Kenmore 665.16529000 When we put the dial to pots and pans the diswasher fills up and cycles through, when the dials moves to normal wash, it fills up and cycles through again. When the dial gets to light wsh we can hear the motor running but nothing is happening, but the soap door opens soon after.

I have an Asko DW1875 dishwasher (10yrs old) which has just recently started having problems. The initial symptom was that during a washing cycle, unit showed '1' and inside became very hot (melting some plastic cups/plates in unit). On further investigation (with diagnostic mode), the dishwasher is filling and draining with no problem. When circulation pump runs there is barely any water pressure in blades (just dribbles out) and water leaks into undertray via a plastic white tab near front (v

I have a GE 24 in. ZBD0710KSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher. We turned it on last night and this morning found it on, hot, and making beeping noises. It seemed to have gotten stuck in the dry cycle. I have turned the breaker off. The inside did get hot, because a small aluminum cup turned from aluminum color to black. What should I check?

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t

I have a frigidaire dishwasher 4000 series aqua surge with speed clean. The small spray arm on the ceiling of the washer came off. I found it sitting on top of some cups in the top basket. There is a loose part inside the retainer in the ceiling that moves back into the retainer when I try to put the spray arm back on. How do I fix this and how do I get the top basket out to work on it?

My Kenmore Elite UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people
