Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


Answers :

I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwasher supply line should be connected to the left water pipe.\015\012
\015\012Regardless, the water temperature doesn't fully explain the symptoms, especially the detergent left in the door (assuming you're using fresh detergent and it's not caking in the door prior to washing).\015\012
\015\012I would check the blades again. Even thought they may appear clean, there may be debris in them that get forced into the openings during operation, but fall away from the openings when the water flow stops. Remove the blades, run water into them, then invert them to drain while rocking back and forth. If there's crud in them, you may need to do this several times.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

Normal wash cycle- tub fills (?), then comes a loud hummmm and nothing happens. I noticed water level didn't reach heater coil and added water until limiter switch clicked. Still just a loud hummmm. Machine was well into its regular cycle when this first occurred, but now, won't even get past initial fill. Pushing the "Cancel/drain" button activates motor and pump: they work fine.

Cycles improperly My dishwasher does not cycle properly. It races through the cycles, even when set to pots & pans, in about ten minutes. At first I thought it not filling properly, checked the fill switch, it's fine and water does come in. Then when it's finished it does not always drain completely. I have checked everything on the drain end as well. It seems to have a mind of it's own. I replaced the $145 computer control with no luck. It actually sped up from the original 16 minute ful

My Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (665.16499300) will not fill with water on the Normal Wash. It sounds like it's going through the cycle, but there's no water.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water.

I have an Asco D3350 dishwasher. When the cycle starts the machine fills with water and when there appears to be the right amount of water in the machine an error code F4 shows on the panel. 3 clicks can be heard during the first 5 seconds of the F4 code showing. If I cancel the cycle and start it again it pumps out the water and then fills again and the code returns. Any ideas?

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.
