Having problems with your Kenmore 16079 Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Kitchenaid whose chopper assembly keeps getting clogged. I have aleady replaced it. It seems to be dust or maybe cat hair. (Yes we have a cat but rinse the dishes before putting them in.) I pull the chopper, clean the screen and its fine for about 4-6 weeks. Any ideas where this might be coming from or how to avoid the issue?

F2 Code Hey, I have a single drawer built in Fisher & Paykel dish drawer and today I pulled the spray arm, filter and large metal screen out to clean them as we have been starting to get a bit of stuff left behind after washing lately. That was all good After putting it all back in though I went to use the dishwasher and it stopped and came up with an F2 fault, I thought I may not have put the bits back in properly so pulled them out again and noticed that on the rotor that connects the motor to


Fault F2 means the rotor is not rotating. If you say some of the vanes have broken off, they could have been jamming it. This should spin freely with minimal force when installed correctly.

My dishwasher filter keeps getting plug up with large food particles. I take it apart and clean the screen. It works for a 2-3 -4 weeks before I have to do it again. There is a spinning fan on the screen. I'm wondering if this scrapper fan is working at all. If it was I think it would keep the small screen free from particles. The first thing that happens is the top cleaning arm stops working.' Thanks


Hi Judy. The only way to know for sure is to power up the fan independent of the machine and see if it still works. In the meantime, rinse and remove all debris from the dishes prior to placing them in the machine, including pots and pans. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

There is water in the bottom of the dishwasher, under the silver screen. Our glasses have been coming out filthy, while going in clean. I pulled the screen out. It has a lot of gunk in it.

I purchased a Honda Power Washer Model PWH2600 two weeks ago. I cleaned half my deck when the motor shut off unexpectantly, and now the cord will not pull to restart the engine. Any ideas what I can do for the cord to pull normally?


You just bought it so it is under warranty. I would take it back to the place you bought it for service. If the starter rope will not pull then the engine may be locked up. Check the oil level and make sure it is full before returning it for service. ... Honda Pressure Washers

GLD4050 DW won't pump out at any time during wash cycle. Removed lower arm, screen, etc. and washed and cleaned out everything. Removed drain hose and cleaned it out. Reinstalled and ran again. At no time during he cycle does the water pump out. HOWEVER, if I put my hand on the drain pump I can feel and hear the pump running as usual at the right times in the cycle. What else could be preventing the pump out? Thanks!


You could have a plugged pump itself or broken propellers as long as drain and screen are clean which looks like you already took care of that. ... Frigidaire GLD4050RHS Builtin Dishwasher
