Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The two rotating spayers, the one at the top and the one at the bottom that pops up, are not working. How can I fix this? This is a GE Potscrubber 800 Dishwasher.


Answers :

First you need to see if you are getting enough water. Let it fill and then look at the center hub where the spray arm is. The water should be at least to the top of that hub. Also you can clean out the sump which is located in the right rear corner of the tub. Usually there is a cover over this which is easily removed with a few screws. Reach in with a gloved hand as there may be glass down there and clean it out. Also look at the spray arms themselves to see if the holes are clogged. You can usually clean these holes with a toothpick or similar object. If the water fill is too low, you may to need to clean or replace the water valve which is located behind the lower access panel usually on the left side.

Hello, Our Fagor LFA-013SS Dishwasher hasn't worked in a few days. It stopped working when it beeped 3 times after doing a load. On the machine it says if it beeps 3 times it means there's no drainage. My husband and I tried to fix it but we're not handy! So we tried calling repair companies but so far no one can repair Fagor dishwashers...help! Thanks

I have a Bosch SMU2046Uc/14 about 15 years old. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, for the last couple of months. Now it has stopped working completely as if no power. Checked the breaker. Another problem - one of our kids just today jammed the door lock on it and we cannot get the door to latch at all. Can you help with any one of these problems? How do you fix or reset the door latch??? What else can we check to troubleshoot the dishwasher? Thanks!

Last night when the dishwasher reached 6 in the cycle (plate warming) there was a loud pop that caused as to loose all electricity in our home. When the electrician took the dishwasher out of the powerpoint the electricity came back on. The power point still works so the electrician has said that the dishwasher has blown. Does this sound like something that could be fixed? And if so who would I contact to do this? Thanks

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli


I read your previous problem. This appears to be separate problems. The first was likely a loose wire. When a wire has a loose connection they build heat and can melt. The current issue would seem like the float switch is stuck. The float switch is ... Bosch SHU9925UC Built-in Dishwasher

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

I have a De Dietrich DV640JE1 built in 45cm Dishwasher, working fine for over 3 years. After replacing the connection under the sink to fix a leak it has stopped working.

I checked the arms and they are not blocked. A faint clunking sound can be heard at some part of the cycle. I did also run a cycle with the dr

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle.

I have the "rinse" error code on my kitchenaid double drawer dishwasher kudd01dppa1. I've turned off the power, then it worked for one load and the code reappeared on both drawers again. What should be a next step? it says in the manual that the "rinse" error code means that something happened to the flood switch...? Can this be fixed without calling out the kitchenaid technicians? thanks

My Bosch Dishwasher SGS53E72AU has water left in the bottom on the quick programmes, but not on the longer, hotter ones. There is no blockage of the pipes and the pump is working OK. I have to assume that the electronics have dumped some of the programming. Could you confirm that I have to acquire a new timer/electronics package from somewhere? Or is there an easier and cheaper fix? Many thanks. Hope to hear from you soon.

The dishwasher has three arms in it. The top and bottom arm do not rotate. The middle arm rotates fine. The arms will move when manually munipulated but do not spill while the dishwasher is on. There was a loud grinding the first time the dishwasher was used and it seemed to work fine but after about two months of use the arms will not rotate.


Sounds like maybe some rinsing salt was spilled when the salt reservoir was filled the first time (or broken glass, this always used to be an issue in catering) and got pumped through, lodging in the gap between the arm and it's mounting. this can ro ... Maytag Dishwasher
