Dishwasher not working

Not certain what the problem is. When I turn the dishwasher on it automatically seems to start on the pump cycle without me having selected a program. As it continues (and doesn't stop at all unless I swith the dishwasher off) the inlet/drain lights up and alternates between staying lit and then flashing. I have cleaned out all filters, checked stopcock, pipes, but no luck. Could it be an electrical problem needing and expert? I need my dishwasher working for sanity, help!!! Frazzled mum of five

    Same problem here, with a Miele G590. The drain pipe from the kitchen sink became blocked and the dishwasher, connected to the same pipe, was unable to drain in the normal way so it emptied all over the floor. After clearing the pipe blockage the dishwasher pump worked but no wash cycle could be activated. Tipping the machine back and draining all the water from it solved the problem. Thanks Crytech!

    This worked for me - my dishwasher was not pumping out filling up with water and was showing error message E1, ie the aqua stop device had obviously kicked-in, but there was no sign of any leakage on the hose.

    Despite being a built- in dishwasher, it was fairly easy to remove the inspection panel at the base of the front of the machine to see that about 1 cm of water had collected in the bottom of the machine.

    I disconnected the power, slid the dishwasher forward (needed to remove 2 fixing screws and lower the adjustable feet a little) then was able to tilt the machine forward to remove the water - as an additional measure, I mopped- up the residue with kitchen towels and left it to try out for an hour or two.

    To test, I reconnected the power - the dishwasher started up immediately and has worked well ever since.

    I just wonder if I'd called out an engineer, if they'd been able to fix the problem, as it certainly would be difficult to find if I hadn't Googled for help !

I had same problem after the machine had blocked and filled with water. We drained out the water from the inside but only the pump would work. After reading the solution from crytech I tilted the machine untill all water had come out from the bottom and re started and problem is now solved. Try draing all water from bottom.

regards geof

Hi Frazzledmum, Miele have a safety float switch in the bottom of the machine. (The float is a polystyrene disc). If the machine leaks for any reason, then the water sits in the bottom tray raises the float switch & all your dishwasher will do is activate the drain pump and flash those red lights at you. The reason is that somewhere under the machine there is a leak that needs to be investigated & repaired so in this instance I'm affraid that you will have to call a serviceman. Kind regards

How do i reset my whirlpool adg 7460 dishwasher ? programme seems stuck on end cycle?


Unplug it, move timer to start and plug back in. If it still seems stuck at the end it is almost certainly the timer. If it starts as normal, suspect the drain pump or pressure switch

Fridgidaire FDB1250REC dishwasher comes on, fills some water in bottom then cycle stops but can hear motor turning on and off, water will drain when I try to start cycle again.


This seems to be the "anti flood" device at the base of the washer is triggered due to water at the base of the washer. This safety device consists of a polystireene float and a micro switch that detects water leaks/spills and automatically puts the washer in pump out mode. You need to find the leak (hose or clamp)dry the base and rectifythe leak it before the washer works.

Dishwasher was making a loud hum. I turned it off and started it this morning. Seemed to be working fine, but after about 5 minutes it started making the same loud hum. The first time it seemed to be...


The loud humming noise can be due to the pump sticking if a piece of debris gets trapped in it or an intermittent fault on the pump capacitor or starter relay.

Check out these links below to get tutorials and advice on how to clean the pump or change the capacitor or relay which is cheap and simple job.

Dishwasher running on a short cycle, not cleaning


It is hard to be specific without knowing the model number of your Hotpoint dishwasher and approximately how many years old it is...

If your dishwasher has a mechanical timer knob that you turn to get the dishwasher started, I would suspect that it is failing (not advancing after a certain point.)

Please report back with what you find, OK?

Dishwasher problem


First: this is what Whirlpool says!!
And after this at the bottom Is what the repair manual says when I looked it up for you!


Dishwasher is not operating properly
1.Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
2.Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
3.Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
4.Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
5.Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
6.Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
7.Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.
___________________________________________________________

BUT, the repair manual says this


Faulty Pump and Motor Assembly Some models that will not wash or drain often have a faulty Pump and Motor Assembly. If the motor is receiving power from the timer and it is not operating that is the case.
Temporary Work-around:
With the power turned off to the unit, sometimes it is possible to manually rotate the cooling fan on the motor assembly. In certain situations where the dishwasher has set idle for a period of time, this may free the bearings enough that the unit will begin to operate. Where this works as a short term solution in some cases, it is often a sign of things to come. The frequency of the motor seizing will increase until it will simply no longer work.

I think this is a hands job that needs service and hands on attention!
I hope it's not the motor or pump!

How old is the machine?
If they tell you it is an expensive motor then you need to know this!!!!


Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Dishwasher


Can't really supply a solution, mine has done this since Christmas. Mine seems to be related to the volume of water taken(or indeed not) into the machine. I have resorted to chucking a bowl of water into the bottom at the start (after the initial draining cycle) of the programme and during the rinse. Not exactly automatic & I can't imagine it will do the pump much good flogging it without a sufficient prime, however it works for me. I'll keep an eye to see if a more substantive fix comes along. Best wishes.
