Sounds like the thermostat is not working
These are normally controlled by a 'bi-metal' sensor -very very cheap.

If you can locate this sensor - you will probably find that you can depress it by hand, and it SHOULD reset itself...
If it does not - then theres your problem - this will cost you very little to replace (DO NOT PAY FOR AN ENGINEER UNLESS YOU REALLY HAVE TO)

Whirlpool dishwasher beeping


Make sure all hoses are clear, and filters are clean. If they are all ok restart but use different temperature. Still not working, sounds like thermostat may have problem. Call service agent.

TAKES A LONG TIME,


Takes a long time to what? If the entire cycle seems to take forever, one suggestion is to make sure your hot water heater is turned up. Most dishwashers requires the water to be a minimum of 120 degrees before the timer will begin. If you are using a Sani-Wash cycle, then the water need to heat up to 165 degrees. The heater can only heat the water 1 degree per minute, so if the water coming in to the dishwasher is only 100 degrees, it will take an additional 65 minutes before it will even start the cycle. You can also make sure you get the water at the sink hot before you start the dishwasher, this will ensure the hottest water is going in (only fills for 90 seconds).

When dishwasher runs it is continuous for about 3 hours Bosch clasixx free standing


It is possibly the water heater, basically if you run a normal wash at 65 degrees and the heater has failed, the d/w stat is waiting for the water temp to reach the desired temp. It will continue to wash, waiting for this to happen and eventually it will give up the ghost and time out, aborting the cyle.
The instantaneous water on this model is around £100 and too be honest is best fitted by an expert, so if this is the problem you'll be looking at a reasonable repair bill.
If you decide on a repair and you are in the UK, contact BSH Home Appliances who are the repair section of Bosch as they offer a one off payment on your first call out (even though they know there is definately a fault) this covers the repair cost for the first visit and then covers the complete machine for 12 months. You can pay in instalments for 10 months which will take the stick out a touch (this is called repair +).
Really hope this helps, good luck.

Hello,
You seem to have a blockage,have you checked the filters lately.Also check the drain hose and the pipe that the drain hose goes into,if they are clear then the blockage is down in the bottom of the dishwasher in the pipes or the drain pump.

Hope this helps.

Lg dishwasher never heats water


The LG 7811 dishwasher is supposed to even support a cold water (vs. hot water) connection. Then it will heat the water up to 120 degrees upon each fill cycle. This is not optimal and it adds much time to the already long full cycle. When you run the hot water at the kitchen sink until it is hot and then kick off the cycle, is the water hot at the beginning? It should be 120 degrees minimum and well under 140 degrees maximum.
Do you get any error codes on the display? Troubleshooting is possible, but recommend you contact LG service at the number in the user guide asap. Press for fast, free resolution to this problem. Please reply when you have gotten this fixed, explaining what fixed this nice, quiet dishwasher. Good Luck!
PS: When you get it running, do not use ultra-cheap dishwasher soap. Recommend Electrosol powder or cascade. Never use gel or tablets on this water conserving dishwasher.

It is very common that high eficiency, low water using dishwashers take longer to finish all cycles. The best way to "hurry" the washing is to make sure that the water heater is providing hot water of at least 120 degrees. But no hotter then 140 degrees.
If the dishwasher runs even longer, check to see is the dishwasher is actually connected to the cold water line. This dishwasher can be run from cold water but the water heating phase in the cycles will add much time ti the entire cycle.

This unit has a sensor that detects the detects the water clarity towards the end of the wash cycle. Rinsing the dishes may speed the load a little, but encourage not to go crazy on the rinsing because the dishwasher actually counts on the food particles to help clean the dishes.
Also, note that the final (third) blinking light means drying. You can simply open the door anytime after the final draining and power off the dishwasher, allowing the hot dishes to air dry.
Hope this helps. Please resply with your findings. Thanks!
