BOSCH SHE43 Dishwasher My Bosch D/W makes a loud high-pitched squealing sound at the beginning of the cycle and for a few seconds intermittently while running. I have checked and cleaned the filter, made sure there are no obstructions in the bottom and I am stumped. I have only had it a little over 2 years, spent a small fortune on it and really hope it isn't something super expensive. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

I have a new FDB520RHS2A Frigidaire dishwasher which remains in the wash cycle after I've started it. It sounds as if it is changing cycles but the wash light stays lit and never switches to rinse. The machine continues to run for hours if I don't stop it. We've checked the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear. the water temp seems to be hot enough but how do I check that? Any ideas on what we should check before we bring it back to the store? Your help is much appreciated. Thanks!

My dishwasher will not drain after cycling. I have check the drain hose connected to the disposal. All is in good order the hose is not cinked and the air hole is unblocked. I have also checked the screen at the bottom of the dishwasher, there is no debris or blockage here either. I can run the dishwasher on normal, it cycles but I still have stagnat water left beneath the bottom rack. How do I check my pump to see if it is working or could it be a short of some kind? It is a Kenmore Quite


The problem is a solenoid under the unit. It is a small black cylinder that operates a valve to change from the wash cycle to the drain cycle. You can probably order a new one from Kenmore for pretty cheap. ... Kenmore 24 in. 15252 / 15254 / 15259 Built-in Dishwasher

My zanussi zdf131 has not caused any problems during the last year or so since i purcheased it, but now all the dishes etc come out with a "bloom" of white over everything. I've checked all filters etc, run several cleaning programmes but I've now noticed that the salt level does not seem to be going down. I check it every week & refil but this time the salt has been in the reservoir for several weeks & doesn't seem to have changed - could this cause the problem & if so why is the salt level not

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

It continues to heat water and it sounds like the motor is running even though the time indicator shows 0 minutes. I have to manually switch it off. Any ideas before I call out an engineer. I have checked all the filters etc included in the troubleshooter info anf there are no blockages.

Hotpoint HDA3400g dishwasher is not running. I have checked to make sure it has power. Took the washer apart, checked that it had power through the door switch to the timer control, all is well. Still not running or getting water into the dishwasher. Any ideas besides replacing the water inlet valve? Will this dishwasher cycle through if it does not have water?

I have a Bosch SHV55M03GB model which does not complete the cycle - if left it would run endlessly. However if set to rinse it completes the cycle after resetting the machine.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher, Model SHE46C06UC. No mater what cycle I start it in, it simply activates the drain and continues to run without ever starting. Within the last week prior to the dishwasher not working, I noticed a low hum/vibration emitting from the dishwasher. I've clean out the screen and drain filter, removed the pump cover to check for any debris. I've manually added water and it does drain. Additionally, the drain cycle continues to operate even with the door open.


First thing you may want to check is the door switch. You can pull it off and measure the resistance with an ohmmeter. If you get good reading while pushed in and none while switch button is released, then it is a good start. Next, you may want ... Dishwashers

We have a KitchenAid dishwasher (KUDI01FLSS6) which has not been working properly for a long time. We have the dreaded green blinking light mystery. We understand that this could indicate several different problems. We have found that if we run the sink water until it is hot, then start the dishwasher, and then after ten minutes we open then shut the door, it will consistently run the full cycle perfectly. Does this give you any hint of what might be the problem component -sensor, element, the

My Bosch dishwasher is taking hours (at least 3 - maybe more) to complete a cycle. There is gummy, yucky stuff building up inside - sorta pinkish brownish. Could the water not be hot enough? A couple of months ago we installed an on-demand hot water heater and I wonder if that could have anythig to do with it. I've tried running the hot water in the sink first but that doesn't help. Any ideas


If your on demand heater is one of the small ones that mounts under the sink, it will not flow enough water to fill your dishwasher. the dishwasher is waiting for the water level to fill before it starts washing. your bosch will heat its own wat ... Bosch SHX46A07UC Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher is 2 years old. Top shelf dishes not getting clean even on on heavy duty and sani rinse cycle. All arms move freely,tried the 2 cups white vinegar in an open container and run cycle.

I have a GE Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that was working fine last week. Over the weekend I ran it and we could hear a banging noise, so my boyfriend opened it three or four times in a row (during the cycle) to figure out what it was. The fourth time, it went dead. I checked and it had tripped the breaker. I reset the breaker and the dishwasher seemed to be working again, however the lights on the front were flashing (they hadn't previously), and now it will run for about 10 minutes but no water ru

Brand new dishwasher, installed last week. When it is done there is quite a lot of water standing in the bottom of the tub. It has only been run 2 times since installed and both times several inches of water were left standing.

Our 2 month old Frigidaire FGHD2433KF1 dishwasher is producing a very strong foul odor. It is not connected to a garbage disposal and we only see a small amount of water in the bottom of tub when the dishwasher is off. When I use the sanitize cycle, it seems that the smell is even more intense, not sure if that could be do to a small amount of steam escaping on the highest setting ? We have no idea what to check any suggestions would be much appreciated


Do you have it connected to an air gap? If not this can allow the water to drain back into the dishwasher and will sometimes have food particles in it making it stink. ... Dishwashers

Ice maker cannot eject cubes. I took off the front cover and found several contact points for checking the motor, water valve, thermostat, mold heater. There is also a line voltage and neutral contact. Are these contacts live only during certain parts of the cycle? I suspect the heater isnt working to loosen the cubes so they cant be ejected. The motor sounds lilke its running but the ejector is not moving nor is the Gear on the front of the unit. Can someone give me a full description of this t

Noisey maytag We have a maytag quiet series 300 with the 3 racks. Just recently we have been hearing alot of noise from our dishwasher while it is in the washing and rinsing mode. We have checked the arms to make sure they are moving but doesn't seem to be a problem. Thought maybe there is a liquid that we could pour into the washer to run through it's cycle? Of course we know nothing about the inter works of a dishwasher.

Kitchen circut was accidently turned off. Now whirlpool gold disher will not work(unit was not running and the door was not closed all the way when circuit was turned off, All circuit breakers are on) There are no lights on display when door is closed completely, and it appears to have no power. Worked fine prior, what could it be? The unit has not been removed from under the counter yet. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker on the unit? If so where is it located? Other troubleshooting ideas
