I have a Fisher & Paykel 913T soft touch dishwasher. On all types of washes when the wash cycle starts there is no 230 volts on the element & after 5 minutes the wash cycle finishes & then goes onto to the next cycle. None of the wash or rinse cycles heat the water but on the dry cycle their is 230 volts onto the element & dries the dishes OK. Is my problem the power supply PCB or could it be the Controller PCB? Does the 230 volts to the element on dry cycle come from the same cicuit on the po

DWI612C wash cycle runs on and on and on. Believing to be a problem with water heating I tried putting a couple large pan fulls of boiling water into machine during wash cycle and this did move it on from wash to rinse. How do I replace the heating element I cant see it it is not in the dish washing compartment? I dont want to call out a repair agent as one can probably buy a new machine for what that will cost. Thank you.

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

Our SB915WJ doesn't heat water though the heating element is ok, I checked with my multimeter. Is there a mains relay or something i need to change in the circuitry to fix this problem? Does anyone out there have a service manual you can email me? Also the fan drier isn't working, also the relay that is supposed to flip open the soap dispenser doesn't work. The unit is only eighteen months old. I'm not impressed with it's working life.

We have a KitchenAid KEBC147KSDS06 24" conv. oven. After putting it through a clean cycle, I tried to preheat it to conv, bake @ 350 deg. The display comes up normally and the fan runs, but after 5 sec. the temp disappears from the display and 'Lo' appears in its place. The conv. fan continues to run but neither upper nor lower element heats. Following a suggestion, I tried to reset the oven by turning off its circuit breaker and powering back up, but it did not correct the problem.


It depends how long you had the self-clean function running. The oven is known to overheat and damage the thermostat during self-clean.\015\012\015\012See postings on some user forums.\015\012\015\012 ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS02SRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Hi, my Ge profile dishwasher model pdw9280n00ss changes wash modes on it's own. This is a new problem, it was stuck on normal wash for the last year. It screwed up right after the warranty ran out. The start button and the heat all seem to work. I've seen it jump between the wash cycles on it's own while washing . Is it worth fixing, I feel ripped off on this expensive dishwasher!! Thx
