Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665 and the rubber circular gasket in the middle of the bottom of the tub seems to be coming up in one area. I'm interested in knowing how concerned to be about this and advice on replacing it. Thanks!


Answers :

I wouldn't be too concerned about this unless it is leaking water under the dishwasher. If so, then the replacement is a little bit of a hassel however it isn't impossible. First if you are going to be replacing the gasket you will need to remove the washer from under the counter and flip it on its top. Remove the clamp holding the motor to the washer and remove the motor. With the new gasket you may need to soak in hot water (not boiling) to make it more plyable. Take some petroleum jelly and with your finger run it around the split seam that will be going on the tub side. Once it is installed you may want to put a small amount of petreoleum jelly around the inner section where the motor inserts. Reinsert the motor and instaal clamp. Your ready to go. I would watch for the time being to see if your are leaking water since these gaskets swell from time to time due to the heating and drying elements and you may not have anything to worry about until you have a leak

\015\012As long as it is not leaking I would not be too concerned BUT I would know where to get the parts and how to fix it.

\015\012That seal is glued in place. You can try to re-glue it using this product (surfaces must be clean!)

\015\012If you can not re-glue to old seal then this is probably your lower door seal ($12.85) (You will still need the adhesive above)

Blowing fuse... We've replaced the overheating fuse located in the control board area about 5 times. It has just blown again after using the dishwaser one time--before it would go about a month before blowing the fuse. It seems to get about a few minutes away from completing the wash cycle and does not complete the draining process. Help!! We don't know what to do next--replacing the fuse is costing about $15 each time, before you know it we could have bought a new one! Thanks for the help. Ti


Tim, this blown fuse issue was pretty common on this model. Whirlpool, which made this model came out with a fuse kit that included a terminal and heavier guage wire to eliminate this problem. It just splices right into the control board, easy job. T ... Kenmore 17024 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

We have a Haier dishwasher and the capacitor burned out. The mahcines are sold at Argos and Comet but I can't source a replacment part which seems kind of crazy.

Bosch dishwasher (SXH55MO6UC/46): The power comes on and runs normal, but no water is coming into the unit. I was told that it was a water inlet valve that needs to be replaced (part #263833). I need to know if this is what needs to be replaced and if so, is this something that I can do or do I need an expert repair service to do it? If it is something that I can do, I need instructions.

I purchased a replacement lower dishwasher basket for a DU8500XB-0 Whirlpool. The replacement part is W10311986. The part fits washer as far as rolling in and out, but there are 4 extra parts that I don't know how they fit, no paper work with the part from FSP. Basket probably fits more than one machine. Would like to know how the extra parts fit the basket. Thanks

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A05UC/40 is making noise when draining. I have cleaned the screen and hose back to the drain and removed all debris. So it seem to be the 'drain pump'.

Could it be something else?

My dishwasher is leaking from underneath, front left as you look at it. If i go underneath it, there appears to be a seal on the outside (it does not appear to be the one that runs along the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher) that has come away at one point. Do you know a) how to get the front panel off (the bit that makes it look built in),b) how can i get another one of these seals. I assume if i get one we can just fit it into place.

Bosch Dishwasher I currently own a Bosch dishwasher. One of the selling points, if I'm remembering right, of the dishwasher was it was supposed to super heat the hot water that is coming in from the tap. I have 3 problems. We have to rinse the dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher, Otherwise they won't come out clean. The dishwasher will run for four hours sometimes longer. It doesn't seem like it is heating the water any hotter than what comes out of the tap.
