It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.

SOURCE: Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open

 
Ok, this is the fix:


No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


Why?


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Question.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.


Good Luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold

SOURCE: Frigidaire PLD4460REC Dishwasher will not start

This is very likely due to a bad main electronic control board but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.

My double drawer kitchenaid dishwasher sold red light and beeping during cycle wont turn off and runs even with door open, turned breaker off


If you using upper or lower drawer and this shows up it means the dishwasher has water under the filter board which located on the bottom under the lower drawer. You have to disconnected power,removed the lower drawer, clean the water, replaced filter board, check the dishwasher for leaking.

Stopped in mid cycle and wont restart


Hi....I think I can help you with this. I checked a troubleshooting site for Crosley dishwashers, and there could be a couple of reasons why the cycle stopped:
1. The thermal fuse shuts off power to the dishwasher if it overheats. If the thermal fuse blows, it will prevent the dishwasher from starting. To determine if the thermal fuse is defective, use a multimeter to test the fuse for continuity. If the thermal fuse does not have continuity, replace it.
2. The door switch prevents the dishwasher from running while the door is open. If the door switch is defective, the switch will prevent the dishwasher from running even when the door is closed. To determine if the door switch is at fault, use a multimeter to test the switch for continuity. If the switch does not have continuity, replace it.
3. The door latch ensures that the dishwasher door latches shut. If the door does not latch properly, the door switch might prevent the dishwasher from running. If the door latch is broken, replace it.

You'll need the model number for your particular dishwasher.
I hope this has helped you.

The orange on/off button lights up. however the start/pause button does not.


It's hard to tell by the way you've phrased the question whether or not the button is doing what it is supposed to do, or if it is just the light indicator that is not working. So, I will answer both scenarios. // Press start button fully until you hear machine start; (usually less than one full second). In other words, hold button in until ''start'' is _heard_. After start has begun, holding button for 3 full seconds will ''pause'' the cycle. After ''pause'' pressing button again (just like first time) will restart cycle (i.e. ''take it off pause''). But while ''paused'' holding the button in again for any longer than a fraction of a second will cancel the wash. // TO CLARIFY: Press button for approx 1 second to start wash. After start has begun, pressing button for 3 seconds will ''pause'' wash. While ''paused'' pressing button again for less than a second (i.e. ''quick press of button'') will ''resume'' wash. Also, while ''paused'', pressing button for longer than a second (usually 3 seconds) will cancel the wash. // If the machine is (otherwise) working correctly, and your complaint is a light not lighting, then it is just a bad LED light. Best bet is leave it alone. Or, you could buy a new switch if the LED is _inside_ the switch. If the LED is on the control panel, then do yourself and big favor and don't mess with it.

When push start button goes right to no spin and turns off


As for unplugging it, I had an issue with mine not spinning on the Perm Press cycle. I tried unplugging it for an hour and plugging it in again to no avail. Just gave up on the Perm Press cycle. A few months later I unplugged it for a week while I was on vacation and low and behold, it started to spin on the Perm Press cycle! I'm not sure how long it would have needed to be unplugged, but you may want to try for a couple of days. But, in the mean time....

Try running the diagnosis and looking for an error code.
To recall an error code,
• Wake the machine by pressing any button
• Wait 5 seconds
• Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously
• All LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed. A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

I have a Fisher Paykel 605 double DD. I have an F2 error message. There was a frozen rotor, likely from disuse over the winter. I replaced the rotor and it still stops and shows the F2 display. There


Not sure if you have fixed the F2 problem yet. The rotor cavity may look clean but sometimes there is a piece of bone or seed stuck inside the channel connecting rotor cavity with pump sump. Take the rotor out and the drain filter out. Take a rigid thin wire and run it inside the channel connecting the two.

Also get some white vinegar and with a tooth brush rub it inside the rotor cavity to ensure all dirt is removed. The rotor speed sensing is done by the hall sensor sitting underneath the cavity. It is not visible from top. The sensor could be reading incorrectly. IF still no luck then Run in diagnostic mode - (but make sure you do not try any other function than what is mentioned here otherwise you could damage dishwasher).


DishDrawer Diagnostics can
only be entered in Power Off mode, ie. When there is no display on the LCD or the
badge LED's are off. Diagnostics is entered by holding the
Keylock and Start/Pause buttons simultaneously for 5
seconds. Ensure that
Keylock is pushed first.
All LED's and LCD segments (except keylock) are illuminated. Press Power button and display shows HO in red background. Press Start/ Pause. You are now in hardware diagnostic mode. Open drawer so that you can see inside. Press Start/ Pause a few times until FU shows on display. At this point press Keylock and water should flow in. Press Keylock to turn inlet valve off after water is collected under the wash arm (don't cover wash arm). Press Start/ Pause again and P1 will display. Press Keylock to turn rotor motor on and water will swish around. Press Keylock to turn motor off within a few seconds otherwise flooding could occur. Next press Start/ Pause once so P2 displays. Press Keylock to run rotor again but this time it will pump out. Let it run until the water is pumped out. Press Keylock to stop pump. This should test the rotor in both forward and reverse direction.
PRESS POWER BUTTON ANYTIME TO EXIT DIAGNOSTIC

If the hardware test worked ok then turn mains power to dishwasher off and on and start normal wash cycle. If there is still an F2 problem then hall sensor is faulty and needs replacement. Not easy to do and best left to technicians. By the way each dishdrawer has separate controller - so one drawer could be working fine and the other not.

Ldf6920st LG dishwasher. Pump runs continuously.


Continuous run of DW "drain pump" is common problem, with simple solution, and without "pulling" the DW!

Because the problem is likely a "stuck float riser assembly", a mechanical "glitch", from crud build up, I recommend trying one "might get lucky fix" first.

Look up above the door and remove (usually two) screws holding two metal "tabs" to bottom of wood counter. This should allow you to "rock" the unit a little. This might allow the float assembly to operate.

A. You have removed and cleaned the screens to the pump inlet and have manually added hot water which the pump removes but the pump just continues to run, even when you open the door? You should still be able to use controls to shut unit off. If not, you should be able to turn DW off at circuit breaker panel. Find and open the breaker any how, because "I'm sending you in!"

There are two sheet metal "plates" about 4 inches high, 24 inches wide below the door on Bosch (and others) dish washers. Remove both, usually they can just be carefully removed.

Lay with face on floor and use flashlight to look "up and into" the left bottom side of the DW. About a foot into the bottom left side of the unit look for a red or orange (usually) plastic rod about the size of a pencil rising vertically out of a thin plastic "tank". This is a "sump" of some sort (???) and the bottom of the rod is a "float". The top of the "pencil" activates a micro switch. Junk in "tank" or on micro switch stops rise of the rod which keeps pump running.

Carefully, manually lift the orange rod with a long wooden spoon. Several times. You should hear the micro switch click. Don't be sticking screwdrivers or anything metal in there. Even with the power off.

Turn breaker back on. This may solve most common problem in first five years for many brands of dish washers.

Good luck.
