First 2 lights flashing on the dishwasher, will not go off. All this after the repair man leaves - called him said maybe the float is stuck.

If the repair man left without the machine working perfectly, he owes you a return visit to finish the job.

Kenmore 655.13222 k601 bought 5 months ago after

Call sears and they can tell you normal cycle times according to your model. 1888.536.6673. Maybe argue with them to replace this unit since so many issues within 5 months.

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light

if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

similar problems here, repair man says its fine but the salt light was on so i added salt and works ok now. Some dishwashers don't function properly without the salt and rinse aid, even though you're pills may have then included, you still have to add them seperately, dumb but necessary at times.

Hygena Dishwasher doesn't fill with water

Sorry that is a UK model and wont have any access on how it works.. but you can check the water level probe (if Equipted) clean it off.......... the elements should only come on once the probe tells the board it has water dont let the element dry fire they will burn out fast when not in water

Dishwasher will not start

turn unit off at the breaker and leave off for 10 mins before turning back on,  if this does not reset the unit, then your control board is probably bad or the heating element could be going bad.  call a repair man for service

Washing light flashes on Frigidaire FDB1050REM dishwasher

1) Turn off the breaker to the machine.

2) Wait 30 seconds and then turn it back on.

3) All the lights will be flashing. At this point turn the dial to "rinse only" and then press "Heat dry" and "Start/Cancel" at the same time.

4) The Machine will go into maintenance mode going through all the cycles quickly.

5) After this is finished the problem should be solved.

Washing powder door broken

The door is usually opened by a solenoid that is actuated by the timer. Sometimes, the solenoid becomes stuck in the open position. If so, you may be able to see the opening. You can try banging on the door near the latch with something relatively soft sometimes to free it but usually the door must be disassembled to repair it if it's an electrical failure.
