My Maytag PDB3600AWX isn't working. The motor hums as if its working but no water is in the tub. I did put a pitcher of water in the tub to see if it would pump out and it does. I don't know what else to check for. We have had lots of problems with this dishwasher, its never washed the dishes well and has flooded my kitchen to the point of having to replace flooring. I thought its was because we had just had new flooring installed and when they put the dishwasher back in the counter the hose was

DWI612C wash cycle runs on and on and on. Believing to be a problem with water heating I tried putting a couple large pan fulls of boiling water into machine during wash cycle and this did move it on from wash to rinse. How do I replace the heating element I cant see it it is not in the dish washing compartment? I dont want to call out a repair agent as one can probably buy a new machine for what that will cost. Thank you.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. 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

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

Hi. I have a Frigidaire dishwasher model # pld2855rfc3. It makes a loud humming noise throughout the washing cycle. The noise isn't continuous but happens off & on about 5 times. The spray arms are clear of dishes. Do you know what may be causing the machine to make this noise? I really appreciate your time in helping me. Thank you. Kelly

Kenmore Tumble Action Washer, Model 417,44152400 LEAK! Leaky Door got progressively worse over a month. I replaced the boot and about 10 minutes into the first test wash there was a massive leak under the soap dispenser and down the hinge side of the door during a fill cycle that seemed to be going through the dispenser. This happened again during another fill through the dispenser. No leaks during subsequent fill through the boot hose, before the spin cycle and no leaks around the door

Both dish drawers emit loud wails ( almost siren like) when started. Repairmen have not figured it out. It happened in the lower dishdrawer first and the impeller was replaced. This did nothing. Now the top drawer makes even louder noise when the wash cycle seems to start.

I recently replaced the chopper in my whirlpool quiet partner III. now it won't drain. I can push the cancel drain button and hear the pump running, but nothing happens. I tried reversing the wires to see if I had switched them around when I was trying to figure out why it wasn't cleaning the dishes and that didn't work either. I checked the hose for cloggs and nothing. I am left scratching my head. model # gu1200xtkt0

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

I have a Bosch dish washer model SHX 43 M 0 ZUC / 48 FD 8709 00169 The dish washer is about 1 1/4 years old and was installed by a plumber as part of a Home Depot kitchen remodel. The problem is draining. The quick wash does not drain at the end of the wash. The regular wash sometimes drain and sometimes does not. The auto wash does drain. The lack of draining does not cause problems with the regular wash cycle. I checked the drain hose re the instruction manual and it is correctly installed.

I am replacing the drain hose on my LG Dishwasher LDS5811BB. The new hose they gave me has an additional piece connected onto the hose. I don't know what it is or what it is for. The original drain hose was composed soley of a gray hose with the to end connectectors. This new hose is similar with an additional white, hard plastic, U-shaped hose with a black hose extending off the end of the U-shaped end. Is this an air gap extension, and if so, what do I connect it to or can I cap it off?

After washing dishes it will not drain? My garbage disposal was broken, I just replaced it with a new one. We have done two or three loads of dishes since then, but now it's will not draining after the wash cycle? is my pump clogged, or broken? Can I just hit a reset button ?

When I fill up both soap dispensers, only one is empty after the wash. The cover never releases the other soap. It says fill both and then cover the right side. But after the dishes are washed - the covered side is still full of soap. I've used both powder and liquid. Anybody know what to do? It is an older (don't know how old) early 80's maybe.
