I have a Zanussi ZSF 2420. Every other wash or so the door for the powder does not open. If I actually open the dishwasher to check, sometimes it opens then and the washing powder tab falls out. Sometimes I open the machine and the door is open, but the powder tab has not fallen into the machine. Any solutions to this?

I actually don't know what type of Bosch I have. I know that is a problem, but maybe you can still help. It has a simple panel that says: Pot Scrubber, regular wash, quick wash, rinse and hold. When I turn on quick wash, sometimes it says 38 min. 45 min. 56 min. We want to keep it at 38 minutes and we don't know why it varies. If we have to open it mid-cycle, it switches to a higher cycle time. How do we set it for 38?

Detergent dispenser door Whirlpool DU7400 won't open. I tested 300109 ACTUATOR resistance and it is closed. I ran washer and saw the actuator receives a current several times during the complete wash cycle. How else can I test? I notice the lever on the Acutator is quite floppy. Should it be stiff? Also the dispenser door does pop open if pushed from behind so that seems OK? Does anyone have the actual testing procedure for this problem? Thanks for anyone's help!

When I started it, it made a loud grinding sound which continued whenever it was actually washing/rinsing. It was washing and rinsing the dishes ok. Eventually I didn't hear anymore grinding but the dishes had not been washed or rinsed. The detergent cup was open and the detergent spilled down the door. I ran it again and could hear the pump running. It ran through the cycles but the water was not being circulated. I suspect that something is caught in the disposer blade or something and is bloc

I have a Kenmore 665.16039401. The 3 right hand buttons on the keypad; Delay Hours, Cancel/Drain and Start/Resume do not respond and I cannot start the washer. Doing the self-diagnostic test by pressing "Heated Dry - Normal Wash - Heated Dry - Normal Wash" results in all of the LED's lighting and the washer starting a full 20 minute self-test cycle in which all functions seems to work properly. Opening and closing the door during this testing stops and then re-starts the washer appropriately

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep

Model shy66co5uc/14 soap dispenser will not open during wash cycle. I can open it manually, but it does not open in any of the wash cycles.

After running a cycle, there is some water in the tub and the soap dispenser is open but the soap has only run down the inside of the door. It does not sound like there is a vigorous spray during the wash cycle. Opening the door during the wash cycle reveals only a little water reaching the upper arm.

Only about 1/2 the amount of water is let in when the pump turns on and the washing cycle begins. Opening the door shows that the water level does not reach the bottom of the float. When I close the door, the wash cycle begins again but stops after a few seconds. This is when the water begins to fill again. This time, the wat
