1 Answer

Hi, i have an MW511. All of a sudden it keeps stopping mid cycle with 2 red lights coming on and beeping like crazy. I have re packed the machine, a few times, so its not un balanced, also reduced the water level. Also, i only have the cold water hose on because i dont use hot but water is leaking out the other hose inlet. Does anyone know how i rectify these problems? Thank you

Hi just read your posting.Now the lights that are on when the machine beeps will be in a row of 8 lights.Starting from the left to right which lights are lit when the machine stops and beeps,Is it the 2nd and 5th or the 3rd and 7th ---etc---?Now to fix the water coming out of the hot hose as the machine is filling just fold the hot hose in half and tape it in this position.This will stop the water coming out of the hose.Please reply with additional information on the lights and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi just read your last posting.Now you mentioned the 1st light ,Is that all the lights that are on while the machine is beeping?Unfortunately there is no error code for that light being on by itself.Could you please confirm the lights that are on when the machine is beeping.Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Kaz,Just read your last posting.Now with this information I am now able to tell you the name of the error code on your machine.It is called MOTOR STALL.There are a few reasons why this error code happens in a machine and they are ,faulty wiring to the motor, the motor is faulty, the bearings and seals are faulty, or last but not least is the control module.Has your machine been noisy on spin? Has the machine been leaking water?Would you like me to help you test the machine for the faulty component?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you rectify the fault or find the fault.Looking forward to your reply.

Our 2 draw dishwasher stops mid cycle once or sometimes several times. The red light comes on and it bleeps until we press the start button then it will continues the cycle.

The red light and beeping indicates a fault. The fault code number will be indicated in the display or by other LEDs being lit. If you post back with the details of the display we may be able to help you.
