SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on "drain"

not easy to fix - it has a leak. the tray at the base is full of water which ooperates a float which switches drain pump on. remove front panel at bottom front and mop out water or tilt backwards 45deg and water will run out. leak is usually main pump

SOURCE: Dishwasher

If this is a blinking "clean light", this is a common problem with some of the Kenmore and Whirlpool models. I believe the problem is attributed to water supply temperatures being too low when filling. Apparently, there are some sensitivity issues with the temperature sensing circuits in some dishwashers. There is a reset sequence that you can try to clear the fault. Push the NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons in that sequence two to three times. The unit will enter diagnostics mode, but can be stopped by pressing the CANCEL button. This will clear any existing faults and should return the dishwasher to normal operation.

To keep the fault from returning, it is recommended that you run your hot water faucet in the kitchen until it runs hot. This will heat the water in the supply line for the dishwasher (most dishwashers are fed from the kitchen sink supply line). The theory is that if you fill the dishwasher with hot water from the start of the wash cycle instead of the cool water that is normally in the lines (especially if you have a hot water tank located far away from the kitchen), this should satisfy the requirements of the temperature sensing circuits. If the fault reappears, there should be a tech sheet located inside the lower panel under the door that explains what the fault is. The flashing light will be a series of flashes, followed by a pause. If you indeed have a component problem, it will depend on what the flashing light sequence is in determining WHAT component is bad. Let me know if this helps you. Post back with your comments or questions.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

Thank you! Our dishwasher hasn't been working for so long. I've tried spinning the fan to get it unstuck a long time ago but I thought that wasn't the problem. The fan was stuck real tight and i couldn't turn it more than a quarter turn each time. This time it worked!

-Turned off power to dishwasher on circuit breaker
-Removed kick panel
-Used two screw drivers, one to turn the fan till I couldn't any more and the other one to hold the blades in place so that it wouldnt "unwind". Then I would turn the fan some more. It turned less and less each but after repeating about 5 times the fan got un-stuck.
-Turned the power back on to the dishwasher and turned the dishwasher back on and IT WORKS!

THANK YOU!!

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

I have Acer Aspire E500 (ASE500-UP801M) running Win XP Media Center edition, 1G RAM. It is too slow. Q1. Could I add another RAM stick to it and how much maximum could I add? Q2. How do I know the Bus


Test your computer using a brand new hard drive. 1GB memory is enough. I am sure this is a software problem (messy registry or problematic apps or malware) or space problem (the hard drive is almost full).

My laptop is getting more and more slow


Hi,

It seems that:-
1. You have lot many programs pre-loading on startup and you are running out of RAM.
2. There's a virus (memory resident) that is duplicating itself on a particular keystroke or on opening a certain program or accessing a certain file or folder.

Q1. What's your OS. (Windows XP, Vista, 7, ???)
Q2. What Antivirus are you using?
Q3. Do you maintain your HDD by defragmenting it at least once in 6 months?
Q4. Do you perform a Scandisk / chkdsk whenever you feel that the unit is slowing down?
Q5. Do you often visit sites full of malware & spyware?

I think you shuold be able to Answer the Questions yourself because the answers lie in the questions.

Also there are quite a few anti-spyware / malware / script blocking software like SpyStopper Pro v5 available on the net. I think you should install it.

Anything you didn't follow, feel free to write in again.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N error code SC581


Q1 - Possibly, I have not seen an SC581 error before. Usually using too much power would give you something like an SC240 error "Power Supply Excessive". So it depends on the extent of the damage. You could also have to replace the main board, motors, etc.

Q2 - You will have to pull back the feeder tray, remove the back panel, there is a cover over the main board and the power supply is below it and fairly easy to get to. But if other components were damaged it could be a much more involved repair.

There is no water coming in the dishwasher


The water pipe to your dishwasher is most likely split and/ or kinked.
