The dishwasher is circa ten to twelve years old.
When we start a new cycle the machine keeps gurgling, i.e. there is no change. The display comprises three buttons that can be reset and an end button. I've tried resting and now have the end light on but the machine continues to gurgle.
Does that help?
resting should read resetting
There are five buttons in all. One - far left - is the on/off. To the right hand side of the machine there are four buttons: three are underlined with the word reset. Not so the fourth (used to clean glasses). I had the machine cycle on the middle of the three underlined buttons.
The machine was on for about three hours before we noticed it should have ended. Dishes are still dirty but have been rinsed slightly. The tablet had come out but wasn't dissolved. I have removed filters to clean those. The machine hasn't finished its cycle. When I reset (by pressing left and right of underlined buttons) the end light comes on. But the machine still makes the same sound. When I switch off, it stops when I switch on again, the same sound is made which I describe as gurgling.
I turned off at the mains and waited the hour as you suggested. I've just switched on again and the gurgling noise and problems continue as before.
Thank you for your help and information. As the office is now closed I shall have to ring in the morning.
You may recall my dishwasher problems and your suggestion that I should buy a new control panel. Well I did as you suggested and the item has arrived. Are you available to advise how to fit it. I should say that my screwdrivers don't fit any of the screws - do they take an allen key, do you know?
They are torx type (I haven't heard of them before now and have just checked what a torx type looks like on the web).
Thanks again. I'm just off to the shop to buy a torn type screwdriver.
I wish to challenge your assertion that the item was easy to replace although I agree that the principle of replacing it was straightforward. However after much grunting I have a non-gurgling and functioning dishwasher as well as a wife who is beaming on my heroic efforts. As a good deal of the credit belongs to you I responded modestly (as you would expect) and I herewith attribute it to its rightful place. Many thanks for your good offices.
