Having problems with your Viking Dishwashers ?

My Viking dishwasher won't fill with water. The motor seems to be running but no water enters the chamber. It's Sunday morning so I'm not able to get a repair person here. I got a response that said ''The ventilators are blocked. Turn it off and have the motor checked'' i was hoping for instructions on how to unblock the ventilators or clean it out. I have a house full of people for the weekend and would love to get this thing back up before Monday when a repair person could come. Any suggestion

My Kenmore Elite UtraWash Dishwasher won't drain completely. We have checked the hoses (water supply and drain connected to the disposal) - both are free of obstructions. We have taken the whole thing apart but can't get the plastic cover off to access the motor or "garbage disposal thingy" inside the dishwasher. All of the bolts were taken out, but it was still firmly attached. Didn't want to force it and potentially make the problem worse. Any suggestions before I call Sears Repair people

Motor removal Our dishwasher (Model LDS 5811WW) has LE come up when you turn it on. We were told by LG that it needs a new motor...so how do we get one? Also do you have any instructions as to properly getting it out? The clsest repair person suggested is 1 hr. from us and it would cost 3/4 of what the diswasher cost originally.

How do I get this sediment out of my water heater. I have never attempted any repair on a water heater so please be very elementary. Can I put Clr or limeaway in the tank to disolve? Thanks slecht

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person replaced the timer control board. Could this be the same problem reoccuring? I have also tapped and cleaned the water float as described by GE website.

Pressure Once I have the powerwasher started and going (water to it before starting) i can't get it to go to full pressure it will prime up like it's going to go to full pressure give me just a shot of full pressure then go back down to probably half pressure and remain there then prime again for a second then back a coninues cycle! Maybe there's a seal or something somewhere I should look at. Hose and pressure from house is good, the seal whee the hose attaches to the bottom of the washer is ne

I have a haier dishwasher model WQP12 AFM, I've replaced the wash pump motor and drain pump (they had been damaged with water after last repair person didn't put widget around drain hose which split and water accumulated on bottom). It well for about two weeks, then it would not go through it's cycle and I noted water not heating up. Have checked element with meter, thats fine, I replaced timersince it wasn't going through its cycle and that has not changed anything. Any suggustions?? Cheers

I recently bought a house (appliances came with it). The dishwasher is model #HSD2504J01WW. It does not get the dishes even slightly clean. There are food particles on all items, even glasses which had no food in/on them. I have made sure the waterhose to the dishwasher is wide open so enough water flows to it. I have run vinegar through a cycle....I am not sure how old this model is, the previous owner had the house for 4 years and it was here then. I do not want to spend alot repairing it,


Hi,The symptoms that you are giving could be caused by a number of different things...and by what you are saying I would even suspect multiple issues there.Spray arms are probably filling with crud, which after setting for awhile re ... Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

I just finished a service call for my 5312UC/UC12. The tecnician says he saw water leaking under neath the machine but hoses were secure and no visible crack to the motor housing, The machines pump works but very little water is actually put into the tub, hence no dishwashing. This technician says that this is a repair that most technicians avoid because it takes a long time and costs alot and violated some sort of warranty. He recommend replacement after only 7 years!

2-yr old troy-bilt pressure washer with honda gcv160 engine. seems to run well, but when trigger is pulled get full pressure for less than 5 seconds before reducing to house water pressure. when left running, looks a black plastic pressure relief valve starts blasting hot water. appreciate whatever insight you can give.

It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pre ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Often had to press 'Start' up to 5 times to get it going. All lights light up but then go out. Occasionally the pump would run for a minute or so then whole shooting match would close down. Recently we were lucky and it filled with water but sadly disappointed when it closed down again. 8 people in the house so had to do the dishes in the sink (again!!). Plenty of helpers and a glass or two of wine so things weren't that bad. Not good for Dishlex though especially when others say theirs are

KitchenAid dishwasher: KUDS01FL - I have had to replace the fuse every year and now I can't even get through on cycle with the fuse going. It is now dead again! It almost makes it through the full cycle and then stops (fuse blows)- no power - and there is some water left in the bottom which I have to physically remove. I spent a fortune on repairs every year since I bought it and would like to try to avoid another charge. I appreciate any help that you can offer. Thank you, Carol


I would check the pump. It may be slightly jammed or have debris which is causing it not to fully move or cause it to move very hard popping the breaker.

I have a McCulloch H.P. power jet cleaner 1300 and when i switch the device on the motor starts running but the pressure is not building up so no water is coming out of the pressure washer gun. We bought the device in 1999. Or alternatively is there anywhere in the UK to get the repairs carried out? Many thanks Michele.

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.
