Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The dishwasher seems to of got stuck on its cycle. when we turn it on it hums quietly but won't do anything else. Any ideas?


Answers :

I assume you have a knob that turns and that is how you turn it on and have it go through it's cycles??? If that is the case there is a small motor that after you turn the d/w on continues to rotate the knob and makes your d/w go through it's cycle. It sound likr the small gear that the motor uses to drive the timer is stripped. Probably need new timer.

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise.

Hi. Got a dishwasher from IKEA - Whirlpool DWH B00. It wont run anymore, 2 years old. It just wont start up, it starts to give a beep, and the solution is to press the <|> button for 2 sec, then restart it. But it still wont start. I've cleaned all filters, checked for water on board underneath, and given it some salt - no luck. Any ideas?

My dishwasher so my dishwasher seemed to have quitworking during a cycle. like breaker triped or something. i checked the breaker and thats fine. it seams like its hard wired in though. Would that be right? and is there a fuse or something that could/would blow during a wash? I dont know what model it is or anything it was in the house when i got it. The dishwasher is built in and it seems decently old its a kenmore ultra wash and it has like 10 buttons for the differend cycles on the left and a

Greetings! My Bosch SHE3305UC/UC12 has worked faithfully until last week when we had to pull it out of its home to retile the floor. Upon reconnecting all of the connections, it no longer works properly. The initial drain cycle works, so the flood switch is fine. But after draining, it just quietly hums. The test cycle actually seems to move to the next step for about 30 seconds, before also just humming. I'm thinking I need to check the valve, but not sure how to do it on this mod

I have a bosch SHU6802UC dish washer. Recently the cycles were getting very long (3+ hours) and now when you press power/start, the unit turns on and you can hear the rather loud hum (pump?) of the cycle starting but it does not do anything else, just continues the loud hum.

I have a older Simpson 880 Dishwasher, 6 program, (circa 1995) that I got second hand. It works quite well, but due to its usage the dial which has the program on it has worn and is very difficult to read. so what I need I suppose is another program dial or someone who can tell me via a photo what is marked on a dial you can actually read as mine is worn off and is for the most part indecipherable.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Whirlpool dishwasher Clean light is flashing, we just bought it last week and after the third wash, the Clean light started flashing and it won't go off, which stops it from doing anything else. User manul says to have it serviced, but that seems unneccessary. It doesn't seem to be draining completely, so there may be a knk in the pipe, which may be related, just not sure

Hi, I've got a GE dishwasher (model GSD3207P00WW) which is making a horrible grinding noise... it still seems to work, however, it's loud enough that my girlfriend is terrified the machine is going to explode/light on fire/burn the house down/etc... It seems to happen intermittently (although lately it's been worse) and generally only goes on for about 2 minutes, around 2-3 times during each cycle. Any ideas?
