Siemens Lady 480 dishwasher does not complete the normal cycle

The needle indicator on my Siemens Lady 480 dishwasher advances normally for about the first fifteen or twenty minutes of operation, then stops advancing and the washer goes into a repetitive mode without stopping. If the needle is moved off its stuck position by turning the knob on the front panel it will resume its advance for a while and then once again get stuck with the washer going into a repetitve mode.

this can be two issues. One could be the control knob. there could be a malfunction here. secondly, you may have a faulty water valve assembly. the relay or solenoid may need to be replaced. i would start with the control knob.

SORRY wrong forum but hope it can still be answered. Quiet Partner 3 dishwasher completes diagnostic perfectly but will not run normal cycle. Inlet valve works as does the float during diagnostic.

Does the water fill during other cycles? How did you confirm the water inlet valve works, through the diagnostic mode or just by applying power? There's a chance it is not providing enough water pressure to trigger the pressure switch (although that would likely cause a diagnostic code).

We have a Siemens E10 16 washing machine and it has recently started to play up. During a cycle, it needs to be manually advanced on to the next stage of the cycle several timers during a wash. We do not...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete, general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Possiedo una lavastoviglie siemens lady 530. ultimamente durante ii ciclo di lavaggio indicato con una spazzola fa saltare il contatore, indicando supero di potenza , più del 30 percento. e'...


Il consumo cosi alto e' probabilmente il risultato di un malfunzionamento. Un corto circuito o una parte diffettosa puo infatti causare un assorbimento di gran lunga fuori dal normale. Problemi che possono risultare in ecessivo assorbimento sono:
Modulo elettronico diffettoso.
Pompa diffettosa.
Motore ventola diffettoso (se presente in questo modello).
Corto circuito (questo fa saltare subito il contatore sempre nella stessa parte del ciclo).

I suggerisco di telefonare al numero Siemens disponibile nel manuale d'uso riportando il problema.

Cordiali saluti.

F&P washer lights on and beeps

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

Does the washer fill normally and just stop? Or, does the washer fill, go through a complete cycle, and just won't drain? There could be a couple of problems that cause a no drain issue. 1. FILL NORMALLY & STOPS, WILL NOT SPIN - This is usually a bad lid switch. If you open and close the lid, you should hear a "click", indicating the switch is working. 2. FILL NORMALLY, AGITATES, WILL NOT DRAIN - This could be a clogged drain pump, pinched hose, clogged rain line. Also, you need to make sure timer is advancing properly. If the timer never advances, the washer will fill, but won't go into agitate or spin. Let me know if this is helpful.
