KUDK01ILBS5), SN: FR2702809. Have used this machine 6 years and just recently experienced noise that I eventually traced down to a bad recirculation pump bearing that failed due to a small leak in the shaft seal. Installed a new pump on Friday, 4/21/10 and that particular noise is now quieted. While the bearing noise was gone, there remains a pumped water noise that is quieted by manually adding about 1/2 gallon of water within the machine. So I now believe the water level is low, possib


The water level in the machine should be slightly under the heat element. The float you refer to is only for overfill and should not be activated if the machine is filling properly (the water level should be lower than the float switch activation poi ... Dishwashers

Water stopped pumping so ordered new pump. Upon removing the old I discovered it had a few straws twisted up into the pump. Removed and reinstalled pump and it sounds great and throws water all over with force. PROBLEM: Now there is ZERO water coming through top tube to spray arm. Pulled pump back off and noticed what seems to be a "white diverter ball" that moves a little in front of the inlet for the upper water tube. Any guidance to where the ball should be prior to installing the pump

E1 fault code Dishwasher runs for about 5 minutes. Water fills up at bottom of unit and then machine seems to pause then fault code E1 appears then water is pumped out from bottom of machine.

My plumber just installed a new water supply line for my dishwasher. Now the pump comes on but no water fills up in the machine. If I fill the bottom of the unit with water, it works just fine. Even though the water supply is ON, it does not pump water into the 'box'. Thanks, Art


You don't know how many times I've heard and found the shutoff valve off or partly turned off. Water entering DW is from line pressure not pumping. Items to suspect (again) the water supply valve (would'nt be the first time a new valve is bad). The ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU915QW Built-in Dishwasher

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't. I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer. I have discovered that the plug for the disposer was not taken out where the dishwasher hose attached. The dish washer stopped working after a new disposer was installed. I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks
