Having problems with your Kelvinator MDP531RF Dishwasher ?

Hi, I get a problem reading " E4". I have now switched the machine off and on again, but still it says the same. Incidentally the machine has already pumped the water out, so the 'overfill" is actually not supposed to be a problem. It is KELVINATOR EXTREME CLEAN DISHWASHER, model KD14SS. Please help, how am I to get rid of this problem, I really do not have the time nor the money to get outside help! Anita Kleynhans

Hi I am in an emergency situation with an ikea whirlpool dishwasher. I have no idea what model it is since it's built in and I can't find the manual in my rental apartment. The machine works normally until the part where it's supposed to pump the water out after rinsing. At this point it starts to beep, once, and then 3 times. On and on and on. If I open it, there is water stagnated there. If I try to turn it off and back in, it will go through a whole new program and then I get the same problem

I have a Blanco Dishwasher Model BFDWC65X. It appears that the thermostat may be faulty as the water gets extremely hot on cycle 3 which is supposed to operate at 45 degrees centigrade. When I open the door mid-cycle, clouds of steam emerge and the whole dishwasher smells hot - almost a burning smell. I have found an online source for a replacement thermostat, but would like to know how difficult a job it will be to replace the thermostat. Also where can I find a manual that details where the th

Water from my disposal backs up into my hotpoint ($300-model) dishwasher. The dishwasher works fine otherwise. Is there a one way valve in the diswasher that is suppose to prevent reverse flow and/or is there other dishwasher motor problems which could cause this. Actually the Hotpoint Model number is HDA3600N00BB but this website did not recognize that model number so I put in the closest model number closest to mine.


If it's what I think, it's a simple fix. Does your dishwasher drain run along the floor of the cabinet, then up to the disposal? (my guess is yes). There should be an "air gap" between the disposal and dishwasher, this means when it comes out of th ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3400G Built-in Dishwasher

Our dishwasher won't start (model number 665.16049401). We had a similar problem last summer and a repairman came and fixed it. The problem was that the water level had gotten too low and so the machine locked itself off. This made sense as, at the time, I remembered filling the pool, running laundry and someone taking a shower all at the same time that I turned the dishwasher on. I am guessing this is the same thing that has happened now. The repairman put in a code and the machine worked. Can

My Bosch dishwasher, model SHE58C did not completely drain. We were eventually able to use the cancel cycle/drain procedure to get the machine mostly drained, but now all the lights are lit on the panel, and the count down display is 11. I haven't figured out how to reset. I have tried to hit "Cancel drain" and turn on the machine to get into diagnostic mode, but I can't figure out what the codes & light combinations mean because my model is not in any of the online sources I've found


I have managed to pick up typical diagnostic error codes for a bosch dishwasher - these are\015\012\015\0120 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault\015\0121 = Aqua Se ... Bosch Evolution 800 SHE58C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

My kitchen aid dishwasher will not start I replaced the interface control board thinking that was the obvious problem. When you go to set the dishwasher to start some of the settings don't always light up then when you push the start button the lights will flash then start but it's not flashing and won't start. I get lucky once in a while and get it to flash then start. I don't know where else to look. I don't want to start replacing parts one at a time till I get lucky. My model # is KUDIO1F

In other words water is pumping into the dishwasher but it's like there is no pressure behind it to force it through the holes in the propellers so it's just kind of dumping water out as opposed to having any forced pressure.
