I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB4100AWQ When I start the Light Wash Cycle: Washer fills with water, heater comes on (I checked it with a volt meter--120 volts), timer runs, motor never runs, before the timer gets to "rinse" the heating delay light on the door comes on and the timer stops. The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

Have SHU43C and have had no problems with it. We usually run it on the Quick Wash cycle, but ran it on the Regular Wash cycle yesterday because the glasses seemed to be coming out spotty. After it ran, there were no lights on the display like there usually are. The washer had run and the dishes were clean, but it has not drained completely. There is still about an inch of water in the bottom, despite removing and checking both the Large Object Trap and Fine Filter (neither which were clogged

After wash cycles are completed there is about 1/2 gallon of water remaining in the bottom of the washer. I checked the drain that exits into a disposal and that is clear. All around the bottom of the washer base is clean and I can find no obstruction. Nothing in the owners manual gives me a clue as what else to do. I don't want to start taking things apart unless I have to.

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard - will not drain at end of cycle. After cycle is complete, water (not clean) sits at the bottom of the washer but I still unload the dishes and then turn the cycle dial around again - going past all the water heating and filling and washing - and land on the drain cycle, it will drain. Any ideas why it will not drain when I let a cycle run, but will drain once I cycle it through to the drain option?

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

GE GSD4920Z dishwasher. Problem is that it does not drain completely at the end of the cycle--about an inch of water remains. After checking for clogs, etc, we followed a troubleshooting procedure which involves a hard reset (power off, then reset twice at beginning of cycle) and this procedure successfully drains the tub. However the next time that it's used on a normal cycle, water remains again. Suggestions?

The diswasher will drain completely after the drain cycle is completed. It will then immediately begin to fill again despite no additional cycles being requested. I can hear the fill cycle begin. I can prevent the filling by opening the door slightly or by moving the float plunger up and away from the microswitch that signals to fill the bottom of the washer with water. Is there an adjustment on the float or on the length of the float plunger?


HI, The floater is not the issue here. Your problem will be with the main control assembly. The control assembly routes power to the inlet valve, and drain pump/motor. The floater is merely a regulatory ... Maytag MDB5100A Dishwasher

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't. I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working?

Holding water There is water in the bottom of the machine after the cycle is done. There is definitely draining going on throughout the cycle, but it's not draining completely at the end -and the water that is left is murky. Spoke to a friend who tells me it sounds like the dump valve, but in checking on line, that doesn't seem to be a part that even exists any more. Do I need to buy a new dishwasher? This was not in the budget this year... Thanks for any advice! Nancy

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with
