Having problems with your Whirlpool 24 in. DU940QWD Built-in Dishwasher ?

Dishwasher problem Hi there. The upper shelf in my dishwasher doesn't seem to clean, but the lower shelf does. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the arm or the incoming water supply. How would I check? Thanks. -Liz S.

Hi make sure the top draw is pushed all the way back s there is a little rubber o ring that the shelf has to push in to
I'm sure the problem has been solved by now, but I have had this problem. The upper arm has no motor turning it. Water from the lower unit jets up into the arm and is forced out the tips of the arms in angled jets that cause the arm to rotate. If food scraps get caught in the jets, no water can get out and there is no action causing the arm to turn. (I found watermelon seeds in mine.) It is usually easy to remove the arm and clean out the tips.

Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher (Enr SMS53E12GB/01 FD 9002) bought in July 2010. Error code 15 and "Check Water Supply" light on at same time. Have checked in-line filter in tap connection and all clear, water pressure OK, no kinks/twists in supply hose. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'll have to call Customer Service in the end as it's outside of my problem-solving ability, but would like to check whether there's a known reset or fix I can try before I call.

The inside of the dishwasher used to sparkle & clean the dishes very good, now the dishes look dirty & inside looks dull with a white film. I have tried cleaning filters & taking arms offs to check for blockage, making sure the Jet Dry dispenser is properly filled, the hose going to the dishwasher does not appear to be kinked, how would I check inside the dishwasher to see if it's kinked there? Do you have any other suggestions? please help!!!!

My dishwasher so my dishwasher seemed to have quitworking during a cycle. like breaker triped or something. i checked the breaker and thats fine. it seams like its hard wired in though.

The dishwasher is built in and it seems decently old its a kenmore ultra wash and it has like 10 buttons for the differend cycles on the left and a

Hi! We just installed our LG LDF8812WW built in dishwasher. We ran our first cycle and after the wash cycle the dishwasher displayed error code OE. I read that it meant there is a problem with the drainage, and to check the hose if it is kinked. Well, the hose is not kinked and we have no idea why it would have a problem with the draining. We have the hose set up per the installation instructions. How can we check to for something clogged? Any suggestions?


I actually own an LG LDF8812 myself, except mine is stainless steel, not white. So be it. :-)\015\012\015\012Anyway, it sounds like you have just unboxed the unit and it is brand new, not just new to you. I am also ... LG LDF8812 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

I previously cleared food debris from the drainage pump area (including under the pump cover), checked the spray arms and checked the water supply was getting as far as the long in-take pipe.

My LG LDF7810ST dishwasher does not spray water from the middle or upper spray arms, therefore the dishes don't wash properly. Even when I ask for a top load only, the bottom spray arm is the only one moving (which I would expect that it shouldn't move at all since I've requested a top load only) I checked the spray arms as best I can to make sure that they're not clogged.

IE message Getting an IE message on dishwasher. Water is coming into the tank and heating, but after about 5 minutes, it kicks into an IE error. We have checked the water inlet and the spray arms and everything appears okay. I have read the comments about checking the float, but how do you do this? Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Smeg dishwasher After a wash cycle there are small bits of residue left on the dishes (mostly top shelf). I've cleaned the machine with a dishwasher cleaner, the filters have been done too, I've checked the rotor arms rotate - that's Ok as well. I have emailed SMEG but have as of yet not response. Any clues please.


Riff...not sure what the bits are...first, they may be food crumbs or the like. Dishwashers have macerators to grind up food particles but they have no really good way to get rid of them in the wash cycle. Scrape plates of any solids before loading ... Smeg DWI614 Built-in Dishwasher

After a regular dishwashing cycle, our dishes and glasses are not getting clean. They are left with a white film. We have checked and all holes in the spray arms are open. We have tried a rinse agent, too. The upper arm gets blocked when we spin it when open ... probably not spinning well in the cycle. any ideas to fix it would be great!


Hi Please check if something is blocked near the top spray arm, also make sure that all holes are open. Use a sharp metal pin to clean the holes on the top spray arm. Make sure the water pressure i ... KitchenAid KUDR24SE Built-in Dishwasher

My SB908WL Westinghouse dishwasher is tripping the switch when it goes to pump out the water. What are the likely problems and solutions please! If anyone has some expertise that would be great. (I have recently checked the soldering on the main panel and touched one point up, the rest are fine it seems). The element is working as there is hot water in the unit. We have small kids so maybe something is jammed in there? How do I get access to check. All input helpful. Thanks!

I have a fridgidaire Gallery dishwasher model # FDB949GFS2. It was not spraying water while running, so I checked for clogged wash arms and hoses etc. So I replaced the motor assembly and now I hear the motor running, it fills with hot water but it is still not circulating water. Is there something else I need to check. Thanks Tom

My Whirlpool Gold dishwasher has been wonderful until recently. In the last 2-3 weeks, the top rack of dishes does NOT get clean - AT ALL. It appears that the spray arm is not moving, or at least not moving much. What can I do myself to check this out and possibly take things apart to see if something is clogged?

I have a Precision Wash System Ultra Quiet I, model # FBD421RFR3 and something is not rinsing properly. There's a fine white powder on the dishes after the cycle.
