Water is remaining in the bottom of the washing units. I tried cleaning out the tubes with a snake via the garbage disposal.

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one? Would you also be able to tell me what year this mod

I have a F&P Model DD602I. I had a repairman out to change out hoses that were bad and now I have this problem: When I just run the bottom unit, it works fine, but a bunch of water ends up in the top unit that I have to drain out. If I just run the top unit, water collects in that unit causing a default. Now if I run both units together and I start the top unit about 3 seconds after starting the bottom unit, both units work fine! When I look at the hoses under the sink, they loop down quite a bi

Maytag Dishwasher I would like to know the proper water level after DW fills. Older Whirlpool units a quick guide was when water just covered heater. I have a new D/W and the water supply is difficult to access, there is a kink in the water line slowing the water flow. The D/W fills to bottom of heater, but because the unit is so quiet I can't determine if it is timing out or working properly. I intend to repair water line when counter work is done. Thanks for any help Gary


Newer Maytags should fill close or up to the heater not over. Sounds like your alright for now but I would get that water line fixed. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB8951AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I own a GE Profile GSD 4330 dishwasher. Recently it has been leaving some water in the bottom of the tub. This water accumulates over time until the entire bottom is filled. I have checked the air vent, garbage disposal unit and the filter in the bottom of the dishwasher (which was filthy). I cleaned the filter and everything else looks okay, but it is still leaving some water in the tub.

I have a LG Dishwasher LD 14AW3 it fills and runs for about 30 min. It then appears that when it tries to rinse it cannot get water and flashes "1E". I disconnected the unit and when I moved it out of its position water was leaking from the bottom of the unit. after cleaning out the inside filter & the hard water filter I re-connected and found it worked. I ran a dishwasher cleaner through it at high temp. After a few loads the problem has come back. It is now located in MY garage waiting for me

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

We recently installed a Kenmore dishwasher, Mfr Model# 13943. We have used the dishwasher approximately six times since Thanksgiving. Each time, after the wash cycle is complete, when we open the door, water has collected on the interior of the door, and water remains standing on some of the washed dishes. Is this normal?

Incomplete cycle My Miele dishwasher (3 to 4 years old) finishes, leaving the dishes dirty and wet. It seems that it may only be running through part of the cycle - I'm not sure but from the time I set it going to the time it switches off, it seems shorter than usual. The dishwasher is not emptying as it has a pool of water in the bottom. I have tried various settings and have the same problem. the inlet/drain light DOES NOT come on. I have soaked up all the residue on the bottom and cleaned out

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

Also, my handle needs replaced. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. David Weaver

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model DA 6141. For some time now it has not been completely discharging the water at the end of a cycle. But sometime it does completely dicharge.Two days ago it started leaking water from its bottom at the end of a cycle.I tried to locate the leak but was unsucessfuly. All the external plumbing is ok andf there is no leak from the discharge pipe nor water intake pipe. So perhaps its something to do with the water pump?
