If the program controller is able to set the program , then the machine must start up. Only if the waste water/drain is clogged will there be a flooding resulting in fault in the drain cycle.
So it is important that the machine takes in water before the program moves on.
It is OK to check the waste line. look for the drain pipe, remove the drain valve/pump and it will be clogged. If there is a sensor to this it can switch off the machine- as you have not mentioned themodel/make.
So remove clean/flush and reset. If not the program controller must be checked.

I have a beko washing machinethe start button keeps flashing during a cycle and it wont go on to the next cycle


Make sure that the inlet flow is good, remove the inlet valve to check. Also check the door switch and then the connections of the program controller unit. If there is loose connections it can cause errors and halt the program. Also it can be related to the program controller unit if after resetting the above there is no change .

My kenmore dishwasher wont start at all now. It used to start if you pushed certain buttons a bunch of times but now the lights next to most of the buttons light up but it wont start a cycle. any ideas?


Hello

Ensure that the dishwasher is connected to a working power supply. Check the local fuse or circuit breaker and restart as necessary.

Open and shut the door firmly until it latches into place. The dishwasher will not function if the door is not latched into position.

Select the desired cycle and press the cycle button firmly, as you must choose a cycle in order for the dishwasher to begin operation.

Look at the water valve that is connected to the dishwasher and ensure it is turned on.

Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply to reset the unit. Plug it back in and select a new cycle. Select "Start." If the dishwasher still does not start, contact an authorized service technician.

My dishwasher clean light keeps flashing and wont run. it flashes 7 times and pauses then repeats. whats the issue?


This is an error code.

The error indicates that your dishwasher is failing to heat the water in an allotted time. The error can be caused by numerous issues but the first thing you want to do is reset the control board.

-To reset the control board press: high temp wash, heated dry, High temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash. If you don't have a "heated dry" button, use the "air dry" or "energy saver dry" button instead.
-All the lights will go solid at which point you press cancel to reset the board.
-If the control board doesn't reset, it's likely that you've just got a faulty control board and the control board will need to be ordered and replaced.
The next step in this process is to start a new cycle and see what happens. If the error code returns, then you'll want to reset the board again and check several things. The most common reasons for this error is because the water coming from your household is just too cold. The dishwasher is expecting 110 degree water to enter your dishwasher, so if your pipes are cold, the water may only come in luke warm. To correct this issue, just run your faucet next to the dishwasher until the water coming out is hot. On another note, make sure the dishwasher is washing with good water pressure. You can put a cup in the upper rack facing upwards and run a cycle to see if it will fill within 10 minutes of starting the cycle. If it doesn't fill with water then you know that the dishwasher isn't producing enough pressure which, in turn, will cause the water to not heat. You'd want to take your pump and motor assembly apart to clean inside if you had a loss of pressure.
You could also have a failed component including a faulty heater, control board, or high limit thermostat. You'd need to uninstall your dishwasher, disconnect power and lay it on it's back to check the resistance of the heater as well as the resistance of the high limit thermostat to confirm if they were bad or good. You should get tangible reading of between 5 and 30 ohms on the heater if it's good and less than one ohm on the high limit thermostat. If both of those devices check good, then replace the control board because that's the one device you cannot test.

I cannot figure out how to advance a cycle without having to go through the entire cycle. For example, I had a drain problem with my sink and the plumber put the rinse and hold cycle on for about 10...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your post doesn`t specify a model number, however on most Bosch dishwashers in order to change from "rinse & hold" to "regular" ( or any cycle ) simply turn the unit "on" and once the machine begins push the regular button twice.

Or the button applicable to the cycle you want.

That should change the display to look like this...

If this doesn`t work, try it for "econo" or any alternative and let me know how it goes.

Good luck.

Macmarkus :)

Whirlpool Dishwasher,serial number 330251002448 wont stop beeping


The main controller appears to be very confused or failed.
To test, fully remove power from the diswasher for at least 90 seconds. Power back on and test. If the same behaviour is seen, the controller card has almost certainly failed. A service call is the next step to repair.
If you reply, please include the model number of your Whirlpool Dishwasher. Good Luck!

Dishwasher fault


If you have tried to run any cycle and still end up with this problem, then most likely a failed timer unit. The next step is for the water switch to enact the next step which is to start the timer.
