Question about Danby DDW1899WP Portable Dishwasher

Open Question

Machine fills up, then spits all the water out and starts beeping and flashing the drying light.

We've had our dishwasher for about 19 months. For the last few weeks, it will sometimes stop in the middle of a cycle (after filling up), spit all the water out, beep rapidly, and flash the drying light. If we unplug it and let it sit for awhile, it usually runs okay, but I'm assuming that "fix" will not continue to work. Please help!

SOURCE: When I turn on the ac, it beeps many times the red light says on

why did it fill up? because the drain is plugged there should be a safety switch that is keeping the comp off. find and clean the drain system.

Flashing lights beeping


The dishwasher has too much water in it, this is a safety feature.
Underneath is a tray at the bottom, you need to empty this before it will start again. I've had this problem many times. My dishwasher had tiny holes in the bottom tray where the basket sits, went rusty due to not using it very often (holiday home). dried it out, applied silicon sealant to the edge where the metal sits, let it dry and the problem was solved.
I have used a sucking water vacuum to remove water, or tipped it forward. Hope this helps for maybe next time.

I have a Danby DDW1899WP portable dishwasher. I just got it yesterday. I had a lot of dirty dishes so I did 1 cycle first and it worked perfectly, I was impressed. I then started a 2nd cycle for the rest...


I realize the above question is almost 4 years old, but I am sure others are still having this problem. My Danby was behaving the same way: drying cycle light would flash like it was having a myocardial infarction, and the cycle would stop. I could only get the light to stop flashing by turning the unit off. What you didn\'t say above is what happens then: everything most likely returns to normal-- or at least, so it seems. I have now had this happen to me two times in a row with my Danby 1899WP. Each time the machine has started up just fine, drains water out, loads in fresh water, and begins the wash cycle, only to freeze up with that damn flashing red light on the dry cycle and the dishes not clean. I have owned it for about two months, and so far this is my only complaint. I am running it again right now, for the third time, and we shall see what that light does now.... Will report back afterward!

QuitePower1 Dishwasher won't wash! Fills/empties, but no spray.


Hi Rockwallcond.
Follow the following steps.

Step 1
Wait approximately 90 seconds for the light to turn off if the "Start/Reset" indicator light flashes. Press the "Start/Reset" button to restart the wash cycle.
Step 2
Close the dishwasher door and move the latch to the locked position if you hear a beep once every 30 seconds when the dishwasher should be operating. The dishwasher will not operate if the door is open.
Step 3
Turn on the hot water faucet and feel the water to check if it is hot. Wait for the water to warm up before running the dishwasher if the water is not hot. Check that you have proper water pressure and wait for the pressure to return to normal if it is low. Your dishes may not come out clean if the water is not the correct temperature or if you have low water pressure.
Step 4
Move the dishes on the racks so that they do not block the detergent dispenser or washer arms on the bottom of the machine. The dishes will not come out clean if they block the detergent dispenser or the washer arms.
Step 5
Load the proper amount of detergent in the dishwasher if you find spots or film form on your glasses. If you have hard water, use a rinsing product such as Jet-Dry in the dishwasher to clean the spots or film. If the problem persists, wash smaller loads of dishes.
Step 6
Add only automatic dishwasher detergent to the dishwasher if you find excessive suds in the tub after running a cycle. Measure out the proper amount of detergent.
Step 7
Press the "Heated Dry," "Hot Start," "Hot Wash" and "Added Heat" buttons, if you find that your dishes are not fully dry after a wash cycle completes.
Step 8
Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on the dishwasher for approximately three seconds if the control pad does not respond to button presses. This is the child lock that prevents unwanted use of the dishwasher.

An alternative: Reboot your control • Turn off power to the dishwasher (circuit breaker or wall switch) for
30 seconds; then turn back on.

I have a cda mx194 dishwasher 1st three lights are flashing and it is beeping it wont start the cycle


MX194 Dishwasher.

Switch off and unplug before doing anything. .

First three lights are flashing on top and it will not stop making stupid noises.

Remove plastic panels at front of machine under door, see if there is water inside.

If there is ... something is leaking. If it is a slow leak - solution is to dry up excess water in tray with paper towels or whatever comes to hand. You will need to find the leak somehow - salt container is usual suspect.

There is a microswitch attached to a float on the left hand side inside a white plastic cover. Water at the base of this activates the switch and disables machine. Mine has not leaked since trying this fix and machine is running well 2 months down the line. Better 10 minutes with paper towels than 2 hours of expensive plumbers.

Dishwasher problem


My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
Thankyou

Overfill protection tripping


Is there water in the drip pan? My asko developed a leaky inlet solenoid, which would fill the drip pan eventually causing a failure. If the water evaporated, the washer would run. Normally, there should be no water in the drip pan.
