Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I just filled a bobbin with the balance wheel released. Now I can't tighten it so tht I can sew. I turn the little wheel inside the bigger one to tighten it and it just keeps turning,not tightening. This is an old White, a gift in 1957. Please refer me to a sewing machine expert as there is no option here for that category.

This sounds like the cog has either worn down or broken off. You will probably need to have it replaced

My Bosch Classixx (about 10 years old) dishwasher won't fill The problem has only started since I pulled it out and cleaned! The programme sounds are as normal but no water enters the machine. I detected a small leak on the inlet pipe and tightened that. The machine drains when I add water manually though it has made a lot of gurgling noises for some time now when draining. When tipped on its side water comes out of the bottom of the machine (not entirely clear but not dirty either). When upri

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!

I want to remove the white plastic wheel that propels water into the circulating arms. It is held with one screw which I cannot seem to be able to loosen. This white plastic wheel has 2 small holes in the surface which are perhaps there for some special tool to hold the wheel stationary in order to loosen the screw holding this wheel in place. Underneath this gray plastic housing is the heating element. I want to remove it in order to clean accumulated deposits of gunk.

I own a Bosch dishwasher. It is about 5 years old. In the last year I have noticed that is isn't cleaning well and that there is a white residue on all the dishes and especially on the inside of the dishwasher.

Since then the white residue has deminished, but now the dishes are not clean when I run the dishwasher. I notice the white residue mostly on the silverware w

Hi I have a LG dishwasher, model LD-2052WH/LD-2052SH/LD-2052MH. The machine is about 30 months old, and used very seldom. In the last two weeks we noticed a very loud "grinding" sound emmiting from the machine. This sound usually happens when you switch the machine on as the water if filling or the wash blades are rotating. What is the cause of this, and how can I get it fixed?
