I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy. I used J.B Zimmerman in Blue Ball,P

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel project in 1994 for a price of $800.00. That was our mistake. We had a converter installed to accomadate the 3 phase power supply. So we have this converter running 24 hours a day using up electricity and we use the dishwasher four times per year. I am wondering if we could replace the motor o

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, Model FDB15000LFCO. Serial No. TH74135326 purchased 10-19-07 from Lowes. The washer stopped working almost immediately. On December 5, 2007 the computer brain for the washer was replaced by Able Appliance Service, LLC, Swannanoa, NC (828) 296-1017. Four months ago my electric bill for three months was almost twice my average use for the time period. We stopped using the dishwasher for one month, and the bill returned to normal.

Kenmore My dishwasher was in my home when I purchased my home. It is a Kenmore Ultra wash 2, I am not sure which settings to use for basic dishwashing. When I run it it runs for over 1 hour. I don't want it to run that long.


Make sure you run water in your sink until it is hot before you start the dishwasher. On the newer dishwashers they will fill and drain until the water is hot enough so it takes longer if it starts with cold water. Normal time for a basic wash coul ... Kenmore 15129 Built-in Dishwasher

I just bought a used LG LDS 5811ST stainless steel built in dishwasher. The previous owner said he bought it 4 years ago. It's in great shape but doesn't work. It powers up but the water is not pumping into the dishwasher. The previous owner said that he thought it was the pump. He said he took it apart once and cleaned a bunch of crud out of some hoses and it worked for a while then started making funny noise and stopped. When i got it home i powered it up and connected water hose. It seems to

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 5 years old. Does this mean I can never leave for two weeks at a time and come home to a working dishwasher?


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommend ... GE Dishwashers

Bosch SHX68M05UC/46 I purchased subject dishwasher DEC 2007 expecting a wonderful experience and it has been a nightmare. My newly washed dishes smell like garbage. Opening my dishwasher is the most unpleasant experience and makes me question the safey of using the dishwasher. I have had the warranty plumber (Betty's Maytag, Springfield, VA) out and they alleged no problem because the drainage was working. I had two other plumbers check the problem. While they recognized there was a problem, the


It sounds like you've had many eyes on this already, but it sounds like the drain hose isn't looped behind the unit.

Broken dishwasher We recently had a plumbing problem that resulted in the kitchen sink overflowing and flooding the kitchen. The cabinets to the left of the sink were full of water and the dishwasher to the right of the sink will not work. It says it is washing and using two different washing modes, but I cannot get it to start over. What can I do? It is a Kenmore Quiet Guard 2.


If there is no water in the dishwasher - i.e. it had finished a cycle, but now it is just the indicator lights that are on, then the chances are some water has got into the control system. It will probably dry out, given time. (maybe a number of days ... Dishwashers

I have a 6th sense dishwasher purchased new October 2004. It has been working properly and then has just stopped the next time I tried to use it - it will not turn on no matter what buttons I push - no response. I have checked the power out let with another appliance and that works so it is not the power supply from the power point. I can only think it must be a fuse or the controller. Can you please advise best course of action? Thanks Helen

Kenmore Elite Drawer Dishwasher model 465.13329600 Normal Wash and High Temp Wash buttons stay lit, as does green Lock button. The Start/Resume button and the red button on the front of the drawer keep flashing. I've tried key combos suggested above, but nothing seems to work. Even tried shutting it off at the circuit breaker to reset it, and that didn't work either. This ****** was purchased in 2006 or 2007, and hasn't been used very much. WTF?

The rinse stopped some way through and an error message displayed (cannot remember). Tried to run again and now the dsiplay is locked. It turns on with usual sound, but none of the buttons work. They make a noise when pressed but nothing on the dsipay changes. I suspect that the outlet was frozen and that I should not have tried again - too im
