Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

When running there is a smell of warm of burning wire insulation and the top left side of the door has a warm feeling to it


Answers :

This could be a sign of a short in the electrical components and power should be disconnected so not to cause any damage to the dishwasher or more important you and your house. The only other thing that I've ever seen make a smell like this, is when something plastic is melted on the heating element at the bottom of the dishwasher and every time it calls for heat, it melts more. Its usually a kitchen utensil or one of the wheels from the racks. Hope this helps.

When the dishwahser door is lowered to unload the bottom rack, I get a small puddle from the top, left side of the door. this is the area where there are vents for the steam that releases during the final stages of the dishwashwer. this puddle happens every single time regardless of how long or short of time after the dishwasher is complete. Is something not working correctly? Or is this just a bad design and condensation is buidling up and this puddle is the result? My wooden floor is taking a

I have removed the internal cover and cleaned the inside and replaced the cover but to no effect.

Water is leaking from the top of the top drawer, mainly on the right side of the top drawer. Is there an adjustment to raise the tub so that it would have an even seal to prevent the water from leaking. I noticed that the top drawer has a bigger gap on the right side or has more give-in/movemenet when the tub is lifted compare to the left side. This casue the flooding error at the end of the washing cycle.

Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides.

I have a Maytag MDB7600AWB dish washer. I have a door leak, dripping from the right side. I can not see anything that would allow it. It seems like it could be coming from the inside of the door. Also, there is heat and condensation on at the top of the door, above the leak. It could be that steam is coming from the top right and dripping down the door. Could you give me some idea about fixing the problem.
