I have a Candy CD650 dishwasher which is not washing properly. Basically, the detergent tablets seem to be getting stuck in the tray. Most times I open the door, the tablet is a pile of mush inside the tray. Other times it is on the bottom of the dishwasher - again a pile of mush! Sometimes, it starts the program & sounds like it's about to start a wash cycle, but then gives up! it gives one short woosh, the stops again. Any ideas how to fix this? I don't have a manual so can't look there.

Model#lds5811bb--started making noise coming from the water inlet area(bottom left). 3/4's of the way through the cycle, noise became louder and then an error code "le" came on. We tried turning breaker off, then we tried in the rinse only cycle, but 5 minutes into it the "le" code error came on again. I'm fairly handy, so I'm not sure what part I can replace to maybe solve the problem. I can't afford to spend a couple of hundred dollars for a repair man to fix it. I'll appreciate any suggestion


The LE code is a locked motor code. Something may have gotten into the pump impeller. I would take the screens and filters off and clean the and check the pump for something stuck in it. It could also be the motor going bad but I would check the obvi ... LG Dishwashers

Bosch KGV2620GB/03 Hi, I have a Bosch KGV2620GB/03 fridge freezer (bottom freezer, free-standing, the product listed below isn't right) and the light in the fridge won't switch off when the door closes. Any ideas? I assume it's something to do with the switch that registers the door has closed, but not sure how to fix. It's an electronic control, so there's no temperature wheel/switch inside, and we don't have the user guide (which I also can't find online!). Any help much appreciated. Dan

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

I bought a secondhand Miele 2830 LaPerla dishwasher. I hooked it up today. As soon as I pressed the start button, i heard the pump anf it gave me an F68 error and water leaked out of the bottom in such a way that I could not see where it was coming from. I know f68 means the circulation pump is running when it isn't supposed to. Since I heard the pump, I imagine that is working. So any advice on how to fix this?


The hoses may not be connected properly or are cracked. This is causing leakage inside dishwasher and the flood switch to operate. The dishwasher starts the pump to empty the dishwasher and avoid damage of water flooding the electric parts.Yo ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any p

The rotating arm at the bottom of my LG intello dishwasher keeps falling off. It is the stainless bit that sits ontop of the rotating bit at the bottom of the machine. A bit like a boomerang shape and is seperate from the arm at the bottom. I am not sure if it just needs a washer put on it. I did try this but it just falls off all the time. It has 4 little grips on the bottom but just wont stay on the arm? Has something come off or worn away for it not to stay on. It just swivels round an
