Hello Friend,

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

Try this remedy.

When we have an error code this is the remedy.
This can reset the system.
First turn it off.
Cut power to the washer at the breaker and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.
Write back right away and let me know that it worked and solved the problem .
Bless You

How old is the appliance?








Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Hi.

Re:" It then turns itself back on again 30 minutes later, works without water and then turns off again 10 minutes later."

That sounds as a shot electronic control board. It is hardly possible that any other single component alone may cause all those symptoms .

Before replacing timer control (which is expensive) better testing door lock, water level switch and inlet valve.
Most important part to test is the door latch, which can interrupt the cycle and cause random restart. This is tested by jumping its contacts.

To get parts or to contact a technician call the support number that you find on the use and care manual.

Integrated Smeg dishwasher keeps stopping and starting with a beep every few seconds. Tried switching off at mains, filling salt


Try pushing on the door, to see if the stopping/restarting stops, I am guessing your door switch may be wore a bit, and maybe out of adjustment when closing. sometimes the mounting hardware slips out of place, and the door switch in not engaging enough to stay on.

Deactivate childlock on fully integrated neff dishwasher


If door won't close and you don't have a child-lock, just push the door closed a lot harder than you normally would - NEFF manual says to do that, and it worked for me! I think it just forces it to engage and 'releases' the catch, as after that it closed with just normal pressure applied.

Ariston dish washer door will not shut properly.


Hello,
Check that something has not got wedged behind the top basket stopping it closing fully.If that is ok what can happen is that if there is something causing the door not closing fully ,when you try to close door to do a wash instead of the little hook actuator in the door switch fully engaging with the clasp on the body of unit,it closes down before it engages.It is like a finger hooking over say the top of your trousers.If you turn power off and get 2 small screwdrivers and carefully put them either side of the hook on door then try to bring it back to its open position.

Hope this helps.

Door well not stay closed.our door hinges replaceable


If your machine is a Hobart LX series, changing the hinges will probably not remedy your door closing issue.

I'd start at the door magnet. It's located under the handle at the top RH side of the door. Verify that it is there. Next I'd check to see if the other magnet is in place at the top front RH side of the top interior 'ceiling'. It's held in place by a bracket that runs the entire width of the unit.

When the door is closed, these two magnets attract to each other with a firm "snap" and that is what keeps the door closed.

If your door wants to spring open slightly or lazily rest closed without the above mentioned "snap" then you'll need to visually inspect the bottom edge of the door for any cracks or deformation, particularly in the corners. This deformation will cause the bottom of the door to bind against the lower threshold of the machine and keep it from closing. You'll have to remove the door to properly inspect and reform it.

Sadly, my money is on the door being deformed in some way. Hope this helps.
