F2 Code Hey, I have a single drawer built in Fisher & Paykel dish drawer and today I pulled the spray arm, filter and large metal screen out to clean them as we have been starting to get a bit of stuff left behind after washing lately. That was all good After putting it all back in though I went to use the dishwasher and it stopped and came up with an F2 fault, I thought I may not have put the bits back in properly so pulled them out again and noticed that on the rotor that connects the motor to

I have a frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a loose part inside the retainer in the ceiling that moves back into the retainer when I try to put the spray arm back on. How do I fix this and how do I get the top basket out to work on it?


The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the ... Frigidaire PLD4555RFC Dishwasher

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

I have a Kenmore dishwasher 665.17799990. Not enough water was coming in so I thought that I'd check the screen inside the water inlet valve to see if it was clogged. It was. I cleaned it out,but mistakenly opened the wrong part of the valve looking for the screen and took apart the diaphram assembly. Bad mistake. Now I can't get it back together without it leaking like crazy. I can't remember how it was configured to start with. I put it together once,but it wouldn't shut. I can't afford to buy

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we give up on this thing and replace it. Only 3 years old. Any recommendations? We assummed the newer dishwashers would not need pre-rinse by hand but would clean.

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

My Frigidaire Dishwasher FDB1050RES2 gets stuck in a rinse cycle. The light on the front will be lit "clean" but the bottom of the washer is full of water. Opening the door does not turn off the "clean" light. For me to get it to run, I have to unplug it, plug it back in, push the start button until the ?washing? light comes on. I then push the start button once more and the dishwasher will begin to drain. I open the door as soon as I hear the water stop draining into the sink drain. This
