Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

No instructions came with the dishwasher and i dont know where the water line goes i cant find it


Answers :

The water line hooks up underneath the dishwasher, it connects to a water valve, usually blue in color. You'll need to make sure the water line is slid underneath the dishwasher, and then make sure the bottom kick-plate is removed from the dishwasher, to do this.

It went thru the whole cycle and when I opened it up - there was water still left in the bottom - hit the cancel/drain button and nothing happened. Unhooked the drain line to the drain pipe under the sink and no water came out. How do I find out if it is the pump ? If I take it out - what do I need to look for and what trouble shoot things do I need to know. I live about one hour from the nearest town - so I would like to find out the problem - before I call a repairman and maybe fix it myse

My LG dishwasher -LDF7810st has been a huge problem from the beginning. However I will just focus on the current issue. Previously it was leaking and I kept towels under the dishwasher. Then one night there was a deluge of water all over the place. One guy says the seal is bad then another no its the whole seal around the dishwasher is bad. No one seems to know and I dont want to spend $250 to find out. I remember a previous post that said their was a design flaw with a part of this but cannot f

I need to replace the heating element and electronic control board on my Kitchenaid KUDS01DL Dishwasher. I have the parts. I have been able to find directions on how to replace the heating element, but am not finding anything on the electronic control board. I don't even know where this part goes.

Hi there My Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher is tripping out the fusebox RCD and I think there is an earthing problem. It will run for 3 or 4 minutes and then the house alarm goes off and the cooker clock needs resetting! I have tried to look in the back but don't know how to remove the panels. I've tried tipping it to 45 degrees to see if there is any water in the innards but non water came out. I have no idea what to look for - and no manual to help me get inside the beast! Thanks in advance.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

Maytag Dishwasher I would like to know the proper water level after DW fills. Older Whirlpool units a quick guide was when water just covered heater. I have a new D/W and the water supply is difficult to access, there is a kink in the water line slowing the water flow. The D/W fills to bottom of heater, but because the unit is so quiet I can't determine if it is timing out or working properly. I intend to repair water line when counter work is done. Thanks for any help Gary


Newer Maytags should fill close or up to the heater not over. Sounds like your alright for now but I would get that water line fixed. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

There is gum stuck somewhere in my dishwasher drain line. The water won't go down. I took the inside apart and can see the hole where the drain water goes. I disconnected the drain hose under the sink. I got the water to drain out when there was alot in there, but now it won't drain again. I blew compressed air from a compressor backwards through the hose and it makes a big splash and bubbles inside the dishwasher, but the water still won't go down. I put Boiling hot water and vinager in there t

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..

Maytag dishwasher- Model # WU 502 serial # 145 192 EP- 03 series Water builds up in the bottom of the dishwasher, does not overflow but will not go down. Nothing appears wrong in the drains. Dishwasher is connected to the kitchen sink drain. Tried a seperate rinse cycle but did nothing to eleviate the problem just made the water rise a bit but still did not overflow out of the washer. This washer is old and I cannot find the manual that came with it.
