Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens. However, the soap will just run down the inside of the door and pool on th

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers

Powdered soap residue (cascade) sticks in the dispenser after dishwasher has completed wash cycle. I have tried the new gel pacs and they also seem to stick to the dispenser even after the the dispenser door has opened. What needs to be done?

Whirlpool dishwasher model DUB700XB has quit cycling. Fills with water but will not start wash cycle. Making intermittent humming noise unless the door is open to disengage the switch, even when on stop. No LEDs lighting when rotating the dial through the various cycles.

Soap dispenser The soap dispenser door does not open automatically as it should... stays closed throughout the cycle unless we stop the cycle, open the dishwasher door and then open the soap dispenser door any suggestions? This is a Maytag DWU 9200.

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

My dishwasher SMS 448 works up to the point in the cycle when the dispenser is supposed to dislodge the Powerball detergent. It doesn't, and the machine stops. If I open the door and click the dispenser, the Powerball falls into the dishwasher unit itself.
