Our machine is frozen not responding to panel buttons

You can try resetting your dishwasher.

1. First, unplug the dishwasher power cord or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
2. Then, plug the dishwasher power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
3. After that, press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
4. Finally, start a short cycle, to check operation of the dishwasher, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the dishwasher starts.

Why bosch dishwasher will not turn on?

Suggestions: First, make sure it's plugged in.
Assuming it won't turn on when plugged in, First plug something else into it's plug or test it with a plug tester. The plug itself may be off or broken. Assuming the plug is OK, the next thing is to make sure it is unplugged and look for a fuse in the dishwasher. It should be located near where the plug goes in. You may need to remove a panel. Note that some dishwasher also wont turn on unless you have water hooked up.

How do you remove the bottom spray arm?


Unplug the dishwasher. If you cannot access the plug, turn off the dishwasher's circuit breaker in the electrical circuit breaker box to stop electrical power to the dishwasher.

Open the dishwasher's door, and pull out the bottom dish rack. Set it aside.

Hold the lower spray arm still with one hand. Turn the retaining nut clockwise with the other hand until it comes free. Pull the spray arm up and off the shaft.

Dishwasher ran for an hour and was still on Start. I moved it ahead and it began to smell like something was burning. I turned it off. Should I call a repairman or just get a new one?

You can also try unplugging the unit. Then press the power button after unplugged for an hour. Then plug back in and see if machine resets itself.

Occasionally, dishwashers can run for hours, not finish washing

My dishwasher's "clean" light is flashing and when I try to hit the start key nothing happens. Have tried to open/close to restart and also tried to hit the cancel key.

Some dishwashers are unplugged under the sink. Unplug it for a few minutes and plug it back in to see if it will reset. Others are wired in behind or under the unit. Go to your fuse box and turn off that kitchen fuse. Then wait and turn it back on. Just an idea.

PF signal comes on, and dishwasher stops running

PF = Power Failure, did you make sure outlet is ok and not a loose plug? Any short in outlet will do that, OR a loose wire at the motor to the dishwasher. UNPLUG unit and look under it for a gray box that the plug leads from. One or 2 screws will remove that box and verify all wires are connected properly.. MAKE sure unit is UNPLUGGED

My dishwasher computer is not resetting. It apprears to be stuck in a cycle. is there a way to reset it?


The Cycle is due to a process some Cyclic ~ Redundancy,...loL...:) Confused Computer Processes. Try to Unplug it completely from the Power Source. Leave it a while, turn it on while unplugged for a bit of time, like 2 minutes, turn if off, plug it back in. And try running it again. :)

There are 3 blinking lights on the control panel of my Fridgidaire PLD2850RDS3 dishwasher that will not turn off. The dishwasher will not run

I found where it was plugged in under the sink. I unplugged it and the lights stopped blinking and the dishwasher worked. I ran one dishload and it ran fine. I ran another one and it stopped at 1 minute to go and the lights were blinking again. So now I just unplug it when not in use. I'm runnin another load and see how it goes...

Water pump won't turn off. Have to unplug to stop

i assume you mean drain pump not turning off
take bottom front panel off and you will probably find water in the bottom tray.
mop it out and machine will go.
if fault reoccurs, you have a leak
