Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

No power to the main water valve during cycle.

I start the normal, or anyother, cycle and do not get power to the main water valve. 20+ seconds later, the circulation pump comes on with no water to circulate. Is there a relay or fuse in this circuit? Where do I look?

I'm no expert, but I recently had a fill valve replaced. There is a float switch at the bottom of most dishwashers. Its purpose is to cut power to the normally-closed electrically-opened fill valve in the event of an overfill. If the float switch "thinks" there is an over-fill situation, it will cut power to valve, closing it. I would start with replacing the float switch or checking to ensure that it is not stuck in the "up" position due to debris.

Again, I'm no expert.

My Simpson eziload 750 will not shut off the water during cycles when supposed to


Start machine as normal. After a few seconds of filling, press the pause button. Water coming in should stop immediately. If it hesitates then stops or does not stop at all you have a faulty inlet valve. Change it.

Water is going into the washer very slow during the rinse and spin cycle, also not carring the softner into the machine


Machine is not that old, the wash cycle water intake is ok? maybe bad water inlet valve? try seeing how it works on only cold and only hot water, change the hose lines from hot to cold and see what happens? as for the fabric thingy may have abad clogged line or a tiny hole in line and its going elsewhere

Aquaglass whirlpool tub


Does you tub have the air system installed? If so you may have the air system advanced function. There are two types of air system advanced functions.
  1. With water level detector: A 30 second Drying cycle Will automatically start 20 minutes after the control has detected there is no more water remaining in the tub.
  2. With out water level detector: A 30 second Drying cycle Will automatically start 20 minutes after the complete stop of the blower.
If you have the first type this may be normal or the water level sensor may be dirty or faulty.
If you have the second type it may be a control board problem.
. Hope this helps.

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A


This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

Hey, I have just acquired a second hand Simpson Espirit 4.5kg top loader washing machine and am having a problem. Each cycle seems to work okay, but within 30-45 seconds of finishing (during spin cycle),...


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

I have en error message of E12 showing during the wash cycle?


E62: Overheating during washing

E12 means a problem filling on dry cycle.

Unplug the appliance, take the top off and check that the plastic condenser below the fan is clear and clean.

If this is ok, the most likely fault is the triple valve isn't opening properly to feed water into the condenser.

It may be that a power off and on is all that is required to make the valve work.
The worst case would be that it's a fault with the main control board.

If you have access to and can use a multimeter you could test and make sure that 240 volts was being supplied to the valve when it goes wrong. This would narrow the fault down.

Ive had it many times when during use the valve fails. So at first it works ok and during use thats when it fails.

What you can do is set it going and say after 20 mins or so unplug it and meter out the dryer coil on the fill valve. Its the green coil. What you will proberbly find is the coil is open circuit.

If so the valve will need to be replaced and it should be back to normal then.

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

Bosch dishwasher has water in bottom after cycle is complete


Hi

Kindly check for the following :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit.
Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.
Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.
Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise
If you have recently installed a new garbage disposal, check knock-out plug at connection.

Check pump impeller for damage.
Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.

Please contact for any further clarifications.

A Fixya Rating would be appreciated if.

Thanks

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your 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.
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.
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.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
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.
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.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?

Huuum
