Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We have a kitchenaid KUDP01FLSS6 built in dishwasher, and the door pops open several times during a cycle. Is this something that can be repaired or is it just a common problem? Thanks!


Answers :

You should adjust the spring tension on the door. There are 3 settings. Move it to a lower number to tighten the spring. Be sure to adjust both sides of the door to the same setting.

My Bosch dishwasher has several problems: 1) Water doesn't completely drain out and dishwasher kind-of smells when I open it -- I do keep the filter very clean. 2) The dishwasher takes HOURS to go through one load, no matter what the time says on the display and no matter what type of cycle you choose -- quick, delicate or regular. 3) The red display often displays something that looks like "2h" at the beginning of the cycle. 4) The place where you put the detergent doesn't shut.

I have a Bosch 5306 from about 2001. It seems my problem is not unheard of, but the description of the diagnostic routine I've seen is lacking. My problem is this: Poor Cleaning / EXTREMELY Prolonged Cylce Time (i.e., Timer starts off at some time... then jumps UP to longer time... counts down through the cycle... stays on "1" for hours). I'm okay enough with tools and manuals to consider fixing it myself and am looking for: a) reasonable diagnosis; b) source for repair (not owner) manual; c

Dishwasher smoking Started cycle, everything seemed fine. Opened it to put something in and when I closed it to restart it sounded strange. Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

KitchenAid KUDI10FL dishwasher- The door spring system broke and I repaired it, but now all of the sudden the dishwasher will not start.

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water. Once that was done, I tried to start a new cycle and every time I push start, the green clean light flashes and the "Start" button goes off. Any help. Really don't want a repair guy.

My glassware almost seems like it has breadcrumbs stuck to it. I have run several empty cycles but the problem persists. Is there a filter I am supposed to be cleaning or something?

We have a Bosch Diswasher Model SHX-46A05UC that we purchased three years ago. We have loved it! This week it started running a long long time and won't finish on its own. Also the santitized cycle is not working. We live in a remote mountain town and our local appliance repair man refuses to work on it because it is a Bosche and he hates them. Please help! Can we do something on our own before having to pull the dishwasher and take it out of town for repair? Thank you...Jackie

Our Asko D3112 was not draining, so we had maintenance drain the hoses to clear any blockage but it did nothing. They said it must be our pump not working.

I have a Bosch dishwasher, model #SHU43C02UC/14, which has stopped working - no water enters the inside nor is there any drain cycle - just nothing. At the same time, I had to have the new control board put in as part of the Bosch recall. The tech comes out, puts in the new board - still nothing. He says something is wrong with the board even though the problem existed before the new board was installed. He takes everything back to his shop and tells me he's trying to contact Bosch tech support
