Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Tablet compartment catch has come loose

\015 Hi, my dishwasher is the zanussi DX 6453, and am having some problem with the soap compartment catch. Looks like the spring loaded catch has failed or come out, the catch does not have any spring action, and comes out frelly when pulled. I have to place the tablet in the compartment, close the lid, then slowly wiggle the catch till it stays put. also the compartment does not open in any of the programs, so i suspect the cleaning is not very effective. Can i fix this myself or will i have to call in an engineer ? I am in the UK, London.\015

Answers :

I would first call the company and get the price of a new dispenser then see if they have a kit to fix the dispenser.
\015\012then call a service tech and see what he would charge you to only put in a dispenser or to fix one with the kit. that will be the best advice because unless you can take down a door and release the dispenser it might not be worth the aggrevasion to try to do something that you might still have to get someonr else to do. unless you are pateint and mechanically inclened. if this helps let me know with a 4 thumbs up post

I have a six month old Smeg, integrated dishwasher, model D1612CT which has been working fine until recently. The pots are not clean. The cups and mugs have tea "rings" around them and the glassware is covered in a "milky" film, which comes off immediately if rinsed under the tap. I stack the dishwasher as recommended in the manual. I use loose powder rather that tablets, salt and rinse aid. Can you please sdvise me?

The spring loaded catch that locks the flap on the rinse aid compartment has broken on my dishwasher, this coincided with the tablet not being dissolved as the washer went through its cycle. is this connected or a seperate issue? Also can it be repaired or is a new machine needed.The model is Whirlpool ADG722


The catch should be replaceable. \015\012The timing is most likely coincidence. ... Dishwashers

I have had my dishwasher for 3 years. In the past few days the tablet that i put in hasnt been disolving and washing the dishes. The compartment where you put the tablet opens its just the tablet doesnt disolve.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I went online to the Bosch website for a installation manual and it describes this hose as a air venting hose. Does the end attach anywhere or does it just hang loose on the unit. My husband detached it from its original position and thought it was part of the water line. HELP!


Many people realize the dishwasher connects to a little hose on the sink, it is called an air gap. However, many people wonder " The air gap is there to prevent the water from being siphoned out of the dishwasher. When water flows through the drain ... Bosch Dishwashers

Dishwasher only faintly comes on. The detergent compartment opened but, there is a great deal of detergent residue on the inside of the door. Additionally, I removed the "mesh" drain grates from the base of the dishwasher and they are covered with chemical buildup. I was able to remove a good deal of chemical buildup. When the dishwasher would come on before, you could here the cycle start up, you could here the water, etc., now it is very faint, and you can barely hear any sound.

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

Indesit d63 dishwasher, door locked shut. took top off+got to latch, the plastic catch wouldn't pull out of the latch. undid it all, all seems unbroken but cannot seem to arrange the latch so that it will allow the plastic catch to come out when levered. also not sure if the handle is supposed to click the switch to another position, or just tweak the switch as it opens the door. is a new latch supplied with the switch ?


Check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece. ... Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher

The compartment where you put in the dishwasher tablets cannot be closed before the wash. As a result i put the washing fairy tab in the main compartment before - this results in it being diluted during the wash and the results of the wash are awful.please advise
