Having problems with your West Bend 77203 Electric Can Opener, Metallic ?

How can I repair a defective cutting lever?

\015 Bottom line is: this can opener must be defective because it doesn't work at all. There is very little up-and-down movement in the piercing lever and neither my husband nor I can get the cutting blade to pierce the lid of any type of can. Once when we were attempting to figure out what was wrong, we were able to cut off the bottom of an empty tuna can, but nothing since then.\015\012\015\012Since I don't often need a can opener, I made the mistake of not using it right away, and now the return period has expired, so I can't do anything except throw the thing in the trash....basically a brand-new item and those dollars down the drain. I know some people are very happy with this product, so I believe I must have a defective unit. There is no troubleshooting guide in the manual.\015\012\015\012So, word to the wise: Use your product right away to make sure it works and keeps on working! I'm going back to the manual can opener. If anyone has suggestions for getting it to work, I'll hang onto it for a few weeks, but I'm not optimistic.\015

Leaking Dishwasher seems to be leaking. Otherwise it's performing fine. I have laminate floors, and there are water seeping out along the seams of the flooring area near the dishwasher. The dishwasher is captured by the floor (dishwasher was installed first then floor was put in at 1/2" higher level), so we can't pull it out to check where the leak is coming from. Can dishwasher be repaired from the inside w/out removing it from where it is? Only way to pull it out seem to be cutting a part of

My dishwasher works except is does not appear to be getting water. David psr responded: Most likely the water valve is defective or stopped up with calcium deposits. In either event, you probably need to replace the water fill valve. Not a terribly expensive nor difficult job on most dishwashers. Do I call a plumber, appliance store repair department or look for a local handy man?


I agree that the fill valve may be bad or clogged. You can fairly easily remove the valve yourself if you are somewhat handy and then take it apart and clean it. I doubt if the old valve is electrically shot but it is possible. Cleaning it out may ... GE Dishwashers

Perhaps I am late to the party, but is GE having a current issue with Cascade over their detergents resulting in SmartDispense technology clogging their dishwashers units? We did not mix detergents, but today's GE serviceman says we're looking at $200 in labor and repair on our RDW8600 series, due to severe coagulation. Seems this is closer to a product defect, and one of the company's should be footing the bill.

My small boy fell on my open dishwasher door (Bosch) and now it's opening slightly in mid cycle and cutting off. It's not leaking or anything and works perfectly if I clamp it closed. When it's opened down then, it's very slightly slanted downwards. I have taken it 2 a repair shop twice and they've failed to sort it saying that its the sensor may need to be replaced but I think it's the hinges are strained. What should I do?

I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy.

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.

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?


Problems associated with water from the kitchen sink back filling into the dishwasher are caused by the drain line on the dishwasher not having a high end loop. In simple terms, the dishwasher line is too low and is providing a path for the water to ... Maytag Dishwashers
