SOURCE: my dishwasher shuts itself off

The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

Samsung dishwasher heavy and delicate lights blink and cycle stops


The lights that are blinking are indicating an error code--the particular code you describe is a "heater error". You will have to check the circuit for an open heater element, loose or broken wire, defective main control board. The part number for the main board is DE92-02256C. Hope I helped you!

Dishwasher starts in any type of cycle, runs for a minute, then shuts off as the lights blink out.


in general your wash motor can cause that. It gets old and you can hear the wash motor making a rumbling noise when it turns on. The increased load with cause a thermal coupler to turn the unit off.

Samsung dishwasher flashing heavy light


Had a look in the user manual for your dishwasher.http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201211/20121101114232459/DW7933LRASR-00141A-02.pdf

Page 26 shows blinking Heavy light means there is leakage in the dishwasher. Most likely there is water in the base under the drain sump which could cause the flood switch to trip. Turn mains power to dishwasher off. Pull it out from under kitchen bench without breaking the hoses. Put some towels on the floor and turn dishwasher back and forth on incline to get water out. Wait a little and turn on. If no difference then you need to dry the base and find the source of the leak. More likely the door seal.

please make this test and fix it. Merry Christmas
Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle.

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace the timer/electronic control.

All my lights on the front of the dishwasher are blinking at me & stops running after 3 minutes into the cycle. What is the cause of this & of course, I am two months past my warranty. Help.


If three lights are blinking (normal, heavy, quick)... I just had this same problem, and I think I figured it out. There was water on the bottom from the last cycle, so I pressed HEAVY and DELICATE at the same time for 3 seconds (you'll see it printed on the control panel), and the unit drained. I was then able to start the new cycle normally without the error. Hope that helps!

Blinking lights, not washing


Usually blinking lights are indicating bad touch panel buttons. Remove kick plate, (black panel under door) and find service instructions there. It will tell you how to test button panel, as well as any codes flashing. Also will tell you hot to try a reset.

Asko d1876 dishwasher


The F2 lights blink due to a water senser in the compartment where the motors are located. Remove the bottom kick panel and other covers to access this area of the unit. Unplug the unit before working in this area as wires are abundant. Check the pan to see if water is present. Dry out the pan with a towel and then maybe a hairdryer to clear the F2 alarm. The real questions is what caused the water to be there. Start a cycle and watch to see if there are any leaks on the inlet water line. If not, let the unit run and see when water enters the pan. If it enters during the washing cycle, a gasket leak is likely. If it enters during the drain cycle, perhaps a drain hose is leaking.

Does not go thru dry cycle, clean light blinks 7 times


clean light blinking is a tricky problem to find and cure can be a few different issues.heres an edited down version of official manufacture explaination,its been an issue (I would call manu for assisstance in repairing this further)
A heater fault detection program has been added to the electronic control to check for temperature rise and shut down dish washer. If the temperature rise is less than the criteria, then the unit will drain and blink the clean light 7 times. The Proper incoming water temperature should be between 120°- 140° F.
Possible causes of insufficient temperature rise would include wires off at thecontrol, heating element, thermistor,inlet valve, door switch, motor or capacitor, failure of any of the above components or siphoning of the water during fill.
