    Thanks for that answer. I actually went else where and found that if you tip the dishwasher backwards and allow water to drain out,and then stand upright turn it on it works, apparently the flooding alert monitor is the problem and goes haywire for a time.

Not shutting off


You don't indicate the model, but if it has a dial type timer and the unit is getting old, the dial timer motors have a tendency to weaken over time to the point where they just don't have the energy necessary to finish turning the timer any longer. The only fix at that point is either a new timer assembly (not cheap) or, and more preferably, a whole new dishwasher.

I replaced an old Malibu 300 watt powerpack with a new digital 300 watt Malibu power pack and when I turn it on it runs for about a miniut and then shuts down. I have 15 11watt light on it, the same as the...


300 watt power pack should have 300 watt load.
You have 165 watt load.
Copy following link for general tips to get Malibu power pack to last longer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Malibu-power-pack-stopped-working.html

Problem might be the photo eye.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Malibu-8100-9045-01-large.jpg
Rotate manual dial to ON position and see if lights turn ON.
Keep in mind the digital power pack has photoeye that is light sensitive, and must be exposed to dark light to activate.
For timed functions. Rotate manual dial until it points at timer. Press clock set function button, and use up-down buttons to set current time. Press timer ON button, and then use up-down to set ON timer. Then press timer OFF button , and use arrow keys to set OFF time.

This product has 1 year limited warranty, contrast with old-type analog power pack with 5-year warranty.
Malibu does not even post a manual on their site, which might have troubleshoot section to illuminate why your system has problem,

Dishwasher problem


Hello ramsey06,
Welcome,
You said , dishwasher starts everything is going OK. the water is going but then it stops and does not finish.

First: this is what Whirlpool says!!

And after this Is what the repair manual says when I looked it up for you!


Dishwasher is not operating properly
1.Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
2.Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
3.Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
4.Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
5.Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
6.Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
7.Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.
___________________________________________________________

BUT, the repair manual says this


Faulty Pump and Motor Assembly Some models that will not wash or drain often have a faulty Pump and Motor Assembly. If the motor is receiving power from the timer and it is not operating that is the case.
Temporary Work-around:
With the power turned off to the unit, sometimes it is possible to manually rotate the cooling fan on the motor assembly. In certain situations where the dishwasher has set idle for a period of time, this may free the bearings enough that the unit will begin to operate. Where this works as a short term solution in some cases, it is often a sign of things to come. The frequency of the motor seizing will increase until it will simply no longer work.

I think this is a hands job that needs service and hands on attention!
I hope it's not the motor or pump!

How old is the machine?
If they tell you it is an expensive motor then you need to know this!!!!

Here is an article I just read!

If the dishwasher is old it will not pay you to repair the

Here is an interesting report I just read!!!!!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old dishwasher

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that dishwashers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of dishwashers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

I have a technika diswasher,not sure of the model, is approx 3 years old and has a big dial on the left hand side with 7 wash functuions and the power button is smaller and is on the RHS. I cant remember...


I have the same model. You just turn the dial to the setting you want, push the dial back in, turn the (right) power button on then turn the smaller start button on. I use different cycles all of the time depending on whats in the load and this works fine for me.
