Soap door on my Whirlpool dishwasher model # DU810SWKU0 does not open.I had inner door off to check rinse agent problem.Is there something i did putting inner door back on? If I close soap door and turn timer knob on outside of door the soap door will open after I make two full turns of the knob.If this cant be fixed can I just put soap in the bottom tray that has no door or put soap in both trays and do not close the soap door? Thank You RH.

Our ge profile dishwasher 6 years old does not shut off at the end of the cycle, even after 3 to 4 hours, you put your hand on the door and you can feel slight vibration if you open the door and close it , it will start what ever cycle you had it set on all over again. It cleans and dries the dishes, but I have to turn the breaker off. at the end . Paul

I have a mod. GSD2200G00WW . It has low water level and not enough pressure to turn the spray arm. When first starting i see water coming in but not enough. I added water in manually with a container and turned on and the spray arm rotated fine. I closed the door and turned back on and the water drained out of it instantly back to a low level. What now?

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle. (I ran it with the bottom filters removed) upshot is the pressure of water was really poor. also, when I first turned

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

I have a maytag dishwasher (model # dwu491oaax - not sure if the 4th lettr from end is a "zero" or letter). It has never been a problem before, but hadn't been used in awhile. The light in the front is not on, and when I close the door and turn the knob, it makes the same "clicking" noise it used to, but the machine does not come on. Any ideas? is there a reset button somewhere?

My Siemens dishwasher SL34A sometimes makes loud vibration noises from the supply line at the water pump connection. I can turn off the water and back on it will quit, but sometimes starts again. And it does not matter how open or closed the supply line valve is either. I'm told it is likely the water pump, but this model has a combination water pump/motor assembly and I do not care to put another $230 into it. thx, TS.

The pump doesn't seem to put out enough water pressure to turn the various revolving heads/nozzles in the washer - all washing heads are operable (ie unblocked) while the S shaped nozzle at the base and the small round nozzle at the top/ceiling of the cabinet do revolve slightly or slowly - but the two main nozzles spout water but not enough to revolve Is this a defective pump or a partially blocked pump ? - or something else - I have checked everything else and they appear to be functioning

I need to know how to reset the "brain" the start button is flashing and won't stop when I close the door it makes a humming noise and no water is running. I turned off the breaker but it won't reset. Is there like a "hard reset" I can do


I don't think you may need to reset the dishwasher. All that might be happening is the float switch located in the base may be malfunctioning. It could be stuck. Try pushing it down and see if it lifts up by itself. It should only lift when water is ... GE Adora GHDA656LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I've had an LG LDF6810ST dishwasher for about three years with no problems. All of a sudden it won't close. It finished the wash, I emptied it, and when I went to close the door it wouldn't close all the way. It was as if something was getting caught not allowing the door to close completely. I searched and found nothing blocking, then I looked at the door latch and it looks as if the child lock feature is engaged. So the door is locked while open. I turned the child lock on and off through the

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

I have a bosch dishwasher model number SGS0902GB/05. I use tablets instead of detergent. I put the tablet in the Dispenser and close the lid, noproblem.
