    I gave it a good long push and seemed to lose all control over every button. Then, with patience and opening and closing the door, I seemed to return to the same old place. Looks like a new control panel is it.

    Thank you

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The issue seems to be with the control panel going bad, if it has an AIR DRY button try to hold it for 10-15 seconds to reset the controls, if it won’t reset then the issue is with the control panel which should be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Whirlpool quiet partner iv. Turn breaker off then on. Displays 4H then goes off few mins later. Press the cancel button and then the POTS AND PANS along with NORMAL buttons start flashing back and forth.


this is not from me but i found it and am passing on..
Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error code 4h means 4 hour delay start which means that the dishwasher is in delay start mode and has been set to 4 hours. You can either wait for 4 hrs or to start it immediately press the cancel button to cancel the delay start option. After this program the cycle and options and press Start again as the dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour i.e. till 4hrs. If after 4 hrs still the light blinks and it wont start then you'll have to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?


You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Purple light is on and cycle won't start


It's possible that you have put the dishwasher into delay mode. Try powering off at the powerpoint as this will force a reset of all programming.



The pause/start button also sets the Delay Start feature which can delay the start of a wash program
from 1 to 12 hours.


To cancel Delay Start
Press the I button.

Dishwasher ran all night still not finished. Error code 4H displaying.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The 4H is indicating your dishwasher is in the delayed wash start mode. Here is some information from Sears about what to do:


  • The number letter combination indicates that the dishwasher is in a "Delay Start" mode, as well as how many hours were set for the delay start.
  • The dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour that it was set for. Example: 1H = 1 hour delay start, 2H = 2 hour delay start, etc.
    • To start the dishwasher immediately and not wait for the Delay Start time, cancel the "Delay Start" option, by pressing the Cancel button. Then program the cycle and options and press Start.
    • To start the dishwasher after the Delay time, select the cycle and options desired. Select the "Delay Start" option and on some dishwashers it requires, pressing the Start button.
    • Some dishwashers will display a countdown of the delay time on the display.
Note: Refer to the Owner's Manual or Use & Care Guide for specific instructions on using the "Delay Start" feature.

If you need more assistance we will need your exact model number in any of your future responses.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How to cancel delay start


Press the Delay Start button several times until the displayed delay start time is cleared or reads "00". Unplug the machine or flip the circuit breaker to the OFF position for at least half an hour or so to forcibly reset the control if pressing the Delay Start button does not alter or clear the displayed delay start time.
