Question about De Dietrich 24 in. DVF120J Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Built in De Dietrich dishwasher

My dishwasher has stopped working. It completed a full cycle day before yesterday, but wouldn't work when I went to run it this morning. An orange light has come on (on the top, to the right of the programmes) but I'm not sure what it means. It has two arrows flowing in different directions in a sort of circular movement. I've topped up both salt and rinse aid and the power is working OK. Unfortunately I don't have a manual. Please can you tell me what this symbol means and what I might need to do to get the machine to function. Thank you.

    I've tried, but sadly to no avail! I can see that I'll have to be getting the marigolds out if I don't find the answer soon...

    I have the same problem with our dishwasher - it starts to whir when I switch on but then stops and I too have a red light where the arrows are. I do not have a manual either.

Haier dishwasher did not pump out

I had problem like day the washer stopped, still half-full of water. Then, we tried to run again and we could hear the little engine working but it wouldn't let water in OR out, just error beaps.
Then my boyfriend took off the back and gently tapped the water inlet valve solenoid with his screwdriver, and now it works! Starting FILLING actually, not draining, but completed a full cycle finally!
Must have shaken loose a blockage in the mechanics in that solenoid, probably have to replace before long. But for now, success!

try pressing stop or cancel button for 10 full seconds. If this does not work, unplug the machine for 10 minutes. While unpluged, press and hold cancel or stop but for 10 seconds, then plug machine back in. If it still does not work, test the door switch with an ohmmeter to make sure the door switch is not faulty.
