Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher overflows I have a Maytag PDB3600AWX dishwasher. The pump works well, pumps all water out of the tub when reaching the appropriate cycle state. However, it keeps taking in water when it's not running / turned on (e.g., overnight) and the tub starts overflowing, cuasing obvious leakages (to the basement). What part needs to be replaced? Thanks, C Artz

Sounds like you've got a problem with the water intake valve(s). If it takes on water without water running in the sink, that is where I would look. If it happens when you use the sink, then I would also check your drain hose placement

Dishwasher keeps running I have a Bosche dishwasher and the water keeps running. As long as we run it and don't stop it, the pump will continue to drain about every 3 minutes. The water just keeps running though. If we open it to empty the dishes, the cycle will stop. But the water keeps running, filling the tub, and then overflows, flooding the kitchen and drains through our wood floors to the basement below. Our ASKO seems to have a similar problem. I started the dishwasher, and the water ke

I have a GE GSD3200 dishwasher about 6 years old, which had been working well until this past week. When turned to 'start' the motor runs but no water fills the tub. I then poured 4-5 pots of hot water into the tub and tried to re-start. As soon as it was turned to 'start', I could hear all of the water draining out. How bad does this sound :) ?

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

I have an Electrolux ESI 6104x. Regularly just after starting the dishwasher as it starts to fill for the first time the water inlet cuts out. If you turn the water off at the mains disconnect the inlet pipe (spilling a bit of water in the process) reconnect the inlet pipe and turn the water back on the dishwasher fills and runs perfectly. This fault used to happen occasionally and now happens regularly.


Disconnect the fill pipe from the back of the machine and you should see a small mesh strainer in side the dishwashers inlet valve. Check that this is not dirty - to clean it pull out the strainer and rinse under the tap. ... Dishwashers

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.
