Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If it won’t stop and keeps on running then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My Amana dishwasher will start the cycle, but will run for a couple minutes, then cancel and drain....help!!


see the cause and fix it: God bless you
Float Switch

The float switch may be hung up and this can cause the dishwasher to be stuck in a cycle. Check the tutorial and the video for checking this part.

Timer / Control

If your dishwasher gets stuck in a cycle first try shutting off the breaker for at least 5 minutes if this does not correct the problem you will need to replace the timer / electronic control.

My bosch shx46a05UC/14 will not shut off. I can open the door and the dishwasher just keeps going?


Are you please able to confirm what exactly is happening when you mention "dishwasher just keeps going".

Is it in a wash cycle and throwing the water around through the wash arms or do you just hear a pump running with water sitting in the base. Most likely there is a leak into the base and the auto stop circuit is trying to empty the dishwasher by running the drain pump. I would suggest you check the base of dishwasher for leaks.

My Dishwasher starts as usual,,,fills with water then starts the wash cycle and quits after 5 seconds or so. it then does this 2 more times and shuts off completely. when i turn it on again it drains and...


Check the user guide manual. If resetting procedure is shown, follow it.
Otherwise the problem is with micro controller board. You have to contact the service provider as this is a computer program related fault.

If mechanical timer is used you can try cleaning them. But I doubt as the mechanical timers are no longer in use for the past few years.

Hope your incoming mains voltage is as per the recommendations!
110 V or 220 V as per your country standards.

Some times voltage fluctuations causes this problem. Should not be less than 10 % in any standard.

Heating Element Won't Turn Off


Ok, this is a control fault that may be corrected by shutting the power off for 5 minutes. this will reset the chip set on the control board. plug the unit back into the socket after the 5 minute ait and check to see if the element is still on. If so, replace the control board.
