MDBH985AWS, I just purchased new-er dishwasher

\015 I just purchased new-er dishwasher MDBH985AWS. It was used as a store demo, so it was not used for washing dishes. I noticed the vent is on the left side and the insulation is covering the circular vent. Should it be covering the vent or no? I do mot have a picture of the left side so I am quite uncomfortable installing it since I worry that the steam leaving the dishwasher will destroy my cabinet's side panel. Im I seeing it the right way?\015

I just installed a new Kitchenaid dishwasher (Model KUDE60FVSS3). After filling with soap, closing the door and starting the machine, it fills with water, waits a couple of minutes and then I can hear low humming noices coming from down below. After opening the door it appears that neither spray arm has turned as if to wash. This dishwasher was purchased new a few years ago and kept in storage as our basement was being finished. This dishwasher has never completed one cycle. Any and all inf

I asked for a new machine and they said it's their policy to fix a machine that's been delivered. I think I have a lemon.

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

We recently purchased a new pump for our frigidaire gld4355rf dishwasher. The old one started making grinding noises. When we moved the dishwasher it had leaked due to a failure of an interior seal. Our new pump is now making the same grinding noise but it is not constant. When my husband adjusted the pump by using his hand when he got into a certain position the noise stops. We keep the screens clean. Is there an issue with the pump in this model?

I purchased a Bosch dishwasher and had it installed into my new kitchen. It is plumbed and it does not work, a reapair man said it needs a new motherboard. My issue is that Bosch can't seem to supply central Wi. with this part. The repair place put the order in two and onehalf months ago and still cannot give me a date about when the part will be in. I have owned this dishwasher for five months and have not been able to use it once!

My Maytag Dishwasher MDBH750AWW will not turn on. Pressing the key pad on the top front does not activate the controls. I traced the wiring and found it is active in the door latch assembly, which I recently replaced. Question: 1) If I purchase a new Control Panel exterior white key pad, which is linked to the interior Control Board, should that solve the problem? Or,2) if I purchase a new exterior Control Panel finger touch pad, and an interior Control Board, will that solve the proble

I have a Bosch SHX46A05UC14 dishwasher. The dishwasher is in a new home I just purchased. I tried to run the dishwasher on a normal cycle. However, when I push POWER and NORMAL CYCLE it makes a buzzing noise...and that's it. I opened the dishwasher and on the base of the dishwasher there was a screen that could be removed. I noticed that there was still some anti-freeze fluid in there (because the house was winterized). Could there be a simple solution to this problem?

LG Dishwasher I just purchase a new LG Dishwasher. The installer told me that the dishwasher can not be flush to the Kitchen cabinets because of the metal cases around the dishwasher and also it can not be aligned with the top and bottom of the cabinets because the door is too thick to give it clearance to open. I have had two other dishwashers in this spot and never had any issue. Thoughts? Thanks, Jen

Dishes in the upper rack no longer get cleaned. I've been using this dishwasher since 2004 (purchased new), and have not changed the way I loaded the dishes or the detergent. I called the Kitchen Aid help line, and the rep simply read the owner's manual to me (e.g., stand a glass of vinegar in the dishwasher and run a cycle), which did not address the problem. Any idea what I need to do? Thank you!

I just purchased an LDF6920. It does not dry the dishes. In fact, there is water remaining in the bottom, and all the dishes and drum and door are beaded with water. It suggests putting some sort of water removing chemical, but I have never owned a dishwasher that did not made some effort to dry the dishes. I have to hand dry or have spots on everything. I am very, very disappointed with my new, and expensive, purchase.


First off, there should not be any (visible) water standing in the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle is done.

I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy.

This has happened once before, and the repair person cleaned some kind of secondary filter, but I can't locate that filter on the parts diagram.

I purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher in either July or August 2009 from Best Buy. It is not cleaning all my dishes. I have tried 3 different types of soap--the packets that came with it; powder; and liquid hoping that it would work. I have loaded light and heavy. I have tried the normal and light settings with rinse, hot water or not. They are just not getting clean. And the dispensers are not totally emptying. I already had to have a new dishwasher sent because the first one was damaged on
