Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Our dishwasher goes straight from rinse to the endwithout going through the washing cycle. How do I change the cycle? Have tried holding the button to change the cycle, but doesn't change. The dishwasher is a Parmco PD6-PSF/PD6-PWF.

It turned out that the pipe bringing the water into the machine had a kink in it. We pulled the machine out and straightened it. A dishwasher technician suggested we look to see if the pipe taking water away from the machine might be the problem, but it was the incoming water pipe.

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle


Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol above the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the Sanitize button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

I have a Samsung dishwasher DMR77 series and when I push the button to wash the dishes it directly goes into the rinse mode. How do I fix this problem?


Try waiting it out - some dishwashers like to run a rinse first to get off the easy stuff, then it starts the wash cycle. Let it run it's cycle and see if it works.

I need to know what the buttons say on the dishwasher. Mine have no letters


Hi,

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.


If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.


I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC/33 5-cycle dishwasher whose labels on the cycle buttons have also worn away. While the Macmarkus post was helpful b/c I have some of the same buttons, can you tell me the labels...


Hi,

Some SHX46A washers have 4 cycles and others have 5 cycles.

I'm fairly sure your model has the hidden buttons on the top of the door and you stated you have five-cycle buttons, in which case they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack only cycle or Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus
3. Regular Wash
4. Delicate Wash
5. Rinse and Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down "Power Scrub Plus" and "Delicate" at the same time to cancel a cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration (from left to right) will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus
2. Regular Wash
3. Delicate Wash
4. Rinse and Hold.

I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

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 :)

Maytag Quiet Series 300 only goes to RINSE ONLY


Try unplugging the washer to reboot the computer board. Sometime power surges at night can cause undervoltage on the board and make it do funny things. Rebooting by removing power for 10 min will drain the board and start with a fresh program. This is true for microwaves, dishwashers, dryers, etc.....

Processor board sound bad. May be a loose plug ( or corroded connection on the plug ) . Unplug the dish washer from the wall plug before servicing. The open the front panel to expose the panel control board. Unplug the panel plugs and inspect them to assure no corrotion is apparent. If you see corrotion, use a pencil erracer to clean all contact points on the board and clean the plug the best possible. Plug the dishwasher plug back in the wall and check the unit for proper operation. If the operation is not correct, replace the circuit board. I hope this helps

The "Rinse Only Button" will not function even after going through the "Cancel" cycle.


br, sounds like you have a stuck keypad. This would be the only reason it is switching to a different cycle. Catriver..post back.
