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.


Hi Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doe ... Fisher and Paykel Dishwashers

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

New SHE4AM16UC, professionally installed eight months ago. Worked fine with very light usage until now. Dishwasher starts normally but stops and signals "clean" after less than five minutes on any cycle. One inch of water in bottom that (I think) drains when a new cycle starts. Soap tablets are not ejected from compartment.

The insultation on the bottom of the door is wet. My repairman said water is getting behind the soap dispenser and the rubber gasket around the dispenser is hard. The dishwasher is only 4 years old. Is this possible. The insulation at the bottom of the door is wet. Oddly, this is an intermittant problem. The past two days, with a small load of dishes, there was no leak. Help!!

NEFF S4443 top spray bar not rotating, no water. Bottom spray bar rotates and sprays water. Checked and replaced fine/course mesh filters. Will pump to empty and refill on pre-wash (rinse). Seems the pump may have two outlets one feeding the bottom spay bar (nearest from of machine) and one just behind which feeds the upper spray bar. Running without spar bars attached (including mechanism feeding to bar, water is only being forced out of the from outlet. Any ideas before I start taking it apart

My dishwasher has stopped cleaning plates properly. It makes everything wet but at the end of the cycle the detergent block is half dissolved at the bottom. I have just run a cycle and opened the door during this. The bottom is full of soap suds and water and the top spray bar is dripping water after I open the door but when I close and then reopen a few secs later the top spray bar has definetly not rotated. The water is also not hot, this dishwasher is a cold fed only machine so I guess the el

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.17462300) is not spraying the water from the basin in the bottom up through the rest of the dishwasher. The basin fills with water, then just makes a humming noise and appears to splash a little of the water around the very bottom of the dishwasher. When we cancel the cycle, it does drain out the water from the basin. I cleaned all the gunk and debris out of the basin in the bottom, but it didn't make any difference.

Subject is Bosch dishwasher SHU6800. There is a soap residue left on dishes. Residue is not visible. Using two glasses taken from a recently completed wash cycle I rinsed one under tap water and then filled glass with tap water. The second was just filled with tap water. There is noticeable soap bubbling and foam in the second glass. Starting the 10 min rinse/hold cycle following completion of a full 60 min wash cycle results in considerble soap foam in the bottom of the tub. Have tried thr

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

Dishwasher leaking Our dishwasher all of a sudden started leaking. I've taken the front panel off the door and can see exactly where. It's not a hole or anything...it's at the front, left edge of the basin, the bottom left corner at the front. It seems that right after it fills with water, it starts to leak once water is moving around inside and washing cycle starts. It is as if big waves are being pushed to the front left corner and over the lip of the basin. I don't think the water level is to

My trusty Bosch s510 Dishwasher which has been going strong for about 17 years (at least) has just decided not to empty itself. I noticed the bottom was full of water after a wash. I emptied all the water out by hand and presuming there is a blockage in the drain tried using a plunger to unblock it. I have since put it through another cycle and half way through water started leaking out of the front. At the end of the cycle the bottom of the dishwasher was again full of hot 'soapy' water.

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens. However, the soap will just run down the inside of the door and pool on th

The upper rack doesn't appear to be getting any water, as bowls and glasses are still dirty after being washed. It appears as though water would spray from the bottom, through a "nozzle" in the middle of the lower rack, then go to an arm located underneath the upper rack. I haven't noticed any obstructions in this path that would inhibit the water from spraying. Any suggestions (outsid

The is for the model: DDW1899WP. The cycle is getting stuck in the first phase and the soap container is not opening. When I open the soap contain, water has seeped in because the soap is moist and hard rather than loose and powdered. In addition, water is pooling int he bottom of the dishwasher. I tried adding more rinse aid because that has solved the problem in the past but it is still persisting.

I have an Indesit IDL 42 dishwasher. It has entered a state in which it behaves like this: as soon as I turn it on, it starts swishing the water around (it doesn't pump it out) and it does that regardless of whether I press any buttons (I have tried Start, Reset, turning the program knob, no difference at all). When I open it in the middle of this cycle, the water drips, and there is plenty of water (about 1 in) at the bottom. I have checked the filter, it is clean. Can you please help?

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that there is no problem in the plumbing but more with the pump. I even use the wt/dry vac and removed water and ran it but still comes back with water at the bottom. also the dishes smell like soap. Help!!!


The plumber did not make an air gap in the dishwasher drain hose when he reattached it to the new disposal. Look under your sink, does the hose (attached to the disposal) go down and through the cabinet? If so, that is definitely the issue. Simple ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher
