... Westinghouse Dishwashers

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

Problem: dishwasher (moel MDB6601AWW) will not run. The front panel has a light, between the "Delay 1-9" and "heated dry" buttons, and adjacent to small printed icon (looks like a tombstone with the number 3 inside). Last weekedn I shut off all the water in order to change a faucet, including the hot water feed to the washer. Now the fed to the washer is somewhat frozen -- I can only open it 1/8 turn. So, I wonder if my wife tried to run the machin with no water flow, and it shut itself dow

We have a KitchenAid dishwasher (KUDI01FLSS6) which has not been working properly for a long time. We have the dreaded green blinking light mystery. We understand that this could indicate several different problems. We have found that if we run the sink water until it is hot, then start the dishwasher, and then after ten minutes we open then shut the door, it will consistently run the full cycle perfectly. Does this give you any hint of what might be the problem component -sensor, element, the

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

My dishwasher starts and washes ok but appears to get very hot during the drying phase and then the two lights fast and eco flash warning of a heater problem. I suspect either the heater, thermostat or control PCB. As the rest of the cycle seems of and the water gets hot then I'm assuming the heater and thermostat are OK. When the dishwasher attempts to dry is when the problem starts. Did anyone find out what there fault was? Thanks

The water pipe in the wall behind the bathroom sink vibrates/knocks on the wall routinely. Opening the water spigot will show pulsing water, and ultimtely stop the vibrating. The noise started out maybe once or twice a day, and is now vibrating three or four times an hour. The house is new as of 2007 and the problem has only recently begun. Do I have to open up the wall and cushion the pipe, or secure it to a stud?
