SOURCE: My DMR78AHS dishwasher stopped washing. It runs

Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

SOURCE: My new samsung dishwasher is not draining. What

Make sure the drain hose is not blocked.
Look at the hose from the connection on the dishwasher to the sink to be sure its not pinched or squeezed tight.
And,remove the hose from the sink drain connection and check that connection for a blockage in both directions.It my have a sink drain blockage.
Have a bucket and towels ready for a possible water mess.

SOURCE: My Samsung DMR77LHS dishwasher has lost power

Hi, whenever a fuse of that magnitude, or any fuse really, Blows, you should never just replace it, as to have any device, blow a fuse, trip a breaker, requires a major fault, they do NOT blow spontaneously ever. So you have had a major short circuit inside your machine, at some stage, usually this is in, the main Controller Board, most likely the bridge rectifier has gone short circuit, or a capacitor, But it could be anything even the motor?anything like this then will blow the fuse. The reason the fuse blow is to prevent a fire and explosion or both, as if an unlimited amount of current could be drawn, it would be catastrophic, so a fuse blows to disconnect the power. The Cause of this MUST be discovered before one ever attempts to replace the fuse. Luckily, it seems in this case the fault has blown an open circuit on the main Board, and this has prevented any further trouble.
Really after such an event as this one should engage the services of a professional, as anyone untrained may mis something that later on my even prove fatal. Get this unit looked at by a professional service person, ask for a 'Quote" if concerned about costings, then you can make an informed decision as to what to do.

Samsung dishwasher heavy and delicate lights blink and cycle stops


The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!

My dishwasher(samsung DW7933LRABB) wont fill, it will drain if i put water in the tub. supply is on.


You either have a bad water valve, or a bad case-brake assembly (in which case you should have an error code or blinking light on your console).

Why my AEG F55080vi stops after drain cycle (program beginning) and then it stops and I hear 2 beeps and 2 flash continuously?


Definitely, water drain time-out. Error code i20.
The pressure switch doesn't return to EMPTY (1-2) after two drain phases lasting 120 seconds.
Possible causes:
Drain circuit obstructed/blocked; drain pump
interrupted or jammed (foreign bodies); level
pressure switch blocked on FULL (1-3); hydraulic
circuit of pressure switch obstructed; wiring faulty;
circuit board faulty.

Thanks to your detailed description of failure I conclude that in drain phase (after starts drain pump) leaks water and causing a short circuit. I would thoroughly reviewed drain hydraulic circuit. If is alarm displayed and there is no water inside dishwasher then check heater and anti-interference suppressor.

Samsung dmt400rhs blinking HEAVY light


I believe that error code indicates that you've got a leakage error, which means water has leaked down into the base of the dishwasher. You'll have to pull the dishwasher out, pull off the side panels, and dry up all the water, but then you still have the problem of figuring out where the leak came from and fixing the problem before you can use the dishwasher. The most common source of leakage in a Samsung DW is the drain pump and/or drain hose.

Fills then drains


Sounds like the problem is the drain pump. There is probably something stuck in it. You will have to look properly and sometimes wire is hard to detect in the pump. If this isnt the problem it maybe be the solenoid. But check the pump as I find it is usually that.

Low water level


Try to unstick the float. The float tells the DW how much water is in it at any given time. It is shaped like a mushroom on the bottom of the DW basin. Gently pick it up and set it back down. Does it seem free? Try the cycle again.

Samsung Dishwasher can drain, but gives "drain error"


Sounds like it could be those same water level sensors you worked on before. Only now its telling the thing that there is water still standing in the unit. Try cleaning those sensors again and I know this sounds obvious but check all your conections.
