Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have granite countertops< so i have to install the clips on the sides of the dishwasher instead of on top. however the dishwasher has no holes with plugs


Answers :

If you can't find any place on the sides to mount the clips then you can take a piece of wood that matches your cabinets and fasten it to the opening in you cabinet for the dishwasher so you will have somethink to mount the washer to. Make sure your washer is level so you can figure out the gap size at the top, then pull the washer out and mount the wood to the cabinet. You could call the guys who installed the counter tops and see what they would or could do, but I wouldn't drill into the granite myself

I purchased a whirlpool dishwasher GU2475xtvy2 with interior controls on top of the door. Might seem like a silly question, however, do I have to install with the door & controls controls out from under the countertop? or do I install with controls hidden, and make selections before closing door? Doesn't address this in the installation manual. Thanks


Hi,It is up to you as to where you fasten the dishwasher at...if you push it back too far then you will have to do the setting before you close it which is no problem... but if you want it out a bit then you can do that and you will have a hip ...

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. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom.

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

Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve ... Dishwashers

Hi, we are trying to install our new Bosch dishwasher model: SMU68M05AU. I am surprised to see packing foam and flimsy edging across the top edge that meets up to the stainless steel door edge when its closed. I can not find detailed installation instructions. Is there not a strip that goes across the top to meet the door as the top looks very ugly? The dishwasher door protrudes from the under bench cupboard space so the top part is in view and exposed.

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher?

The brackets to hold the dishwasher back under the counter do not align with the holes that were drilled in the granite counter top for the old dishwasher. I do not want to try to drill new holes in the granite. Is there an alternative to fasten the dishwasher under the countertop so that it will not rock out. The model DU1055XTVS3.


You could have a handy person make some new brackets which attach to the new dishwasher's brackets with bolts but are made so that they line up with the existing worktop holes. You can probably use strips of soft metal with holes to fashion these.T ... Dishwashers

We just bought this dishwasher. The instructions say it doesn't need to be anchored and it doesn't come with the clips you usually see for dishwashers that need to screwed into the frame (or have a place where such clips could be attached). That said, the dishwasher completely tilts forward when the top rack is loaded, so something is definitely not right. Has anyone had this problem and/or know how to resolve? Thanks.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher- I installed a new garbage disposal and forgot to knock out the drain plug (dumb-i know) and I ran the dishwasher that night- well in the morning I noticed it was full of water and the bottom and the drain was humming. I then realized what I had done- so I knocked out the plug and the dishwasher drained immediately. but now the drain continues to run - even with the door open and I cannot get it off the drain cycle. Any suggestions?

Installing a built-in LG dishwasher; got everything ready to go, but a problem with the hot water line coming in. It is barely long enough to reach to the front where I've installed the elbow. Since I have to back the dishwasher in to the 24 in. hole there is no room for error in terms of not running over this hose with the bottom of the dishwasher. Any tricks to handling this situation?


Hi, best way would be to install a "spring" attached to the back of the dishwasher. The hose would connect to that and easily "pull-away" when moving or "pull-tight" taking up the slack. A much simpler method is to tie a piece of string to the hot wa ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
