We live in an apartment and our hot point dishwashers timing is all off and i thought if i could fix it myself, i'd love to do that instead of calling our manager, i will call him, but if its an easy fix i'd like to try it out.. it will just stop in mid cycle, and you have to manually more it a fraction of an inch to get it restarted, then at the end it doesnt fully drain, and the drying takes forever, so if i cant fix it, i'll ask for a new one..
It might need a new mechanical timer (sounds like the timer is sticking) installed and the parts will cost money... so you might want to go the route of the manager. The dial that you turn to set the dishwasher is part of the mechanical timer. Someti ... Dishwashers
I have a Magtag dishwaher that is leaking out of the bottom right hand corner somewhere. It is at least 10 years old, works great otherwise. What should I do ? Is it an easy fix? Is it worth it to fix it or toss it?
I will assume the leak is at the front on one of the corners of the door. We had this problem and it appeared to be caused by someone mistakenly placing too much weigh on the door when it was open. Our solution was to bend the door back in the oppo ... Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

My dishwasher displays 9e on the front panel. Its error code for low water level. I already reset the breaker, and that did not do it. what else could I do to fix it before calling someone for repair? I am handy with fixing things.
There is nothing wrong with the solutions detailed above however, there are no permanent fixes to the 9E error code and the sticking float/micro-switch actuator. I removed the "float box" by first removing the tub filler, or whatever the splash/bubb ... Samsung Dishwashers

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem

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?
