SOURCE: Have an omega technowash dishwasher, not sure how

Sounds like the motor or something overloads the circuit.
You could always call a repairman...but with the prices on these at Lowes or Home Depot, it might just as well to replace it.

I always take the price of an appliance and divide it by the years of service to see how much it costed me to use each year. I know, sounds crazy...but if ya spend $300 on a washer and only get 3 years out of it...then it costed you $100 a year...6 years you're down to $50 a year.

(These days, if you get 5 years out of an appliance...you're on borrowed time. They just don't make appliances like the "Admiral" that grandma had.)

Hi

You most likely have a fault with the Thermostat. That is common on Omega Technowash which is similar to a Smeg dishwasher. More often than not the Thermostat fails rather than the heat element. However, not to completely dismiss a failed heat element.

The thermostat is not very expensive. If you don't have the means to test the element or thermostat via a multimeter, you can order the thermostat to have a go at fixing it yourself.
Unplug the machine from its power point.
"Two screws in the front kick plate. Open these and lift off kick plate. When you open the dishwasher door you will see an L-shaped heat element which is on the bottom of the bowl on the left and back of machine. The Thermostat is the round metal head situated on the front left in between the element coils. When you look from underneath inside where you have removed the kick-plate you can see two wires going to your heat element and 4 wires going to the Thermostat (either 2 White and 2 purpule) or (2 red and 2 white).
The thermostat is pushed in from the bottom and sits in a groove of a rubber seal. You can pull it down and out from underneathe and twist and push up the replacement in its place. Make sure the sharp metal edge of thermostat is poped insided the groove, otherwise the machine will leak.

Try this first, I am fairly sure it is the thermostat. If you have a multimeter you can check continuity of the heat element.

If you think this solution helped you please vote 4 thumbs up and give me a testimonial.

Thanks
Ash

Omega technowash won't fill


Many times the problem lies in the water inlet valve. It is not hard to replace and you will find it where the waterline hooks to the dishwasher. You can goole appliance parts stores and find a number of companies that you can order from.

Keep going through the whole water path, including the impeller, and the last connection at the drain.

You should actually disconnect the hose from the dishwasher end and check that water can go through it, otherwise it could be a faulty anti-flood device in the hose.
Failing this, you may have a faulty inlet solenoid.

My new omega washing mashine shows an E2 error code 5 miniutes into the wash how do I fix this?


Hello,

Manufactured by omega washing mashine have an electronic controlpanel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your washingcycle.
E2 indicates a water leak. When a leak occurs, it trips thefloat device by dumping water into the dishwasher's base. The incoming watervalve will be switched off, and the drain pump will turn on until the sump isempty
However, if an error light is blinking on your dishwasher'scontrol panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinkinglights on your washer control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needsto be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the controlpanel, contact Sears to service omega washing mashine or considertroubleshooting the appliance yourself carefully.Instructions
1 Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button onyour omega washing mashine for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher controlpanel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash,""Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after theother, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the washer to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the endof the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your omegawashing mashine. Thankfor using fixya.

This is the mechanical TIMER switch which is the main program controller unit. It seems that the controller has failed in the contacts or the stepper motor not advacing automatically due to wearing on the gears.
Hence you need to manually move the program forward.
The option is to try for a scrapped controller as many are easy to find from old repair stores, replace after you make notes of the wires to the controller.
Finally try and see if a degreasing spray can release or ease the movement if there is a possible jamming of the motor-- If motor is not running at all it could have failed.
