Kenmore 17362 dishwasher was making a bad noise and now the motor seems to be locked up. I might have already un-jammed the motor by removing the cover on the bottom (inside), and turning the knife impeller on the outside of the screen, but I can see lint type material in the hole on the other side of the impeller. Hard to explain, but it is in the hole in the center of the unit and there is a screen like the knife impeller has behind it. I could clean this lint if I could get the door off. How

I have Frigidaire model FDB130RGS3. This seems like a pretty cheap dishwasher that is provided by my management company. This is third dishwasher I've had in this apartment. The others have all broken. Now this one, which is less than 6 months old, seems to have broken. It does not clean the dishes. I removed the round plastic cover in the base of the dishwasher and the bottom of the dishwasher (sorry don't know how else to describe this) is filled with dirty water. I drained the water and tried

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer. None

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

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. Also in the bottom of the dishwasher, under the screen, on the edge of the water, there is a lot of grit, like sand. Thanks.

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

My KichenAid KUDS011 has functioned well until this morning. When I push any of the buttons on the keypad, nothing happens. I noticed there is still water in the bottom of the dishwasher from the last dish washing. Also, I've heard there is a screen or similar part in the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned occasionally. I haven't figured out how to remove the bottom center of the dishwasher to access this for cleaning.

I have an shx65905uc bosch dishwasher that runs and works except for that there is not enough water pressure to rotate the top wand or operate the top sprinkler. The bottom wand does have water and turn and does the top but it is not enough to turn it. If i remove the bottom wand and plug it off then the top will work properly. I have cleaned all screens and removed the plate to access the pump and all seems fine. Any Thoughts

GU2400 whirlpool gold quiet partner iii. Won't clean dishes. Dishes don't get wet. Water seems to accumulate at the bottom but no spraying sound during cycle.

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7 years old. The Model # is 665-16462300. It works beautifully, except that about every 2 months the spray flow intensity ( and the cleanliness of the dishes) drops significantly. The cause is the metal screen located just upstream from the sump is clogged with food particles. I have taken apart the dishwasher several times to remove, clean and replace the screen. This fix works for about 2 months, then another cleaning is required, even though we h

A glass shattered in a thousand pieces in the dishwasher. I cleaned and vacuumed everything except the very bottom that I can't get to. I took out 8 screws, removing the round rotator piece at the bottom, but that still doesn't get me into the very bottom where I'm certain there is still glass. Question #1 - Will leaving the glass down there hurt anything? Question #2 - If yes, how do I get the rest of the part off without damaging it? I have a 10+ yr old Model DU920QWDB3 Thank y


The glass should just go down the drain from there. I doubt any piece that made it into there should damage anything as they are would have to be pretty small and as big as any food particle that could fit into there so you should be fine. If you rea ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

I have a GLD 4456R00CS dishwasher that is maybe 6 months old. It seems to cycle properly, but has never really cleaned the dishes. This is the worst dishwasher we've ever had (over 25 years) and I'm ready to take it to the street. I've cleaned the screen (was already clean), checked the spray bars for clogs (removed, sprayed water through it, and replaced), and looked for any other obvious problem.
