    I have the same problem - a Diplomat dishwasher (no model number but my google-searching leads me to believe that it is a re-branded smeg) will not finish any of the cycles.  When I have to interupt it, the wate ris luke warm or cold and the tablet is not dissolved.

SOURCE: diplomat adp 8242 beeps twice one flashing light

Turn off plack power button, turn back on, then press cycle selection button 4 times very quickly. flashing lights should change, shut machine and it should fire up and work...... it worked for me. May have to try it several times as getting the 4 button press timed right can be a bit tricky.

Check the small drain pump. Possibly its asking the pump do drain to allow for fresh water, but because low level is not detected it shuts down. The dispenser draw normall opens when the hot wash cycle starts.When you think its washing,briefly open door and see if eater is spraying out of the nozzels.If no water visible, check the main wash motor for sticking

Hello,

There's never a good time for the washer to stop working correctly. If a washing machine's agitator isn't working properly, your clothes won't come clean.

The back-and-forth movement of the agitator is a main function in the cleaning process of your laundry.

If your agitator isn't working, it could be the agitator itself or broken splines in the assembly beneath the agitator. Either one is a relatively easy and inexpensive repair that you should be able to do yourself.

Instructions and material needed :Socket wrench,Rope,Broom,Replacement parts

  1. Inspect the agitator for breaks. If the agitator is broken or cracked, you'll need to replace it. A broken agitator won't operate correctly, if at all. If the agitator looks fine but isn't moving, you'll need to inspect the plastic splines in the agitator assembly located underneath the agitator.
  2. Remove the agitator from the washing machine by first removing the fabric softener dispenser cap on top of it. This cap should either pull or screw off. It it's difficult to remove, you might have to pry it off.
  3. Unscrew the bolt beneath the softener cap with a socket wrench. Once you've removed the screw, try lifting the agitator out of the washer. If it doesn't easily lift out, loop a rope underneath one side of the agitator and over a broom handle. Continue looping the rope under the other side of the agitator and back over the broom. Using caution not to hit yourself in the head, pull up on the broom until the agitator comes loose.
  4. Replace the broken agitator with a new one. Snap the new one in place and secure the bolt underneath the fabric softener cap. Place the cap back on the agitator and you're ready to start washing.
  5. fix-washing-machine-agitator-1.5-120x120.jpg
    Check the plastic splines in the assembly directly underneath the agitator, if the agitator itself isn't broken. If the plastic splines are broken or worn down, this will keep the agitator from properly moving. In fact, it might not move at all. Replace the spline assembly with a new one and reassemble the agitator by reversing your steps to remove it.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

Bosch dishwasher stuck wash cycle


If you post your model number I and others may be able to help you further.
Short of that, it sounds like, the dishwasher stops because it's waiting for the water to get to the right temperature before it advances. If you open the door and the water is cold, you need to replace your heater because it's not heating the water. If the water is really hot, then replace the thermostat inside the door because it's not reading the water temperature correctly and advancing the timer.

Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


Hi


Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Our Neff S5454x1/21 dishwasher has occasionally stopped/stuck


Looks like the heater unit has packed up.

I cannot seem to find the actual model you have anywhere on the internet. But I am assuming you connect the dishwasher to cold water inlet and it is meant to have a heater.

Are you in UK or Europe. Bosch also makes parts for the NEFF dishwasher but I am not able to find spare parts for your exact model.

Please post a comment.
