Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

I have an SKT51 series (silver edition) Bosch free-standing dishwasher. The problem is that a few days ago, when the washing was over and I started emtpying the dishwasger I found in the dishwasher a grey plastic part with the number 5603000027 on it. Obviously, it got loose from somewhere, but I cannot find where it was. The washing quality since then is definitely lower, food remaining on the dishes, which are not properly dried. What could be wrong?

My Maytag MDBH965AWW Legacy Series 300 is making a loud grinding noise. I took off the lower spray arm and other parts below it to see if something was lodged near the chopper blade. What I found was broken plastic pieces from the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. It appears that the chopper blade is coming in contact with the filter/flowplate assembly and therefore the chopper blade is chopping away at the bottom of the filter/flowplate assembly. What do you think the problem is? Ho

I want to remove the white plastic wheel that propels water into the circulating arms. It is held with one screw which I cannot seem to be able to loosen. This white plastic wheel has 2 small holes in the surface which are perhaps there for some special tool to hold the wheel stationary in order to loosen the screw holding this wheel in place. Underneath this gray plastic housing is the heating element. I want to remove it in order to clean accumulated deposits of gunk.

Kitchenaid Dishwasher model # KUDS25SHBS1 has started making noise. Noise happens when unit is draining so perhaps its the same mechanism that houses the grinder.

Noise is getting louder as more draining cycles are being utilized (i.e. as we use the machine more). Anyone have

I followed 'Mindcell's' advice on fixing my Kenmore QuietGuard 4 dishwasher, and I managed to clear out all the food particles that have accumulated. I suspect that is probably why the middle spray arm has not been very effective. However, in my repair, as I was screwing in the star screw that holds the cover of the foodscreen (the lower most star screw), I managed to overturn it and break it. Thus, the food screen is only held by a plastic clip, and from what I can gather, pressure from a

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.
