Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Seem to have an earth fault with a prima lpr 450 dishwasher runs for about 15 min then trips our electric.It did a few times from new (about 3 years old now) then stopped doing it, now does it nearly every wash.Any help would be nice.Thanks Gary

Hello gcsounds,
\015\012If I understand your problem correctly, it appears that you have a ground fault ( or earth fault) that is causing your breaker to trip. I am assuming ( but don't know for sure ) that your dishwasher is hard wired into a junction box and that junction box is fed power from your circuit breaker panel. I am also assuming that the circuit breaker is either a Ground Fault Interupt ( GFI ) or standard type and that breaker is what you are saying is tripping with every wash cycle. There are some details that need to be filled in for me by you in order for me to fully understand your wiring scheme and suggest ways to resolve your problem. First off, can you provide details on how your dishwasher is wired ( as I suggested above or other) and secondly, what voltage are you running it at? If you are in the US then in all probability you are running your dishwasher at 120VAC @ 60 hz but if you aren't then please elaborate. Once I have that information, I may be able to assist diagnosing and resolving your problem.

I set up a drip system years ago and now am looking to replace it (old, worn, leaks) but the problem is this-I can't push any fitting (be it connectors, tees, etc) onto the main hose. Both hose and fittings are 1/2''. The fittings in the original system were not near as difficult to use-I also tried hot water (fittings) and ice water (hose), nothing. Is there any size difference between the old and new components?


It's not really a solution-it seems there are two sizes OD (.700", .620") both called 1/2" tubing. The appropriate sized fittings must therefore be used ... Raindrip R333CT Swivel Tee Adapter

SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

Model number 66515632000 Kenmore Ultra wash with quite guard about 8 years old Washer stopped near end of rinse cylce, dishes look clean, water in washer did not drain and looks clean. All attempts to restart washer, or hit drain etc result in attempt to start and then it stops. sounds like trying to start a car with a very weak battery.


Unfortunately it sounds like you have one of two possibilities. A) You have something like a piece of glass or food ect. that has worked its way down into your pump and is tying up the impeller or pump as its trying to start. -To op ... Dishwashers

I have an 8 year-old Kenmore 665.16912 dishwasher. Worked fine until two days ago. Then it stopped working altogether: nothing lights up on the front panel. I have checked the 120 in the electrical box, the door switch is working, the thermal fuse is working and there is 120 volts at the white and black connections to the timer control board. I bought a new timer control board for $120 and that did not fix the problem. What else could be causing the unit to completely stop working?

I have a Bosch dishwasher she44c05uc/40 It is 3-4 years old. Recently I noticed that the cycle times have gotten much longer. Since then there is a sewer smell in the washer especially when starting a new cycle it comes out of the disposal. I'm wondering if the pump isn't heating the water hot enough. I've also noticed that the dishes aren't getting near as clean as they were before all this started. Especially stuck on food. It used to clean everything now dishes almost need rinsed.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

No water The serial number is not my dishwahser, however mine is about 6+ years old and has worked fine, I keep it in fairly good order, cleaning rotar arms weekly and filters as often as needed. Yesterday 4th August the timer which is a dial type, was getting as far as the next section and stopping, also it would seem that no water is being drawn through the arms. Are we near the end of life or is it fixable?????


Check first the filters on the inlet water line.\015\012Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)).\015\012If it doesn't work, test that it get ... Neff 24 in. S5409X0 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

MDB6709AWW1 Poor Quality Control Panel Our dish washer is 2 years old this month and the control panel broke!!! My service technician told me that he has seen DOZENS of new Maytag dishwasher control service panels break and is convinced it is a design flaw. When I called Maytag the customer service rep had the NERVE to tell me "that because the house is near the beach, I must get a lot of power outages and power surges, that is why the control panel broke."

It's 2 years old, i have already replaced the heating element, the main control board, and now the thermal....twice.

My dishwasher is a Fridigdaire FDB510LCS1, approximately five years old. The timer/knob stops advancing at about 7 o'clock, somewhere in the wash cycle. But the washer keeps running. I marked the place where it stops and, on additional tests, it stops in exactly the same place. I can advance the knob slightly past this location and the washer continues through to the end of the cycle.


Hi\015\012\015\012This is due to a faulty timer on your dishwasher. You would need to replace it to resolve this issue. You can buy the timer for your dishwasher from this link---\015\012\015\012 ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher
