Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I had a 125 Cutler Breaker box put in a few years ago but I never realized that they never mark which braker was for what.I want to install a dishwasher but can not identify the breaker. Do I need to call in an electrian?


Answers :

Generally you get someone to stand and watch the lights in a room while you go through and turn each breaker on and off until you find the one you're looking for. Nothing at all wrong with going through and marking them too.

It's also good to cycle breakers once a year. Flip them on and off a couple of times, if cleans the contacts and it's good for them.

I just bought an Indesit D3000WZ dishwasher, second hand, and it does not have a user guide or installation manual and I can't find one online. I just want to know how to properly install and operate my dishwasher (i.e. what settings to use, etc.) I have never owned a dishwasher, so this is all new to me.

I want to buy the machine, listed below, but I don't want to pay $130 for installation Bosch Dishwasher SMS50E12AUW. Do I need an expert or can I do it myself. I have installed my own dishwashers before, but they may be a little more complicated than an inflow outflow pipe now :)


Dishwashers are no more complicated to install than before. It's still just 1 water pipe connected and the drain hose connected to the drain and plug it in. Bish bosh bash. Hope this helps. ... Bosch Dishwashers

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem


Not sure what you mean by a "del" level, but as far a drying issues:\015\012\015\012LG chose to use a very energy efficient drying method which relies on the residual heat of the dishes to help dry them rather than many manufacturer ... LG LDF6810 Built-in Dishwasher

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong. The dishwasher is brand new out of box but we bought it 4 years ago and remodeling was delayed. Model #SHU5314UC/U06 FD#8001


Test the door switch. It can be faulty or misaligned. You can also check the back of the unit and/or remove the rear panel and take a look at the thermal fuse. It may be bad not allowing enough current flow to operate the machine. ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

LG Dishwasher I just purchase a new LG Dishwasher. The installer told me that the dishwasher can not be flush to the Kitchen cabinets because of the metal cases around the dishwasher and also it can not be aligned with the top and bottom of the cabinets because the door is too thick to give it clearance to open. I have had two other dishwashers in this spot and never had any issue. Thoughts? Thanks, Jen


I can't say for sure, but it is possible this unit is deeper than previous units. The only way to tell for sure is to measure the previous unit and compare to this one.I would be suspect there may be something simple preventing the dishwa ... LG LDF6810ST Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I set my dishwasher to wash last night (delay 2 hrs.) and I checked it this morning and it never washed. Yesterday, I had to turn off the dishwasher at the breaker box because it wouldn't reset. Now, the normal wash and heated dry lights are on, but it won't start. Also, it usually beeps when I close the dishwasher door, and now it won't even do that. We bought the dishwasher about a week ago. It a GE Profile dishwasher. Thanks, Chris

TV static I just installed a new dishwasher. When it is running, it causes static lines on the TV. Prior to the new dish washer, I did not have this problem. It is wired correctley, and not on the same circuit. As I stated I did not have this problem until the new dishwasher. I called the service people for the dishwasher, and they stated they could not help me. Have you got any ideas, or do they make some type of filter I can put on the line to the TV.

Our Miele Incognito dishwasher was installed in our new home in August, 2005. The wash/dry cycle has always taken a very long time - 5-6 hours is now the standard. So we have gotten accustomed to only running the dishwasher at over night. However, for the last few months, we've noticed the dishwasher is no longer drying well - we also need to finish drying the plates, glasses and silverware. Do you recommend we have a service call?


Yes, absolutely. The timer motor is not functioning right for it to stay on like that. Could be other control issues too. ... Miele 24 in. Incognito G843SCVi Built-In Dishwasher
