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.

SOURCE: Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't

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 must be used so that the final rinse water will sheen off of the dishes to accommodate this drying process. The heater element at the bottom of the tub is used to add heat during the drying cycle to aid in this process as well. This model of dishwasher does not have any forced air circulation system. Here are some tips that may help you resolve your drying problem:

  • Make sure that you are using rinse aid. Failure to properly use rinse aid can prevent proper drying. Adjust the amount that is dispensed if necessary. Also, check to make sure that rinse aid level decreases over time indicating that it is being dispensed properly.
  • The NORMAL WASH and POT & PANS cycles heat the final rinse water up to 140 degrees F. Use these cycles to help the drying process.
  • Do not choose the air dry option. This option cuts off the heater element during the drying process. NOTE: The heater element is not turned on during the first 6 minutes of the drying portion of the cycle.
  • Do not overload the dishwasher. Load the dishes to allow for proper water drainage.
This dishwasher has a heater fault detection circuit. If the heater is not working, the control will detect the lack of increase in water temperature. The dishwasher will stop and the CLEAN light will blink seven times repeatedly. The dishwasher would not be able to be used until the problem is corrected and the control is reset.

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!

Control lock light is on and dishwasher doesn't start


There is a Control Lock which locks all the control buttons, so the dishwasher cannot be started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 3 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the light goes out. A single beep will be heard when the feature is turned on.

There is also a Keylock feature which locks the drawer shut and disables all the controls so the dishwasher cannot be opened or started. It is enabled by pressing and holding the lock button for about 5 seconds. To disable, press and hold the lock button until the lock light goes out. Two beeps will be heard when the feature is turned on.

Both these functions are safety features that enable the consumer to lock the dishwasher controls to prevent children from inadvertently starting the appliance.

These instructions are on page 12 of your owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just go to the site and type in your number under the "Manuals" link. These manuals are available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

Hotpoint BC1450 Light 2 normal flashes


Flashing lights, pump running even when turned off. Had to switch off at the socket. The vibration from the machine had managed to give a quarter turn to the appliance gate valve, the type with the little blue handle. I could see the indentation in the rear rubber panel on the back of the dishwasher. Unscrewed the little blue handle, pushed the machine back in and started working as normal. :)

I can't get the control panel to reset. The wash cycle light comes on but it just beeps and the dishwasher won't start. I press the start button and it stops beeping for a minute but it still...


II might need the actual model number. However, you can go to page 9 on this manual and check if the flashing options can fix the problem. I am assuming you have already tried to turn the power off and back on.

The ohter thing to try is the reset sequence. Within 6-7 secs press High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry/ High Temp/ Heat Dry. All lights should light up, press Start button to exit.

Intake/Drain light is flashing and dishwasher won't do anyhting. I gve cleaned the filetr and still nothing


Hi


Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. You would need to check for air gap on the dishwasher, it may be clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining, sometimes the drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized (or stuck) drain pump. Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections & remove motor (single screw holds motor, it is on the outside back of the machine). Try to rotate the motor (use WD40 is necessary). If you cannot rotate it, then motor will be required. If the error still appears then cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The Drying light flashes and the unit beeps about once per second. At the same time the unit acts like it is washing (sounds of water washing insiide. The bottom is oompletely full of water.


so its beeping and flashing once per second correct this beeping and flashing is an error code that your unit is giving blinking lights or beeping sounds may indicate a problem with the dishwasher caused by power surges. To correct the problem, try pressing the "Start/Reset" pad to reset the dishwasher. If the problem persists, reset (reboot) the control by turning off the circuit breaker supplying the dishwasher for 30 seconds. Turn the circuit breaker back on and the dishwasher should function normally if you still have the flashing and beeping message me back Im going through the error code book as I type this if it still persists after you turned off the power then back on message me back with the number of beeps within 60 seconds as well as the number of flashing lights for instance if it does it every second or once every 5 seconds also if you have any further questions message me back them as well and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situaitons Thanks Rick

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start


Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.
