Re: water left in machine

Ginger...the first thing I'd look at is if there is any water under the machine which could be shorting this unit out. Shut the power, remove the lower housing and look around. You may also see a cable that has vibrated its insulation away somewhere in there. If that isn't found, you may have a bad motor. That's going to be a service guy job.

Why does my Fisher and Paykel DD605SS stall part way through wash cycle?

I'm not sure of this, because the manual does not have an error with a E. I can fine error F4. It says it encountered a faulty temperature sensor or element. If the heating element burned through the night you circuit breaker tripped (Sure it was not the ground fault circuit breaker?), then the dish washer can't heat the water, so the program can't continue. The program stops (waits) till the chosen temp is reached. If the water stays cold the program can't go on.
So also check the heater in the machine. I hope you are aware everything in the machine runs on high (or at least dangerous) voltages, so be careful not to work in the machine when it is still connected.

How to reset a Whirpool dishwasher.

You have to press a series of button in sequence, the sequence is completed pressing the Hi-Temp wash, air dry, Hi-temp wash and air dry again in succession.

On some model it can be Sani Rinse wash, air dry, Sani Rinse and air dry again in succession.

If that does not work, then try tripping the circuit breaker for two minutes, emptying water that can be eventually inside the tub, connecting back, and doing the reset sequence again.

LG Dishwasher LD-1420T1 Tripping the main Power Board

Looks like the pump motor is drawing lot of current and tripping the circuit breaker. Need to check if there is any water inside it. Or simply the capacitor is leaky and causes motor to draw current.

See this part.

As soon as we close down the lid the circuit breaker trips off ! our model is the 505048 passthrough dishwasher ck 0777

There is a short circuit in the electric system in the dishwasher. As soon as you shut the hood, the circuit is completed and causes the breaker to trip.

You will need a technician to find the leaky part. Most likely the water is leaking into the motor / pump area causing a short circuit.

Best to disconnect from the mains and check for leaky gaskets. I believe this uses a 3 phase 400V which can be converted to single phase. So also make sure there is no unbalance in the mains power phases if you are using 3 phase supply.

Dishwasher showwing LE error message

Hi Tanja

LE is motor error.

Empty water from inside the machine and try tripping the circuit breaker for a couple of minutes.

If that does no clear the error , then one of the following faults may have ocurred:

Wiring connection broken either bad connector on pump side or on timer control side, or faulty wiring harness.
The hose connected to impeller, or the impeller itself is blocked.
Motor or pump locked.
Faulty timer board.

My smeg dwf 64 sse blew the main fuse yesterday. The machine was up to its rise stage on program 8 then the breaker went. Every time I switch the main back on it blew. I have managed to stop it...

Your element was initially short circuit, which caused circuit breaker trip. It is now open circuit and timer will not advance because water has not reched required temperature, recommend thermostat replacement also.

Whirlpool dishwasher du945PWPQ0 won't run, no led lights

If you have used a meter to check that the power circuit is live clear to the connection under the dishwasher then:
It is ~possible~ that (even though it is hard wired) a tripped GFI outlet in the kitchen has tripped and opened the circuit that this diswasher is connected to. Locate all GFI outlets in the house and reset them.
Seperate from that, you have a failed diswasher on your hands. If you have an extended waranty, well done. Otherwise, you need to decide between repair and replacement.

No power, water in machine

Depending on how your DW is wired.. it could be plugged into a receptacle like any other appliance or hard wired directly from your circuit breaker box.. I would check to see if you have any circuit breakers tripped or fuses blown... to verify that you have power.. assuming you do... and because you had water in the base .. chances are your drain filter was clogged that leads water to the pump.. or the pump itself is clogged or defective.. Try power cycling the system by either unplugging it or switching off the breaker or fuse feeding it power.. Hope that helps

Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker

Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect. back.
