Bosch she4am Unit starts briefly, then stops about a minute into the operation and lights the CLEAN led. I located the diagnostics code paper, ran the test a few times, and come up with the same code...the CLEAN led lit indicates a door switch problem. I removed the door switch, it's a magnetic hall effect transistor..seems to work but not sure it's showing proper voltages. It reads 8vdc or so across the switch with door open, and about 11.7vdc with door closed. Seems too narrow a range to me

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDS03ST We built our house and had this dishwasher sitting in the box for almost 2 yrs before finally using it. After finally installing it I find that occasionally the door to the soap does not open for washing as I find out when the dishes are supposed to be clean and I open the door to hear the soap then pop out of the dispenser. How do I fix this problem?


I have seen a lot of dishwashers that have this problem if they have a flip open lid for the soap .. often its caused by the top adjustable tray blocking the soap door from opening .. i put a camera inside to figure out what was happening ..in some ...

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time. Sometimes about 40 percent of the time, when we open the main door after it is finished with a normal cycle, we find a big clump of detergent left in the main detergent compartment and the detergent door is open. It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening

Is it common for Kitchenaid dishwashers to have water pooling inside them? It's almost like the valve for water coming in isn't shutting all the way...in the middle of the day, we'll find water inside the dishwasher...it drips out the front when you open the door...but when you turn it on, it doesn't have any problem draining the system...mysteriously, we find water in the bottom...what's up?


There is a rubber flapper valve that keeps water from running back into your dishwasher. It's a $5.00 part, but it's a bear to get to,\015\012\015\012You have to pull the drain pump to access this flapper.\015\012\015\012Also ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP02FRSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Rebadged Siemens dishwasher model no. SE6TIE1GB / 13 TKD 795 / 2. When turning on, the dishwasher makes the "normal" noise of washing but after less than a minute it stops and refuses to wash anything. Ive tried pressing the reset button but no help. Worth mentioning, the night prior to that, I switched on the dishwasher before sleeping and when waking up at 5am, it was still washing so I manually turned it off and opened the door to find some water at the bottom of the tray.

I have a Blanco Dishwasher Model BFDWC65X. It appears that the thermostat may be faulty as the water gets extremely hot on cycle 3 which is supposed to operate at 45 degrees centigrade. When I open the door mid-cycle, clouds of steam emerge and the whole dishwasher smells hot - almost a burning smell. I have found an online source for a replacement thermostat, but would like to know how difficult a job it will be to replace the thermostat. Also where can I find a manual that details where the th

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

Indesit d63 dishwasher, door locked shut. took top off+got to latch, the plastic catch wouldn't pull out of the latch. undid it all, all seems unbroken but cannot seem to arrange the latch so that it will allow the plastic catch to come out when levered. also not sure if the handle is supposed to click the switch to another position, or just tweak the switch as it opens the door. is a new latch supplied with the switch ?


Check with whoever you order the latch from, usually parts are individual for electrical parts and never assume that the screw or washer will come with new one, save every piece. ... Indesit 24 in. D63 Free-standing Dishwasher

I believe there are counter weights on the main door that allow you to open the door a few inches. Mine will only open the the full [down] open position. What typically goes wrong and how do I fix it? Also there is a streak of sopa leading from the rinse aid fill location. Where do I look to find parts. One of the plastic spacers on the handle broke.


Most of my exprience has been that there is a pully/spring arrangement for the door tension. You'll have to pull your D/W out far enough to see and adjust.\015\012Regards, --W/D-- ... LG Dishwashers
