Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My new Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2415LFC) has not been used but is out of warranty. It has a leak with water dripping from two connectors (may be the heat coils) attached to the bottom of the dishwasher (located in the center). Why would water be dripping from this location and what is the repair solution? Should I try to return the dishwasher and obtain a replacement?

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through. Do you think it is a filter that is blocked? If this is the case are they easy to attach to the bottom or the machine or would I have to get

We just hooked up our old built in GE dishwasher and the water is shooting out the left side of the unit where the black water hose enters the tub. Shouldn't the water be entering into the wash arm? The hose isn't clogged. It attaches to a white plastic piece that is part of the unit itself. The water is entering both the tub but also shooting out of 2 slits approx 1 1/2" each. located right below where u attach the hose.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Maytag Dishwasher I would like to know the proper water level after DW fills. Older Whirlpool units a quick guide was when water just covered heater. I have a new D/W and the water supply is difficult to access, there is a kink in the water line slowing the water flow. The D/W fills to bottom of heater, but because the unit is so quiet I can't determine if it is timing out or working properly. I intend to repair water line when counter work is done. Thanks for any help Gary

KitchenAid dishwasher: KUDS01FL - I have had to replace the fuse every year and now I can't even get through on cycle with the fuse going. It is now dead again! It almost makes it through the full cycle and then stops (fuse blows)- no power - and there is some water left in the bottom which I have to physically remove. I spent a fortune on repairs every year since I bought it and would like to try to avoid another charge. I appreciate any help that you can offer. Thank you, Carol

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

Re: Bosch Dishwasher Model SHX46B06UC/14 (year 2003) Good afternoon, I have water dripping into my dishwasher when it is not in use, approximately up to 1/2 inch over a few hours. The water collects at the bottom inside the dishwasher. I have to shut off the dishwasher water supply so that it does not overflow. Other than that, the dishwasher works perfect! Any idea as to what has to be replaced? Can I do it myself or do I have to call a technician. Thanks very much for your help.

Dishwasher is making a loud grinding noise when it's started. Doesn't matter the cycle choice; the cycle starts as normal then once started up starts making a sort of grinding noise as the water is pulsing, like something is stuck or blocking the "push" of water. I couldn't see anything stuck in the bottom - any thoughts before I call a repair person? I've never owned a dishwasher before - maybe there's a basic drain/blockage thing I should check out first? And, any recommendations for repair

My dishwasher (model #110763510) lets water go out from the door; I think the problem comes from the overfill protector because it is no more linked to the system: I can pull it out from the dishwasher. I would like to know if it easy to repair, easy access from under. If so, then I would order the piece and repair it myself. Thanks for your advice. Claude

I turned on my Whirlpool dishwasher last night before I went to bed. It is a model number DU915PwP82. Sometime shortly after that, a water line broke in my neighborhood. The water was off and caused some sort of problem with my dishwasher. There is some water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It won't drain or start washing. Do I need to call a repair man or is there a reset button of some sort. Thanks for your help. Rina

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains?

Not getting enough water flow into the dishwasher, suspect that a filter is clogged due to recent work on the waterline in the kitchen sink. Need to know where the filter might be located (on the dishwasher or on the intake valve before the connection to the dishwasher hose)? Also would I need to disconnect the water supply to pull out the dishwasher for access to such a filter.


You didn't specify a brand but most dishwashers don't have a water "filter." They may have an inlet screen at the water valve, which is typically located under the dishwasher. Generally, the lower front panel will have to be removed and you should ... Dishwashers
