Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hello, My built-in Jenn-Air JDB5900AWB dishwasher door has lost it's springs and comes crashing open. I am pretty handy and would like to try to fix this myself, is it possible? I have a great parts store here that the plumbers use (I was the only person there who wasn't a professional that day!). Where can I see instructions to fix this? Thanks, Miss Fix It

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

While I don`t have diagram or illustration I can give some insight because this is actually very common.

It is a fairly minor procedure to replace it/them. Slide the entire unit out from the cabinet a couple or three inches and you`ll see the spring ( except yours is likey broke...at least one by the sounds of your description ) attached to the side.

**You`ll need to insure your connections will allow you to pull the unit out however, otherwise they - water, power, drain hose - must be disconnected to prevent any damage.**

If you have any reservation to performing this repair on your own please call in a qualified appliance technician.

The parts ( # 740040 @ repairclinic ) and will look like what I attached below...

These are available at most brick & mortar appliance part locations or on-line vendors such as "repairclinic.com" "searspartsdirect.com" or "apwagner.com" to name a few.

Hope that helps move you forward. Thank you for visiting "fixya" today.

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes.

My KitchenAid KUDS01FLSS0 won't turn on when the "Start" button is pushed. Several months ago it began requiring multiple pushes to get it to start. All the cycle lights on the control panel work when pushed - except the "Start" button.

Where can I get the instruction manual for a Bosch Classixx Dishwasher SGS53C12UK? I have bought a second hand dishwasher that has only been used for 6 months. The programme works fine but when I go to use it again - check water shows on the display. I have to tilt the machine back as water is stored at the base of the machine, surely this is not normal? It there a simple solution to this or alot of cost involved with a new part? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

My Brandt VF300 dishwasher is not draining properly. If I empty the residual water (by hand) I can still use it but the water still remains in the bottom at the end of each cycle. How can I fix this? It's driving me nuts! Also the door is not functioning properly something has broken that supports the weight of the door. It can only be shut completely or open completely!

I recently purchases a KitchenAid dishwasher model kudsosfrss from a thrift store (I know, silly me). On intallation I learnd why it was in the thrift store. The Normal and Start/Resume buttons are dead on the keypad, and the washer will not run.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Pro 3400 pressure washer that I got new last year and used for maybe 5 hours and it worked great. Have had it stored since then with stabilizer in the gas (I didn't run it dry) and now it won't run for more than a minute or two without dying. A dealer said it was probably bad gas and I now know that even with the stabilizer I should have run it dry last year before storing. Everything is like brand-new including plug and air filter so it must be the gas/carberator gunk

Maytag My Maytag dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. It is a mdbh940aww. it was never used before. It was wrapped in the plastic wrap when I bought the house in 2005. Now the old one just went and I want to put this one in. It fit nicely, works great but leaks all over the floor. It is level and I check most of the parts. I put a mirror underneath and it looks like the rubber thing isnt looking too good. Do I replace this? If so how?

I have tried cleaning the dishwasher, cleaning and checking all the drains, running through cleaners, vinegar, etc. Nothing seems to work. It used to work great.

We have a 12 year old kitchen aid diswasher model kudpo1ilbs2. It is not cleaning the dishes. Everything is loaded correctly and the proper cycle and soap is being used. We have had no problems until the last 2 - 3 months when a greasy food film is now appearing on the dishes. Some food is left on but not a great deal. The question is what could be wrong and what kind of cost are we talking? We are trying to make an informed decision as to whether fix or buy new. Thank you in advance

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?

We have a Bosch dishwasher supplied with softened water - does a great job. However, on the most recent run, the soap door didn't open properly and the soap puck (we use those two part liquid/powder that dissolve) was only partially dissolved.
