    To clairify the dishwasher is a Kenmore and it is two years old. The breaker is fine, but the light on the cycle board just flashes and it wont even pump out the water from the bottom of the dishwasher. I can't get it to do anything.

    Is it the clean light button thats flashing? If it is then you have a heating circuit problem the button will flash like 7 times in a row then pause. 98% of the time the element is the problem. Write back and I will tell you how to unlock it from the flashing. If only the clean light is flashing

The problem is that you are having an overfill issue. You can fix this by extracting the water from the over fill pan. you will have to take the toe kick off and then take that panel off which should have 3 screws on each side and requires a 20 tork screwdriver to get it off. after that is taking off there is a wiring harness that you will see put your hand right under the wiring harness and feel in the over fill pan if there is water you will have to extract it with a sponge or a turkey baster. when you get the unit put back together then reset your unit by holding the start/stop button for 7 secs and that should fix your issue

My Dishwasher has a rapid flashing light


I get the same problem with a pepeating beep warning. Only solution I've found is to switch it off using off button then switch it back on. It waits a few seconds then finishes the program and drains. The dishes still seem to be quite damp after. Hope this helps

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

Hotpoint dish washer aquarius


I had the same problem with my Hotpoint Aquarius the eco and fast light flashing, it would go through the pre wash cycle and stop.
I cleaned the filters etc; and it still didn’t work.
I turned the machine off and unplugged it at the mains,
I drained all the water, turned the machine on the side and took the bottom off, I removed the drain pump off the bottom (this was held on with a single screw after taking the screw out slightly turn it to one side as its like a bayonet fit on a light bulb also remove the wire connection and a rubber drain pipe)
Once the pump was removed I could clearly see the impellor it was very tight and I couldn’t spin it after a closer examination I could see a foreign object jamming it I removed this with a pair of tweezers, replaced the pump and put it all back together and it now works perfectly.
I hope this can be of some help.
Peter.

Indesit D167. When cycle selected no water pumping or filling but 1 & 2 green indicators on.


Tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will come out ouf the bottom. Once this is clear your washer should be Ok.
Good Luck

Have a trouble: dish-washer will not drain.


I just moved into a new house and builder had provided a dish washer drain just below my kitchen drain line.

DIsh washer install was done by me, every thing worked out OK except dish washer would not drain after a wash cycle.

Cause: drain provided by builder was blocked and needed a circular small cut before mounting drain hose over it.
