Have a Miele G1220SC dishwasher. It recently developed a strange problem: when switching it on ALL program lights come on and the machine starts taking water. after a while it stops taking water and starts to pump water, all the time all program indicators remain on. if you leave it on a while ( about 4 or 5 minutes) it is impossible to switch off the machine with the main switch, all you can do to stop it is unplug it. anyone experienced something like this and have any idea what part is malfun

We have a Siemens dishwasher SE25M851. It had the check water light on, so we have checked all water flows which seem fine. There is what I think is an Aquastop connected to the water hose, which I have no idea if the problem is there, but when I now put the dishwasher on there is a burning smell coming out of it, so have had to turn off power supply. Can you shed any light to the problem?

I have a BOSCH 8280 dishwasher which at the end of its cycle still has soapy water in the bottom of the machine. The dishes, and especially the cutlery, are left smeared and looking unfinished. I lifted out and cleaned the filter in the floor of the machine but the water still doesn't drain away. Are there any other filters etc which may be causing the problem? Any ideas. Thanks.


There is a float, which controls water level, that caused this draining problem.\015\012\015\012Lift out the main filter assembly in the floor of the dishwasher. \015\012You can now see a small cover, positioned at the front right ... Bosch Dishwashers

The whole of this plastic case, abour 3" dianeter is clipped under the main body of the machine.

Hi I am in an emergency situation with an ikea whirlpool dishwasher. I have no idea what model it is since it's built in and I can't find the manual in my rental apartment. The machine works normally until the part where it's supposed to pump the water out after rinsing. At this point it starts to beep, once, and then 3 times. On and on and on. If I open it, there is water stagnated there. If I try to turn it off and back in, it will go through a whole new program and then I get the same problem

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?


It does sound like an inner door seal ,however If you get upset at Sears and complain they may help you as they say the squeaky hinge gets the oil..And with Sears the more you squeak the better your chances of results ...Good Luck ... Dishwashers
