SOURCE: Viking VDB450SS i have the same

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.

SOURCE: dishwasher viking model vdb450ss error

Hello there,

If you're certain this model number is correct, the error code indicates a "drain timeout error". This means the machine has tried and failed to pump out within a specified time limit. Please run through the following checklist to correct this problem:

1. Check and clean the filters
2. Check the drain hose isn't kinked and check for any blockages in the drain hose.
3. Make sure the hose has a high loop as per the installation instructions
4. If draining into a garbage disposal . . .

- Remove the plug from the disposal to allow air entry / eliminate any potential vacuum.
- Run water through the disposal to check for blockages

5. Ensure dishwasher is level, front to back and left to right.

When you've checked all of the above, reset the dishwasher by holding the START button for a minimum of four seconds to clear the error message.

My slight question mark over the model number is because you referred to "heavy cycle". The VDB450SS does have a heavy cycle but it's called "pot & pans" on this model. Other Viking dishwashers explicity say "Heavy" but a flashing LED above heavy on another model may indicate an entirely different fault. This is an overfill error code on some models.

If you definitely have the VDB450SS, you should be able to solve the problem using the checklist above. If you have any other model. please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question for further assistance. Please verify the correct model number if/when replying and whether any other LEDs are also flashing.

Thanks,
BElectric

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Check the door latch switch mechanism as that seems to be bad and needs replacement as everything else is working fine. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My viking vdb325ss dishwasher runs for a few minutes and then stops with control pad lights blinking. The "normal cycle" and "pots and pans" lights blink together. I have reset and restarted the dis


Hello Peter!

Your owners manual or a call to Viking should help you decode the blinking panel lights. They are not random and are a desperate cry for help from the machine.

It has been my experience (YMMV) that a common dishwasher problem in older machines is accumulated grunge (the technical term) in the water level sensor. In many cases the sensor lives in a plastic container on the side of the DW and although the designers try hard to avoid contamination, the container eventually loads up and intermittently jams the float.

Before I pulled the unit however, I'd check the bottom of the wash cabinet for contaminants. There may be an screen (under a cover plate) that has clogged.

Your situation sounds a bit different, since my Samsung did not pump out water, it just stopped and flashed a code, but who knows? Go for the low-hanging, common issues first.

All the best.

The normal and economy lights are blinking and cannot get to wash through a full cycle. water is in the bottom of the washer


You will have to check if the dishwasher is stuck in the drain cycle or wash cycle.

The normal and economy lights flashing means there is flooding in the unit.

Reset the unit by pressing START button for 4 secs. If the flashing does not stop then you have to call the technician. There may be a leakage which is causing the flood switch to activate.

I have a viking dishwasher that is not a year old yet. I start it and within 5 min the lights start blinking on it, so it stops?


can you please confirm which light is blinking.
Does it take in water before it stops?
Refer page 34 and 35 in this manual once you check which light is flashing.

Hope this helps.

Viking refrigerator drawers


"888" on the older version of the drawers (pre-2007) meant that the unit has one or both thermistors were out of normal range. The main control board will blink code as well. You can normally see it through the bottom grill. One blink for evaporator thermsitor, two blinks for display thermistor and three for both.
