Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

We just bought our house and the dishwasher leaked when we used i

\015 We just bought our house. The first time when we tried to use our Kenmore dishwasher 587.1546580 and it leaked. I remember when the home inspector did the inspection half a month ago and run it through a whole washing cycle and no leakage. What could have happened?\015

Answers :

The best way to determine what could be wrong is to take the side panel off the washer (usually only held on by four screws). Once this is off, have a flashlight handy, and start a wash cycle. From there, it's just a matter of following the water back to the source. Most likely candidates; leak around the float valve switch (toward the bottom front of the cabinet) or the door seal, but you can't go wrong by tracing back where the water is coming from, and THAT way, you won't be buying the wrong parts, you can order what you need! Good Luck!.
Check around the bottom of the seal on the door . It might have a build up of old soap and food this will cause a leakIf you clean it good it should take care of it.

Maytag My Maytag dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. It is a mdbh940aww. it was never used before. It was wrapped in the plastic wrap when I bought the house in 2005. Now the old one just went and I want to put this one in. It fit nicely, works great but leaks all over the floor. It is level and I check most of the parts. I put a mirror underneath and it looks like the rubber thing isnt looking too good. Do I replace this? If so how?

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

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

Me and my partner just bought a new house and yesterday we tried the dishwasher for the first time. I'm not sure which model we have, but it is a white Westinghouse Dishwasher with 5 wash options.

Do you know what we can do about this?

We haave a Frigidare FGHD2433KB1 dishwasher that we installed in September of 2010. Already it is not working and we are 2 highway hours from the place where we bought it. Sometimes the detergent doesn't open, sometimes dishes are not dry, recently the PF light has been coming on - yet no other appliance has had power interrupted. I am thoroughly disgusted with this machine and there are only two of us in the house so it get light use and we rinse our dishes well before placing in dishwasher.

Dead dishwasher? I have an Prima LXP600 dishwasher that doesn't work - no power light, no beeps, no anything. I've changed the fuse and used different power sockets. Is there anything that I can investigate, or alternatively is it likely to worth calling an engineer? The machine looks almost unused (was in a repossessed house that I bought, so no history), so I'd like to think that it's got some life left in it!

I bought a house with a Bosch dishwasher in it and soon found that the top spinner holes are blocked with bits of old labels. I have removed the spinner and separated the concentric tubes but I do not see how to push the debris back along to the inlet. Do I need a power but very small jet to put into the holes along the arm? Would drying it then putting the suction of a vacuum over the inlet hole be useful?


This is very common if the filters are not cleaned regulary if you remove the arms and soak them in hot soapy water for around half an hour this should loosen the debris also tap them on the side of the sink this will remove more stubborn debris ,ref ... Bosch Dishwashers

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and
