Having problems with your Kenmore 13742 / 13744 / 13749 Built-in Dishwasher ?

The lock light will come on and can be shut off, the drain buttone will operate, yet no other controls on the diswasher work. Is there a sensor in the door for allowing the dishwasher to operate? Do you have any solutions for the problem that can be done by the average scew driver jockey. thanks

Use the Lock On to avoid unintended use of the

NOTE: The dishwasher door can be opened while the

controls are locked. However, the lock must be turned off

and the Start/Resume button pressed to resume the cycle.

To turn on the Lock

Press and hold HEATED DRY for 4 seconds. Lock On

light flashes 3 times.

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC14 dishwasher. The dishwasher is in a new home I just purchased. I tried to run the dishwasher on a normal cycle. However, when I push POWER and NORMAL CYCLE it makes a buzzing noise...and that's it. I opened the dishwasher and on the base of the dishwasher there was a screen that could be removed. I noticed that there was still some anti-freeze fluid in there (because the house was winterized). Could there be a simple solution to this problem?

Hello, we have a Fagor dishwasher mod.# FI-48 W, the problem we are having is that very little or no rinse solution is being applied during the rinse cycle.

My dishwasher barely cleans my dishes. i basically have to wash them before i place them into the dishwasher. also, once they come out there is usually residue of the dishwashing detergent especially on the top rack. another problem is that the wheels on the bottom are all warped and come off every time i use the machine. we have had this appliance not even for 5 years and it is driving me crazy! any advice/ solutions would be very helpful.

Dishwasher flooding Hi my Asko D1716 Super Cleaning System Dishwasher has started to have a flooding problem. When the cycle finished last night it seemed fine then in the morning the machine was full of water, I scooped out the water and by this evening the machine had flooded onto the kitchen floor. I tried other solutions I found on this website but they didn't suit my dishwasher as it doesn't have the appropriate buttons. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen

The upper rack side rail is loose where it attaches to the side wall of the dishwasher. It allows the upper rack to wobble. When the dishwasher is turned on, the force of the water pushes the rack forward so it detaches from the water supply and the arm does not rotate. The arm and connection are all clear and the arm is able to rotate, so those problems are not a factor. The wheels are in good condition. The left rail is a little loose; the right one is very loose. There must be a way t

Re: Thermador Dishwasher DWHD64E I love the dishwasher as it performs well and quietly. My problem is with the flip tines in the bottom rack. It was a great idea that allows for different configurations when loading dishes BUT the tines do not stay in place. I will load plates, for example, and as I add a plate in the established configuration, the tines move collapsing the entire row of plates. The repositioning notch does not hold up with the weight of the dishes. I prefer the old station
