Having problems with your Whirlpool DU1055XTS Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher and the touch pad has become separated at the top. What type of adhesive can I use to repair? I recently bought aquarium silicone. Will this work or should I use RTV?


Answers :

While silicone comes in a variety of different types 'aquarium' is not a type and is probably very closely related to anything you might buy with your eyes closed; making the stuff sound unique is just another way to squeeze out a few more nickels from buyers.\015\012The films over touch-pads are generally not that expensive and are essentially 'contact cement' of the type used for fastening flooring tiles and other larger surface area items and using it for such overlays with less area isn't smart but it is cheap since the overlay can be masked and pretreated with the cement and then covered with a removable plasticized paper similar to the double sided foam tape.  \015\012Any consumer silicone will do the job and I suggest you place a wooden block over the glued area and hold it pressed on with duct tape while the silicone cures which will take some time; give it 48 hours to be sure before removing the block.

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes.

We haave a Frigidare FGHD2433KB1 dishwasher that we installed in September of 2010. Already it is not working and we are 2 highway hours from the place where we bought it. Sometimes the detergent doesn't open, sometimes dishes are not dry, recently the PF light has been coming on - yet no other appliance has had power interrupted. I am thoroughly disgusted with this machine and there are only two of us in the house so it get light use and we rinse our dishes well before placing in dishwasher.

Our maytag dishwasher has been a perpetual problem. The door hs been falling apart for along time. We babied it and tried to get it to last as long as possible. We bought an extended warranty last fall. It was not cheap. Recently we contacted a service center concerning the problem because we had not been able to use the washer. Maytag refused to repair or honor the extended warranty. They blamed our abuse on the problem. They have no proof. We have tried to keep good care of it. It ju

I am an Australian who has bought a second hand Defy Dishmaid dishwasher from a South African work mate. It is a 2/3 year old machine that he bought over from South Africa. When he moved into a new house the machine did not fit his kitchen bench opening much to his frustration so he sold it. When placed in my kitchen it was a tight fit and upon recent inspection the floor pan of the unit, it may have buckled. It worked well until recently when we did some renovations when I needed to remove

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks

I just bought a used LG LDS 5811ST stainless steel built in dishwasher. The previous owner said he bought it 4 years ago. It's in great shape but doesn't work. It powers up but the water is not pumping into the dishwasher. The previous owner said that he thought it was the pump. He said he took it apart once and cleaned a bunch of crud out of some hoses and it worked for a while then started making funny noise and stopped. When i got it home i powered it up and connected water hose. It seems to

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

This dishwasher is older than most living people in this business. It works great except it is a 208 three phase unit. It is in St.Peter's church in New York Mills, MN. We bought it used during our remodel project in 1994 for a price of $800.00. That was our mistake. We had a converter installed to accomadate the 3 phase power supply.

Where can I get the instruction manual for a Bosch Classixx Dishwasher SGS53C12UK? I have bought a second hand dishwasher that has only been used for 6 months.

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?


This sounds like a hinge problem to start with.\015\012\015\012Test the seal by dragging a strip of paper through it with door closed.

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its
