Having problems with your Sears 24 in. 14181 Built-in Dishwasher ?

How can I shut off the water supply to the dishwasher? It fills slowly with water from the top (while not running), and then water spills out over the kitchen floor. By pressing the 'Drain' button, the water will drain out, but I have to get to it before it floods. It takes about 4 hours for it to get to the overflow stage. It is a Jennair model, about 9 years old. We have a lot of limescale, it is probably time to replace it, but for the moment my main concern is to stop the leak. Thank you for


Answers :

Most water supply lines are attached to the hot water supply under the kitchen sink. If not it may be accessible from the basement somewhere under where the dishwasher is located.

Regarding the issue with the dishwasher, the inlet water valve is no longer closing because of the limescale that has built up inside. That is why it fills on it's own even when it's off. Instead of replacing the dishwasher you could just replace the inlet water valve if you want to get a few more years out of it.

When dishwasher drains the water not all the water is drained. Some stays standing at the bottom and starts getting an odor after awhile. This is a replacement dishwasher in a 35 year old house. How important is the air release part in the draining situation? I was told by someone that the newer dishwashers have the air release part which was not hooked up on this dishwasher when installed last year. Are there some other possibilities of things that can be checked. Model Number is DU

Broken dishwasher It started when my dishwasher flooded my kitchen. I drained it and turned it on, it was fine. then it happened again. I have drained it then when I went to turn it on again it just sounds like it is running with no water. If I put water into the bottom it will drain but it will not fill up. I bought this house 3 years ago I am unsure how old the dishwasher, do I need to get a new one?

Hi there My dishwasher (Miele G975 PLUS) drain light keeps coming on and the water won't drain. I can manually drain the water and the machine will then start again but as soon as it gets to the drain/rinse part of the cycle, the problem recurs. I have removed the non-return valve and it was clear of blockages so I am now out of options. The machine is only 4.5 years old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

My Bosch Classixx (about 10 years old) dishwasher won't fill The problem has only started since I pulled it out and cleaned! The programme sounds are as normal but no water enters the machine. I detected a small leak on the inlet pipe and tightened that. The machine drains when I add water manually though it has made a lot of gurgling noises for some time now when draining.

My dishwasher after the cycle is over still have a bit of dirty water remaining on the bottom. After few hours is getting more and more dirty water. I have a feeling that some kind of the valve is not working correctly which allows the water from the sink drain to come back? Am I right? Is it a big re[pair or marginal? My dishwasher is about 20 + years old and still the greates one I owned ( I had before Bosh ). I own the dishwaser for last 4 years but previous owner loved it and never repair

Bosch Dishwasher My 8 year old Bosch is not draining. It will not go past 1 minute on the rinse cycle, and 13 minutes on the regular cycle. For the past few weeks I have noticed a lot of bubbles in the bottom of the dishwasher after it is done, but it was draining. Now it's full of water and will not go past the 1 minute mark. I need to fix this, I can fix this, I just need some expert advise on how to do this myself. Thanks!

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom.

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either.

I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

I need to winterize the built-in Kenmore dishwasher in a mountain cabin where winter temperatures will drop below freezing. The unit is at least 10-15 years old, but I don't have the model number handy. My approach to the cabin water pipes in general will be to gravity-drain them and then blow out remaining water by adding and releasing air pressure. RV antifreeze will go into all P-traps. When it comes to the dishwasher, my plan is to remove the drain hose from the P-trap and drain it as mu
