SOURCE: Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light

Anytime a dishwasher stops mid cycle and blinks, it is usually because of clogged drain port, and safety switch prevents next cycle, so just blinks. You will probably see bottom of tub filled with water, and float switch is preventing next cycle which is calling for more water, and obviously there is not enough room, so shuts down next cycle. Remove as much water as you can with wet vac or turkey baster to suck out water, then try and see if cycle starts.

Remove bottom of tub filter, look for drain hole usually at back of tub and see if it is clogged, usually visible at top of drain. Pretty easy to fix, just clean out the area of food waste or broken piece from glass, another common sudden blockage. If you have wet vac, place it over drain hole and cup your hand around nozzle of vac and hole to creat seal and suction to insure clog isn't in drain hose.

Good luck, FREE-BUSINESSES.com

Normal, heavy, delicate lights stuck on--cant power on or off


If you have tried to unplug from mains power and there is no difference then you will need to provide the actual model number of your dishwasher in comments field.
The Samsung error codes for Normal, Heavy , Delicate lights stuck is not listed. The closest is Normal, Heavy, Quick which relates to a Low Water level. Also confirm which lights are stuck in your case and whether these are flashing or not.

Why can't I start a program or turn my dishwasher off?


The answer, I believe, is to turn on the dishwasher then hold down the Start button for 3 seconds (minimum) to reset the machine.

Child lock is on and I cant get it off


To turn on Lock, press and hold CONTROL LOCK button for 3 seconds.
The Control Lock light will stay on for a short time, indicating that it is activated, and all buttons are disabled.
If you press any button while your dishwasher is locked, the light flashes 3 times and an audible tone will sound.
The dishwasher door can still be opened/closed while the controls are locked.

To turn off Lock, press and hold for 3 seconds. The light turns off.

If this was at all helpful please click on the 4 Thumbs Up helpfulness rating icon you see on this page.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Miele g892 and just like everyone the red light comes on and dishwasher stops running> why cant you answer thic common problem>


The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on.
The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold
the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.

Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the
Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and
Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode

Maytag Dishwasher flashing lights


I have the same problem with the lights flashing on the control panel. It pops up every 4 or 5 months. The only solution I have found is to press the delay/resume button one time then press the drain/off button twice. You may have to hold the keys down for a couple of seconds. This seems to reset something in the panel. Make sure you haven't pressed the 3 second lock button or it won't work.

STUCK ON HEAVY WASH


First of all, if you've turned off the Correct power source it would stop running. Keep trying to find the correct circuit breaker. The power must be discontinued and let the dishwasher sit for at least 5 minutes so it can "forget" the program. However, if the same program comes back on, then I suggest holding down the heavy wash symbol continually for several seconds. Or perhaps holding down the cancel symbol for several seconds instead. It sounds like the heavywash symbol is stuck or broken behind it's cover. If the symbol was "jiggled" alittle to the right or left it may become "unstuck". Hope some of this helps you.

God Bless You and your family,

Miss Midget

All the lights are flashing on Maytag Quiet Series 300


Try pressing heated wash, heated dry, then heated wash, heated dry. It should reset it. Also try pressing and holding the cancel button for 5 seconds to see if that works if the other doesnt.
