Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?

I own the Siemans SL34A006UC dishwasher which had the recall repair completed. Now it doesn't work right. The unit goes through any of the cleaning choices but when it comes time to drain, the unit stops for a few seconds, swishes water for a couple seconds, stops again, then swishes for a couple seconds, stops and then goes back in to regular cleaning mode until the timer reaches zero. At each drain cycle, it does the same thing earlier mentioned 3 times in a row, then back to washing. The unit

Child Lock light glows without pressing Energy Saver Dry button for four seconds. Cannot turn off by pressing Engery Saver Dry button for four seconds. Turning off main power and turning back on doesn't solve problem. But turning off main power for extented period, over night, and turning back on does fix proble for a very short period but Child Lock does come back on by itself. Is replacing the Console Assembly the only fix? Is there some button sequence to disable Child Lock altogher?

I have a sears pressure washer, model 580752300. The pump on the underside vibrated lose and broke a couple screws. It came off and the oil drained out. I replaced the screws and it's ready to go except I can't find out how much replacement oil to put back in. Sears has larger containers but won't tell you how much oil to put in. However, there's a pricey pre-measured container they want to make you buy. Anybody know how much oil goes in that pump?

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same. It will build a small amount of pressure, spray for a few seconds, then the pressure dropps to almost nothing. Any help ap

Dishwasher FDB4315LFC0 Error code ER uo Second time it has happened. First time, a repairman came and said I needed a new "vent assembly", but I asked if he could "un stick it," so he took it apart and fiddled with it, and it worked for about a month. Now the error code is back, and he warned that if it came back, I should have it replaced. I've only had this NEW machine 10 months -- this shouldn't happen, right? Any suggestions? Thanks.

My Kitchenaid ModelKUDI01TJBL0 only leaks at initial start up. Just after the water fills, the first few seconds of the wash cycle.

The float seems to be working, not too much water in the bottom. I am stumped. Although I do feel that it has something to do with the level of the water being too high, when the arm starts turning, it makes a
