Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Dishlex Global 500 dishwasher (DX500lWW*b). Woke up the other night to find water all over my kitchen floor. The hot water hose connector to the hot water tap split (bursted). The dishwater was not in operation at the time but I can only assume when the hose bursted the dishwater came on to alert me? the code on the dishwater is displaying ''oF'' - which means Incorrect fill level of fill time. I have consequently had the hose connector repaired but the display still has the code ''oF''

\015\012"Hi - answer I was given by Electrolux Help was: pull machine out from under bench onto old towel, tip GENTLY onto left hand side (your left as you face the front of the machine) after it has drained, stand up gently, put back & turn on. Apparently it is the overflow trough reading as full ('oF' Overflow). Then run through some dishwasher descaler or Finish dishwasher cleaner. Worked for me."

Jackson jp-24b purchased this machine used, cant figure out how to work it. I flip the auto cycle on, and then the power switch. The fill light turns green and i assume water is filling up in the machine. In the meantime there are two small red external hoses that hot water comes and i currently just have those hanging in the sink. At the same time, nothing is happening during the wash cycle, the wash gauge doesnt even move only the rinse gauge. Also when i try to drain it nothing happends (begi

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water needing to heat up for the cycle to advance. When I check the water that is left in the tub it is warm but not hot. The heating element is not hot either. I did a continuity test on the heating element and it seems to check out ok. I also did a continuity test on the red wire from the heating e

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

I have a lx30h dishwasher and the problem is that when i turn it on the first time,normally it should fill the sump and wait to fill after it has reached 166 deg .so whats happening now is that it fills only 2 seconds and tries to heat the water but there is not enough to water so the element gets hot and the high limit does it's job.what do you think of my problem.i have never seen that before good luck and i can't wait to have the answer best regards sylvain ouellet

I set up a drip system years ago and now am looking to replace it (old, worn, leaks) but the problem is this-I can't push any fitting (be it connectors, tees, etc) onto the main hose. Both hose and fittings are 1/2''. The fittings in the original system were not near as difficult to use-I also tried hot water (fittings) and ice water (hose), nothing. Is there any size difference between the old and new components?


It's not really a solution-it seems there are two sizes OD (.700", .620") both called 1/2" tubing. The appropriate sized fittings must therefore be used ... Raindrip R333CT Swivel Tee Adapter

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

KitchenAid dishwasher KUDS24SEBL does not drain after rinse. It goes through wash cycle, drains water completely , then it fills water for rinsing, runs and after that it does not drain. Cancel does not work after that. Water is very hot inside the tuba t that time. The dishwasher needs to be left for an hour or so before the cancel button can drain the water out.

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out.

Our Asko 3530 dishwasher is giving us a 'water inlet fault' code. The machine goes through the pre-drain at cycle start then begins to fill, continues until it's full then kicks out the fault code. I have changed the inlet valve, reset the system to factory default and taken off the lower front panel, finding the overflow area to be dry. Is it time to call for service or is there something else to try before spending the big bucks?


Hi,This sounds like either the overflow sensor or the water control valve is stuck.Usually the valve is a solenoid valve that controls the entrance and fill of the water. If the overflow sensor is underneath, there may be wate ... Asko 24 in. D3530FI Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher (Enr SMS53E12GB/01 FD 9002) bought in July 2010. Error code 15 and "Check Water Supply" light on at same time. Have checked in-line filter in tap connection and all clear, water pressure OK, no kinks/twists in supply hose. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'll have to call Customer Service in the end as it's outside of my problem-solving ability, but would like to check whether there's a known reset or fix I can try before I call.

My dishwasher will start any program, it drains, fills, empties & beeps continually within a few minutes. The rinse light stays on until the machine is turned off & re-set.

Having removed item he cleaned, it looks fine and appears to switch OK. Not sure if its actually faulty. Is the themperature sensor

I have a GE GSD2000J01WW Dishwasher in a building with low water pressure. The inlet hose is 3/8" OD. The heating coil gets too hot and gives off a bad odor as there is not enough water at start up. Is there a way or a replacement part that can be used to change the timing of the heater and wash cycles, etc.? Thanks

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

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.
