Hi.

Re:"Is It the dial because everything else seems thing?"

It is not necessarily the dial. The dial is expensive and difficult to test directly, before replacing it you test any other possible cause. From now onward I will call the dial CCU (central control unit).

Before replacing the dial check:

Inlet, water temperature and thermostat.
This is most likely cause if dishwasher hangs in the middle of the cycle.Ensure that water is hot. If there is no hot water, check water inlet line and inlet valve.
Have a look at inlet lines at the back ensuring that they are not kinked or blocked.
Even if there is hot water the thermostat must be tested. The thermostat must read zero impedance at room, and cut at limit temperatures below 80C, reading open when hot. If thermostat does not open, then the cycle will not advance as CCU does not detect water is at temp.

Pressure switch.
This is located near to the drain hose, and detects water level. If problem is pressure switch you get cycle hanging in drain. Pressure switch is difficult to test and cst relatively little money, it gets replaced if the problem is water level related.

Door latch.
It must always be tested by running a cycle with contacts jumped.

The anti-flood (aquasafe) device located at the base of the unit may also cause cycle stopping, in that case the machine will stay off from a point onward, with light still on but not cycling. The device is tested in full by jumping it.

Some of the tests above are suitable for a technician, if you need to call a repairman, call Candy service number listed on manual.

Dishwasher does not complete cycle


Does it have standing water after cycle? If so you can turn the knob until you hear the water kick into the sink. let it drain this way completely and stop the dishwasher before it starts to add more water. turn the dial or switch to its off location and the let the dishwasher cycle completely to ensure issue is solved. Your dish washer is "short cycling". This usually works 9 of 10 times

Blanco bfdwc61ss dishwasher wont finish washing in any cycle...its doesnt stop, just keeps going and going...it went all night without stopping and the dial didnt move...can you advise what to do??


please see the causes 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.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine gets stuck in cycle.


Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher seems to be stuck on the wash cycle for over an hour. How to I fix this?


check to see if you don't have it on an extended wash cycle setting. After that, check to see if the dial is stuck.

If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timer 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.

Cycle Sticks unless I manually move it along


Ya, the mechanical timer/dial is the problem. The heating element just got stuck on as the timer stalled in that dry cycle.

Our Nautilus dishwasher won't turn on. I can hear a buzzing noise, but nothing is happening. Does anyone now what I should do?


The same thing happens with my dishwasher. I have made it work by doing the following. When you start up the cycle, turn the dial to just a tick before "start." If you hear the buzzing, but no water is running, unlock and then lock the dishwasher door again. This usually gets it running. If it's still not running water, unlock, advance the dial a little bit, and lock again. This should work. You need to be around for the early parts of the dishwashing cycle because this machine tends to stop up and buzz without running water until it gets past "short wash." Every time this happens, do the same thing, unlock and lock, and advance the dial a little when necessary. Once you get past "short wash," it should complete the wash without intervention.
