Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our Blanco dishwasher works sometimes, other times it sounds like it is going but the water does not go. It was doing it every now & then, but now it is lucky if it works at all. Can you help? model BFDW 650S. Thanks Donna

If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:--\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-inlet valve\015\012\015\012\015\012The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.\015\012\015\012\015\012Float switch\015\012\015\012\015\012The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.\015\012
and if the water enters but :--If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:--\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-heating cycle\015\012\015\012\015\012Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:\015\012\015\012\015\012On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.\015\012\015\012\015\012On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer\015\012\015\012\015\012Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.\015\012

Draining problem Water left in dishwasher after end of cycle. Have a disposer, don't have a drain air gap that I can see. Tried to do a cancel/drain, showed 2 minutes ended and water still there. Disposal works fine. What is really interesting is that there is only two of us and at most we've only used the dishwasher thirty times since we had it. Of course- service plan ran out last year (July 07) Please help me. My name is Donna

Need help my oven is not working, the self cleaning works fine, the broiler also works, but the oven will not heat. what can i do? Our Kenmore gas range will not heat to the proper temp.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

Good afternoon - I have a Whirlpool model LSR7233EQ0 washer. The washer works fine in regards to draining, filling, lower agitator works...however, the top agitator does not engage and almost sounds like grinding. However (I know you are not supposed to do this), when the machine is in the wash cycle, I push sideways on the top of the agitator and it then does engage and agitate. When I release pressure, the top agitator does not work. Thanks for your help, Michael

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers
