Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Often had to press 'Start' up to 5 times to get it going. All lights light up but then go out. Occasionally the pump would run for a minute or so then whole shooting match would close down. Recently we were lucky and it filled with water but sadly disappointed when it closed down again. 8 people in the house so had to do the dishes in the sink (again!!). Plenty of helpers and a glass or two of wine so things weren't that bad. Not good for Dishlex though especially when others say theirs are not Dishlex, are older and still going. No, not the child lock - have managed to set and unset that a couple of times and still won't pump out. Pump seems to be running but no output then shuts down again. No serviceman available for another ten days. Is this a common fault? Lady who took the call seemed rather aware of our predicament and blogs on the Dishlex Global 300 site suggests so. Can someone help with a bit of advice please? Many thanks in anticipation. PaulN.

Problem not solved yet.
Cleaned the filters well, hoses clear and water delivery happens.
Both pumps work happily so are not seized/locked up or have anything jambed in them (pulled them both out and checked for foreign objects and impellor operation).
Seems to be in the contol panel so with lack of time available to me now due to the number of other ocmmittments, I will await the servicman to call next week.
Only two of us till Friday so I think we can cope.
Thanks for your offer to assist though.
If the serviceman wants to charge $400 I'll throw them both down the front stairs. It's not worth that much - will buy another (but alternative brand) on e-Bay if that's the case.
What I will do though, is post the repairs on this site once completed so all will know.

Regards

Blindy

Mode light stuck on clean. will not start by pushing the start button.


Hi


If clean light is blinking 7 times then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. If yes then please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset.
If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine.


Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.

The clean light blinks in a pattern of 7 times then off for a second and then 7 times again. The machine won't start any new program. If you press cancel nothing happens.

The clean light keeps blinking and the dishwasher will not start. I pushed the cancel button and it runs for about 30 seconds and just shuts off. Nothing happens when you push the start button.

F1 code on Fisher and Paykel dishdrawer


Hi,

It would seem to be in an endless loop (firmware glitch). Initially, pls try:
  • unplug from the mains or switch off the breakers for a couple of minutes;
  • plug back in/switch on the breakers say after 20 minutes;
  • press POWER to turn drawer on;
  • Press and hold (at the same time) both the POWER and ECO buttons for a few seconds;
  • a five minute demonstration wash cycle will come on;
  • press POWER again to put unit on standby, all the LCD segments will start flashing (and light up);
  • press and hold START/PAUSE for a few seconds to hear confirmation beep/tune.
Alternately, should you have the two-drawer, open any drawer and look at the wash intensity/economy buttons. Now press them, one at a time, alternating between the two, at even timing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Dishwasher lights blinking


QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.
