Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishwasher pump caviation

\015 A few months ago I urchased a GE dishwasher. Installed and it seemed to workfine. Reently it has not been getting dishes clean and in the last couple days has not washed dishes at all. When I run it through a cycle, I here a cavatation noise coming from the pump.I pulled it out last night and checked the inlet screen on the unit and it was relatively clean. Reinstalled and ran a cycle. Once again got the cavataion noise. Also notices that the upper rotary arms were not moving. So i added additional water to the unit and ran again and found that the arms rotated as they should.It seems that the unit is not filling with enough water for it to function properly.What is the water psi to be at to fill the unit?What is the timing cycle for the water valve to be open?Any ideas as to the cause?GLD5900N00BB s/n MM833534BthanksDon Filippelli\015

Disposal plugged up and water backed up into dishwasher. Cleared disposal and dishwasher drain line. Checked around sump but dishwasher won't pump out. Sounds like pump is trying to run. I can blow air through the drain hose from the disposal and get bubbles in the water. Turned off breaker for 1 min. then tried reset. Can hear pump humming.


The pump is humming because its still trying to get all the water out of the unit. Deinstall the dishwasher and pull the entire dishwasher out from under your cabinet. Next step would be to disconnect the drain line from the drain pump and check to ... Dishwashers

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDR24SEBLO does not drain 100%. I have removed the drain hose and chcked the sink P-Trap, [it drains thru the garbage disposer]. Unit is 10 years old, otherwise works fine. I am having difficulty removing the impeller and items above the pump to see if it is clogged. Do you think I have a partially clogged pump or a timer issue that prevents the pump from completely emptying the bottom of the dishwasher? We have run the dishwasher 20-30 times since observing the problem.

We recently purchased a new pump for our frigidaire gld4355rf dishwasher. The old one started making grinding noises. When we moved the dishwasher it had leaked due to a failure of an interior seal. Our new pump is now making the same grinding noise but it is not constant. When my husband adjusted the pump by using his hand when he got into a certain position the noise stops. We keep the screens clean. Is there an issue with the pump in this model?

Our kitchen drain clogged recently and water drained back into our VUD141 dishwasher. A plumber cleared the drain, and turned on the DW - which pumped out the standing water.

The plumber who cleared the drain said he didn't DO dishwashers, and I cannot locate the owner's manual since we prepared for a move.

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks

My asko dishwasher ran great until recently. after finishing a load, the pump just continues to run (even when all water has been pumped from the unit and it's running dry) and the display isn't flashing anything (not codes, etc). Worried about destroying the pump, I shut off the washer at the breaker, and it's been a few months since we've had a dishwasher. Every once in a while I'll turn the power on and it just continues doing the same thing - it's stuck in this position/state, so I have to s
