Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

Powdery residue on some dishes, will not wash off. Repairman said it was due to warter temp, but have tries heat & Anti bacteria and still persists. Could it be chemical build up because I was using a no phosphate detergent(Finish)? Repairman also suggested I use Citric acid to clean dishwasher tub and element. Could this just be hard water?

Meile G 1534 new dishwasher was installed by plumber on friday, it completed its first cycle fine , however when the next cycle started it makes a horrible dry grinding sound from the cabinet/ door and does not seem to be pumping water. i use tank water


Wondering if you called the plumber who installed it. \015\012\015\012Check if the water tank is not empty or tap is closed. It could be the inlet valve of dishwasher trying to open up or the detergent dispenser door solenoid.\015\0 ... Dishwashers

What is the best dishwashing soap to use in an Asko dishwasher? I have been using an environmentally friendly powder that I buy at my local King Soopers, but lately, some powdery white residue remains on plastic glasses. I remember my salesperson telling me to use powder not gel or liquid. Is that correct? I also use Rinse Aid regularly.

Water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher. I pulled the dishwasher out, blew through the drain tube, disconnected the drain tube and felt around inside. Ok there. The dishwasher has not been in use for 4 months, due to low hot water flow. I replaced a clogged valve today and restored water flow, and I'm wondering if non-use causes a problem with dishwashers?


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Is there

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".


Heat that is retained in the dishes is largely responsible for drying\015\012in this dishwasher. Since plastics do not retain heat very well, they\015\012will not dry as well as glasses, ceramics or metal dishes. Rinse aid\015\012must be used so that ... Dishwashers

PDW9280J10SS dishwasher has been in use for about 3 years. The control panel is not working properly. I use the up/down arrows and it turns on heated dry etc. When I push the heated dry button, it changes the lights to the different cycles (which is what the arrow keys used to do). The normal wash light won't come on, the only setting that seems to wash a full cylce is antibacterial. It seems like something burned out. What should I be looking at as a possible cause/fix. Unfortunately, I don't h

Bosch dishwasher SHU3032 UC/14. The soap dispenser does not open. In the past I've used dishwasher magic or similar to clean the dishwasher of hardwater deposits and that solved the problem. The cover opens and closes manually. The springs seem fine. I removed the door skin and the linkages look good. I checked the resistance on the Wax motor and it is with in spec, approximately 2150ohms. I 've watched the cycle and the wax motor never seems to actuate. I put my meter on th

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

The dishwasher has three arms in it. The top and bottom arm do not rotate. The middle arm rotates fine. The arms will move when manually munipulated but do not spill while the dishwasher is on. There was a loud grinding the first time the dishwasher was used and it seemed to work fine but after about two months of use the arms will not rotate.


Sounds like maybe some rinsing salt was spilled when the salt reservoir was filled the first time (or broken glass, this always used to be an issue in catering) and got pumped through, lodging in the gap between the arm and it's mounting. this can ro ... Maytag Dishwasher

Maytag dishwasher #33323190JG Many of the dishes come out with a white-ish coating. I usually end up using an SOS pad to scrub it off.

I've used Dishwasher Magic a couple of times within the last two weeks but the problem remains

Asko dishwasher model DW 20.3 whichi s without a doubt the worst dishwasher I have ever had. The low water usage is the only plus -- and why we bought it since we have septic. Anyhow, we have a persistant "funk" (bad, rotten smell) in the dishwasher that gets on and in all of our dishes and glasses and china... it is nauseating. I have tried everything, including all of the recommendations to (1) use a very small amount of detergent (2) get biodegradable detergent (3) use more rinse agent (4)

SMU50e32SK dishwasher showing E06 in display after a few seconds. Dishwasher has one Main Power PCB and one control unit PCB in the front. Info: Main PSU PCB has been shifted due to overvoltage. All sensor checked, seems to be ok after this has been shifted. I don't think the induction motor(big pump) has been affected due to the relays in front. Could it be the Control PCB in the front or maybe the small drain PUMP. Well some of you properly now what E06 is referring to on this model.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Hi, I have an LG LDS4821 dishwasher and it appears to stop working properly. The dishes don't seem to be cleaned at all. It seems like the spray arms are not spraying the dishes as the dishes are still dry/dirty after a normal wash cycle. I did notice that the detergent was used during the wash, and a trail of white residue was at the bottom of the tub. I can hear water pumping into the dishwasher, but when I opened it during a wash cycle, there was a puddle of water at the bottom of the

I have an Asko 1606 dishwasher. I had a new hot water tank installed in my house, it seems that with the water being turned back on that the black hose from the outlet side of the solenoid has come adrift (not from the solenoid but the other end), it seems that it has to be reconnected to an opaque coloured tank on the side of the machine, is that correct? re Wayne

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks
