It Seems My Dishwasher Has No Idea What It's Doing!

Clearly my dishwasher is confused.

I don't think it knows what it wants.

You may remember my whinging complaining ramblings awesome story last week about my dishwasher and its cry for help? No? Best you go back and read about it then. Here it is right here. Off you go, I'll wait for you....

Caught up? Good.

So, last week my dishwasher put out a cry for help. It was beeping and flashing F1. In the computer world thats "HELP!". In dishwasher world it means "get a mop!! I'm about to flood myself!"

But it was an attention seeking cry for help as there was no flood. Not a drop of water.
This wasn't the first time the dishwasher was seeking attention and quite frankly I want a new one so on Saturday Mr Hausfrau and myself headed off to Harvey Norman to investigate a replacement and how much hard earned money we'd need to part with.

Found one - German of course.




Just need to work out how we are paying for it.

But I think the current dishwasher had caught wind of the possible new replacement as no further complaints were made.

Until today.

Half way through a full load this happens




Aparently U1 means "no water"

WTF dishwasher??? Make up your mind! Is it too much water and you're gonna flood or you're not getting enough water????

I've had enough!! The dishwasher clearly has a problem. We're off to Harvey Norman this weekend to pick up the new one.

Or maybe I could just employ the dog to do it?

    1. Thanks Mel! I'd be lost without mine.... The new one is one of those awesome 3 rack ones where the cutlery has its own tray - not a basket but a WHOLE tray of its own! I'm in love!
