Washer does not respond to control


Hello Walt;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Maytag makes a good unit. Please give me more information. Is it a clothes washer or a dish washer?

Please provide the model number so I can see what you have.
These numbers are on the machines, usually after you open the door you will see a name plate.

1.) Do you have power? Does the control panel light up?

2.) There are several reasons your unit may not respond to the control.
a.) A faulty door lock switch will lock out your control.
b.) Both clothes and dish washers have thermal fuses. These too will lock out your control.

Once again send me your model number and more detail & I will help you.

L.G CL CODE/ERROR Good Day, Today I will explain to you how to remove the...


L.G CL CODE/ERROR <br /><br />Good Day,<br /><br />Today I will explain to you how to remove the annoying CL code/error on all L.G Dishwashers & Washing Machines.<br /><br />Firstly let me explain let me state that this code is not in fact, an error code. It is actually there to tell you or warn you, that Child Lock has been activated. This feature was added because small children usually fiddle with controls on washing machines & dish washing machines. It is an easy way to lock in an operation and then be assured that it cannot be changed afterwards.<br /><br />The process usually involves you entering a method of washing (like pre-wash, extra dry, quick wash, economy wash etc), then activating child lock - and then have peace of mind that no wandering fingers will tamper with your settings...<br /><br />How to deactivate/activate Child Lock:<br /><br />Here are some examples of various L.G washer Front Panels:<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_23.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_24.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_25.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_26.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_27.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_28.JPG" /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_29.JPG" /><br /><br /><br />All you need to do is press these two buttons connected via a small child face icon. On certain dishwashers you would need to do this while the door is open.<br /><br /><img src="jedemeyer1_30.jpg" /><br /><br />That's it! All you need to do.<br /><br />I hope this Tip has helped you.<br /><br />Kind Regards<br />JEDEMEYER1<br /><br />* If this Tip helped you in any way, please rate it<br /><br />

Dishwasher not drying dished with any heat source. Dishes washed in cold water.


Most dishwashers are plumbed to the hot side of the hot water side of the faucet. This should provide hot water for washing the dishes. Perhaps this dishwasher was plumbed to the cold water side by mistake.

Most dishwashers have a heating coil most of the way around under the bottom sliding/rolling dish rack. The heating coil may not be working, which would be consistent with the dishes not drying at the end of the cycle. Possible causes include incorrect setting selected on control console (push buttons) or timer, heating coil disconnected from electrical source at one end or both ends, faulty control circuit inside the timer, faulty wiring between the timer/control circuit and the heating coil, burned or pitted contacts in the control circuit.

Dryer is running, but rotating very slowly. it generates heat, but makes a very loud noise. it's a GE Adora Dryer


Instructions

1. Wait approximately 90 seconds for the light to turn off if the "Start/Reset" indicator light flashes. Press the "Start/Reset" button to restart the wash cycle.
2. Close the dishwasher door and move the latch to the locked position if you hear a beep once every 30 seconds when the dishwasher should be operating. The dishwasher will not operate if the door is open.
3. Turn on the hot water faucet and feel the water to check if it is hot. Wait for the water to warm up before running the dishwasher if the water is not hot. Check that you have proper water pressure and wait for the pressure to return to normal if it is low. Your dishes may not come out clean if the water is not the correct temperature or if you have low water pressure.
4. Move the dishes on the racks so that they do not block the detergent dispenser or washer arms on the bottom of the machine. The dishes will not come out clean if they block the detergent dispenser or the washer arms.
5. Load the proper amount of detergent in the dishwasher if you find spots or film form on your glasses. If you have hard water, use a rinsing product such as Jet-Dry in the dishwasher to clean the spots or film. If the problem persists, wash smaller loads of dishes.
6. Add only automatic dishwasher detergent to the dishwasher if you find excessive suds in the tub after running a cycle. Measure out the proper amount of detergent.
7. Press the "Heated Dry," "Hot Start," "Hot Wash" and "Added Heat" buttons, if you find that your dishes are not fully dry after a wash cycle completes.
8. Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on the dishwasher for approximately three seconds if the control pad does not respond to button presses. This is the child lock that prevents unwanted use of the dishwasher.

Dishwasher won't turn on, lock light comes on when I try to start


my husband found the solution on line when he googled the problem. He read that the drain could have been blocked, or it said press the drain button. That did the trick, and now I have clean dishes! He didn't have to pay anyone to solve the problem which was nice.

My child safety lock is on my dish washer how do I get it off


For my old GE washer, there was a button with a lock icon. To lock/unlock it, you had to hold that button down for 10 seconds.

Hope this helps!

There is a green light on with padlock next to it


Try holding the "heated dry" button for 3-4 seconds. It may be that the "child-proof" lock is on.
