Question about Dishwashers

Westpoint wqp12 9240

My dishwasher flash 3 red lights and beep until it stops when it starts to pump out water, sometimes after the wash cycle, mostly after the rinse cycle. When I switch it off, and start a new cycle, it pumps out the water that was left in the machine with no problem. After a few washing cycles, and without any detergant, it goes through the whole cycle. I use Bio-Crystal Dishwashing Powder, it seems to make a lot of foam? Please advice.

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

SOURCE: The dishwasher is making odd

Hard objects such as bone, plastic ware, glass, seeds, fruit pits, nuts, egg shells may have lodged in the filter area of the dishwasher or in the sump/water module.

Check the bottom of the dishwasher for debris. Carefully, remove any of these objects if they can be seen at the bottom of the dishwasher. Caution: Foreign objects may be sharp.

Note: The noise should stop within 2-3 cycles after object is ground up. If noise continues after 2 or more cycles a technician may need to remove debris from the sump or pump area

Note: Items such as bone or other hard objects should be scraped from the dishes PRIOR to loading them in the dishwasher.

My delay light has come on and I cant get the dishwasher to start. The delay light goes out after the time has expired but if you try to move it to the start position the light comes on again


The Control is programmed to stop running and not allow any further cycles if it detects a water heating problem (no temperature increase detected in heated Main Wash on 3 consecutive cycles). The Control will flash the Clean LED 7 times repeatedly and will disable the Start/Resume key until cleared.

To clear and reset the control press in this order: Heated Dry ? Normal ? Heated Dry ? Normal and then let the unit run for 1-2 minutes and then press Cancel and let the dishwasher complete the cancel cycle. The dishwasher should operate normally again unless it does not detect a temperature rise in the main wash cycle.

It could be caused by a Heater circuit problem if it continues to stop and flash the Clean light.

It could have one of the following failures:
Open in heater.
Open connection or component in heater circuit.
Faulty heater drive circuit on control.
It can also be caused by the wash pump not pumping water past the heater efficiently.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

Why Whirlpool ADG-6558/1 IX stops sometimes the wash cycle after 15/30 min?

It is very likely the flood switch trips part through the cycle. One cause is too much foaming due to incorrect detergent. The other is splashing of water from the drawer due to slightly leaky lid seal. Check out both these situations in particular if the red flashing only occurs temporarily and you are able to restart the dishwasher after sometime.

Flashing but nothing happening


A-- If you hear the water filling for 3 minutes before the lights flash, 2 things could be happening:
a.1) water never reached the proper fill/run level so the computer prevents the heater from starting and alerts the user. There should be a code list in the troubleshooting section of the user manual describing the blinking lights and what they mean.
Solution- verify by sound if water flows at the same rate as the sink tap, if not then shut off the water and check the inside the connection hose for debris against the screen inside the hose end or insid ethe machine end where there is a intake valve. The debris keeps sediment out so it works but there's no auto cleaner for the screen.
a.2) Otherwise the heater itself is faulty meaning it does not conduct an electrical path or maybe overheating (could be dry) and the computer senses the wrong temperature either too high or too low.
Solution- A service call to determine the reason why; heater continuity, water valve, heater relay, hi-temp fuse, etc.

B-- Now, if you do NOT hear water filling for those first 3 minutes, 3 things could be happening;
b.1) House water supply is turned off.
b.2) hose is clogged (see solution a.1 above)
b.3) Drain pump inside dishwasher was clogged during the last run and old water didn't drain out (maybe some water is evident in the tub bottom).
Solution- Most dishwashers start each wash cycle with 30 second drain pump running to make sure the tub is completely emptied so the next fill cycle can't overfill. This ensures that if the user finds a 3 liter pot that flipped over during the last wash and if they dump that full pot of water into the unit to make it lighter, that the water will get drained before the new water enters the tub.
If the drain pump is clogged reset the power and restart the wash cycle. Note how much water is in the tub and see if it goes down any during those 30 seconds by opening the door afterwards. Find the clog either a bone or plastic bag or some small pice of a childs toy is stuck in the drain pump or the other end is clogged maybe by grease or bones if you have a sink disposal unit. The things they grind up drop into the drain 1" inch above the hole for the dishwasher drain tube.
NOTE: There is also an overfill [float] switch if the water inlet valve gets stuck open and the water keeps filling, the drain pump is switched on until someone comes and shuts off the water supply. When the tub drains the float drops and the drainpump stops. This will also make lights blink so check the user manual for codes or call the factory service reps [1-877-337-3639].
Either way, there should be instructions to reset the machine for restart. If it doesn't reset you need someone to fix the control that tripped the unit, maybe a safety fuse or a broken piece of the puzzle.

When i turn the dishwasher on it start but when it whant's to wash the two red lights goes on and machine beep and stop washing.


After the intital cycle of the water inlet vavle opening the program shifts to the next mode But since there is errors on the controller the machine shuts off with an alarm.
Now check the front door opening switches, check the washer pumps, check the drain cycle/pump.
remove and check the door switch contacts, the pump and the drain.

I have a Danby DDW1899WP portable dishwasher. I just got it yesterday. I had a lot of dirty dishes so I did 1 cycle first and it worked perfectly, I was impressed. I then started a 2nd cycle for the rest...


I realize the above question is almost 4 years old, but I am sure others are still having this problem. My Danby was behaving the same way: drying cycle light would flash like it was having a myocardial infarction, and the cycle would stop. I could only get the light to stop flashing by turning the unit off. What you didn\'t say above is what happens then: everything most likely returns to normal-- or at least, so it seems. I have now had this happen to me two times in a row with my Danby 1899WP. Each time the machine has started up just fine, drains water out, loads in fresh water, and begins the wash cycle, only to freeze up with that damn flashing red light on the dry cycle and the dishes not clean. I have owned it for about two months, and so far this is my only complaint. I am running it again right now, for the third time, and we shall see what that light does now.... Will report back afterward!

do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!
