Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Wont start

Sometimes the dishwasher won't start. It goes completely dead like it has no power at all. I can get it to restart if I shut down the main power from the beaker box . This seems to be happening on a more regular basis now.

Test this steps and fix it. GOd bless you
1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

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

4. Selector switch
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

SOURCE: Hotpoint dishwasher BF1620 blew the main fuse

This is happening because you have a very bad fault, a Phase to Earth short, problem. Leave machine UNPLUGGED, Breaker/Fuses OUT. do NOT use it, nor Touch it, It is possible to get severe electric shock. PLEASE get a registered serviceman to inspect this unit.

SOURCE: DISHWASHER COMPLETELY DEAD

Hi John, and welcome to Fixya. I don't believe the greasy water sitting in the machine has anything to do with the problem, rather it is likely a by-product of the problem. Based on your post, I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line. Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair. This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance". The end result is no power to the controls. Check it out and post back what you find. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Our Asko dishwasher will not shut off when we open

Hello,
Welcome to fixya. Based on your description and trusting it is indeed an Asko 1796, I'd suspect you have a door switch "accuator" sticking ( control pin as identified by Asko. pin part #80 575 42, switch part # 80 554 73 ). This has been a random occurrence with Asko dishwasher's since they went to this design around 1994 or so. If the dishwasher doesn't stop when you open the door as you stated, here's a possible remedy you can try on your own. Make sure the unit is off first. **Turn the breaker off at your home service panel before attempting any service suggested here on 'fixya"...safety first" This procedure I'm going to suggest can be done easiest and more accurately by removing the control panel for better access as well as to visually inspect other component. It can also be done without removing the panels by identifying the small round "pin" in the the door latch channel ( where the latch goes into the door when closed )...i.e. 94bd9a4.jpg ...with the aid of a small screwdriver, tooth-pick, ear swab etc. add some vasiline or grease to the top of the pin working it in via pushing the pin up & down...I recommend removing the panels though. To do this... Open the door and along the top you'll see "T20" torx head screws. Remove just the screws for the console/control panel, you must also be careful as the edges of these panels are sharp ( auto-mechanics protective gloves are good for this ). Once off you can see the micro-switch and the small "pin" I was referring to earlier much easier. cd7bb1b.jpg Tilt the entire panel towards you slightly, just enough to work with ( careful not to undo any wires, or take pictures as you go ). Apply some grease or silicone lube to the shaft of the pin/accuator and work it in really thoroughly. I find it easier to remove the plastic cover & micro-switch out of it`s bractket to allow a little room to work i.e. e09a335.jpg ...careful not to let the plastic pin fall out. Where I pointed my finger in the image below is where to apply the lubricant. 03cb0a9.jpg Re-attach the control panel and you can test it before itstalling all the screws. Let me know if you require further assistance. Thanks for coming to fixya, please take a moment to rate the help you received. Good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Dishwasher won't drain when cycle

Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

Hi, My Samsung R580 I3 JBB2-US keeps on shutting down. If I close the lid when I re-open it shuts down & I have to restart or it freezes and I have to force restart. Sometimes when I boot up it...


Hi,
You can try go to Start - Control Panel - Power Options and check what you want computer do when you close the lid of your laptop. Fix that and restart laptop to apply the setting.
If the boot up not complete and restart by itself, in my opinon, there is something wrong on the start up process, could be hardware malfuctions, could be a software not compatible. Try check the start up process to see.(use Start- Run: msconfig)
If this happen often, you should call the Samsung customer services to find out. Laptop i3 should still under warranty.

Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading

The playbook is stuck and won't start not broken just in same mode no activity. Won't restart


If you can't get it shut down, then try leaving it on but unplugged until the battery is completely dead. Hopefully when it is plugged back in and charged for a few minutes it should restart normally. If this doesn't work, then you should contact Blackberry Tech Support for your area, they are usually quite good to deal with, but I suggest contacting them by phone as email can be cumbersome and take several days to make progress. Their phone number for your country should be on the website. Obviously your playbook is still under warranty as it wasn't released more than a year ago.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.
