Having problems with your Hoover Dishwashers ?

Cutlery basket melting at the bottom

\015 After completing the cycle the bottom of one section of the cutlery basket was distorted/melted. I thought it was a fork loaded the wrong way up and the prongs had gone through the bottom and touched the heating element. I tried again having checked that there was no cutlery protruding below the bottom of the cutlery basket and got the same results. I assume something is causing the temperature to rise locally - perhaps not enough water in the machine? The crockery seems to be being cleaned properley.Any ideas what is causing this?\015

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any p

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

I recently bought a table top model SKS 40e02GB/01 Type SE5P18 and have no complaints about its washing action but find the basket very difficult indeed. The prongs do not allow normal household china etc to be fitted. Also the cutlery basket does not fit anywhere without wobbling. the last model I had had a very efficient basket -why the change? Very disappointing. Any solution?

The cycle did not complete,the bottom spray arm (the tip) melted along with some plastic utensils (knife handles). Water come out of thee front door.When starting the washer again, the top and bottom spays do not turn.

Recently there's been a white coating on dishes. Has to be scrubbed off manually or soaked in a vinegar/water solution. I flushed out the rotating arms to be sure water flows thru & it does. Checked bottom filter & basket...both clean. Twice used "finish" cleaner for dishwashers in the scrub cycle as directed. Turned off during drying cycle and now there is water across the bottom of the dishwasher. Next? Thanks for any help. Rosemary

A rubber spatula was dropped to the bottom during the wash cycle. It melted a small hole in the bottom of the washer, and now it's leaking. Is there a way to patch the hole?


High-temperature silicon glue will probably work ok. Be sure to clean the hole with alcohol and allow 24 hours for the glue to cure. Epoxy would be a better seal, but it doesn't adhere to plastic very well. Hope this helps! ... Kenmore Dishwashers

My Bosch Classixx is not filling with water and no sound of the pump trying to work either. I fiddled around with it as it was not cleaning bowls properly on the bottom shelf - plates and cutlery were fine! Think I might have disturbed the round dome thing - is this the "float switch"?
