Hi
\015\012
\015\012I saw your post today and see your fault was dated back in July 2008.\015\012Well its a year late and I had the same problem coming up on my machine\015\012SMEG DWI 614, error E8 to be exact. After 6 hours of trying to resolve\015\012this cleaning PCB, etc. (one can see its the recession and money is\015\012scarce) I finally pulled out the diverter valve, dismantled it and left\015\012it in some boiling water with limescale remover. I made sure the\015\012plastic teeth in the mechanism could spin properly and inserted back\015\012into the machine....
\015\012
\015\012And finally the machine works once again. It was 6 hours of my time but probably saved me +/- £150.

My SB908WL Westinghouse dishwasher is tripping the switch when it goes to pump out the water. What are the likely problems and solutions please! If anyone has some expertise that would be great. (I have recently checked the soldering on the main panel and touched one point up, the rest are fine it seems). The element is working as there is hot water in the unit. We have small kids so maybe something is jammed in there? How do I get access to check. All input helpful. Thanks!

I have a MDB4630AWS1 series dishwasher that is only a couple of weeks old. Suddenly, it now starts the wash cycle but then the Cancel/Drain light turns red, and it drains and stops the cycle. Check for items blocking the sprayers and looked for anything clogging the interior. It does this with all the settings. Seems to work for a few minutes, but then it just drains and stops. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!
