Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Hi I have a Haier Domestic Dishwasher model WQP12-BFE. When I turn it on and select a wash cycle & it doesn't matter which cycle, the economy wash cycle light starts flashing and the dishwasher beeps 10 times and every 30 seconds. The economy cycle light continues to flash all the time. Please help Regards Adrian

    Thanks, but no change after trying that?

  • jadeandadria Sep 30, 2010

    So when you say 'locate the overflow switch at the base of the dishwasher under the filter assembly' do you mean completely remove the base of the dishwasher to access this?

It is possible the door switch is not making contact.

Can you see any difference if you press the door lock firmly?

    I noticed that this dishwasher has a few protection features but these are not documented in the user guide. I can see that it has a water level sensor and an overflow switch. See circuit diagram on last page of manual.

    It is possible there is water leak and the overflow switch is triggered. You will have to locate the overflow switch at the base of the dishwasher under the filter assembly and see if water has leaked into the pump / motor housing. Refer page 10 of manual for description of anti-flooding system.

    Hope this will help find the source of the problem.

    To get to the components at the base of the dishwasher, you will have to take out the stainless steel shell which forms the tub. I don't have access to the actual assembly diagrams, but usually this is held together with the body by the screws that hold the door gasket at the bottom.

    The other thing to check is if you are using the recommended anti-flood system suggested by the manufacturer when connecting to the inlet tap. If you are using the recommended device at the tap and a special hose, then if the hose is likely to cause a break in the circuit if cracked.

    The leak may not be there but the electrical circuit with the anti-flood system may be playing up. Check the hose to make sure it is not broken. if you are using hot water connection then check if the temperature of water coming in is within specification.

How do you get the child lock off on a Haier dishwasher?

Just consult the manual. :>)

Changing the Wash Program / Cycle:
If at any time during the washing process you would like to change the
selected wash program /cycle;
1. Press and hold the START / RESET button for approximately 3 seconds.
(The START / RESET indicator light will be ON indicating that the unit is
in PAUSE mode.)
2. Select the desired wash program / cycle by pressing the program
3. Press the START / RESET button again, the dishwasher will resume
operation using the newly selected wash program / cycle.
NOTE: If you change the wash program / cycle after the detergent
has been dispensed or the dishwasher has already drained the
water, you will need to refill the detergent dispenser for the newly
selected program / cycle accordingly.
At the End of the Wash Cycle Once the dishwasher has completed the selected wash cycle / program,
there will be a buzzer sound for 8 seconds indicating the end of the cycle.
1. Shut off the water supply.
2. Turn the dishwasher OFF by pressing the ON/OFF button.
3. Open the door slightly with caution to allow any residual steam to
4. Wait a few minutes (approximately 15 minutes) before unloading the
dishwasher as the dishes and cutlery will be hot. This also aids in the
drying process.
5. The interior of the dishwasher will be wet, this is normal and will dry
WARNING: It is dangerous to open the door when dishwasher in
Checking the Water Temperature
For the most effective cleaning and to prevent damage to the dishes being
cleaned, the water supplied to the dishwasher should be at a temperature
of at least 120?F (49?C) and no more than 150?F (66?C).

Child Lock Function
The child lock function will prevent the unit from functioning and the door from being able to open if it is in the fully closed position.
To engage the function, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will illuminate in the display when the child lock function is activated.

To disengage, press the "3-in-1" button and the "Delay" button at the same time. The "lock" icon will go off in the display when the child lock function is deactivated.

Dishwasher cycle goes on and on like for an hour and a half, I turn it off !!! Model WQP12-BFE

if the sump is clogged up with with debris or the macerater is broken or the heater is not operating , the dishwasher will not operate properly and operate for a long time. Best off to call a reputable service company such as Sears.

Need an instuction manual for nobel dishwasher wqp12 efmsa

Possibly an element or thermostat problem.The dishwasher rely's on the thermostat to tell it wether it can progress through the cycle or not.The washer will stay washing in the one spot until desired temperature is reached then the washer will progress on.

Hi jannewbery,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have looked in the manual under troubleshooting tips, but didn't find anything on the problem. The dishwasher goes into cycle,but during the wash cycle it stops,makes alarm and the wash and rinse ligts come on. And now you can't even find the product on this site.Westpoint Dishwasher WQP12-9240.
Thankyou Your dishwasher is stopping at stage 2 of the programme after beeping once. Quite often the detergent flap doesn't open. Am at your wits end and threatening to leave home!!!! The machine is less than a year old. PLEASE HELP!!!! Thank you.

Don't leave just yet. It sounds like a control problem. The d/w should still be under warranty if it is less than one year old. Use it before it runs out. I don't recomend this type of repair for the average homeowner.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
