I have a kenwood dishwasher KDW12ST3A. It is coming up with the code E4 and apears to be working but not emptying. I am assuming it is blocked. It mentions in the instruction manual that I have to ensure that the water outlet valve is open, however it does not discribe how to do this? can you explain how I should do this and best advise me how to unblock it. I have undone the filters and have not found anything, water is slowly coming out the outlet pipe in to a bowl. I broke a glass some months

I am trying to clean my block paving using my pressure washer Karcher 3.99, which I used successfully last summer, however, it is not cleaning well. I have used the high power nozzle but the power seems inefficient to get the dirt out of the paving. Please can you advvise what you think the problem may be. Many thanks. Sue Thompson

I have a Fisher & Paykel fridge (freezer top, fridge lower) probably approx 3 to 4 years old, fridge and freezer works ok, but drips water from top plastic tray below freezer into fridge and into door trays.

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water. If th

Bosch Dishwasher hi, was thinking of buying a second hand bosch aquasensor dishwasher.. I think the model is Bosch SGS46M78AU.. anyhow thw current owner says it needs 'minor electrical repair to circuit board' and when queried further said that sometimes it washed in normal time and at other times it took up to two hours. Any idea what the prob could be, and would it be costly to fix?? Thanks!

I have been negligent in not cleaning out the filters and after the unit more or less stopped, I pulled the two filters finding them full of what looked like soap scum. I cleaned them best I could (but noticed the inner filter still had most of the small holes blocked) Started the unit and it cleaned alright for a couple of days. Last night after running a load all the water did not empty from the bottom of the tub? Any suggestion on what wrong? Bought the unit on 1/19/05. Thanks

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

After the wash has been completed, when I open the door, the bottom of the dishwasher is full of water. It does not spill out, but the only way to empty it is to use a bowl and manually remove it. There is no apparent waste blocking the exit nor any object. Do you know what the problem could be? Many thanks in advance!!! Ms Eribenne

Blanco dishwasher Hi. Saw your answer on the Blanco dishwasher. We have same problem. Dishwasher makes all the pump sounds it used to, but does not start to drain at cycle start, and then no water comes in. read the manual again and think we may have been washing up - ie sinks plugged. Could this have triggered something. You mentioned something about a "micro switch" could you tell me where would this be?. We have a BFDW 650 S. Thanks, Angie
