Have a whirlpool gold dishwasher.The problem is that the clean lite on the control panel flashes not allowing the unit to work.I installed a new disposal and forgot to remove the plug for the dishwasher drain hose.When the flood happened I opened the door in order to stop the dishwasher.Now the unit will not work.The lite flashes 7 time ,then it pauses and flashes 7 times etc.Is there a reset procedure to run in order to get the unit to work or do I need to buy a new control panel?

New Bosch dishwasher SHE55PO6UC is noisier than expected. I listened to a 50db unit at Sears and the unit I purchased(47db) is not as quiet.The gasket/seal doesn't seem to fit tight against the cabinet opening and there are gaps at the side of the base plate. What type of materials can I use to improve the sound insulation?

I am an Australian who has bought a second hand Defy Dishmaid dishwasher from a South African work mate. It is a 2/3 year old machine that he bought over from South Africa. When he moved into a new house the machine did not fit his kitchen bench opening much to his frustration so he sold it. When placed in my kitchen it was a tight fit and upon recent inspection the floor pan of the unit, it may have buckled. It worked well until recently when we did some renovations when I needed to remove

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles. Unit is old and wondering if it's better to buy a new one rather than fix this and have something else go wrong in the not to distant future. Thanks in advance

My GE 24 in Profile PDW8280JSS door wont open: Now the "clean" light is on. I tried cutting power for over an hour, I have run wash cycles, the lock handle will not move. The unit did not have much in it, when I last closed it, so I don't think it is jammed. Any ideas?

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

Hard starting 6hp Briggs and Stratton power washer engine. I poured a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder; reinserted the spark plug and with one pull in ran fine. This is a choke start engine and it may take 12 to 15 pulls to start on a cold engine. The unit is clean. The air cleaner is new. The spark plug is new. The unit is 2 years old with very little use.

Shu9925uc/14 bosch dishwasher leaves standing water in the bottom of the pump. The pump seems to be bad because it wont drain out the back hose. I have run the diswasher full cycle and put the drain hose into the sink to test. It wont drain at all now and I dont hear the pump. Perhaps unrelated: Pump seemed to stop working after the back hose disconnected itself from the back of the unit spilling water all over the floor. When I reconnected the unit to the wall the pump now seems to be disfunct

I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?


What you need to do is read for continuity and power across the door latch switch. (2 white wires) AND 2 Black wires Both wires must read continuty at the control panel connectors to the power source terminals for the unit to start. Since the co ...
