SOURCE: dishwasher is filling up but

Sounds like the washer arm is not rotating around during the wash cycle.. Can you reach in and manually rotate the arm to make sure it is free to spin? Also, it may be washing but the drain filter has so much sediment in it from previous cycles that it is just redistributing that stuff on you dishes.. check the drain filter too... lastly, is the detergent dispenser opening after a wash cycle? If it is empty ( meaning it has been used) the other things mentioned above are probably the issue.. Hope that helps...

SOURCE: Dishwasher stuck on wash cycle and water does not heat up

The element that heats your water may be bad or the control panel(board) could be bad as well. If your machine is older than say 10 years old, it probably is the board. If you can, check the element by feeling to see if it is rusted through or has a rough feel to it in any particular area. The signal telling it to go into the rinse phase is an indication the the board is bad. Is it still under warranty?

Make certain that the water supply is connected to the hot water valve. You may have an issue with the heat element or thermostat (if applicable). Contact an appliance service company.

Start the wash programme

Electrolux dishwasher


Hello - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

My new omega washing mashine shows an E2 error code 5 miniutes into the wash how do I fix this?


Hello,

Manufactured by omega washing mashine have an electronic controlpanel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your washingcycle.
E2 indicates a water leak. When a leak occurs, it trips thefloat device by dumping water into the dishwasher's base. The incoming watervalve will be switched off, and the drain pump will turn on until the sump isempty
However, if an error light is blinking on your dishwasher'scontrol panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinkinglights on your washer control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needsto be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the controlpanel, contact Sears to service omega washing mashine or considertroubleshooting the appliance yourself carefully.Instructions
1 Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button onyour omega washing mashine for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher controlpanel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash,""Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after theother, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the washer to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the endof the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your omegawashing mashine. Thankfor using fixya.

The diswashing programme starts intermittently and does not go to the end of the washing programme and the washing is luke warm. I have checked and cleaned all filters and checked the water...


I suspect the pump or outlet hose is partially blocked, is it emptying in normal time with a normal outlet flow? (You can check that by watching the water come out if you can see the drain). Does the flashing light have a label on it, the lights on miele are generally labelled.
When you say it starts intermittently do you mean you have to start it more than once to be successful? That again would point to a pump or outlet hose blockage as it has to purge any water before starting.
Difficult to diagnose without more clues.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

My bosch excell dishwasher won't drain it stops during the wash and won't restart until I have emptied the water then it will wash ok until it gets to the drain part of the programme then it stops again....


A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.

Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.

Power point dishwasher - not washing dishes


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

I have a c1 error on an AEG oko favorite 50700 What dies this error mean


I don't understand why replies talk about the C2 and C3 errors... The problem is C1! I have the C1 error. I start a programme, it does the draining cycle to check empty then starts filling. MI can hear water entering but it sounds slow at a low flow rate. If I leave it going, eventually the programme stops and the error is displayed: C1 Opening and closing the door allows the programme to continue. I get the error after the various stages of the programme, when it is filling for the next wash or rinse. So it's 4 or 5 times I think during the programme. Now, if I help the filling... When the appliance is filling, I open the door, and poor in a kettle or two of water, then the error does not happen (the fill is within the time expected by the appliance?) So I am thinking one of two things is wrong: 1) I have a flow rate problem BEFORE the water connection to the appliance. E.g. It is blocked somehow. 2) There is something which opens/closes the "tap" within the machine which is causing the flow rate to be low and it does not fill quickly due to that. No idea which of these two, but I did disconnect the hose of the supply and check that water flows quickly from it into a bucket, so I am thinking there is something inside the machine which "opens the tap" and it's not doing a good job of it. Anyone got a clue?

Cycle will not start


sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.
