My 2-year-old LG Dishwasher doesn't clean the dishes well any more. It used to work great, I was very happy with it. For some unknown reason it doesn't work that way any more. The dishes come out dirtier then they were before I put them in. I had three guys come in and look at it and they all said that there is nothing wrong with my dishwasher. My water heater is 1 year old, works great everywhere else in the house, the dishwasher is hooked up the right way, by a professional, I don't have hard

I have this dishwasher and it won't drain - I LOVE this dishwasher. It cleans better than any I've ever had. I can't remember how old it is so don't know if its worth fixing. Nobody seems to like their new dishwashers so I'd almost rather fix my old one that has never let me down...but its black...and all my other appliances are stainless....

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v


Be ready for both . because if they break you can still replace it. but (a) is to me the better choice. let me know how you made out and send me a 4 thumbs post if it works out ... Dishwashers

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom. Tried to re

I own a kitchenaid dishwasher that is only a few months old and I have this horrible smell on my dishes. I have noticed this also on our old dishwasher. What can it be? I have tried putting bleach and running a cycle but that does not seem to help. Can you tell me what it is? Should I change dishwasher soap or is it maybe my water.


I suspect your water supply is at fault. Sulfur and iron in the water will cause terrible smells. You may try using an additive like Lemi Shine with your detergent, but it will likely not help much. I would recommend having your water tested.... ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

My dishwasher is 12 years old. We have hard water but we use a water softener. I have to rinse the dishes completely clean before I wash them. Is my dishwasher just getting old?

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

My dishwasher will not start. If you unplug it and plug it back in it says 1H, no matter what button you press it then says 2H and if you press another button it will say 3H until it runs through to 9H then will display --. It will continue to do this until you leave it alone and walk away. Then after a few moments it will clear itself out and the 'Normal' light under cycles will continue to blink. The dishwasher is 3 maybe 4 years old. Please help, I have a 3 year old and an 18 month o

I have a Viking dishwasher made by Asko. It is less than 6 months old. Today I had a problem with my disposal (water not draining through it and leaking under the sink) and ran the dishwasher, which cleaned/dried the dishes fine. BUT, since the water was not properly draining from the disposal, apparently the dishwasher was not draining properly either. A repairman came to fix the disposal before I knew about the dishwasher issue. Now, the dishwasher won't turn off "draining mode" - button pu

I have a 7 yr old GE Tritron XL dishwasher that I rarely use. Last time I used it was almost 2 months ago. A week ago I noticed a horrible rotting stench coming from the inside. I poured 1 cup of vinegar in the base and let it sit overnight. Next morning I ran the dishwasher with detergent but no dishes. Odor still there. Checked bottom of dishwasher for food - nothing there (I prewash dishes before putting them into dishwasher). Added 2 cups of vinegar, ran dishwasher on hottest setting. Sti

I have Frigidaire model FDB130RGS3. This seems like a pretty cheap dishwasher that is provided by my management company. This is third dishwasher I've had in this apartment. The others have all broken. Now this one, which is less than 6 months old, seems to have broken. It does not clean the dishes. I removed the round plastic cover in the base of the dishwasher and the bottom of the dishwasher (sorry don't know how else to describe this) is filled with dirty water. I drained the water and tried

When dishwasher drains the water not all the water is drained. Some stays standing at the bottom and starts getting an odor after awhile. This is a replacement dishwasher in a 35 year old house. How important is the air release part in the draining situation? I was told by someone that the newer dishwashers have the air release part which was not hooked up on this dishwasher when installed last year. Are there some other possibilities of things that can be checked. Model Number is DU

Hello I have a Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that is leaving food residue on my dishes. The dishwasher is 2.5 years old and all of a sudden this problem is happening. I have not changed dishwasher soap.

I have a 7 year old Kenmore 24" (mod. 16532201) built-in dishwasher. For the past several months now I have noticed a dark almost greasy film covering the inside of the dishwasher after doing a load of dishes. It can also be found around the soap dispenser door, basically everywhere. I'm wondering if the black rubber around the inside front of the dishwasher is deteriorating. It doesn't appear to be damaged or cracked. I have tried "Finish" dishwashing cleaner several times, but to no avail

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

My 1 yr old GE dishwasher model # GLD4900P00WW lost power during the drying cycle & blew the rest of the circuit. An electrician has fixed the rest of the circuit & rewired the dishwasher to it's own switch in the breaker box. The dishwasher still has no power. Is there a fuse somewhere in the dishwasher that could've blown? If so, how do I locate it?
