    When I start the dishwasher all the lights come on but the motor just hums. I checked that the door was closed properly closed and the water temperature meets manufacturers recommendations.

Just like a washing machine..your dishwasher uses an electrically operated valve ( inlet valve) to allow water to flow into it.. If that doesn't get switched on by the control system or is either clogged or defective.. you will not get water inside the dishwasher.. Normally, the dishwasher will not allow water into it if the door interlock is not made ( meaning the door is closed properly.. but you could have a bad interlock switch).. Hope thes ideas help you get it going.. ( I assume you have checked that youhave water pressure to the dishwasher before you posted your question)..if not.. verify you have water pressure coming into the DW... Hope this helps..

Thank you for your post, Sheri!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire dishwasher is giving you longer time cycle then what you select. Inside of your dishwasher there is a soil sensor, when the water comes into your dishwasher the sensor picks up on the amount of dirt inside of the tub and will adjust the time if need be. You may need to perform a reset on your dishwasher and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue you may need to replace that sensor or you could have a short within your control panel and that may need replacement. You may want to contact a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Hello

Ensure the Frigidaire dishwashing machine is fully connected to a power supply. Shut the dishwasher door firmly and select a wash cycle. Press "Start" to begin. Check that the "delay start" option was not selected.

  • 2 Verify that dishwashing detergent is placed in the dispenser and choose a longer washing cycle for heavily soiled items. Do not overload the dishwasher, as this may prevent proper cleaning.
  • 3 Check the household water pressure, which should be between 20 and 120 PSI (pounds per square inch). A water pressure gauge can be obtained at most home repair stores or hardware stores.
  • 4 Turn on the hot water at the sink closest to the dishwasher prior to starting the dishwasher to raise the water temperature inside the dishwasher. Check the hot water temperature, which should be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit for proper cleaning.
  • 5 Check the spray arms in the dishwasher and move dishes that may be blocking the water spray or preventing the spray arms from rotating properly.

    Clean light blinks seven times and will not start on any cycle.


    The problem you are having is that the dishwasher is sensing that the water is not getting hot enough to finsh out the cycle. The first thing you need to do is get the dishwasher into diagnostic test mode, you can do this by pressing: normal wash then heated dry, 4 times. After in diagnostic mode you can exit out by pressing cancel/drain. This will get rid of the blinking clean light and the washer can be operated in any cycle now. To prevent this light from coming back on, you can do one of two things. First you can just try running Hot water at the faucet before each time you use the dishwasher. Or, you can replace the thermistor/sensor that senses the water temperature. You can purchase this part at this link http://www.repairclinic.com/Sensor-Or-Thermistor-Parts?s=t-DU1055XTS-%3d%3dc61

    My Bosch dishwasher is only 2 yrs old and for the following two nights does not want to pump out the water. If I drain it, it sometimes starts the cycle and sometimes not?


    If no warning lights show up, then it is a matter of finding if the outlet is blocked somewhere. I am assuming the fact you can drain it manually means the pump is ok. Perhaps some sensor which is covered in muck.

    I would start by cleaning the filters at the base and then running the unit with a dishwasher cleaning kit (without dishes in it). Finish cleaning kit is quite good and the instructions are on the pack.

    By the way these units normally have a 2 to 3 year warranty on some parts. I am assuming you have the proof of purchase so that you can call the Bosch support guys.

    Du1100xtpq7 has had the touch pad replaced along with the circuit board that goes behind it and yet it just keeps repeating the wash cycle and goes for hours


    i would guess that you are having a problem with the optical sensor inside the pump housing. it is suppose to sense when the water is clean or dirty and allow the unit to continue washing or advance to the next cycle.
    i have seen these test good but be just out of calibration enough to cause long run times.
    you can try to change it yourself or have the service company try that instead of a new board and panel.

    Cycle stops, won't drain


    This is either a bad timer or a bad heat sensor. On most cycles that call for the water to be heated it will pause the timer and continue washing/heating until the sensor is satisfied the water is hot enough. Try selecting a quick, delicate, or china cycle without heated rinse or dry. If it works this way the timer is fine but the sensor is bad. Sometimes cold water to the machine will cause this problem because the machine is not capable of totallly heating cold water. It is only designed to boost the temp. Make sure you run hot water at the sink before you start the machine.

    My bosch exxcel dishwasher will not drain after wash cycle


    That is because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.

    You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.
