Answers :

For what you pay for dishwashers its normally better to replace them
I need a "better" model #! It is located under your front bottom panel and contains 6 digits. Gaskets, per se, are not difficult to replace nor expensive (do it yourself). If you give me that info I can give you all the info you need for replacement. Most DW's don't have a gasket! If it is a leak problem, it is more likely the "float level" (contolling how muchthe tank fills) or a clog in the drain, the machine is, perhaps, just over filling? Gaskets is/are my business.

Hi there I purchased a Simpson Riviera 966 Dishwasher about 10 years ago and was very happy with it. All of a sudden water was flooding the kitchen from somewhere under the dishwasher, and not having the money to repair it at the time, it has just been sitting, and possibly the seals may need replacing. All electronic funtions seem OK on it however. Would it be possible to give me a quote on repairing the dishwasher - I HATE washing up !!!! My name is Hartley Cowderoy, and I Live at 65 Rosemount

We have a Bosch Diswasher Model SHX-46A05UC that we purchased three years ago. We have loved it! This week it started running a long long time and won't finish on its own. Also the santitized cycle is not working. We live in a remote mountain town and our local appliance repair man refuses to work on it because it is a Bosche and he hates them. Please help! Can we do something on our own before having to pull the dishwasher and take it out of town for repair? Thank you...Jackie

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

Our dishwasher, Model Automatic G572 SC runs, but does not drain. I have cleaned all the rotating sprayers, have made sure that the disposal is clear, and have checked the various parts in the base of the dishwasher. We had this problem a few years ago, but after letting the dishwasher sit for a few days, it corrected itself. I don't want to pay for the repair and heard that you can walk me through most simple problems. Help! Thanks.

I have a fisher & Pakel dishwasher and it appears to have brown a fuse inside the machine which means it does not work at all and the problem occurred during the wash cycle. This means the seal (which is a top piece that's lifted and lowered by two motors. When the seal is in the lowered position it creates a complete seal but it also locks the drawer (single drawer dishwasher) so it cannot be pulled out. I repaired the dishwasher two years ago.

Water is not flowing into the dishwasher and as a consequence it overheats. In the couple of weeks prior we noticed unusual noises and taking longer to complete washing.

I cannot find the salesslip from sears to see when we purchased the machine but I sus pect it was about 6 years ago. We are debating wther to have a service call, possibly including replac

Model no. MDB6100AWW. Just unloaded the dishwasher. Shut the door and immediately heard clicking (regular cadence). All indicator lights (arrow-shaped) for clean, dry, wash and heating delay were blinking. Opened the door, waited a few minutes, closed the door. Now, just the "Clean" and "6 Hour" arrow indicator lights and "Heated Dry" button light indicator are still blinking continuously. Cannot override. What's going on?

There seems to be an electrical fault in my dishwasher. It is a slimline candy dishwasher purchased only three years ago. Everytime I try to start it all the electricity goes in the downstairs of my house. I changed the fuse twice and it worked for a while only for the same thing to happen again. I also tried to turn off all other electical equipment downstairs to see if this made a difference, but it still didn't work. Would you have any idea what is wrong with it? Thanks. S. Byrne
