My smeg dwi 710 dishwasher keeps flashing on the diplay panel and won't change to another wash selection. it wont close and wont start. the light is stuck on the heaviest wash selection and just keeps flashing on and off and on and off. i have tried turning it off, keeping buttons held down and nothing seems to work. there is nothing in the manual that says what the flashing means so i dont know how to fix it.

I am not happy with the racks in my new Bosch dishwasher! The bottom rack is not right! The silverware basket is in the back right corner and the silverware catches on the seal on door and it is hard to get to. The tongs are two close together and point the wrong way? The upper rack's tongs are also to close together also. I don't seem to be able to get larger dishes in with these tongs in the way. Having never used the mdl 9000359119 Rev B I had no idea.

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

I have a Kenmore Elite-not sure where to find the model number but the manual lists 665.160524, 1650594, 160534, 170524, etc. the problem is that the top dishes are not being washed. nothing is blocking the arm from spinning. Should water be coming down from the top? It doesnt appear that it is. Nothing seems to be reaching these dishes

Our 16 year old dishwasher takes way longer to finish cycles, has become very loud and now no longer cleans the dishes - especially the top rack and the silverware. We have hard water and I have run it with vinegar in a bowl 3 times and have been cleaning all the deposits I can today. It doesn't seem to be draining out all the gunk. Water flow seems ok, the arms have nothing blocking them. Any instructions for me to follow to clean out the mechanisms? Or has it run its lifespan... Thanks!


Parts are no longer available for your dishwasher. Typically - manufactures end support after 10 years.Your hard water deposits will never come all the way out. They will be "clean" for a month or so until another calcium chunk breaks free and ... Dishwashers

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

My top drawer of my Fisher and Paykel dish washer wont close tight. It seemed to be jammed and not closing unless it was pushed closed hard and then it jumped a bit now wont close tight and has no resistance at all. If I hold it closed and start it it will run but I think the lids not closing tight?

Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher. This worked fine until the door catch broke. I replaced the catch but could not remember which way round the two electrical leads went (red and black). I tried both ways with the same result. The lights come on the control panel and I can change the programme, but on closing the door the house fuses blow. I have checked the earth cable is fine. Any ideas?

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

My soap cap remains in the closed position at all times. The clasp mechanism works fine, if I cycle through with the door open I can see and hear the catch release when it should. But the door remains closed at all times. I leave it open to run, and sometimes it's closed when the wash cycle finishes! Is there an easy way to take the cap off and clean it? Or do I need to WD-40 around it?
