\015\012If your dishwasher was working perfectly before this incident and all that has happened is no use, then the problem is with the motor. It's most likely some gunk/dirt has dried up over time and is preventing the motor from turning. The humming sound suggests the motor is trying to turn but is stuck. your motor and the assembly should look similar to this.

\015\012When you will need to do is take out the motor and the assembly from the washer and thoroughly clean the motor with some soapy water, you will have to seprrate the motor from the assembly to do this correctly, once the motor and the assembly are clean, you will need to apply lots of WD40 on both of them, try to turn the motor and keep appling WD40 until the motor starts to turn freely, clean and wipe with a dry cloth, leave it out for a few hours then reassemble and put back into the washer, this will resolve your problem, there may still be some humming noise but I'm afraid thats common to all Kenmore's.

Just had a Bosch dishwasher installed in my new kitchen. The plumber who installed it ran it and it worked. Now we cannot get it to run. We have tried everything. Restarted several times, turned the circuit breaker off and on, changed the cycle and nothing works. The light comes on but it does not get water or run. What are we doing wrong.

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

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? (

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned!

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom.
