Hi

When this happens if you look at the start light I will be flashing. You need to count the number of flashes from it in between the pause and let me know.

It's continual
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Just look at it carefully as it should be flashing an error code.

You may get 10 flashes from it in between a pause and 10 flashes again.

Just double check that please and see if it is flashing an error code or weather its just continual flashing.

There is no error code and it is continual?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Try this its a test cycle and see if it shows the error code this way.

Turn the dishwasher on and select the rinse cycle first on the left.

Turn the dishwasher off.

Press and hold the start button and turn it back on.

Hold the start button in till the start light is flashing then let go.

Now press the start button once and close the door.

Now it will run a 12 minute test cycle. If it picks up a fault it will stop, drain the water out and beep.

Open the door and the start light will be flashing. Count the number of flashes from it in between the pause and let me know.

Then press and hold the start button to reset it.

No worries.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's gone past 12 minutes and not stopped and still not heating?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

Ok has it not completed the test cycle yet?

If not then carefully open the door and press the start button once and close the door again and it should drain the water out and complete the test cycle.

Try that and let know if that exits test mode.

Ok draining just now
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It just stopped and beeped 3 times not flashing at all?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 1 year ago.

As to the fault you have here then if its not heating that could be why its stopping mid cycle.

For this its either the heater itself, Wiring in the door or the control board itself.

What you need to do is remove the wooden door panel and then remove the outer metal door and there you will see the wiring loom going to the bottom. Open the plastic holder and inspect each wire. You need to give them a tug one at a time and check to see if any have broke as the can break were it goes round the bend in the door.

If the wires are fine then you need to remove the bottom inspection cover below the door and there you will see the heater on the right. You ened a multi meter to test this for continuity. If faulty then you need to replace it.

But if the heater and the wiring in the door are both fine then im afraid you are left with the control board here. You will need to replace it and that should cure it from there.

But if you have beeps then this is a heater error code im afraid.
