AL01 is activated when the dishwasher develops a leak and the internal water tray has filled with water. This activates the pump to drain water from the dishwasher. The tray needs emptying manually however and the source of the leak needs to be traced. Probably best to get an engineer in to do that.

Why won't my Kenmore dishwasher display work properly?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


Heating Element

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Check Fault Codes

If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the wiring diagram and tech sheet in the dishwasher that will provide information on the fault.


Drain Pump

If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Touchpad

If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Hi , my adp4601 start light flashes four times and then flashes again constantly but not all the water is gone from the bottom can anyone help


If your Dishwasher is not Draining check the following

PISTON VALVE

On some dishwashers that have a filter (screen) along the back wall of the tub have a piston valve. The piston valve commonly causes dishwashers not to pump out. if your dishwasher does have a filter, remove it. Now remove the piston valve located in the center behind the filter. Now to check the piston valve, press up on the spring. Once done the piston should stop up the hole in the top of the valve. When a piston valve, is bad the piston dissolves to the point that it can no longer stop up the hole, in this case replace it.

DRAIN SOLENOID

Another common problem on some dishwashers that will cause it not to drain properly is the drain solenoid. To check this, first disconnect power from dishwasher then remove the bottom panel of dishwasher. Once off, you should see the drain solenoid attached to the main pump then reach under the dishwasher and push down on the solenoid. If it will not move down it is bad and needs replacing. If it will push, down most of the time it is good but not always so follow these steps as well. Reconnect power to dishwasher, now start the dishwasher in to a cycle. If you have a mechanical timer turn it slowly until the solenoid energizes. If you turn the timer all the way around and the solenoid never energizes replace the solenoid. If you have an electronic control, start the dishwasher and wait a few minutes then push start/reset then the drain solenoid should energizes, if not replace the solenoid. At times the timer will cause this part to go bad especially if its melted or frozen down. So you may have to replace timeras well.

CHECK VALVE

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the check valve may be your problem. The check valve will be on some dishwashers with both a separate drain pump or drain valve (note if you do not have both you will not have a check valve). The check valve will be located where the black hose connects to the drain pump. To access the check valve, you must first remove the water from the dishwasher. A Wet-Vac works well. After the water is out, disconnect power to dishwasher. Now remove the dishwasher from under the cabinet. Now remove the black hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready).Once off you should see the check valve. It's the little red rubber flap. If it is torn off, the flap may have gone down the drain but you still should see the red ring left behind, in this case replace the valve. Sometimes the check valve will swell up and hang in the pump, if so replace it.

DRAIN PUMP

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain pump may be your problem. As stated before, not all dishwashers will have a drain pump. To check this, First check to see if it is getting power. You should have 120 volts when the dishwasher is put into a drain cycle. If you have power and the pump does not run remove the pump and check for obstructions if none found replace the pump.

DRAIN HOSE

If your dishwasher is not draining properly, the drain hose may be stopped up. To check, remove all the water from tub. A Wet-Vac works well for this. After the water is gone remove the drain hose (even though you removed the water you will still have water in the pump so be ready) from the house plumbing and the dishwasher. Check for obstructions and remove. If you just installed a new garbage disposal check that the metal knockout was removed. Check the air gap if this is not right your dishwasher will siphon water back into it.

The lights of my Viking dishwasher VDB200SS are flashing and do not stop even if I reset the unit by pressing start for more than 4 sec. The pump is running when I connect the unit to electric power for a...


Hello Jo, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, I suspect you mean the drain pump is running as is common for Asko built machines such as your Viking with this scenario/error. I have good news...It is likely nothing very serious, but the "resolve" requires some investigation on your part.

What this usually means is the control has indicated a overfill. All the indicators flashing is the error code for overfill/drain error.


**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

The first thing to do is remove the toe panel/kick plate and inspect the base for water. There will likely be water present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump...
(it could mean a faulty drain pump or a inlet water valve, so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

**The float is primarily the last ditch safety to prevent disaster in the event of a overflow, back-flow, or leak underneath the unit activates the pump-out non-stop
letting you know to service or call for service to the unit**

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Green start button won't stop blinking


START/RESET status indicator light flashing


You have pressed the indicator light flashing START/RESET pad while the START/RESET dishwasher is running. This will cancel the cycle. The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains (about 90 seconds).


Press the pad once to start the dishwasher. Press the pad a second time when the dishwasher is running only if you wish to cancel the cycle.


Power to the dishwasher was turned off while a cycle was running and power has just been restored to the dishwasher. The blinking lights indicate that the dishwasher is draining the potential water inside.


The light will stop flashing after the dishwasher drains. A new cycle will start automatically.


Good luck

Clean light flashes


You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.
