Thanks to hijoloo for pointing me in the right direction. The offending part is the diverter valve, a paddle inside blocks one of two outlets in turn actuated by a micro switch, a motor and reduction gears. Check switch for continuity with multimeter (ohms) then check motor and gears turn freely by hand. My problem was a stiff paddle due to limescale. Soak in boiling water to free off then oil cog (externally) and rebuild.
turn the washer on its side and open up the bottom black plastic plate, than disconnect the two black hoses from the white pumphouse in the middle of the washer. disconnect the connector and open carefully the housing by removing two screws and the motor. check the switch and clean the white housing. Check also if there is nothing inside the rotorhouse. after this build every thing back and hope that its running. it worked for me. succes!

Where is the distributary valve?


that is a very good question
i cant find a "distributary valve" for sale

lots of water inlet valves hot and cold single units


almost every dishwasher user manual and has code e8 mentioned and faulty distributary valve

why the fault
.If the distributary valve have worked for 150
seconds, and could not reach right
position during wash cycle,after the cycle is finished, the dishwasher will shut off all
loads, the alarm buzzer will ring for 30 seconds and the window will display "E8" at rate
of 1Hz in 30 seconds, and then display "E8" , drain water for 2 minutes meanwhile

Error code E8 appears mid wash, heater is working ok, machine has been hooked up to the hot water instead of cold. I have since directed cold water through water valve.


hot water form the house takes less power to bring up to machine temperature so by hooking it to cold water will increase the power consumption
call a service center and get the explanation for the error codes and that will explain what is faulty
you didn't mention the make and model of the unit and every error code appears different
for example in a fulgor milano machine code 8 is failure of orientation of distributary valve ===causes open circuit or break of distributary valve
for hoover nextra e8 is dishwasher has failed to heat with water in a reasonable time or has failed to detect the water heating element===causes check water heating element/wiring--check wiring to main control module
go google and type in-- dishwashing machine error code 8-- and see if there is any site for your machine to get the error code and causes
other than that get in a service technician for a correct diagnosis and fix

Was awakened in the middle of the night by the F&P dish drawers (top drawer) playing the "Star-Spangled Banner" alternately with "Brahms Lulliby", lights flashing, lots of beeping! .....the lights...


Not funny Cindy - Any chance you can access the power breaker in the panel for the dishwasher? Sometimes with even short power bumps or outages, electronic controls get out of whack - Leave the breaker off for a minute and then turn it back on - As for the water level, I would question if the hookup was done entirely correctly - The idea is for the drain to connect to the most clear point of the sink drain - if you drain came with a pre-made Dishwasher drain connection, did the installer make sure that the plug was fully removed before connecting - Even in my mobile dishwasher I might get an inch of water, but not what you are experiencing - Good Luck

Light is on for heat dry but won't allow me to run a cyle or turn on


Hi




Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
