    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.

Diplomat dishwasher bleeping showing FA


We have just experienced an FA audible error on our Diplomat ADP 8332 dishwasher...after pulling the dishwasher out and removing the low front panel we found the drip tray full of water. We tipped the dishwasher onto it's front and removed the drip tray and found a float pressure switch...it appears that once the drip tray is full the float switch activates and causes the FA fault (prevents the dishwasher from continuing) drain off your drip tray replace all covers and you should be good to go!!
