LIGHTS FLASHING ON THE PANEL

There are lights flashing on the panel and the cycle has not finished. I saw one of your other posts that said to push high temp scrub--air dry--high temp scrub-- air dry or sani rinse---air dry---sani rinse---air dry. I tried both since the first one did nothing. I started the dishwasher early this afternoon and after about an hour I noticed the lights were blinking. at that time I opened the door and shut it again several hours later the cycle started again and now has stopped with the normal wash, high temp scrub, sani rinse and drying buttons flashing. HELP!!

If the reset procedure (those buttons you pressed) didn't work, it's because the machine is still reading a fault. It could be a few things... water temperature too low (indicating a bad heating element), partial blockage of the drainage hose, or something preventing the spray arm from spinning. If letting it sit for a while allows it to start again, I suggest you do that. It will stop again and the lights will start blinking. When it does, open it up immediately and see how much standing water there is. If there is a lot, look for a blockage in the drainage hose. That's the most likely, I think, because it makes sense that it would work again once the water slowly drained. If there isn't much water, then see if the water that is there is hot. If it's not, then it's the heating element. Checking for movement of the sprayer arm is a bit trickier, as it won't be moving while the thing is open. Though, if the first two are not the problem, there's a good chance that is. Or, of course, it could be a malfunctioning control panel giving false errors. There's really no way to test for that, unfortunately - but I don't think it's acting like that is the problem.

Behringer B115 flashing lights on control panel

If the flashing lights on the control panel of your Behringer B115 persist after trying the basic steps, it could be indicative of a more technical issue. Here are a few additional steps you can take:
  1. Check the amplifier: The flashing lights on the control panel could be an indication that the amplifier is malfunctioning. You can try checking the amplifier by connecting the speaker to a different amplifier and seeing if the issue persists.
  2. Check the capacitors: Faulty capacitors can cause flashing lights on the control panel. You can try visually inspecting the capacitors on the circuit board for signs of bulging or leaking. If you find any faulty capacitors, they will need to be replaced.
  3. Check the power supply: The flashing lights could be a result of a power supply issue. You can try testing the power supply with a multimeter to see if it is functioning properly. If the power supply is faulty, it will need to be replaced.
  4. Check the circuit board: It is possible that there is a problem with the circuit board. You can try visually inspecting the circuit board for any signs of damage or loose connections.

My FINLUX C13 reset button keeps flashing and cycle stops wat could be wrong and can I fix it myself, thank u

WHY IS DRYER TURNING OFF AND 4 LIGHTS ON PANEL FLASH

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire dryer, model# FEQ1442ES, runs for about 10 minutes then turns off. I also see, that when it turns off, all the lights on the front panel are flashing. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Electrolux dishwasher not completing wash cycle and all lights flashing on door control panel and the 'wash pump' error light behind the lower kick space panel was flashing.

Good Morning friend, thanks for your post!

After researching the issue you are having with your Electrolux dishwasher it is possible that resetting your appliance may help. I would disconnect power from your dishwasher by unplugging it or flipping the household breaker for roughly ten minutes. If this does not resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your dishwasher. -T

Check Fault Codes If the display lights are flashing and there is an error code in the display window, check the Error Codes guide on our website to determine which component has failed or is failing

Touchpad If the display lights are flickering for no reason, the touchpad might need to be replaced. Sometimes when the touchpad is defective the display lights are flashing randomly.

Touchpad and Control Panel If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.

Heating Element Assembly If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Heating Element If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element might have burned out. The heating element heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Drain Pump If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective YOU'LL need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable.

Kenmore He4t- pushed cancel to add at start of load, now nothing but flashing lights

The manufacturer recommends unplugging the washer for at least 30 minutes to reset the computer. Sometimes this is all that is required to "cure" momentary "glitches". If this does not fix your problem, please post back and let me know. Hope this helps you.
