We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

Hi I am in an emergency situation with an ikea whirlpool dishwasher. I have no idea what model it is since it's built in and I can't find the manual in my rental apartment. The machine works normally until the part where it's supposed to pump the water out after rinsing. At this point it starts to beep, once, and then 3 times. On and on and on. If I open it, there is water stagnated there. If I try to turn it off and back in, it will go through a whole new program and then I get the same problem

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old. With cost of replacement motor and possible part (pump?) that might have clogged and caused motor freeze up, is it worth fixing or junk

Our dishes smell like vomit after they have dried. We run them through the dishwasher, they seem to smell okay. Then when Dry, the smell returns. We have tried vinegar and tang rinses to no avail. We have turned up the heat of our water to scalding, that hasn't helped. We have disconnected drain hose and there is no smell there. What can we do to get rid of this awful smell? There is no food in any filters, heating element is clean except for some hard water stains. We have a whirlpool 575-0 qu

Hi. IKEA Whirlpool DWFA10 dishwasher.Firstly, when switching on the machine to befin the programme the machine does not pump residual water away.It then begins its cycle (in this case the pre-rinse cycle).After 12 or so minutes,when the cycle finishes and the water should be pumped away,the machine stops and the green warning light keeps flashing 4 times intermitantly.

I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area, the whole bottom is covered with water. This is after running a normal cycle with no other options such as sanitize or heat dry. I called Lowes, the store that sold/installed it, and they said this is normal in new dishwashers to keep the parts wet. They said as long as the water does reach th

I have an LG dishwasher, model LDS 5811ww. The machine fills with water, then stops filling when the error code IE comes on. I have cleaned the inlet filter and the whole inside of the tub, by taking apart the sump filter. There is good water pressure filling the tank. When I turn off the power and restart any cycle, the pump will empty the tank, then begin filling the tank again...until it is stopped by the error code IE again coming on. The other thing I notice is the water level in the tub.

I have a slimline dishwasher from Ikea. The model is Whirlpool DWH C10 W manual. Everything worked fine up until the other day when I switched the machine on and it made a noise as if it was working but nothing happens.

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

My pressure washer starts fine, shoots water OK. After running for 5-10 minutes cleaning siding I shut off machine. I go to start it again within a minute or two and the thing feels like it's just about seized. If i wait until the motor is completely cool, it will pull start freely and start right up. I think something is wrong with the pump, not the engine.


Your pressure washer may not have an ez-start valve installed from the factory. Without the ezstart valve, you will need to hold the trigger on the wand open to release the pressure to easily start your engine. This link will show you wh ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

Often had to press 'Start' up to 5 times to get it going. All lights light up but then go out. Occasionally the pump would run for a minute or so then whole shooting match would close down. Recently we were lucky and it filled with water but sadly disappointed when it closed down again. 8 people in the house so had to do the dishes in the sink (again!!). Plenty of helpers and a glass or two of wine so things weren't that bad. Not good for Dishlex though especially when others say theirs are

I have a Whirlpool DU920PFGQ1 installed in the house I recently purchased. There is a gross smell coming from it, and based on other things have I found in the house, I believe that the previous owner didn't do much maintenence. Is there a filter or screens that could be clogged? The inside of the machine is gross; running vinegar through it has not helped. Can you point me in the direction of an owners manual?

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!
