Fisher and paykell nemo dishwasher Nemo model 820. Continuously beeps when the start or any other button is pushed. Will not start

I had a similar problem with my Fisher and Paykel Nautilus 920 (same product line more or less as yours). Here's what I discovered was wrong, and how I fixed it ...

Hidden inside the plastic panel at the top of the door, where the operating buttons for the dishwasher are) is is a little switch connected to the door latch that has a blue wire and a cream coloured wire attached to it. What was wrong in mine was the cream coloured wired had become brittle and broken off from the switch. If I pressed any button, all I got was 4 rapid beeps (no error code on the display or anything like that, just the 4 beeps).

If you open the dishwasher door and look inside around the top, you'll see about 6 star shaped screws. These hold the control panel on. You'll need a special screwdriver bit to undo these (luckily I had the right one in a cheap mini screwdriver set I got from eBay that's useful for electronics and computers).

Undo those screws and gently prise the control panel off. (Poke something in the door to stop it from closing completely while you are doing all of this). Check the switch in the middle near the door latch to see if the two wires are still properly attached. In my case the cream one had broken off and fallen back inside the door, but I was able to catch it and fish it out with a pair of kitchen tongs. I used sticky tape to tape it (and the blue one) to the door while I was working so neither of them could fall back inside.

I stripped a bit more plastic off the top of the cream wire then soldered it back onto its connector, then reattached it, along with the blue one, to the back of the door latch switch (take note of which colour goes on which part of the switch before you begin).

Probably the trickiest bit was reassembling the control panel back on. There is a little plastic thing that covers the LED display part that always wants to fall out if you try to do this with the door in the upright position, plus you have to ease the panel back on properly so that the push buttons all line up with the outer flexible covering. I found it easier to lay on my back with the door almost fully open to gently tease things back into position. Also, check that the door latch works smoothly (without closing the door - just squeeze it up and down and makes sure the operation 'feels right'). Once everything is in place, redo the little screws and hopefully you are good to go again!

Ive had this dishwasher for 14 years now and had virtually decided that I would have to buy a new one until I discovered what the problem was and how relatively simple it was to fix. Hope this info helps you or someone else! :)

Door will not shut when upper silverware holder is in

Make sure you are installing that silverware holder properly. The little tabs of the silverware holder are supposd to go over and around the mating bars of the upper rack. Barring that, your upper rack may be pulled (bent) out, and you may have to push it (hard) to get it back in shape.

How can I buy a replacement door for a 302 dishlex ?

Hi there,

I was looking for the same thing myself for our Dishlex 300 a few months back. Our problem was 1/ the handle wasn\'t releasing the door catch,

also 2/ the micro switch in the catch wasn\'t getting pressed down properly to tell the machine the door was closed, so the dishwasher wouldn\'t start. Both problems were related to the plastic ramp inside the door being worn where the tongue of the catch goes in.

We couldn\'t find one in NZ, so I made a tapered flat piece of wood to push the catch down between the main body and the door whenever we want to open it.

For the switch problem it was a bit harder - I opened up the plastic box at the top front of the machine (with the power off of course) and built up the plastic ramp that triggers the switch, using glue and then a file to shape it after the glue hardened.

I hope this is helpful.

I have a whirlpool dishwasher, model du1345xtvb5 and it wont turn on and it has power to the unit.

Sounds like a faulty door switch, difficult to reach, you have to remove outer door panel & the 2 screws underside of the control panel. Door switch sits in a plastic holder middle of the door, it is activated by a 'fork' on the machine, and has a plastic roller in front of it.
Same type of micro-switch found in microwaves etc. Good luck!

Soap dispenser cover latch will not stay in the hole. So now the soap holder will not stay closed.

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

Model du943pwkt0 has power but will not operate.

One possible cause is the door-interlock switch, which is located at the door's upper edge and inside the door. If you're feeling experimental, you can open the door a few inches and use a small screwdriver to gently press the white plastic portion of the switch. While holding the switch closed, press one of the "wash" buttons to see if the process starts after a few seconds delay. If there are no lights on the panel, the switch may have failed.

WARNING: disconnect power to the dishwasher BEFORE attempting any repairs! If you're unsure how to do this, DO NOT proceed-- call a service technician!

If you feel competent to attempt the repair and have access to basic tools and an digital multimeter, you can proceed as follows.

Remove the lower sound-deadening panels and set aside the screws where they won't get lost.

To get access to the switch, remove the Torx screws that secure the door's inner plastic panel. The two screws at the top of the door
hold the door switch in place.

Next, remove the flexible black plastic cover that protects the controls and control-circuit board. Gently press the cover's edge nearest the door until the cover's "feet" slip out of the door's edge.
Set the cover aside.

Examine the door switch assembly. It consists of two Microswitches (tm) held side-by-side in the door-switch bracket by two white plastic rods.

The switch with brown and black wires attached is the master interlock switch. In this case, the switch had failed, overheating the black wire's fast-on terminal and collapsing the switch's internal components.

The switch was manufactured by Micro Switch and is marked as follows (three safety-agency symbols are also printed on the switch):

FSP 3369325

(date code) V7-1C29E9-000-1
15.1A 1/2HP 125, 250, 277 VAC
1/2A 125 VDC; 1/4A 240 VAC
L215 5A 120 VAC L

You can view a picture of the switch here:

(Supplied for reference only; other sources may exist.)

The switch in question is a normally-open single-pole single-throw type with a pin actuator and 1/4-inch quick disconnect terminals.

If an ohmmeter check shows that the switch is defective (always open), you can remove it by gently pressing out the two plastic pins that hold the assembly together.

Replace the defective switch, making sure that the quick-disconnect terminals are properly in place on the switch's terminals. Reverse the disassembly process, making sure that no wires are misrouted or pinched.

On off switch won't stay depressed on AEG dishwasher

Took unit apart and when I put it back it worked again. For how long who knows.

Access to the switch is difficult but by removing the printed circuit board, it seemed to allow the switch to work.

Bosch Dishwasher on/off

It could be the switch. If the black plastic On/Off button comes all the back up into cutout in the top of the door, you must remove the front of the door (10 little screws; two shims will probably fall out; good luck figuring out how they go back) and then the plastic top (4 little screws) that contains the On/Off and the wash mode buttons. Now you've exposed the real on/off switch, which has a reddish/brown stem (at least on my unit). Test the switch; if the DW doesn't stay on when you depress it, you need a new switch. If it stays on, then goes off when you depress it again, the switch is likely good and maybe you have a problem with the black plastic cover button.

Bosch SHU43 / Siemens Dishwasher door not locking

I replaced the top cover, that required removing the door screws to get access to the front of the door to remove the 4 top cover retaining screws. After replacing all this, the door latch was in teh locked position not allowing the door to close. How do you physically re-set the lock, I tried to push it with no luck!
