Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The door lock has broken and won't open after washing. I see that I can get spares but it's a question of what's needed. Do I just need the lock mechanism or will I need any electrics too e.g. microswitches? If so where's the best place to get them?

I would like to get a user manual for LG dishdrawer model DD603, Australian model. Failling that what I really need to know at present is how to use the lock button - just pressing it doesn't seem to work.

Even after ensuring that really hot water is coming from the faucet and placing the unit on the Delicate/Econo setting we consistently get a 2 HR reading. We have also had it where the unit gets stuck on Cycle 1 and we have to reset to go to CL and clear the system of its waste water. Is this a mechanical issue or a circuit board issue.


Did you discover the source of the 2HR reading? Mine's doing the same thing, except the drain pump keeps running and running as well...\015\012Any ideas?\015\012I can't imagine it's anything but the circuit board (for the third time in t ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

I borrowed my neighbor's Karcher Model G 2650 OH (it's several years old). It had the yellow tip already on, but after awhile, I took the tip off to use a different tip,and pulled down the brass coupling at the end of the wand to insert the new tip. The problem is that the brass coupling at the end of the wand won't snap into place around the tip -- so I tried another, and another. No luck. And now the original tip that was on the wand won't snap back into place. HELP! I need to get my neighbor

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

My gas power washer will not start. I filled the gas, checked the oil, set the choke, made sure it was on, changed the spark plug, checked the air filter, and drained any water. When I pull the cord to start I don't even get a putter. Anything else I can try or do I need to take it to a service place.


Will it run if you pour a small amount of gas in the carb? If so, it's a fuel supply problem. Most likely a stuck closed float needle. ... Honda Maxus Pressure Washer MX5222
