Having problems with your Kenmore 24 in. 17483 Built-in Dishwasher ?

This just happened to our Kenmore Elite -- just as I was about to go to bed I smelled fumes and went downstairs to our kitchen and saw thick smoke and smelled awful fumes. I will contact Sears/Whirlpool tomorrow -- but I am nervous about getting this repaired. What if this happens again? I was fortunate that I had not gone to sleep.

\015\012With a problem that indeed causes fire and burning, I ,myself wouldn't get it repaired, if i was in a position to repair or replace, i would replace with a nice new one, with a warranty, and, also, it is less likely to have a repeat of what has happened due to the newer technology. \015\012

I have an Electrolux dishwasher Model # EIDW6305GS1. I am getting an error "01", which means a leak is detected. It did this 5 months ago and the repair man replaced the pump and control panel. Now, after it happened again, I contacted Electrolux. The sent me a Leak Repair Kit, but with no instructions. I contacted Electrolux again and they said that they could not provide the installation guide. Can you help me located the installation guide or offer assistance?

The power is going to the dishwasher. The on off buttons work. No error codes. The salt light is lite (has been for 5 years) but now I get zero response when shutting the door (after selecting any of the 6 run options). There is no noise, no water, nothing happens. How do I repair this dishwasher so that it will run again?

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

My ASKO 1805 Dishwasher started to smell weird and white smoke came from it. I turned it off, but after I turned it on again it just keeps pumping water in and out, I can't get in contact with it (None of the indicator lights are working and it is not reacting to any commands) In addition the safety feauture that is supposed to stop all operation the moment the door is opened is no longer working. (i.e. even with the door open it is still pumping water) Does it sound like an expensive repair? (


Hello,\015\012\015\012Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description ( specifically the white smoke and smell ) I would suspect the control board is faulty. \015\012\015\012If the unit does not stop when the door is open can be r ... Asko 24 in. 1805 Built-in Dishwasher

We have two Jackson dishwashers - both broken - and have been told they can't be fixed because Jackson is out of business. True? Call 302-734-2222 or email at [email protected] We would LOVE to get them repaired. They do not run. They come on, warm up, but nothing happens.

Kenmore elite ultra wash 4-5 years old. Only a portion of our dishes are getting clean -- it seems like not all the jets are working for the top load. This happens even when there are just a few dishes on the bottom. Do I need to call for a repair?


Solution> Please on the sprayer spindles there are little holes that will buildup a soap substance around it. Take a wire and clean them or run vinegar through it on a regular watcher run and that will improve it but not all together fix it. ... Dishwashers

It is not pumping water into the spray arm to wash the dishes. I can get it to fill with water and drain the water, but when it fills and the cycle timer starts, nothing happens, and a slight burning smell occurs. Does this model have a reversable pump or a direct drive? I am thinking this is where i need to start.

My Viking dishwasher won't fill with water. The motor seems to be running but no water enters the chamber. It's Sunday morning so I'm not able to get a repair person here. I got a response that said ''The ventilators are blocked. Turn it off and have the motor checked'' i was hoping for instructions on how to unblock the ventilators or clean it out. I have a house full of people for the weekend and would love to get this thing back up before Monday when a repair person could come. Any suggestion

Smelly Dishwasher Hi I have a Baumatic bad6002 dishwasher. The smell that comes out of it is putrid and has been from day one. We rinse everything before it goes in, I have used dishwasher cleaners and hung smelly things in there to prevent the smell but it still stinks. I do not use cheap cleaners only finish or morning fresh. It gets turned on approx every 2-3 days and the dishes actually go mouldy before it gets turned on. I have had several dishwashers and this is by far the the most disgust

Our dishes smell like vomit after they have dried. We run them through the dishwasher, they seem to smell okay. Then when Dry, the smell returns. We have tried vinegar and tang rinses to no avail.

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.


I haven't changed that particular brand of dishwasher motor, so I cant give a step by step, sorry. I do know the other brands it is optional to get the motor alone or the motor with the pump assembly attached, so you may want to ask abo ... Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher
