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.

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Normal wash light blinking, d/w wont start


Wish I could solve this, as I'm having the same problem too. Normal light blinks not matter which wash button is pressed. Cancel light will light, but still NOTHING happens. Same model as yours.

Blinking lights, not washing


Usually blinking lights are indicating bad touch panel buttons. Remove kick plate, (black panel under door) and find service instructions there. It will tell you how to test button panel, as well as any codes flashing. Also will tell you hot to try a reset.

hi friend,
step 1
Remove any large food deposits from the dishes to prevent damaging the dishwasher.
  • Step 2 Load the upper rack of the dishwasher with smaller items, such as glasses, cups and cookware lids. The items must be inserted face down, with the soiled side of each item facing toward the bottom of the dishwasher. Some dishwasher models feature clips, which can be used to secure lightweight items to the tines of the upper rack. The clips work like clothesline pins, and can be moved from one tine to another.
  • Step 3 Load the lower rack of the dishwasher with heavier items, such as plates, bowls and pans. Insert the items between the tines of the rack with the soiled side of each item facing toward the center of the dishwasher.
  • Step 4 Load the silverware basket. The silverware should be inserted into the basket with some items facing up and some facing down to ensure the items do not fit together, which would prevent the dishwasher from being able to clean all surfaces. Knives should be inserted blade down, so they can be inserted and removed from the dishwasher with the handle to avoid injury.
  • Step 5 Add detergent to the dishwasher, and then close the dishwasher's door. Note that the dishwasher has two detergent sections. One dispenser, called the main wash section, has a lid. Open the main wash section's lid by pressing down on the cover latch located next to the section. Fill the main wash section with 3 tbsp. of automatic dishwasher powdered detergent, then close the lid until it snaps into place. The other detergent section is the prewash section. It does not have a lid, because the detergent within the section empties into the dishwasher when the door is closed. Fill the prewash section with 2 tbsp. of automatic dishwasher powdered detergent. Close the dishwasher's door until it clicks into place.
  • Step 6 Prime the dishwasher by turning the kitchen sink's faucet on until it produces hot water. This will ensure the dishwasher has an immediate supply of hot water.
  • Step 7 Start the dishwasher by choosing and pressing the appropriate wash-cycle button, located on the front of the dishwasher's door. Cycle selections include "POTS --N- PANS," "HEAVY" for heavily soiled items, "NORMAL" for standard washing, "CRYSTAL/CHINA" for delicate items, "LOW ENERGY" for lightly soiled items and "RINSE ONLY" for items that will not be washed immediately.

    Dishes still dirty after heavy wash cycle


    There is a screen on the drain area of the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned. It has a plastic mesh screen on it - you can't miss it. Second get an old toothbrush and clean out the little jets on the washing arms that spin around. You will notice these holes are clogged up with calcium deposits etc. Those things done you will have a new dishwasher again. You need to do this every 6 months or so. Also use a rinse conditioner for a while to assure the jets are clean. Good Luck

    Dishwasher lights blinking


    QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
