Dishwashers - Page 8 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

First thing I'd check then is, is there water actually getting to the fridge?
Then, has the fridge ever been turned off during this process? Wondering if there might be a frozen line somewhere.
After that, my only other approach would be to dismantle as much as I dared to see if there is a blockage in some piece of tubing somewhere.
Hope this helps.

I wouldn't think you'd have to. Usually a motherboard has slots for various controller cards for different functions. Hard to tell without seeing it. I would get another opinion from another service company.

Most appliances need power to stay locked. Just unplug it, and wait for the thermal lock to cool down. In a few minutes it should open like normal. You may wish to have an aquavac handy. If it was mid cycle when something? happened

It could be a timer, relay or valve actuator overheating. You are smart to worry about a fire ANYTIME you smell something hot like that. I wouldn't use it until you get it checked out. GOOD LUCK!!!

If it is electrically activated, it is probably a loose wire from the timer control or possibly a bad timer switch.If it is mechanically activated, it may be a broken plastic part in the actuator or at the door itself. Good Luck..

What make and model are you referring to?

I had water at the bottom of my 4 year old plus dishwasher and of course I thought the worst. Did the pump go out, bad impeller, or what else could it be! I started with the easy stuff first and disconnected the drain lines. The drain line runs from the dishwasher to an air gap mounted to my sink, which keeps the drain line from getting an airlock. From the air gap device another larger line runs to the garbage disposal. I used an 8MM wrench to loosen the clamps enough to pull the drain lines off and drained them into a bucket. There really wasn't any resistance to water flow and no real chunks, I was disappointed.
I then took the actual air gap out of the sink by removing a large plastic nut and pulling the devise out from underneath the sink. When I inspected the air gap I saw a wad of hairy, feathery plastic stuff blocking the flow of water. I took the chunk out, reassembled everything and it works like new again.
It is a very easy fix and now even the area under the sink is clean to boot.

Check float valve actuator, might be indicating empty when water left behind. Think you can hear switch actuate as you move it.
So no clog or twist in drain hose? Manual indicates any standing water drains in first 45 secs. Makes me wonder if that is now normal. Was it always or just started to leave water....
Make sure you clean filter located in bottom

I had the same error. Unplugged it. No help. What I did that fixed it was to hold the start/pause button down for 3 secs. This then started the machine's cycle where it had been before the error. In my case about 30secs before the actual end.

I think the eroor was caused by opening the machine before it had actually finished it's cycle.
