My dishwasher will only run a Demo lasting about 1 minute. I have tried all the cycles and it will always only run Demo. I have turned off the power supply to see if it will reset but it doesn't. The manual doesnt mention anything about this problem in the troubleshooting guide. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks
I did use the solution from Camillasol and it did work verry vell (Solution from Camillasol " I pushed the "power button" and the "start button" together for some
seconds, and then the dishwasher was ok, and didnt run the Demo longer") Thanks Camillasol.

what makes you think it was in a demo mode ?? was it a floor demo model ? as if it was there might be a few things you needed to reconnect before you use it in your home , one that comes to mind is the float level switch , this is usually in front right corner and demo models usually have a foam spacer under there edge , also its possible a demo model could have a special control board in them , requiring you to replace it with a standard model b4 it would work properly
Try pushing the cancel button. Try holding the cancel button down. If it'll let you select a cycle, try running a cycle. Try putting a large volume of water in there. It might either clear the pump or it will "see" the water going out be satisfied. If it remembers the cycle you last ran, or which cycle you usually run, run a cycle that it's not used to. That helps clear the computer some dishwashers. Failing that, try turning the circuit breaker off for a minute. Press every button on the dishwasher. There's a chance that that will help drain any power stored, making the computer forget what condition it was in. Failing that, try turning the circuit breaker off or for a day or two. Failing that, if you know what you're doing and you're not worried about voiding the warranty, open up the control panel where the main circuit board is. We can assume that if it remembered this cycle with the power turned off for a while that there's a battery in there to keep from clearing the memory. Find the little button cell battery and take it out for a few minutes. Then put it back in and turn the power on. There may a reset button hidden inside there or somewhere else on the machine. Find the manual at home or on the internet and look in the troubleshooting section. There might be a specific button combination to clear that condition.
To keep this from happening in the future, pick up and install a dishwasher air gap for around $15. It's really easy and keeps water from backing up into the dishwasher. They're actually required in a lot of cities.
Have you tried it on a different program? I have nearly always used the AUTO program - however i have used the 50 degree program 3 times now and it completes the (much longer) wash without sticking on one minute. Will try it on auto again to see what happens. I found it useful to turn the end-of-wash buzzer on (to loud) to remind me when (if) it completes the program.
