The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics. I called the repair guy who ususally comes out and says buy a new one! The re

Frigidaire model F71C12PHS0 is not washing, it goes through the cycle and when the door is opened the soap container is open with soap still in it. We have run it with the door open to see if it is spraying and it is. The heat is working because when we open it at the end of cycle it is hot. Yet soap is still there and dishes are not clean. Thanks to anyone who can help me trouble shoot this.

After running a cycle, there is some water in the tub and the soap dispenser is open but the soap has only run down the inside of the door. It does not sound like there is a vigorous spray during the wash cycle. Opening the door during the wash cycle reveals only a little water reaching the upper arm.

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

Whirlpool adp8540 - goes throught the wash cycle without the soap door opening, the water gets into the soap box, and the powder or tablet (I've tried all the brands) are wet but remain in the soap box. When I flick the level on the soap box, works just fine, just doesn't happen during the wash cycle.


Normally, the dispenser is waterproof when closed, so the detergent should not get wet. Most likely the actuator of the dispenser works and does open the door, but something is blocking it from opening all the way. Look for stuff not it its place, ie ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Our Whirlpool ADP5966 is not washing properly: the dishes do not come out clean and the soap mainly stays in the dispenser although it opens normally. The quick wash cycle is hopeless now and the longer ones still not good. We have cleaned filters, soap dispenser etc but still the soap stays in dispenser often turning into a concrete like block.

I just installed a new Kitchenaid dishwasher (Model KUDE60FVSS3). After filling with soap, closing the door and starting the machine, it fills with water, waits a couple of minutes and then I can hear low humming noices coming from down below. After opening the door it appears that neither spray arm has turned as if to wash. This dishwasher was purchased new a few years ago and kept in storage as our basement was being finished. This dishwasher has never completed one cycle. Any and all inf

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.


There is a key (usually the dry key) that needs to be held for 4 seconds to turn the child lock on or off. If it comes on again try holding this key for 4 seconds.If it was pressed and held by mistake this could cause the lock to activate ... Kenmore Dishwashers

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

I have a du1145xtpq7 whirlpool dishwasher. Out of the blue it quit working completely. The sensing and washing lights light up, but when it goes to the next step of just washing nothing happens. The soap dispenser door opens and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It wasn't making any irregular noises, unless I'm just used to them since it came with the house. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that's just over 1 year old and I use it a couple times a week. I turned it on last night and went in another room. appox 30 minutes later my daughter came in and noticed the soap suds all over the kitchen floor, the inside was all sudzy. It was in the wash cycle so I turned it off just by opening the door for overnight and restarted this morning and after about 20 minutes (still in the wash cycle) the suds started oozing out so I that's where I'm at now. Thanks.

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.


Your door switch is likely faulty and should be replaced. You can get them at partselect.com ... Dishwashers

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.


This is the heated dry timer going through the drying cycle until the dishes are dry. The dry cycle runs on a timer and it will click through the cycle until it finishes the amount of time preset on the timer to dry the dishes. ... Maytag MDB9100A Dishwasher
