Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Door has become stiff in operation and does not move up and down smoothly. is there an adjustment?


Answers :

Most of the time the dishwasher door hinges are located on the framing at the bottom of the unit behind the kick plate. There should be a spring on either side with a series of small holes in the bottom framing. Move this spring closer to the door for less tension, further away for greater tension.

Hotpoint Model HDA 3500N 10 BB Unit is only about a year old. The dial does not move. I noticed it when the washer was on for more than 3 hours and saw that the dial was still in the middle of the wash cycle. I then turned it to the rince cycle which operated there (not moving) until I manually moved it to dry. Did not move from there either. Thank you for any help you can give me.

We have just moved into this unit fitted with a MIDEA WQP12 - 9011B dishwasher with NO MANUAL. What can we do ? We have been using the dishwasher by turning the operating KNOB to a position and pushing in the POWER KNOB. The machine then goes through a cycle of 80 to 100 minutes but without an USER OPERATING MANUAL, we have no idea of whether the dishwasher is being operated correctly.

The Hom Model No. 308653045 gas-operated cold-water pressure washer has a spring-loaded control on it and I am assuming that this control regulates the output pressure of the water from the pump . . . for example, 1500 psi to 2700 psi. Is it correct to assume that this control regulates the output pressure of the pump. If the control is a pressure regulator, how does one use it and, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, can one under-adjust or over-adjust the control to a point where THE CONTROL OR THE PUM

My Dishlex Global 450 leaks, I have narrowed it down to the door seal and have replaced this. It appears to overfill during it's operation BUT not evry time? Sometimes it soaks the floor other times no leaks at all. How do you adjust the level the water fills up to during operation?


Mine did the same thing. I cleaned the door seals, mostly the bottom one which collected a lot of grime & didn't provide a solid seal.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

I have a GE Front load HE washer that is on the manufacture?s pedestal. The machine moves excessively during the cycle and becomes no longer balanced tilting to the right front by as much as 3 inches. I have had three service calls, no solutions, recommendations of a) get rid of the riser, b) I should move it from the main floor (sitting on ceramic tile) to the basement on concrete, c) bolt it to the floor, d) remove ceramic tile and have it sitting on a wood platform. What do you recommend?

The dishwasher was recently removed for floor refinishing and reinstalled. The bottom rotor works but the top rotor does not. I asked the re-installer, who worked for the moving company, if he had connected everything properly and he said there was just one water line going into the machine and assured me he had connected it properly. Is there something else that needs to be done to make the top rotor operational? Thanks. John M
