Question about Dishwashers
I have a diplomat intergrated dishwasher, if I select a programme and clos eth door the cycle startes, I hear the drain pump kick in and I can hear the unit draining, this goed on for about 2 minutes then the unit starts to beep at me, if I open it the start light if flashin, the pre wash light is on and there is the error code FA in the LED dispplay, I do not have any codes in the manual and the internet does not seem to have the manual any where either.... I also have a diplomat intergrated dishwasher, if I select a programme and close the door the cycle startes, I hear the drain pump kick in and I can hear the unit draining, this goed on for about 2 minutes then the unit starts to beep at me, if I open it the start light if flashin, the pre wash light is on and there is the error code FA in the LED dispplay. Please,please,please help:(
FA is a problem with the tubidity sensor. By holding down the power button, it stops, but just repeats everytime you try a new wash cycle. So keep doing it and you can atleast use it. If you want to go one step further and find a permanent solution try feeling around in the sump (where the filter slots in) being careful for any broken glass. Other than that it will probably be a strip-down job to examine the internal hoses and the pump; not a DIY job to be honest.

It is possible that the
machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from
the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must
initiate the INLET/PUMP MOTOR/DRAIN to work
when it is commanded .If this does not happen then the voltage at these
points must be checked or the fault
relates to no voltage/drive from the controller. This means the controller is a

water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there
is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What
is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch
must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the
motor. The water pressure must be good and the spraying must be seen to be
good. If there is low pumping or pressure then the spray arms will not turn
around to inject with pressure. If so
the pump must be checked for clogging.

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water.
