Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Defy dishmaid dishwasher does not start wash cycle. Several attempts to reset dishwasher has been done. Machine has been unplugged for several days and switched on again and still does not work. The start/stop switch have been kept in for about 5 - 10 seconds to reset. When the machine is set to do washing, the water enters the machine and wash light shows green and machine remains like that with water inside the machine. The start/stop button is again pressed for 5 -10 seconds to drain the water. What could be the problem?

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

SOURCE: Kitchenaide KUDM24SE1 dishwasher will not fill with water

It may be the water inlet valve or the electronic control board. To check, remove the bottom toe panel. The valve will be on the left side. There will be live power, so use extreme CAUTION. Start the DW, 1. if you can hear the valve humming or the valve coil is getting warm, replace the valve. 2. Using a device with wires to check the power at plugs, connect to valve power connection, if power is present, replace valve else replace electronic control board.

Well, I fixed it in my case, by opening it up and taking a look. It seems that water was leaking out of the main compartment into the guts of the machine and shorting out a solenoid (I think). In my case, the water was leaking at the location where the 'water hardness adjustment' knob/screw is. This is in the middle of the left inside wall. (Take a look at your manual)
This may or may not be the problem in your cases, but it certainly produced the same symptoms. You need to be somewhat technically inclined to do this, and ABOVE ALL, make sure the dishwasher is off, unplugged and the water supply is turned off before going any further...
You start by taking off the top 'preparation surface' o the dishwasher by lifting two plastic clips at the back of the machine and sliding the top backwards and off. Next, by removing the left cover plate of the dishwasher (there are screws at the back, top and front of the machine), you expose a large flatish plastic device about 150x300x15mm that is responsible for dividing up the incoming water to add salt to one portion and then presumably recombine the water. This is held in place by two clips on the left side and the large ring around the water hardness adjustment screw on the inside of the machine. Twist off the ring and give the plastic thing a good pull to loosen it from the black tar-like stuff. Once it is free, you'll see a black o-ring that seals the joint between the plastic device and the main compartment. In my case, this was full of gunk and not sealing properly. I gave it a good clean and refitted the whole assembly. For good measure I also checked the clips securing the hoses connecting to the plastic device and made sure they were sound.
There is an electrical connection to what I think is a solenoid below the plastic device described above at the bottom of the machine. In my case, water was dripping down on top of the electrics when the machine took in water and I guess must have shorted out the solenoid, bringing the whole water delivery process to a halt. This created the mpression that the machine would fill up with water and go no further. I gave the whole area a good dry with a cloth. I also had to tilt the whole machine and allow the water that had, over the last few days acumulated inside, to drain out. 
When everything was dry, I put back the cover plate, plugged the machine in and turned the water on and tested with a rinse, then a number 3 wash another three times. Everything worked fine.
Please be very careful when working with machines like this. Electricity and water don't really mix. I advise if you are not qualified that you ask a suitably qualified person to do the job for you.
Good luck.

I suspect for either of these units that the timer control boards are bad.

SOURCE: Continuous draining - unable to reset - all lights on

Cut power for minutes, and see if this can stop and reset the machine.

If the machine does not reset, then you need to test the pump and valve solenoid, to ensure it is not stuck on drain position, by energizing the solenoid.

If the pump solenoid is fine, and pump opens and close, then the problem is usually the control panel, rarely can also be a contact on wiring harness to the pump.

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.


Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Whirlpool Dishwasher machine (Mod. ADG 8970/1) wont start. Water is taken in. After several attempts to start an error code "F4" appeared.


Hello Sir,
This error code, " F4 " comes only when the waste outlet is totally clogged with waste and blocked. Try to dismantle the machine and locate the Waste outlet pipe and thoroughly clean it. This will reset the error which is caused.

Thank you Sir, 
Have a nice day.

No water enters the inside of the dishwasher and the motor makes a sound as if under strain. It was working perfectly and then sudenly started leaking from underneath. Could not locate the leak yet. Old...


it is leaking from the seal above the motor in the centre bottom of your machine also check the door seal they tend to leak on older machines as well
