Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The drum stopped spinning, but could still hera motor running. The door was locked; could not unlock to open. After several attempts of unplugging/replugging door could be open.


Answers :

Is this a dishwasher or a washing machine that you have a problem with.

\015\012The drum is usually in a washing machine. The motor you hear running is the drain motor. So this is a normal operation of front loading washing machines. When the drum stops spinning, the drain pump takes away the remaining water and then a timer lock comes into play to make sure the clothes are settled dowm before you can open the door.

I have a Maytag MDB4650AWW. It appears to have water flowing to it and good pressure but for some reason the jet arms are not spinning and therefore the dishes are not as clean as they should be.

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher, several years old. The lock light went on yesterday and we could not put it on wash or anything. We hit cancel, unplugged the machine, left the door open so it would stop the cycle...nothing worked. How do you get the lock off when it goes on like that? I just went into the kitchen, shut the door and the lock was off, strange.

The release clasp on the front of the dishwasher seems to be broken. It does not click correctly when I attempt to open the door and seems "free". For a few times, it seemed like it was hard to open but no one used a lot of force, we just tried several times and then it would open. Can this be a part I can replace myself or do I need to call a repairman?

Bosch logixx dishwasher sounds like its running continuously & will go through entire program but does not fill or wash. Filled it with hot water manually to try for air locks & it does drain out.

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

Will not open if I just close the door and remains empty. I'm wondering if perhaps I knocked off some random part that makes it open. So please tell me how darn thing opens and perhaps a pic of the parts so I could see if ones missing. Thank you for any help offered for this, its driving me nuts.
