Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher only heating water - blades not turning, no new water

\015 We were recently given a Hotpoint DF53 dishwasher. It was a little troublesome to install (various problems from not letting water out to no electricity going in) but that was all resolved in late January. Last week it stopped working. Firstly, I set it running, only to return a couple of hours later to find that the dishes were wet, soap not disolved and all clamy inside. The light was on indicating that the dishwasher was still running a cycle, but no noise. I checked and the lower blade had fallen off. I replaced this, closed the door and the water started swirling again. It all sounded fine, so I walked away again. When I checked a few hours later, the cycle had not continued. It was clamy and the water at the bottom was warm. The light was still on. The soap still not disolved although the dishes were slightly better than when it had stopped before. We haven't been able to get it going again. We'd really appreciate the help. Thanks\015

My Omega Eurolux Dishwasher (mode: DW211P/1) won't stop cycling, It sems to get stuck during the wash cycle and continues for hours, until I turn it off. If I turn the dial to rinse it rinses fine. It doesn't seem to heat the water at all, there is no steam when I open the door. I have put a new heating element in, but this doesn't seem to be heating up at all. When I open the door mid wash cycle the element is cold to touch.

Long cycles My dishwasher (approx 7 years old) will run in the wash cycle for hours...until I physically turn the nob to "rinse"; then it will stay in that cycle until I advance the knob to the final (expel water) stage. I checked the filter and the blades - no obstructions. Also, when completed, the dishes are hot, so I know the heating element is working.

I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area, the whole bottom is covered with water. This is after running a normal cycle with no other options such as sanitize or heat dry. I called Lowes, the store that sold/installed it, and they said this is normal in new dishwashers to keep the parts wet. They said as long as the water does reach th

Broken dishwasher It started when my dishwasher flooded my kitchen. I drained it and turned it on, it was fine. then it happened again. I have drained it then when I went to turn it on again it just sounds like it is running with no water. If I put water into the bottom it will drain but it will not fill up. I bought this house 3 years ago I am unsure how old the dishwasher, do I need to get a new one?

Water not going into dishwasher. We turned off the water temporarily because we first had a leak. Fixed the leak and tried the dishwasher. It would not drain, the garbage disposer was clogged. We put in a new garbage disposer, hooked up the water again to the dishwasher and now the water will not go into dishwasher. Help!

The dishwasher starts and initially rinses the dishes without heated water. In the next part of the cycle, the water is supposed to heat to a certain temperature.Beginning this morning, in this second part of the cycle,the dishwasher trips the circuit breaker. If you reset the breaker and turn the sihwasher back on, the breaker trips again. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

I have a candy CDI1012-B-80 dishwasher that is new and i am new to dishwashers. I have added a tablet, but not rinse aid (do I need this?). The tablet drawer is not opening and it has not drained.

What are some things I can check before I have to call out a professional?


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it's not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you g ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU890SWKQO). I turned it on and for a few minutes only the motor was running, no water. I opened the dishwasher to stop it and turn it off, then on again. When I opened it, the was an odor (burning or heat smell) and it was foggy (steam or smoke, not sure which) inside. I am assuming I did not turn the dial correctly so it only 'clicked' on the motor. Concerned now that the dishwasher is broken or concerned that it's not safe to use. Was the steam/smoke

My dishwasher was recently 'installed'. i don't know if the contractor made a mistake or if the water valve is not turned on, but the cycle tries to start but then no water is flowing into the dishwasher. everything appears to be hooked up, but I think it's the water issue b/c i also have a new refrigerator and the water dispenser/ice maker does not work because no water is flowing into the fridge either.


This sure sounds like a water valve issue, for sure. You will have to trace out the lines (not easy, but possible) and figure out where the valve is. They usually turn left to open, and right to close. I would call the contractor and tell them ... Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

I have the Siemens SL84A305UC Dishwasher. All of a sudden it stopped cleaning dishes, but everything sounds normal and it fills and drains water, and sounds like it is completing the cycle. In the past when I opened the door while it was actively washing the water would spray out aggressively. Now, when I opened it while it was supposed to be washing I see just a small amount of water coming from the bottom wash blade, and not even enough to turn the blade very far. I thought it was just a c
