Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The pump doesn't seem to put out enough water pressure to turn the various revolving heads/nozzles in the washer - all washing heads are operable (ie unblocked) while the S shaped nozzle at the base and the small round nozzle at the top/ceiling of the cabinet do revolve slightly or slowly - but the two main nozzles spout water but not enough to revolve Is this a defective pump or a partially blocked pump ? - or something else - I have checked everything else and they appear to be functioning

Won't drain completely. leaves just enough water that you can feel it with your fingertips. no clogs in the lines. could it be the drain pump or something else. same problem occurs on all cycles.


Hi.The most common cause for the problem is a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is used by electronic control to detect water level and stop the drain pump. If the switch is defective, the pump may stop too early. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB7601AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Vulcan Dishlex Executive 14-10 Dishwasher leaking onto floor from right hand side when it was filling at start of cycle.

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

Asko dw20 pump keeps running even with door open and turned off... The machine got to the final cycle then the pump just keeps running and the glass icon (L2) keeps flashing. All the water is not evacuated from the washer. When I power off from the front the drain pump still runs (and water is still not draining). When I power cycle from the mains (waiting 10 seconds) the pump engages again and the water level drops a bit and then stops draining. I have done this until all the water is empty an

The water is not draining from machine, although the pump is obviously trying. It doesn't sound quite right. Kind of a growling noise. It can pump water into tubs when experimenting with ideas, but can't pump hard enough to pump the water into the sink. This is all done with the hose removed so we could check for debris in the line. I've checked the filters and they are clean and clear. This is a used machine a friend gave me, and it's been working beautifully until now.

My kenmore 665 dishwasher will not pump water to the lower and upper spinner arms. The pump entry screen assy seems to have one tear in it and is dirty. However water does come out if I take off the lower arm assy. Is this a sign that the pump is bad and is not pumping enough water to move the arms or is there another problem?


The pump is probably defective (low pressure). Enough to spin the bottom but not the top. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Hi ..I have an Excell gas pressure washer model no. Exwgv2121-3 with Faip 2100 psi 2 gpm vertical shaft pump..the problem is that there is water leaking from every weep hole at the bottom of the pump when running. Oddly enough,the pump still puts out significant pressure but less than it should due to the leaking water. What is the most likely cause of this?..is it the high pressure water seal(s)? If so,how do I repair it?

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers

My Siemens dishwasher has just started to play up. It initially pumps out and fills with water but does not pump water around although it seems to continue through its cycle without pumping through the spray nozzles. I have checked out the pump and it is free and does pump away but does not circulate to wash.


... Siemens 24 in. SL84A305UC Built-in Dishwasher

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any p

The dishwasher doesn't seem to have nearly enough water in it. The upper sprayer arm doesn't seem to be spinning when running (I open the door and look really quick) and the lower one looks like it barely spins and barely sprays water. The dishes are barely wet and the soap is just laying on the bottom. The water is on, there are no kinks in the supply line. It sounds like it is running, and pumps pumping, but being brand new I am not sure what it should sound like. It certainly doesn't sound li

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump
