Opened door and unit did not have electrical power (lights did not come on either unit). Called serviceman. He stated there was no electricity to unit(s). Called electrican. He stated wiring to the dishwasher had power. Called serviceman again. He came out and dishwasher worked. He did nothing to it. I opened the door and the lights(buttons) came on. Unit worked for a few days and this morning, there was again, no power to the unit. What is likely wrong with this dishwasher?

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics. I called the repair guy who ususally comes out and says buy a new one! The re

The slide on the upper basket keeps falling out. It's been fixed twice but doesn't hold. The second repair man who put the slide back in the rollers said he couldn't see anything wrong with it, but it still didn't hold, so he called your tech dept. who said they had roller and slide kits at a total cost of $66 for this model. The slide kit had a new part number but the tech department didn't tell the repair man why they'd changed the part. The roller kit was one for dishwashers the sides o

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t

I have Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model # KUDMOITJBLO. We began having trouble with the top rack coming out of the brackets on the upper rack track. Kitchen Aid sent me 4 parts # 8268785. The problem is that the brackets that they sent have wheels on them. I don't know how to get them into the track. A call to Kitchen Aid got me no where. They claimed that they don't sell parts so therefore they could not help me (with the parts that they sold me). The situation has gotten progressively worse.


I removed the tracks from inside the dishwasher.  Then I was able to carefully remove the endcaps (something I had not been able to do previously) carefully.  The existing broken wheels slid out and I slid two new brackets into each track. ... Dishwashers

The release clasp on the front of the dishwasher seems to be broken. It does not click correctly when I attempt to open the door and seems "free". For a few times, it seemed like it was hard to open but no one used a lot of force, we just tried several times and then it would open. Can this be a part I can replace myself or do I need to call a repairman?

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it. Anyway, my nephew ordered the parts he said needed to be replaced. One was the top water feed tube and bearing which he had no problem replacing when the part came in. But, he is having a very difficult time opening up the front door to replace the soap dispenser. Removed the 6 screw (three on each side) and the two at the top of the door but that is as far

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher and had it installed into my new kitchen. It is plumbed and it does not work, a reapair man said it needs a new motherboard. My issue is that Bosch can't seem to supply central Wi. with this part. The repair place put the order in two and onehalf months ago and still cannot give me a date about when the part will be in. I have owned this dishwasher for five months and have not been able to use it once!

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

One of the lid actuator motors died on my F&P DD603 dishwasher and was replaced by the serviceman. He put the machine in a test mode and pressed a code to try the operation while the drawer was open. I witnessed the lid closing properly. Now it appears that the other actuator is faulty. To save an extremely expensive service call, how can I put the machine in test mode and verify the actuator operation with the drawer open?


To test the lid operation first pull the drawer forward of the cabinet\015\012by depressing the lugs on each side rail and pulling the drawer\015\012forward. Then go into diagnostic mode. Once there press power once and\015\012the lcd will display "H ... Dishwashers

I have a Bosch dishwasher and the upper arm that spins and dispenses water has come off. There is a bracket on the back wall with 2 protruding pieces and an open whole in the middle which seems like the water comes out of it. There are 2 metal "clips" on the side of this braket which seems like the plate part of the spining arm should be able to attach to it.. I cannot figure out how..Any helo would be apprecated..


On Bosh dishwasher you just slide the upper arm vertically until it snaps in place. The arm attachment will snap automatically into the clips, onto upper dishrack, unless the upper arm is damaged ... Dishwashers
