SOURCE: Have Whirlpool dishwasher Gold Series,

sounds like the door is losing contact with the door switch, first thing i would check is the door strike.Metal strike plate located on the tub itself that the door latch catches as it closes. its a spring metal striker, i would try bending it down a little bit to ensure better contact with the switches inside the door itself . next id open the control panel and check to make sure your door switches are secured well, wires are tight.

SOURCE: Viking Dishwasher won't start. All the lights continue blinking and it sounds as if a motor is continually running.

What had changed since you last use it? Prior day? Also when last did you clean out the filters for it?

1. Drain Pump
2. Block Drain (blocked or kinked)
3. Valve Leakage

The electronic display has detected a sensor fault on the unit for the flashing you see. Check the filters and drain pump. Make sure nothing is clog also the line where the hot water goes to it. I know you said you have it under protection for 5 years and that's up right so some parts might need to be replace. If you go down to your main breaker for the unit you can trip it off and on and see if that clears it up but I you might have a serious problem with it.

Now you got 2 options.

1. Call up Viking and get an estimate of how much it will cost to repair the damage.

2. If the cost is greater than buying a brand new one then, better off getting another one then. If not then get it repaired.

SOURCE: pots and pans and normal wash blinking

Try resetting it. Locate the switch in your breaker box, and flip it off- then on again. Hope that works!

SOURCE: The Normal Wash light blinks constantly. I cannot

Try unplugging it for 15 then plug it back in. It should reset itself. Sometimes water temp sensors or water level sensors can get dirty or corroded and give you this error.

Buttons on the dishwasher's control panel is not working. When starting a "normal" load, it switches to "clean" and does not start the wash.


Hello. Most likely, the humming sound you hear is a jammed drain pump which is activated immediately to pump out any stale or standing water below the level which you can see. Then, fresh, hot water enters the tub to start washing the dishes. I need the model number and exactly what lights are blinking--those blinking lights are error codes(combinations of 2 or more lights, one light blinking a certain number of times, then blinking again, a different number of times--ex 3 times, then 7 times) the lights blink a binary error code--thats why I need the model number to look up the code on the chart

Maytag Washer Lid lock light


Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

Tassimo Coffee Maker: Tell me how to operate it. I can fill the water, put the pod in and all the lights keep flashing. Pressing the start/stop button does nothing.


• All lights will blink the first time you turn on your
machine. This is your cue to prepare your machine for use by
following the quick instructions in Step 1 on separate insert.
• If the water level runs low while you are preparing a
beverage, all lights will flash. Simply remove and refill the
water container, and brewing will continue automatically
where it left off. It should not be necessary to discard the T-DISC
and start over.
• The AUTO light will blink throughout the brewing process.
Some drinks require a pause in brewing as part of the recipe
for brewing your perfect cup - this is to allow the optimal flavors
to unfold and is a normal part of the brewing process. The AUTO
light will continue to blink throughout this process.

HOW TO MAKE A DRINK
• Place the mug of your choice on the cup stand.
• When the STANDBY light illuminates, insert the T-DISC® of your choice
and close the clamp.
• The HEATING light will blink as the brewer heats the water to the
optimal temperature for your drink.
• Once the proper temperature is reached, the AUTO light will
illuminate. When it lights up, press the start/stop button to begin
the brew cycle.
• The AUTO light will continue to flash throughout the brewing cycle.
PLEASE NOTE: Some beverages have a pause in brewing
after the initial influx of water into the T-DISC®.
• The MANUAL light will illuminate when your drink is ready.

The program light won't stop blinking


Same here. I'm dead in the water. This started happening a few weeks ago and with patience and luck and different combos of buttons I'd get it to stop and I was able to brew. Today it just stopped completely. The program light either blinks constantly or stays lit constantly, but I cannot brew coffee. I see lots of people online with this problem, but have yet to see a solution.

Lights on the Asko D1996 keep blinking


This depends on the blinking pattern. Of the eight lights on the panel, if the four on the left blink on and then the right four lights blink on as the left ones go off, and keep blinking back and forth, that just means the mode has been set and the Start button pressed. After closing the door it should just continue on wherever it is in the cycle. (This is normal operation).
If you hold down the Start button, this resets the dishwasher. If you then close the door, nothing will happen because it thinks it's done.
If the lights are blinking in a different pattern, such as they all blink on and off in unison, that indicates an error condition and needs to be diagnosed. If the pump is not running constantly, then at least it's not because water is leaking out somewhere.

Technics SUV500 problem in stand-by


The problem is not the relay. The unit is trying to start, but detecting a problem and shuting down again. Check the output transistors for a shorted condition.
