run hot water at the sink before you start the machine.
