Dishwasher AEG FAV40620W stuck time delay

Hi! Once our daughter pushed the 9 hour time delay we were unable to undo that and run the machine. According to the manual we found online, if we hold down buttons #2 and #3 this will reset the dishwasher. I tried every combination of buttons but to no avail. Would you know what buttons are #2 and #3 or have a recommendation? Also, is there a way for us to turn off the drying cycle using the 5 buttons to save energy?

Thank you, Peter Smith (from Calif. living in the Czech Republic)

Thanks. I figured it out from the online manual. Hold buttons #2 and #3 (second and third button down on far left side) for 2 seconds should reset it. It took some 15 minutes however before the dishwasher reset!

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?

You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Accidently pushed delay start, now annot wash

Hi sallysue5928 - How long was the delay start set to? Typically the delay time selected will be displayed as 30, 60, or 90 minutes or 2 through 14 hours. However, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it was unsuccessful then unfortunately you will have to wait till the time of the delay start cycle that was selected.

We have inadvertantly switched the oven to pyrolysis when cooking.

Hi FixYa;

My husband had inavertantly turned the oven switch, on our De Dietrich Oven, to the pyro setting and once this is done you are unable to undo it until about 3 hours later, when it has run it's course.

However with Rylee Smith's help - between us we worked out that if we turned the oven off immediately (which we had done as soon as we realised our error) and unplugged it from the mains if necessary (not in our case) and then waited for the three hour time limit to expire then, we could open the oven. This is what we did.

On the oven casing when the pyro is used - a red warning light also comes on and you can only open the oven when this has gone out.

The "Pyro" is for automatic cleaning of the oven.

The turning on of the Pyro is absolute and there is NO undoing it once it is locked in place - we contacted your firm in the hope that we could by-pass the Pyro but as we found out - with Rylee's help - it is just not possible.

I was very appreciative of having someone to talk to whilst we sorted out the problem and can't thank Rylee Smith enough for his patience in dealing with my query.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Dean

I am gettting a message on my dishwasher that says 1h

I think that the delayed use is engaged.  Wait an hour, and it will probably start up on its own.

Kitchenaid KAWS750JQ3 Top Load Washer

hi there,

make sure that the program is not on the "Intermittent Agitate Program". that would be the cause of the delay.

the other issue would be the timer itself. the timer is mechanical, so once the contact on it is corroded, it will only function intermitently or not at all.

please let me know if i can be of more help.
