Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Mistral MDW12E that as soon as I push the power button the water starts to fill and does not stop. Even when I start a cycle and it starts to drain the water, it continues to fill.

Please read the question also. This machine has been stitting for 12 months and I have gone to use it and it. The filters are clean, pipes are clear, both pumps turn and I'm not sure where to go next.

It sounds like the main controller board switching circuit for the intake valve has become defective its usually a triac that switches the power to the valves...

you will prob need to replace it
or the board level fault can be repaired by a decent tech

I have a Scotsman CME 506 ice maker. After running a cleaning cycle it won't run. After resetting the freeze light blinks and nothing happens. The water inlet valve never opens (the sump is current


CM3 Operational Sequence.
From Off, push and release the freeze button.
1. If sump is full,water pump starts.If sump is not full,water valve opens to fill it.
2. Compressor starts when sump is full.Air cooled fan motor starts too.
3. water pump stops early in freeze cycle for 30 seconds.
4. Sump refills after pump starts.
5. In low ambient condition,fan motor may begin to cycle on and off.
6. Freeze continues until water level in sump drops to preset point. Exceptions: SCE275 must fill sump two more times.
7. Fan may shut off before the end of freeze.
8. Harvest begins. Hot gas valve opens,pump stops.
9. Pump restarts, inlet water valve opens to fill and overflow the reservoir.
10. Harvest continues for preset first cycle harvest time.
11. If bin is not full, cycle repeats ( compressor stays on). If bin is full, unit shuts off at the end of harvest.
OK with that out of the way unless you unplugged any wires cleaning the machine should not have caused any problems. First cut off water and pull water supply line from water inlet valve look in the end of valve there is a screen in there it could be stopped up. If the valve screen is not stopped up then put supply water line back on and turn water back on. power the CM3 controller off. push freeze button. now with a voltage meter check at the water inlet valve to make sure you are getting power to the valve.If you are then either valve is stopped up or valve is bad. If you are not getting power to valve then replace the CM3 controller now make sure the bin full light is not on because if it is this will not let controller go back to a freeze cycle.

Why does drain motor start when pushing the start button on the door before the door is closed?


It's almost certainly the float switch in the bottom of the machine. In the bottom is a polystyrene 'float' that is either active due to water in the bottom or is faulty. Tip your machine to the side and remove water and try again, bridge or replace switch is also an option

by the descrition you are giving you will need to replace the main control board.Part number 154568401.you may also need to check the float switch.The part will run about 110.00 dollars from a local parts store

DISHWASHER GE PDW7800J00BB DOES NOT WASH ,FILLS WITH WATER BUT NO WASH


It is unclear from your description if the wash pump starts and pushes the water around but never stops cycle or the dishwasher stops as soon as the water is filled.

If you do not hear the wash pump start then it is possible the wash motor is faulty. But if the wash pump starts and never completes the wash cycle then it is possible the heater is faulty and dishwasher is waiting for water to heat up before it can go to next cycle.

See the attached diagram for location of wash pump motor and heater.

Hope this helps you find the problem. Please rate the solution if you found it useful.

Hi, our Indesit IDL500 dishwasher has stopped working. The fault light 2 is flashing. The manual doesn't mention what fault this indicates. Any ideas. Cheers, Neil


Hi Niel, If you were to start the cycle from the beginning, where in the cycle does this occur? . So many code numbers for so many units, hard to keep up .Just note if heating is taking place and if drainage is correct. Hear from you soon.

My Asko W6661 washing machine water inlet fault would come on so I check the water inlet line and filter and everything was ok, but the water still would not come into the machine. I than check the...


As the solenoid should should remain power free and closed until the programmer tells the circuit board to switch on the power, it could conceivably be either or both of those things, though I feel the chances are greater the circuit board is at fault.

Asko W6761 - seems fine, starts to fill 40 seconds then stops!


Hello, my W6761 becomes the same. When it happens, you can clear the problem by "soft ware reset". Following is the procedure:
1. Power it on
2. Push Start/Stop buttom 5 times
3. Push "Enter", ">", "<", "Menu" buttons (from right to left)
4. Again, push "Enter", ">", "<", "Menu" buttons
5. Wait for 30 seconds that the above soft ware cycle resets the internal status
6. Power it off and on, again
7. You need to execute above "soft ware reset" within 15 seconds

Start washing and check to see if above reset the problem.
If it does not begin to work, repeat above "soft ware reset" cycle until it begins to work.
My W6761 once needed to repeat above cycle 7 times to solve the problem.
This problem happens in mostly in warmer season, so this will be related with high ambient or water temperature.

ASKO technician may replace the controller but even with the replaced controller, this problem often happens.
