I have the two drawer model dish-drawer system. In the past the top seal leaked and since has been replaced with a new seal. Worked well for several years after but then the top drawer quit running. So we started to use the bottom drawer. That was fine for awhile althought it would pump waste water into the top drawer. Now neither drawer will work. The bottom drawer starts up and shuts down. I pulled the lower drawer and it is dry.


If your model has got an LCD display are you able to record what shows up on the display when the bottom drawer shuts down. If no display then are you able to note down the LEDs which are on inside the top of the drawer lid. It is likely there is no ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?

I have a Bosch SHU43C. I have a leak it seems to come out from the door. I removed the front panel. Inspected the seal and all seemed smooth and not damaged in any way. So I decided to run the machine. Waited for a few minutes and the water leaked from both corners at the same time. The water settled in the rubber trough under the door. After a few more minutes the water leaked over the trough and onto the foor. Is there to much water entering the machine? What limits the water entering

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it
