Re: dishwasher fault

If you have tried to run any cycle and still end up with this problem, then most likely a failed timer unit. The next step is for the water switch to enact the next step which is to start the timer.

I have Hobard LXIH dishwasher, it is working OK but during rinse cycle instead of taking in rinse agent it is actually fill rinse bottle back with water. Rinse pump is working, it was replaced in June

Check the rinse pump. The tubing needs to come from the supply into the bottom of the pump, and the pump should be running clockwise. If the pump tube is worn, the rinse pressure will blow through the pump filling the bottle

After rinse fill the pump will not start

Hello, is there water in the bottom of your dishwasher? If there is water in bottom. Then try running the dishwasher throught another washing cycle. Now, if there is not water in the bottom of your dishwasher. Then the dishwasher has finished its washing cycle, rinsing the cleaned dishes. GB...stewbison

In my dishwasher Whirpool ADP 8967 after the washing cycle start the drying cycle when start it I got the error F7 and the machine stop the cycle. Can some one help me?

Hi simone_b_630,

F7 is known as a fill fault.

1) Remove the filters and the mesh filter, clean out the black grid in the bowl carefully. Don't burst the membrane inside it.

2) Try the machine again after resetting it. (Reset it by holding the start button for 8 - 10 seconds)

3) If the fault persists, take off the left hand panel and unplug the flow-meter, located bottom front of the large plastic water matrix.

4) Plug it back on, reset the machine and try it again.

Also make sure the fill hose isn't kinked and that water is actually entering the machine.

* If you found this solution helpful, please rate 4 thumbs up and leave a small testimonial. :-)

Our dishwasher runs through wash cycles normally, but doesn't seem to do a very good job. The soap dispenser doesn't even rinse out on the power scrub setting. I see nothing plugged at the bottom screens....

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Your machine, is not filling with the proper amount of water, or not filling at the door during a wash, if you see lots of water in the bottom, you may have a pump problem.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response, thanks and good luck

Hi, After the first cycle, and after it drains/spins, does it start agitating when the next load of water is suppose to be filling?
Please let me know so I can assist you further. Sounds like the pressure hoe from the tub to the water level switch is plugged.

E4 fault code

Hi, when a dishwasher goes into overfill mode it usually means that the bottom tray has water in it that operates a float connected to a microswitch. Open the bottom panel and soak up all water then check to make sure the float is down completely.then restart dishwasher. Why it has overfilled is another problem. It could be a faulty pressure switch,pressure switch hose may have a hole in it, water valve may be faulty. Too much soap or wrong soap can cause too many suds and hence overfill.Also if rinse aid is spilt when filling. Or seals leaking. etc.

Dishwasher keeps tripping electric

Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwash
If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
