Customer Question

Hi I am having issues with my cda cw 195/1

5 flashes is a wash motor fault. Ive seen it many times on these whirlpool built dishwasher as they are just badged up CDA.

What you need to do is pull the dishwasher out and lay it on its left side and remove the base.

From there you will see the wash motor at the back. Take this off and just see if theres anything stuck in there.

If that's all clear then the motor itself will be faulty and will need to be replaced. To be honest its more then likely clear but worth checking just in case. Ive seen this fault many times and its nearly always the wash motor at fault.

Now the odd time it has turned out to be the control board but that's very rare as like I said its nearly always the wash motor at fault which causes this fault.

Sorry it not good news but if you need anymore info just get back to me.
