I have a older Simpson 880 Dishwasher, 6 program, (circa 1995) that I got second hand. It works quite well, but due to its usage the dial which has the program on it has worn and is very difficult to read. so what I need I suppose is another program dial or someone who can tell me via a photo what is marked on a dial you can actually read as mine is worn off and is for the most part indecipherable. I can read where program 5,6 and 7 are but not anything else, I got a instruction book from ELectr


In regards to your program dial, there is a number 4 2 clicks in front of the 5. That's for normal wash. There's #3 for heavy wash, a #2 for pot scrub and #1 for pre-wash. There are two "clicks" in between each #. There's an R for "rinsing and a D fo ... Dishwashers

My Bosch Classic Electronic Dishwasher has stopped mid cycle and the "Check Water" light is on. It won't drain at all. The detergent is still in its receptacle. I have tried the reset button on the dial but that doesn't fix it. I have also tried the old, turn it off, turn it back on routine which didn't work either. Please help!!

I have a SHU3032UC BOSH Dishwasher for a couple of years now. Always worked as expected. Latetly, the dishwasher never stops. It looks stuck on an "unknown cycle"... The cycle dial stays at the "bottom" cycle (there's nothing written). If I turn it 1-2 "clicks", the dishwasher continues its work and ultimatly finishes with very good cleaning results. Once, I open the dishwasher when it was stuck in the "bottom" position, and there was hot watter at the bottom. Here's what I've tried so

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

The contol lock LED is illuminated on the front panel of my Maytag dishwasher. (Neither my wife nor I pressed the control lock for 3 seconds!) We've tried to extinguish it by pressing it for 3 to 5 seconds, but it remains ON. We've turned off the breaker to the dishwasher overnight, but when we turn the breaker back On, the contol lock LED comes on. We simply can't unlock the control panel. We can tell that all of the other buttons work just fine because pressing any of them causes the 3 Sec LED

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support
