Dishwasher Repair I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that came with the house. The house and washer are probably about seven years old. It woked fine for the first few months but now, when I turn it on to wash it fills with water but then it will not go into wash cycle (i.e. there is no water sent into the dish compartment). It will go through every cycle by filling and emptying through wash and rinse but no water goes into the dish compartment. Is there a pump that is perhaps not working? How is th

"Sensing" Light Moved a 5 year old dishwasher that was functioning just fine to a different location. Hooked everything up and gave it a test run without any dishes in it. Fills and heats water properly, then buzzing noise heard for a ling time and then it drains the water out, with out circulating the water into the washer arms, etc. Any guesses? Could something have gotten lodged in the pump during transport?


There is a relay on the soap dispenser, if it is a Kenmore quietguard 4, I had the same type of noise, the repairman replaced the dispenser, which to me made no sense, because the relay is activated from the control board.

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

It's a Karcher presure washer K2.54, one and a half years old. Was working fine last time but when turned on now there is very little pressure through the hose and the water seems to be filling up inside and spurting out through the vent on the front


This sounds like the seals may have been damaged inside the pump or that the water inlet/outlet could be damaged. If you take off the front cover (use a star bit screw driver) then run the pressure washer you will be able to see were it is leaking fr ... Karcher Pressure Washers

Got a Dewalt 3800 PSI Pressure Washer with 4.0 GPM with a Honda GX 390 gas engine. Tipped it up to roll it out to my truck and got a big puddle of water with what looked like Pump oil in the puddle. Can you help???? It is less than a year old with 10-15 hours on it.....


Could very well be. Did you check the oil level and condition of oil? If its too full or if its light brown milky, then water has entered crankcase. Pressure washer pumps cannot stand to ever let run dry. Even a little. Also excessive idling will ov ... Dewalt 3800 PSI Pressure Washer

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke.

My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell immediately after filling. I have a 20-year-old KitchenAid KUDS220T3 dishwasher. The racks are a little corroded, but it still cleans dishes just fine. About two months ago, it started smelling like a dead animal immediately after the dishwasher fills with hot water, during the time the water is being heated, but before agitation begins. The smell appears to be coming from around the door. If I open the door, everything inside the dishwasher smells fine.


This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Mo ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.

Whirlpool GU1100XLTQ1 dishwasher, 4 years old is leaking water during cycle.

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom.
