Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I was chatting with Daniel S. about a Maytag dishwasher that the lock #3 light was on.I took the number pad out and checked for water or wiring problems with the ribbion or pads and there was nothing that I could see wrong. All wires were like new and tight in connector. Any more suggestions?

The water is pumped out after the rinse cycle then it continues to run and make an unusual noise but nothing happens. The noise is almost a grinding sound. There is also a smell like some part may be hot or the wiring may be hot. I can reset the dishwasher and re-run the cycle up until that same point and it does the same thing again. I have had a repairman out twice in the last six months. The first time he could find nothing wrong because the problem was intermittent and he couldn't see anythi

I wired my Bosch Dishwasher wrong and did a quick wash with it. Later on it stopped working and I figured out I had wired it wrong. I then disconnected it and rewired it. It buzzes for a bit then swishes some water around inside then buzzes again. When I open the door after it says clean it has murky water in the bottom like it was mixed with soap but never emptied. What did I do?


I hope this is not a quiz. Can you please clarify what component did you wire incorrectly inside the dishwasher? Did the dishwasher have a fault that you were trying to rectify.\015\012\015\012it will also help if you provide the full mod ... Dishwashers

I have a Maytag MDB7600AWB dish washer. I have a door leak, dripping from the right side. I can not see anything that would allow it. It seems like it could be coming from the inside of the door. Also, there is heat and condensation on at the top of the door, above the leak. It could be that steam is coming from the top right and dripping down the door. Could you give me some idea about fixing the problem.


HI,Check for the following troubleshooting steps:Some leaking around-under-from the door on dishwashers can be traced back to a split in the spray arm. If the lower spray arm develops a split in it, the spray arm can turn too ... Maytag 24 in. MDB7600A Jetclean® II Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How

I recently replaced the chopper in my whirlpool quiet partner III. now it won't drain. I can push the cancel drain button and hear the pump running, but nothing happens. I tried reversing the wires to see if I had switched them around when I was trying to figure out why it wasn't cleaning the dishes and that didn't work either. I checked the hose for cloggs and nothing. I am left scratching my head. model # gu1200xtkt0

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

In replacing the float that senses water level on a Hobart AM 14 dishwasher, I see that the whole assembly is free to rotate after the c-clip is reinstalled. Past experience is that sometimes this plastic float will be found upside-down, on top of the probe which houses the reed switch & thermistor temperature sensor. What's to keep the float from rotating like this? Nothing appears to be broken or missing on the assembly from what I can see. THANKS!!!.......Lee

You may have installed the stainless float retainer backwards. The hook on the retainer that holds the float faces the tank wall and fits into a flat on the probe. This prevents the rotation and will better secure the float. ... Hobart 42 in. AM14C-154 Free-standing Dishwasher

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

1987 In-Sink-Erator Classic Supreme (Just like KitchenAid from that era) - leaked Jet Dry after it was filled. Haven't taken door apart yet to figure out what is wrong. Also, after washing/rinse/dry is complete, dishes have light coating of white powder-like film that wipes off. What could be the cause(s) of these issues?


You have to replace the rinse aid compartment if not the whole inside door shell ,the reason for the coating is because your not using rinse aid.If you are using the same soap than you need to replace the leaking dispensor. ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks


You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the m ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?

No Power? I opened the dishwasher one day to find that it had only run half of the cycle. There was still water at the bottom of it. When I drained it, I attempted to turn it on...nothing. I have turned the breaker off and on, but still nothing. What could be wrong?


I would start at the junction box at thee bottom of the d/w behind the access panel to see if a wire nut may have burnt off. Be sure to turn the breaker off before you check this. Next I would check the door switch. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

Had my Maytag dishwasher for just over 2 years. Lately is has been making a loud grinding/vibrating noise - like something is stuck. I actually pulled out a piece of a plastic twist tie or something and thought I had solved the problem. Worked like a charm for a couple of days and suddenly the sound is back - and worse! I've read here that you should remove the bottom piece and make sure nothing is stuck before calling service. I'm the woman that's going to do this and could use some guidance ..
