My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.


Hi,\015\012\015\012First off, sorry to hear that you replaced the control board for nothing..in hindsight. So if I understand what you're saying is this, You cannot select any cycles and the unit won't start...because the start button is ... Dishwashers

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

In our KitchenAid dishwasher, there is often a puddle of standing water in the bottom of the washer after the cycle has finished. It never seems to drain and I have to "bail" it out. Is there any easy fix for this problem?

Hello there, I have a Bosch Logixx dishwasher which I purchased just over 2 years ago. My upper dishwasher tray is not fitting properly into the hose pipe holes on the inside of the back wall of the dishwasher. It has a movable plastic mechanism sort of fitting which is dropping off everytime I open the tray to keep the utensils and unable to close it fully until I re-adjust the plastic to fit into the holes proeperly and then it works. I am not sure how to fix the problem, do I need an En

My soap cap remains in the closed position at all times. The clasp mechanism works fine, if I cycle through with the door open I can see and hear the catch release when it should. But the door remains closed at all times. I leave it open to run, and sometimes it's closed when the wash cycle finishes! Is there an easy way to take the cap off and clean it? Or do I need to WD-40 around it?


There is a little spring in there that flips the door open, just take the screws off of the side of the door, you'll see the broken spring by the door, make sure power is off to dishwasher ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

I have a GE Potscrubber 1230 dishwasher and the closing latch seems to close properly but unless I jam a piece of folded cardboard under the latch when it is closed, the unit will not run through cycles properly. Is there a down-loadable diagram that would show how to disassemble this mechanism and show how this works? I wish to attempt to repair. Thanks

The door won't close. The latch seems jammed. I have tried setting and releasing the child lock inside the handle. The problem seems to be with the latch itself. From inside the door, I can see the tongue the clips into the latch, but it seems stuck. I can't get it to move, even with gentle force.

Kenmore Elite I replaced most of my appliances 3 years ago with Kenmore Elite and I've had problems intermittently while the appliances were under warranty, but when the repair person arrives, no problem is detected. Once the appliance is no longer under warranty, the problem becomes persistent. At one point when I explained the difficulty, the technical support person said something to the effect of, "Oh that's an easy one to fix. All you need to do is...Oh wait, the warranty expired on the 3rd


Hmm, I'll start at the top :->. Well, first thing is that Kenmore doesn't manufacture any appliances. The only thing Sears has is the name recognition, therefore, they have GE, LG, Whirlpool, and others to make appliances for them and Kenmore s ...

We have had a problem with our dishwasher since "winterizing" it to close the cottage for the winter. We were told to run it for a few minutes with antifreeze in it and then turn off and let it overwinter with the antifreeze in it. Now the machine leaves everything coated with a white film, even though we have a water softener and use jetdry. How can we fix this and is this the proper way to winterize our dishwasher if we close down our cottage and turn off the heat for the winter?

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series dishwasher that is 4 years old. Model No. GLD2440RES1. The problem is that there is a high pitched whine and a "rattatt" sound from the pump/motor when the d/w is running. Not hearing this sound when the d/w is draining. Sound seems to be getting louder. What is the issue and how would I fix the problem. Thank you!


Hello. That sound is coming from the dishwasher's motor. This is a costly repair and honestly not worth doing on a four year old dishwasher. If you do choose a repair, you can purchase a motor for your model at this link ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

I have a KitchenAid drawer dishwasher model kudd01dppa and it has a mind of its own starting and stopping in the middle of the night/day and chiming all different beeps and sounds like its computer is glitching out. We had a service person out and they changed the main computer board and it seemed to fix it for a few days then started again. They gave up. They also tried some sort of reset or reboot but nothing has fixed this intermitten but long term problem. Any ideas?


"it seemed to fix it for a few days then started again" (sic) OK, well if this is so, then in my experience you are getting some, sort of Power Bourne Spike, Surge, or Transient, problem. If there is nothing else it can possibly be. Use a Pow ... Dishwashers
