Sporadic pressure The pressure on my washer cuts in and out continuously, two seconds of power followed by two seconds of nothing. I have tried to take the lance off to see if it is blocked, but it seems to be stuck fast. Any help would be welcome, thanks in advance.


OK. Pulsing on and off is quite common. Unfortunately, it can have several possible causes.\015\012\015\012If the  machine pulses while you are squeezing the trigger, and there is water coming out of the jet, then most probably the jet is ... Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer

I'm trying to remove the disposal cover in the dishwasher (GE GSD3207P00WW) in order to clean it, but unlike previous models I've dealt with, this one has a filter thing that looks like a tilted plate, just under the main washer, and that has apparently a drainage tube (or some such) that goes down through the disposal cover, so I'm unable to remove it. How does one take that apart?

My dishwasher filter keeps getting plug up with large food particles. I take it apart and clean the screen. It works for a 2-3 -4 weeks before I have to do it again. There is a spinning fan on the screen. I'm wondering if this scrapper fan is working at all. If it was I think it would keep the small screen free from particles. The first thing that happens is the top cleaning arm stops working.' Thanks


Hi Judy. The only way to know for sure is to power up the fan independent of the machine and see if it still works. In the meantime, rinse and remove all debris from the dishes prior to placing them in the machine, including pots and pans. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I have a mod KDSU01DJ that will not drain. I've had it all apart, there are no clogs, nothing stuck. I bench tested the motor and the pump, both run ok. It seems like the pump isn't pushing hard enough. Should the motor be running with the pump during the drain cycle. I"m stumped. Thanks.

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

I have a Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB4100. Are there directions for removing the cleaning equipment in the bottom of the dishwasher? I do have the manual and there are no instructions to do this. I am getting scummy buildup around the drain and suspect it needs a good thorough cleaning that I can't do without taking it apart. I have tried to clean away the "gook" but it reappears after a few washes and I can't reach the back. Thank you, Cara

After wash cycles are completed there is about 1/2 gallon of water remaining in the bottom of the washer. I checked the drain that exits into a disposal and that is clear. All around the bottom of the washer base is clean and I can find no obstruction. Nothing in the owners manual gives me a clue as what else to do. I don't want to start taking things apart unless I have to.


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Most dishwashers are connected to the sink / garbage disposal via an Air Gap. The Air Gap gets debris inside it that blocks the drain passages. Check out this video on how to clean it: ... Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AW Built-in Dishwasher

My GE Profile Performance dishwasher (GSD 4910) doesn't drain. I hear the pump working, and water draining into the sink (not a disposal) as it should, but water is left standing in the tub about as high as the heating element. I have taken it apart and removed a few small items stuck in the system in various places, but that didn't affect anything. I have read here and there about the piston and nut assembly, but I don't think my model has that -- or maybe it does? Can you affer a
