Haier Stainless Steel dishwasher

Our Haier dishwasher begins a cycle but will then just stop. Sometimes this is prior to ejecting the tablet and sometimes shortly afterwards. On opening the machine the botton is flooded and the tablet is sat intact on the cutlery rack.

Re: Haier Stainless Steel dishwasher

If you can hear a humming sounf it will be the pump motor not working. If you can get to the back of the pump try and turn it by hand with the power on. If it then starts it is the motor start capacitor

Where can I find a mnaual that can tell me how to de-lime a Hobart CRS66A Dishwasher?

I doubt that the user manual covers de-liming the Hobart Dishwasher.   If I owned this (fine, expensive) dishwasher, this is what I would do.
1.) Discard any generic, ultra-cheap detergent.  Stop using gels or tablets and only use powders.  Buy a box of brand name powder (like Electrosol or Cascade)  You will be amazed how much difference that will make because the newest generics have mineral bulk added that build up faster then hard water does on both the stainless steel enclosure plus the silverware and even plates.  White patches.  I LOVE generic products and saving money, but low end dishwasher powder is one place I no longer choose a generic product.
2.) Add two cups of white vinegar to the empty dishwasher and leave it there until the morning.  Run a quick cycle with no detergent added.  The vinegar will be pumped out immediately after you begin this quick cycle.
3.) As soon as the dishwasher fills with water during that quick cycle and begins a wash cycle, add two cups of white vinegar and close the door and allow to run the full wash cycle.
4.) When the dishwasher finishes the drain cycle and begins to fill again, open the dishwasher and check the enclosure for remaining "lime" deposits.  If they remain, keep adding 2 cups white vinegar each time the dishwasher refills and begins to wash/rinse again.
You should be delighted with the results. Long term, you should consider adding a whole house water softener and then reduce the amount of dishwasher (and laundry) detergent by one half.  Amazing increase in quality of life by adding a water softener.  You will be delighted.
Please post back with you results, OK?  Good Luck!

Haier Stainless SteelDishwasher HDP18PA not washing dishes

The heater probably isn't coming on, making it so the detergent can't dissolve completely or clean very well.

To test this, pause the unit about 10 minutes into the wash cycle (hit the stop/start button) and feel the water in the bottom. It should be hot, not lukewarm.

Also, if the heater isn't working, you won't see as much steam come out when you open the door at the end of the cycle.

Until you get it fixed, try using the pots/pans cycle (I use it for every load with this machine).

PE Problem

I don't know of PE as a error for the dishwasher, however stranger things have happened.
Lg has had problems with older units prior to mar 07. They have had wires breaking in the door. If you turn off the power and remove the panel. Look for broken wires and or wires stuck in the insulation. Check for continuity as sometimes it can be an internal break. Fix this and you should be good. Oh put some insulation between before closing it up .
