\015 Pump is not noisy, but is on in the empty cycle\015

Answers :

Hello..
\015\012If the machine has an drain pump..remove it and check the impeller..can be broken if is a plastic made.
\015\012If the machine does not have a drain pump...the drain solenoid is bloked on close and the water is not draining.
\015\012You can check also the drain hose to see if is stoked somewhere.

Hi, I have an ASKO D3250 dishwasher and it keeps stopping during the wash cycle and flashing the heavy pots and pots symbol simultaneously. I tried cleaning the filter basket and found a little plastic part floating in there that has printed on it PP-T20. I don't know where this piece goes or if it's even the culprit. There is a little bit of water not draining from the filter area when I unscrew the outer filter basket, I cleaned it out, but when I re-run it, it still stops and gives the dual f

Dishlex Hi there, thanks for your quick response. I turned the unit off last night, and tried again this morning. I can see the wash pump on the side and it looks easy to get at, but the drain pump looks a bit more of a mission. are you able to expand a little bit. Should i remove the rinse pump and check that it's not obstructed by anything maybe?

I have a Quiet Guard Standard model #587.151524 that is not cleaning the dishes. I took the bottom spray arm and screens out and cleaned them, (they had a heavy buildup of what I would say is calcium. The arm cleaned up fine but the screen still has some areas that will not allow the water to drain. I tried CLR and it helped but the screen is still probably 60% clogged. Do you think this is the problem getting the dishes clean and if so do you have any suggestions about how to clean the screen?

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

Kenmore elite 1393 worked fine for a week or two then began to stop in mid cycle,we could drain the water and try again but would shut off almost immediately. sometimes trying to restart it there would be NO power to any buttons, after waiting for awhile the buttons/lights would work again but the washer would not run a full cycle.blue light would light then go out within a minute or so.

I have a DU8000XX6 series Kenmore dishwasher that won't drain the water properly. There is about a half inch of water in the tub and the float is raised (not sitting on tub bottom). When I lift up the float a little more I can hear the float switch make. I would assume that when the water is high enough the float switch makes and energizes a solenoid valve in the drain to drain the water, but shouldn't it stay open until all the water drains? Lifting the float while the dishwasher is off wo

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

I am trying to install a new Maytag MDBH945AWB Dishwasher and have to run the drain hose under the machine in order to get it to the sink. Each time I try to use the hose that comes with the machine it snaps in two and breaks. I have tried to look for a replacement hose that would stand up to the abuse but all I can find is the original. Is there a replacement I can get that is more flexible than the one that comes with it? At this point I am rather embarrased about going back to Home Depot

The rotating arm at the bottom of my LG intello dishwasher keeps falling off. It is the stainless bit that sits ontop of the rotating bit at the bottom of the machine.

It has 4 little grips on the bottom but just wont stay on the arm? Has something come off or worn away for it not to stay on. It just swivels round an

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

Hello. my dishwasher leaves gunk on the inside of glasses that were wiped clean before washing. It seems like that would mean the drain to the disposal is clogged but the hose is clear and the impellar is free. I blew on the hose and got movement in the disposal. the impellar is clean and new looking. I thought it would be a little dirty? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will answer any question you have in case i didn't explain it well.
