The plastic recessed door handle on our Smeg Model PL823X Type 11053 has suddenly cracked and broken away with normal handling which makes it difficult to open the door. We are told we need a a complete new program selector panel, that is very expensive and we are informed we may as well but a new machine. Is that true and is that good design?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.

Dishwasher FDB4315LFC0 Error code ER uo Second time it has happened. First time, a repairman came and said I needed a new "vent assembly", but I asked if he could "un stick it," so he took it apart and fiddled with it, and it worked for about a month. Now the error code is back, and he warned that if it came back, I should have it replaced. I've only had this NEW machine 10 months -- this shouldn't happen, right? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello! I just ordered a new facia panel for our Bosch dishwasher SHU9955UC/U12. It seems like it should be fairly easy to replace it (meaning, myself...). Is it really just a question of unscrewing the screws on the inside of the door, removing the old panel and then replacing the new one? Are there any especially delicate inside mechanisms/parts That should be protected? Many thanks.

My dishwasher came with styrofoam placed between the top and the inside , a foam sheet and cardboard screwed to the back. Is this the packaging and does it need to be removed before installation? The picture in the instruction manual does not advise you to unscrew the back packaging. Even though I attempted to remove the foam sheet it is stuck under the sides at the back of the dishwasher.

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though.

How do I disconnect the electrical wire plugs from the door handle in order to replace the handle? The plugs won't pull straight off and so I am wondering if there is any piece of equipment needed to disengage the plugs from the prongs.


First shut off the power to the dish washer. The plugs are just verry hard to pull off. You may brake the switch on the old handle but if you have the right new part it should have new switches on it. Just pull hard side to side wiggle off. ... Maytag 24 in.

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?

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button.
