Make this test 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 and Control Panel

If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

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.

SOURCE: Lights flashing on dishwasher and not working!

put some towels dowm and tip the d/w over to one side about 45 degrees if water pours out of the base it means that the d/w is in "flood mode" and you have a leak into the base that will need resolving.

Look at your manual, usually available on net for reading or downloading. Blink lights are often used to code out a problem with various combinations and repetition rates to indicate trouble code number for look-up in manual.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

The first thing that should be checked is the drain hose and the drain pump operation, if the drain hose is clean then check the drain pump, if its not working then replacing it is recommended. Then check the water inlet valve and make sure it is not clogged and the water is coming inside the unit. After cleaning both pump and inlet, unplug the unit and plug it back after 15 minutes so that it works again. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Mains RCD blows after a few minutes of operation


You have a short inside the control unit. When it opens the power protection disengages the unit. It is a warning to get it replaced or face the possibility of a house fire.

Have Miele G653 SCVi plus. We have inlet/drain flashing red light


Hi,

Sounds like something is caught in th drain pump as the unit has to drain first before anything else happens. Remove the filter and the non return valve which is under the clip in the sump of the unit. In the manual it shows you this. Make sure the drain pump is free of any foreign particles like broken glass. Then start the unit again so it goes to drain without the non return valve in place. This will then throw out any foreign particles as well.

or it could be the drain pump is activated all the time which is the noise you hear as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. You will see the float at the front. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

My KitchenAid dishwasher will not run. Start light is blinking


Make sure the controls are not locked. Some units have the ability to lock the controls so that kids cannot turn on the dishwaher. You can also try unpugging the power to the unit from under the sink for about 10 minutes and then plug it back in. This may reset the control board if it has a fault and stopped from error code.
