Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 and the detergent door will not open automatically anymore. The compartment is thoroughly cleaned and wont even open if its empty so gook or over filling is not the problem. I believe I probably knocked off some part that makes it open at the proper time. If someone could explain how the process works and/or submits a picture of the parts, I could perhaps deduce what is missing. Thank you in advance as this is driving me nuts!

My whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 detergent door will not open during wash cycle. Yes the compartment, springs and door are thoroughly clean. Will not open if I just close the door and remains empty. I'm wondering if perhaps I knocked off some random part that makes it open. So please tell me how darn thing opens and perhaps a pic of the parts so I could see if ones missing. Thank you for any help offered for this, its driving me nuts.

Hi - My Electrolux ESL63010 dishwasher seems to be stuck mid programme. It was part way through a programme when we had a pipe burst. Pipe all sorted now but the dishwasher just makes a noise like it is asking for water but nothing happens. When you open the door, it makes three short beeps and the light flashes on the programme menu. Any ideas how to solve? It definitely is not the pipes as the washing machine feeds from the same pipe and is working fine. Help!

I have an ASKO D3250 and it has recently started making a loud noise from the pump area. It starts as soon as the cycle begins and doesn't stop even if you open the door. It seems to stop about 90 seconds into the cycle. Noise is best described as a noisy solenoid but could also be some sort of actuator that is stuck. What part is the problem?


All power and sounds should stop when any dishwasher door is opened.Your door switch may be stuck causing it to continue.The 90 second sound at the beginning of the cycle is the water pump extracting any residual water before taking on cl ... Asko 24 in. D3250 Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch Dishwasher I have a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, I made the "mistake" to try to see if I could fix the jammed handle from the door. Unfortunately, (did not realize the top panel comes off without opening the entire door). I removed the screws from the door frame (Inside panel), and the door springs/latched got loose. I would like to put it back together, but I dont have any diagrams on the door to make sure all parts are in place to put the door back together. I have been havin


Hi ED,\015\012\015\012It sounds like a real problem here. If the springs are still in one piece, my best guess is to to remove the springs from the door.

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

I have a three year old Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1148XTP which is making a load flickering noise when it release the soap during the wash cycle. I removed the front panel and looks like it small solinoid that had a part number 91127.00.1404504 120V 60Hz making all the racket. So my question is could it be as simple as just replacing this part or is there more to this problem?

I have a 3 year old stainless steel kitchen aide dishwasher. Recently when opening the door there was a loud "sprong" noise. There is now a cord hanging out the bottom of the door and the "spring" action that makes it easy to open a close is not working. The door opens "heavy" and will go to the full open position.

The door has always made a horrible noise that I could not get to go away (I shot some WD40 into all available places). I learned to live with the noise. NOW, the spring on the door has obviously broken. I am afraid someone will open the dishwasher and hurt a small child with the falling door! I see where you addressed the broken spring problem. Do you think I could fix the horrible noise at the same time? Do you think this is something my husband could fix?

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,

I have a Whirlpool DU1055XTSS dishwasher that completely stopped working. I took it apart, found the thermal fuse to be bad, ordered a new, then replaced it and it worked for 2 loads. Now the thermal is open again. What could be "taking it out"? Is the thermal fuse strictly a thermal or does it repsond to current? It's 2 years old, i have already replaced the heating element, the main control board, and now the thermal....twice.

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

My Maytag dishwasher (DWU7400BAE)does not turn on. The latch micro-switches work; replaced the timer switch, still doesn't work; makes no sound of any kind when timer switch is turned. Could this be a relay problem, or is there a solenoid that activates the water flow?

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t
