We cannot keep temperature of our Jackson Tempstar dishwasher at a constant temp. One time the rinse will be down a bit and then the wash. We have replaced the gauges, thermostats, motor and element of the diswasher. It is kept constantly clean, and we have tried everything we can think of. Would there be a wire that could be coming loose every once in awhile that may cause this? Thank you for any help you can give us.

My frididaire dishwasher is leaking at the heating element/burner (red wire). I have tried to tighten the connection from under the dishwasher but it continues to leak (very slowly). The clasp used to tighten the element does not hold it's tightness and will become too loose if tightened all the way. What do I do?

The upper rack side rail is loose where it attaches to the side wall of the dishwasher. It allows the upper rack to wobble. When the dishwasher is turned on, the force of the water pushes the rack forward so it detaches from the water supply and the arm does not rotate. The arm and connection are all clear and the arm is able to rotate, so those problems are not a factor. The wheels are in good condition. The left rail is a little loose; the right one is very loose. There must be a way t

I have an Indesit IDL500 dishwasher. It had stopped heating the water up, it looked as if it had short circuited and so i replaced it, i have power going to the element.

Does this pcb control the program selection and heating of the element? or is there a thermostat that controls the stop and start of the heating element? Any help would be greatly appreciated
