SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

Thank you! Our dishwasher hasn't been working for so long. I've tried spinning the fan to get it unstuck a long time ago but I thought that wasn't the problem. The fan was stuck real tight and i couldn't turn it more than a quarter turn each time. This time it worked!

-Turned off power to dishwasher on circuit breaker
-Removed kick panel
-Used two screw drivers, one to turn the fan till I couldn't any more and the other one to hold the blades in place so that it wouldnt "unwind". Then I would turn the fan some more. It turned less and less each but after repeating about 5 times the fan got un-stuck.
-Turned the power back on to the dishwasher and turned the dishwasher back on and IT WORKS!

THANK YOU!!

SOURCE: GE Nautilus dishwasher wont run

This is a typical GE problem which I have seen many times...When a DW sets for a while not being used...the motor often freezes up....Take the front (lower panel off....find the motor assembly...(with the DW unplugged!!...very important)reach in with you hand or a screw driver...preferably your hand...at the back of the motor...there should be a impeller blade...you should be able to reach in with a finger and pull it down..it may be resistant so find a way to hold it in place as you reach up to the next impller blade and pull down further...finally it will all of a sudden free up....after which you plug it back in and start it up...I am also including a step by step (no drain problem check list as you may run into an issue like this if it has not been operated for a while ....notice article # 5).


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

I hope this helps...it is always useful to include the Model #...more specific instructions can then be provided

Good Luck and good day.....please rate my effort...the Fang

SOURCE: "HO" flashes on display during washing.

The HO actually means the system is in a water heat delay. It means the water wasn't hot enough and the dishwasher is heating it up. Mine does it during the Hi-Temp wash.

SOURCE: Dishwasher will not shut off automatically

Hello, This sounds like a very common problem with Bosch dishwashers unfortunately, that is based on your description it likely has a faulty heater relay. The "1" is actually an error code identifying a heating fault. The issue with Bosch dishwasher`s most times lye`s within`the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this error code "1", but not very probable ). I`d first suggest calling in an authorized bosch servicer, however If you feel capable there`s a way to visually inspect the control. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes forever top finish ( because it can`t heat to advance or until canceled ) trying to heat the water. **Further to this, if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau, to service your machine.** Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution and leave a testimony. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Dishwasher took 3 hours to complete cycle


If you have set the unit to heated water or your hot water is not hot will delay the wash cycle. The heater in the dishwasher is very slow!
The following is from the user manual.
15
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Dishwasher is not operating properly
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the "Cycle Selection
Charts."
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown or circuit breaker tripped?
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.
Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?
Dishwasher will not fill
Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
Dishwasher seems to run too long
Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot enough? The
dishwasher runs longer while heating water. Refer to the
"Dishwasher Efficiency Tips" section.
A delay automatically occurs in some wash and rinse cycles
until the water reaches the proper temperatur

Hope this helps?

Blanco dishwasher


Dishwashers do not usually complete the cycle if the water temperature is not adequate for the wash program selected. This could be due to inlet hot water not at correct temperature if dishwasher uses hot water or the heater or thermostat within dishwasher being faulty and not able to heat the inlet cold water to the right temperature. Try to run the dishwasher with the rinse or quick wash (low temperature) setting and see if it completes. Might help if you post the Model number in the comments field.

No! Set the cycle you want first (A/B/C) THEN turn it on. It will just run through. I've just found my PDF instructions and trying to work out a way to upload them.

Blanco dishwasher error d06 faulty motor.


I have a Blanco BFD10X Dishwasher which had the same D06 error, being a Electrician i investigated the fault which Blanco report as motor over current. After testing the motor, i tested the motor Run capacitor and found it to be faulty, these capacitors are common to failure and will cause the pump to draw more current than usual.
A genuine replacement 2.5uf capacitor was quoted at $120.00, however i purchased a equivalent from RS online for $14.30 + delivery. RS P/N 769-4267
Dishwasher working fine again.

I need an owner manuel for Caloric Range Model # EST 345 I can'g figure out how to run the self cleaning oven cycle.


you might try the following, although it is the instructions for an old model, it may be relevant;

"The actual self-cleaning process is initiated by a simple 5 step procedure: 1. Set the range clock to time of day. Note: on models not equipped with an automatic oven timer, the self-cleaning cycle is preprogrammed for a 21/2 hour cycle. Use Steps 3, 4 and 5 only. 2.Establish the length of cleaning time by:
A. Setting the start time. Press and turn the start dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired starting time. B. Set the stop time. Press and turn the stop dial of the automatic oven timer clockwise to the desired stop time. Max time is 3 hours miniumum 1/12 hours. 3. Set the oven selector dial on the control panel to "Clean" 4. Set the temperature control dial to "off". If you temperature control dial has a "Clean" position, then set the dial to "Clean" instead of "Off". 5. Remove oven racks, broiler pan and broiler grid from lower oven. Close and lock the oven door by moving the latch lever as far right as it will go - into the locked position. If the lever is accidently dislodged restore it to the locked position. Otherwise, the self-cleaning process will not take place. Shortly after the cleaning cycle has begun, the oven temperatur reaches a degree in excess of the normal broiling temperature. The red "Clean" light will come on and the clean cycle will start. In a few minutes the door lock lever, which you have placed in the locked position, will automatically be secured to prevent the oven door from beging opened during the cleaning cycle. This latch remains locked until the clean cycle is complete and the oven temperature reduces to normal baking and broiling temperaturs. NOTE: Prior to self cleaning cycle operation, the oven and surface lights must be turned offed. The upper oven can be used."

Yes, you are right. To make out what is wrong place a plain cloth under the foot and try these 3 ABC positions as well as other positions and see what type of stitch you get in each position.
I don't claim this to be a solution to the problem. But it should help you solve it.

Blanco dishwasher overflows at end of cycle


There is a float connected to a switch that controls water level. It is usually round and will move freely up and down by hand. But your problem might be a levelling related one. The dishwasher must be level to operate correctly. Use a torpedo level in the tank base to check front to back level and side to side level. Adjust the front legs to level the unit.

Dishwasher won't turn on


I have a DDW1802W with a Stainless Steel interior (which is different from the standard model I am finding). I just purchased it, and it worked a couple times, but then wouldn't start the cycle. It would just make noise (both the clicking of the switch dial, and a moaning noise. It has a small container under the insulation on the right side towards the front (you will need to pull it our of your counter) that has a styrofoam float in it that hits a switch when it gets full (signaling a overflow). There is a small black rubber plug on the bottom side of the container. I pulled that and drained the water out of it, stuffed it back in, and it is running right now.

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.
