10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even though the dishes seemed to be clean on the two occasions that the dishwasher has leaked. Only need a somewhat simple machine- I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what brands I should research if buy is the conclusion. Thanks.
At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement.

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

My maytag dishwasher door will not latch shut, and all of the lights keep flashing. What does this mean and how can I fix it? or will I have to buy a new one....?

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles.

Bosch SHE56C05UC dishwasher. My Bosch ON/OFF switch is very difficult to depress. I have to push it so hard I know I will eventually break it. I removed the control panel and tried to clean it but to no avail. I want to find out how to fix it. If I have to buy a new control panel just don't tell me and don't charge me. Fair enough?
I believe you can get the on/off switch separately for this model. \015\012Appears to be moderately priced. Hope ... Dishwashers
Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem
