Answers :

I don't know what a quiet clean 1 is, but I had a dishwasher that would not drain. It turned out that a popsicle stick or something had gotten lodged between the plastic piece covering the drain and the drain itself. You might want to check to see if anything is clogging the drain in the center of the bottom of your dishwasher.

Hi I have a mdb6601awb maytag dishwasher. Sometimes when it starts the wash cycle it will make a loud squelling noise. Then if you pull on the handle and stop it, the machine will start and sometimes the noise will be gone. Or you may have to do this 3 or 4 times before it will stop making the squelling noise. I do notice when I pull up on the handle to stop the machine it makes some clicking noises and then the noise goes away. Thank You for any help you may be able to give me!!!

The key lock light stays on. I held the heated dry button for 4 seconds and the light still stays on. I think it may be the control board, but I am not sure. Can anyone help me please?


If the light is blinking, it is definately a stuck button and the console will need to be replaced. If it is on steady, it could be a console or control board problem. There are no troubleshooting tips to figure out which one is faulty, the manual sa ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

I have a Twenty-Eight Hundred dishwasher that is giving me a constant Blocked Wash Arm error. I've reached in and freed it, made sure it was as free as possible - have only stopped short of physically crawling into the dishwasher to fix it. I can't get it to work, despite nothing really blocking. Can someone help me out?

We cannot keep temperature of our Jackson Tempstar dishwasher at a constant temp. One time the rinse will be down a bit and then the wash. We have replaced the gauges, thermostats, motor and element of the diswasher. It is kept constantly clean, and we have tried everything we can think of. Would there be a wire that could be coming loose every once in awhile that may cause this? Thank you for any help you can give us.

My 13 year old Frigidair dishwasher (model FDB221RFR2) is not disolving the soap tab that drops in during the later cycles. We sometimes find the soap sitting on dishes or on the bottom. It appears that there may not be enough water but I'm sure of how much there actually should be. It also appears that the soap may be dropping late but again I'm not sure of when it should normally drop. I checked the inlet value and it appears to be ok. I also checked the timer (to the best of my ability) and i

My GE dishwasher's door is stuck shut ~ I'm assuming a broken latch. I was told to fix the latch, the dishwasher has to be taken out from under the counter top (in order to get the door open). My problem is: with the dishwasher door stuck shut, it's impossible to unscrew the dishwasher from the countertop... Any helpful hints? Pleeeeeeeease (all of my silverware is stuck INSIDE the locked dishwasher - LOL!)

The problem with our Hobart LT1 dishwasher is the drain dump valve. The solinoid works fine. The rod that pushes up the plunger gets stuck. If we grease the rod it works for a few loads then when the grease wears off it hangs up again. The rod will hang up whether the plunger is in place or not. Our only remidy so far has been the grease.

THe door suddenly won't shut all the way. I made sure there was nothing physically in the way--duh--then realize it has to do with the door itself.

Our bosch dishwasher runs but no water is spraying on the inside. Is there a water filter clean out or is there a water pump that might be broken? I checked the line coming in and it isn't plugged. I made sure where the stainless line goes into the electric valve that it wasn't plugged to that point. I could see anywhere else to check if it was plugged. I figure there has to be a water pump, but I guess I'm not sure of that either. Thanks for any help..
