Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My 13 year old Frigidair dishwasher (model FDB221RFR2) is not disolving the soap tab that drops in during the later cycles. We sometimes find the soap sitting on dishes or on the bottom. It appears that there may not be enough water but I'm sure of how much there actually should be. It also appears that the soap may be dropping late but again I'm not sure of when it should normally drop. I checked the inlet value and it appears to be ok. I also checked the timer (to the best of my ability) and i

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

Model number 665.13763k600 Seems like dishes on the top rack do not get hit with a lot of water. Also, when soap packets are put into the soap compartment, the soap packets no longer dissolve. It appears that there may be a problem with water flow. Have had the unit for a few years. Wondering if it could be a filter or something?

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any i

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon. Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I


Yes its probably the little latch that holds the door closed thats worn out. ... Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one? Would you also be able to tell me what year this mod

I have a Craftsman 2700 psi pressure washer with a Briggs and Stratton 850 engine (80 year anniversary special addition) . It is about 2 years old and used very little and will not start. I filled it with fresh fuel and checked the oil. I also replaced the spark plug and air filter. I checked the fuel line thinking it may not be getting fuel, but there is no obstruction from the tank to the end of the fuel line. I am out of TS options short of taking it to a service center.

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both. Checked the hose under the sink. We

Our SB915WJ doesn't heat water though the heating element is ok, I checked with my multimeter. Is there a mains relay or something i need to change in the circuitry to fix this problem? Does anyone out there have a service manual you can email me? Also the fan drier isn't working, also the relay that is supposed to flip open the soap dispenser doesn't work. The unit is only eighteen months old. I'm not impressed with it's working life.

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

LG - LDF7811ST Dishwasher will not turn on at all. I have replaced the main PCB board and checked all wires for shorts. The PCB board does have 120Vac to the board. I have also checked the latch and it does close the switch when the dishwasher is closed. I think it may be the main switch/power button board but can't seem to find the part number or alternate part numbers that can be used.

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle

Whirlpool ADG 7550 integrated dishwasher not cleaning properly. Ive checked the filter and there are no signs of blockage. There is no unusual beeping but there is however a weird motor noise that just appeared. Dishwasher appears to run through the cycles but most of the time there is still traces of food left behind.
