Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a dishlex DX301 dishwasher and the soap dispencer never fully emptys out. (it may do 1 in ten times) i have tried drying out the box so that it will not clog but this does not seem to work. When i look closely at it i cannot see how the flap open to empty. Is it due to a poor design fault??

When I first contacted you, I couldn't get the soap door to close in my dishwasher. As suggested I got the part. I now have the door apart. When I work the soap latch I can't see what closes the door. The part I was going to replace seems to be working correctly. over


Well IF the piece, the latch, seems to be working OK, then the only other thing it can be, is the Electronic "Drive" from the controller board, or a disconnection between the Controller and the Latch, Sometimes it can be a "Sensor" not allowing the ... Dishwashers

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

I have this model dishwasher and last year I spent close to $300.00 having this control panel replaced and as soon as the warranty went p it stopped working again, but there is a green light that blinks next to right side where it says clean. It seems like it is blinking in sequence.. I cannot afford to spend this kind of money to have this fixed again. The co. that has the contract with kitchenaid is horrible and do not double check their work. The only thing tey care about is the bck.


Sorry to hear about the trouble with service. I have put together a sheet to show why the clean light blinks and how to reset the control so you can use it. Let me know if you have questions I would be happy to assist. Here is the link to the instruc ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01IL - Multiple Color Built-In Dishwasher

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I


Yes its probably the little latch that holds the door closed thats worn out. ... Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts. Can you help me locate the proper place for these 2 plastic parts?


Hello, \015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa.\015\012\015\012I believe the parts you are referring to are likely the blocks in each corner of the outer door panel. These have been a sticking point for many I tech over ... Bosch Dishwashers

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.


Hi,\015\012\015\012First off, sorry to hear that you replaced the control board for nothing..in hindsight. So if I understand what you're saying is this, You cannot select any cycles and the unit won't start...because the start button is ... Dishwashers

I have a GE Quiet Power 3 that has completly died. I cannot get a light to come on or anything to beep when pressing buttons. I checked the circuit breaker and outlet and they are both working fine. I tried pressing and holding the reset button on the front control panel and nothing. It seems to have just died at 2 years old. Anyone have a solution? GE wants $80 just to look at it.


A dead set simply means a cut off of power supply. Open the back cover of your dishwasher . Locate the area where the AC cord is located and look for the plastic fuse holder which is usually installed in one of the AC cord line open it and replace t ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore 665.16039401. The 3 right hand buttons on the keypad; Delay Hours, Cancel/Drain and Start/Resume do not respond and I cannot start the washer. Doing the self-diagnostic test by pressing "Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash" results in all of the LED's lighting and the washer starting a full 20 minute self-test cycle in which all functions seems to work properly. Opening and closing the door during this testing stops and then re-starts the washer appropriately

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?


To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latc ... Maytag 24 in. MDB3700 Built-in Dishwasher

Tricity Bendix DH090 water valve closes too early. Insufficient water causes program to stop before first heating cycle. If I switch off, open the machine & pour an extra pint of water in, shut the door & switch on again the wash takes place and completes perfectly to specification. OK so the problem seems to be that level detector No 1 switches off the water inlet valve early and level detector No 2 (apparently) halts the cycle since it detects insufficient water in the machine. I cannot see t

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped.

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

I purchased my Kenmore Elite dishwasher, model # 8542514, in 2003 & replaced the control board in 2006. Recently, I accidently opened the dishwasher during a wash cycle, but it continued working once I closed it. It seemed to work fine for a few more weeks. Now, however, I get nothing--no lights....just doesn't start up. I tried pressing all the code solutions listed on this site, but no luck so far. It seems to me that the control board/panel should last more than 3-4 years.
