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.

Hi. I have a Siemens SE65E331GB Built in Dishwasher with an aquastop system. The problem is that it seems to be stuck at the end of a cycle. The pump is constantly running when stitched on. I won't top after a reset and it continues to run even if you open the door. The water supply light also comes on indicating that there is no water getting to the machine. I have tried resetting the aquastop as per the advice in other threads. This has helped in that the water supply light now stays

Re: Bosch Dishwasher Model SHX46B06UC/14 (year 2003) Good afternoon, I have water dripping into my dishwasher when it is not in use, approximately up to 1/2 inch over a few hours. The water collects at the bottom inside the dishwasher. I have to shut off the dishwasher water supply so that it does not overflow. Other than that, the dishwasher works perfect! Any idea as to what has to be replaced? Can I do it myself or do I have to call a technician. Thanks very much for your help.


HI. This type of issue will be the result of mechanical failure. This failure will be within the inlet assembly. Debris may be keeping the solenoid valve from closing correctly, thus, producing the steady drip a ... Dishwashers

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds. Then last week, the diswasher would shut off in mid cycle and all lights would turn off with water still in the dishwasher. Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the brea

Not getting enough water flow into the dishwasher, suspect that a filter is clogged due to recent work on the waterline in the kitchen sink. Need to know where the filter might be located (on the dishwasher or on the intake valve before the connection to the dishwasher hose)? Also would I need to disconnect the water supply to pull out the dishwasher for access to such a filter.


You didn't specify a brand but most dishwashers don't have a water "filter." They may have an inlet screen at the water valve, which is typically located under the dishwasher. Generally, the lower front panel will have to be removed and you should ... Dishwashers

I have a frigidaire built in dishwasher, about 5 years old. Model #FDBL960BB0. I had a clogged sink which caused my dishwasher to back up. Had the drain unclogged, went to start my dishwasher, it's making the regular cycle noise but is not filling with water. Is there some sort of safety switch that needs to be reset before it will fill with water?


Yes lift your float,,and drop back into place ... Dishwashers

Smeg e2 error (water level tripped). Filter is clean and no rubbish below filter on inside of dishwasher. I have taken the front panel off but am not sure where the float device is located - I am wondering if it is just to the left of what looks like a solenoid. There is no water in the base of the unit in the front panel so would rule out any leaks. Reset program and turned off power at socket but still not using hot water. Possible PCB issue ? Any advice appreciated. Smeg DI612C Dishwasher.

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.

I have a kenmore ultra wash quietguard deluxe & notice it has been connected to the hot water supply. As I am making some changes I would prefer to connect the cold water supply will this make any difference to the operation of the dishwasher. The unit is less than 2 years old. Thank you

All of a sudden, my Kenmore dishwasher (Model 363.1411691) will not cycle. When I lock it shut and try to set it to wash, all I hear is a click--no motor running, no water sounds. As I advance the timer knob, I just get clicks where each cycle should begin. There is standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher which does not drain out. Any advice would be much appreciated, for sure.


Hi.The clicks are simply the relays in the timer board that try switching on. The control module is likely working.The cycle does not start because of a different problem.If no light is coming on, then ensure that wall socket ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.


Your door switch is likely faulty and should be replaced. You can get them at partselect.com ... Dishwashers

Maytag Dishwasher I would like to know the proper water level after DW fills. Older Whirlpool units a quick guide was when water just covered heater. I have a new D/W and the water supply is difficult to access, there is a kink in the water line slowing the water flow. The D/W fills to bottom of heater, but because the unit is so quiet I can't determine if it is timing out or working properly. I intend to repair water line when counter work is done.

Newer Maytags should fill close or up to the heater not over. Sounds like your alright for now but I would get that water line fixed. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

How can I shut off the water supply to the dishwasher? It fills slowly with water from the top (while not running), and then water spills out over the kitchen floor. By pressing the 'Drain' button, the water will drain out, but I have to get to it before it floods. It takes about 4 hours for it to get to the overflow stage. It is a Jennair model, about 9 years old. We have a lot of limescale, it is probably time to replace it, but for the moment my main concern is to stop the leak. Thank you for
