WE MOVED IN OUR HOME 17 YEARS AGO. THE GE POT SCRUBBER DISHWASHER HAS ALWAYS WORKED VERY WELL. RECENTLY IT STARTED TO LEAK UPON USE. FIRST OUT OF THE BOTTOM IN FRONT, ALL OVER MY FLOOR AND THEN IT STARTED TO LEAK THROUGH THE FLOOR AND I CAN SEE IT DRIPPING FROM THE CEILING IN OUR BASEMENT ? SHOULD WE GET IT FIXED OR WOULD THAT BE TOO EXPENSIVE?


If your dishwaher is 17 years old I would say it probably should be replaced. ... GE Dishwashers

Carlton Cs1w. Hi I have a Carlton slimline dishwasher. No problem with filling, heating and emptying. But if I set it to full programme it sticks. Starting with pan setting and letting run right through programme it just keeps sticking. On last programme timer moves ok for first 10 or so minutes then gets no further. Tried different settings, checked everything I can think of and cleaned added salt etc. Got given. Last owner only used a few times, moved house and no room for it. But was sitting

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem


Not sure what you mean by a "del" level, but as far a drying issues:\015\012\015\012LG chose to use a very energy efficient drying method which relies on the residual heat of the dishes to help dry them rather than many manufacturer ... LG LDF6810 Built-in Dishwasher

Dub750x leaks My Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus Series Model DUB750XB-0 dishwasher produces a small puddle of water on tile floor in front of unit, but it doesn't seem to be coming from underneath it as tile/grout right in front of it aren't wet. This happens hours after the dishwasher has been run, usually at night, whether on Air Dry or Heat Dry setting. This began occurring recently after years of use without the problem. Sometimes it occurs more than once after washing/unloading. Coul

I have a Bauknecht dishwasher GS 835 S purchased in 1986. Since moving it while having kitchen refit there are two small leaks. One is from the hose that goes into the bottom of the machine towards the front, and the other is a drip that comes down between the front facia panel and the machine door. Possibly the door seal is slightly perished? I do not want to pay the earth for callout charges etc; if spares are not available. If they are where can I get them, and will they be very costly. I

I have a Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher and I'm wondering if there's a way to put a panel on it to make it look like and integrated dishwasher. It would need some way of the panel moving to start the dishwasher because the controls are located on the front. I plan on putting it in an Ikea Akurum that is 24" deep. The dishwasher is 22-9/10 deep, so that looks like it would leave some space for the dishwasher to sit back in the cabinet so the door panel could be flush with the cabinet. I'm no

Hello, bought an Hanseatic DW12/BFE in Germany approx. 5 years ago and moved with it to Sweden. Now one of the springs (assisting the front lock opening/closing) did break. I've tried to get a new one via a specialised shop dealing with home machines but withour success. They can only support with spare parts out of their ordinary supply chain. Can you help me? Do you have partners in Sweden or can you send me one or two springs? Thanks in advance for your reply, Petra

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?


The top arm snaps into place. Simply unscrew the retaining clip from the ceiling of the washer. Inside of there, you will find a small white plastic clip. Make sure the two prongs are pointed down and poking out through the hole in the bottom of the ... Frigidaire PLD4555RFC Dishwasher

Ok, after a year, I've figured out the problem. I changed a bunch of parts, but never until now figured out that what it is doing is, water is running out the hole behind the door, where the overflow dripguard sits, if the front three panels are on. when those panels are on, water, just before position 6, pours down that plastic dripguard piece, into the big tray. eventually the tray overflows. when you take off the panels, then water just pours onto the floor. if you open the DW, the basin is t

My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...

GE Potscrubber 650 Dishwasher, 13 years old. We want to take the front lower panel off to move the motor fan by hand, as you described for glideston'es post, but we can't figure out how to get the panel off. A repairman told us to remove the three screws at the top of the lower panel -- but they are too close to the upper door panel. The space between the two panels is not big enough to fit a screwdriver or any other tool we can think of. How do we remove the lower panel?

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

My dishwasher is leaking from underneath, front left as you look at it. If i go underneath it, there appears to be a seal on the outside (it does not appear to be the one that runs along the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher) that has come away at one point. Do you know a) how to get the front panel off (the bit that makes it look built in),b) how can i get another one of these seals. I assume if i get one we can just fit it into place.

The best way to solve this is to remove the door and re-install it at the desired height. Last resort - cut jambs off, raise the threshold. cut the top off the door, reblock it and move it up in the jamb. Yes, I have done this before, when there was ... Dishwashers

Thermal fuse Dishwasher konked out mid-cycle and now no power to control pad. We've already had the thermal fuse replaced once (machine is only 2 years old!) and this appears to be the same issue. I tried to open the front and I think I can see where it is but not sure how to get it out and replace it AGAIN. I wasn't able to get the inside panel completely apart from the front of the unit so I was somewhat limited. I'd rather save the service charge if I can and there's n
