Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Toilet flapper closes too fast, can't figure out the best position to adgust the chain.

\015 When I flush the toilet the flapper closes too fast. You have to hold the flush lever down to get it to flush properly. I didn't have this problem before I replaced the flapper and I used the same brand as always. I know I have adjust the chain connected to the flapper, but it doesn't seem to matter how high or low I go with the adjustment, I can't get it to work right. Also, it does't seem to help no matter which hole in the flush lever I anchor the chain in.\015

I bought a Frigidaire Dishwasher on November 2006. Model #PLD4375RFCO. (I paid K&N Sales $549.00) In October 2008 I called your toll free Number to report Er code was flashing. You recommended Best Service. I called them and the repairman said the"vent was not closing - fault on Drying fan - vent is closed. Sensor bad on assembly." I needed a new drying fan assembly (for $148). With his service fee and labor after he returned to put in the new assembly, the total paid to Best service was $318.25

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

My soap cap remains in the closed position at all times. The clasp mechanism works fine, if I cycle through with the door open I can see and hear the catch release when it should. But the door remains closed at all times. I leave it open to run, and sometimes it's closed when the wash cycle finishes! Is there an easy way to take the cap off and clean it? Or do I need to WD-40 around it?

Ok, after a year, I've figured out the problem. I changed a bunch of parts, but never until now figured out that what it is doing is, water is running out the hole behind the door, where the overflow dripguard sits, if the front three panels are on. when those panels are on, water, just before position 6, pours down that plastic dripguard piece, into the big tray. eventually the tray overflows. when you take off the panels, then water just pours onto the floor. if you open the DW, the basin is t

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?

I have an LG dishwasher lds5811ww -- for about 1.5 years. Purchased it at Best Buy. The soap dispenser is not emptying completely anymore. The upper rack is in its uppermost position. I suspect that the top two spray bars are not turning around because they have not changed positions when I suddenly open the dishwasher while in operation. The spray nozzles do not appear clogged. Any suggestions?

On my GE dishwasher (model GSD4020Y70BB), the main detergent cup cover will not close. I've made sure the selector knob is in the OFF position - but the cover still will not close. I'm afraid if I put any further pressure on the main detergent cover handle, it will break something.

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca
