Dishwasher Repair I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that came with the house. The house and washer are probably about seven years old. It woked fine for the first few months but now, when I turn it on to wash it fills with water but then it will not go into wash cycle (i.e. there is no water sent into the dish compartment). It will go through every cycle by filling and emptying through wash and rinse but no water goes into the dish compartment. Is there a pump that is perhaps not working? How is th

Frigidaire fdb1500lsfo built in dishwasher. Have had for maybe 3 years. I push the start button, and it starts like usual, filling the tub with water. After filling, it will not do anything for about 5 mins, where then it drains. It seems to go through the whole wash cycle, but after it has pumped the water out. Dishwasher steams all of the dishes, but there is no water in it to wash them with.

Dishwasher filling up and over flowing. switch to turn on pump comes on late or when I manually put pressure on drain. Have hard water and found much scale. could sensor/float scale cause this? Thinking about filling with white vinegar and letting sit so I don't have to take apart. Thoughts?


Take a packet of unsweetened lemonade any brand and run it through a cycle. This will clean all the scale and calcium from the pump and spray arm to improve the circulation of water in the machine. ... Asko Dishwashers

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

I bought this dishwasher 5 years ago and was kept in the box until last month. I installed it, turned on the water and no water is being pumped into the unit from the water release valve in the dishwasher. I then checked all the cycles and everything works except for the pump. Then I checked to see if any power/volts was going to the pump and there is none. Could it be a wiring problem or could it be the circuit board?? please help. thanks


You will have to check all the connections visually. Since you know how to use a meter, see where the current stops. See if there is current coming from the control board to the pump. the water inlet solenoid valve should "free flow" water into the m ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher

GE GHDA485N 10CS Dishwasher that has standing water in the bottom after the cycle completes. I pulled it out and reconnected power and ran a rinse cycle. I could see that water was pumping out the clear drain pipe but there was still about an inch of standing water in the bottom. Any thoughts as to what part has failed. Does the system use a water level switch or a timed drain cycle to determine when the water has pumped out. If it is a timed cycle could a slow drain cause the problem. Thank you

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle). We also removed the hose from the machine as it had split and replaced it and we had the machine tilted on it's side. the dial still clicks round but it sounds like the pump is going and it doesn't seem to be filling with water.

I have a Bosch integrated dishwater that is just over 2 years old. It has suddenly stopped working and the tray at the bottom is not emptying, although you can still hear a buzzing sound. The cycle does not go beyond this point. I have emptied the tray of water and the dishwasher will start again, and pump water in, but it then stops, as though it is not able to pump water out. Does anyone know what this is? Could it be the pump? A blockage?

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

Miele dishwasher makes grinding noise when turned on, there is a light on front next to inlet/drain. So I poured some boiling water into the dishwasher and then left it turned on and could feel the boiling water coming out of the drain hose so I am assuming it is an inlet problem, as it will drain but will not fill or otherwise work.There are a few small cracks in the outer hose of he inlet hose just below the grey box thing, could that be enough to cause the problem?

We have a Whirlpool ADP962 Dishwasher that will not fill. I replaced the inlet hose as I thought the solenoid was faulty. It's gone a step further and now sounds like it fills (continuously) however it soon drains without any water entering the dishwashing compartment (this remains dry). I believe this issue was caused by running it through a cycle without the water mains turned on. Any ideas?


Hi.When you say inlet hose I think you are referring to the inlet valve, which has a built in solenoid. The inlet hose is only the rubber hose connected to valve and faucet.Rather than the hose the problem is likely overfill d ... Whirlpool 24 in. DP840D Free-standing Dishwasher

There is problem with the drainage from my guess. There is waste water left after turning it on, and it doesn't go away. However, hot steam and water are running properly. I found a guy who fix the pump, but that guy says it's not because of the pump itself.
