Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a GE Dishwasher model #GSD4134Z02WW. I am trying to remove the lower spray arm. Mine is cracked. There are no screws or bolts holding the arm in the dishwasher that I can see. The new piece appears to have threads on it as to indicate that you would just screw it in place. The old piece doesn't screw/turn. How do I remove this piece?

I have a Bosch Dishwasher SHU3302UC/14 that will not drain. We initially thought the problem was the disposal because water kept backing up into the sink. We replaced the disposal, removed the dishwasher plug in the disposal, but the dishwasher still does not drain. I would like to check the drain line, but am unable to access it. I removed the kick plate and the screws that secure the dishwasher to the underside of the counter, but the dishwasher will not move. Can you access the drain li

I have a KitchenAid Sculptura dishwasher and it have been leaving food particles on the dishes. I started to take it apart, removing the bottom spray arm. I can see a lot of old food underneath. I'm having a hard time removing the next piece. There is a 1" rubber nut with a screw in the middle. Is this the next step for removal?

I need to remove a broken heating element from my Whirlpool dishwasher and install the replacement part. I was hoping it would just "pop" out and the new piece would push in, however, it seems that it is not that simple. I need instructions.


Depend on how the heating element goes through the tub you do have to go underneath (if it goes down through the tub in the front) or even remove the dishwasher from the cabinet (if it does it on the back of the dishwasher). The tub is made of ... Whirlpool GU1200XTLS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Bosch Dishwasher I have a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, I made the "mistake" to try to see if I could fix the jammed handle from the door. Unfortunately, (did not realize the top panel comes off without opening the entire door). I removed the screws from the door frame (Inside panel), and the door springs/latched got loose. I would like to put it back together, but I dont have any diagrams on the door to make sure all parts are in place to put the door back together. I have been havin

The top spray arm of my Frigidare model FBD4315LFC0 Aqua Surge dishwasher fell off. Their appears to be a missing part. I've been searching online for a schematic and can't find one thorough enough to use. The parts I have are: 1. The top sprayer arm (the one in the top of the tub) 2. The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4. The keeper nut that screws directly onto the wate

A glass shattered in a thousand pieces in the dishwasher. I cleaned and vacuumed everything except the very bottom that I can't get to. I took out 8 screws, removing the round rotator piece at the bottom, but that still doesn't get me into the very bottom where I'm certain there is still glass. Question #1 - Will leaving the glass down there hurt anything? Question #2 - If yes, how do I get the rest of the part off without damaging it? I have a 10+ yr old Model DU920QWDB3 Thank y


The glass should just go down the drain from there. I doubt any piece that made it into there should damage anything as they are would have to be pretty small and as big as any food particle that could fit into there so you should be fine. If you rea ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Zanussi Dishwasher ZDT6053. Holding the On/Off button causes the indicator lights to work correctly, but as soon as you remove your finger from the spring loaded button, all the lights go off. Would guess that on/off button should electronically latch via the control board. Have removed mains power for 60 secs in the hope of a 'hard' reset, but no fix. Is there anything obvious to check or fix or must it be a replacement control board?

I need to clear out broken glass from the gray pan underneath where the water drains to, but I need to take the twirling water sprayer off first to get to the next piece that looks like it is bolted down, and I cannot see how to remove the twirling sprayer part. The piece in the center of it does not appear to be a screw off part, so I am at a standstill.

Great instructions in dismantling a KitchenAid dishwasher. I followed them until after removing the screw from the sump (there were actually 2 of them in my model). Unfortunately the chopper cover would not budge! Looks like it should, but it doesn't. Don't want to try leveraging or prying too much in case I crack something and it ends up an even more costly job. Any suggestions?

LG LDF8812ST dishwasher not washing: reports LE error code. Fills and drains ok. Impeller is clear, removed inside housing - no obstructions. Synchronous motor works. Tested main motor - appears to be good. Motor is not locked, looks to be in excellent condition. No shorts to ground, continuity across three main pins - not sure what the other 4 are for. My guess would be the PCB, but not sure how to test this. How do I determine if the PCB is bad?

Screw drop Hi I was installing my new LG dishwasher and I droped a screw in the hole in the side panel where you can put a screw to connect to the side of your cabinet. There is a small plastic cover which I removed where you can screw a screw into the cabinet. However the head of my screw was too small and fell in the side panel. I can not get the screw out or see it now although I know it is in the dishwasher. Is there anyway of getting it out or will this cause a problem? Since it is in t
