Question about Hoshizaki KM-630M Crescent Cuber Ice Maker

Wash Cycle wont kick on

Came into work and noticed the 3 beep alarm sequence. Everything I've read said to reset and wash before trouble shooting the problem. So I reset, but now I cant get the wash cycle to kick in.. If I switch it to wash, nothing happens at all. If I switch to on, the water starts to run, but nothing freezes. I'm almost certain that all it needs is a good cleaning, any suggestions as to how I can get the wash cycle to do it's thing?

3 beeps, Freeze Timer, not freezing. Obviously as you said, the water just runs. Problem may be the refrigerant gas has leaked out and the compressor wont run without gas due to a pressure switch. If it leaked overnight, it must have left oil residual stains where it leaked out. Could be copper wore thru where two lines rub against each other, I had this problem on a thin 1/8" line to the pressure switch.
Other cause for the three beeps is the float switch is stuck. Try tapping on it and check for water fill for it to sense, remove it and dip it in LCR or Lime Away , equivalent Hoshizaki recommended. Try freeing the switch or even bypass it if you know electrical.
The water valve should not leak thru, you mentioned the compressor never starts up?
The cleanning cycle, there is a micro switch mounted to the valve, this switch may not be working right and will not let the unit run, as a probable cause.
Bottom line is I think your gas leaked out or the float switch is stuck, and the manual water valve position sensor switch is bad.

How to reset a Kenmore 668.1687582 dishwasher


Yes, depending on the model, and the buttons that your dishwasher has, try the following key sequences:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry). You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up for a few seconds.
On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.

Washing machine cycle far too long


Hi Fiona.I believe the cold valve is probably faulty & is not flowing fast Its probably dribbling water in?taking forever to fill.the machine should be giving up & beeping at you if thats the case.If you have a faulty cold valve then switching to warm won't help as the hot valve will close itself off to compensate for the lack of cold water..afterall you have told the machine to fill with warm,,if it cant make warm water because of a faulty cold valve then the hot will decrease to a point where its not letting any water thru..try a hot only wash..if it goes thru wash cycle ok then good chance its cold valve problem.wow i hope that helped.

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

Try pressing the following key pad buttons within 5 seconds - PREWASH OPTIONS - WASH TIME, PREWASH OPTIONS - WASH TIME, in this sequence and allow the washer to run. The LED display will start counting down as the washer begins a sequence of short diagnostics tests. If no error is present, the washer will return to standby. If the error persists, you may have a blockage in your drain pump. Please run the test and let me know the results. Total test time is about 1 minute 40 seconds. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard 3 dishwasher problem


call sears, 1-800-4MY-HOME. They have a trouble-shooting department that will get rid of this problem. It is caused by water temperature being wrong at the start of the cycle.... blah, blah, blah. The representative will tell you to push a certain set of buttons in a certain order and that unlocks the dishwasher.

Sorry I don't know the sequence

I believe there is a setting where you can turn the beeping alarm off completely. Read the manual and you should find it.

Dishwasher fills with water... wont wash


usually if the motor is not kicking in then it is a blocked/seized wash motor or a broken wire somewhere from the timer to the motor. either will mean a stripdown. try checking out the motor first.
