Cda dishwasher Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make

This answer was rated:

Cda dishwasher
Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?
Customer: Cda wc140. Programme button just beeping when pressed. Not starting.
Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Depends how complicated it is
Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: How much will this cost?
Assistant: The Expert's answer will cost $10 to $100, depending on the issue type and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive and more convenient than any face-to-face visit.
Customer: Ok


So when you turn the dishwasher on do all the lights light up then turn off so just one program light is lit?

Are you able to change to a different cycle?

How much will this cost?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It was not made clear

Sorry not sure what you mean, Do you mean how to much to fix the dishwasher or how much this conversation is?

If its this site then its what ever you agreed when you asked the question as i dont get involved in the money side so you will need to email customer services about that.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ok, fair enough. When the last cycle ended the red light for 'end cycle' has remained on. I press the programme button to start it and it beeps once.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not able to choose any cycle, or just beeps once, end light remains on

Ok if you press and hold the program button in for several seconds it should reset, Try that and let me know what happens.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
it just beeps once
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Not resetting, beeps once when I release programme button

Ok try this and see what happens.

Turn the dishwasher off by the power switch on the left.

Press and hold the program button.

With that held in turn the dishwasher back on,

All the lights should light up after a few seconds, If so let go of the program button.

Now turn the dishwasher off and back on again and see of this has reset it.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It's making a noise
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Just shut the door, it's behaving as though it is starting
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
But it didn't let me choose a cycle

What noise is it making?

Is it the drain pump thats running?

Did you turn it off after doing the above?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Sounds like the pump, I did turn it off and on again but then it went back to beeping, it sounds promising at the moment

Ok so does it seem to be working now?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It also leaks water sometimes but I think that's an installation fault
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It appears to be working
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thank you

Ok see how it goes and hopefully that has reset it going into test mode.

As sometimes the control board can freeze and just needs to be rebooted by putting into test mode.

If you could remember to click the star ratings at the top of the page that would be great.

Many thanks
