I have a du1145xtpq7 whirlpool dishwasher. Out of the blue it quit working completely. The sensing and washing lights light up, but when it goes to the next step of just washing nothing happens. The soap dispenser door opens and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It wasn't making any irregular noises, unless I'm just used to them since it came with the house. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

I have been interacting with Daniel about my Dishwasher Smart Dispenser problem. The last thing he had to say to me was that I needed to replace my drain pump. Before doing this, I would like an explanation of why a new drain pump will solve my problem since my dishwasher is draining just fine...it is my Smart DIspenser that is clogged up and not working ??

Dishwasher is leaving soap on my dishes in top rack. Was using a gel soap heard that switching to a powder would solve this problem. Did not work. I also cleaned dishwasher with Tang kool-aid, but did not work either. Help

SOAP DISPEN DISHWASHER SOAP DISPEN NOT OPENING I bought a brand new LG dishwasher about 6 months ago. I've had a few problems with it. First, it gives off a smell when it operates. Secondly, more often than not, the soap dispenser does not open. I have read the manual and have tried putting a lot less soap but it still does not work. Should I try switching to liquid soap instead?


Is the machine heating ok?, if so then the dispenser and or the electronic control board is most likely faulty. \015\012if the machine is still in warranty call your lg service agent and when the tech is on site, reque ... Dishwashers

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2-400-XTB7 Problem started with display cycling through delay times. (1 hr, 2hr, 3 hr and so on.) Was able to cancel that for short periods and then it would repeat the cycle. Was able to run dishwasher by pressing different buttons. Then it would start a cycle but did not run full cycle. Now control panel doesn't work at all. When buttons are pushed, lights do not light up and nothing happens. Is stuck in lock mode.

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one? Would you also be able to tell me what year this mod

We have had the dishwasher for about 1 year. It has worked fine up until a month or so ago. I use liquid detergent and after I wash a load of dishes, the liquid soap is all over the botton of the dishwasher, around the dispenser door and all over the dishes loaded above the soap door. Do you have any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you.

I have a new Whirlpool dishwasher. It has been working fine until a couple of weeks ago when all of a sudden I've been having a problem with the soap dish not opening and dispensing the packet of detergent. What should I do to solve this problem? I have run the cycle through three times and it still won't disolve the packet. The dispenser opens, but the packet is only partially disolved, leaving the dishes not washed. eileen mueller, glendora, ca

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash away, but not the soap that comes out once the trap door pops for the main wash. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be causing the problem?


Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking. ... GE 25 in. Nautilus GSC3400J Free-standing Dishwasher

I have a 12 year old Kenmore Ultrwash Model #665.15951790. I recently replenished the rinse aid dispenser and am experiencing an oversuding problem. It was oversuding to the point that suds were coming out the bottom of the door. Did notice that the blue rinse aid seemed to have leaked into the dishwasher due to a puddle of blue rinse aid at the bottom of the dishwasher. Have run a "quick rinse" cycle 4 times with no dishwasher soap added and still have sudsing. Can the rinse aid cause oversudin

I tried the steps listed at this website for the same issue I am having. http://www.fixya.com/support/t273954-kenmore_elite_dishwasher The steps worked to get the dishwasher to "reset" with all the lights coming on. The problem I am having now is that after the "reset" the dishwasher starts to run a small cycle for about 5 minutes. Upon opening the washer, nothing has happened inside (no water, no visible movement of parts, no soap container opening). Upon closing the dishwasher and trying

Hi! Our Kenmore Ultra dishwasher is about 11 yrs old. Recently started overflowing onto the floor. Seems to be worse with soap, less when just water. Is this a problem I need to get a repairman or just use less soap? Checked the drain cycle - pump seems to work fine. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks AM from Portland

I purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher in either July or August 2009 from Best Buy. It is not cleaning all my dishes. I have tried 3 different types of soap--the packets that came with it; powder; and liquid hoping that it would work. I have loaded light and heavy. I have tried the normal and light settings with rinse, hot water or not. They are just not getting clean. And the dispensers are not totally emptying. I already had to have a new dishwasher sent because the first one was damaged on

I've had 2 repairmen out for my whirlpool dishwasher (2 yrs old) which is leaving a removeable film on the dishes. White powder, looks like soap. One put in a new soap dispenser (made no difference) the other said it was a hard water problem. Can hard water cause a powder/soap film?

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover

Have a LG dishwasher with a OE error. Took machine ouside and it works well with the garden tap hooked to it. Put it back inside and does not work. I noticed a major kink in the inlet hose, would this be causing the problem and does the hose have to be replaced.Australia.


The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this ... LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?
