I had the same problem today. The good news is I fixed it without replacing any parts. I tried a few things which may have worked so I will list them all. I'm not sure which one worked so try the easy ones first.
Fill the salt and rinse aid depensers up.
Once it starts beeping continously close the door and let it drain itself. Do this several times. Turn it off and leave it for a minute between goes. With the power button light on leave the door open slightly for about 15minutes, mine beeped after about 7 minutes and it had reset itself.
At the bottom of the dishwasher underneath there is an anti flood switch. My tray had water in it and caused the float to rise up and activate the switch which stops it from working. Easiest way to drain it is to pull the dishwasher out put down a load of towels and tip it backwards until all the water is gone. I found it easier to check for water through the right handside side panel, it comes off pretty handy. I also removed the upper front cover to check the door catch switch. Just make sure its not broken and not wore down etc. I also sprayed it lightly with WD40. Try disconnecting the wated inlet pipe at the back once you have turned the water off. Mine had a lot of pressure in it which it should probably should have but read somewhere else it solved their issue. I then stripped both sides off laid the machine on its back, make sure to disconnect the water inlet pipe and took apart the drain pump. If your looking at the back its on the right hand side, mine was dark grey and was attached by two screws to the side panel. There is 4 or 5 screws which hold the drain pump together. Unscrew these and again there will be a build up of pressure and water released. There might be a foreign object stuck in here which will stop the blades turning. Check the espares youtube channel on how to remove this, thats what I did. After all this mine didnt work straight away and I had given up. But I left the power on with the door open slightly and after 7 minutes it beeped and I was able to select a program as normal. Maybe the turning over on its back and release did the trick Im not sure but give it a go. Good luck

You might want to check the salt and rinse levels on your dishwasher.
Ours was doing the exact same thing and we refilled the dishwasher salt and it worked again. Unscrew the plastic thing on the bottom of the dishwasher and fill it up with about 1 kilo of dishwasher salt, water will flow out when you do this and you can put at least 2 kilos in.
Hope that helps xxx

SOURCE: matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops

on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

SOURCE: matsui mf160 dishwasher salt indicator will no go out

I think I have the answer.

On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)

Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.

If this is correct why is it not working?

Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?

This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-

I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.

I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.

I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.

When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!

Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.

While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!

I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)

I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.

I even got part of a paper label!

So there we have it, try it out and report back.

Matsui MF160 door tension is still strong after adjustment. Program cycle takes 150mins


Time consumption depends on the cycle chosen. For a full complete wash 150 mts is ok.

Also check whether water flow to your machine is free from clogging! Check the strainer attched to the water whose connecting junction.

We have a matsui mf160 dishwashwasher and it is struggling to get items clean - esp greasy items - i have also noticed it is not hot at the end of the cycle so i think the problem is there is no hot water....


The dishwasher's heater is likely shot. Get a new heating element. The same heater drys and the end but also heats the hot water during the wash cycle. No hot water = dirty dishes.

Matsui dishwasher mf160


I used the solution I found for a slightly different fault, ( this was the same fault but without the bleebs)
switch off mains and turn off water. Then disconnect water pipe and lay machine on it's back. Switch on electrics, and allow water to run out. Switch off electrics and stand machine up .Reconnect everything and hey presto I can hear two good things, the machine gently humming, and my wife telling me what a genius I am !!

Try to reformat it. If that is not your solution then reflash your firmware from the small CD you recieved with your MP3 Player. If you don't have that software you will find it at the following link:

http://www2.evilshare.com/358645f6-1bfe-102a-847b-00a0c993e9d6

Download it and open the the " programs " (There is only one) Once you'e in that folder.... double click on this folder "stupdaterapp.exe" Just simply follow the instructions and you should be fixed.
