I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n

The top drawer on our dishdrawers makes a clicking kind of noise for about the first 2 - 5 mins of being on. Then goes fine with the occassional clicking noise during the cycle. It is slightly noisier than the bottom drawer. When the cycle is finished there is a couple of inches of water left in the bottom, so the dishes don't dry properly. The bottom drawer works really well with no problems at all. What do you suggest?

Our exectrolux dishwasher has moisture mainly on the door upon completion of usage. I have also noticed that I have to dry most of the dishes with a towel due to moisture. There is no water standing in the bottom. I have also checked water temperture as well as settings and still have the moisture problem.

I just purchased an LDF6920. It does not dry the dishes. In fact, there is water remaining in the bottom, and all the dishes and drum and door are beaded with water. It suggests putting some sort of water removing chemical, but I have never owned a dishwasher that did not made some effort to dry the dishes. I have to hand dry or have spots on everything. I am very, very disappointed with my new, and expensive, purchase.

My dishwasher won't drain. It runs through the whole wash and dry cycle...and when I open it to unload the dishes the bottom is filled with standing water. None of the lines that I can see appear to be kinked, and I'm not sure what else to check. I inistalled the dishwasher myself becasue my husband was working out of town...this was about a year ago. Haven't had any problems with it until now. Thanks for any help or suggestions you're able to offer. Christine Fitzpatrick


If you hear the drain pump run after wash and rinse cycles then it is likely the problem is in the kitchen drain end. Have you got a disposal unit in the kitchen sink. Sometime it is full and causing a block.\015\012\015\012If you don't h ... Dishwashers

Our dishes smell like vomit after they have dried. We run them through the dishwasher, they seem to smell okay. Then when Dry, the smell returns. We have tried vinegar and tang rinses to no avail.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher did not drain the water out of the bottom after the dishes were washed last night. Could I possibly have pushed a wrong button to keep it from draining, or do I have a problem? All the dishes were clean. Should I run it through another wash cycle? I've got water standing in the bottom of my dishwasher.


Yes , If the program controller has hung it would have skipped the drain cycle. So try to redo the cycle and see if the drain works, is not check the program controller and the drain valve/pump.- if there is food particles that have clogged and block ... Kenmore Dishwashers

After I run the dishwasher, water stands at the bottom and it smells. I have had the dishwasher for five years. The washer seems to be working properly it's just that water stands at the base of the washer. Is it normal for water to always stand there?


No it's not normal, you are probably having some cloge in the drain pipe, you could try with a pice of wire to pick it up or hose it down, or use some comercial unplaguners like mr. muscle or something like that, i think that this would do the trick ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that there is no problem in the plumbing but more with the pump. I even use the wt/dry vac and removed water and ran it but still comes back with water at the bottom. also the dishes smell like soap. Help!!!


The plumber did not make an air gap in the dishwasher drain hose when he reattached it to the new disposal. Look under your sink, does the hose (attached to the disposal) go down and through the cabinet? If so, that is definitely the issue. Simple ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si
