My Hotpoit FDL570g dishwasher (that is less than 2 years old) is tripping the circuit breaker originally during a wash and now when the unit is switched off and and door is closed. I thought it may be a door lock / microswitch problem and replaced the microswitch. The dishwasher was good for four seperate washes but now the problem has come back when crockery is loaded when the machine is switched off. I'm going to check for bare / rubbed leads but not expecting to find this with a dishwasher of

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

The Simpson Silencio 850 door does not shut properly and the dishwasher stops operating,but once you push hard on the door,the dishwasher starts again. There are no leaks ,but the door must have a sensor registering the correct pre-load force against the door seal , which in turn,allows the machine to operate.

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDV24SE. The "door open" light stays on. I have tested the switch on the door and it appears to be working. There is nothing blocking the door closing, the light just stays on which prevents the dishwasher from working. I am technically astute, just can't solve this problem (yet)..

Item: Whirlpool Ultra Dishwasher Age: 3 yrs Problem: Not enough water to effectively wash the dishes. State: When the dishwasher is started, the fill valve opens as normal. 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

I have two problems with my GUI1500 dishwasher. The 1st is that when water starts entering the dishwasher I hear a loud hammering/vibrating sound. It's strange, but the sound will stop if I turn on a faucet in the house. The other problem I have is that the soap dispensor will no longer stay closed. The Plastic tab that holds it shut has basically disintegrated. Will this cause the dishes to not come clean? Can this part be replaced? I don't see any visable screws holding it onto the door.


Hi - welcome to FixYa,\015\012\015\012The first problem isn't a fault with the washer, it's a plumbing problem called "water hammer", which is a resonating vibration through your pipes.
