Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Answers :

Check that the pump is clean and not loose. Make sure pump, impeller, and waste pipe are in alignment with each other and are clean. If it works when you shake the pipe, then there is still a clog inside or the pipes aren't aligned correctly and something is hanging up.

F1 error code. Clean water pouring out the back at the bottom where the pipes (clean and waste) exit. Could the pipe be loose inside the machine? How easy is it to get the back off to have a loo?

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through. Do you think it is a filter that is blocked? If this is the case are they easy to attach to the bottom or the machine or would I have to get

I am not getting any water out of the bottom spray arm in my bosch SGS47E02GB35 dishwasher. I have cleaned out the plastic pipe assembly on the left hand side of the machine and the plastic tubes that sit to the right of the pipes. I have blown through many of the other pipes to and dislodged quite a lot of debris which has now been cleared out of the machine. The machine completes its cycle and water comes out of the upper spray arm (there may not be as much water coming out as there should be)

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster. I don't have a manual so

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

My Bosch Classixx (about 10 years old) dishwasher won't fill The problem has only started since I pulled it out and cleaned! The programme sounds are as normal but no water enters the machine.

Hi, I get a problem reading " E4". I have now switched the machine off and on again, but still it says the same.

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.

Cleaning My dishwasher always leaves behind these brown small peices of crime. I use about 1 tsp of dry poweder (the repair told me to last year) and that helped with all the streaks on the dishes. I clean the traps often, clean off my dishes to the point as I might as well just do them by hand, and still I get these food particles or whatever it is. We have a good working water softner.

How to diagnose? My Kenmore won't run. First it was flashing the clean light 7 times, so I figured out how to reset ("High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"/"High Temp Scrub"/"Air Dry"), but when I try to run a wash, it sounds like it's not getting water into the tub. When I checked it several minutes later, it was in "Cancel" mode, making a sound like it was draining (or trying to drain), then the clean light started flashing 7 times again. Clearly, the machine has something wrong but I don't know where to

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?
