I have a 4 year old Maytag MDBH945AWW and the panel lights come on and I can select cycles... but the dishwasher wont start. I tried holding the start cancel button, tried turning the breaker off for a couple of hours, took the inner panel off the door and checked the latch, but its still wont start. Any other suggestions? If it needs a new control panel its probably better to just get a new similar dishwasher for $300, correct?

I have an Indesit IDL 42 dishwasher. It has entered a state in which it behaves like this: as soon as I turn it on, it starts swishing the water around (it doesn't pump it out) and it does that regardless of whether I press any buttons (I have tried Start, Reset, turning the program knob, no difference at all). When I open it in the middle of this cycle, the water drips, and there is plenty of water (about 1 in) at the bottom. I have checked the filter, it is clean. Can you please help?

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle.

For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,
