Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Kenmore model 665. It is having an intermittent problem. It goes through the fill cycle, and then stops. Timer does not progress either. Then, at some random moment, it will come back on and finish the entire cycle. This could even be a day or two later. Sometimes it seems a nearby thump will set it off, other times no one is anywhere near it when it comes back on. This happened for a month or so off and on 6 months ago, and then it worked fine for 6 months. Now it's back to it.


Answers :

Its possible its a door switch thats causing this or the main wire is loose..be careful as you do have 115 volts. i'd turn off power and check where power comes into d/.w and make sure the wire nuts are tight.. the next step is a little more difficult. you need to get into control housing area and check for loose or bad wiring. find , locate, repair, or replace switch if bad..

A few days ago the dish washer was running fine, maybe a single wash every day. Then, out of no were the logic seems to have left the machine. If you pressed the "normal cycle" button it would blink for about 30 to 45 seconds then the front panel would go blank. All LED lights would turn off, like it finished doing the diskes, never running a single cycle. I unplugged the machine to let all circuits reset, that worked for two days, two washes in that time. Today I'm back to a machine that will n


Your control panel is faulty and will have to be replaced. This is the main brain of the machine. Normally when a cycle doesn't start the timer is bad, but when your control panel doesn't do anything, then it is faulty. ... Dishwashers

Good morning. I have a KitchenAid KUDM01TJ with a constantly flashing "Rinse" light. when I hit the "Cancel" button, it too flashes in the same time with the Rinse light. I left the machine alone, came back a few days later and saw that the issue had resolved itself - but I didn't use the machine. A few days later, the "Rinse" light was flashing again and naturally, I hit "Cancel" to see if the same thing happened and it did. This time the lamps are still flashing. I read through the other repo

Kenmore dishwasher 16934 will not start up for me. I can push any button to set the cycle(pots & pans, china gentle, quick rinse, normal wash) and the time shows up in the display, but when I push the start, two red horizontal lines appear in the time remaining display. Cannot get the machine to start anything. All cycle buttons give me some kind of time remaining display but as I said, it ends up with 2 red lines. Thanks in advance. Mark

Siemens aquaVario I have a 2007 (?) Siemens Aquavario Automatic 3 in 1 dishwasser. One of the programs got stuck with 1 minute at the timer. It was running like this most likely for more then one hour over the normally scheduled time; we don't know for sure since we were out of the house. It produced some sort of 'sucking / blowing' sound and continued doing so after I opened and closed the door again. After the reset (pushing two buttons at the same time) the timer went back to zero but the sou

When starting my Bauknecht GSFP 5586 dishwasher the program is set for rinsing and the start light flashes two blinks, then again two blink etc. I cannot get the program to change. When I hold the Start button for 2 seconds, the progress light flashes at END for a moment then reverts back to the double blink sequence. I have checked the filter and it is well seated and clean. What can I do to start the program selection again?

I have an electronic operating Kitcheaid Dishwasher. It has a tendency to stop in the middle of a cycle without warning. This can happen at different times of the day and at different stages of washing. We open the door, make sure the racks are pushed in tight and close and hold the door tight for a few moments. The dishwaser comes back on, but this can repeat in the course of one wash.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quit Partner III, model GU1100XTLB1. When I run the normal cycle it functions well until near the end. At that time the unit stops and the pots&pans indicator light blinks.

Washes for 5 seconds then stops, then starts again intermittently First the heating element started to turn on during the cycle. I never used it before. I changed the setting to unselect Hi Temp Wash but don't remember if it was selected before. The next day the dishwasher filled as usual, washing started for about 4 seconds, then stopped for aroud 10 seconds. The start/stop cycle repeated about 4 times, then all lights went off and nothing more happened.

My bosch dishwasher runs fine, cleans fine, drains fine....but after it has been just sitting for a while, the bottom very slowly fills up with water. Each time we run the machine the water level drains back to the normal amount in the bottom of the washer after the cycle is complete. The problem is if we are away for a few days, the bottom fills up and overflows onto the floor.

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot
