Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Have a hotpoint dishwasher, replaced the water valve and it doesn't seem to loading water. I disconnected both sides of the water line but still is not working. Any ideas?


Answers :

THERE IS A FLOAT/FLOOD SWITCH ON THE FRONT LEFT SIDE INSIDE THE TUB. SOMETHING MAY HAVE GOTTEN UNDER IT OR IT IS GUNKED UP. THIS WILL PREVENT VOLTAGE FROM GOING TO THE WATER VALVE, THUS, NO WATER.

We got our maytag 300 quiet series about 3 years ago from home depot. about a year ago the option buttons/lights on the right side went dead. It was out of warranty and still worked so i ignored it. Now last night, the left side buttons/lights still work, but the start button is dead. It wont run at all. Any ideas?


Our Maytag dishwasher (an earlier model) quit too. Found that the door latch operates two micro-switches which supply power to the machine and one of the switches no longer made contact when operated. The switch pair and the plastic latch parts are s ... Maytag 24 in. MDB5651A Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model #FDB635rfs It is not that old, but appears to have quit working. It sounds like it runs the water gets pushed in by the tube on the side but goes straight to the bottom of the washer. It looks like the spray arms are not spinning. Water is not circulating. Element still heats up. Detergent just runs down the inside of the door and doesn't dissolve since water is not circulating through arms. I have just replaced the water inlet valve and it did not hel

When I hit the start button on my dishwasher nothing happens. It still "finishes" the cycle but nothing ever cuts on. It doesnt fill with water and the sump pump never engages to drain the water that's not there. Any ideas? I know the inlet water pump works, I've detached it and connected it with a pigtail to an outlet.

The water is not draining from machine, although the pump is obviously trying. It doesn't sound quite right. Kind of a growling noise. It can pump water into tubs when experimenting with ideas, but can't pump hard enough to pump the water into the sink. This is all done with the hose removed so we could check for debris in the line. I've checked the filters and they are clean and clear. This is a used machine a friend gave me, and it's been working beautifully until now.

My Bosch Classixx is not filling with water and no sound of the pump trying to work either. I fiddled around with it as it was not cleaning bowls properly on the bottom shelf - plates and cutlery were fine! Think I might have disturbed the round dome thing - is this the "float switch"? There is also about an inch in the bottom of the filter area which I have cleaned out of gunk but still with water there. Any ideas please!

I brought my 2 yr old Kitchenaid model kudp01dl over from my foreclosed home to install where I live now, and the left side of the touchpad to run a load doesn't work anymore. I know one wire had jostled loose underneath, and my husband re-connected it to it's terminal, but could there be another I am not seeing as well? Or any other ideas? It still works fine to cancel, drain, and select drying options, etc, but I can't start a load!!!

Hotpoint Dishwasher Bought it new 2 weeks ago. Seemed to be working ok. Last night it started leaking out the front door (suds). I disconnected the drain line (tried to blow through line to tub, NO GO) so I started it and ran it into the sink. It seemed to be flowing OK, but there is still about 1/2 inch of water inside washer. Is this OK? Model # HDA3400G02BB

Hi I have a Troy-Bilt Pressure washer 2200 psi model 20292. I've used it only 4 or 5 times. It ran great for an hour today then it lost pressure. Seems like the pump is not working. The engine runs fine but no pressure. The water runs through the nozzel and I blew air in the lines to make sure there is no blockage and found no blockage even in the pump lines. Any ideas. Tom

Hi there, The error code 'strong and economy light flicker fleetly' is showing. the manual says that this means too much inlet water.
