Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a GE Potscrubber 1230 Dishwasher, and the soap cup will not open duing the cycle, so that the wash cycle will not complete, but runs indefinitely until I open it, open the soap cup manually, and then run the cycle again. Is this an easy fix?


Answers :

There is a wax switch in the cup that has failed.

Replacing the cup is your only fix.

Reply with the model # and I can help you locate a replacement.

Thanks!!

Help! My dishwasher runs thru it's cycles but when I open it I find my second detergent cup still full of soap and my dishes still dirty. I have an older maytag dishwasher but have never had this problem with it. I've tried running a short prewash cycle with the soap despenser open to wash out the soap from the open second despenser but it doesn't wash it out. I know water is coming out of the spray arms but can't see if the arms are spinning although when running it does sound like they ar

I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working? It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!

Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle. Then I have to rewash with no soap to simulate the rinse and again manually drain (cancel) the cycle. This was a $650 dishwasher. I am not sure how to reset the controller or even trouble shoot for an error code. Any suggestions?

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or

The lid to the soap compartment for the second soaping no longer opens. How can I fix this? It will no longer start a heavy duty or pots and pans wash. When I tried to run a pots and pans wash, water leaked out from the door. This has never happened on any other wash cycle. This isn't a really old dishwasher. Only about 8 years old.

Kenmore 665.16529000 When we put the dial to pots and pans the diswasher fills up and cycles through, when the dials moves to normal wash, it fills up and cycles through again. When the dial gets to light wsh we can hear the motor running but nothing is happening, but the soap door opens soon after. The heating light comes on and the inside of the dishwasher gets so hot that it has melted our big plastic tumbler cups on the top rack and makes the counter top extremely hot to the touch.

After running a cycle, there is some water in the tub and the soap dispenser is open but the soap has only run down the inside of the door. It does not sound like there is a vigorous spray during the wash cycle. Opening the door during the wash cycle reveals only a little water reaching the upper arm.

Frigidaire model F71C12PHS0 is not washing, it goes through the cycle and when the door is opened the soap container is open with soap still in it.

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray.

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
