Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

We have a Haier DW12-PFE2-U dishwasher thats 2 years old. The cycle stopped yesterday leaving an amount of water in the bottom and all of the program lights are illuminated with a recurring beeping sound happening. It says in the booklet that the drain hose is too high or bended. But its not. The display does show the time when a cycle is selcted but nothing happens. The dishwasher turns on and off normally. Can this problem be rectified? thanks!

Refer userr guide on page 21. It reads...

When all the programme indicators " J" blink.

Have you checked whether:
the door is closed properly.

The door switch could be the problem or the door seal is pushing the door open. May need replacement.

Our 3 week old Haier DW12-TFE2 Series Dishwasher has stopped working, the water remains inside from the prievious wash. We have found that by emptying the water manually that it will run a was cycle, but...


Kink in the line or possible obstruction in the discharge, very bad to leave stagment water in your dishwasher you can get contaminents that way, I suggest from experience and to be safe to use extra hot water and bleach a tablespoon or so, and flush thru there, also check the hoses make sure they are not blocked and thewre is an air gap, and the height of the discharge is proper. After flushing get a box of baking soda, and some distilled vinegar and under neath your sink you will see the discharge or p trap, either place that in there thru the sink drain or put in the dishwasher with no dishes of course and allow the vinegar and baking soda enough to just reach the drain turn off unit and let the vinegar bomb do its thing, this also works for your laundry drain too, always good to flush them every now and again, if you start getting water backing up in your tub, you need a pump of your septic tank, or a thaw, or if on city water and sewer, you have blockage, hope this helps, good luck

Flashing but nothing happening


A-- If you hear the water filling for 3 minutes before the lights flash, 2 things could be happening:
a.1) water never reached the proper fill/run level so the computer prevents the heater from starting and alerts the user. There should be a code list in the troubleshooting section of the user manual describing the blinking lights and what they mean.
Solution- verify by sound if water flows at the same rate as the sink tap, if not then shut off the water and check the inside the connection hose for debris against the screen inside the hose end or insid ethe machine end where there is a intake valve. The debris keeps sediment out so it works but there's no auto cleaner for the screen.
a.2) Otherwise the heater itself is faulty meaning it does not conduct an electrical path or maybe overheating (could be dry) and the computer senses the wrong temperature either too high or too low.
Solution- A service call to determine the reason why; heater continuity, water valve, heater relay, hi-temp fuse, etc.

B-- Now, if you do NOT hear water filling for those first 3 minutes, 3 things could be happening;
b.1) House water supply is turned off.
b.2) hose is clogged (see solution a.1 above)
b.3) Drain pump inside dishwasher was clogged during the last run and old water didn't drain out (maybe some water is evident in the tub bottom).
Solution- Most dishwashers start each wash cycle with 30 second drain pump running to make sure the tub is completely emptied so the next fill cycle can't overfill. This ensures that if the user finds a 3 liter pot that flipped over during the last wash and if they dump that full pot of water into the unit to make it lighter, that the water will get drained before the new water enters the tub.
If the drain pump is clogged reset the power and restart the wash cycle. Note how much water is in the tub and see if it goes down any during those 30 seconds by opening the door afterwards. Find the clog either a bone or plastic bag or some small pice of a childs toy is stuck in the drain pump or the other end is clogged maybe by grease or bones if you have a sink disposal unit. The things they grind up drop into the drain 1" inch above the hole for the dishwasher drain tube.
NOTE: There is also an overfill [float] switch if the water inlet valve gets stuck open and the water keeps filling, the drain pump is switched on until someone comes and shuts off the water supply. When the tub drains the float drops and the drainpump stops. This will also make lights blink so check the user manual for codes or call the factory service reps [1-877-337-3639].
Either way, there should be instructions to reset the machine for restart. If it doesn't reset you need someone to fix the control that tripped the unit, maybe a safety fuse or a broken piece of the puzzle.

Our Haier HDC1804TW counter-top dishwasher does not complete the washing cycle. It stops after 90 minutes which should be 115 minutes for heavy washing according to the manual. The washing light is...


Since mine does the very same thing, it's my guess that is the sterilising cycle as by this point it has already washed, done a short fill to remove any remaining detergent, and two rinses. I'm also assuming the second short fill is just to cover the heating element and/or to to generate an amount of steam having being heated by the element (I'm basing that assumption on the heat of the dishes at the end of end of the cycle and the heat of the water when it drains)

DW12-PFE2-U lights up but will not start program


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check out the door switch - The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it. Your switch also may be locked in place by a locking clip. If this is the case there should be a button or a lever that you can press or pull, which will release the switch and it can simply be removed. Please post comments for further help or information........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Dishwasher is less than a year old. Once in a while it will stop about 10 minutes into the cycle, then the display lights will blink. Sometimes it will stop and the lights wont blink so we will come back...


I would most likely guess a faulty latch....it will cancel the cycle, thinking that the door has opened, and the lights will flash. After a certain amount of time, it might "time out" and reset and the lights would stop flashing. Unfortunately it's a bit of a guess, but the other option would be a bad control board.

DIshwasher drain clogged Haier dishwasher model DW12-PFE2-E


Remove the drain hose from the sink drain assembly and force air into the hose--The clog should spit out into the washer cabinet. Make sure the drain hose doesn't have any kinks or sharp bends. Hope this helps.

I have a DW12-PFE2-2 the dishwasher tablet does not dissolve,it is still in the dishwasher detergent dispenser after wash has finished?


HI Accumulated detergent from prior washings can cause problems with the soap dispenser. Buildup can get into the soap dispenser and interfere with the spring that triggers the flip-out tray, or it can slow down the pivot action of the tray. If the dispenser is not opening, first make sure you aren't loading the machine so dishes or pots and pans are touching the dispenser, and that dish racks aren't blocking the dispenser. Also check to make sure the dispenser tray isn't cracked. If leftover detergent in the tray is almost liquid, rather than just damp, the tray may be damaged.
If you can't solve the problem easily, replace the entire dispenser unit. This is usually easier than trying to disassemble it and replace separate parts. Use a new dispenser made for the dishwasher. The screws holding the dispenser in place may be on the front of the unit, or you may have to remove the front door panel to get to the screws and make the replacement. Remove the old dispenser and secure the new one, connecting it in the same way the old unit was attached.
