Most people immediately call the\012plumber when their dishwasher doesn't work. There are several things\012you can try at home before having to pay an expensive service fee.

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor.

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

End of cycle the display sticks at 1 and the drain pump operates until the machine is switched off or reset.

I have a dishwasher that hasn't been draining properly. For a while I could hit cancel drain cycle again and it would clear 1/2-1 of water out. But now that doesn't always do it. Someone told me to take filter out and see if it needs to be cleaned. Otherwise we have no other sink/plumbing problems with other kitchen areas. Please help! one handyman told me no use to work on dishwashers they are just throwaway with parts/service being so expensive.

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you
