Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Leak between the housing and the motor; spray harm doesn't move.

\015 Dishwasher fills with water and motor runs, but no water is being pumped during the wash cycle. The water doesn't pump out/drain our of the dishwasher during drain cycle. \015\012Question: Is the problem solely the pump, or are other parts involved in the problem? Is this a problem that I could fix (i.e. if the pump is broken, could a novice easily disassemble and reassemble all the parts)? And, if not, how much would it most likely cost? Finally, given the age of the machine, would it be more cost effective to buy a new dishwasher?\015\012Thanks for the help.\015\012Chris\015

I have a GE potscrubber Dishwasher Model # GSD3630ZZ3WW it has been leaking from the bottom for about a week. I took the bottom off tonight and ran the dishwasher so that I could see where it is leaking from. It is not a hose but the leak seems to be coming from the back of the motor or pump fan where it goes into that plastic housing that attaches to the bottom of the dishwasher seems to be leaking in the very center of that housing where the motor shaft enters the housing.

Both spray arms of my DU943PWKQ0 do not turn or spray. The motor is moving and the it drains without problem. During the wash and rinse cycle I can hear the sound of water, however it doesn't clean at all and the sprays arms stay where they were. It seems the motor only creates no spray, but wave. I powered cycled the dishwasher, the problem remains the same. Anyone know what's wrong with it? Thanks James

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.


Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cl ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher

Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0

Leaking FDW60 I have a Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher. yesterday it tripped our house electrics and then we had water flooding out of the dishwasher. Through a process of elimination I have now discovered that water is leaking from the drainage sump in the centre of the babse down onto the motor or other electrics. I have looked for loose hoses and there are none visible from the base of the dishwasher, can you give some ideas where the water might be coming from?

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

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill it?

Whirlpool DU1101 Hello, My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway

Hi, I had to clean the lime build-up and all the crud, so I disassembled it down to where you could see the disc cutter. I re-assembled it and now it leaks water above the motor when it calls for water. Also the gasket thats in the discharge housing is loose.

I have a Bosch DLX Series (SMU4092UC/14) dishwasher that I can't use because the detergent dispenser doesn't open automatically during the wash cycle so the dishes only get sprayed with hot water but no detergent. Is there a fix for this? Or is it time to get a new dishwasher? I know this one is old since I've lived in my house over ten years and it was there when I moved in.

I just finished a service call for my 5312UC/UC12. The tecnician says he saw water leaking under neath the machine but hoses were secure and no visible crack to the motor housing, The machines pump works but very little water is actually put into the tub, hence no dishwashing. This technician says that this is a repair that most technicians avoid because it takes a long time and costs alot and violated some sort of warranty. He recommend replacement after only 7 years!
