I have a NEFF dishwasher model SD11XT1F about 18 months old. It smells. I've tried all the book solutions but the smell returns after a couple of days. I can get rid of it by mopping out the small amount of residual waterin the sump, so I'm wondering if it's bacteria in the salt solution reservoir. I've run a programme pumping the waste into a washing up bowl. The water from the first two cycles appears greeny-yellow. Is that OK? Can I clean out the salt somehow and start again, or is it a d

My SGS55M72AU/65 does not get rid of its drain water, although that wee pump in the bottom is clearly working (which I could see after removing filters and pump cover). There is no blockage near the drain pipe connection, so I infer there is a blockage somewhere inside the dishwasher, in a place I can't get to without further instruction. I've removed most of the drain water and pulled the unit out, so I could lay it on its side and start taking screws out. But I much prefer to have some guidanc

My Maytag MDB9150AWS is no longer working due to what I believe is a electrical fire in the front control panel as there was smoke coming out of the top of the front panel. There were no flames but the smell took your breath away. We had to open the Kitchen windows and door for several hours to try to get rid of the smell, but you can still smell it by the dishwasher. This model is not part of the recall. Has anyone else had a similar problem with this model?

It is not pumping water into the spray arm to wash the dishes. I can get it to fill with water and drain the water, but when it fills and the cycle timer starts, nothing happens, and a slight burning smell occurs. Does this model have a reversable pump or a direct drive? I am thinking this is where i need to start.

My ASKO 1805 Dishwasher started to smell weird and white smoke came from it. I turned it off, but after I turned it on again it just keeps pumping water in and out, I can't get in contact with it (None of the indicator lights are working and it is not reacting to any commands) In addition the safety feauture that is supposed to stop all operation the moment the door is opened is no longer working. (i.e. even with the door open it is still pumping water) Does it sound like an expensive repair? (

I have a JDB1090AWS about 3 years old. We noticed a smell and found cutting boards and plastic cups melted. Machine was off. Had to turn off the breaker. Checked both leads to element & have power even with machine off. Not sure if it could be the limiting thermostat; I assume that is to shut the heat down when it gets too hot. Element is on though when it shouldn't be to begin with. I did have to tighten the water supply. Had some water underneath, but all wires seemed dry. Any tests I should t
