Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom.

I have a GE Dishwasher model #GSD4134Z02WW. I am trying to remove the lower spray arm. Mine is cracked. There are no screws or bolts holding the arm in the dishwasher that I can see. The new piece appears to have threads on it as to indicate that you would just screw it in place. The old piece doesn't screw/turn. How do I remove this piece?

The brackets to hold the dishwasher back under the counter do not align with the holes that were drilled in the granite counter top for the old dishwasher. I do not want to try to drill new holes in the granite. Is there an alternative to fasten the dishwasher under the countertop so that it will not rock out. The model DU1055XTVS3.


You could have a handy person make some new brackets which attach to the new dishwasher's brackets with bolts but are made so that they line up with the existing worktop holes. You can probably use strips of soft metal with holes to fashion these.T ... Dishwashers

Whirlpool DU920PWKB0 Dishwasher We may be in need of a lower dishrack assembly. I noted that this part does not come with the pressure cone. How can one remove the pressure cone from the old rack to insert in the new? I don't want to break it. (Even if I ordered a new rack and a new cone, I'd still have to insert it -- a round part in a square hole.)

My kenmore elite - model 8525879 is not getting dishes clean even with pre-rinse by hand. It is also leaving soap scum on glasses that is so bad, I had to hand wash my glasses with a brillo pad to remove the scum. The inside of the dishwasher is also covered with a white scum. The dishwasher is new. Not even a year old. I am using liquid detergent and rinse aid.

Hello! I just ordered a new facia panel for our Bosch dishwasher SHU9955UC/U12. It seems like it should be fairly easy to replace it (meaning, myself...). Is it really just a question of unscrewing the screws on the inside of the door, removing the old panel and then replacing the new one? Are there any especially delicate inside mechanisms/parts That should be protected? Many thanks.

I am an Australian who has bought a second hand Defy Dishmaid dishwasher from a South African work mate. It is a 2/3 year old machine that he bought over from South Africa. When he moved into a new house the machine did not fit his kitchen bench opening much to his frustration so he sold it. When placed in my kitchen it was a tight fit and upon recent inspection the floor pan of the unit, it may have buckled. It worked well until recently when we did some renovations when I needed to remove

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

My kitchenaid dishwasher has a bottom rack allignment problem. Especially when it is fully loaded the right rear pair of wheels often slips down off the bottom track and makes rolling the loaded rack fully in very difficult. I've already had a serviceman come out and he sent me a new bottom rack and set of four rollers and that improves the situation but does not eliminate it. Any similar complaints? Any easy fix before I call the service guy again?


Hello. If you have a new rack and new wheels the only fix to your problem is to either replace the dishwasher all together or NOT put as many items in the bottom rack.

Our Maytag dishwasher, mod MDB9150AWS, has abad lower rack due to rust and prongs coming loose. Maytag sent me a replacement BUT without the center spray tower. It looks like trouble to remove the old one and install it in the new lower rack. Any help would be appreciated.

My catering boss has installed a new midi 50 but the drain is to high and it won't drain. I'm I right in thinking this is a manual drain machine without a drain pump.our old machine had a drain pump. Is there any legal height that a commercial dishwasher has to be installed off the floor in regard to health and safety. thanks.


Lower height can be a violation, higher won't be. Pumps are only used to drain in a high volume environment. Many commercial clippers and washers don't have them. ... Dishwashers
