Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher smells as though the wiring is burning when it is on the dry cycle. (There is also a very faint odour while cleaning as well.) Any ideas as to what may be causing this. I can't see anything on looking underneath while the thing is operating


Answers :

Make sure that you don't have the heat dry cycle on. The element gets hot and if it was not used for a while, will give off an odor. Other than that, there may be some moisture on some connections which may cause it too. But I thinks it is more likely the first suggestion.

I have a Fridgidaire Dishwasher, supplied new in a home purchased in 2004. Model FDB126RBB1. During the last two weeks I've been seeing a heavy scum on everything which will show it easily, like plastic glasses. No food particles or anything of that nature, just not getting clean. Sure that it's on all the rest, but can't see it so well. I've heard such a thing can be caused by a faulty inlet valve. Where is that and how do I test for it? Are there any other reasonable places to look for a

The latch won't engage, so the door won't close. Obviously, this means the machine won't operate. We have removed the racks, checked the hinges to see if anything is lodged there and looked to see if anything is in the unit preventing the door from closing. Could the latch be broken? If so, what is involved in the repair?

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any i

I have a Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher that stopped working mid-cycle. I had to sponge out all the water. Now none of the buttons do anything and none of the lights come on. When I turn it on at the power outlet it gives a single beep, but I cant get it to do anything else. I've opened it up and there is no water or dampness anywhere inside. Any ideas?

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

I have a Maytag MDB7600AWB dish washer. I have a door leak, dripping from the right side. I can not see anything that would allow it. It seems like it could be coming from the inside of the door. Also, there is heat and condensation on at the top of the door, above the leak. It could be that steam is coming from the top right and dripping down the door. Could you give me some idea about fixing the problem.


HI,Check for the following troubleshooting steps:Some leaking around-under-from the door on dishwashers can be traced back to a split in the spray arm. If the lower spray arm develops a split in it, the spray arm can turn too ... Maytag 24 in. MDB7600A Jetclean® II Built-in Dishwasher

When the diswasher is running I will hear a pop and see a spark jump out of the bottom of the door. It trips the circuit breaker. If I reset the breaker it will operate for about 20 to 30 minutes and do the same thing.

The upper and lower dish drawers leaves a puddle of water under each (maybe 6" in diameter) after the shortest cycle. There is a small amout of water left in the clear protective housing on the underside of the upper drawer. There is a hole at the bottom of the housing that lets the water out. Maybe there is a slightly loose hose? If so how do you get the housing off and tighten it? I presume the lower drawer may be doing the same thing, but I can't see it with out removing the drawer.

Bimetal fuse The incoming power was blinking off and on due to a storm, it caused the bi metal fuse to fail in the dishwasher when it was not operating, the fuse was replaced with kit #w10258275, now two weeks later the fuse has failed again while operating.These fuses are expensive, I would like to know the value (amps) of these fuses so that the system can checked to try and find out the reason for failure, or maybe you might have an idea where to start.

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?

I have a HD 2701 DR pressure washer that starts and runs fine and usually works fine the "first" time but if you let go of the trigger and then try to use it again you just get a trickle out of the end of the wand. Usually if you hold the thing open for a while it will kick in (sometimes it takes forever...). Any ideas? It sounds like some of the "unloader valve" problems are similar but I do not see an "unloader valve" in the parts lists for the 2701...

Hi, switch underneath our miele g646sc washing machine burnt out. It is situated in a round case, with a polystyrene disc above it. The whole of this plastic case, abour 3" dianeter is clipped under the main body of the machine. Do you know what this one does so that we can try and rectify any problem that has caused the burnout, and any idea of part number or where we can see an exploded part drawing? Thanks! Steve

HE error My LG LD-14aw1 is showing HE error code - Heater Circuit is troubled???. (Not as much as owner!!!). I have repaired several dry solder joints in the control module, which have been causing various operating failures, but the HE problem has got me stumped. Can anyone provide me with a wiring diagram of the machine and or the control module? I'd like to trace the heater circuit to see if I can find the fault. Many thanks

I have a BOSCH 8280 dishwasher which at the end of its cycle still has soapy water in the bottom of the machine. The dishes, and especially the cutlery, are left smeared and looking unfinished. I lifted out and cleaned the filter in the floor of the machine but the water still doesn't drain away. Are there any other filters etc which may be causing the problem? Any ideas. Thanks.

Dishwasher is making a loud grinding noise when it's started. Doesn't matter the cycle choice; the cycle starts as normal then once started up starts making a sort of grinding noise as the water is pulsing, like something is stuck or blocking the "push" of water. I couldn't see anything stuck in the bottom - any thoughts before I call a repair person? I've never owned a dishwasher before - maybe there's a basic drain/blockage thing I should check out first? And, any recommendations for repair

There seems to be an electrical fault in my dishwasher. It is a slimline candy dishwasher purchased only three years ago. Everytime I try to start it all the electricity goes in the downstairs of my house. I changed the fuse twice and it worked for a while only for the same thing to happen again. I also tried to turn off all other electical equipment downstairs to see if this made a difference, but it still didn't work. Would you have any idea what is wrong with it? Thanks. S. Byrne
