Having problems with your GE Hotpoint HDA3500N Dishwasher ?

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water prior to washing.


Answers :

Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150.

Zanussi DW908 dishwasher will not fill with water, when filled manually completes cycle untill fill time again. when filled continues on until water needed again. Only cold supply to machine.

My dishwasher is only 2 years old. My small coffee shop is in an area where we have large quantities of lime. At this point in time the repair people have been out two times and this is not fixed. There appears to be no water being pumped into the dishwasher where it will be heated prior to washing. Also the temp gauge is not working all the time. With no water entering, the small amount of water in there is rising in temperature quickly if the gauge is working. The technician that have be

Kenmore Elite Stainless Steel 24 inch tall Model 66577963K701. The heating element works for "heated dry" but not for "Hi Temperature" wash. It used to do so and when I opened the door a nice blast of steam would come out. My hot water tank is a great distance from the washer so we usually run the hot water tap in the sink for a bit until hot water comes... but the heating coil no longer kicks in on any of the cycles (Smart Wash / Normal Wash ).

Glasses have a film after washing complete. No food particles, just heavy film. I suspect dishes are the same, but doesn't show as much. Water temperature entering washer is 130 degrees.

Smeg Dishwasher DWD 63.1 SS, not heating; I have Smeg dishwasher that is sticking in its cycle (wash phase), water was cold, so I assumed the element had failed (or tank termostat), so I have replaced both element and tank thermostat in turn.

After a power outage, that occured while the dishwasher was running, the lights come on and there is a high pitched noise. Then all the lights go off and the motor sounds like it is starting. However there is no water and the heating elemant comes on. The lights on the front; china/crystal, normal wash, clean and heated dry, all come on as if the computer is confused and trying to run them all simultaneously.

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

My Omega Eurolux Dishwasher (mode: DW211P/1) won't stop cycling, It sems to get stuck during the wash cycle and continues for hours, until I turn it off. If I turn the dial to rinse it rinses fine. It doesn't seem to heat the water at all, there is no steam when I open the door. I have put a new heating element in, but this doesn't seem to be heating up at all. When I open the door mid wash cycle the element is cold to touch.

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

Turns on, the entire cycle runs, but no water pumps through the sprayer. There is water present on the bottom....and I can here the water pumping in at the beginning of the cyle....but the dishes are not being 'washed' by the sprayers. I have disassembled and cleaned the entire inside and sprayers to no avail. Im thinking its a pump/motor issue but Im not sure because the sprayers spin, the heat comes on, the detergent dispenses....but no water is being sprayed. Thanks.

I have a Fisher & Paykel 913T soft touch dishwasher. On all types of washes when the wash cycle starts there is no 230 volts on the element & after 5 minutes the wash cycle finishes & then goes onto to the next cycle. None of the wash or rinse cycles heat the water but on the dry cycle their is 230 volts onto the element & dries the dishes OK. Is my problem the power supply PCB or could it be the Controller PCB?

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?
