Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

My KitchenAid Superba (whisper quiet ultima) started to leak out the front when it is running. Is this an easy repair or should we think of replacing the dishwasher? BTW - we love this dishwasher!

Hello. If the unit is over ten years old, I advise against repair. But if you do wish to consider repair, here are the things to look at
\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Main tub seal \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the: \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Lower rack \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Spray arm \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Spray arm support \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Wash/drain impellers \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Door gasket or seal \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Water-inlet valve \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Hoses \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.\015\012

My dishwasher (model #110763510) lets water go out from the door; I think the problem comes from the overfill protector because it is no more linked to the system: I can pull it out from the dishwasher. I would like to know if it easy to repair, easy access from under. If so, then I would order the piece and repair it myself. Thanks for your advice. Claude

Thermal fuse Dishwasher konked out mid-cycle and now no power to control pad. We've already had the thermal fuse replaced once (machine is only 2 years old!) and this appears to be the same issue. I tried to open the front and I think I can see where it is but not sure how to get it out and replace it AGAIN. I wasn't able to get the inside panel completely apart from the front of the unit so I was somewhat limited. I'd rather save the service charge if I can and there's n

My son and daughter in law bought a new home with all ge appliances and the dishwasher is americana. the dishwasher from the start has never worked properly. the water is cold and the drying cycle doesn't heat up. also, it doesn't drain completely. I think that this dishwasher should be repaired or replaced free of charge.

Bci450 My dishwasher has been always giving me lots of trouble. It is the BCI450 model from hotpoint. Whenever it reaches the washing stage for steam, it seems to beep alot. Many times they replaced the Circuit board but this problem comes back after 2 months. What could be the reason this is caused? Today they replaced the rubber thinking that water vapour might be reaching the circuit. I got this repaired about 7 times already and each time they replaced the circuit board.

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

Control panel will not light up, the dishwasher was running and now it has stopped mid cycle and will not do anything. I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem. There is power to the outlet, no tripped breakers. But control panel will not light up.

I have a De Dietrich DV640JE1 built in 45cm Dishwasher, working fine for over 3 years. After replacing the connection under the sink to fix a leak it has stopped working.

I checked the arms and they are not blocked. A faint clunking sound can be heard at some part of the cycle. I did also run a cycle with the dr

My Viking dishwasher won't fill with water. The motor seems to be running but no water enters the chamber. It's Sunday morning so I'm not able to get a repair person here.

Bosch dishwasher (SXH55MO6UC/46): The power comes on and runs normal, but no water is coming into the unit. I was told that it was a water inlet valve that needs to be replaced (part #263833). I need to know if this is what needs to be replaced and if so, is this something that I can do or do I need an expert repair service to do it? If it is something that I can do, I need instructions. I am handy, but this is something that I have not done before, Thank you, Craig Covey

We have a Bosch Diswasher Model SHX-46A05UC that we purchased three years ago. We have loved it! This week it started running a long long time and won't finish on its own. Also the santitized cycle is not working. We live in a remote mountain town and our local appliance repair man refuses to work on it because it is a Bosche and he hates them. Please help! Can we do something on our own before having to pull the dishwasher and take it out of town for repair? Thank you...Jackie

I have a Neff built-in dishwasher and sometimes there is a heavy leakage of water from the front right-hand side. The unit is 3-years old and there is a build up of scale around the rubber seals. The long seal at the bottom of the door seems to have receded slightly behind the metal panel on the inside of the front door. Is the seal easy to replace ?


Hello,\015\012Check the rubber seal in the bottom of the door has not perished or split,also check the bottom spray arm has not split on the ends as this will direct the spray directly onto the door,causing it to leak.\015\012\015\0 ... Neff 24 in. S5443X2 Built-in Dishwasher
