Candy washing machine runs through programme and stops at the point where it drains the drum to start the spin. Have switched it off and turned timer to correct position and it drains and spins OK (1200 spin) Tried other programmes on timer but same thing, stopping at point where the pump drains and the spin starts. Have checked the pump and is OK any ideas please, I am quite capable of taking the machine apart for repair. Thanks in anticipation Pete

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its

On my Matsui dishwasher MF2W/A the timer sticks all the time. I have to move it on by hand to get it to go through the wash cycle.

I have an Asko w66 front load washing machine that will only wash one way with a 60 second time delay and washes the same way again instead of reversing. At no time will it wash the other way. At the first spin cycle the water is pumped out but the wash drum will not spin. The pump continues to pump and will not stop while the one way wash continues. The timer stops at this point with the one way wash and pump still pumping continuously.

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).

The top drawer of my FP dishwasher is not cleaning everything properly. The glasses or dishes in the front left side are always dirty and are covered with crumby dried residue when the cycle is complete. I took the wire grate out and cleaned the stainless panel on the bottom, I removed the spinning wand armature and made sure the holes were clear. It spins freely. What else can I do?

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?


If you think you can do it then do it. it is normally not any harder than it looks. now because i work there i would say call them :) but you can change those parts fairly easily ... Kenmore Dishwashers
