\015\012If you can provide a model number I can guide you on "how to" but generally there are no special tools required.

Won't start After two months of no use my dishwasher won't work. I can hear motor running but no water. We tried cleaning by filling with water (priming motor) but nothing happens. Now the dishwasher if full with water, motor makes noise but nothing is happening. Help!!


It sounds like you have a food blockage or some blockage between where the water fills up and where it goes into the pump you need to take out the water wand (the rotating thing with water coming out) only the bottom one.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 630.17303406) and it just stopped working. Doesn't drain what's left in the bottom and just makes a humming sound when turned on. Power is good, sounds like the motor is working. Doesn't seem like it is drawing water in. I want to check the pump and motor, anybody have any advice?


If nothing obvious like blocked / obstructed outlet pipe\015\012You need to check if the outlet pump motor in line with the outlet hose is spinning when in the outlet mode. First check if it is spinning by looking at it and see if the small fan ... Dishwashers

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

Frigidaire Dishwasher won't start (lights cycle but no water/motor) Model Number: FDB1050REB2 Brand: Frigidaire Our dishwasher is 1.25 years old and already not working (grrr!). When it is turned on, the lights cycle through like a normal wash cycle, but the motor isn't engaged nor does any water cycle through. This happened about a month ago and I took everything apart to make sure all of the connections were secure and it started working again...not this time. Any ideas?

I have a CDA CW494 dishwasher, which is a rebadged Whirlpool. The pump has been changed by a service engineer, using a Whirlpool part instead of the original, apparently it is superior. It seemed to work OK, but now the main jets only squirt for a short burst when the motor stops or starts. The rest of the time the motor can be heard running, but no water comes from the jets. Could the motor be running in reverse?


I would check to see if there is any blockage in the area of the dishwasher where the water collects to be recirculated through the pump back into the washer. It sounds as though the water isn't being allowed into the pump enough to continue the was ... Dishwashers

Water is not going into my dishwasher --worked for 13 months fine and now having a problem. When I turn it on the motor runs and rattles - louder than before, but no water is going into the dishwasher. We did nothing different and have not changed anything.


Try running a diagnostic run on the washer. Push heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal on your cycle selection panel. After you push that sequence all the lights will light up and then it will go through a test run. This fixed my washer that had the ... Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher

My sink got clogged and now my bosch dishwasher SHU43C05UC wont fill with water. I read on line that it most likely is the float is stuck and to access the front kickplate needs to be removed. Is there a diagnostic test that I can do that will display on the LED to make sure that this is the problem. How involved is it to unstick the float. Can it be done without moving the dishwasher and just working from the kickplate area?

Dear sirs, I own a Kenmore dishwasher Model # 665.17039400. The clean light flashes 7 times and then repeats. It will not run, only the drain button will work.

Dishwasher stopped cleaning but appears to run through cycles. Possibly water starved. The bottom "sprayer has some water coming through the holes but is not spinning, (although spins freely by hand). The top and middle "sprayers" definately aren't functioning. Stopped working suddenly, (not a gradual change).


HI. I agree with your assessment. There may be some sort of blockage within the hose assembly. I recommend to inspect all hoses that correspond to the actual recirculation pump. Check the drain hoses as well. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01ILBS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

PDW9280J10SS dishwasher has been in use for about 3 years. The control panel is not working properly. I use the up/down arrows and it turns on heated dry etc. When I push the heated dry button, it changes the lights to the different cycles (which is what the arrow keys used to do). The normal wash light won't come on, the only setting that seems to wash a full cylce is antibacterial. It seems like something burned out. What should I be looking at as a possible cause/fix.
