Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 630.17303406) and it just stopped working. Doesn't drain what's left in the bottom and just makes a humming sound when turned on. Power is good, sounds like the motor is working. Doesn't seem like it is drawing water in. I want to check the pump and motor, anybody have any advice?


Answers :

If nothing obvious like blocked / obstructed outlet pipe
\015\012You need to check if the outlet pump motor in line with the outlet hose is spinning when in the outlet mode. First check if it is spinning by looking at it and see if the small fan is spinning. If it is turnning this means that it has power and the internal "impeler" that pushes the water out has become loose. Remove the pump (easy job) and repair. If it does not spin you need to determine if the 2 push on terminals have power on. If there is voltage and the motor does nut spin this indicates that the pump motor is open circuit and must be replaced.

My Dishwasher stopped working. When I switch it on there is a sound like a motor running, a kind of whirring sound. It sounds as if the machine is working normally but there is no water coming through it. Any ideas? Thanks, Paul


Hi There,\015\012\015\012That's the classic sign of water having leaked under the washing compartment/tub. This causes a "float" to rise, tripping the micro-switch which activates the anti-flood protection. This closes the water inlet val ... Bosch 24 in.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

I have a Maytag portable dishwasher. Lately it has been sounding like the top sprayer is working only sporadically. The cycle begins & it sounds like it doesnt begin spraying until halfway thru the cycle. I open it & check it & see it's not turning. I've cleaned out the holes the best I can. It does this with the rinse cycle also. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.


I will need the full model number of the dishwasher before I can start diagnosing the likely problem. Is it possible to find this please? ... Maytag Dishwashers

My garbage disposal had something stuck in it. i did not know and the sink was backed up. i started the dishwasher and it sounded like the motor was running like a drain emptying...i thought it would stop but continued. i unplugged the dishwasher, freed the garbage disposal and the drain is now clear. i turned on the dishwasher and the sound is the same. the large POT light is lit up and when you try to shut it off it doesnt stop running. i unplugged it for fear of breaking something.

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its

Hi, I have an AEG Favorit 525 dishwasher. It's over 20 years old, but has a panel on the front which matches the kitchen and it has done stirling service over the years. Lately, the knob has been sticking a bit mid cycle, but it has been intermittent. Last night, although the dishwasher sounds like it is working properly, it is not filling with water. Motor sounds like it is trying, but to no avail. If it was human, I would say prostate issues, but I don't think dishwashers have those. A

I have Karcher 520m and when you press the trigger you can hear what sounds like a relay engaging but there is no water pressure, then it will fire up and work, but next time you press the trigger the same thing happens, I have been using it on harvested water, but even connected to the mains it does the same thing. Its now got to the stage it doesnt want to work at all.


The issue you are having is with the unloader valve in the pump. Now with the 520m it is a little bit harder to repair than with more gasoline powered pressure washers but it can still be done. It would be easier if I could just send you a email of t ... Karcher 1750 Psi Elec Pressure Washer

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity. Did the standard trouble shooting with ground fault and on my own electrical system. Been using the same outlet for all the time I have owned the power washer, so distance is no

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.

Our Ingis ADL 834 dishwasher just stopped working last night. Sounded like a fuse went or something out but I've no idea if they even have fuses or reset switches. It's built in so a complete pain to pull it out from the kitchen recess but it may be what we have to do. So at the moment it just doesnt respond at all. Any thoughts welcomed!

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested
