could be something in drain pump need to bail the water out of dishwasher best way is a small scoop take filter out and you can get to the lowest point of sump. Take water out and use sponge for the dregs . Un plug appliance and turn water off remove inlet hose and waste pipe. Lay the appliance on its back and remove the base of the appliance you will then see the drain pump remove 3 screw and gently remove pump head and remove object but watch finger if it's a shard of glass .

Flashing red flight


Its probably the cleaning light that comes on periodically to remind you to clean the unit. Shut off the unit AND when you do so hold down the power button for several seconds until the flashing red light shuts off. The cleaning light should stay off until the next cleaning is due.

Per the Air-O-Swiss FAQ:

Q: Cleaning light is flashing (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: Switch the unit OFF and unplug it. Empty the water in the base. Rinse the base with hot/clean water. Do not submerge the base! Visually inspect the base for dirt or mineral build up. If soft water is used decalcifying the unit every 4 weeks with EZ Cal is suggested. If hard water is used the unit should be decalcified every 2 weeks. Do not forget to reset the clean light after resetting the unit.

Q: Reset cleaning light (AOS U650, AOS 7135, AOS 7142, AOS 7144, AOS 7147)
A: The cleaning light does not automatically reset. Hold down the power button (button A in instruction manual) until the light stops flashing. The light automatically comes on approximately 14 days after plugging in the unit.

The CLEAN light is flashing on my Kenmore QuietGuard3 , but it won't clean anything. It starts a cycle for a few minutes, stops and starts flashing clean again. Any suggestions?


You will have to reset the dishwasher. First try and turn off the mains power and back on after a short time. If the clean light flashing starts again then you go through the hard reset procedure.

press NORMAL WASH then HEATED DRY buttons one after the other until all the lights on the board lit up (3X's). The dishwasher will enter into a cycle; Press Cancel. This should stop the flashing.
If you are supplying dishwasher from hot water inlet then make sure the inlet water temperature stays within the recommended range of 145 deg F.

Dishwasher error code


The manual shows there are 3 possible causes of the alarm
1. water supply is not there
2. drain time is too high - possibly a blockage in the kitchen sink drain
3. the water overfill in the base.

Most likely the cause could be 2 or 3. If kitchen drain is clear then the reason could be a faulty overfill switch at base of dishwasher assuming there is no water collected at the base where the motor and pumps are located.

My dishwasher ( 66517269400) won't turn on. Circuit is fine. It is getting power. I replaced the fuse. Clean light is flashing 7 times. Manual says "dishwasher has malfunctioned. Call for...


The F7 error code(light flashes 7 times) is a one of these, Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked.
So what you need to check is if the correct water level is in the tub,to check that start d/w let it fill and once you longer hear water entering,open door and the water should be level or just above the heat element, if not enough water first check water pressure to inlet valve,if pressure is good replace the water inlet valve part # 8531671 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

Washing light is flashing and dishwasher won't start


Hi

First make sure that nothing is blocking the drain pump assembly located inside the lower front panel of the dishwasher. If the issue returns after its cleaned then it means that the control board has gone bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The trouble looks to be little confusing. Whenever the power fails
during mid cycle this happens. Try running the balance cycle.

Since you say the water is fully drained, try adding water manually to
the wash chamber to certain level ( not to over flow ). Give a try!

There should be a master reset for which, you are requested to check
the user manual

Shortly after turning my indesit idl530 on a fault code appears


the problem you are getting is a f01 fault,this is water in the base part of the antiflood devise.to check this if you tip the appliance backwards and water comes from the back at the bottom this is the problem,if you do this till it stops and then leave for approx 24hrs to dry out any water that may have gone on to motor,then check by switching on to start a program,if appears to work ok but then goes back to the same fault(draining all the time and light flashing)you will have to remove base and check for leaks.
