\015\012You will definatly have to slide the unit out from under the counter, dont forget the two or three screws at the top of the washer to the cabinets or counter, and if it has side panels over the insulation, you will have to access the first set of screws from underneath the dishwasher. Sometimes removing the front door helps. Careful not to lose screws, and expect that you'll have to re adjust the unit to fit back under the counter by leveling it. Do your best not to mess up the current setting of the levelers unless there is a floor height difference that will prevent you from pulling it out. (i.e. tile kitchen, and no tile under dishwasher)
\015\012When you slide it back, make sure not to pinch hoses, (feed or drain) level it as best as possible, and replace all screws!

I have a Whirlpool DU920PFGQ1 installed in the house I recently purchased. There is a gross smell coming from it, and based on other things have I found in the house, I believe that the previous owner didn't do much maintenence. Is there a filter or screens that could be clogged? The inside of the machine is gross; running vinegar through it has not helped. Can you point me in the direction of an owners manual?


Found this at Whirlpool website. Just click and print your manual.\015\012\015\012see link\015\012\015\012 ... Dishwashers

This a message for phil. The aquastop valve was not under the dishwasher. On my model, it was fitted directly onto the water inlet pipe. I replaced the valve as you suggested. After removing the old valve you could see through the clear plastic housing that water was leaking inside the valve. Anyway replaced valve but had to split wires and reconnect with connections supplied with the valve and according to instructions. Water leak has now stopped but when 'on' button is depresse

Leaky Dishwasher I recently moved into a new house that has a brand new Magic Chef dishwasher. We haven't even had a chance to use it, but last night discovered water leaking from the bottom onto the floor. When I opened the door, there was about 3-4 inches of water inside. I baled as much of the (slimey) water out as I could, and that stopped the leak. Now afraid to run the dishwasher for fear that it might leak even worse. E71195 Type 777-0

I live in the country and have mice problems in the winter. I found a mouse inside my dishwasher; it crawled back out through a small vent on the left side wall of the dishwasher. What is this vent for? Can I seal it up without a problem?


The vents are to allow air circulation around the motor when they are built in to hatches. It would not be wise to seal any of the vents. You could of course apply flywire to them with some silicon to prevent entry, ensuring mouse IS on the outside a ... Maytag Dishwashers

I just bought a house with an Ariston Dishwasher. We cleaned the parts inside, but it was closed up and full of mildew, the sides holding the door is like crouded.

I have a Nobel Dishwasher for 4 years. The timer sticks and wash goes on forever if you are not inside the house to stop it. Also, the detergent tablet door does not always open.

The detergent door problem could be due to dispenser relay getting stuck some ... Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1090AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

LG LDF8812ST dishwasher not washing: reports LE error code. Fills and drains ok. Impeller is clear, removed inside housing - no obstructions. Synchronous motor works. Tested main motor - appears to be good. Motor is not locked, looks to be in excellent condition. No shorts to ground, continuity across three main pins - not sure what the other 4 are for. My guess would be the PCB, but not sure how to test this. How do I determine if the PCB is bad?

Hi there My Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher is tripping out the fusebox RCD and I think there is an earthing problem. It will run for 3 or 4 minutes and then the house alarm goes off and the cooker clock needs resetting! I have tried to look in the back but don't know how to remove the panels. I've tried tipping it to 45 degrees to see if there is any water in the innards but non water came out. I have no idea what to look for - and no manual to help me get inside the beast! Thanks in advance.


It will probably be the water heater element is failing and shorting out.\015\012\015\012Be careful as you do not want to electrocute yourself ! ... Bosch 24 in. SGS45E02 / SGS45E08 Exxcel Free-standing Dishwasher
