Without knowing the make and model it probably has water in the base and is running the drain pump all the time to evaccuate any water that may be there. You see it thinks there is a flood. So......tilt the machine slightly onto a towel and see if water runs out. If so drain all of the water and observe the cycle. if there is a leak you will soon see the same condition occurr again. Good luck Tony

Dishwasher door wont close


you did not giver manufacturer, model and year, it is not possible therefore to give detailed info what to do - for future references - do provide these "little" details, telepathy is overrated and usually do not work...

from your description can be several causes of that, one of them is motherboard fault, another will be actuator and third can be mechanical fault within lock or with hinge... make your pick...

Why does drain motor start when pushing the start button on the door before the door is closed?


It's almost certainly the float switch in the bottom of the machine. In the bottom is a polystyrene 'float' that is either active due to water in the bottom or is faulty. Tip your machine to the side and remove water and try again, bridge or replace switch is also an option

Water in bottom of dishwasher, how do i drain & reset?


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

Cleaning Cycle not Starting


Please provide the model number and the approximate age of the dishwasher.
If this diswasher uses a turning dial to select the cycle, which turns as the dishwasher progresses, I strongly suspect that this timer has failed and needs replacement. Especially since the soap door never opens. Does the dishwasher drain during and at the end of the full cycle?

Dishwasher quit during cycle.


Need a little more info.. anyway.. open dr will shut off dw...close dr.. push power button until power on... lights on, but nothing happen.. try holding down drain and one of wash cycle.. repeat holding drain w/other buttons until you hear drain pump running.. make sure you hold both buttons for a few seconds.. if your drain pump works.. then, you might have a problem w/your wash motor or something is stuck in the impeller area.

Clean light flashes constanly. Won't clear out to start new cycle


If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
