Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher will fill with water and then when it goes to run it just pulses. The lights go dim in my house and the dishwasher acts like it is going to start, but it never kicks in. It doesnt matter what cycle it is on.

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

No matter which cycle selection in pushed, the dishwasher only starts up in the "normal" 93 min cycle. If I try other cycle options, and persist, I get an ER message and the cycle stops prior to the soap powder door opening and never completes the cycle. Only with turning off power for several minutes and receiving the PF message, and resetting ONE TIME that message can I then select any cycle, at which time the machine "defaults" to the "normal" full cycle. If I do not disturb that cycle, it wi

Our dishwasher model is a Nautilus FP920WW. The unit switches on OK and displays the normal wash cycle settings but when we try to start or change a cycle (or press any button for that matter) all we get is a quick, intermittent beeping and nothing happens/changes. Switching the dishwasher off and on again at the wall does nothing to solve this problem. What's going on???

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a
