Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ). The high limit switch works and as I said, th

The washing, heated dry, and normal wash light just flash. I have unplugged and plugged it back in several time, i tried restting it by holding down the Rinse only button for 15 seconds. I pressed the high temp ater, heated dry, high temp water, heated dry buttons to try to reset. I also ran the hot water line that feeds the dishwasher until the water was hot. Nothing has helped. The machine is18 months old and therefor no longer under warranty.


Please provide the make and model number of the dishwasher.\015\012do you hear pumps running? what was the last cycle it was at when the flashing started. was there water left at the base of the dishwasher from the cycle that stopped? ... Dishwashers

DWI612C wash cycle runs on and on and on. Believing to be a problem with water heating I tried putting a couple large pan fulls of boiling water into machine during wash cycle and this did move it on from wash to rinse. How do I replace the heating element I cant see it it is not in the dish washing compartment? I dont want to call out a repair agent as one can probably buy a new machine for what that will cost. Thank you.

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Glasses have a film after washing complete. No food particles, just heavy film. I suspect dishes are the same, but doesn't show as much. Water temperature entering washer is 130 degrees.

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water prior to washing.


Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150. ... GE Hotpoint HDA3500N Dishwasher

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

My Omega Eurolux Dishwasher (mode: DW211P/1) won't stop cycling, It sems to get stuck during the wash cycle and continues for hours, until I turn it off. If I turn the dial to rinse it rinses fine. It doesn't seem to heat the water at all, there is no steam when I open the door. I have put a new heating element in, but this doesn't seem to be heating up at all. When I open the door mid wash cycle the element is cold to touch.

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

Our Miele G975SC dishwasher has developed a problem - it starts a wash or rinse cycle as normal - it pumps out, then fills with new water and starts washing as expected. Then it just carries on circulating the water and heating the water. It ran like this for at least 2 hours before we interrupted it by switching it off
