Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The waste pipe on my hotpoint dishwasher is connected to a spigot. I now want to buy a Bosch replacement but all models have a waste pipe which is too small in diameter to fit the existing spigot. A smaller spigot does not seem to exist and there is no room to install a stand pipe. Can you suggest a solution? Thanks


Answers :

Do you have a garbage disposal? It is usually easier to drain through the garbage disposal. There is a fitting for this on all disposals. Be sure to remove the knock out plug first.

Hello, I have a Neff Dishwasher S5453X1GB/74 and it's not draining the water out at the end of the cycle. I have unscrewed the filter and released the impeller. I have also cleared the waste pipe that runs to the sink waste and put loads of cleaner in the dishwasher. The pipes seem to be clear as water goes somewhere during the cycle but backs up at the end. A few times when I started a cycle the water did not spray out but I could here the drainer or motor? running. I jetted water through th

Hi there, The error code 'strong and economy light flicker fleetly' is showing. the manual says that this means too much inlet water. We have drained the machine, cleaned waste pipe and tried to operate with a reduced flow from the inlet pipe but it's still not working. I filled the base of the dishwasher with water to see if it drains properly. It seems to be draining, but also leaking out of the base as well..? 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!

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

Drainage I have a bosch slimline[13HIB], I have found stagnant water in it.All I have done so far is bail it out and then try and see if there is a blockage in the waste hose by detatching it from the waste pipe and running water back through it. There was no debris in the filters that sit at the base of the machine.Should I run a quick wash or is there a chance that it will fill with water and I'll flood the kitchen?

I've a Kenmore - Whirlpool dishwasher purchased in 7/2002(665.17574200), which seems clogged. T The ''Accumulator Assembly'' (8268429) filter is clean, and I've stripped the unit down to the plastic components. This has happened once before, and the repair person cleaned some kind of secondary filter, but I can't locate that filter on the parts diagram. I'm guessing it's below the ''Protector inlet'' (8268390). Either I buy a new dishwasher, which seems a waste, or I find out how to clear the
