Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The brackets to hold the dishwasher back under the counter do not align with the holes that were drilled in the granite counter top for the old dishwasher. I do not want to try to drill new holes in the granite. Is there an alternative to fasten the dishwasher under the countertop so that it will not rock out. The model DU1055XTVS3.


Answers :

You could have a handy person make some new brackets which attach to the new dishwasher's brackets with bolts but are made so that they line up with the existing worktop holes. You can probably use strips of soft metal with holes to fashion these.The dishwasher may have to sit slightly lower.

New kenmore dishwasher and it is sitting too low there is a quarter inch at hole at the top of the dishwasher under the counter. It seems to be tight in the space; can we cut off the metal bracket that screws in under the counter. That way we can raise the dishwaster the quater inch. I think it is tight enough not to move around without the top screws. What is your opinion?

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom.

Whirlpool DU920PWKB0 Dishwasher We may be in need of a lower dishrack assembly. I noted that this part does not come with the pressure cone. How can one remove the pressure cone from the old rack to insert in the new? I don't want to break it. (Even if I ordered a new rack and a new cone, I'd still have to insert it -- a round part in a square hole.)

Screw drop Hi I was installing my new LG dishwasher and I droped a screw in the hole in the side panel where you can put a screw to connect to the side of your cabinet. There is a small plastic cover which I removed where you can screw a screw into the cabinet. However the head of my screw was too small and fell in the side panel. I can not get the screw out or see it now although I know it is in the dishwasher. Is there anyway of getting it out or will this cause a problem? Since it is in t

Frigidaire 2405 Dishwasher has a direct drain into the floor and is too far from the sink to be able to drain into the sink pipes. Can I add a loop of drain hose from the floor drain up to the counter height, about 30", then back to the floor to mimic the loop that would be created by running to the sink drain? I have been told that these new types of dishwashers require water remaining in the pipes to work properly. Thanks, John

Maytag dishwasher model MDB7609AWW2 has a blinking clean light. I followed the advice on fixya (thankya!) and by alternating the normal and heated wash buttons I was able to return the lights to normal. However, once I tried to run a normal cycle, it didn't do anything other than fill and drain. I then ran the hot water faucet in the sink until hot and tried another new cycle, but no luck. Any advice is MUCH appreciated!

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open.
