    Same here.... Opened up the drain pump ...all ok, impeller turns and no sign of damage. Took a plumbers drain probe ( long flexible metal spring thing) and pushed it up the drain pipe until it reached the exit port of the drain pump ( just thought there might be a fat blockage in the drain pipe.... Still no go. Just so dam frustrating taht there are no clues from the program.... just reports that the safety switch is active... but of course I cheked the flood safety switch... even cheked each wire from the switch to the processor board. Why is it so difficult to fault find these machines??????

My smeg Module DF 612 SDX7 dishwasher tripped the circuit last night early into its cycle. We could smell burning coming from the dishwasher. Any ideas and what we can do to fix it?

If you can get it to operate for a few seconds, that will at least tell whether the motor is still good and turns freely. Otherwise it sounds like board may have failed.

Good luck!

Zanussi dishwasher beeps once and end of cycle light flashes

Most likely your dishwasher finds fault.

Appliances without a display will show the alarms by a number of flashes of the LED "end of cycle".

For example: one flash = i10, two flashes = i20
..........and so on

So, count how many times LED "end of cycle" flashes and you will know the error code.

Shortly after cycle starts, a whirring sound starts, is this a problem with the motor?

with LG dishwashers: after starting, 1st, DW pumps out any remaining water, 2nd, DW fill fresh water, 3rd, main wash motor starts, which is normally a whirring sound. (If you here grinding or rattling, then you have a problem.)

You have a timer relay issue ,probable need a new board for it ,a cheap fix would be to time it and see how long it take to run full cycle and put a regulaer outlet timer on it or a alarm off your stove or what ever,save a couple of bucks

GE Profile PDW7880G00SS Dishwasher will not Start

Re: My dishwasher start light flashes and the timer display is blank.

That is a fault condition, if the display is blank it is probably a faulty control board.

Unplug the appliace from main, or trip circuit braker to cut power for ten minutes.

If display is still blank on startup, then replace the timer control assembly.
