Diswasher won't run

I started the diswasher and it appeared to be running, however, I opened the door to add another dish; now it won't run, won't add water. I checked the circuit breaker and tried opening and closing the door again. I turned the knob so it would go through all the cycles; won't run. Any ideas?

    The rinse water does not drain and will not turn back on after closing the door. I checked the breaker, but that is not the problem. The lights come on the front panel but nothing happens.

    Run a cycle when leaving for a few days then when return Door won't open. Only way to open is too run cycle again then it opens.

First check the circuit breaker box you might hva tripped abreaker, next close the door softly, and listen to perhaps hear the door switch activating, id the door doesnt close (bad switch) no power to rest of d/w

The dishwasher runs through it's cycle but does not clean the dishes properly and leaves a cloudy film and smears on the inside of the machine and the dishes


    Common Problem
  1. Confirm the wash water is hot
    1. Try heated wash(sani wash) if available
    2. Run hot water in sink to warm up before starting
    3. At least 120 degree Fahrenheit water temperature
  2. Open door check wash arm position start washer for a minute
    1. Confirm wash arm has rotated
    2. Check for plugged spray tips at either end of wash arm.
    3. Use small tweezers to remove
    4. Check for rack and dishes interfering with arm rotation
  3. Place cup in upper rack with opening up cycle washer.
    1. Confirm that cup quickly fills with water
    2. Not washing check water level in tub mim 1 1/2 inch
  4. Discontinue use of rinse/dry liquid additive.
    1. Confirm rinse/dry additive not leaking from dispenser into tub
    2. Washer detergent contains sparkle additive and too much sparkle/rinses/dry additive will coat dishes
    3. Try alternative wash detergent that contains minimal rinse/dry additive and use without liquid rinse/dry additive.
  5. It will take several wash cycles after the elimination of rinse/dry to purge the oily film from dishes and machine..
  6. If success "joy" is achieved with no additives then cautiously add back wash detergent with additives. Additives are important to facilitate drying and protecting the glassware china from leaching. The leaching process permanently etches the surface of glassware leaving a cloudy appearance.

I have an Electrolux ESL6115 dishwasher model and although there is water coming out and the spray blades seem to be turning the dishes are always wet after the cycle has finished and there appears to be...


Its possible that if you live in a hard water area that limescale buildup is causing this problem if salt levels got low. The first thing that can be done is to run it with 2 or 3 cups of vinegar added & see if it cures it. If it won't accept opening the door to add this after wash has started then add it in a wide dish to catch water & wash it out during cycle. Adding a dose (half cup) of bicarbonate of soda alongside should work even better. This has worked really well for washing machine about to give up on & do regularly to prevent problem. Hope this helps.

Why won't my GE dishwasher get my dishes clean?


IF all appears to be working just leacing film on dishes or if not actually cleaning dishes there could be several things it could be... the basics to start with are first make sure the entering water temperature to dishwasher is a t least 120-140 degrees ... run water at sink prior to starting dishwasher.. next remove drain line from under sink and check for any obstruction where it connects. check the area under lower spray arm for trash/food build up and if you can remove spray arm and clean port out of any calcium build up... make sure the water is filling unit properly run a cycle and when you start unit listen when it stops filling open door and make sure it has enough water in it.

Electrolux dishwasher error code 01


I found the error codes in the owners manual, (01) is a leak. I called customer service (no wait time) and they said there is pan under the tub that will contain and detect water if it leaks. They said I could wait for it to dry out. They said there could be a hose that became loose or had a pin hole in it. After I hung up with customer service I did my own problem solving. The diswasher washing cycle was just started. Then then the door was opened 5 to 6 times to add more utensils and dishes while the the machine was running. Then the error code came on. this was the first time this had happened. I beleive water seeped doen through the hinges and the seal into the pan. I unpluged the dishwasher and disconnected the water line and pulled it from under the counter. Then lifted the diswasher onto 4 inch blocks of wood placed under the feet. This made it easier to access the pan. It had 2 screws inthe front and 1 in the rear with 3 clips. I removed the pan and dried it. Inspected the hoses under the unit and determined none of them had appeared to be leaking. I positioned a fan to blow under the unit to speed up the dry time, about 1/2 an hour. Put everything back together and ran a high pressure hot water cycle and found no leakes, so far.

Dishes are not getting clean, detergent just runs down the door used tablets they worked until lately. The door would open but the tablet would not disolve. Now I use liquid but it just runs down the door...


Quickest way to ruin a good dishwasher is to use tablets. They have times when they don't brake down in the water like they were designed. Chance are that you used the tablets with the thin film package, this thin film gets caught in the pump and shut down water circulation. Have a qualified tech pull motor assembly apart for you and clean.

The wash cycle runs and runs.


Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.

The whole process uses about 2 gallons of water.

Bosch SHU3302 diswasher - lack of water pressure


if you have water in the machine but it isn't pushing it or agitating the water you have a bad motor,if you think the valve is bad open the door and add water into the machine by hand with a bowl or glass,if it starts to agitate better then the valve isn't letting enough water in,the best way to check if it's spraying is pull out the top rack put a glass right side up in each corner of upper rack,if the glasses have a good amount of water in them after running for like 30 seconds then it sounds like it's working correctly,i don't know what you mean by water pressure,when it stops filling after like 2 minutes open the door,if the water level looks low or lower than normal then i would say you have a bad water valve,if water looks normal but not spraying or agitating the water you could have a bad motor or something is clogged stopping the water from spraying,but like i said when it starts to run and it sounds like the water isn't agitating as hard as normal add a few glasses of water and start it,if it sounds stronger then i would say the valve is bad not letting enough water in.

Diswasher detergent door


lizzie1 First thing check if the lower dish rack is in right position. If it is in wrong position it is not enough room for the lid to pop up open. Try to turn the dish rack around and see if it works. If not, then I'll need the full model number for your dish easher. Gendos...post back
