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? Does the 230 volts to the element on dry cycle come from the same cicuit on the po

Whirlpool model GU2400XTPQ7 (Canada) plastic tub has discoloration from heat element......plastic directly under the element has dried out and cracked....it almost looks like it has been eaten away......now I have a leak! Virtually impossible to fix without replacing the entire plastic tub. Of course because the machine is four years old, the warranty has expired. Is this a common problem?

Hi I have a Zanussi ZDF501 dishwasher that stopped heating up intermittently. It got worse and I fitted a new heater and all was ok for a few months. Then the intermittent failure started again. Note that I tested the old heater and it is actually OK without a short circuit so I don't think it was the problem adn can be re-used. Could it be the thermostat or heat sensor? I am concerned it might be the PCB since the failure was intermittent. Thanks Dave


In my case, although the solder joints on the relay looked poor, improving them didn't help. I had to replace the relay. Fortunately, Maplin stock a compatible one, JM67X for 1.99. See ... Zanussi Dishwashers

Have a frigidaire dishwasher (model- PLD4375RFC0)about 2 years old. Set to run as we left to go out of town- when we came back all lights flashing including error- found a child's plastic bowl that had fallen to the bottom and had a melted spot as it was next to the heating element. Called support and were told to master restart- shut the power off for 15 minutes. Did and now flashing "27". Cannot find a code for that and neither could support without sending out a repairman. Any advice before

Dear sirs, I own a Kenmore dishwasher Model # 665.17039400. The clean light flashes 7 times and then repeats. It will not run, only the drain button will work. I changed the heating element from advise on another forum. This did not resolve the issue. Please advise promptly as my wife is going crazy without this appliance. Regards, R. Carmikel

I have a kitchenaid dishwasher model kuds24se with a problem. I MUST hit cancel before I hit start. Note that it doesn't matter how long it's been since the last cycle. It could be a few minutes or a day or more. I have to hit start to get a complete wash cycle. If I don't hit cancel, the washer goes through some sort of cycle and stops. It seems like a normal cycle but of course it is not because I don't hear any water and, upon completion, when I open the door there is heat but the soap dispen

Several people have posted this problem with the Frigidaire Ultra Quiet 111, but I have seen no solutions. When it is set to wash without extra heat, it cycles normally. But when the extra-heat wash and extra-heat rinse are selected, then it gets stuck first mid-wash at the 7 o'clock position, and if it is manually advanced then it gets stuck again during the rinse cycle just before the 9 o'clock drying position. Both the wash and rinse thermostats have been replaced without solving the problem.
