Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hi I have a Jenair JDB1090AWS Dishwasher, that seems to be in locked mode (flashes 5 times when I press the start buttom). I tried holding the Heated Dry down for 3 seconds like it says in the manual but nothing happens. I even cut power to the dishwasher for > 30sec, still no joy. The dishwasher is still locked. How do I unlock it? Chuck Olson

Hello Chuck,. When these appliances work like they are supposed to they are great....... that being said lets see if we can unlock your dishwasher.

\015\012Since the heated dry button doesn't unlock it, lets try the energy saver button.
Hold it down for a good long 4 seconds. If that doesn't work try each button in sequence, 4 seconds per hold until it unlocks.

\015\012The control touchpads can be locked to prevent
unwanted use. If this feature is activated between
cycles, the dishwasher cannot be operated until the
controls are unlocked. If desired, the controls can be
locked after a cycle or delay has started.
Setting the Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will
illuminate when the controls are locked.
To Cancel:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off.

Notes
• If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the
controls have been locked, the indicator light next
to the lock graphic will flash five times. On
selected models with a countdown display, the
display will flash an “L” simultaneously with the
lock indicator.
• This option does not lock the door, only the
dishwasher controls.\015\012

I have an old (not sure what year, 80s?) Kitchen Aid energy saver V Custom by Hobart dishwasher. We opened the dishwasher in the middle of a cycle and now cannot get it to re-start. When we lock it back up and push our normal buttons (Low Energy and Energy Saver/Dry Heat Off) or any other combination of buttons, the dial does not turn automatically and the cycle does not continue. I have also tried advancing the dial manually and still, nothing happens. I have even tried advancing it all the

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support

My dishwasher is SHU 3000 series and over 10 years old. The problem is SUDS that will not go away. I have used on-line methods such as vinegar. I have gone through 6 bottles of "Dishwasher Magic" and have put it through cycles not using soap over 30 times and am still getting suds even at the end of the rinse cycle. I have called a local repairman and he says he cannot help me..that I should continue running the dishwasher time after time till the water is w/o suds. Any help for me?

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button.

Our dishwasher beeps twice when the start button is pressed but then doesn't do anything and there is no other noise from anywhere (eg, motor/pump).

We have turned the dishwasher off and on at the wall, checked/cleaned all filters, drained the dirty water and still nothing happens (it doesn't even fill

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

When I hit the start button on my dishwasher nothing happens. It still "finishes" the cycle but nothing ever cuts on. It doesnt fill with water and the sump pump never engages to drain the water that's not there. Any ideas?

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks

The power cord in my install kit for the Kenmore 1344 dishwasher, isnt color coded. The power cord is 3 leads of course but the manual says nothing about which lead to connect to the color coded wires coming from the DW. halp?


It does not matter what lead goes to the white or the black. You just need to make sure that you have the ground in the right place. If it is a flat cord then the center wire is the ground and if it really matters the lead on the right of the ground ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Drying problem Hi Our 3-day old LG dishwasher is not able to dry our dishes. After the cycle is finished 2 hours later, I open the door to find that water is everywhere. As if the washer is skipping the dry sequence completely. The "vent" on the inside of the door doesn't seem to have an outlet--why is this a vent if nothing can escape? The owner's manual says to use a rinse aid to help drying. I don't believe in using band-aid's; something else is wrong. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks,

I just bought a Whirlpool quiet partner II and it's leaking. It appears to be coming from a dome shaped thing at the front of the basin. It only leaks when the dishwasher stops and there is water in the basin. It appears to be a valve of some sort but i can't tell. Nothing in the manual even mentions what this thing is. Any ideas?
