If you put manual detergent that hapend, it could burnd electronis card (or mechanical timer-programer blowup), thermostat or the presostat, the heating element must be OK.

On my Matsui dishwasher MF2W/A the timer sticks all the time. I have to move it on by hand to get it to go through the wash cycle. The water is heating ok, the machine washes and drains ok, it's just the timer control knob won't move by itself. Can anyone suggest what part should be replaced/checked?

Purchased in 2003. Dishes were exquisitly clean till 2008. Our water heater temp was set at 140 temp. This heater was replaced with a heater now set at 125 temp. In the past two years dishes are nowhere as clean on the the normal start setting. Should I go to the Pots and Pans start setting to get hotter water or should I turn up my water heater? All this is assuming that water is not hot enough. Does the washer heating element ever burn out?


Try turning on your water at the sink for a while on hot let it run then start the wash cycle that should help. what that will do is let the cold water run out of the pipes and therefore you will have a hot water start. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Ran the self test program and it seemed to get stuck in the wash stage, never seemed to move on BUT no error message. Now what, any suggesting please guys??

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now. Thanks for any help you can give me!

My Omega Eurolux Dishwasher (mode: DW211P/1) won't stop cycling, It sems to get stuck during the wash cycle and continues for hours, until I turn it off. If I turn the dial to rinse it rinses fine. It doesn't seem to heat the water at all, there is no steam when I open the door. I have put a new heating element in, but this doesn't seem to be heating up at all. When I open the door mid wash cycle the element is cold to touch.

We have a Kenwood KDW8ST2A dishwasher. We used to get the error code E3 (when still under warranty) and were told not to use dishwasher tablets as it generated too much foam. The problem has been intermittent but now we get the E3 error every time, no matter what program we run, or how little detergent we put in.
