I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p

... Siemens Dishwashers

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Hi, I have a Siemens SE44 dishwasher with Aquastop, which I bought recently. It was doing great for first 3-4 wash cycles and then it stopped functioning :( Now all it does is let the water in, and then drains it out- it doesnt do anything else. I can hear the water going in and then the machine drains the water,and this repeats. I tired resetting the dishwasher, checked the drain pipe, aquastop etc, and all seem to be in order to me. Any suggestions? Many thanks, stonerockyy

Gritty dishes My dishes are coming out of the wash gritty. It is as if food has been dried on them. As if the rinse water has particles in it and then they are left on every dish.

It is getting worse.The inside of the dishwasher. mostly on the top, usually has food residue all over it at the end of every wash. Even the machine is dirty. I'm hand washing everything right now.

My kenmore washing machine fills with water but will not wash..it sounds like its doing something then it stops after a while i hear it drain and then stops again..water doesnt spray..I let the dishwasher run for a while but dishes werent even wet


Often these work by reversing the motor which has two pump impellers. One direction will pump the water out and the other will pump it through the spray bar. IF the one pump impeller has broken then that would explain your symptoms. \015\012 ... Kenmore 24 in. 16193 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?
