My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

It sounds like you have a food blockage or some blockage between where the water fills up and where it goes into the pump you need to take out the water wand (the rotating thing with water coming out) only the bottom one.

I have frigidaire dishwasher,starts cycle,can hear water entering dishwasher,checked level of water,does not get to 1",machine starts washing by the sound of motor, but dishes are not clean,water drains machine turns of,cycle complete.what do you think.


Depending on your dishwasher, it fills either by a timer or by a water probe or float. I will assume its a timer as a probe or float wouldnt exhibit this behaviour. I would say you have a restriction in your water supply line. Check your valves, an ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

I have a GE GSD3200 dishwasher about 6 years old, which had been working well until this past week. When turned to 'start' the motor runs but no water fills the tub. I then poured 4-5 pots of hot water into the tub and tried to re-start. As soon as it was turned to 'start', I could hear all of the water draining out. How bad does this sound :) ?


Look inside the dishwasher and there is a little round cup shaped thing in the bottom of the washer. It shuts the unit off if the water gets to high. Lightly push down on it to reset. It should fill with water now. You should look into why it was tri ... Dishwashers

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher model #FGBD2431KBO. The problem is when I push the start button it fills with water and then will not start wash cycle.

My Whirlpool Dishwasher ADP931 has stopped working. It stopped in the middle of the cycle with 2 to 3 inches of water on the floor of the compartment. I mopped out the water and tried to restart the dishwasher. The green "on" light now comes on when I press the start button. but nothing happens (no motor comes on,no water enters).Repeating the above action several times does not help the washer to restart even though the other function lights will come on when the knob is turned. saturn1914

Buzzing sound we have a gold quiet lll edition , it is now buzzing when we start it. we have had a repair man here twice each time he has taken it apart and cleaned it. he has said because we have hard water, the water oxidized and some sediment has broke though the seal into the motor and now we need a new motor. does this sound right? we have had dishwashers from whirlpool for years prior. never had to change a motor. please can you offer some suggestions? thanks very much desperate in Mexico.
