Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.\015\012\015\012Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed. Probably that left hinge isn't holding door close enough which was probably the original cause. As se ... KitchenAid Architect? II S SERIES KUDS03FT Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

E6 I have been getting E6 error message over and over again. I have had the machine to pieces, cleaned out the pump and hoses, and still the same problem. Occasionally, the error message changes to E8 or E1, but no matter what, I can't get it to work. Any ideas? When I start the machine, select any program and close the door after a short while the machine does not complete the wash cycle and I get the following message either: E1 or E2 will appear in the control panel Any suggestions Dave M

Hi _ We have a Stoves DW616 dishwasher which has started leaking water on filling from around the front door. The BGas engineer replaced the seals around the door with those from a Hygena which he said were the same and it worked fine for a few days and then a further deluge. He has now said there is a seal at the base of the door (just about invisible) and although he got a further Hygena seal this would not fit and he says that as it's obsolete the machine should be written off.

Recently replaced the control board for Electrolux EIDW6105GW1; after nearly a month of working w/o any problems this evening the machine made it through the wash cycle and then stopped working (all lights on wash cycle door menu are flashing). Took kick plate off bottom to check control board and the leak dectector is lit. I can see no leaks in front and am reluctant to do anything else with this POS. I spent nearly $1000 on this 18 months ago and have already sunk over $300 into a new contr

Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher. This worked fine until the door catch broke. I replaced the catch but could not remember which way round the two electrical leads went (red and black). I tried both ways with the same result. The lights come on the control panel and I can change the programme, but on closing the door the house fuses blow. I have checked the earth cable is fine. Any ideas?

Miele 646 sc plus inlet tank solonoid valve on water tank leaking. We moved the machine from one room to another and now this valve is squirting out water. We replaced both door seals thinking that was the problem, then started the machine with a side pannel removed, and saw the jet of water coming from the solonoid valve on the water inlet tank. Any ideas.

Hi - My Electrolux ESL63010 dishwasher seems to be stuck mid programme. It was part way through a programme when we had a pipe burst. Pipe all sorted now but the dishwasher just makes a noise like it is asking for water but nothing happens. When you open the door, it makes three short beeps and the light flashes on the programme menu. Any ideas how to solve? It definitely is not the pipes as the washing machine feeds from the same pipe and is working fine. Help!

Hi, we have a Hoover HEDS668-80 dishwasher at work. The first problem we had was none of the programs would run this turned out to be a broken door lock. After replacement we managed to get one pre wash and one wash program to run, now when we try it, it starts but after 2 minutes the pre-wash and wash lights flash and the machine beeps 8 times. Can anyone help?

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model SHU9915UC/U11. The spring mechanism on the detergent door cracked, and I bought the part to replace it. I took the front cover off of the dishwasher to determine how to replace it. Two white plastic "things", maybe spacers, fell out. I need 2 things: a) how to gain access to the spring on the detergent door so that I can replace it, and b) how to put the door spacers back on. An exploded parts view would probably help a great deal. Michael J. Orr

The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate. My machine does not work until you push hard against the closed door. What is the problem please?

My Baumatic BWD 1631 will not start unless I close the door, hold down the programme button, press the on/off button, release the programme button, at which point all 5 programme indicators light up. If I then press the programme button again, the lights then all intermittantly cycle. However during this period, the bleeper sounds, the water inlet valve works, the circulating pump works and finally the discharge pump works and the machine empties. However I am unable to stop or start the machine

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.
