Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Why wont my dishwasher empty,it goes through all the program but just wont empty,it was fine when we were using it before we moved.


Answers :

The drain pump motor is in line with the outlet pipe. First check if the outlet pipe is not blocked or obstructed. The motor can be tested by removing the 2 electrical push on connectors and connecting mains supply to the 2 terminals. If the motor spinns it indicates that the motor is OK and that the fault is then with the electronic switching circuit (not normaly a home repair). If the motor does not spin it indicates that the motor is open circuit and needs replacing. (easy job). You can also spin the motor small cooling fan by hand just to determine if it runs freely like it should and is not obstructed by dirt inside the water channel of the pump.

The dishwasher has three arms in it. The top and bottom arm do not rotate. The middle arm rotates fine. The arms will move when manually munipulated but do not spill while the dishwasher is on. There was a loud grinding the first time the dishwasher was used and it seemed to work fine but after about two months of use the arms will not rotate.


Sounds like maybe some rinsing salt was spilled when the salt reservoir was filled the first time (or broken glass, this always used to be an issue in catering) and got pumped through, lodging in the gap between the arm and it's mounting. this can ro ... Maytag Dishwasher

Kleenmaid dishwasher wont distribute detergent during wash - the cap doesn't seem to open consistently. I tried powerballs (finish), now I am using a powder and rinse aid. The posder is either not used during the wash or half used. We only moved in two months ago and I can't get it to work. It has worked about twice.

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through


I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help! And I rinse the dishes too, so I have no idea where all these "crumbs" are coming from. Will check back for updates. Hope to ... Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Lifestyler Expanse 1500, Model #831.297330 that was in water in a hurricane. After months of letting it dry out, I tried to use it. It would be fine for a couple of minutes, then go as fast as it could, then go to Error. Now it just goes a couple of seconds, then goes to Error.

Check the top of the cabinet after the unit has started to wash the water droplets is the key. if you see water droplets on the very top all over then the unit circulation pump is working. If that checks out then check the jet dry compartment. here ... Bosch SHE4AM06UC 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher

I have just moved into a new house with an Asko Dishwasher. It is not working. I program it, the icon for the cycle I have chosen lights up in red, I press start, that lights up in red, the water runs in for about 30 seconds and then nothing more happens. This happens on every wash cycle that I attempt to use. It does not appear to be on time delay as that icon does not light up. Also I have left it for a number of hours after I have tried to start it and still nothing happens. I would appreciat

I have a Whirlpool ADP6515. It's been working fine for about 2 years now but recently cycles are not completing properly, it can run for 30-40 minutes depending upon cycle. The start light is flashing a 4 times repeatedly, I think this happens when it moves from a wash to a pump cycle but not sure. We have to hold down the start button to force it to go to the end of the cycle and the the lights stop. If we do that we can then use the dishwasher the next time, but only after we force it to go to

My dishwasher seems to go through the cleaning process fine, but then I think it skips the rinsing off process and goes straight to the drying process. All the dishes and the inside of the washer have the soap that has been dryed and baked onto it from the drying process. I have used the same soap and the same amount for over 1 yr. The last 3 washes in a row seemed to skip the rinsing part. I have a maytag MDB7851AW

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers
