Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Does this model fully drain?

\015 We just moved into our apartment and we've noticed that there remains about an inch of water in the interior drain area. The landlord insists that this is normal for this model which "does not fully drain." The handy man did work on it a bit. During the first few days, whenever I put in the liquid soap, water and bubbles would pour out from under the door. So far it does not clog up, but I wonder if this unit is really fixed.\015

Answers :

Switch immediately to a Brand Name Dishwasher powder (like Electrosol or Cascade.)  Avoid gels, tablets and never use a dish soap that is meant for washing dishes in a sink.  This will solve the "bubbles" problem.\015\012
\015\012Yes, dishwashers do maintain some level of water inside to keep the pump seals/gaskets from drying out or seizing. As long as the water down there is clear and has no odor, you and your apartment's dishwasher is fine.\015\012

Hello, I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher, model FDB750RCC1. It will not fully drain. There is water in the bottom of the unit after the cycle is complete. As it is not full of water or leaking out of the unit when I open the door I am suspecting it is the pump that has broken? (the water must be draining to the overflow point and then stopping as there is nothing pumping it) Any thoughts or ideas for me anyone? Am I on the right track?

I received a second-hand as-is Akso D3530 (model #107353001) dishwasher. It washes perfectly fine, but at the end of the cycle, it keeps running. It does not seem to be the drain that is running, but rather the circulating pump. I have fully emptied the pan of water (there was only a little in it (you couldn't see it until you removed the sieve) using a turkey baster and it keeps running. I also checked the float sensor in the bottom. The float sensor is not tripped, and when I manually trip it,


Hi.The float switch is not a water level switch, but an overfill switch. The control board uses the input from the pressure sensor to decide when to stop the pump.When you open the float switch circuit the machine 'thinks' that ther ... Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHE58C did not completely drain. We were eventually able to use the cancel cycle/drain procedure to get the machine mostly drained, but now all the lights are lit on the panel, and the count down display is 11. I haven't figured out how to reset. I have tried to hit "Cancel drain" and turn on the machine to get into diagnostic mode, but I can't figure out what the codes & light combinations mean because my model is not in any of the online sources I've found


I have managed to pick up typical diagnostic error codes for a bosch dishwasher - these are\015\012\015\0120 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault\015\0121 = Aqua Se ... Bosch Evolution 800 SHE58C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
