Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Don't know the Model, however, the On/Off switch is stuck in the On position and the dishwasher won't operate. What to do?

Answers :


This is a common problem with most of the Dishwashers. You will need to replace the on/off switch. The little plastic hinges on the button have broken.

It's\015\012 just a piece of plastic but you will have to separate the door by \015\012removing all the screws around the inside liner and replace the little \015\012plastic button which costs about $30 and doesn't even come with the \015\012switch below---not that you need the switch.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

My Bosch dishwasher Model SHE44C02UC just went completley dead while washing. My wife and I were in the living room and heard a ''pop'' and went to investigate. We discovered the dishwasher was completely dead with no lights on at all. The on/off switch does not work. I checked the breaker and it is okay. Also the disposal is also on this circuit and it still works so I know the circuit is okay. There is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher - no suds - so it may have been in a rinse cycle

Well done on confirming that the outlet is not the problem. This problem will not be able to fixed by the owner and a service call is the next step. (unless you want to dig into the problem, which could easily be a failed pump motor which took out t ... Bosch Dishwashers

Dishwasher - Bosche - SHV43A03GB - When the main power switch is ON, even with the door open the pump/motor continues to run (ie. Stop-cycle does not operate). However, the wash-program itself does not run, even with the door closed (ie. No water entering the dishwasher, even though water supply is on and feed lines are clear - not kinked). It is like the program is 'stuck' and I cannot seem to get it to reset.

Your door switch is likely faulty and should be replaced. You can get them at partselect.com ... Dishwashers

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

I have a Frigidaire ultra quiet energy star dishwasher and the dial gets stuck halfway through the cycle. It runs all day if I'm not home. And when the dishes come out, there's bits of dirt and what looks like gritty sand stuck on all the glasses. I was going to clean the filter out but I don't know how to do that. It's a ten year old model (at least) and I have no paper information about it. Help!

Hello! I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model # 665.15805890. The dishwasher came with the house and I'm guessing it is around 10 years old. My toddler was having a great time flipping the door to the soap dispenser back and forth until he pulled the door off of the pin. Now, I can't seem to position the spring in a way so that the door will spring back. I never looked closely at the hinge before, so I don't know if that is the only reason the door will not release the detergent, or if something

Dishlex Global 310 model. My dishwasher has water sitting on the bottom of it and it wont drain. I noticed it after I did a cycle of dirty dishes and the 'fast' light was flashing when I went to open it. Which shouldnt have been because it was on a normal wash. The water has been sitting at the bottom for 2 days now and still wont drain! I've taken out all the parts on the bottom which come out and cleaned them. Still no change however.

My Bosh dishwasher now runs well past the 105 minutes as stated in the manual, over three hours before I intervene. It gets stuck on the wash mode, it wont drain or rinse, just runs and runs in the wash mode (I know it's in the wash mode because when I open it up, theres suds inside). It will do the wash mode until I reset the wash mode to "Rinse & Hold". I appreciate whatever information you could provide.
