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


I've just (as of 10 minutes ago) had the same problem. I followed the advice given elsewhere in this forum and removed the bottom cover - water running out so needed a big towel to mop it up. I stood the machine upright and restarted it - no problem! ... Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

We hav a aMaytag MJD 2000 AAW dishwashing machine displaying E3 which according to the manual means the water element does not work properly or th efilter mesh is blocked. The macine is not warming at all so we suspect the heater element is the problem. We where wondering how expensive this is to repair. Is it worth repairing or would buying a new appliance be a similar cost?

I purchased a NEW Whirlpool dishwasher from Appliance Direct in Daytona Beach FL. The dishwasher was delivered broken. It needs a new motor pump. I asked for a new machine and they said it's their policy to fix a machine that's been delivered. I think I have a lemon. It's been a month now since delivery and they haven't even repaired the machine. Do you have any advise on how I should proceed? Glenda

Motor removal Our dishwasher (Model LDS 5811WW) has LE come up when you turn it on. We were told by LG that it needs a new motor...so how do we get one? Also do you have any instructions as to properly getting it out? The clsest repair person suggested is 1 hr. from us and it would cost 3/4 of what the diswasher cost originally.

DWI612C wash cycle runs on and on and on. Believing to be a problem with water heating I tried putting a couple large pan fulls of boiling water into machine during wash cycle and this did move it on from wash to rinse. How do I replace the heating element I cant see it it is not in the dish washing compartment? I dont want to call out a repair agent as one can probably buy a new machine for what that will cost. Thank you.

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.

I just finished a service call for my 5312UC/UC12. The tecnician says he saw water leaking under neath the machine but hoses were secure and no visible crack to the motor housing, The machines pump works but very little water is actually put into the tub, hence no dishwashing. This technician says that this is a repair that most technicians avoid because it takes a long time and costs alot and violated some sort of warranty. He recommend replacement after only 7 years!

Kemore dishwasher 665.17029403 is hooked up, breaker not tripped but no power at all - lights will not come on. Power initially would be intermitent - lights on, then off, but now there is none. Is the unit worth repairing or a new machine a better option cost wise?

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy. I used J.B Zimmerman in Blue Ball,P

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.

GSD2200G00WW. When starting washer, part of the time the machine will not start, other times if machine has been running for a while and you open the door and try to restart the machine it will not restart. You can hear the motor humming as if it wants to go but it will only restart if you turn the motor shaft even just a little. I am wondering if the electric motor is dying??

Have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher (66513123K701). Was not cleaning dishes very well so we ran diagnostics on it and found a problem with the diverter motor (W10155344) so we replaced it. Now, the dishwasher is leaking from the diverter. There was a o-ring from the original diverter that we had to keep since the new motor did not come with it. Wondering if we should get a new o-ring/seal, but I cannot find mention of such a part anywhere. Is there a certain way to seat the o-ring? Is it ok to

My GE trash compactor just quit working. A little over 1 year old. I opened it and found inside the motor frame a magnetic contact that is burned up. Nothing else is wrong. This part shouldn't cost more than $10 . I can't find it anywhere. Do I have to buy a new motor for $180 to replace a perfect motor with a burned up $10 contact?


Parts sadly, aren't as inexpensive as they used to be. Hopefully, you can get away with the $25 part.\015\012\015\012http://www.repair ... GE Dishwashers

Buzzing sound we have a gold quiet lll edition , it is now buzzing when we start it. we have had a repair man here twice each time he has taken it apart and cleaned it. he has said because we have hard water, the water oxidized and some sediment has broke though the seal into the motor and now we need a new motor. does this sound right? we have had dishwashers from whirlpool for years prior. never had to change a motor. please can you offer some suggestions? thanks very much desperate in Mexico.

10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one.

The slide on the upper basket keeps falling out. It's been fixed twice but doesn't hold. The second repair man who put the slide back in the rollers said he couldn't see anything wrong with it, but it still didn't hold, so he called your tech dept. who said they had roller and slide kits at a total cost of $66 for this model. The slide kit had a new part number but the tech department didn't tell the repair man why they'd changed the part. The roller kit was one for dishwashers the sides o
