You might want to be more specific.

sorry what do mean by more specific. that is all that is happening as far as i can tell. the dishwater wont turn on. the controls turn on light etc but other than that its not working.
i have recently moved into the property and have used the dishwasher a few times with no problems. this is the firt time it has had any problem. i dnt knw what to do with it.

Well, what dishwasher model it is for a start smile
"7 on the instruction booklet" may be no help as 7 may something different in each booklet depending on model (in the random one I googled, it was the timer delay indicator if that helps). Does the booklet say what "7" is?

oh ok sorry soupdargon (its my first dishwasher). well the booklet says 7 means Cleaning Display. the model is SD6P1F and its by NEFF.

Switch it off and on again at the mains smile

It looks like you just press the buttons in a certain sequence and dance widdershins twice round the kitchen by the light of a full moon and this resets the console and runs a diagnostic cycle.

Switching it off at the mains is my default fix-it for most things though grin

hahaha thats so funny SoupDragon.

switching it off and on at them mains is also the extent of my technical ability. that didnt work.

will try the dance though. should i unload the dishwasher or not before doing it?

Heaven knows - try both smile

I know this is a zombie thread but what was the answer OP?? I have the same problem but I don't have the right buttons to press, just a selector so can't even try that!
