Hi,

Before thinking about replacement... pour a couple of cups of water in the dishwasher and let them soak the seal for overnight...
Then if it don't go give the motor a spin...just to make sure it will go...
if that don't work you motor is toasted...that can be a much more challenging repair...and kind of expensive...

The motor assembly is shown in this diagram. If the dishwasher is not completing the cycle then you may want to open the pump assembly and replace the seals. But usually the seals getting dry usually causes leaks. My view is that if there are no leaks then you should not open the pump assembly. Best to try a few washes and see if it fixes itself. It might be just some rust on the armature which will rub off after a few runs.

\015\012But if the problem persists then better to replace the whole assembly (part 310).

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks

Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor


Any leaks from connection at pump to gun and wand assembly if so the valve is detecting leakage and open up again without u squeezing trigger it builds up in the head.if your trigger gun is leaking internally then you will need to replace the gun thi ... Pressure Washers

SHX46B I have a 4 year old Dishwasher that filled up with clean water on it's own and leaked on the floor. There appears to ba a float switch switch on the very bottom of the unit that runs the pump if this happens. It won't stop until I remove the water caught in the plastic base on the very bottom of the unit. Drain is clear and this machine has worked fine until now. I'm thinking it may be a bad or leaky fill valve but how can I check?

Installed an older model dishwasher for a friend power works oes throuth the cycles but its not pumping water into the uniT there is no clogs and i hear the pump turn on. unsure why its not getting water into the unit another friend thinks its cause the air tube isnt hooked up but i think it may be something more then that any ideas


You will need to disassemble the bottom part where the bottom rotary spray nozzle is(the part that shoots water upwards). The impeller might have come loose or it is clogged in that area. ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom. We dont think it's water pressure and it was working fine until recently.Could it be an electrical problem with the signal to fill properly not getting through? Thanks

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

I have a Maytag DWU8250BAX and the thing leaks like crazy. I just replaced the door gasket, but that is not the problem. When I took a closer look at the door it seems as though the water is getting up and into the door through a space in the bottom of the door. It seems to me like there should be another door seal to fill a gap that sits between the door hinges. If anyone knows if there should be a seal here and then what the part number might be that would be great. Thanks!

My dishwasher (Optima G2420) had an error F13 for sometime. By turning it off and restarding it would work. But now drain/intake light flashes and nothing is happening. We have checked the triple filter, the filter where water comes in ect. It drains the water but it appears that it cannot take water in. There is a white unit that the intake water goes in and I think that might be the proble.

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher

My Bosch Classixx is not filling with water and no sound of the pump trying to work either. I fiddled around with it as it was not cleaning bowls properly on the bottom shelf - plates and cutlery were fine! Think I might have disturbed the round dome thing - is this the "float switch"? There is also about an inch in the bottom of the filter area which I have cleaned out of gunk but still with water there. Any ideas please!

Am15 dishwasher problem: The pad will only turn on and off. Can't get it to cycle. Was on cycle 4 needed cycle 1. Got it to cycle 1, but now on and cycle does not work and when I push the off button it reboots to on. I put new pad on thinking it was the pad but same problem. Question: Is there a way to reset the board? should I be looking some where else? I cut the power at the breaker box to see if that might reset with no luck.
