Question about Ariston Technologies Dishwashers

1 Answer

We have an ariston LS 620A dishwasher. For the last year every few months the dishwasher seems to cause a short in our electrical box causing all the power to go out in our house. It is only when the dishwasher is on that this occurs. We turn the power back on and everything, tv computer etc starts then turn the dishwasher on and everything shorts out again. We have had an electrician in who said that there was no electrical problem and that it was the dishwasher. After 2 months or so the dishwasher was turned on and no short occured. Then a few months later another short in the electrical supply when the dishwasher was on. We called a dishwasher repair service who couldn't find anything wrong either. He told us we were probably using to much powder. 2 months went by and the dishwasher started again. Now after another few months the dishwasher was toward the end of its cycle and the short happened again. We have been using tablets instead of powder so it is not excessive powder. The electrician says our electrical service is ok. We don't want to spend another $100 for someone to come to our home and tell us there is nothing wrong. Please help.... David Rose

The problem seems to be water seepage into the electrical contact.
If the heater has lost its insulation this problem could accur
( element to body )

Disconnect the heater and give a try without any load and soap. If it
performs OK , you have to check the heater by removing from the
machine. Mainly I suspect water seepage into the electrical system.

I smell my motor. Is it worth replacing, or buy new?

5 years seems short for a major appliance designed to give 10 years or more of service. I'd say it's worth repairing yourself.

Just make sure it is the motor, then dig a little deeper to find out why it failed. It can be from being bound up because of a jam in the pump, a leak causing the bearings to freeze, or in the case of inductive motors a failed starting/run capacitor.

I've seen failure of the waste water gate/valve solenoid due to a timer issue. You'll have to do your detective work and once you know exactly the part that is eminating the smell, you will have a path to backtrack from.

Remember, water and electricity don't mix and shut both off before working inside the dish washer!

Ariston LS 2020 taking more than two hours to go through cycle.

Ariston and on and

The water temp thermostat is to blame or the water is not heating.Basically what happens is the washer fills with cold water and starts to wash and heat at the same time.Once the water reaches a certain temperature it moves onto the next stage of the wash program.If the water is not heating or the thermostat is not working the programmer wont get the signal to move on.Hope this helps.

Something killing the battery

check for any lights staying at night, dome lights, sun visor lights for vanity mirror, glove box lights and so on, also have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause the battetry to run itself low, any Autozone or Kragen will test the battery for free.
