Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The dishwasher does not work at all and there is water in the bottom. I tried to see if there was a blockage but couldn't find anything.


Answers :

Dishwasher will not drain
Usually when this occurs on an older model the motor has stuck. It requires shutting
off power at the circuit breaker that feeds the dishwasher. Then manually rotating
the motor shaft either by moving the fan blade located in the metal housing inside the
slot near the plastic pump (at the back of the motor itself for round motors).
or move the aluminum fins which are easily seen on the front of square pumps.
This applies only to
single pump units like Hotpoint, Kenmore, or GE. for others, such as Frigidaire or
Haier, often the drain pump has failed. Remember to give a little silicone spray on
the bearing ends and to make sure the disposal is working on the sink if you have one
since most dishwashers drain through them.

I have a Rebadged Siemens dishwasher model no. SE6TIE1GB / 13 TKD 795 / 2. When turning on, the dishwasher makes the "normal" noise of washing but after less than a minute it stops and refuses to wash anything. Ive tried pressing the reset button but no help. Worth mentioning, the night prior to that, I switched on the dishwasher before sleeping and when waking up at 5am, it was still washing so I manually turned it off and opened the door to find some water at the bottom of the tray.

Dishwasher won't drain.

Hey Everyone! Ok try this one! I have been working on a KUDS25 Kitchenaid Dishwasher. It was leaking like a siv from the bottom. I replaced both top and bottom plastic bearings and also tightend all the screws at the bottom. Leak Gone, I thought. It now has small leaks down both sides. I have since been told by the owner that he took the door apart himself. I pulled out the dishwasher from the cabinet and ran it. I could see the leaks at the top on both sides of the door latch.

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc
