Lamona dishwasher - all indicator lights are on but the machine does not start. Unable to change programme as all lights stay on. Have switched off from the mains thinking that the programme might need to reset itself - no difference.

there is a pressure stat but these are reliable. a common fault is the wiring loom broken where it goes round the corner at the bottom of the door. take outer door panel off and inspect the wiring loom for breakage

You can try reseting the machine buy holging down outside two cycle buttons for 3 seconds, then release. After a minute the end light should come on. Then use as normal. If this fails pull the unit out, then take of the side panels (screws to the front in the seal) & check the red anti-flood float on the left side of the machine, to make sure it is not up activating the cut out switch. This may be due to the machine leaking somewhere and the float raises and activates the switch, or as in my case a build up of limscale has raised it up enough to activate it.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: i have a bosch sgs53c12 dishwasher and the water

Hello- Bosch installed an anti-flood device in bottom of unit. If water gets into this area ( from a leak, usually). To get water out, tip backwards, then forward. Use a couple of towels- water should come out. Common problem with these units. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed.- Thanks- Ed

Zanussi dishwasher ZDF601M 1 in 3 red light comes on and programme doesn't work through


26269906-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-0.jpg "3 in 1" function
This appliance is equipped with the "3 in 1" function, that
allows the use of the "3 in 1" combi detergent tablets.
This function can be selected with all washing programmes.
With the selection of this function the inflow of rinse aid and
salt from each respective supply container is automatically
deactivated and also the indicator lights for salt and rinse aid
are deactivated.
Select the "3 in 1" function before the set of a washing
programme.
Once this option is selected (indicator light illuminated) it will
remain active also for the following washing programmes.
With the use of the "3 in 1" function, the cycle durations may
change. In this case, in the digital display, the indication of the
running time of the programme is automatically updated.
NOTE: Once the programme is running, the "3 in 1" function
can NO longer be changed. If you want to exclude the "3 in 1"
function you have to cancel the programme setting (see
chapter "Starting a washing programme" - "Cancel a washing
programme in progress") and then deactivate the "3 in 1"
function.
In this case you have to set a washing programme (and
options) again.

Activation/deactivation of the "3 in 1" function
(The dishwasher must be switched off)

1. Press the On/Off button. The On/Off indicator light
illuminates (setting mode).If a programme button indicator light is on, this means that a washing programme is set. The programme must be cancelled: press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3
for about 2 seconds. All the indicator lights will turn off (except for the On/Off indicator light and eventually salt and rinse aid indicator lights) indicating that the set programme has been cancelled and the machine is now in setting mode.

2. Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3, until the
indicator lights of function buttons 1, 2, 3 and 4 start
flashing.

3. Press function button 4, the indicator lights of function
buttons 1, 2 and 3 turn off while the indicator light of function
button 4 goes on flashing.

4. Press function button 4 again, the "3 in 1" indicator light
illuminates, indicating that the "3 in 1" function is active.
To deactivate the function press function button 4 again, the
indicator light turns off.

5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by
pressing the On/Off button or wait about 60 seconds after
which the dishwasher will automatically return to setting
mode.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

When I start the normal 50 button, the top and middle lights blink three times. Then after few seconds the normal 50 and bottom lights start to blink


Start the wash programme
1. Check that when the dishes and cutlery are loaded in the dishwasher
the spray arms are free to rotate.
2. Open the water tap fully.
3. Shut the door.
4. Press the ON/OFF button. ON/OFF button indicator comes on.
5. Press the button for the programme required (see "Programme Table"). The programme indicator lights up. One or two lights will flash in the multi-display. During this time it is possible to reselect the programme. The selected washing programme begins after approx. 6 seconds. The current wash programme stage will always be shown in the multi-display.
3 If the top light and/or the middle light in the multi-display flash after
the programme has started please read the section "What to do, if...".

Lamona (Howdens) dishwasher. Start/Cancel/Pause button is not working.


Probably a bit late for the original poster, but I found this page after searching with the same problem. You can actually fix this yourself. I had exactly the same problem - if you take the front off the dishwasher, the switch module is inside a grey plastic moulding. If you remove the two cable plugs and remove the two screws holding the moulding in you can then take it out. Carefully open it by pulling back the clips, and inside is a small circuit board that slides out. On one side are the two microswitches. I got mine working again with some switch cleaner. If that doesn't work, you should be able to get a new switch soldered on by any electrical repairer. Obviously, yours may be slightly different as I don't know what model dishwasher you have, but mine is a Howden's/Lamona too, so it's probably very similar. Good luck.

I have a F&P dishwasher model DW60CDX1 (around 5 years old) which we cannot start a cycle. The dishwasher turns on (power button and all programme indicators light up) but when you press a programme...


The micro switch in the door which senses the door closing has probably failled. This is accessible once the inner door cover is removed. Switch should be under $10 from electrical store. Or buy through appliance manufacturer.

The start light is flashing on and off and the programmer wont change to another programme it stays on the normal programme and the dishwasher will not start


Seems to be relatively common. Ma doing one now with that exact problem. If you hold button in for about 10 seconds, it should reset.(switch off then on again to push start.). If same action continues, the electronic module needs to be replaced.

Mine was doing exactly the same. I turned off power, held down the 2 black buttons on right, switched back on and the start button flashes intermittently. It then allowed me to change programs, just testing it now!! It started, this was more then it was doing!! lol
