    I too had the same problem and here is how I fixed it.... Turn off the machine from the front panel, hold down the Start/Pause button and then turn on, keep the Start/Pause button fixed and the machine will show every light lit and number 8 on the display. This shows that the machine is fully resetting itself. It will after a few minutes just display the power light and there you go.... As long as there are no physical hardware problems you should be back washing again.

Hello there:
It doesn't work at all If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these: first Power from the house Door switch Wiring Timer or selector switch Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker. Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors. Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Dishwasher Repair Guide: How To Fix a Dishwasher - ACME HOW TO.com
Please find above A couple of service and repair manuals for your generic dishwasher, use these to troubleshoot and hopefully repair your unit, below them, is a DIY help link, that should prove invaluable.
This "Fix" below, works many times regardless of why... So it is worth a try. Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

    Hi.

    By mistake I posted an incomplete comment.

    Trip circuit breaker.
    Connect back power.
    If light are still there try holding down start or clear button for few seconds.

    If lights do not clear that means that there is a fault. In that case I can be more specific by knowing the model number.

    Regards.

How do you disable the cycle completion signal/beep on the Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

I think can answer your question..."How do you disable the cycle completion signal/beep on the Bosch SHU9915UC dishwasher?"


Follow these steps...

**How to Operate the Cycle Completion Signal**


1. Open door, hold down program button (see
Beeper Table below) and simultaneously turn the unit "ON".


MODEL Program BUTTON

SHU 9950 Delay Start Hours
**SHU 9910-9920 Delicate/Econo** should be yours
SHU 8800/8810 Quick Wash

SHV 6800 Delay Start Hours
SHV 4800 Delicate/Econo
SHV 4300 Delicate/Econo


2. Release program button.
a. For SHV 6803 and SHU9950 models:
The display will blink with a code of "0", "1" or
"2". You are in program mode.

• If the display blinks with a "0", you will hear
no signal (indicates OFF).

• If the display blinks with a "1", you will hear a
LOW volume signal.

• If the display blinks with a "2", you will hear a
HIGHER volume signal.

b. For all other models with the beeper
function:

• If the machine beeps, then the Cycle
Completion Signal has been enabled.

• When you push the button again and it does
not beep, it means that the Cycle Completion
Signal has been disabled.

3. To change the program, press the program
button until the desired setting is selected.

4. Turn the Dishwasher off to take it out of
program mode.

* At the end of a wash cycle, the beeper will sound
off two times, and again every 15 minutes until the
dishwasher is turned off.

Hope this answers your question and provides you with what you needed.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck.

Please take a moment to rate the solution provided and a short testimony if you feel it's warranted, but also let me know if you require further assistance.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The program light goes off and the BF162 doesn't start...


When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

I have a technika diswasher,not sure of the model, is approx 3 years old and has a big dial on the left hand side with 7 wash functuions and the power button is smaller and is on the RHS. I cant remember...


I have the same model. You just turn the dial to the setting you want, push the dial back in, turn the (right) power button on then turn the smaller start button on. I use different cycles all of the time depending on whats in the load and this works fine for me.
