Having problems with your 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

\015\012I understand your frustration with having to deal with major repairs to a new applaince. However, I don't belive this is the correct forum that you need to use. I have found a helpful link that you may try in the hopes that you can get a resolution this this:

\015\012http://us.lge.com/general/contact.jsp
\015\012
\015\012Use the "U.S.A. Corporate Headquarters" contact information. Since the appliance is still fairly new, and you have experienced some significant problems with it, the company may have recall information about this appliance, or may be willing to reimburse some of your expenditures. Be prepared to have your Model Number and Serial Number handy. A detailed email, outlining all the dates of repairs, costs you had to incur, followed by the financial burden this has caused you, may be a good place to start. Save any emails you send for future reference. I can't make any promises, but I do hope you can find some assistance that you need.

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.

Need the wiring diagram for the front panel/door of the dishwasher. The wiring diagram in the owners manual does not provide adequate description of which wires connect where. My problem is that, in taking off the door, two wires became disconnected and I cannot tell where they should be reconnected. I called Viking and they are unwilling to provide this (they prefer I call an authorized repair person). Does anyone know whether a repair manual exists for this and where I might get ahold of one.

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner 3. It sat up for a few months because the control panel went out and it took a while to save up and order a new one. Now it blew the thermal fuse. I put a 15amp automotive fuse in it to try it, and it runs until it fills up and blows the fuse again. I am trying to figure out how to test the motor and the heating element to see if they are shorted. My local repair shop told me that they want to replace my new panel with their panel first, and that after that


A 15amp automotive fuse is rated for a 12VDC system in an automobile, not a 125VAC houshold electrical system in an appliance. I don't think your automotive fuse can handle the start current being drawn by the main wash pump as the dishwasher starts ... Dishwashers

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.

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

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers
