Whirlpool DU920PWKB0 Dishwasher We may be in need of a lower dishrack assembly. I noted that this part does not come with the pressure cone. How can one remove the pressure cone from the old rack to insert in the new? I don't want to break it. (Even if I ordered a new rack and a new cone, I'd still have to insert it -- a round part in a square hole.)

Maytag MDB6600AWW Unit is approx 3 years old it was finishing a load and stopped part way through sticking on heated dry. I don't know if it was there in the cycle or if the diagnostics on the board sent the message there. The light now will not shut off or move from the heated dry. I have disconnected 120 volts, removed the panel to check wiring, removed board and reassembled nothing resets the heated dry light and nothing works. I have gone through manual function test, sales floor demo test,

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

After the wash has been completed, when I open the door, the bottom of the dishwasher is full of water. It does not spill out, but the only way to empty it is to use a bowl and manually remove it. There is no apparent waste blocking the exit nor any object. Do you know what the problem could be? Many thanks in advance!!! Ms Eribenne

I have a Bosch SMU2046UC/14 dishwasher that makes some noise but will not start the wash cycle. I found that the noise was from the timer motor by removing the front of the door. The timer continues to run and but only advances until half way through the wash cycle where it stops permanently. Is this a problem with the timer or could something else be causing this problem.

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v

Poor drying, mold building up in the tub. The condensing drying system is not working well. I pulled the unit out and removed a panel on the left side (facing washer). Saw that the plastic box that appears to be set up for moist air removal and vents to the tub had considerable mold in it at the top of one of the passage ways. Looked like it might be blocking air flow. Could this be a cause of poor drying? Can this unit be removed and cleaned? Also soap isn't dissolving. Bad board controllin

Due to the my Indesit IDL 530 dishwasher not draining properly, I turned it onto it's left side, removed the base plate and pump and checked for blockages in the pump and associated hoses, which were all clear.

I cannot find a relevant wiring diagram online and therefore cannot tell which is the correct way around. I then guessed and re-assembled it anyway, and as you might have g

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?
