Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Frigidaire Gallery model, GLD2445RFB that runs, washes, cycles etc but does not drain. Is there a common fix for this, and if so, how do I do it? I have the manual, but it doesn't have any schematics for me to review.


Answers :

My d/w will not drain: Check to make sure which style d/w you have as outlined above. The direct drive dishwashers have a drain solenoid attached to the motor and pump or a separate drain valve that must be checked with a ohm or voltmeter. The drain solenoid and valve energize and opens the drain port to allow the water to pump out. For a "no drain" problem, always start with the common stuff first...a kinked or clogged drain hose. The drain hose must be checked and cleaned out and if you have to, remove the drain hose(s) to fully check and clean them. Don't forget the drain system sometimes consists of a self cleaning bodythat also can get clogged and stop the dishwasher from draining. If your drain hose needed to be lengthened a hose connector was probably used, these hose connectors are slightly smaller than the drain hose and food bits often get clogged there, also the tail pipe piece that connects the drain hose from your d/w to the house drain is also another popular place to get a clog. On the forward/reversing style of dishwashers that won't drain, make sure the motor is reversing to drain the water out. If the motor does not reverse to drain, the motor, wires ( especially where the doors bends to open and close ) and timer will have to be checked. If the motor is reversing and running, the pump impellor inside the motor and pump assembly may be damaged and is incapable of pushing the water out to drain. If the drain solenoid or drain valve checks ok on the direct drive motor and pump, the impellor inside may also be damaged as mentioned above.
Always check the drain spout under the sink for a d/w that will not drain, also if the Air gas is leaking ( see Fig1A ) this is a clogged air gap or drain and normally not a d/w problem. These are some typical drain hook ups....if you have a drain question, may be a good idea to refer to one of the figures so we all know which style you have :-)

Hello, I have a washing mashine (BOSCH MAXX WFL 2860), just a few years old. Right now it wont start the centrifuge at the end of the programme, it will just deliver a strange, low grinding sound. Is this something that can be fixed? A common problem maybe with a common fix? regards, Thomas

We live in an apartment and our hot point dishwashers timing is all off and i thought if i could fix it myself, i'd love to do that instead of calling our manager, i will call him, but if its an easy fix i'd like to try it out.. it will just stop in mid cycle, and you have to manually more it a fraction of an inch to get it restarted, then at the end it doesnt fully drain, and the drying takes forever, so if i cant fix it, i'll ask for a new one..


It might need a new mechanical timer (sounds like the timer is sticking) installed and the parts will cost money... so you might want to go the route of the manager. The dial that you turn to set the dishwasher is part of the mechanical timer. Someti ... Dishwashers

I have a brand new Miele dishwasher which has worked grate since it was installed 2 weeks ago. It keeps shutting itself off & indicates an F13 fault. I looked in the manual, see that water is going in fine & pressure is good. It then says to clean water intake filter. How do I get to that ? I don't have a user maintenance manual. I'm on city water & doubt that the filter is clogged but My wife will kill me if I don't get it fixed today. Can anyone help. Glenn

I have a Bosch 5306 from about 2001. It seems my problem is not unheard of, but the description of the diagnostic routine I've seen is lacking. My problem is this: Poor Cleaning / EXTREMELY Prolonged Cylce Time (i.e., Timer starts off at some time... then jumps UP to longer time... counts down through the cycle... stays on "1" for hours). I'm okay enough with tools and manuals to consider fixing it myself and am looking for: a) reasonable diagnosis; b) source for repair (not owner) manual; c

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Mod: 665.1373) makes bad noise after the tub fils and the pump starts running. (Not sure how to describe noise.) Bad pump? Other? I have checked for anything obstructing rotating parts and that is definitely not it. My guess is something wrong with the pump, but not sure. If so, I'm wondering what my options are. Like are their common problems with pumps that can be fixed at home? Replacement?

DD603 upper drawer pump rotor will not turn - F2 error. Was completely siezed. Removed rotor and got the shaft to turn with pliers. However it does not spin freely and still shows an F2 error. Does anyone have a repair manual so I can figure out how to remove the pump? Lower drawer had an F1 error (due to the upper leaking/F2 error) and this website helped me fix that problem.


Maybe you dont have to remove anything else.. try the rotor from the bottom drawer first. If this works just buy a new rotor.. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

The dishwasher makes a horribly loud sound when running. I think it has to do with the lower "spinner arm". When I push it manually, it wobbles and makes noise. So I am guessing that spinning at higher speeds would cause much more noise. Can I fix it?
