Celsius deshwasher CDW12. Dial gets jammed on water inlet settings?

I have a celsius dishwasher model CDW12. I think it is getting stuck on settings. When its got water flowing, it seems to be running for like 10 minutes in the same spot. We thought that the dishwasher was faulty like 2 years ago and havnt used it. But we decided to give it a go. So im unsure how long that part of the cycle goes for. We have been clicking it to the next setting to allow it to finish its cycle, because we think its running for too long... "Is it suppose to run in same position for some time or could the switch be faulty???"

    I have the same problem. I have had the dishwasher for about 5 years and have not had a problem until now. It gets stuck in 2 spots.

    Same problem, purchased new Timer/Controller and installed. Did not fix problem. Further investigation found break in heater element. Assume temp could not be reached so dial would not advance. Gave up in disgust and purchased new LG. Hope this helps.

    PS. I have a new timer for sale if you need one.

    Same problem as well. Timer never advances and water in the dishwasher is cold, so I'd have to agree with the theory that the heater element has died.

    I'm trying to find a new element, but being a rather obscure cheapy brand I'm not holding much hope.

The Celcius dishwasher is owned by GAF. Their phone number in Australia is 1300 659 489. You could try them. Hope it works.

Have the same problem and a serviceman has identified that some of the gearing on the Selector Switch is damaged. Easy enough to replace it if only I can find a source of spare parts. Does anyone know?

Water too hot

Hot water is most often 10 degrees colder when it arrives at your machine from when it leaves your hot water heater. In general hot water is 130 degrees Fahrenheit (54.4 Celsius) or above. Warm water is between 110 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit ( 43.3-32.2 Celsius). Cold water is generally between 80 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7-15 Celsius). If cold water is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (15 Celsius), clothes are unlikely to be cleaned very well.

What is the coldest setting that it can be set to?

Usually about 30-35 degrees celsius. I can't be exact as you didn't specify the brand or model of your dishwasher. If you post back with the information, I can give you the exact temperature for your model.

I am trying to return the freezer and refrugerator settings to 37 and 0 , how do I do that?

There is a dial or button pad inside the fridge that controls the temperature up or down.
some displays are not so clear so just adjust your fridge slowly either way until you get to the desired temperature

37 degree Fahrenheit = 2.78 degree Celsius
0 degree Celsius = 32 degree Fahrenheit

Whirlpool 6 sense model WSC5513- A+ X side by side, without ice or water dispenser. Refrigerator part not cooling properly. Temperature setting is -18 degrees Celsius for the freezer and 2 degrees...

The temp for the fridge is about right and -18 for the freezer is ok so check to see if the water filter is plugged, at 8 degrees Celsius is about 18 degrees fht. Which is freezing so the numbers don't add up. 26 degrees below zero on the freezer side is what you want if it that cold it could have frozen the water line.

No operating INSRUCTIONS

I don't have the manual but I can make a few suggestions. First, if you have left scraps on the plates, they won't come clean. Second, if the water is not hot enough, you will have problems with your detergent. Three, use the amount of detergent the bowl holds. Fourth, never jam in more to the unit than it should easily the utensil racks, for example. Fifth, always make it easy for what you've put in to drain thoroughly so the drying cycle works.
