SOURCE: Dishwasher beeping

here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.baumatic.co.uk/products/discontinued-models/dishwashers/freestandingdishwashers/BFD60SS I couldn't find anything that suggests a solution in the book. check this thread below for the reset procedure for another model - it may be worth trying; http://www.fixya.com/support/t137657-need_reset_dishwasher_but_dont_know other than that it sounds like the control circuit board has problems. unplug your machine and wait half an hour. undo the control housing by a few screws on the top inside of the door and maybe plastic clips moulded in the edge of the housing. look if any components on the board are obviously burnt or water damaged - sometimes they fail without visual signs but you might spot something. If you fancy replacing the board yourself, just make sure you take a picture of how it was wired up, and post me back the serial number and manufacturer on the board and i will try and source one for you - these boards on their own are rarely that expensive and are often in a lot of other manufacturers models so are usually easy to find. Hope this helps :)

HI
The strainer is located directly under the lower sprayer arm. When the strainer becomes clogged with food and detergent debris, the dishwasher may flood or overfill. On some dishwashers, the strainer is a plastic or metal component consisting of two semicircular halves. To remove this type of strainer, pry it up. On other dishwashers, the strainer is a one-piece component. To remove this type, remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on its shaft. Then remove the sprayer arm and the strainer.

Wash the strainer in the kitchen sink with water and a mild household detergent. Use a fairly stiff brush to get all the debris out of the holes and slots in the strainer. Rinse the strainer well and replace it. If part of the strainer lifts out for regular cleaning, check it and clean it -- if necessary -- after each load of dishes is washed.

I have this problem frequetly - it's an easy one to fix! Just press the programme button which changes the programme setting you want (on my built-in GSX4756 it's the last button on the right) and keep it pressed in until the beeping stops. Then start it again (will probably be on the rinse programme if it's like mine).

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaves white film on

If your dishes or plastic dishes appear with a white filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you?re using and adjusting your hot water heater?s water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.

Next, you?ll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic).

If the film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature.

Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn?t anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:

1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don?t use extra-hot settings such as ?Power Scrub,? and use the ?Energy Saver? dry cycle.

2) Adjust the detergent amount.

3) Don?t pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.

A common cause of poor washing results is improper loading?dishes that block or impede the spray arm(s) or prevent the soap dispenser from opening. On the other hand, if your dishwasher has chronic problems with good washing, the problem may not be your dishwasher. A good first step is vary the amount of dishwasher detergent you're using and try switching brands.

Other possibilities: Your home?s water pressure may be too low, your water may be too hard, or the water temperature may not be hot enough.

In order for your dishwasher to fill to the appropriate level, water pressure should be from 20?120 pounds per square inch. If you suspect that your water pressure may be low, turn off all faucets or other users of water (such as washing machines and sprinklers) and then put a half-gallon jug under the kitchen faucet. Turn on the hot water full-blast. If the jug doesn?t fill within 14 seconds, your water pressure may be too low for proper dishwasher operation. Call your city water utility to discuss your options, or avoid drawing water elsewhere in the house or yard during dishwasher cycles.

The right amount of detergent to use depends on how large your load of dishes is and how hard your water is. Hardness is measured in grains of minerals?the more grains per gallon you have, the more detergent you?ll need. If your water has 12 grains or more of hardness, fill both dishwasher soap cups completely with detergent. If that doesn?t work, consider installing a water softener. (For more information, see the article Water Softener Systems.

To check water temperature, hold a meat thermometer under the hot water faucet for two minutes; if it doesn?t register a minimum of 140 degrees F., turn up the temperature dial on your hot water heater. (However, if you have a newer dishwasher that heats the water internally, it isn?t necessary to turn up your hot water heater.)

If your dishwasher has worked fine in the past but suddenly your dishes aren?t clean after the dishwasher completes all cycles, listen to the spray arm(s) spinning inside during the wash cycle. If spinning poorly, wait for the machine to cool down, remove the spray arm(s) by unscrewing the hubcap(s), lifting the arm(s) off, and then cleaning out the spray holes in the spray arm(s) with a stiff piece of wire.

To Whom It May Concern Glassware and some crockery becomes coated in "grit" after a wash cycle. I have tried using dishwasher cleaners; made sure dishwash salt reservoir is full and filled up...


The filter is probably blocked.


It is inside the base of the machine.


Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

Film on dishes and inside stainless steel panel


You live in a hard water area. Even though dishwasher tablets have salt included you may have to fill the machine with extra salt. (its the large srew top cap in the bottom of your machine, open it and fill it with dishwaher salt your machine came with a large funnel to help you do this) you will have to remove the bottom drawer to do this. next make sure you have rinse aid installed in the door of your machine, next to where you put the tablets in (don't buy cheap rinse aid it's not worth it) when its full of rinse aid the indicator will turn dark, will need both salt and rince aid about every 30 cycles.

Hi there!

I've found theSpec Sheet for you. This will tell you what your model is and what it does - Click here

I suggest you email their customer service desk for a copy of the guide to be mailed out to you, as I can't locate a PDF version.
Their link is below -

mailto:sales@championindustries.com

In the meantime, You will need dishwasher salt, detergent and rinse aid.
Salt is salt whatever price you pay for it, But dishwasher salt is made into large granules. ( As you're on a yacht it seems ironic you have to buy salt, but there you go)
This will normally be put into a screw cap in the base of the machine inside. You may have to lift out a filter tray to see it.
Fill up with around a kilo. Expect water to come out as you do this. Don't worry - that's normal.

The rinse aid is normally filled on the door panel. Expect a little funnel with numbers near it - just top it right up or to a mark, or an indicator which changes colour. No harm in overfilling - just wasteful.

For your situation, I'd recommend dishwasher tablets that are plastic wrapped - so they dont get damp.
This should go into a drawer or flap on the door, but if not, put it in the utensil rack - it will clean just as well on standard washes, just omit the first rinse if there is one, or load up in stages - rinsing untill you have a full load, then pop a tablet in there before washing.

If this has helped you, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thank you.
