Having problems with your Kenmore Dishwashers ?

Model 587784100 My 18inch Kenmore apartment-sized portable dishwasher leaks when running and needs a new main rubber gasket (where the door seals the washer), and a new collar of some sort of white hard plastic collar at the very bottom of the spinning washer arm (which I believe helps make it spin more freely and not "chatter"?) My question is: Is it possible foe a handy person to replace these parts (looks fairly easy), or should I get a proper Kenmore/Sears repairman to fix it?

TV static I just installed a new dishwasher. When it is running, it causes static lines on the TV. Prior to the new dish washer, I did not have this problem. It is wired correctley, and not on the same circuit. As I stated I did not have this problem until the new dishwasher. I called the service people for the dishwasher, and they stated they could not help me. Have you got any ideas, or do they make some type of filter I can put on the line to the TV.

My Maytag Quiet Series 200 is making loud noises. It appears to be continuing the cycle. When we stop and start the washer, it sounds like the motor is working hard (high pitched sound). It sounds serious. I'd like to troubleshoot myself if possible. Also, what is the criteria for an 8 year old washer when it comes to the decision of fix vs buy new?

I need a new dishwasher What do you recommend between Kenmore Elite. Quietguard Ultra. Model no. 665.77962K703 versus LG model LDF7920 I get conflicting information- a repairman we know says LG is the better make, needing far fewer repairs than Kenmore in general ( this washer I am thinking of buying was made by whirpool, I was told at the Sears store) But online reports claim LGs need the most repairs. HELP OR... do you have something else to recommend?

I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

I have a pressure washer with a faip 3 piston pump. the other day i was using it and it stopped unloading. i cleaned the unloader and it didn't help. I bought a new one and it still won't work. I e-mailed Ryobi and they will not respond. There were no instructions on installing and adjusting the unloader. Could you give me an idea how to install and set up the new unloader. Any help would be most appreciated.


I think your main problem is that the unloader valve needs to be lubricated. Use the very best water resistant bearing grease you can find. If you can e-mail me a pic of your unloader assembly I can try to explain how to set it up. [email protected] ... Honda Pressure Washers

IDL750 - Fuse trips when turned on. HELP! We had some electricians here to install a new electrical socket for a new fridge. They put the new socket in the same wiring as for my existing dishwasher!! The first time I tried to start the dishwasher cycle with the new fridge plugged in, the circuit box fuse tripped. Now, even with the fridge turned off, the dishwasher makes the fuse trip when turned on. Is there a fuse inside the dishwasher that has blown and needs to be replaced? or a ground brea

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same. It will build a small amount of pressure, spray for a few seconds, then the pressure dropps to almost nothing. Any help ap

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. Also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.

Our office has a new Asko d3112 dishwasher and maybe its just "user error" but we set it to wash and it stayed on for 3hrs? How do we set it to a normal wash? Simple question but for busy accountants we could use some help! Thank You


This is probably not 'user error'. No machine has a 3 hour wash cycle. The timer will not advance if the water is not up to the proper temp. A severely extended wash cycle is usually caused by a faulty heating element.\015\012I assume the wa ... Asko 24 in. D3112 Free-Standing Dishwasher
