SOURCE: cycle control lights flashing all at same time

are you sure you have cleaned all the water outlets as when these get blocked and the water builds up the dishwash will go into a standby mode as a sefety precaution to stop your kitchen getting flooded if it was me i would take off all water outlet pipes and use boiling water and a good cleaning fluid it only takes a little blockage and then it will cut off so clean all pipes through properly and then try again is the water going into the dish washer before it cuts off or is their no water going into it either if you post back ill have a nother look for you hope this is some help i had same prob with mine but it was different brand of washer but after cleaning all pipes inlet and outlet it worked fine and is still working now use good limescale remover cause if you live in hard water area then this is probably you problem .......................................................

SOURCE: Viking Dishwasher Leaks Into Base

Since this was posted in May I guess it's been fixed but for those of you seeing this problem for the first time, here's one reply:

This sounds exactly like the problem I just found with my DFUD042. There is a small black hose between the base of the tub and a pump motor - part number on the hose is 8072888. The hose has a small **** or crack in it and water is leaking which is most likely the problem causing the symptoms. I had to throw the circuit breaker to get mine to shut off as well.

When I tried to remove the plate it was stuck under the black sound proofing so I had to work around it a bit until it finally came off. Now I just have to find the hose and some clamps.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not start

you can hold the start atop button down for 5 seconds to re set it or you can turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher for 20 sec. That should help. If not, it probably is a bad celenoid which a repairman needs to replace

Yes there is the Water Div valve, it diverts the water between the wash arms.

Please check the door switch in the first place , remove power to the washer and check the continuity of the switch , Now trace the wires to the main panel controller check on the connections on the main panels, check all the wires leading from the main panel to the valves, pump and the motor.
Once you have made sure that the connections are correct, then check the cycle/program as the washer is switched on.
The blinking is an error and is related to a processor resetting due to its failure or an input problem.
There are no controls active on the customer pad and so no reset is possible.
Remove the power and remove the controller unit , warm up the unit to clear off any moisture. Disconnect one by one the outputs , the valve, the pump, heater and the motor.
If the blinking is relative to a short then the related removal of wire to the circuit will bring back the controller to reset.
If none of these works the possible fault can be the controller unit.

My Viking DFUD042 is stuck in drain cycle while fresh water is entering the dishwasher through the grid on the right side. The pump is working continuously and it only stops after I turn off the power. ...


Hi, this could be a bad control board or a bad motor. It uses the same motor to wash as to drain. It just changes the direction of the motor in order to switch from drain to wash.
You'll need to run a cycle and you will need a multimeter to check which one needs to be replaced. Remove the kick panel and check the grey wire to the ground wire when it should be washing. If you have 120 volts, you need to order and replace your control board. Otherwise, if you don't have power and it's still draining, you need to order and replace the motor.

It doesn't clean well I have bought rinse lemishine and it doesn't clean dishes and leaves a white residue I'm using cascade


Hi



White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.


Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

It sounds like one of two things: Inside the door are simple micro switches on the latch assembly it could be that one of these is not making a good contact or is misaligned. Secondly the latch on the top of the dishwasher could be loose meaning that it is not engaging the latch mechanism inside the door itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if you get anywhere with that!

MODEL#DFUD042PSS STAYING ON DRAINING CYCLE


The draining cycle remaining on is an indication that the anti flood sysyem (polystireen float / micro switch) at the bottom has been activated via a water leak. This anti flood system puts the pump motor on and shuts the inlet water. Dry the water at the base / find the leak or blocked pipe causing the water and this should rectify your problem.
