Having problems with your Samsung DMR78AHS Builtin Dishwasher ?

Samsung DMR78 dishwasher makes a grinding noise at the beginning of the wash cycle as well as the rinse cycle. Also comes up with the code 9E on occasion.


Answers :

Check the brackets that hold the top rack for any broken plastic brackets. My dishwasher was making the same noise and after noticing the broken plastic pieces I pulled out the dishwasher put it on its side removed a white panel on the bottom that is attached with two screws, removed the drain line and inside there were two plastic tabs from the broken bracket. Once those were removed the grinding noise stopped. The bracket holding the drain hose can be removed with a pair of pliers.

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?


Hi. This may well be a pump issue, or an obstructed hose assembly, as well. Your symptoms are indicating that the impeller may be damaged.

I have a Bosch Dishwasher Model # SHU43C that is not washing properly. Some dishes are not being cleaned if we don't pre-scrub or rinse. There are no error codes on the panel. During the cycle I hear the pump motor starting and stopping repeatedly on about 1 second intervals. I suspect it may be starved for inlet water. I checked the inlet water line and it is clear. We use well water that occassionally has some iron sediment in it and it plugged the inlet water screen for our washing mach


Hi,\015\012It is very possible that the screen is plugged...most inlet valves have a screen just like your washer does. I would at least remove the hose/pipe and check the flow...and check for a screen. \015\012Also the solenoid can get j ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

Global 450 dishlex dishwasher. Had the handle replaced 2 months ago. After that the ready light did not switch off as before. Now it only rinses. When you set the normal wash cycle the lights for Pre Wash, Wash and Rinse all come on. Pots cycle, the Pre Wash, Wash, Rinse and Dry all light up together, hence the machine thinks it up to that stage of the cycle. Can this be repaired or not. The machine is approx. 12 -14 years old.

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

There is a pool at the bootom of my dishwasher when the wash cycle is completed. When doing "Rinse Only", I could hear something come on immediately following the rinse but nothing seemed to happen. I pulled the Dishwasher out and the drain tube is set up so that it immediately goes upward a few feet before it eventualy goes back down to the drain. I noticed that there is water in the tube right next to the Dishwasher before it makes that climb. I'm wondering what all this means...

Hi! We just installed our LG LDF8812WW built in dishwasher. We ran our first cycle and after the wash cycle the dishwasher displayed error code OE. I read that it meant there is a problem with the drainage, and to check the hose if it is kinked. Well, the hose is not kinked and we have no idea why it would have a problem with the draining. We have the hose set up per the installation instructions. How can we check to for something clogged? Any suggestions?

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

Noisy dishwasher My dishwasher is about 2 years old and about 98% of the time it makes a very loud growl/rumbling noise in the wash and rinse cycles. I have checked to make sure that it is not clogged and open the door during the cycle but can't pinpoint where the noise is coming from. Sometimes it runs with no noise but that is not usually the case. Any thoughts?


This is a known issue for GE dishwashers and may be similar for other\015\012models too.  The fix is simple.  The noise is due to\015\012vibration of the arm for the middle sprayer.  Just secure it with\015\012a tie wrap or wire and th ... Dishwashers

In particular the stainless, but also some of the glassware comes out filmy and cloudy as if the detergent did not rinse off properly. The detergent I use is Cascade Advanced Power.

I removed and checked the bottom "L" filter(clean), the wheel (moves freely, not dirty), and the grey in line filter screen on the intake hose,( clean also).
