The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics. I called the repair guy who ususally comes out and says buy a new one! The re

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher I am getting a run around with getting my LG dishwasher fixed properly. We had a tech more than once come in and look at our dishwasher. It has not been fixed and never dried the dishes properly. It is now leaking and going to a "del" level when we attempt to wash the dishes. It is also leaking on our fairly new tiled floor and under our new kitchen cabinet. Your tech stated the dishwasher was not installed properly. The installation dept , Francine stated it is not their problem

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher SHU43C02uc/22 about 4 years ago. Recently during the last 2 washes, the machine has been giving off a smell like hot rubber during the wash cycle. It otherwise runs perfectly (dishes are clean, drains okay, etc). I have done just the routine maintenance like checking for large pieces of food but have found nothing so far. Any suggestions as to where I should look for where the smell might be coming from?

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

My dishes are coming out lacking shine and with a cloudy coating on the silverware and glasses. I use CascadeComplete and an additive liquid in the "shine" cup. My Maytag dishwasher is 15 years old. We also have very hard water, so I am being sure to fill the cups full of the powder prior to washing. Any tips? [email protected]


I'm not an expert, but either it's the hard water, or it's not getting the "shine" liquid. I'd look for a soap that specifically says that's for use with hard water. A water softener would be the best solution.Just keep an eye on the "shi ... Maytag Dishwashers
