Having problems with your Viking DFUD042 Built-in Dishwasher ?

We are going to remodel our kitchen & were wondering which brands were better in terms of performance and lack of repairs. we are considering Viking, GE Monogram, Thermador, and Kenmore Pro. We are open to other brands as well. Thank you.


Answers :

My parents have a place in Rhinelander & my brother has a place a little north of there. They have had nothing but problems with people they've hired to do various things such as roofing, chimney work, building a deck or painting the basement. It's gotten to the point that I wish they would just spend the money to hire someone from Milwaukee & haul them up there to do the work. I think it's a known thing about contractors up there.

Opened the door of a kenmore elite 66516493300 and heard a loud bang. Then the doo fell open hard. Now when I open the door it wants to fall straight down fast. I see no springs in the parts list but assume that something counterbalances the door. Do you know what's srong and can I fix it myself? Thank you, Peter M. Bonadio

I have a brand new GE disherwasher GLDA690. When I open it and then shut it the NOrmal Wash button and the machine turns on. There is no way to shut it off unless I hit the reset button and then it drains and shuts down in a minute or so. But anytime I open and shut the door the machine starts. Why? Thanks

I just bought this house with this dishwasher built in. I have pushed the door shut, pressed the heat dry button to lock the door and pressed the start button. Nothing happens. Now I can't even get the lights on front to turn off. The lock button flashes as though the door is open, but its not as far as I can tell. I have to press the latch in to open the door. I'd like to use it... any ideas. Its a Kenmore Elite model # 665 17052 402. Thank You

I have a Kenmore 665.13873 Pro dishwasher about a little over 3 years old. I never know when the sosp dispenser is going to open and sometimes when it does open, the pack is still in tack and unused , even when I used the powder, it did the same thing. My glasses are always cloudly looking. I use the Cascade action packs. I have never been satisfied with this dishwasher although it is suppose to be top of the line. I paid a little over 1,300 for it. It is very quiet which I like, but I neve

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks


These dishwashers have a safety feature. The door has to be closed within 3 seconds of pushing the start button. If the cycle is interrupted at all by opening the door or pushing something while started you will have to push the start button to resum ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Kenmore 17369 When cycle starts... it sounds terrible (crackly sounding).... doesn't sound like the water is coming into the dishwasher. If I add water to the machine during a rinse cycle...it will wash and drain on its own.... Then I hit cancel. Please help.. I can't locate the owners manual.. Do you know where I can get one.. I understand that you can open the bottom up and see if there is anything lodged in the bottom of the dishwasher. Please help! thanks Cheryl


The problem is your water inlet valve. If you remove the panel at the bottom of the dishwasher you will see\015\012either a copper hard pipe, or a flexible steel hose leading into the\015\012water inlet valve.BE SURE TO CUT OF ... Kenmore 24 in. 17362 / 17364 / 17369 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher smoking Started cycle, everything seemed fine. Opened it to put something in and when I closed it to restart it sounded strange. Then the smoke starting pouring out of it and it smelled like something electrical burning. I immediately turned the wall switch off. It is a Kenmore, not sure of the model at this time. Is this a common occurence like if a specific part went out? Thanks for your time.

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even though the dishes seemed to be clean on the two occasions that the dishwasher has leaked. Only need a somewhat simple machine- I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what brands I should research if buy is the conclusion. Thanks.


At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement. Replacing the valve is a simple and inexpensive fix but don't bother going ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore 587 I have a Kenmore 587.1414 that is only 2 years old. I can hear it filling with water and then after a while it will drain, but does nothing in between. After the cycle has ran completely, I can open it and the dishers have never got wet and the soap door is open but the soap has just ran down the side of the door. What could be wrong? Motor gone out?


I think you are right. That would be the most obvious answer. Some motors are warrantied for 2 years or longer. ... Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

Frigidaire model F71C12PHS0 is not washing, it goes through the cycle and when the door is opened the soap container is open with soap still in it. We have run it with the door open to see if it is spraying and it is. The heat is working because when we open it at the end of cycle it is hot. Yet soap is still there and dishes are not clean. Thanks to anyone who can help me trouble shoot this.
