The problem, as it turns out, was that a black wire was in the process of being completely severed, where it protrudes from door to bottom of dishwasher. Discovered when I took bottom panel off, inspected wires leading to door, and discovered the wire was partially broken - literally hanging by a thread. If door opened then closed, luck made enough connection for the dishwasher to operate. This time, one thread was not sufficient for connection, thus, it would not restart. Replaced wire and all is working fine.

How do I restart my double flashing dishwasher?


Hi,

What kind of dishwasher are you talking about? What's the model number, how old is it? This information is important as not all dishwashers work and operate the same. I need more information to assist you.
Thanks

Dishwasher motor starts and stops


Hey Bill,
Not professing to be any kind of a dishwasher repairman but I have had a similar issue with the start and stop thing and it turned out to be the timer motor had started to go, and in going it 'burned' a couple of sets of the contacts as well. Check with a local appliance repair centre and see first if they agree with me, and if they have anyone who can rebuild the timer - Typically not too hard to get access to and remove - In my case in Canada, it had to go to Toronto pre-paid but $70 was cheaper then a new dishwasher and it's worked great for years

Indesit Dishwasher not washing properly or draining


Could be a few problems here. The main one may be the timer. Generally the timer will tell each part to do what it needs to do and when, if it is not closing relays then you get a dishwasher full of dirty dishes. I would also check the pump to make sure it is operating properly. But I would venture a guess at the timer being the main problem.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

I have a white film left on the dishes i've had this dishwasher for about 4 years and this just started


Place a cup of vinegar in top rack corner (upright) and run an empty cycle to clean any build up.
Stop using any rinse-aid (jet-dry etc.), if the detergent you're using already has it included. Too much rinse-aid can create a white film on your dishes. A good way to check for rinse-aid build up is to run your fingers on the inside of the cabinet and check for a white powdery residue on your fingers. You can also run the dishwasher for a couple of minutes and check for excess suds in the water when you open it. Excess suds would indicate a rinse-aid build up.
Run the hot water at the tap before starting the cycle and make sure it's at the recommended temperature (120-140°F).
Good luck!

Food particles left on dishes. Whirlpool quiet partner 1


You do not have to take it apart to clean it. You can run it a couple of times with dishwasher tablet and it will self clean. In general I recommend rinsing the food off of the dishes and silverware before placing items into the dishwasher. Also, run the hot water in the sink until it gets hot and then turn on the dishwasher. good luck with it.
