Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Telmann Dishwasher TEL 12DWM. Dishwasher started to make weird wooshing start-stopping sounds at the beginning of the wash cycle so I stopped it. Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck. Cant get into the water jet part due to connectors that require specfic tools to remove and replace. Any thoughts?? thanks in advance, Michael

SOURCE: another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

If you are still trying to sort out this issue try the following.

From what you say then it is most likely the aqua sensor on the side of the dishwasher. The gurgling sounds that you hear are likely the drain pump running and the un-drainable water sloshing in the sump.

Verify that there is actually water going to the dishwasher( Basic step but often overlooked)

Next the inlet valve will have to be checked. This is the part where the water line from the house connects to the dishwasher, under the toe/kick panel. Remove power from the dishwasher. Disconnect the dishwasher electrical connections (2 wires) to the inlet valve and connect it (carefully to 110 V power) using a jumper wire. With 110V power the valve should open and water will flow into the dishwasher, if not then the fault is in the inlet valve.

If this checks fine then the fault is likely in the aqua sensor...

On the outer left side (viewed from front) there is a panel, Behind this panel there is a small clear(of light blue) plastic mechanism with hoses and wires attached( There is usually a yellow disk at the top about 6cm in diameter) this is a float and sensor assembly there is tells the control the water level and works as an emergency drain if there is an issue. There will be a red stick protruding downward to the base and a Styrofoam float on which the stick rests. This is a pan overflow sensor if the stick is too high the unit will go into drain and cut off the fill valve power. The yellow disk is a diaphragm which senses water height. This unit can become stuck with wear and hard water.

THIS TYPE OF M/C PERMIT WATER TO FILL IN LONG TIME IF THE PRESSUR IS LOW

SOURCE: My Bosch diswasher water inlet work fine, when the

Hi, it sound's like the wash motor is either seized or just stuck, let's hope it's the later. Bosch had issued a service tip about this problem several years ago titled "Loosening Frozen Impellers" strange choice of word's considering nothing is froze..at least you'd hope lol. I have a copy of it at home and I can likely post it later, ( I'm on my iphone presently ) but essentially what it say's is this...Remove the pump fitler ( inside the tub under the bottom rack ) locate the hole to your right down in the sump well, you should be able to see it with a flashlight or well lit area. Once you've located this hole ( it's providing access to the wash impeller without pulling the unit from the cabinet ) reach in with a 8mm nut driver and locate the end of the impeller and turn it clock-wise until it feel's to turn freely. Give it a test perhaps in a rinse cycle before you put all the filter and screen back together. It should be fine unless the motor is seized, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, try the repair tip for now. Let me know how that help's and/or if you need further assistance. Thank's for visitng "fixya" for you repair tip's. If this is indeed helpful please rate the solution accordingly, if not, again please let me know. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: drain pump running when unit starts but no water to appliance

Had this problem and a forward tilt pulled it out of flood protection mode but I had to manually drain all the water out into a bowl first - just using the drain hose at the back. Then running a cycle with one of those Finish liquid dishwasher cleaners, letting the unit go through a normal cycle and drain into a washing-up bowl cured it.

NO ON OFF SWITCH


Hello Heather, I know It is weird they don't have a on and off switch, but when the cycle is done it turns off. Turn it on by starting the cycle. You can stop the cycle by unlatching the latch when it is running. So like if you need it quiet, just open up the dishwasher door a little bit, it will stop. Close the door and it will finish washing.

913T Dishwasher Stops after 10 seconds


913T is a very old model (1996), I have one, I'm not a repairer, I have the same fault. It doesn't have drawers or infrared or a display.
I've just shortened the ribbon cable, which had pinch damage at the door close pinch point. I used a male & female ribbon squeeze connector pair to make a good clean joint. With the cable fault it wasn't even starting the drain cycle. Now it does start, but then long beeps, and I suspect it's detecting a fault with the motor or a sensor or faulty wire, and is halting.
I've found running the rinse cycle first then allows the main wash cycle to run, no longer stopping at 10 seconds (after the initial drain), just as the first power wash commences.

I have an ASKO D3250 and it has recently started making a loud noise from the pump area. It starts as soon as the cycle begins and doesn't stop even if you open the door. It seems to stop about 90 seconds...


All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened.
Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue.
The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on clean water for the wash cycle.
Any excessive noise from the drain pump could be debris in the pump. e.g. broken glass.
You can remove the pump and check it for blockage or any foreign object.

At beginning of waswch cycle, water flows in. Then it stops and the cycle doesn't continue even though the countdown timer continues. Water flows out freely.


when the water comes in to dishwasher the wash pump should start if you hear a hummimg sound it means that the wash pump is either blocked or the capasitor on the pump is faulty or maybe the pump it self needs to be replaced

LG LD-12AW-2 DISHWASHER


what indication are you getting on the display? sounds like the water inlet sensor is defective. one needs to watch carefully from the start of the cycle to when the problem begins to be able to make a diagnosis.
