Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our Westinghouse washing machine is 5 years old. it is not washing the grease, butter from cutlery. Also everything is wet. Do you know What is the cause? Thank you


Answers :

It is almost certain that your heating element has failed and needs to be replaced.

The heating element must turn on to get the wash cycle water hot enough to activate the detergent.

Once the element is replaced, you will see immediate improvement.

Good Luck!

Gritty dishes My dishes are coming out of the wash gritty. It is as if food has been dried on them. As if the rinse water has particles in it and then they are left on every dish. I have used a dishwasher cleaner several times and I also use the rinse agent in the machine. Nothing is helping. It is getting worse.The inside of the dishwasher. mostly on the top, usually has food residue all over it at the end of every wash. Even the machine is dirty. I'm hand washing everything right now.

Wont dry Hello, I have the Asko D3112 dishwasher. It washes great, but does not dry completely. After a wash everything is still drenched as if i splashed in a bucked full of water. I know it drains properly (i hear it draining down the sink), and it attempts to dry (hot air). I also am using the rinse aid as specified in the manual. Any tips would help. thank you Andrew

WE HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH OUR MAYTAG DISHWASHER RIGHT FROM DAY ONE.

I just purchased and installed an Haier ESD 210 dishwasher. Everything seems to work fine except the machine will not shut off. Also, after selecting the "wash program" the LED blinks continually during all cycles. It takes some effort to latch the door but it does lock. Can you help? Thank you.

Hi, We have a small CDI454-80 Candy Dishwasher. It is just 18 months old and has only been used around twenty to thirty times. It has recently started to leave a film on all the dishes after the wash is complete. We noticed it a few days ago and have tried different tablets but with no better results.

Need a service/repair manual for a Bosch SGS0905AU/01. The machine is completely dead (no display) after a burnt smell came from it. On the pump motor is a broken/melted brown attachment with a broken ceramic(?) disc inside which looks like some type of capacitor. I really need to know what this is/was so I can replace it. Also, need to know whether there is another fuse somewhere in the machine as that has most likely blown as well. TIA

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.

Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

The standard procedure to start the machine is to select a cycle (normal, dry heat, etc) then press the start key. Currently when I select the cycle and the cycle LED is on, pressing the start key does not start the machine. I can press cancel, then start and then choose the cycle and it will work. Also, if I first press the start key, the machine will start and the previous wash cycle selection LED will light up and that cycle will run. Do I have a problem with the keypad or the con
