Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Bosch dishwasher (SMI5072), bought in 2005 second-hand but working OK. It has always been a little slow to get going, and I had initially thought the clockwork program dial was getting stuck. Then I concluded that it had something to do with the filling up process, and I thought it must be because the water was rather cold and paid no more attention to it. This has meant that it seemingly takes ages to get through a cycle. Yesterday I put it on, left it and got on with some work. An h


Answers :

There is a screen inside your water inlet valve that may be clogged. You will need to see if you are getting power to the water inlet valve when the machine calls for water. If you have power replace the water inlet valve ( not uncommon in older Bosch) If you do not have power you will need to check the float switch and or control.

I have mold in my dishwasher. This happened about 6 mos ago and I used the vinegar and scrub method to get rid of it...it was a pain in the fanny! Now the mold is back...the dishwasher has also not been drying the dishes very well either, although in truth it never has. There must be some other reason that the mold is back! Oh, and I've used Jet Dry since I bought the machine 7 years ago, and have tried the ''leave the door open to dry the dishes'' .... any thoughts?


Get rid of the mold - Pour about 2 cups of bleach in the dishwasher with about 1 cup of salt, and a gallon of cold water, use the light wash, not heated. Make sure when you start the cycle it doesn't drain first or you lose the bleach. Also I don't ... Dishwashers

We have a kitchenaid dishwasher, kudi22ot3, installed in 1992. It is not cleaning dishes even thought the tub is getting water, and we've run dishwasher magic through it a couple of times. The dishes will get clean for a few runs, and then will stop getting clean. Is it time for a new dishwasher or can this one be fixed? Thank you.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we give up on this thing and replace it. Only 3 years old. Any recommendations? We assummed the newer dishwashers would not need pre-rinse by hand but would clean.

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,
