Dishwasher Normally, after the dishwasher cleans the load, it displays green light next to clean. Once the door is opened, the light goes off an dishwasher is ready for next load. But from few days, after opening the dishwasher door, the clean light does not go off, it remains lit. Dishwasher doe snot reset for next cycle. So, I have to go in the basement and trip the main power to dishwasher. That resets the dishwasher. This needs to be done before each cycle. Not sure how to resolve the issue.


Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles \015\012are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door \015\012during the drying cycle. ... Dishwashers

Bad smell This is more of a general question. When I run the dishwasher there is a bad smell as it fills with water. It comes out of the sink/garbage disposal. I have cleaned out the line that comes from the garbage disposal to the drain and that doesn't stop the smell. Is there a line that needs to be cleaned from the dishwasher to the sink or how can I fix this issue? My dishwasher, at the drain, has water standing and it smells. I think it is there from condensation as the dishwasher, unknow

We have an E39927 dishwasher that dumped a lot of water on the floor--seems to me from the last time this happened there is a filter or clean-out section that needs cleaning.

My KichenAid KUDS011 has functioned well until this morning. When I push any of the buttons on the keypad, nothing happens. I noticed there is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher from the last dish washing. Also, I've heard there is a screen or similar part in the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned occasionally. I haven't figured out how to remove the bottom center of the dishwasher to access this for cleaning.


If the drain or screen are clogged, the machine may no operate.Unscrew the the 2 long screws on bottom, remove the basket, there may be a flapper under the basket, For pics, see here: http://www.contractorssolutions.com/dishwashers. ... Dishwashers

I own a GE Profile Built-in Dishwasher Model number is PDW7880G00SS, Serial number is FF7872828.  We have recently been having major cleaning issues with it, especially the top shelf i.e. the glasses.  There is always dried up debris on them.  We always run the water hot and run it on "added heat" cycle.  I was wondering if there is a filter, or an area in the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned out?  Even if I put perfectly clean dishes in there, they will come out dirty, which leads me to thin

I have a Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB4100. Are there directions for removing the cleaning equipment in the bottom of the dishwasher? I do have the manual and there are no instructions to do this. I am getting scummy buildup around the drain and suspect it needs a good thorough cleaning that I can't do without taking it apart. I have tried to clean away the "gook" but it reappears after a few washes and I can't reach the back. Thank you, Cara

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c

This is a 3 yr old dishwasher with very gentle use. It now is not cleaning glasses....even when rinsed before hand the glasses are still stained and spotted.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean?
