It is 3 years old and 2 months ago I had to have a new motor fitted. 2nights ago I put it on and in the morning it was still going. I have tried again and it just keeps going. The water is slushing round but it is cold. Also the soap dispenser didn't open. It doesn't drain or dry.

My maytag dishwasher MDBH970AWQ Quiet series 300 is more and more often not opening the soap dispenser. Also the number 9 flashes and can't seem to get it to go away.

Hello What does the error code A13 represent. The soap dispenser seems Ok. Could it be related to something else. The machine starts up Ok, but about 6 seconds into a cycle A13 flashes up and the machine stops. Help me...I'M GOING OUT OF MY MIND


As you correctly pointed out A13 error is linked to the failure of the detergent dispenser lid operation.\015\012\015\012If the lid is not opening at the correct time in the wash cycle, then the detergent will not be getting dispensed. ... Indesit 24 in. DE73 Evolution Free-standing Dishwasher

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both. Checked the hose under the sink. We

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

SOAP DISPEN DISHWASHER SOAP DISPEN NOT OPENING I bought a brand new LG dishwasher about 6 months ago. I've had a few problems with it. First, it gives off a smell when it operates. Secondly, more often than not, the soap dispenser does not open. I have read the manual and have tried putting a lot less soap but it still does not work. Should I try switching to liquid soap instead?


Is the machine heating ok?, if so then the dispenser and or the electronic control board is most likely faulty. \015\012if the machine is still in warranty call your lg service agent and when the tech is on site, reque ... Dishwashers

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher (PDW9200N00WW). A red light for the smart dispenseer of soap just appeared in the status area of the control panel (to the left of the reset/start button). I could find nothing in the manual addressing that and I recently refilled the soap dispenser. What does the red light mean and why doesn't the red light go off? I only had enough soap to fill it halfway and will get more to completely fill it. Is that the problem--only half full?

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Kenmore Tumble Action Washer, Model 417,44152400 LEAK! Leaky Door got progressively worse over a month. I replaced the boot and about 10 minutes into the first test wash there was a massive leak under the soap dispenser and down the hinge side of the door during a fill cycle that seemed to be going through the dispenser. This happened again during another fill through the dispenser. No leaks during subsequent fill through the boot hose, before the spin cycle and no leaks around the door
