Having problems with your Frigidaire GLD2445RF Built-in Dishwasher ?

Black residue that looks like mold/mildew left in dishwasher. Wipes out but next cycle it returns. Dishes are clean however. Have found larger pieces of what looks like a thin rubbery material. Residue almost feels rubbery and rolls off fingers.


Answers :

What u need to do is run a quart of white vinegar through the whole wash cycle, use the longest cycle and the hottest water temp available, this will kill the mold, also make sure all food is rinsed off the dishes before u wash them, then the problem will not come back.
The rubber could have come from a dish or could be the seal that goes around the dishwasher door to keep the water in. Look around the diswasher to see, could also be oring residue for the water line seals goiing through the augers that spin and clean the dishes

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

The door now drops hard when opening. In the past the door would drop slowly and was "not heavy" . I found a rubber piece on the floor just below the door. It looks like a rectangular washer . I am assuming the rubber piece helped slow down the drop of the door. Is this a correct assumption? Is this an easily repaired problem? Your help would be greatly appreciated

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in t

My kenmore 16482 dishwasher was noisy and not cleaning very well.

The dishwasher is not cleaning. It has left a residue all over the dishes especially colored plastic ware glasses. like it doesn't rinse but i have ran the extra rinse cycle and residue is still there. It has actually stained the dishes. Then ceramic dishes are not clean. And ones on the top rack feel like there is a coating on them that does not come off unless you rinse by hand.

I have a Bosch SHU8805UC/14 dishwasher. I took the front door panel off to install it better but ended up with two extra pieces that look like either part 935400 Door Guard, or 935526 Support. I cannot seem to find any place on the inside of the door where these pieces would fit. The dishwasher works fine but seems like it got noisier after I put it back together without these two parts. Can you help me locate the proper place for these 2 plastic parts?

I have a Kenmore 16919 dishwasher that recently is leaving black debris on dishes. I have found what to appears to be gasket material laying in the bottom of the tub and have found loose pieces on the door at the bottom, is this pieces of a failed gasket?


Yes, it sounds like it is time to have the Kenmore Service man over to reseal your dishwasher to keep that soapy water inside where it should stay. Like any rubber product, gaskets degrade over time, and exposure to caustic dish-cleaning products do ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed.

Hi, We have a Frigidaire dishwasher machine 1500 series with fully electronic control. It is a new unit, has been installed nearly 4 months ago. The other day, when I went to take the dishes out of it, I notice that the rubber gasket that seals the door had come off somehow. Along with it I saw, sitting on the bottom, two pieces that looked like part of the seal, but I didn't know where they came from. I put the rubber gasket back on, but now the pieces and now the dishwasher will leak when runn

I have model EIDW6305GS0. It is a little over a year old. There are small puddles of water under the door after running it but not every time. When I run my hand along the bottom edge I can feel a wet sponge like material between the outside and inside of the door. I assume a gasket or insultation material are leaking. Is this something I can fix myself. Thanks, Mary Herman [email protected]

I need to clear out broken glass from the gray pan underneath where the water drains to, but I need to take the twirling water sprayer off first to get to the next piece that looks like it is bolted down, and I cannot see how to remove the twirling sprayer part.

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher malfunction I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard 3 dishwasher. One day, I found it with a blinking green ?clean? light.
