Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our kenmore dishwasher... 8yrs old.least expensive model stopped draining. Husband tried fixing it and couldnt. Before we paid a repair man 75.00 dollars just to look at it...I shopped on craigslist.

Answers :

Only if you choose to think so. I have seen old equipment in better shape that much younger vintage stuff! It depends on how much use it has had and if it has been run to the max with heavy loads to the point of making the machine beat itself up prematurely.

When I press the start button, Bosch dishwasher (model SHY56A 05UC) just keep running the motor pumping the water out of dishwasher, irrespective of: 1) the wash cycle it is on, 2) whether the door is closed or open, 3) whether I cancel drain cycle, as told by Bosch Cust Svc in following steps: - "Cancel Drain" by pressing 'Quick Wash' and 'Regular Wash' buttons together for a minute until it shows 0* - Shut power off for a minute and wait for a minute - Restart on Quick Cycle.

My dishwasher recently started leaving a white, chalky residue on all the dishes. It wasn't gradual at all. One day everything was fine and all the dishes clean and the next they were covered in nasty residue. We've ruled out any issues with soap, rinse agents and hard water. A appliance repair guy came out and said the float was "tampered" with and said that he fixed it. He said that if the problem came back we need to order a new float assembly kit. My husband has looked at it several times an

Kenmore Elite I replaced most of my appliances 3 years ago with Kenmore Elite and I've had problems intermittently while the appliances were under warranty, but when the repair person arrives, no problem is detected. Once the appliance is no longer under warranty, the problem becomes persistent. At one point when I explained the difficulty, the technical support person said something to the effect of, "Oh that's an easy one to fix. All you need to do is...Oh wait, the warranty expired on the 3rd


Hmm, I'll start at the top :->. Well, first thing is that Kenmore doesn't manufacture any appliances. The only thing Sears has is the name recognition, therefore, they have GE, LG, Whirlpool, and others to make appliances for them and Kenmore s ...

I bought a Frigidaire Dishwasher on November 2006. Model #PLD4375RFCO. (I paid K&N Sales $549.00) In October 2008 I called your toll free Number to report Er code was flashing. You recommended Best Service. I called them and the repairman said the"vent was not closing - fault on Drying fan - vent is closed. Sensor bad on assembly." I needed a new drying fan assembly (for $148). With his service fee and labor after he returned to put in the new assembly, the total paid to Best service was $318.25

My dishwasher stays stuck on '1 minute', and will not complete the ccycle or drain the water. I tried to do another cycle on it, and it went to 8 minutes, and then jumped backl to 13 minutes, and repeated that pattern until I finally just opened it to stop it. I had one visit from a repairman last week, who said it could be a number of possibilities, and he charged me $75 and said he would return in a few days when he was not so busy. I am fairly handy, and if I knew exactly what part to replac

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.13773K600. It seems to have no power to the touch pad (top) control panel. I have already checked the circuit breaker and the power to the dishwasher. A friend said that it may perhaps be the thermo fuse cut out that needs to be replaced. 1) Is this true? 2) How can I remove the 1" thick control panel touch pad after removing the six screws- it seems to be stuck, and I don't want to break the plastic touchpad.

Unplugged from GFI and plugged into regular plug and it worked for a few days. Eventually stopped running. How wrong Miele was, it had everything to do with the dishwasher and not the GFI. It was only warning me a problem was coming. Appliance man came out, noticed water in bottom pan and order new pump, said seal probably gone. Came back, replaced the pump, put d

"sensing soak", "water heating" lights on for a long time, even though it appears that water is not being heated. Checked incoming water temp, is hot. Did not do this when new, something has changed. Typical cycle was 1 hr 10 min. before.


Sounds like the heater inside the dishwasher is not working. The machine is trying to get the water up to a preset temperature, probably in the neighborhood of 140 degrees. That is one of the things that it is sensing.After the machine fi ... Dishwashers

KitchenAid KUDPO1IL dishwasher has a buzzing noise during wash (and rinse?) cycles. Recently had to replace the top spinner (and connecting screw), as it had fallen off, but I think the noise was happpening before that. Today I re-clipped the flat pipe at middle back; one side had come loose. That might have helped a bit. Previously, I took out the bottom spinner and found a 1-2" string-like strip of gray nylon under that. I wanted to check a grinder, to see if something was trapped in that, but
