Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Kenmore dishwasher 587.15163401 won't fill. I checked the float switch with my multimeter and it's working properly. It's registering zero when I touch the terminals and 1 when I activate the switch. On this particular washer, how do I access the water inlet valve to check it for debris and also to check the solenoids? Also on this particular washer, how do I access the drain valve and solenoid. Can you tell me if this is a single direction motor or reversing motor. As I understand


Answers :

The problem was the water fill valve. When set to Ohms, the multimeter never would read zero indicating a problem with the water fill valve. I replaced the part and it works now. Be sure to turn your water off under the sink before taking it off to replace it.

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

Won't drain I'm helping my daughter long distance,their dishwasher won't drain. I had her remove the course strainer to check the well for debris. She said she cannot get in it because the sprayer is in the way. How is the sprayer removed to access the drain well in the Maytag DWU dish washer?


In most cases the blockage is at the end of the drainhose, where it connects th the "peatrap", simply removing the hose clamp, then hose and inspecting. If no blockage found there you will need assistance. If you want, you can funnel your hand over t ... Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher

Got a lound buzz type noise that I thought was a bad solenoid on the water valve. Tub also filled up & overflowed1 Replaced water valve ($30), but now dishwasher wont run thru cycles or fill with water to wash--seems to be stuck on drain even though digital counter counts down. What should I check next?


You may have dislocated the connection that controls the AquaStop circuit.\015\012\015\012This is linked to the inlet hose. Either the connector linking the inlet tap to the inlet valve is loose or the float switch has triggered.\01 ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

My GE Nautilus DW doesn't fully drain. When it is drained as much as it will it leaves water in the sump at the rear right. If you run the pump at that point, it sucks water out of the sump, but when you open the door and the pump stops water flows back into it. It seems like there is a check valve that isn't working. I have cleaned the sump and the screen which runs accross the rear. I also have taken the plunger out and cleaned it. Then I took the housing for the plugner off the bottom. I don'

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


Hi\015\012\015\012The hum sound indicates a bad motor and it should be\015\012replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.\015\012\015\012Daniel ... Dishwashers

MAYTAG MDBH979AWS DOES NOT SEEM TO FILL WITH WATER, AND HAS STOPPED CLEANING THE DISHES..My husband took everything apart and we cleaned each piece and put it back together , there was no indication that anything was clogged, and he was able to determine that water was coming in to the washer, but dishes are still dirty. There seems to be soap residue on the bottom of the tub. We also check to see if it was draining properly and that was fine also. Any other suggestions?

Hi. We have a Bosch 4072 6301 which is about 9 years old and has always worked well. Recently is has begun to leave dishes unclean, particularily on the top shelf but also on the bottom. I have checked the water jets for blockages, checked the drain (as far as it is accessible). The heating element stills works as there is steam when the door is opened. If I open in the middle of the cycle I can see water coming out of the jets correctly, I can't tell if the pressure is correct. Any th

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

I had a draining problem, clogged line, fixed. Does the small in line rubber valve under the dishwasher in the transition piece to the hose have any real need to go back? and which direction it is cupped slightly. Also are there any assembly instructions? I cant seem to get it back quite right, or a white washer has split. not sure which.

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

Just installed an estate TUD6710S and on the first run it is leaking from the check valve. It is leaking from the pump side of the valve. There isn't any leak where I have the drain connected. I do not have a garbage disposal, so, there's not a problem there. The drain connection is 20" from the sub-floor... don't know what else to check.

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.

(pump model mtpv93517) The check valve kit Briggs and Stratton # 193806gs I ordered was correct from but the check valves are too tall to seat into the output manifold and be flush when reinstalling. Did I order the wrong check valve kit or is there another problem?
