Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

If my dishwasher is not getting water in and it is over 15 yrs old, is it smarter to replace it or should I go to expense of getting it fixed? I am not sure what the cause is, but I do know it is not getting water.


Answers :

If it is only water inlet screen for the input of water or the input automated valve I would question keeping it. Sometimes it is better to invest in a quick fix.

Hi I have a LG dishwasher, model LD-2052WH/LD-2052SH/LD-2052MH. The machine is about 30 months old, and used very seldom. In the last two weeks we noticed a very loud "grinding" sound emmiting from the machine. This sound usually happens when you switch the machine on as the water if filling or the wash blades are rotating. What is the cause of this, and how can I get it fixed?

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.
