    The programme button seemed to be lose and wasnt doing anything so couldnt start a wash, I have un-screwed the contraol panel and its quite simple but I need to replace the plastic tray that the controls sit into if that makes sense, as the button click against plastic levers which then click the electric controls, but the plastic levers have snapped so the buttons had nothing to push against to start the controls. Can I simply replace the plastic tray that the electric control board sits in?

The P button is a part of the control board. You should take apart the control board and see whether the P switch was just stuck and you can fix it or you should replace the unit. Good luck!

Our machine is frozen not responding to panel buttons


You can try resetting your dishwasher.

1. First, unplug the dishwasher power cord or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Then, plug the dishwasher power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
3. After that, press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Finally, start a short cycle, to check operation of the dishwasher, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the dishwasher starts.

Hotpoint slimeline 7801 dishwasher light comes on but wont start


When you say it won't start, do you mean a) the display is on and it won't respond, or b) it responds as it should, but after you hit the start button it doesn't go any further?

If it's b) make sure your water line is turned on. After you hit the start button it needs to make it's waterlevel setpoint to start the recirculation pump (thus shooting water everywhere). If it doesn't fill, then the washer doesn't know to go any further.

2 HOUR DELAYED KEEPS FLASHING AND NO OTHER OPTIONS WILL RESPOND


There should be a tech sheet behind the bottom plate of the dishwasher. It will tell you what the flashing light means. It is probably either the control panel or board.
You can press the hightemp & heateddry buttons multiple times to try and reset it but the tech sheet will be your best bet.

Sparform hot tub blower won't turn off


When an appliance will not turn off, no matter what you press on the control panel, you have either a non responding (dead button) topside control panel, or your topside panel did receive the message to turn it off and the circuit board is not responding.
  • If you have some kind of indicator light when you press your Jet/pump button, if the topside panel is operational and does actually receive your request to either turn on or off an appliance, an indicator will appear - either a light or icon.
    • If one does appear when button pressed, then dis-appears when pressed, that means your panel is good - as it is responding to the pressing of the associated button.
      • Bad circuit board
    • If nothing appears when you press the button, no lights or icons - indication of topside receiving your request, then you you have a dead button.
      • Bad Topside Control Panel

Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.16719000 pushpad buttons lights flashing and won't work.


Press "high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash"

All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.

**NOTE** if you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.

Dishwasher won't start and start button doesn't light, but other buttons respond


I think you still have warranty, it sounds you have faulty control panel, even if it's new does not mean it is good.
