Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We came home from holidays a few years ago and the dishwasher (Westinghouse 905) just didn't turn on. We've tried it repeatedly since then and are unable to get it to turn on. The power point works for other appliances. Should we replace it or could someone fix it? And is it a plumber or electrician you get to fix dishwashers?

I have a 6th sense dishwasher purchased new October 2004. It has been working properly and then has just stopped the next time I tried to use it - it will not turn on no matter what buttons I push - no response. I have checked the power out let with another appliance and that works so it is not the power supply from the power point. I can only think it must be a fuse or the controller. Can you please advise best course of action? Thanks Helen


I rang the appliance man to fix the problem.\015\012\015\012Thanks anyway Helen ... Westinghouse Dishwashers

My Kitchenaid dishwasher (model KUDS02SRSS0) keeps burning out my dispenser. First I replaced the dispenser, then I replaced the control board and dispenser, it worked for two weeks and now I have a melted solenoid again in my dispenser. I've measured voltage to the solenoid and it is getting 110V through the entire diagnostic cycle. This is wrong. It should only get power at some point during the cycle to open the dispenser. It appears the control board has failed again and in the same wa

I got this dishwasher from a friend that had mice chew the hoses and i was told that it worked perfect before the mice chewed it. I replaced the drain and fill hoses plus the power cord. when i put everything back together and power on I get F1 on the top drawer and the rotor rotates and the heater plate turns on. The botton drawer does nothing with no display. I checked all the wires with a meter and found good continuity thru every pin. I replaced the main filter board. I even switched the

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button.

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.


You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Dishwasher I have had above integrated dishwasher which is intermittently tripping the mains fuse. Power is getting to dishwasher and the washing cycles work until a certain point (not the same time) where a loud bang can be heard and the main fuse is tripped.

Child Lock light glows without pressing Energy Saver Dry button for four seconds. Cannot turn off by pressing Engery Saver Dry button for four seconds. Turning off main power and turning back on doesn't solve problem. But turning off main power for extented period, over night, and turning back on does fix proble for a very short period but Child Lock does come back on by itself. Is replacing the Console Assembly the only fix? Is there some button sequence to disable Child Lock altogher?

Have a Westinghouse 905 dishwasher (guessing approx 5-10yrs old). When I turn it on it's starts is cycle as expected then stops after about 10mins and loses all power (can't turn it on or get any lights to light up for sometime almost like it needs to cool down) at this point the dishwasher is full of water. It is not the pump however as as soon as you can get power to it (sometimes some hours later) and turn it on the first thing it does is pump out the water. Any ideas??


It is likely the thermal relay is tripping. This could be because if you are feeding hot water to inlet the temperature of water is too high, or the dishwasher heater is faulty and overheating the water. Or it is also possible the thermal cutout is s ... Westinghouse Dishwashers

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned!

Dishwasher is just less than 1 year old. it doesn't respond to attempts to turn on. I turned off the power at the box and back on after 10 minutes. it worked. then the same problem returned. now it wont turn on at all. I checked all the connections I could and they seem fine. I know it is getting power. My guess is that something is wrong with the computer system. any ideas?

Our Dishwasher is not draining. We tried to run a test cycle and noticed there is no power. We checked the Electrical Panel and noticed that an unmarked breaker was tripped. We turned it on but still have no power. All other electrical items are working in the house. Is the power being cut off as a fail-safe function due to the water not draining? How do I fix the drain/pump? Please Help!
