I have this dishwasher and it won't drain - I LOVE this dishwasher. It cleans better than any I've ever had. I can't remember how old it is so don't know if its worth fixing. Nobody seems to like their new dishwashers so I'd almost rather fix my old one that has never let me down...but its black...and all my other appliances are stainless....

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

I have a Magtag dishwaher that is leaking out of the bottom right hand corner somewhere. It is at least 10 years old, works great otherwise. What should I do ? Is it an easy fix? Is it worth it to fix it or toss it?


I will assume the leak is at the front on one of the corners of the door. We had this problem and it appeared to be caused by someone mistakenly placing too much weigh on the door when it was open. Our solution was to bend the door back in the oppo ... Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

My G865 Miele dishwasher goes partway through the cycle then gets hung up and runs without advancing. We left it running when we left for vacation and it was still running when we came back. I'm assuming it is the timer mechanism. The dishwasher is ten years old but has been run only every other day or so. Is it worth fixing or is it better to replace?

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks


Hi If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liqu ... GE Tritonr XL GSD6260JCC Dishwasher

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

I have a dishlex 750 eco. The control panel has not lights, but the internal dishwasher light still works. The repair guy said it needs a new circuit board, and not worth fixing. He could sell a reco one cheaper, although this machine is old it has hardly done any work. any thoughts? thanks dave..


The tech is quite correct, with this unit, the best thing to do is nothing. You need to put any prospective money that was going to be used for repair into NEW one with a full warranty, that way you can be sure of a reliable unit.\015\012\015\ ... Dishwashers

We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher model number KUDK03CTSS3. It's only about 3 years old, but the dishes on the top rack do not get clean. We thought maybe it was water not coming out the top, or food stuck somewhere, but do not know how to fix it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing. The seals appear to be OK to touch and slightly pressing the door inwards does not reduce the leak. What could be the reason and is it worth repairing? The inside looks really good for its age and I am trying to extend its life at least a few years with minimal cost. Please advise.


When one of the sprayer arms develops a leak and sprays water in a downward direction toward the bottom of the door it can leak because it's not made to be sprayed on the seal in that direction. You might get wet but hold the arms still and watch for ... Dishwashers

10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even though the dishes seemed to be clean on the two occasions that the dishwasher has leaked. Only need a somewhat simple machine- I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what brands I should research if buy is the conclusion. Thanks.


At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement. Replacing the valve is a simple and inexpensive fix but don't bother going ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

SHU 5316 UC dishwasher by bosch. I think it is from about 1998 or 99. It blew a circuit breaker yesterday. I reset the circuit braker, but it won't even power on. It may have burned something out. We replaced the control board 2 years ago. Please tell us: 1. Is it worth fixing again, or just replace? 2. Any suggestios? Maybe the pump has shorted? THANKS SO MUCH!! Mark


Hi Mark -There's no internal fuse in this dishwasher, so if there's no power you may well be looking at a new control unit and probably another major component as well, depending on what caused the overload or short. The most likely ... Bosch SHU5316UC Dishwasher

I own a kitchenaid dishwasher that is only a few months old and I have this horrible smell on my dishes. I have noticed this also on our old dishwasher. What can it be? I have tried putting bleach and running a cycle but that does not seem to help. Can you tell me what it is? Should I change dishwasher soap or is it maybe my water.


I suspect your water supply is at fault. Sulfur and iron in the water will cause terrible smells. You may try using an additive like Lemi Shine with your detergent, but it will likely not help much. I would recommend having your water tested.... ... KitchenAid Dishwashers
