Will not complete wash cycle

Our dishwasher has stated acting up the other day when it would get to it appears the drain cycle it will just click every few seconds. I ran the automatic diags mode on it and it fails on the low current part of the test and if I hit the drain button it will attempt to spin up the motor then just click then it will just continue clicking eery few seconds. I disassembled the entire pump assem to be sure there was no blockage or broken componants. I assume it is the drain circuit side of the motor but before replacing is there another way of testing?

I had the same problem. It tried to start every few seconds when draining. I made sure there was nothing jammed in the motor, it was clean. I checked the resistance of the two windings and they were about the same. I thought it was the relay on the board but after changing it there was no improvement. I connected power directly to the motor and it just hummed. I then realized it was probably the starter capacitor. I swapped the wires between the drain and washing windings and started the motor in the diagnostic mode and it ran. While looking at the starter caps on the board I realized one was loose. I re-soldered both starter caps and it works fine.

I had the same problem. Capacitor for wash cycle completely unsoldered itself. Two 1 or 2 watt resistors nearby were getting so hot they were discoloring the circuit board. I was looking for a new capacitor when I saw jcschoen's solution, so I spent $12 on a soldering iron and solder and one hour later I am washing dishes!
More repair-it-yourselfers should enter these solutions. This was extremely helpful. It saved me over $142. Thanks

    OK I have got to post. After reading these fixes I decided to attempt a diagnosis and fix. I removed the access panel and inspected the circuit board. I found a large blue box (relay or capacitor I'm guessing) that was loose. I applied some fresh solder and BAM! Fixed! Thanks for taking the time to record this; without it I wouldn't have even attempted a fix.

If the cycle is complete and dishes are clean, then you need to worry. Try to pull the drain hose up a bit under the sink. Also buy a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit and run dishwasher as per instructions on the kit. That should clean any obsrtuctions in the drain side.

Hello there,

It would help to know the model number of the dishwasher, but on many Bosch dishwashers, you can switch the cycle cycle completion signal off as follows:

1. While holding the right-hand CANCEL/DRAIN button, also press and hold the ON/OFF button
2. When the LED above the CANCEL/DRAIN button illuminates and the beeping starts, release both buttons
3. Press the right CANCEL/DRAIN button repeatedly until the beeping tone is at the desired volume, i.e. silent!
4. Press the "ON/OFF" button again to set the volume.

On models with the wash cycle buttons on the top edge of the door, the CANCEL/DRAIN buttons aren't always explicitly labelled CANCEL/DRAIN. These buttons are also labelled RESET on some models.

On models with 3 and 4 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the third button when reading from left to right. On models with 5 wash cycle buttons, the right CANCEL/DRAIN button is the fourth button when reading from left to right.

Please try the above then let me know if you need further assistance. Please state the model number or series (i.e. Integra) of your washer if/when replying.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

If you hear the drain pump run after wash and rinse cycles then it is likely the problem is in the kitchen drain end. Have you got a disposal unit in the kitchen sink. Sometime it is full and causing a block.

If you don't hear the drain pump run then the dishwasher may not be getting out of wash cycle and simply timing out. In this case the drain pump could be the problem.
it might help if you provide the make and model of dishwasher and also confirm whether any lights are flashing when cycle is complete.

I had the same problem. Called the repair man, who said it was a defective control board. He ordered a new one, replaced it and now the problem is fixed.

Siemans dishwasher not draining


the water in the bottem of the machine under the mesh filter is normal. it acts as a lubricant for both motor impeller and drain propeller. if its greasy then try using only 1 tablespoon of powder soap from now on. now if the water level is ever above the mesh filter after a complete cycle, then you have a drain problem

Food particles are on dishes after washing


Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.

Water slowly filling cabinet when dishwasher is off.


either
leaking valve - to check, turn water off and see if it still happens
or
if appliance is plumbed in to a spigot on the sink trap, then when you empty sink, some of the water finds its way into the dishwasher via the drain hose. to cure, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck
