Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Inherited diplomat dishwasher with my house

\015 Can someone please tell me the quickest wash programme, i cannot see the model number but the machine has- Soak, Delicate, Eco, Strong and Super . The eco cycle seems to last forever at least an hour!!\015

Answers :

Today's dishwashers use less water and less electricity so the manufacturers have had to increase wash times to get good results. One hour is about normal for the "eco" cycle since it's always "sensing" the water turbidity (soil in the wash water) and water temperature, and making adjustments as necessary.
Your shortest wash cycle would be "delicate" but it might not give you the best results.

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher. Model Number 665. Serial Number 15762000. Stock Number FL4413201 Type 280-1 15762 The tag that lists these numbers is a little confusing. The numbers are to the right of the words but don't line up directly, so perhaps all the "numbers" above are shifted down one? Problem: Today (10/07/10) my dishwasher stopped working...for no apparent reason. I inherited the dishwasher when I bought the house about 3 1/2 years ago. I don't know of any extended warran

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

My daughter has inherited a Heller HDW12 dishwasher with the house she bought. It has been operating OK for some months, but recently the door has jammed. I have tried to open it without success. From my examination it appears to be the lock on the top of door that is malfunctioning. Your advice to overcome this problem would be appreciated. Thanking you ...Dennis Edwards


The lock could be faulty or the wiring to lock could be loose or broken. You can try to unplug for a while, in meantime of being unplugged, press and hold some buttons to drain all the power out and see if it resets itself. Then wait half hour and pl ... Dishwashers

My Maytag mdb 7 dishwasher stopped working on the same day that a Plumber came to our house to fix our toilet. He says he didn't turn off the water anywhere in the house, other than the valve beside the toilet. Yet our dishwasher all of a sudden stopped working. Can the 2 problems be connected? Or is it a coincidence or am i stuck replacing my dishwasher?


If he indeed only accessed the toiled shut off valve, then that would not affect the dishwasher.\015\012\015\012Even if dirt/sediment got into the line to the washer somehow, it should be able to be cleared at the inlet valve to the washe ...

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

We have a Model 587.1440*, 587.1441* Kenmore dishwasher. I had turned the water off to the whole house when we left for vacation and openned one faucet so the water pressure would be off the house while we were gone. Upon our return, I turned the water back on but the dishwasher gets no water. ?? What happened? It was working fine when we left, now no water. ?/


First, have you run it long enough to purge the air from the dishwasher line?\015\012\015\012Secondly, the solenoid valve for the water inlet may be stuck due to no pressure on it while you were gone. Tapping it with something light like ... Dishwashers

I recently bought a house (appliances came with it). The dishwasher is model #HSD2504J01WW. It does not get the dishes even slightly clean. There are food particles on all items, even glasses which had no food in/on them. I have made sure the waterhose to the dishwasher is wide open so enough water flows to it. I have run vinegar through a cycle....I am not sure how old this model is, the previous owner had the house for 4 years and it was here then. I do not want to spend alot repairing it,
