Start light flashing,rince light on.machine will not start cycle


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from the symptoms you're describing, it sounds like the drain pump is jammed. A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump first to remove any stagnant water sitting in the bottom of the pump. Then, fresh water is let into the tub, fills to the proper amount, then the main pump starts. The lights flashing are an error code--different combinations of buttons flashing mean different things. On some models, a button light will flash a certain number of times, pause, then flash another number of times. This is a binary code telling the user what is malfunctioning. That's why I need the model number and any other info to help diagnose the issue. Thanks!

No sign of life to our 5 year old D/W except flashing "CLEAN" L.E.D.


7-1 heating circuit problem control programmed to shut down machine when no rise in water temp during heat cycle, you either have an open heating element or wire burnt a shorted thermistor or a bad control not outputing 120VAC to the heater you can reset the control by placing the machine into diagnostic hit cancel button to turn off all the lights press heated dry-normal, heated dry- normal within 6 seconds lights should come on press cancel unit should start it will run till same part of cycle reached and lock out again if it has not been removed the little black panel below the door remove should have the tech sheet in a plastic pouch which explains how to check the components mentioned earlier,

Clean light flashing continuously. machine wont start.


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Trying to start the unit but the washing light indicator only flashes.


this means the machine has started the cycle...that is the washing light is flashing. However if nothing happens then the drain pump is not working firstly. Machines usually drain first any bit of left over water then go yo fill up. As you havent ststed the make and model i assume the drain pump is faulty. or the water inlet is not working. More precise info is needed to advise you further

My dishwasher is not working


sounds like your drain pump may be blocked.
check to see if waste drainpipe is blocked,
if not try and see if your can get machine to drain into a bucket.
if not drain pump may have something blocking it internally if machine has a filter clean it out, if no filter remove drain pump a clean it out or replace if faulty.

Hello , The inlet/drain light on my dishwasher is flashing , I have mislaid the manual can you explain how I can rectify the problem please , I am assuming something is blocked. Regards Georgina Cooke


My G892SC is almost 10 years old and recently had the same problem. The machine seemed to be stuck in the drain cycle and the intake/drain light flashed. I called Miele and ran through a few diagnostic tests but nothing worked. I had a Miele certified technician come out to look at the problem and he told me the drain pump needed to be replaced and that it would cost about $500 for the part and labor. While researching the cost of a new dishwasher, I stumbled on some online discussions about this problem and someone suggested pressing all 4 lower buttons on the control panel at the same time. I tried it last night and it worked! I only ran the wash & hold cycle but will try a full cycle tonight.

Depress start button till start light goes out. Close door, drain pump should run for a while. Wait for end of program, rer-try a new program start. This process is re-setting memory.If this fails to sort problem then start checking components, ie: fill valve water on? heaters open circuit/down to earth, drain pump, is it emptying, wash pump.

Hotpoint DWT10 Dishwasher error codes/lights


food stuck in drain pump remove and clean out or scoop out - soak up all water then fill with 3 or 4 hot litres of water . cancel programme , start new one ( first thing unit does is switch to drain cycle ).
Then rock machine back and forth - this sometimes frees jammed debris thus pumping out of machine.
This works for me i have done it several times and it works
