I have a GE dishwasher (GSD4020Y70BB) new in 1996. I replaced the whole motor assembly in 2007, seal was leaking. My dishes are not getting clean now, dried food left on plates, coffee stains in cups not being cleaned. I removed main spray arm, found nothing, turned washer on and plenty of water gushing out. I took the cover off sump all clean. I removed the filter screen in the back, there appears to be a valve with some soft rubber around it. Water gushes out of this, does stop during the cyc

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it

3 problems: 1. lower drawer is hard to close; seems to be sticking on something. 2. lower drawer retains water (2 inches) after completing a cycle. 3. F1 fault code on both drawers with alert occurred when washers were not in use. I had to turn off the electric circuit breaker to make it stop.


Ok where to start, first thing the bottom draw is hard to close because they use 2 little motors on either side to pull a lid with a seal on it down on top of each draw when u start it to keep the water in, if its hard to close the motors are damaged ...

Whirlpool - Quit Partner I - DU1048XTP: Start at the beginning - Dishwasher would go through most of it's wash cycle and stop and the 'Start/Resume' LED would start flashing. Would press 'Start/Resume' and wash cycle would start again and run non-stop. Would have to hit 'Cancel/Drain' to stop. Called local service tech and he said board would need to be replaced. First board he brought failed right away, second board was installed. Tech also replaced latch handle assembly because it was missing

I have a Kenmore Dishwasher Model #665.168790000 and the water fills just fine and empties fine when cancelling cycle but when pressing any wash cycle the pump/motor just makes a loud humming noise and does nothing. I took apoart the lower assemblies to clean everything out but the problem hasn't gone away. Do I need to replace the motor or the whole motor assembly (also contains impeller kit)??? Also, I don't think I need to replace the whole sump & motor assembly do I???

I have a leaky gate valve shaft seal that I want to replace myself (part # WD8X181). It only leaks when in the drain cycle. Repair manuals are not available for this model. How much disassembly is involved to replace this seal? Do I need to gain access to the shaft from inside the housing pump assembly (drain sump)?

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

LG dishwasher LDS4821BB just started making a new grinding sound while washing. No similar sounds while filling or draining, so I wouldn't think it is the motor assembly like many answers suggest. We installed it March 2009. This sound may be similar to one which led to the motor assembly being replaced while still under warranty about nine months ago. Unfortunately, the LG repairman was too hard of hearing to be able to diagnose that replacement, so he did it based on our description of

Child Lock light glows without pressing Energy Saver Dry button for four seconds. Cannot turn off by pressing Engery Saver Dry button for four seconds. Turning off main power and turning back on doesn't solve problem. But turning off main power for extented period, over night, and turning back on does fix proble for a very short period but Child Lock does come back on by itself. Is replacing the Console Assembly the only fix? Is there some button sequence to disable Child Lock altogher?

I have a SMEG DWF614 SS dishwasher. I continue to get an E8 error message. The diverter valve motor turns freely & the motor turns freely when they are seperated. However, when they are assembled, the motor turns the valve & continues to try turning the valve when the valve is on its stop position. Is the motor & valve faulty or is it the control. If you can answer, what part number would I require. Regards Leighton Davies

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

Telmann Dishwasher TEL 12DWM. Dishwasher started to make weird wooshing start-stopping sounds at the beginning of the wash cycle so I stopped it. Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck. Cant get into the water jet part due to connectors that require specfic tools to remove and replace. Any thoughts?? thanks in advance, Michael

Dishwasher has stopped working, Hasn't completely drained water. When you restart it, it makes a humming sound and then stops. The light above the 'on' button, usually blue, turns red. Have removed most of the water ourselves and tried to restart it to no avail. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
