My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

The problem started with it not draining correctly and leaving water in the bottom - my husband took it apart and found a bolt in the drain. He removed it and now it won't start.

My Bosch dishwasher has had a problem since we had it installed. It smells like garbage after sitting for a few hours. This problem is there whether it has been run or not. Water is always standing in the large drain tube under the "filter" and it doesn't look clean. I contacted Bosch by phone as soon as this was discovered - in a matter of days after purchase - and was told by a rather haughty service person to leave the dishwasher door open. Not a practical suggestion even if it didn't sm

Drainage Problems My ASKO D3120 doesn't drain properly leaving water in the bottom. I have had this problem before (2 yrs ago) and called the helpline who told me how to reset the machine by pressing the buttons in a particular order which fixed it immediately. Now when I call them they claim this can't be done and they will have to send a technician. Sounds like a money making exercise to me. Does anyone know how to reset through the programming function?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, stainless steel front- with buttons on the inside top( same as display, and the washing cycle won't start. Water seems to be running into the washer, as I can hear it, but the cycle never starts. Recently, I had clogged garbage disposer issue that has been resolved. The dish washer drains into the disposer, and I had free standing water left behind in the washer for 2days during this time.. Could this be the issue? Can you help me figure out this problem? Thanks!!

My old Neff dishwasher S4132 is constantly taking in water even when switched off! I can drain it ( every hour!) by putting it to drain cycle but have to turn off the mains supply when leaving it even for a short time. Awaiting a plumber as the tap to isolate the supply has broken but am interested to know if a new aqua stop will solve this problem or could it be something else??

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. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

Same problem Hi, I have the same problem there is water in the filter basket of the dishdrawer, I have watched the draining process when itgoes to error F1 and there seems to be a cycle of draining then pushing the water back through again.

I am thinking the blockage maybe in the contained section of the pump as the previous man has explained. T

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so

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
