Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

I have an old Kitchen-Aid dishwasher, model KDS-16, circa 1960, that had only occasional use and has sat completely idle since 1995. When we turned it on the motor made a high-pitched grinding noise. Can I still obtain a repair manual for this model?

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.


That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit. ... Dishwashers

Kenmore Model 1590 Dishwasher, 1985, sitting unused since about 1994. Takes water into tub but never goes through any washing/rinsing cycles; water stands in bottom (I stop it below door level). A click, like a solenoid activation from the timer area, but motor never does anything. Removed the shroud covering what I assume is the impeller, which was stuck, but freed it by turning several times...made no difference. Suggestions??

DISHWASHER NOISE I HAVE A HOTPOINT DISHWASHER MODEL HDA3420Z02BB SERIAL # TT813162Y. IT IS ABOUT 10 YEARS OLD AND JUST TONIGHT DEVELOPED A CLICKING/ GRINDING NOISE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DISHWASHER. I REMOVED THE LOWER COVERS AND IT APPEARS TO BE COMONG FROM THE MOTOR AREA OR I GUESS THAT IS THE PUMP ATTACHED TO IT. JUST WONDERED IF THERE IS A PATTERN FAILURE WITH THIS MODEL AND IF SO IS IT FAIRLY EASY REPAIRED?


A noise could be created by something getting down into the motor-pump assembly piece of glass, piece of bone, wire tie anything really. If this is the case and you can remove it before it causes further damage problem solved. At ten years old the ... Hotpoint 24 in. HDA3400G Built-in Dishwasher

Dish Washer, Electrolux Home Products, Model FDB2510LCC0, Serial NO: 7H34962223 Machine does not drain or add water. The machine has been worked for a couple of years. I checked the following: 1. Overfill Protector not stuck 2. Motor turns on and the machine cycles correctly 3. Since the machine has been running correctly the unit is hooked up correctly: hoses, garbage disposal, knockout plug. Again everything has worked and the motor does cycle and the machine will perform the different cycles

Motor removal Our dishwasher (Model LDS 5811WW) has LE come up when you turn it on. We were told by LG that it needs a new motor...so how do we get one? Also do you have any instructions as to properly getting it out? The clsest repair person suggested is 1 hr. from us and it would cost 3/4 of what the diswasher cost originally.


I am having a same problem. You can open dishwasher sump assembly from inside the dishwasher and check if something is blocking white impeller. I tried to open impeller and sheared screw head as I did't realized it is left handed screw. Even after cl ... LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher

We have a Maytag built-in dishwasher Quiet Series model MDB8551AWB. When we press the Start, the lights light up, but after a few minutes all lights turn off. We've unplugged and plugged it back in. I've tried to repeat the 'start up' multiple times and sometimes it sounds like the motor is going to begin but then it pauses and stops. All lights turn off. No odd noises or grinds.

My Maytag dishwasher model MDB7130AWB started making a grinding noise tonight during drain cycle. We just had some work done on the sprinkler system and the water main to the house as well as the check valve for the sprinkler system have been turned off and on a lot the last two days. I noticed that we had some dirty water come out of a sink in a bathroom, after that repair. Don't know if that could be related to this problem but it was worth mentioning.


Shut off water to the machine, remove the hoses at the machine and inspect & clean the mesh filters in the water inlets. If dirt did get into the line, it would be from the water main work, not the sprinkler work.It doesn't hurt to clean the ... Maytag MDB7130 Dishwasher

I have a newer model GE dishwasher. About a couple of weeks ago we lost power to home. When power was returned the dishwasher was making a high pitch sound and power was not returned to the front display. I had to remove a black/white wire from front of the display to make the high pitch sound go away. Do you have any solutions to make the high pitch so go away and for power to be restored to the front display? Thank you.


Hello\015\012\015\012High pitch sound comes when the main control also known as the electronic board goes bad and needs replacement.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU890SWKQO). I turned it on and for a few minutes only the motor was running, no water. I opened the dishwasher to stop it and turn it off, then on again. When I opened it, the was an odor (burning or heat smell) and it was foggy (steam or smoke, not sure which) inside. I am assuming I did not turn the dial correctly so it only 'clicked' on the motor. Concerned now that the dishwasher is broken or concerned that it's not safe to use. Was the steam/smoke

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?

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. I got a response that said ''The ventilators are blocked. Turn it off and have the motor checked'' i was hoping for instructions on how to unblock the ventilators or clean it out. I have a house full of people for the weekend and would love to get this thing back up before Monday when a repair person could come. Any suggestion

My Maytag model mdb9600aws motor shaft seal is leaking. How do I remove the seal and replace a new one. I am a novist, but I have taken the motor completely out and replaced the seal / gasket that the motor sits in, but there still is a leak. I am afraid the leak is going to destroy the motor as it has corrosion / salt like stuff about the motor. I have attempted to pry the shaft off with the use of 2 screw drivers. I was thinking since I am going to replace the whole motor shaft seal and chop


You are wise to realize the leak would destroy the motor.Take a close look at the diagram to see everything that gets placed on the motor shaft. That should give you a good idea what can/must be removed from that shaft. ... Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

My AEG Favourit F35080vl is behaving strangely. When turned on, the lights don't light and it doesn't work, but it emits a ticking noise! After an hour or so it works (until yesterday), and is ok, unless turned off. It was inadvertently turned off at the weekend, and now ticks whenever turned on and refuses to behave normally again. We got a local repair man out who replaced the logic board at a considerable cost, and it has made no difference. He says he doesn't know what to do next! Any ideas?

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water. I push wash cycle, indicator light comes on, shut door and nothing happens.  So the door switch seemed like a good place to start. Since I am an electrician I thought I would give it a shot.
