Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

Grinding The situation: I have had my Whirlpool DU915PWPB1 for 2 1/2 years, it isn't the greatest dishwasher but does the job good enough. Recently, the water will fill, the washing cycle will run but then when that part stops it goes into a whirring that seems like a motor is going but nothing is moving. I have removed the Filter Modual in an attempt to find out what the grinding would be. There doesn't seem to have anything in the way or under the filter. I have ascertained that the grin

The dishwasher cycles down to 1min and then keeps trying to empty. It never does get there though. Water is still in the sump. Emptied this out once and it started ok again. Removed side cleaned out the sticky float switch. This was full of gunk. Noticed rear tank was partially blocked. Is this anything? Which is the outlet solenoid

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher. Soap never gets washed away from door. Dishwasher makes funny sound in mid cycle like the pump is not running in wash cycle. Discharge p


I can see from what you have described (by the way it is a very clear and precise description which is very helpful), there is a problem in the water circulation system. These dishwashers use an alternating water flow method to split the water circul ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

We have a Whirlpool dish washer; model#: DU810SWPQ0. It starts, water goes in and it heats up but doesn't wash anything. The spiral jet sprayer doesn't do anything. It sounds like the motor just clicks but doesn't do anything either. Water is not draining at the end of cycle either.

My dishwasher fills with water and then stops. it thinks that it is washing but never actually washes anything. It dumps the detergent out and everything but the spray wands never spin and water never circulates. Does the problem lie with the circulation pump or motor? Thanks in advance.

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is getting into the unit. I just replaced the inlet valve and solenoid and that didn't change anything. I can see water in the recirculating pipe running up the unit, but it will just try to make it up and fall back down. Not sure how to proceed...my thoughts would lead me to the main motor, but

I removed an old dishwasher and replaced it with this GE 24" Profile GSD533ODO1WW unit. It seems to run through the cycles like it should but it doesn't seem to run any water for some reason. I hooked up a new water line to it and turned it on. There where no leaks that I could see. Is there any installation manual that you could send me to make sure that I didn't miss anything or is there anything that you can tell me that I should look for? Thanks, Jesse

Frigidaire dishwasher (Electrolux FDB750RCB0) does not move water through the hose to the upper wash/spray bar. The lower wash/spray bar has pressure enough to turn. With the dish washer out from under the counter I can see the water rise very slowly up the translucent hose. If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw

I have a new Ariston LKF720 dishwasher. In part of its wash cycle it is very noisy - not water noise, but a grating motor-like noise. Is there anything I can do? Is there anywhere I can watch a dishwasher do a run and listen to its noise, Ariston or other brand? We bought the present one off the floor and did not expect any problem, having had other dishwashers for years, they being quiet. The poor technician already changed the motor, but it is still just as noisy. I am even considering sellin

Hi, I'm having trouble with my maytag jetclean eq. I've removed everything down to what I think is the drain impeller and can't figure out how to remove what seems to be this last piece. Fwiw, the trouble is dishes are dirty/cloudy, soap dispenser is still half full, and there is an inch or two of water in the bottom, like it never fully drains.

Dishwasher is making a loud grinding noise when it's started. Doesn't matter the cycle choice; the cycle starts as normal then once started up starts making a sort of grinding noise as the water is pulsing, like something is stuck or blocking the "push" of water. I couldn't see anything stuck in the bottom - any thoughts before I call a repair person? I've never owned a dishwasher before - maybe there's a basic drain/blockage thing I should check out first? And, any recommendations for repair

European Bosch SKT 5002/02. Was disconnected by our plumber to install new cabinets. Not used during winter, as it is never used in winters. Fills with water, makes no noises but does nothing else. Have been told on-line to try to turn the motor (blades, I suppose) but it looks like the whole unit is behind galvanized panels and I don't want to do what I shouldn't......

Diswasher A couple of days ago my dishwasher would not start, there are lights on the front panel and it starts a washing programme but doesn't actually wash anything. I removed the filter from inside the dishwasher and it is full with water, it seems like there is a blokage somewhere. Would a blockage cause the diswasher not to start. Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher model SGS56E02GB/47 When you switch it on no water is coming through - what sounds like the pump/motor sounds a lot rougher than normal and there's a very very faint electrical burning smell. The timer counts down, but it never appears to do anything and continues doing so after the counter has zeroed.

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher
