Hi William,

thanks for that advice...
unfortunately that did not work, do you have any other suggestions? are you aware of how to do a test/ reset using the dishwasher buttons?

Kind Regards

is this doing a intermiting beeping? thanks

What happens is this,

whenever we power on the dishwasher,

the end light is flashing, then pressing the start/ pause button sounds a short series of beeps instead of starting the machine. Powering off and then on brings up the flashing light

Possible CauseSolution
The DishDrawerTM is in pause mode.Close the drawer and press the START/PAUSE button.

press the start/pause button for 3-5 seconds and if this dont work you will have to get a service tech out there hope this helps
