Not getting enough water flow into the dishwasher, suspect that a filter is clogged due to recent work on the waterline in the kitchen sink. Need to know where the filter might be located (on the dishwasher or on the intake valve before the connection to the dishwasher hose)? Also would I need to disconnect the water supply to pull out the dishwasher for access to such a filter.

You didn't specify a brand but most dishwashers don't have a water "filter." They may have an inlet screen at the water valve, which is typically located under the dishwasher. Generally, the lower front panel will have to be removed and you should ... Dishwashers

I'm having a problem with my Miele dishwasher G 879 SCVi I asked for assistance on 2/12/10 and paid $6.00. I have yet to get a response. Please let me know when I will as I need the problem addressed before Christmas Day. The problem again is that all the lights on the diswasher panel are all flashing at the same time when switched on. It may need to be reset somehow, as the power went off, which may have caused the problem. Your urgent assistance is required. Thank you

Ld-1416T I have an LG LD-1416T dishwasher and the lower spray arm does not turn. The top arm turns and the top rack is washed well. I pulled everyting out and cleaned all the filters (which weren't that dirty) but still no luck. I could only get so much stuff out to clean before it looked like to go any further, I would need to gain access through the bottom. Are there more filters in the motor area which might need cleaning? I read that it could be the vario motor. Can I test this? and if s

Need the wiring diagram for the front panel/door of the dishwasher. The wiring diagram in the owners manual does not provide adequate description of which wires connect where. My problem is that, in taking off the door, two wires became disconnected and I cannot tell where they should be reconnected. I called Viking and they are unwilling to provide this (they prefer I call an authorized repair person). Does anyone know whether a repair manual exists for this and where I might get ahold of one.

Maytag HDB8600AWW Dishwasher had been making noise (thought might be water valve, like previous DW), eventually stopped draining water, water now in bottom, I've let sit for couple weeks, looked inside, water was gone, I tried running again, it filled with water, but heard humming control panel noises for first time, then shuts itself off. Also, my handle needs replaced. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. David Weaver

Amana dishwasher, model adb2200aws, ser #, 26650464e. history: quit running, no lights, nothing. replaced the door switch, ran for three days, replaced the switches on both sides of door switch, ran three days, quit. replaced the circuit panel , ran one time, quit. not lights, nothing. when I take it apart sometimes, that is take off inside cover on door, it might run or not. seems like the current isn't getting in as no lights will come one.

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?
