Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a samsung dishwasher model # dmr77lhs. Their is water at the bottom of the dishwasher. Now the dishwasher will notstart. I have checked the upper lower and middle nozzles and they were all cleared. What should I do next?


Answers :

Most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter if your machine has access to this and make sure the drain pump can turn freely.
Hope this helps.
If the standing water was there immediately after the new dishwasher was\015\012 ran the first time I would suspect a restriction in the discharge hose \015\012or a clog just past where it connects to the plumbing system. Start by \015\012checking the discharge hose for kinks. If there are no kinks provide \015\012more information about how it is connected and how it is routed so I can\015\012 offer more suggestions.

\015\012If it develop over a few days or weeks after the install I suspect \015\012something is getting into the dishwasher and clogging the screen where \015\012the water drains. Remove the lower rack (it should just lift out) and \015\012check around the bottom center for junk that my be clogging the screen \015\012or grate.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t

I followed 'Mindcell's' advice on fixing my Kenmore QuietGuard 4 dishwasher, and I managed to clear out all the food particles that have accumulated. I suspect that is probably why the middle spray arm has not been very effective. However, in my repair, as I was screwing in the star screw that holds the cover of the foodscreen (the lower most star screw), I managed to overturn it and break it. Thus, the food screen is only held by a plastic clip, and from what I can gather, pressure from a

Hi experts! The middle wash arm in the dishwasher (underneath the top tray) does not seem to be spinning resulting in dirty glassware etc. I have checked the arm for debris which is clear and clean.

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.
