Hi. I have a Danby DDW396W countertop dishwasher brand new yesterday. We unpacked it, installed it onto taps, loaded it with dishes, and turned it on. That's where everything went wrong. When you turn it on, the display shows P2 and when you press the program button to change it, nothing happens. When you push the start button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? I know I'm missing something simple, but what? Please help. Katherine

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover


If the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms. ...

My daughter accidentally turned on our GE GLDA690 dishwasher. I can't seem to cancel it out without actually starting the cycle. I opened the door before the cycle started but now it is sitting there beeping. The obvious thing is to load it with dishes and run it. But it is just the two of us and we don't really have a load full. Owner's manual is no help. Even turning off the circuit breaker will not stop this infernal beeping. How do I cancel it? Why isn't there a cancel button?

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective. I feel as if something is clogged with lime or calcium since a pan placed in there on bottom shelf still had

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Dirty dishes The dishwasher in the house I moved into is a very basic model of approximately 1-2 yrs. old. In every load that I wash there are some dishes that are not cleaned properly. I do not have access to a users manual and was wondering if I need to set the water temperature? Can anyone help?


You need to take the spray arm off of the bottom and get down to the filter: there's probably food trapped in the filter somewhere, not able to drain out and it keeps recycling onto the dishes at each cycle. Good luck! ... Sears 24 in. 14181 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishes in the upper rack no longer get cleaned. I've been using this dishwasher since 2004 (purchased new), and have not changed the way I loaded the dishes or the detergent. I called the Kitchen Aid help line, and the rep simply read the owner's manual to me (e.g., stand a glass of vinegar in the dishwasher and run a cycle), which did not address the problem. Any idea what I need to do? Thank you!
