I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?

I have a GE Dishwasher: PDW8480JO1SS and it does not fully drain when I run it. I disasembled it and after finding a carrot deep in the pump area thought I had fixed it, but no luck.

I have a problem that appears to be a bad motor on a Whirlpool dishwasher. The motor costs $300 and the dishwasher is about 6 years old...Does it make sense to replace the motor or just replace the whirlpool diswasher (18 in unit = $600 new)...your thoughts?

Error code LE comes up after 2 min. when trying to run the dishwasher. We had the motor replaced when dishwasher was 1 year old then again a year later. It has been less than a year and it is doing the same thing.

Our Maytag model MDB4010AWW (8 1/2 years old) is leaving food stuck on the dishes and glasses on the top rack consistently. We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little. We posted this question to a similar forum a few weeks ago, and it was suggested that the wash pump might need replacement. What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp


It would cost you at least the 200.00 to have it replaced since the pump cost 150.00 and you would have labor added. It should last longer than it did if that's what's wrong with it. I would first observe to see if the upper spray arm is spinning and ... Dishwashers

My KitchenAid dishwasher model # kudp01ilbl2 won't start. It is the first time we're trying to start it since we had our water heater replaced (three, maybe four days ago). Not sure how much that may matter. I tried turning off electricity to the dishwasher at the fusebox (overnight), but that did nothing. Normally, you just need to hit the start button and the washing begins. Now, nothing happens. The dishwasher is about six years old.

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.

It appears that the Inlet Valve is leaking on my Kenmore dishwasher. By replacing the inlet valve do I also need to undo the connection at the bottom with the teflon tape - or can I just undo the screws at the bottom of the plate and leave that connection alone? The dishwasher is 4 years old, could something be causing the valve leaking other than the valve being bad? Thanks! :))

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers
