Have a frigidaire dishwasher (model- PLD4375RFC0)about 2 years old. Set to run as we left to go out of town- when we came back all lights flashing including error- found a child's plastic bowl that had fallen to the bottom and had a melted spot as it was next to the heating element. Called support and were told to master restart- shut the power off for 15 minutes. Did and now flashing "27". Cannot find a code for that and neither could support without sending out a repairman. Any advice before

My dishwasher is leaking huge amounts of foam to the floor. This is what happened before I ran the cycle: I had mistakenly poured detergent into the "Rinse Aid" slot in the inner side of the dishwasher door. After one or two cycles, I realized the mistake, and tried to rinse out the remaining detergent from the "Rinse Aid" compartment by running the cycle without screwing on the cap of the Rinse Aid slot. I found out it was a mistake as huge amounts of foam is being released during the rinse cyc


OK.... The rinse aid dispenser holds enough rinse aid for a lot of washes and dispenses very little each time. So you may nedd to have the dispenser emptied by a technician. If you take the door liner off you can see the back of the dispenser and may ... Dishwashers

We have a KitchenAid dishwasher (KUDI01FLSS6) which has not been working properly for a long time. We have the dreaded green blinking light mystery. We understand that this could indicate several different problems. We have found that if we run the sink water until it is hot, then start the dishwasher, and then after ten minutes we open then shut the door, it will consistently run the full cycle perfectly. Does this give you any hint of what might be the problem component -sensor, element, the

Hello, we have a Frigidaire dishwasher Model# FDB1250REC2. There was all kinds of junk down in the lower filter area and when I tried to remove the parts they all came out together and then fell apart. I need to see how the parts go back together, because I thought I had them in there correctly, but when I opened up the dishwasher after running it the water sprayer was laying on the heating element. Could you please help me get it back together right? Thank you

Hello I have a Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher model #MDBH955AWW that is making a lot of noise. I saw an exchange on this site where the expert suggested filling the washer to just above the heating element, running it, and seeing if that solved the problem. I tried that and it solved the problem. I believe the expert said this indicates the fill valve needs to be replaced. Can you tell me which valve I need and advise me on how to change the valve?

I was replacing my sink faucet today and in the process turned the water off to the dishwasher. Subsequently my girlfriend ran the dishwasher without the water on! Now when I go to run the dishwasher no water comes out (meanwhile I've turned the water to the dishwasher back on). Is there some kind of reset? I accidently touched the coil in the bottom of the dishwasher just after trying to run it and it was hot. What do you recommend? Thanks. Mark

I own a Bosch dishwasher. It is about 5 years old. In the last year I have noticed that is isn't cleaning well and that there is a white residue on all the dishes and especially on the inside of the dishwasher. I poured a whole gallon of white vinegar into the dishwasher about a month ago and let it run the whole cycle without dishes. Since then the white residue has deminished, but now the dishes are not clean when I run the dishwasher. I notice the white residue mostly on the silverware w

My G865 Miele dishwasher goes partway through the cycle then gets hung up and runs without advancing. We left it running when we left for vacation and it was still running when we came back. I'm assuming it is the timer mechanism. The dishwasher is ten years old but has been run only every other day or so. Is it worth fixing or is it better to replace?

The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested).

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers
