Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

My cda dishwasher cw448 is 18 months old, and has recently begun to stop before the end of the cycle. When I open the machine, 3 lights flash, (one of them the rinse button), and the machine bleeps repeatedly. Why doesn't the cycle complete? I've checked the filters, the spray arms, all the dispensers, and manual doesn't give any answer. This doesn't happen all the time, but is occuring more often now.

SOURCE: Dishwasher Repair

It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if motor spins. In case it spins, the problem is with the pump ,in case it doesn't spin it could be a motor problem or a motor and pump problem. Good luck

check your water intake- i had the same issue - a leaky fitting wasn't supplying enough water to the dishwasher. had exactly the same symptoms you describe. fixed the leak, reset the dishwasher & it's working fine.

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle

I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.

SOURCE: Equator PLS600 spray arm will not move.

Problem solved. Removed spray arm assy including nut (attached to body). Manually moved propeller inside water inlet. This freed it up enough to get her working again. Apparent cause was enough debris in chamber to cause it to seize. Note that this fix was preceded by the famous WikiFix of filling chamber with baking soda then topping it off with white vinegar, left overnight. Also note that the above manual movement of the propeller was done with the machine on (not recommended) at the point in the cycle where the spray arm should have been operating.

Zanussi zdt 6053 usually will not run full cycle (on any cycle) but stops with constant error beeps. But it is draining ok and sometimes goes full cycle (not often) Any ideas?


Could be anything!
If you suspect that there is a fault then it will be displayed by blinking LED "END OF CYCLE". As the display of failure in hexadecimal code it can flash up to max. 15 times than short pause and after that repeat fault code. You must to count the number of times the LED "END OF CYCLE" flash up.

Example from user manual: Anti-flood device is activated.
- continuous flashing of the indicator light of the running programme
- 3 intermittent audible signals
- 3 flashes of the END OF CYCLE indicator light
(which means "i30" fault code, the cycle is interrupted and the
drain pump switches on).
Possible causes:
Water leakage from the tub - sump and various connections
(pump, upper spray arm duct etc.); floating sensor blocked
mechanically; microswitch faulty; fill solenoid blocked
mechanically; circuit board faulty (solenoid triac short-circuited);
wiring faulty.
26226179-aipk5px1bmfkdpsmrgevaqwn-3-1.jpg Could be also:
To cancel a washing programme in progress:
- Open the dishwasher's door.
- Press the programme selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds,
until the indicator light of the running programme turns off and the
END OF CYCLE indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode. It is now possible to select another
washing programme. If a new washing programme will be
selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.

NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher's door will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds, the running programme will be automatically cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode. This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.

I have recently changed my dishwasher over from a direct hot water pipe into the dish washer, to a cold water pipe but the temperature lights keep flashing and then the cycle, which has barely begun,...


A dishwasher requires a hot water line to operate properly. The dishwasher is indicating the water is too cold to even begin a cycle.

I have a cda mx194 dishwasher 1st three lights are flashing and it is beeping it wont start the cycle


MX194 Dishwasher.

Switch off and unplug before doing anything. .

First three lights are flashing on top and it will not stop making stupid noises.

Remove plastic panels at front of machine under door, see if there is water inside.

If there is ... something is leaking. If it is a slow leak - solution is to dry up excess water in tray with paper towels or whatever comes to hand. You will need to find the leak somehow - salt container is usual suspect.

There is a microswitch attached to a float on the left hand side inside a white plastic cover. Water at the base of this activates the switch and disables machine. Mine has not leaked since trying this fix and machine is running well 2 months down the line. Better 10 minutes with paper towels than 2 hours of expensive plumbers.

Asko 1585 Dishwasher


do they flash lik all on one side then the other? Start a cycle, then open the door. Do the lights flash the same way when you open the door as when it stops? if soyou may have a door that needs to be adjusted so it closes better. when the cycle ends, is there any standing water in the bottom? if so you may have a poorly routed drain hose or a partial clog in it. Last, pull the bottom panels off and look inside the bottom of the dishwasher and see if there is standing water down there . If ther is you have aleak somewhere or a bad drain pump. You r only other choice is a bad pressure switch. If youve already adjusted the water fil to the proper level ( just up to the grey plastic housing that the lower wash arm sits on) tehre really aernt any more options. Hope this helps!
