We have a Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher and it just keeps running and running. Someone suggested that it may be the control panel. Does anyone have any other suggestions or experience? Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Fixya. The assesment of the control is likely accurate. Siemen is made by B/S/H/ ( bosch/ thermador/ siemen/ gaggenau) and there is plenty of president for this issue. Likely if you select just a rinse cycle it will complete fine since the rinse cycle doesn't call for heat from the element/control. sooo... Based on your description I'd say the issue IS indeed with the control. As I said B/S/H/ has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. ( unless you requested a resolder option...see below re: my opinion on this ) I digress, As I've alluded to the issue is within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). My first suggestion would be calling in an authorized bosch/siemen servicer if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you cannot afford that option or simply feel you want to attempt and are capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. This will be one of the pins from the heater relay, hence the unit sit`s and takes forever to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed. **My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...half assed will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on there behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power before attempting any service to the dishwasher. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Siemen/Gaggenau, to service your machine.** Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Please take a moment and rate this solution to it's helpfulness. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Siemens dishwasher- start button is flashing but will not start. some water in bottom of dishwasher.


Did you try turning off the circuit breaker to it, waiting about 15 minutes and turning it back on?

If that doesn't do it, I would start by checking your drain pump.

The water doesn't pass thought the first solenoid to get into the dishwasher? How can I fix it?


Far as I know, the solenoid is 110 volts.
If you will find a tester and check the leads, you should read 110 volts as soon as the machine control knob is turned to "run".
If not, advance it a click or two, and test it again.
If you have no volts, you likely have a bad control, not sending the signal.
If you have 110 volts, you'll likely need a new solenoid.
Be blessed.
