Please clarify model of dishwasher. It is likely the motor compartment has flooded and it is shorting the power system. Turn off mains power to dishwasher to avoid damage to dishwasher. The source of flooding has to be found.

F1 is a flood code meaning excessive amounts of water have collected on the bottom catch basin.
If a flood condition is detected, both draws will activate the drain motors and flash F1.
Remove the bottom drawer by pulling the lock pins on each lower side corner. Slide down and remove front cover. Release the drawer slide clips and remove drawer then dry the catch basin.
There are three possible scenarios for this error code;
1. Defective lid motor(s)...Each drawer has two lid motors, attached to the cabinet on either side of the drawer, that pull the lid tight to the drawer when the cycle is started. (this was very common on early models)
2. Something too tall was placed in the drawer preventing the lid from closing completely.
3. (only seen this once) the drain hose developed a crack causing water to leak only when draining.

Hi there ....this condition is ususally caused by a water leak into the sump of the dishwasher which activates a safety switch to run the drain pump..preventing the appliance from being used....Remedy...tip the dishwasher back in the head allowing excess water to exit from the sump...then with the door open check that the air vent lock ring is secure, thet the salt unit retaining ring is secure..and finally that the filter unit to base screws are secure...this done re-start and you should b fine

SOURCE: Dishwasher pump keeps running

This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.

My electrolux Dishwasher model ei24id30qs is beeping 3 times every 4-5 seconds and the drain pump ( or some motor of sorts) continues to run with the door open. Have opened the trhwn the breaker for hours...


I appreciate your post, kris!

From what you have explained your Electrolux dishwasher is beeping three times every four to five seconds. This could be a possible issue with your control panel. It may need to be replaced and this may not be a simple DIY job. If you need assistance locating a professional I would recommend reviewing your manufacturer's website for help. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

toner low, load paper, ready, and continue will all be lit.

2004 sebring conv. shuts off after getting of normal operating temp. Will start again after it cools off.


Did you do the key "Dance" for codes? Put key in ignition, turn to the "RUN" position - do not crank the engine - and return it back to the off position, do this four times, on the fifth time leave it in the "RUN" position and watch the check engine/power loss light and count the flashes. Should start with five flashes (start of test) followed by a couple series of flashes keep track of the number of flashes as this will tell you what sensor is on the fritz. The test is over when it flashes five times again. Also the chain stores will scan for zero cost.....Just for grins try unplugging the water temp sensor (usually near the thremostat) see if car stays running......Plug it back in to double check.

Fisher and Paykel DW920 dishwasher pump wont stop


This means the flood circuit is triggered. There is a leak in the dishwasher causing water to collect in the motor chamber. The leak is usually through the door seals or broken hose. Disconnect mains electric and water connections and pull dishwasher out from under kitchen bench. Tilt it from side to side to get the water out from under the base. Wait a little for water to dry up. Reconnect mains power and turn on to see if pump stops running. As mentioned source of leak needs to be fixed.

F4 message on the top drawer, fisher paykel. I clean the filters and arm every week or two.


There 2 possibilities with this error:
1)
  • Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)
  • Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault
2)--4 Flashes--Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect

God bless you

Computer shut down and red light flashing five times then three second pause and repeats


According to the troubleshooting guide for this model, the red light flashing five times indicates a problem in the RAM (memory), before the video subsystem is ready. You may just need to open the case and make sure the memory sticks are fully locked in their slots. If you just added new memory, it might not match the required specs.

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)

Cause Pre-video memory error.

Solution
1.
Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.

2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.

3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.

Gurgles with no water coming in; keeps trying to run with door open.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

When the door is opened do the lights all flash, or are the flashing regardless if door is open or closed ?

Based on your description I`d suspect the unit has sensed an overfill problem...the flashing "LED`s" is how the Asko indicate this scenario.

The gurgling is simply due to the drain pump being on continuously.Though you say the machine is empty, the overfill basin may be full of water.

**Turn off the power to the unit via the house breaker before attempting any repairs or service**

If you remove the toe panel/kick plate below the door, check to see if the basin is full of water or has any sign of water being present. If left several days it will typically evaporate and appear to be normal again...until it overfills again.

There are other factors which could cause this of course, including a faulty pressure switch, but we can go down that path once you inspect the overfill basin for water.

Good luck.

Jul 04, 2010 | Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We have a GE front load washer WCVH6800. Recently we loaded some throw rugs into the washer. These rugs released a large amount of material. We cleaned the pump filter 3 times and it now seems clean. ...


The water inside the tub will drain out when the pump filter is removed from the pump housing and flood the base of the washer. If not, the tub drain hose is clogged preventing the water to drain into the pump housing then out.

The door is locked because the foam switch in the pressure switch is open due to the presence of water after the unsuccessful drain cycle.

Disconnect the washer from the power outlet. Remove the three screws holding the lower front access panel to the cabinet and pull the panel down to access the pump housing.

Squeeze the clamp that hold the tub drain hose to the pump housing and slide it back. Prepare a pan to catch the water to prevent flooding. The tub drain hose maybe difficult to remove and you may need to insert something under it to break the seal and pull it off.

Remove the tub drain hose from the tub by squeezing the securing clamp and pulling it off the tub drain outlet. Clear the hose and the tub drain outlet from any debris.

Reinstall the tub drain hose and manually unlock the door before reinstalling the access panel. Reach and pull the release ring behind and up the right side of the front panel, then open the door.
