Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a Blanco Dishwasher Model BFDWC65X. It appears that the thermostat may be faulty as the water gets extremely hot on cycle 3 which is supposed to operate at 45 degrees centigrade.

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

Dishwasher problem Our Asko 1353 dishwasher stops halfway through its's wash cycle. I suspected the thermostat, as it seemed loose in it's holder and not tight against the tub. After I tightened the holder the problem is still the same. Also, the on/off switch (pressure switch?) does not stay in the on position and when I looked it over I found one of the crimp on terminals had melted. Short circuit? Too much resistance from bad thermostat? How do I check the thermostat before I order a new one?


I think your switch may just be bad,but to check the t-stat remove both wires and use a multimeter,set the meter to ohms and connect the two leads to the terminals on the t-stat.with the t-stat to off you should read an (ol) open condition,when you t ... Dishwashers

I have a Smeg dishwasher SA660 EB. Still like new . Hardley used but have problems with the timer switch not progressing past 5 and also had the thermostat replaced as a loud bang heard and the machine did not work. Since warranty on repair run out it sounds like water is leaking around the thermostat through onto electrics as loud bang noise heard again . I found the thermostat just pushes up into the rubber seal in the bottom of the dishwasher. I have taken out the rubber seal as this also loo

Smeg Dishwasher DWD 63.1 SS, not heating; I have Smeg dishwasher that is sticking in its cycle (wash phase), water was cold, so I assumed the element had failed (or tank termostat), so I have replaced both element and tank thermostat in turn.

BF41 Dishwasher with a leak stuck in mid cycle Hi, I have a 'general domestic Appliance Ltd' BF41 (95+G709394) dishwasher which recently started leaking at the door.

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

I have a Bosch dishwasher that is about 4-6 years old (model SHU8805UC/U12). A few days ago I found clear water in the tub hours after the wash cycle had completed. I drained the tub by resetting the cycle as instructed in the user manual, but the tub gradually filled up with water again after several hours.. will replacing the inlet valve solve this issue?according to what I can tell for my model the water valve assembly (part No. AP3783031) is the part I need. How difficult and expensive

I had a problem with my dishwasher popping the breaker. I opened the bottom and found burnt up wires. I fixed those and now the dishwasher stays on and begins its cycle (by draining) but the water is not flowing to the machine. It has supply, and I just now replaced the water inlet valve- no difference. The water was working before the breaker issue. I'm wondering if it is now something as simple as a clog somewhere since the washer sat unused for a month; or, if it is something more compli

Neff Dishwasher Hi; I have a Neff slimline Dishwasher that won't fill with water but works ok if I fill with a bucket. I have searched the net and found that it probably has either a stuck float or a faulty inlet valve. The probelm is I can't find these things. Should I pull it out and turn it upside down or what? And if I do need to replace one of these where can I get them from? I have tried a search online but can't find them.

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHE58C did not completely drain.
