Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Washing machine door tension too great

\015 The door on my Kenwood KDW243A washing machine is far too great how do I adjust it\015

Answers :

You need to pull the dishwasher out slightly to get to the top panel. On there you will see two screws attached to some cables. Release the tension on the cables by screwing the scres back in to make the cables appear slightly shorter. Ensure both cables are close to the same tension, and make sure that you do it with the door attached to get the proper weighting.

My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...


Check the water connection at the valve to the dishwasher. If the dishwasher only leaks when used then the motor seal is damaged. If leak is constant the the leak is at the supply to the dishwasher from the water supply at the valve\015\012 ... Dishwashers

Bosch Shu43C02UC dishwasher fills with water but the washing won't start. As the filling nears complete, a double clicking noise occurs to start the washing motor but nothing happens. The time continues to countdown but the machine is silent. When I open and close the door, the click click noise is heard but the machine is silent. I can cancel the cycle and drain the water but none of the washing or rinse cycles will activate but the timer works. The soap door even opens if the timer is left to

We have a Bosch Model SKT5102GB/07 and the problem is as follows; we load the dirty washing and start the washing process, the machine then goes through the full cycle of wash. Once finished you open the door and notice that the washing is still dirty and a large pool of water is laying in the bottom of the machine. We have had an independent engineer look at the machine and he has advised that the pump needs changing. Look forward to your reply, thank you. Regards Michael Ballard.

I have a Zanussi ZSF 2420. Every other wash or so the door for the powder does not open. If I actually open the dishwasher to check, sometimes it opens then and the washing powder tab falls out. Sometimes I open the machine and the door is open, but the powder tab has not fallen into the machine. Any solutions to this?

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?


It does sound like an inner door seal ,however If you get upset at Sears and complain they may help you as they say the squeaky hinge gets the oil..And with Sears the more you squeak the better your chances of results ...Good Luck ... Dishwashers

KitchenAid KUDL03IVWHO Machine seems to stop after the initial water fill. There is power to the machine, the door latch circuity is working, all the buttons on the control pad light up. After selecting any of the wash cycles and pressing start, the washing light illuminates and the machine fills normally to the point where the fill valve stops the inflow of water. At this point the machine stalls, it does not start the cleaning process. I can press cancel and the machine drains normally. I e

My Hotpoit FDL570g dishwasher (that is less than 2 years old) is tripping the circuit breaker originally during a wash and now when the unit is switched off and and door is closed.

Ignis ADL347 integrated dishwasher runs for a few seconds then stops, beeps and light flashes 6 times. I'm told this is due to water not getting into the dishwasher. it was working perfectly until we had a washing machine installed, can't see any pipes that are twisted or crushed but also don't have great access to the back of the washing machine or dishwasher. I have no expertise whatsoever. What should I be checking/trying? Any advice appreciated.

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.
