Plumber installed new garbage disposal without removing plug. Dishwasher ran all night without draining. I removed plug and it drained but now the dishwasher doesn't have water coming out of sprays. Is the motor burned out?


Spray's are most likely clogged with food debris,carefully use a small nail or similar object to clean them out. ... Viking 24 in. Professional Series VUD040 Stainless Steel (Premium) Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers

My kenmore 16482 dishwasher was noisy and not cleaning very well. I removed the large motor underneath and found what looks like the plastic pieces that are on the electric motor shredded and worn and possibly some worn plastic in what im guessing is the pump housing. can these parts be serviced separate from the motor and where can i get them? thanks in advance

I have a Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB4100. Are there directions for removing the cleaning equipment in the bottom of the dishwasher? I do have the manual and there are no instructions to do this. I am getting scummy buildup around the drain and suspect it needs a good thorough cleaning that I can't do without taking it apart. I have tried to clean away the "gook" but it reappears after a few washes and I can't reach the back. Thank you, Cara

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

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?


Homeowner with this model:\012I believe you would need to take the door loose by removing the screw on each side of the door near the bottom on the outside. \012\012I would recommend removing the unit whole instead. That way you don't n ... GE Dishwashers

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

Hello, my Bosch Classixx dishwasher SGS43E42EU/21 has me stumped. It starts by taking in water but when "filled" pumps out for a couple of seconds then refills for say 10 seconds more before another 2 or 3 seconds of pumping out. This cycle continues for ages without starting to wash. I've tried various things: - checked the Auto Stop valve isn't being activated by leakage (removing the polystyrene float and bottom tray makes no difference - there's no leak) - the valve seems to operate it

How do I remove the top rack from our Kenmore built-in dishwasher? It looks like it has a plastic clip at the end of each rail that if not there would allow the rack to simply roll out. How do I take those clips out without breaking them and still be able to re-insert them?


Believe it or not you should be able to just push the clip ion the midle it will unsnap, when it it will basically unlock and allow you to slide it off, simply reverse the stepes to put it back on ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Dishwasher Model #110703412 leaks, likely around the motor shaft. Are there motor shafts seals and how are they replaced? Does the motor assembly remove through the tub or does it require being removed from the bottom? Do you have to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet to do this job?

The dishwasher started making horrendous noises. I removed the bottom panel and narrowed the noise down to the motor (the noise starts and stops when the motor kicks on and off). How do I remove the motor to visually check it out? I thought I had all of the screws removed, but it feels like something is still holding it in place. thanks My model number is GSD4060N10SS (GE Dishwasher)

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWW dishwasher that makes a lot of noise from the motor at the end of the drain cycle. When there is water in the dishwasher it doesn't make any noise and washes well. This url (http://www.applianceaid.com/maytag-dish-noise.html) describes my problem exactly but I can't remove this part. I have unscrewed the 3 screws keeping it in place but it seems to be still attached to the motor. How can I remove it?

I am trying to replace the GUIDE RAIL BRACKET ASM on my GE dishwasher (model no. GSM1800JWW). How do I either: (a) remove the old brackets, and then install the new ones; or (b) remove the rollers from my new brackets, so that I could slip these rollers onto the old brackets still in the dishwasher, saving the trouble of removing the old brackets in the first place? Either solution would be acceptable, but right now I can't figure out how to do either one without breaking something. Thank you v


Be ready for both . because if they break you can still replace it. but (a) is to me the better choice. let me know how you made out and send me a 4 thumbs post if it works out ... Dishwashers

The dishwasher will not drain. The motor hums. We have tried to remove the central unit inside the dishwasher, but cannot remove the inner black disk --it has a bolt, but we cannot get a good grip to twist it out. We suspect that under the mesh covering is a lot of gunk that needs to be cleaned out.

ASKO 1555 dishwasher won't run. The anti flood device motor won't stop running but we've removed all the water. All the lights on the front panel blink in unison and when we hold down the start/cancel button on the front, nothing resets. We can't run our dishwasher. We've tried disconnecting power and resetting the circuit breaker but the churning motor won't stop.
