Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My GE quietpower 3 won't drain and my plumber didn't leae the manual


Answers :

Many dishwashers have markings on the control pushbuttons, such that when you push two buttons at the same time (or something like that) the control circuit will (should) stop the cycle and run the drain pump long enough to drain almost all of the fluid out through your siphon-break (probably atop your sink) and into your kitchen sink drain pipe. Start by trying this. if it does not work:
in order of likelihood:
1) There may be a clog. More likely in the drain hose or connecting pipe, from the discharge of the pump. Less likely, but possible some kind of debris may be blocking the grating at the bottom where the pump takes a suction, or even inside the pump volute itself. ( The suction of mine was once blocked by a scale build-up from "hard" water).
2) Your control circuit is "telling" your drain pump to run, but the pump is not turning. The pump rotor may be stuck. This also happened to me because of scale build-up. I took the intake grate off and freed up the rotor by turning it with my hand.
3) Your control circuit is not "telling" your pump to run. To correct this you WILL need the manual.You will need to reset the control circuit in accordance with directions in that manual.
Above all, always SWITCH OFF the POWER AT THE CIRCUIT BREAKER before you touch anything other that the controls. Be Safe!

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water. But now, we have no water flowing into the dishwasher. The drain pumps, the heater works, but there's no water supply. The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

I have a Bosch dish washer model SHX 43 M 0 ZUC / 48 FD 8709 00169 The dish washer is about 1 1/4 years old and was installed by a plumber as part of a Home Depot kitchen remodel. The problem is draining. The quick wash does not drain at the end of the wash. The regular wash sometimes drain and sometimes does not. The auto wash does drain.

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?

My Bosh dishwasher now runs well past the 105 minutes as stated in the manual, over three hours before I intervene. It gets stuck on the wash mode, it wont drain or rinse, just runs and runs in the wash mode (I know it's in the wash mode because when I open it up, theres suds inside). It will do the wash mode until I reset the wash mode to "Rinse & Hold". I appreciate whatever information you could provide.
