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

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.


Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.



To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.



To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.



Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.



Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.



1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

Diplomat intergrated dishwasher error code FA


FA is a problem with the tubidity sensor. By holding down the power button, it stops, but just repeats everytime you try a new wash cycle. So keep doing it and you can atleast use it. If you want to go one step further and find a permanent solution try feeling around in the sump (where the filter slots in) being careful for any broken glass. Other than that it will probably be a strip-down job to examine the internal hoses and the pump; not a DIY job to be honest.

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

My kenmore dishwasher wont start at all now. It used to start if you pushed certain buttons a bunch of times but now the lights next to most of the buttons light up but it wont start a cycle. any ideas?


Hello

Ensure that the dishwasher is connected to a working power supply. Check the local fuse or circuit breaker and restart as necessary.

Open and shut the door firmly until it latches into place. The dishwasher will not function if the door is not latched into position.

Select the desired cycle and press the cycle button firmly, as you must choose a cycle in order for the dishwasher to begin operation.

Look at the water valve that is connected to the dishwasher and ensure it is turned on.

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply to reset the unit. Plug it back in and select a new cycle. Select "Start." If the dishwasher still does not start, contact an authorized service technician.

Dishwasher keeps coming on and then turing off during all cycles, what could it be


I am slightly unclear about the problem.

What do you mean by coming on and turning off during all cycles.

Does the dishwasher turn itself on even when it is turned off?

If coming on means the drain pump starts as soon as you select a program cycle then most likely the flood switch is activated which causes the pump to start to make sure there is no water left inside the dishwasher. You will have to find the location of the flood switch and dry it out. make sure power is turned off when you are working on the dishwasher components.

If this solves the problem there you also need to find out what is the source of the water leak.

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.
