Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard - will not drain at end of cycle. After cycle is complete, water (not clean) sits at the bottom of the washer but I still unload the dishes and then turn the cycle dial around again - going past all the water heating and filling and washing - and land on the drain cycle, it will drain. Any ideas why it will not drain when I let a cycle run, but will drain once I cycle it through to the drain option?

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Upon selecting a wash cycle and closing the door the machine starts normally (heating water stage) but never clicks to allow water in and wash the dishes. Fails to advance to the wash cycle and just runs without doing dishes. There was water in the bottom after the last wash, filters are clean?

I have an FDS252RBS2 Frigidaire dishwasher. It's about four years old, and has always worked well. Now, no water appears to be entering. The dishes are dry and dirty at the end of the wash cycle. I removed the tower and the float, and both were clean. Is this a total disaster, or can it be fixed?

My dish washer is 4 years old and is not cleaning dishes or disolving soap. HO appears in the status window which my manuel says indicates a water heat delay. How can this water heat delay be repaired ? I couldn't find my actual dishwasher on your list. It is model FDB2810LDC1 multi speed precision direct wash system with speed clean technology.


The water heat delay indication could be caused by the fact that the heating element has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature. You should be able to tell if the element is g ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a 13 month old (Thanks Sears warranty!) Kenmore Portable Dishwasher Model 665.17769. It drains poorly, taking 2-3 times after load is completed running thru the ''cancel/drain'' cycle to clean it out. It is not getting dishes clean either, presumambly because the dirty water isn't being flushed out at cycle end and instead of rinsing with fresh water, it's still screwing with the dirty water. Manual doesn't offer any advice except to see if the hose is kinked (it isn't). I made sure nothi


Hello Linda it sounds like you may have a piece of glass or some other hard material in your drain pump which is partially blocking the draining process. Remove the hose in the base of the machine, then unscrew the drain pump and physically examine ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water prior to washing.


Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150. ... GE Hotpoint HDA3500N Dishwasher

I have gritty debris on the dishes, it appears the small bits left on the dishes before loading get broken down and rinsed onto them as grit again! The dishes are not spotless going in but they are scraped clean--i object to the waste of hand washing then dishwashing . I did run a load with no dishes and vinegar to clean it, the screen in the drain is clean, I don't know what is missing. Its like it doesn;t drain the dirty water away somehow

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

Gritty dishes My dishes are coming out of the wash gritty. It is as if food has been dried on them. As if the rinse water has particles in it and then they are left on every dish. I have used a dishwasher cleaner several times and I also use the rinse agent in the machine. Nothing is helping. It is getting worse.The inside of the dishwasher. mostly on the top, usually has food residue all over it at the end of every wash. Even the machine is dirty. I'm hand washing everything right now.

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Dirty dishes We have a built-in SMEG machine and it washes 75% of the dishes perfectly. However there is a build up of sandy'ish residue round the inside of the door (mostly on the ledge at the top) at the end of each wash and some of that sticks to the inside of glasses, cups and mugs. Have checked all the filters we can see and they are clean.

Ultra Wash Hi, When I got up this morning, I noticed the dishes were still dirty and dry??  The soap dispenser had popped open but that was about it.  I had some work done on it because it wasn't cleaning the dishes properly about a year ago and they replaced the motor.  While cleaning the kitchen last night, I heard it come on, but now that I think about it, I never actually heard the water start sloshing around. I don't have the owner's manual - I bought this house 3 years ago and I think the

Turns on, the entire cycle runs, but no water pumps through the sprayer. There is water present on the bottom....and I can here the water pumping in at the beginning of the cyle....but the dishes are not being 'washed' by the sprayers. I have disassembled and cleaned the entire inside and sprayers to no avail. Im thinking its a pump/motor issue but Im not sure because the sprayers spin, the heat comes on, the detergent dispenses....but no water is being sprayed. Thanks.

I own a GE Profile Built-in Dishwasher Model number is PDW7880G00SS, Serial number is FF7872828.  We have recently been having major cleaning issues with it, especially the top shelf i.e. the glasses.  There is always dried up debris on them.  We always run the water hot and run it on "added heat" cycle.  I was wondering if there is a filter, or an area in the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned out?  Even if I put perfectly clean dishes in there, they will come out dirty, which leads me to thin

There is a drain hose for your dishwasher that often gets clogged. Remove the drain hose and clean it out. reinstall the hose and your dishwasher will drain. The dishwasher should have a panel to remove and then comes out easily, just be careful not ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.
