    I'm getting the same problem with my Simpson 960 Energy Saver. Works ok some of the time, but usually stops mid-cycle with no warning and the Heavy wash light just flashes.
    Will allow you to restart, but usually fails on subsequent attempts also.
    Everything's clean, draining ok, it has power,etc, just doesn't complete its cycle.
    Any ideas?

Hi,

I had the same problem. its apparently due to a sensor that thinks the overflow tray (in the very bottom) has water in it..... I checked, and mine didn't....... but I found that putting the machine on a pre-wash, then doing the main wash worked everytime.....

Hope this helps

SOURCE: Top spray arm not connected to anything so dishes dont wash properly

as long as you have a spout mounted in the middle of the top basket, everything is fine , water will spray from top nozzel (mounted in ceiling of dishwasher) into spout entering spray arm.

Recently had leak in water between mains and house. Pipe replaced.Then washing machine wouldn't fill.Replaced solenoid valve -works now.The dishwasher Simpson EZISET 52B850WJ*03 won't fill.Same?


Could be dirt in the water lines after you repaired. You should always run your taps for a while before running machines that use water. I like to run water from my out side taps if I have outside repairs.

Hi, my simpson eziset 950 when filling with water doesn't stop filling when the cycle starts. Water overflows all through the washing cycle. When I turn the tap of it stops filling.


there is a small tube running from the bottom of the tub up to a pressure switch in the control panel that is set by what ever wash level you want
when the pressure in that tube exceeds the pressure set by the knob it does 2 things
it turns off the inlet water solenoid to stop water coming in and then starts the wash cycle
as it is starting the wash cycle , it indicates that the stop solenoid for the water inlet is either still getting power or the stop valve is faulty
try replacing that water control valve first

How to reset Kenmore Elite 665-16572202 Dishwasher...clean light blinks 7 times pauses then repeats. My model does not have a Heated Dry button it has an Air Dry button.


Here's the key sequence(s) to use, depending on how your keys are labeled:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.

This will start the diagnostic cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error. Please note, that this clears the error, but if you haven't found the cause (water-not-heating error), the condition will come right back the next time you run the dishwasher.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

The "rinse only" button will


Hi

If rinse light is flashing then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

Green clean light wont stop blinking unable to use dishwasher . It is an energy saver. the drain button works ..and when you push start the light comes on but will not run for cleaning


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Water is not hot enough


What a great energy saver response....run water through another tap in the house in order to fill the pipes with hot water! I have the same problem; cannot even get WARM water in my tub. I have 2 solutions: #1, on my incoming water pipes are regular faucet handles which I am going to attach a hose on the hot side that will reach into the washer and manually mix the temperature. #2, purchase an old refurb washer at a used appliance store that HAS a hot-water setting and hope they will take the "wonderful, new energy saver" as a trade. There are just some times you really need HOT water. I can't imagine washing diapers in cold, although I haven't had to do that in many years. Energy saving factory settings: capital "B", capital "S"!!!

Dishwasher starts then stops


My (KUDI01TJ)Dishwasher did the same thing.
I Pressed start, it acted like it was starting and then turned off.

FIX:
I started the rapid advance service diagnostic feature:
1.Close dishwasher door
2.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
3.press "Energy Saver Dry"
4.press "Hi-Temp Wash"
5.press "Energy Saver Dry"
This started the diagnostics and the dishwasher went through each cycle.
After this, my dishwasher worked fine.

I think the controller must have got in some wierd mode and unpluging the washer would not clear it out but running the
diagnostics cleared it.
Hope this works for you
