Question about Bauknecht 24 in. GSF8971 Built-in Dishwasher
It's a somewhat older model, but perhaps you can help anyway.
After moving to a new apartment, the dishwasher won't work.
The START button is blinking and one of the program buttons is on (the last we used = the rinse button on the left). i couldn't get rid of the blinking.
I suspected it has to do with the water pump and I added some water at the bottom, which didn't help. Disconnecting and reconnecting the power won't help either.
The water pressure in the apartment is lower than the pressure in the previous apartment, but it still seems reasonable.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these points must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect. The error indication can be a short in the circuit, check the heater circuit and the pump motor.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
