SOURCE: ignis dishwasher model no. adl 347

I have the same problem. Having spoken to an engineer I have been told that the controller has gone. £120 for a new one plus fitting. So you are looking at a £200 bill to repair. Not worth it ???

SOURCE: Not starting wash cycle

Typically this means that there has been a water leak of some sort and there is water in the lower base pan. This is the large white plastic base that the dishwasher sits on.

If you remove the toe kick and look back past the fill valve on the extreme left side of the dishwasher about 6 to 8 inches from the front you will see a red stick that goes straight up and down. This is a mechanical linkage that activates the drain feature. Be careful as there are live connections here.

This stick rests on a round piece of Styrofoam that acts as a float. If there is water present it will cause the stick to lift and the dishwasher will go into drain. The source of the leak will have to be isolated and corrected. Most likely it is the fill float assembly as referenced at the end of this post.

If the stick is not in the upright position then there is possibly an issue with the switch mechanism itself.

You will have to pull the dishwasher out from beneath the cabinet and remove the panel covering the left hand side. If it is a full panel then there are a couple of screws holding it on from the front through side trim as viewed when the door is open if it is a half panel then it can be removed by removing the large torx screw on the lower right as seen when facing the panel.

If there is a problem with the switch then the entire mechanism should be replaced.

Try the following link to a picture for reference. It is upside down as compared to the installed one:

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

Thank you! Our dishwasher hasn't been working for so long. I've tried spinning the fan to get it unstuck a long time ago but I thought that wasn't the problem. The fan was stuck real tight and i couldn't turn it more than a quarter turn each time. This time it worked!

-Turned off power to dishwasher on circuit breaker
-Removed kick panel
-Used two screw drivers, one to turn the fan till I couldn't any more and the other one to hold the blades in place so that it wouldnt "unwind". Then I would turn the fan some more. It turned less and less each but after repeating about 5 times the fan got un-stuck.
-Turned the power back on to the dishwasher and turned the dishwasher back on and IT WORKS!

THANK YOU!!

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

The motor runs in one direction to wash and the opposite direction to pump out the water. Look at the motor direction controls to see what is starting to fail.

Washing machine fills with water but then won't wash, spin or drain


Hi Claire if your beko washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below

you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

I have a Beko DE 2541F Slimline Dishwasher and it fills and empties the water but the cycle does not start. The water does not get to the spray arms. I have tried on pre wash cycle as well so I do not...


If there are no problems of drain valve stuck, then the problem with the micro controller board.

When the water is full in the tank, the wash cycle will start with the spray arm in action. Lastly block the drain hose and see. Here water full will be detected & the machine will start if the level sensor is OK .

If m/c works here, you have to check the Solinoid valve of the drain.

Otherwise the micro controller.

For this pl take the help of the service provider as lot of programming versions are there. Some may suit or may not. If we try the will not accept after selling the board to u.

Dishwasher keeps pumping out - won't start cycle - green light flashing on panel


I had same symptoms on a Hotpoint dishwasher.
Turned out to be a failed water heater.
The logic in this case goes like this:
When wash cycle starts, the first thing the machine does is pump out any water that has collected in the sump since it was last run.
It then allows a small amount of clean water in and enables the water heater.
If heater okay, it then continues with the rest of cycle.
In this case, the control board detected failed heater so pumps out the water and then stops with an error code shown by a flashing lamp.

No simple fix I'm afraid - machine had to be turned on its side, bottom panel removed, several items had to be removed to get at the water heater which was then repalced with a new one.

You dont state what make/model your dishwasher is so maybe worth adding this information as someone else may recognise your fault and have a quick fix.
