Dishwasher racks are falling apart from rust. I would like to replace them, but am confused as to what parts to buy. Also, do you know where to buy them? When I searched for replacements, it seems like by the time I finish buying all the replacement parts, I should just replace the entire dishwasher!

Frigidaire built in dishwasher model PLD2855RFC1. Have to wash dishes pretty much spotless prior to using dishwaser. Glasses come out with what appears to be soap residue regardless if powder or liquid. Did not use a gauge but water pressure in rest of house is good, recently replaced water heater, pressure regulator and just replaced the dish washer water source valve. Washer is about 18 months old, has never worked really well.

What could be causing white powdery residue on dishes, glasses & silverware? I have checked the heater element - seems to be hot, using Cascade powder as usual, we have and have had hard water, we do have a new water heater set on 'low' setting - temp of water measured at 113 deg at kit tap. This washer has worked well for 12 years, then white powdery residue. Thanks, Phil

My dishwasher makes a banging sound, I've checked the arm & even when the washers is empty it still makes that sound. NOW I've ALSO got a sound like a "clothes washer in spin cycle mode" also in the wash mode of my dishwasher. Do I need a service call or should I just replace it since it seems to be falling apart....it's only 2 yrs with min use

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,


First problem: The film on dishes and glasses. Try another detergent. Manufacturers removed all the phosphates from dishwasher detergents and there are many complaints.

Got a lound buzz type noise that I thought was a bad solenoid on the water valve. Tub also filled up & overflowed1 Replaced water valve ($30), but now dishwasher wont run thru cycles or fill with water to wash--seems to be stuck on drain even though digital counter counts down. What should I check next?


You may have dislocated the connection that controls the AquaStop circuit.\015\012\015\012This is linked to the inlet hose. Either the connector linking the inlet tap to the inlet valve is loose or the float switch has triggered.\01 ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius FDW 60 dishwasher. Crockery was with greasy smear on it. Since then the drying does not appear to be working. Seems the drying element has malfunctioned, can we replace this with a spare part heater element? If so, how much do they cost and are they easy to fit.

We have a Bosch dishwasher SHX46A06 UC/21. It continually runs. We couldn't find a diagnostic test for our model, but we did for another model. We held down the power scrub and regular wash cycles then turned it on and pressed them again. The delicate/econo light started blinking. Looking at some of the blogs, most often it seems to be the heater or the control panel - does this diagnostic test help to pinpoint what could be wrong? Also, where can we find a good manual for our model - we're havi

I purchased a dishwasher in dec.07. I am not happy! My dishes are not clean! Silverware and glassware have a white coating on them. I've tried less detergent(cascade gel and powder)I tried more. Done the same with jet dry! I have added white vinegar this helps but still not satisfactory. We have also turned our water heater up so the water would be hotter.


Did you try to adjust the doseage regulator that is in the jet dry compartment fill hole, check your operators manual for info on this.\015\012 Good Luck ! ... Dishwashers

Powdered soap residue (cascade) sticks in the dispenser after dishwasher has completed wash cycle. I have tried the new gel pacs and they also seem to stick to the dispenser even after the the dispenser door has opened. What needs to be done?


The best solution is to use the compressed powder cubes, the will fall to the bottom of the dishwasher as soon as the soap cup opens. New dishwashers use so little water that they dont do a good job of getting all the phosphate free detergent out of ... GE Dishwashers

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

Hi. I suspect that the timer mechanism will be the culprit here, but i recommended to inspect and test the water inlet valve, before replacing the timer. The valve is a known problem area, as well. Follow the valve inspection procedure below, careful ... Fisher DS603W / DS603B / DS603I Dishwasher

My client has all Thermador kitchen appliances and the dishwasher is a problem. There are smells which the repairman says is due to no heating element. Also the pull out trays are flimsy and not enough basket area for silverware. This product just seems inferior to other makes. How do you get the dishwasher replaced with a better product? It is only three months old!

We have and older Jackson model 10 AB at church, used 10 to 20 times per year. The pump motor quit this summer and was replaced by a local appliance service company. About $700 job. Upon using it recently, the first time since the new pump was installed, the RINSE cycle seems very anemic, that is, low volume and low spin rate. The dishes were not completely rinsed. Temperature was correct, 185 degrees. The service person came back to look with no improvement and now the Heaters will not co

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person replaced the timer control board. Could this be the same problem reoccuring? I have also tapped and cleaned the water float as described by GE website.

Dishes don't get clean, even on heavy wash ''powerscrub''. Bad film of what seems to be detergent residue. (If it's lime we'd be replacing water heaters yearly and that hasn't happened.)

LG - LDF7811ST Dishwasher will not turn on at all. I have replaced the main PCB board and checked all wires for shorts. The PCB board does have 120Vac to the board. I have also checked the latch and it does close the switch when the dishwasher is closed. I think it may be the main switch/power button board but can't seem to find the part number or alternate part numbers that can be used.


Hi. The likely culprit will be the power switch. The part number for this switch is 5020ED3011A.NOTE_ Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for po ... Dishwashers
