Hi, Make sure you have power to the water solenoid valve. You should hear it click/energize when you turn the dial or push the fill button to start the fill cycle. Check this. If there is power, and it does energize, kill power, shut the water off, and take the water line loose and off at the solenoid. There is a screen there to catch water sediment, check to see if it is plugged or clean. Get back to me after you have done these things and let me know where you stand.If I solved your problem, please be kind when rating me as being helpful as I know you will. Keep me posted if you need more help. If you hear no click when you touch it to feel if it is energized and you feel nothing, you need to check across the 2 terminals with the wires on, and pulled back for 120 volts. If you have power, you will need to replace the solenoid valve. You will need to get one at a appliance parts house.

The two lights are not an error code, but they are telling that the machine is in failure mode.

The error code is retrieved performing a water/service test.

The water/service test is a special function initiated from the power failure mode or idle mode.

While in power failure or idlemode - simultaneously press the DRY/AIR DRY and START/CANCEL pads for 3 seconds.

The dishwasher will then step through the test cycle per the chart.
Pushing the START/CANCEL pad will advance the dishwasher to the next step.

Here table to understand fault from the diagnostic cycle:


Another way two proceed is testing components that can cause the faults.

Components to be tested are inlet valve, door lock, two pressure switches, floater switch, pump, thermostat and timer board.

That will also tell you what the problem is.

Please do not forget to leave feedback.

Hello, W/D here.

The easiest way to get your DW back up and running is to buy a heavy duty plug that is designed as a replacement plug. You can purchase this type of plug at Lowe's/similer. Basically, you cut your old plug end off, and strip the sheathing back. Then you strip some of the insulation from each wire and the wires then screw to terminals in the plug. It will have you up and running quickly.

Best regards, --W/D--

The heater probably isn't coming on, making it so the detergent can't dissolve completely or clean very well.

To test this, pause the unit about 10 minutes into the wash cycle (hit the stop/start button) and feel the water in the bottom. It should be hot, not lukewarm.

Also, if the heater isn't working, you won't see as much steam come out when you open the door at the end of the cycle.

Until you get it fixed, try using the pots/pans cycle (I use it for every load with this machine).

Are you blowing a fuse or throwing a breaker? Either way there is a chance that no outlet you have chosen to test with yet is on a circuit with sufficient amperage-I had this with a microwave I recently had installed. If you have the manual, check for requirements regarding amperage. You then need to be sure you are using an outlet with amperage comparable to the requirements-this is on your fuse or breaker. If your requirement is, say, 20 amps, a 15-amp or less breaker or fuse is going to fail. I had to go to a 'clean' circuit from my garage with nothing on it to find out I did not have enough amps in my circuit. My solution was a dedicated breaker. Another option is to use my second option (which I did not need), to plug it into a gas generator with sufficient wattage/amperage. This ensures nothing else is on the circuit.

Failing all that, it could be the power supply for the washer, a circuit board issue, etc. Don't mess around if you don't understand electricity, though-it's not worth frying yourself.

Finally, if it worked ok before and this has just begun to happen, I'd tend to think it's an issue with the washer itself. Hope this helps.

Not sure of the background on your fault, but this may help:
I have an HDW202. I accidentally opened the door while it was running - a no-no, but there is no lock preventing opening the door while it is running - not idiot-proof at all, disappointing, really. Anyway, closed the door, the washer kept running, then water started to leak out the front door. I quickly turned it off, mopped up the water, and turned it back on. It pumped out the remaining water visible in the bottom, then started flashing lights and doing 10 beeps in a row, pausing for a minute, 10 beeps in a row again, etc. - it was stuck in this cycle. I tilted the unit forward, backwards, and side to side, while turning it on and off periodically to check for results. More water came out of the unit, and it started to behave normally while tilted, but not level. Eventually, after more tilting, it returned to normal behaviour when level. It seems it did not pump all of the water out initially, and this was causing it to malfunction until all of the residual water inside had drained onto the floor from tilting the unit.

If you can hear a humming sounf it will be the pump motor not working. If you can get to the back of the pump try and turn it by hand with the power on. If it then starts it is the motor start capacitor

I tilted mine backwards with it running and beeping and it stopped beeping shortly...It made a mess on the floor of course but I put it down and lights were still flashing but no more beeping. Thought I would try tipping it forward while it was running and the lights went off and the beeping never started again. Its working fine now??

You have to buy an adapter for the faucet that allows the hose to hook up. You an get it at any hardware store. It's easier to get a dishwasher installation kit and just hook it up permanently.

Haier HDP18PA... | Answered on Dec 03, 2008

yes, we got the correct number and ordered the part... thanks

Haier HDP18PA... | Answered on Nov 02, 2008

Tilt the machine 45-0 degrees and let it drain any excess water.. It also beeps when the leds flash also right? Drain the water and it will start right back up.
