I have a fisher & Pakel dishwasher and it appears to have brown a fuse inside the machine which means it does not work at all and the problem occurred during the wash cycle. This means the seal (which is a top piece that's lifted and lowered by two motors. When the seal is in the lowered position it creates a complete seal but it also locks the drawer (single drawer dishwasher) so it cannot be pulled out. I repaired the dishwasher two years ago. One of the lifter motors didn't work. I replaced t

My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 5 years old. Does this mean I can never leave for two weeks at a time and come home to a working dishwasher?


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommend ... GE Dishwashers

I have a KUDK01IL or KUDL01IL that I purchased in 2003 and it went from quite to a very loud wash. Now the dishwasher is not working. Is the motor gone or is something preventing the motor from "kicking-on?" There is water and heat and pannel lights work. Appreciate your help to let me know if this can be repaired or if I should buy a new machine. Thanks.

Kenmore 587 I have a Kenmore 587.1414 that is only 2 years old. I can hear it filling with water and then after a while it will drain, but does nothing in between. After the cycle has ran completely, I can open it and the dishers have never got wet and the soap door is open but the soap has just ran down the side of the door. What could be wrong? Motor gone out?


I think you are right. That would be the most obvious answer. Some motors are warrantied for 2 years or longer. ... Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Kitchenaid KUDK03CTSS2. It goes about half way through the entire cycle, let's say half hour in and then it sits there buzzing/droning for at least 30-40 minutes, then it finishes fine. Had a service guy in and he would't wait for the symptoms to appear. Everything is good at the beginning. He replaced the pump motor, didn't find any debris in the unit. But it's still doing the same thing.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

Asko 1585 Dishwasher. Lately the washer has not been completing it's cycle without going into the all lights flashing mode.

I have an LG dishwasher lds5811ww -- for about 1.5 years. Purchased it at Best Buy. The soap dispenser is not emptying completely anymore. The upper rack is in its uppermost position. I suspect that the top two spray bars are not turning around because they have not changed positions when I suddenly open the dishwasher while in operation. The spray nozzles do not appear clogged.

I pulled off the bottom panel and the noise appears to becoming from the middle of the machine, an area that is covered by a semiclear plastic case. It has this noise when it is turning the spray wheel inside. Can this be the motor going bad? I installed the dishwasher and marveled at how Quiet it was.

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

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

My dishwasher is leaking from underneath, front left as you look at it. If i go underneath it, there appears to be a seal on the outside (it does not appear to be the one that runs along the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher) that has come away at one point. Do you know a) how to get the front panel off (the bit that makes it look built in),b) how can i get another one of these seals. I assume if i get one we can just fit it into place. Many thanks, Robyn J
