I just installed a new Kitchenaid dishwasher (Model KUDE60FVSS3). After filling with soap, closing the door and starting the machine, it fills with water, waits a couple of minutes and then I can hear low humming noices coming from down below. After opening the door it appears that neither spray arm has turned as if to wash. This dishwasher was purchased new a few years ago and kept in storage as our basement was being finished. This dishwasher has never completed one cycle. Any and all inf

My sound conditioned Whirlpool dishwasher is real old. It fills up completely with water. It looks like it will overflow, so I stop it. I thought it always started washing from the start. Do they always fill completely up with water, then start washing. I never noticed. I am afraid the water will overflow. Can it? Last time I ran this, it had a real loud motor. I used to hear the motor running from the start, but now I don't, just water filling up to what looks like overflow if I let it. I baile

Kenmore Dishwasher My dishwasher fills with water and then stops. I hear the cycle timer continue all the way through the cycle. I pulled the screen off the bottom inside of the dishwaher and stuck my hand in the diswasher drain. Originally I felt and cleared what appeared to be a torn up rubber band. I feel a thin straight metal pin that I can rotate and I believe it causes the pump to rotate as well. Once I do that the dishwasher will run normally thorough a complete cycle...BUT I have to


If you have either dry bearings in the motor or sticky grease buildup in the pump bearing/seal, it can cause the motor to stick rather than rotate on startup. More likely to be greasy crud buildup. \015\012\015\012The best you can do without disasse ... Kenmore 24 in. 15149 Built-in Dishwasher

I have the GE Quiet Power 3 Model gld4400n10bb. When I start a wash I can hear it fill with water (to about 1/2 inch below the heating element). It then waits for about 5-7 minutes and pumps the water out. It fills again several times and pumps out. It doesn't sound like it is washing though. The whole interior of the dishwasher is covered with dried soap. I can also tell that water is not spraying around the whole interior. Any ideas?

My Kenmore Ultra Wash 2 portable dishwasher is not filling with water, is there a screen or filter that could be dirty? It worked fine yesterday and I can hear the motot running, but it does not fill. ( I did make sure there is water to the faucet, lol)


Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve. Often when they fail they get extremely hot and melt the outside housing. These are cheap to replace and can be done easily. I recommend contacting TheRepairClinic.com and using the online help feature to ... Dishwashers

Hum in Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model 8531529. Stated last night. No hum when filling or draining - only during the wash cycle. Can still hear the water spinning inside during the wash cycle, but hum is loud. The water does fill & drain completely/correctly. Any ideas? Might this be an easy fix? or a likely repair man call? Thanks!!

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

Model #363.14232100 dishwasher. When you turn the switch to on, it will not come on. If you keep turning the knob slowly you can hear the dishwasher trying to start up,but it doesn't. Keep turning the knob and its the same thing, sounds like it will start, but it doesn't. It did fill with water, but once it was opened it didn't start up where it left off. The lock switch was in position, and still nothing. Now I have water in the bottom but can't get the thing to come on. Any suggestions? Help!

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.
