CDA CW 446 dishwasher problem

Could anyone help me with this please?

I have a CDA CW 446 (It has a Whirlpool Home Appliances sticker inside the dishwasher door) that won't work.

I've used the 'rinse' mode to drain any water, then restarted it and this has worked intermittently in the past. But now it's not really working.

What happens is, I turn it on, choose the '55 degree setting' and close the door, after a short while you hear a pump noise for about a second then it goes 'beep beep' (2 second silence) 'beep', then repeats this until I turn the power switch to off.

When you open the door the 'green light is flashing on and off over the 55 degree setting'.

Could anyone help me with this. Ideally how to 'reset' the dishwasher or similar?

Many thanks,

Emma

The clean light sometimes flashes and just needs to be reset. To do so hit the keys in the following order. <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Heated Dry> <Normal Wash> <Cancel>.
The dishwasher will go through a cancel cycle (drain the tub) and will then let you start it up again.

Is there a reset button on it? If so, press that. There are also sequences of buttons which one has to push to reset it. These are kept secret. Try pressing Hi Temp and Heated Dry, turn loose and press again within Five seconds. Or turn off the electricity and see if that resets it

Greetings,
usually, open and close door..then start counting the flashes. these will give you your fault code. The code then tells us where to go from there. off hand, i would say you have a heater problem.. Either, the water is not getting hot enough because of a faulty heater, or faulty thermostat. The button above the green light that flashes try and hold that down for a minute to reset....let me know about the flashes

Can somebody tell my how to use cda dishwasher as i have no man ual


CDA dishwashers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so you can download the instruction manual from here: http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001

Type the model number (e.g. cw494) into the 'commercial code' box and it will bring up all relevant manuals.

I have a cda cw 496 dishwasher, the water is draining and filling up to the machine, but the rotating arms are not getting the flow of water and not moving. I have checked the machine for blockages,...


Sounds like the circulation pump. I had the same problem on my CW496. The original circulation pump was pretty cheap and nasty and although it was still working had lost a lot of power and was struggling to turn the rotating arms. The dishes were still dirty at the end of the wash. The replacement pump was far higher quality, bigger and relatively easy to fit. I got it from a dealer local to me.

Trying to find the model #s for GE appliances. Refridgerator serial #: DZ229982 and Dishwasher SN#: MM725497B.


Model numbers are usually found on the inside of the doors of the appliances. Look for a white sticker with black printing.

Does you dishwasher have a rinse aid fill? Most newer dishwashers will have this feature and really helps with water spots. Hope this helps.

Hey guys, what is the model number of your dishwasher?The people/person that installed it could have wired it wrong.There is also a high limit (saftey device) that has tripped therefore not letting the element heat.As for the refrigerator it sounds like the compressor making that noise as they do tend to whine but not noticeable.If these appliances are less then a year old the should be under warranty.Let me know.

Smeg Dishwasher - model unknown


model numbers for dishwashers are generally where you can get to from the front, if they are noit on the front panel then look inside the door rim where the rubber seal is, either a small sticker on the door rim itself (inside) or where the door fits on the main cabinet, open the door fully to look for this sticker, sometimes placed under the front of the lid
