BAUMATIC BFD47SS dishwasher won't start

My dishwasher lights up fine, meaninig you can select all the programs you want. Once a program is selected it makes the good priming noises etc but never actually starts pumping water into the washer itself. I know it is getting water and it does appear to do it on all settings, i.e. on rinse it still doesn't start. Has anyone got any ideas what could be up???

My dishwasher stopped in the middle of cycle due to circuit break. Now the dishwasher light is on, but the programme lights not on and there is water in the filter. The machine however is not working.

Sounds like the water inlet solenoid valve is not opening. Not easy to get at to test, but if water is available at the hose inlet connection as you say there isn't anything else stopping water entering the wash cabinet.

Shouldn't be a lengthy repair - so I'd recommend getting a quote.

I have a SHU5305us/u12 and my front door lettering got erase. anyone have a picture or a manual that tells me what each button means.

Cycle Interruption

As a safety feature the dishwasher will automatically turn itself off whenever the door is opened. However, if the door is opened quickly while in a wash or rinse cycle some water may splash out of the dishwasher. For this reason it is recommended that the machine always be switched off before opening the door.

To Interrupt a Cycle

1. Press the on/off button to stop operation.

2. Wait at least 10 seconds (or until the water noises stop) before opening the door.

To Resume a Cycle

1. SHU/SHI models, close the door and press the on/off button.

2. SHV models, push the on/off button and close the door.

Changing a Cycle

For Bosch dishwasher models SHI 6800 and 4320, SHU 5300, 5310 and 6800 press the program button of the desired cycle TWICE. For all other Bosch dishwasher models, press the program button of the desired cycle ONCE. The chosen cycle button (or the light above it) becomes illuminated, showing that it has been selected.

* SHU 3030 and SHU 3130 models do not have program lights.

Cancelling a Cycle

Each control panel shows which buttons to simultaneously push to cancel a cycle. Refer to your dishwasher to find the cancel drain buttons on your particular model.

1. Press the indicated buttons at the same time and hold for approximately 3 seconds.

2. When the drain pump noises stop and the LED display or clean light indicate that the end of the cycle has been reached, the dish

washer is reset.

3. Press the on/off button to turn the dishwasher off.

4. The dishwasher is now ready to run a selected cycle. Add more detergent if necessary.

I was playing fate and the screen wentblack and when i tried to restart it told me it was already running and to switch or close

Since you didn't mention the Operating System installed on your computer, I will assume you are running Microsoft Windows. First let's terminate the running program, after that I'll explain and will give some tips on how to avoid this to happen again.

Right-Click the "TaskBar", select "Task Manager" then, click "Processes" tab, again select "Show Processes from all users" and locate "Fate-wildgames.exe" or "Fate-....." something similar starting with fate, right-click the "Fate......." and select "End Process Tree", confirm the warning by clicking "yes", once it's done, check the processes lists once again and make sure no more Fate... is running. If so terminate the same by right-clicking and select "End Process Tree", but I hope there's no more...

Close the Task Manager and try opening the Fate game again, it should work fine. To avoid this, you need to update the graphics card drivers, run minimum numbers of programs during the play, etc...etc.. you'll see the improvement. Upgrading the Ram may also improve, but I can't guarantee, if in case you have had enough Ram installed on your machine. Uninstall unnecessary programs from your computer, etc..etc... and lot more..

If the problem still persists, restart your computer, and try again. I will assist you, if you need further help.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Rotary switch selection of washing program.Whichever one selected - machine sounds to start up, whether or not the start button is pressed. However no sound of washing kicks in as was usual and eventually...

Found a local man on the internet, who popped in and leant the machine forward then backwards and then flushed out the system, explaining that the program cycle had gone awry and there was water where there should have been air and so microswitches had not triggered in the right sequence. All fine now.

The program light goes off and the BF162 doesn't start...

When you keep the button pressed for a few seconds the lights go off, this resets the dishwasher. Then press the p button again to the program you want 1st light is heavy soil 2nd light is normal soil, 3rd light is eco wash, 4th light is rinse. At the end of the cycle the program light you have selected will flash.

Avaya 18D unable to make outgoing calls

Sounds like you changed your line selection. Changing line selection on a Partner system is done on either ext 10 or 11.
At one of those ext's press the feature key and "00"
Next press the left hand intercom twice
The display should say system programming

Press the right hand intercom once. The display should say Centralized Programming.

Enter in the extension number that you want to program.

enter **
press the lit line in the order you want the to be used, i.e. line 2 then line 3 then line 4 etc.
enter ** when finished with line selection
Press feature "00" to logout
Hope that helps
