Sounds like the timer needs to be replaced, especially if the tub is empty of water, and the timer will not advance no matter how long you leave it there.

STOPS BEFORE DRAIN CYCLE


Sounds like your heating element and/or temperature sensor. Most machines will stop at a point in the cycle to heat the water and will only move on when a certain temp is reached. These parts are fairly cheap.

Dishwasher does not drain


John, usually when the piston nut assy. fails the dishwasher will still drain but it will leave some water in the dishwasher. The next step would be the drain solenoid. Sometimes when there is a bad timer it will send too much voltage to the solenoid and burn it up. On the left side of the motor you will see it. A white 2 pronged harness going to it. It will have a white cam and linkage on it. You should be able to move it up and down with a little pressure. ( from wash to drain). If you advance the timer slowly to the drain position you should hear a distinctive click as it switches to the drain position. You can also put a meter on the solenoid. Probe it in on the harness. Then while advancing the timer see if you can read 120V going to it while in the drain position. If you have the voltage and the solenoid is not switching, then there is the problem. If the solenoid is working the next thing would be the drain hose. If you have a siphon break at the sink, start there. If thats clogged it will prevent a drain. Catriver.

How do i reset my whirlpool adg 7460 dishwasher ? programme seems stuck on end cycle?


Unplug it, move timer to start and plug back in. If it still seems stuck at the end it is almost certainly the timer. If it starts as normal, suspect the drain pump or pressure switch

HI our Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher gets stuck on the first cycle and the timer doesn't count down. Switching it off and restarting drains the water, but it gets stuck at the same point in the cycle


This sounds like a heating element issue, If the water doesn't get warm it just keeps trying to heat but won't advance past this point until it has reached a set temperature. You dishwasher may or may not be fitted with a thermal overload that may have tripped, Unplug the dishwasher, Remove the lower kick panel and look for a small circular metal sensor with 2 or 3 wires on it attached to the basepan of the dishwasher, Check to see if it has a red button in the middle and if it's there push it then re-assemble and try again, otherwise it's a visit from the serviceman unfortunately.

We have a Bosch dishwasher model SHU5315UC/U06. When we ran a "Regular Wash" the dishwasher ran continuously and the timer did not count-down. None of the Delicate or Rinse and Hold buttons responded. ...


My father-in-law has a Bosch and they had the same problem. The tech guy said it was not heating properly and that caused it to continously run because it won't tick down the timer if it doesn't reach a certain temp, so try turning your faucet as hot as you can, right before you turn on the dishwasher and see if that is the problem, if not the heating element might not be working properly. If you still have a warranty, try to get them to see and fix it, otherwise, get a repairman to check it out. You can also turn up your hot water heater, but not so hot it would be dangerous to use, but enough to get the temp up. Otherwise the heating element might need to be replaced.

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
Timer
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.

Does not advance to drain cycle


I would bet that it is the timer switch assy.
Motor runs ? yes
washes? yes
drain tube clear ? yes

If there is no drain valve to deal with, the problem must be the contacts during the timer cycle, since the main obviously works or you wouldn't be able to wash anything.
you need a new timer switch assy.
