    I don't know what the two finger rating is and I have not posted any ratings to your comments, sorry about it if it happened. Maybe some default ih the system. I will try what you suggest and get back yo you. Many thanks.

Most likely the door switch is not engaging properly. Are you able to select programs and confirm the dishwasher is responding to the buttons on the panel.

Please provide full model number of the dishwasher so that I can investigate possible causes.

Also try to start the dishwasher in other programs like short rinse etc.

    Good to hear the problem is limited to pressing the start button.



    You will need to give me the full model no. 665.xxxxxxx



    Also press the door harder and hold it with your hand and press the start button. Any difference?

  • Sam Nov 14, 2010

    Looks like you have rejected my solutions going by the 2 finger rating you have given. If you want me to try to help you find the reason for the dishwasher problem then you will have to take the rating off so that the system will allow me to continue posting comments. Otherwise some other consultant could lock the solution.





    I still believe the cause is linked to the dishwasher door latch system which works through a micro switch when it detects door is latched.



    Check this diagram for the layout of the door latch on the panel. You will have to expose this part looking at the diagram and test if the micro switch (item 9) is closing when the latch lever is engaged.



    Please post a comment when you are able to check it out. Make sure the dishwasher is disconnected from the mains power when you are working on it.

We have a whirlpool ADG 7800 dishwasher ,getting a beeping sound and start button flashes 12 times? Any help


Hi
.
Ok try this and see what happens.
.
Hold the start button again till it beeps
Then select the first cycle on the left which should be the rinse cycle
Then turn the dishwasher off
Then press and hold the start button and with this held in turn the dishwasher on.
Once the start light is flashing let go
Now press the start button once and close the door.
.
Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it goes wrong it will drain the water out and beep. So open the door and count the number of flashes from the start light inbetween the pause and let me know.
.
Regards

I have a Bosch dishwasher model # shx4ap05uc/06 and I want to silence the alarm for when it is done. It goes off every 10 minutes until you open the door


Hi,

Yes, you can switch the cycle completion signal off (or raise/lower the volume)

1. Switch the dishwasher off using the ON/OFF button
2. Open the door
3. Switch the dishwasher on again. (One of the wash cycle LEDs will flash.)
4. Hold the > button in. Continue holding it and press and release the Start/Reset button once, then release the > button.

"Clean" and one other LED should now be flashing. This indicates that the dishwasher is in the options/settings mode. If they are not flashing, start over at step 1.

5. Press > repeatedly, until the LEDs for "Clean", "Sanitized" and "Rinse Agent" are all flashing.
6. Press repeatedly until none of the LEDs are flashing.

The number of flashing LEDs indicate the volume setting . . .

0 = Silent
1 = Volume level 1
2 = Volume level 2
3 = Volume level 3

7. Press the Start/Reset button once to save the setting and exit the options mode
8. Close the door
9. Switch the dishwasher off.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My dishwasher isn't working. The clean button


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, and then repeats this occurs when the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks 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


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

My maytag 200 quiet series dishwasher has a button with the number 3 next to the start/cancel button and will not start. The 3 flashes but won't start? Any idea what that means?


The control panel has bee locked. Press and hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds until the light next to the lock "3" button goes off. This feature is to prevent small children from starting it. Locking the controls works the same way, hold the heated dry button for 3 seconds will turn it back on.
