Our 2400 is starting by itself. It works fine when we run it but when it is just sitting there, it starts up. We have to leave the door open or it will run a full cycle. Even with the door open, the lights stay on and flash and blink like it is trying to start up. We have thrown the circuit to try and reset it but that didn't do any good. The delay cycle isn't activated. Any idea why this would happen and what we can do to fix it? Thanks!

The timer works like a clock if you like. The cycle starts at 12:00 finishes around 11:55. When you open the door, the timer advances to the 12:00 position resetting itself to the start of a new cycle. The door has to be open for about 12 seconds. Check on the left side door hinge bracket and see how it plays on the door switch. old doors on the SR24's had an issue of the hinge screw coming loose which triggered the switch too soon. You should be able to rest the door against the tank without the maching running. The switch should close as the door engages the latch.
Your screens are plugged with food residue in the bottom of the unit. clean it out. You can use 1 gallon of white vinegar for your wash after you clean the screens. Start your washer to fill with water but after the water starts, open your door and pore all of the gallon in the unit. Let it now run for 4 minutes and stop it by opening the door. Leave the door slightly open for 1 hour. close the door and let the cycle continue for 4 more minutes. open the door and repeat it a couple of more times. Let it sit all night with the vinegar in it and in the morning - close the door and let the cycle continue to the end. This should help soften and clean out the food particles in the unit. You can repeat the process and get a better cleaning then too. All the scale should be off your dishes now.
Seems to be a faulty door latch...it wants to start but the computer thinks the door is still open and wont allowing it to continue, thus turning off. Try playing with the door latch before opening it up and looking within the latch.
If the dishwasher was working fine before you opened it to move something, and now it does absolutely nothing, then I would suppose it is a door switch issue. The door switch is located at the top middle of control panel, and is there are a safety device to keep dishwasher from running with door opened. You need to play around with closing the door and pushing the top in various ways to see if you can get it started. However it is more than likely a faulty switch.
This is caused by a water leak into the base pan,it will trigger the anti flood and the machine will continously drain out even with the door open,you need to establish what is leaking,if you leave the appliance standing for a few days it will start again as the water will evaporate however if the fault returns you will definetly have aleak on the appliance which will require further investigation.
If your 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. 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. 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.) Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection Charts.” Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse blown, or has a 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 shutoff valve (if installed) turned on? It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several seconds during the main wash. If the dishwasher will not fill Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down freely? Press down to release. Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?
ok start the washer after it fills and starts washing open the door again and turn the dial to drain shut the door see if it drains if it does then open the door and turn it to heated dry shut the door and get you a small glass of warm water let it sit in heated dry for about 3 minutes open the door and pour the water on the heating element and let me know if it sizzles
The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.
