Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Maytag Dishwasher circa 2002 - Defective Plastic rollers The plastic rollers that slide the arms of the dish rack keep breaking. I have had this dishwasher for 6yrs now and go through 1 a year.

Secondly, the inconvenience of having a delapitated dish rack that crashes sideways - with the weight on only one side. Presently, I'm about to order my 6th one. I'd like to know if you are aware of this d

The dishwasher is not cleaning. It has left a residue all over the dishes especially colored plastic ware glasses. like it doesn't rinse but i have ran the extra rinse cycle and residue is still there. It has actually stained the dishes. Then ceramic dishes are not clean. And ones on the top rack feel like there is a coating on them that does not come off unless you rinse by hand.

Pump problems I had a fairly light load of dishes that needed to run so I thought I'll put some plastic fruit on the top rack to also get clean. Well, when the load was done and I opened the door everything was covered and I mean everything with a whitish substance aka wax! One of the fruit was made of wax an melted all over the entire interior of the dishwasher. We had 30 people now arriving for dinner so I just left it all alone. I should have run it again immediately but I didn't. Now after r

Our Hotpoint Dishwasher Model HDA200X-73BA has two little white plastic pipe stubs poking out of the bottom of the dishwasher. During one of the cycles--(I don't think it is the drain cycle)-- some water is being released from one of these pipe stubs and then it stops and the other one runs some water. They each only run for a few seconds, but the water is just running on the floor. These little pipe stubs are about one half inch in diameter and project out of the bottom of the dishwasher about

Are the top rack adjusters on the Whirlpool GU2400XTP dishwasher an owner-serviceable item? Do most Whirlpool parts stores sell the top rack adjusters for the Adjustable 2-position top rack? My dishwasher is five years old and one of the adjusters has broken. The two-position rack seems like a good idea but the plastic part doesn't look like it was built for high-temperature durability.

Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher - GU2700XTSB The top rack of the dishwasher is not cleaning. The bottom rack dishes clean fine. There are no clogs in either the bottom or top spinner arms, the plastic tube feeding water from the bottom pump to the top rack spinner arm is clean, the spinner arms all rotate freely and do not bind. Water pressure is correct and water temperature is correct. There are no lime or hardwater deposits or clogs. What could be the issue?

Hobart Dishwasher We have an old smaller built-in dishwasher at our church (Hobart model WM5H). It doesn't stop spraying water if you open the door to remove a rack of dishes to put the next rack in like it is supposed to. One member thought it may be the Electrical Timer Switch? Would this be a fairly easy repair?


I guess I didn't understand your statement of the problem. If you know that the washer has gone through an entire cycle, and it is time to take out the RINSED dishes, yet the washer turns on when you do this, play with the door interlock and the doo ... Hobart Dishwashers

My Brada portable dishwasher does not clean the dishes very well. Also the racks are very hard to pull out and put back in, very frustrating. When pulling the racks the whole dishwasher moves. I am not very happy with this product. Would never by another one.

Most dishwashers have a little filter basket in the bottom. Depending on the brand, you can slide out the bottom rack, and in the bottom underneath the sprayer (the propeller thing) there should be some sort of basket that can be removed and cleaned. ...

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

The flimsy plastic guide wheels on the rack for my (ca. 2000) GE monogram dishwasher have been breaking. Six so far. GE wants $25 - $30 per wheel to replace and $235 for a whole new rack!! I will not reward this rapacious corporate behavior. Is there an appliance graveyard (like an auto wreck yard) where one can get a used rack? Are there wheel manufacturers/suppliers that will sell reasonably wheels of similar dimensions to the breaking wheels? Preferably in nylon or stainless steel, not the cr

We have a built in GE dishwasher. It has worked fine for about 4 years but now the glasses in the top rack will not come clean. I have cleaned all the holes where the water comes out but I think the sprayer that is beneath the top rack (the one that is attached to the bottom of the top rack) is not rotating. We had someone out to take a look at it and they said it was fine. It isn't fine as it is not cleaning the dishes. Is there a reason that the bottom sprayer is not turning?

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help.

I am having two problems with my dishwasher. The first one is that it leaks from the right front side.

I have hard water and I am using less detergent.
