Question about Dishwashers
The dishwasher won't start when turned on. The was light flashes and the machine beeps, while the motor can be heard running. It would appear that water is not getting through
It might be helpful if you are able to identify the country where you are located. I am unable to locate any specific references to this dishwasher model on the Siemens website.
In the meantime, my observation is that the flood switch is coming on. This means the water leakage detection device that is hooked up to the dishwasher is triggering and causing the water inlet valve to shut and run the drain motor in the belief the dishwasher has flooded. These dishwashers of European origin usually have the leak detector circuits hooked to the inlet water hose. Even if the hose is crimped or crushed can cause such behaviour.

Heat that is retained in the dishes is largely responsible for drying
in this dishwasher. Since plastics do not retain heat very well, they
will not dry as well as glasses, ceramics or metal dishes. Rinse aid

I've just (as of 10 minutes ago) had the same problem. I followed the advice given elsewhere in this forum and removed the bottom cover - water running out so needed a big towel to mop it up. I stood the machine upright and restarted it - no problem! it started straight away.
The question now is where is the water coming from? It seems there is obviously a leak somewhere and water is gathering in the undertray setting off the microswitch.

Follow up to my Jun 02, 2008 post. We had a service tech come out
today, and it turned out that the door switch was bad. The
neutral side had continuity with the door shut, but the hot side was
sporadic. A new switch has been ordered.
According to the Frigidaire tech sheet attached to the door, which is located beneath the control panel and behind the door skin, the problem could potentially be a bad control panel also.
Hope this helps someone in the future!
