Having problems with your Dishwashers ?
After working perfectly for almost 10 years, My Miele dishwasher G 664 doesn't fill in water. We replaced the Pressostat and it didn't solve the problem. My technician suggests that the motor is off and advises to replace it ( which is quite expensive) .
What do you suggest ?
In my professional opinion with a 10 year old unit. Buy a NEW unit, with a warranty, and do not spend good money after bad, as they say, a unit of this age will simply continue to fault, over and over, as it gets older.

My GE monogram dishwasher won't drain. The (3 different) repairmen who came to my home checked the hoses, replaced the pump and replaced the motor. Nothing worked, and they suggested that the home warranty people replace the unit. The company, however, won't allow me to do this since we don't have a "diagnosable problem". What else can I check?
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembl ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW9880JSS Built-in Dishwasher
Hello I have a Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher model #MDBH955AWW that is making a lot of noise. I saw an exchange on this site where the expert suggested filling the washer to just above the heating element, running it, and seeing if that solved the problem. I tried that and it solved the problem. I believe the expert said this indicates the fill valve needs to be replaced. Can you tell me which valve I need and advise me on how to change the valve?

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

Hello, I've been working on a Bosch Dishwasher. It has no display of any kind, and there's a strange grunting sound coming from the wash motor when power is applied (like if you had just plugged it in), as if it's trying to start. The junction box is getting 120V, all connections to the junction box are fine, and the display board and the main control board are all getting the proper voltage. Now, we've already replaced the main control board and the problem persists. The tech line suggested

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same. It will build a small amount of pressure, spray for a few seconds, then the pressure dropps to almost nothing. Any help ap

LG dishwasher LDS4821BB just started making a new grinding sound while washing. No similar sounds while filling or draining, so I wouldn't think it is the motor assembly like many answers suggest. We installed it March 2009. This sound may be similar to one which led to the motor assembly being replaced while still under warranty about nine months ago. Unfortunately, the LG repairman was too hard of hearing to be able to diagnose that replacement, so he did it based on our description of

We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little.

We have a +11 year old Bosch SHU3006/UC/U06 that never leaves the wash cycle. We had to stop it during our last test run at 3 hours. Chat advise is suggesting a water temperature problem (I origionall thought the timer), suggesting that the cycle will not advance until it hits a set temperature (170 degrees). We checked and noticed that the water in the machine was only around 90 degrees during a wash cycle. We do not have exploded views or parts drawings, nor electrical schematics. I wou
