Maytag dishwasher #33323190JG Many of the dishes come out with a white-ish coating. I usually end up using an SOS pad to scrub it off. Three weeks ago a repair man replaced the heating element due to the recall but that didn't help it. He suggested trying "Dishwasher Magic." I've used Dishwasher Magic a couple of times within the last two weeks but the problem remains

I have a 7 yr old GE Tritron XL dishwasher that I rarely use. Last time I used it was almost 2 months ago. A week ago I noticed a horrible rotting stench coming from the inside. I poured 1 cup of vinegar in the base and let it sit overnight. Next morning I ran the dishwasher with detergent but no dishes. Odor still there. Checked bottom of dishwasher for food - nothing there (I prewash dishes before putting them into dishwasher). Added 2 cups of vinegar, ran dishwasher on hottest setting. Sti

I was told by a repairman that the seals around the motor swelled because I had gone on vacation for two weeks and not used the dishwasher. He charged $85 to turn the motor manually and restart the dishwasher. The dishwasher is 5 years old. Does this mean I can never leave for two weeks at a time and come home to a working dishwasher?


No. The unit most likely had some debris stuck in the macerator. The seals are water lubricated and its possible that some detergent dried between the seals. Detergent is a lot like glue when it dries. You are probably using the factory recommend ... GE Dishwashers

When I depress the start button, the timer is clicking to engage and begin the cycle, however, the dishwasher does not start. Other times, there is no noise whatsover when I press the start button and neither does the dishwasher start. If I don't use it for say 2-3 weeks and try again, it starts working for a period of a few months, but then the same thing happens again down the track. This has occurred about 4 times.

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago. Ideas?

When we do not use the dishwasher for a week or more water seems to back up into the tub. The water has a foul smell to it and can be as much as an inch or so deep. The dishwasher drain hose is attached to an insinkerator disposal. By the way this dishwasher is only a couple of months old and we have had to have it serviced three times. No one has been able to explain the water accumulation and it can not be demonstrated unless the washer sits unused for a while.

Control Panel won't let me hit the start button. The dishwasher is a little over a year old and is used at most once a week. The blue light on the bottom right of the dishwasher seems to no longer light up. The control panel will let me select the wash, but the start button and time indicator does not light up. Not sure if this a real defect and if just a simple exchange of the front control panel will fix the problem? Already tried resetting the circuit breaker and that did not help. Than

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that's just over 1 year old and I use it a couple times a week. I turned it on last night and went in another room. appox 30 minutes later my daughter came in and noticed the soap suds all over the kitchen floor, the inside was all sudzy. It was in the wash cycle so I turned it off just by opening the door for overnight and restarted this morning and after about 20 minutes (still in the wash cycle) the suds started oozing out so I that's where I'm at now. Thanks.

Hi - bought this dishwasher 1 year ago yesterday (it figures). Discovered last night that it hadn't drained properly the last time I used it (maybe 5 days before). There was about 2" of soapy-feeling water in the bottom of the cabinet. I put it through another cycle and the same thing happened. I only run it maybe every couple weeks. Can you tell me how to fix it?

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.
