Having problems with your Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers ?

We are getting a strong odor from our two compartment dishwasher, would welcome any suggestions


Answers :

Get\015\012 rid of any odor that may be coming from the plumbing pipes your \015\012dishwasher shares with the sink. Pour a half a cup of baking soda down \015\012each sink drain. Pour cups of vinegar down each drain until all the \015\012baking soda is washed away. After 5 minutes, run very, very hot water \015\012down each of the drains.


Clean out your garbage disposal. \015\012Slice a lemon and put the slices down your disposal drain. Run your \015\012disposal with the cold water running. You can use just the lemon or an \015\012orange rind if you don't have a whole lemon.

Pour two cups of \015\012vinegar into the dishwasher and let it sit for an hour and then let the \015\012dishwasher run through a cycle with the hottest water possible. Repeat \015\012the process if that does not help. You can use baking soda instead of \015\012vinegar - just sprinkle it in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Between\015\012 washes, pour \302\274 cup lemon juice into the dishwasher cup, and run a short\015\012 but complete wash cycle. Is will not only deodorize the dishwasher, but\015\012 will also help get rid of any metal build-up
Run it empty, hot, with a cup or two of vinegar in it.

On an AEG Favorit 64570 VI we have an error 20. Manual indicates a drainage problem, however when we pour in water, it gets pumped out without a problem. No obstructing in the exhaust tube. Next we checked the pressure sensor, by taking it out and blowing into it. It clicked as pressure was applied to it, so the inner switch worked. Everything is clean, but still we get an error 20. What does seem strange is that the appliance does not take in water. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hello, I have a CONSTRUCTA S9W1C dishwasher with aquastop. Unfortunately, I tried once to start it with the house water supply closed. Of course it stopped after a few seconds. After that time, when I start it, the water pumps works and after some seconds the cycle stops. It gets no water. I've checked and noticed that no water passes through the aquastop valve. The aqua stop has two wires that get into the dishwasher. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time Alex

I am getting a build up of black mold on the inside of the rinseaid compartment and all plastic pieces. Even in the bottom of the utensil basket. This has been happening for the last two months. Once I clean it, it comes back. The dishwasher goes on once a day fully loaded. hope you can help me because its gross. Thank You !


The first problem I believe you have is your hot water entering the unit is NOT hot enough. Turn up the temperature setting on your hot water heater. The water in your pipes should come out around 120 degrees Fahrenheit. That should be hot enough ... Gaggenau GI966-760 Built-in Dishwasher

Our 2 month old Frigidaire FGHD2433KF1 dishwasher is producing a very strong foul odor. It is not connected to a garbage disposal and we only see a small amount of water in the bottom of tub when the dishwasher is off. When I use the sanitize cycle, it seems that the smell is even more intense, not sure if that could be do to a small amount of steam escaping on the highest setting ? We have no idea what to check any suggestions would be much appreciated


Do you have it connected to an air gap? If not this can allow the water to drain back into the dishwasher and will sometimes have food particles in it making it stink. ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher Odor Our dishwasher leaves dishes and glassware with a sulfer odor after the wash cycle. We have run vinegar through it, use jet dry, and use 1 tablespoon of dry detergent. All suggestions made by the "customer support". None of these have led to a permanent solution. We're about ready to "kick this to the curb". Any suggestions? I've checked filters and there doesn't appear to be any standing water. We have city water and there isn't an odor when you drink it.


I would disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and drain the water out into a pot -- just to make sure there's nothing in the hose that can't get out. Check the sink trap too to make sure it's not holding something. Run an empty dishwasher us ... Asko 24 in. D3250 Built-in Dishwasher

Occasionally, the error message changes to E8 or E1, but no matter what, I can't get it to work. Any ideas? When I start the machine, select any program and close the door after a short while the machine does not complete the wash cycle and I get the following message either: E1 or E2 will appear in the control panel Any suggestions Dave M

My Kitchenaid dishwasher (model KUDS02SRSS0) keeps burning out my dispenser. First I replaced the dispenser, then I replaced the control board and dispenser, it worked for two weeks and now I have a melted solenoid again in my dispenser. I've measured voltage to the solenoid and it is getting 110V through the entire diagnostic cycle. This is wrong. It should only get power at some point during the cycle to open the dispenser. It appears the control board has failed again and in the same wa

My Hotpoint diswasher suddenly stopped working last night. It seems like it has no power to it, as the motor or pump does not seem to come on at all. Obviously when I get home from work, I will check the obvious first - making sure it has power to it, connections are secure etc. (I had a wire break before) If it does have power, I would assume checking the door switch and timer is next. Any suggestions, and any suggestions for checking the door switch and timer??


Sounds like your on the right track. I would use an ohmeter to check the resistance of the door switch by placing the meter probes on each side of the switch. Test while opened and closed position. Same with timer ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

When starting my Bauknecht GSFP 5586 dishwasher the program is set for rinsing and the start light flashes two blinks, then again two blink etc. I cannot get the program to change. When I hold the Start button for 2 seconds, the progress light flashes at END for a moment then reverts back to the double blink sequence. I have checked the filter and it is well seated and clean. What can I do to start the program selection again?

Odor We have had our electrolux dishwasher for a year, recently we are experincing a very strong rancid odor inthe dishwasher and around the sink. I have used disposal cleaners, but it does not appear to correct the problem, is there something I need to be looking for internally? (I have looked inside the trap and there is sitting water but nothing within the filter that would warrant this smell.

FDW60 Fault Hi, I have exactly the same problem. My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!


Welcome to FixYa,Based on your description... I`d suspect a plugged or really dirty wash pump. It could ultimately be a worn out wash impeller/chopper assembly, but I'd certainly try my suggestions before considering that. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Sporadic pressure The pressure on my washer cuts in and out continuously, two seconds of power followed by two seconds of nothing. I have tried to take the lance off to see if it is blocked, but it seems to be stuck fast. Any help would be welcome, thanks in advance.

My Viking dishwasher won't fill with water. The motor seems to be running but no water enters the chamber. It's Sunday morning so I'm not able to get a repair person here. I got a response that said ''The ventilators are blocked. Turn it off and have the motor checked'' i was hoping for instructions on how to unblock the ventilators or clean it out. I have a house full of people for the weekend and would love to get this thing back up before Monday when a repair person could come. Any suggestion
