Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The disk washer doesn't drain at the end of the rinse cycle. There is a humming sound but no water is forced through the hose to the sink/garbabe disposal. At the end of the wash, there is a large amount of dirty water in the bottom of the washer. I removed the spray arms, the spray arm holder and the screen and then removed the water, and found a couple of pieces of plastic. But I don't see how I can remove additional parts from the washer bottom. What could the problem be? Is there a fi


Answers :

Is the dishwasher drain hooked to the garbage disposer? If so is it new? If so did you knockout the plug in the disposer? If so then you either have something clogging the drain or pump. Or the pump motor is bad.

I have a GE dishwasher (GSD4020Y70BB) new in 1996. I replaced the whole motor assembly in 2007, seal was leaking. My dishes are not getting clean now, dried food left on plates, coffee stains in cups not being cleaned. I removed main spray arm, found nothing, turned washer on and plenty of water gushing out. I took the cover off sump all clean. I removed the filter screen in the back, there appears to be a valve with some soft rubber around it. Water gushes out of this, does stop during the cyc

I have a washer model 1805 (1800 PSI). Everything works but there is always leaking of water (sprays) when I use it. The leak is not from where the water hose connects to the washer, but where the black piece attached to the hose is connected to the body of the washer. I can still do a decent job of power washing, but am wondering if the leaking of water is reducing the power of the washer.


Yes, leaking water will reduce the pressure. Sounds like you need to replace the O-Ring inside the connections on the pump. This is where the pressure hose connects to the pump. If you look carefully inside that connection you will see an O-Ring. Use ... Campbell Hausfeld PW1805 1800 PSI 15 GPM Pressure Washer

Hi. I have an LG LDF7810 dishwasher. I did a deep clean and ended up taking out a bunch of grease from the seal between the door-bottom and the tub. I even removed the door to get at the grease I thought was trapped back there. Since then it has been leaking water, sometimes a drip and a couple of times a few ounces have gushed out at the end of a fill cycle. Did I remove some factory grease designed to seal the door bottom? If so, what should I replace it with? If not, what else could the


It is possible that while you removed off the grease the water seal/oil seal was also damaged. Once the seal is taken out it can loose the sealing strength which can make it possible to leak.\015\012Hence it will be good to remove the seal and ... LG 24 in. LDF7810 Built-in Dishwasher

I think I need to check the water pump/motor on my Bosch SHU43C dishwasher. It seems the water enters at the start of the wash cycle but then there is silence through the remainder of the cycles. Water will not spray. The drain appears to work ok to drain most of the water out. I have the washer out and upside down. Any hints on removing the base to get access to the pump? Should AI be looking at the control panel also for a fault? (the cycles seem to count down ok)

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut.

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean. I have tried evacuating the water left at the bottom of the dishwasher before running, pre-running the hot water in the sink and ensuring that the disposal was run, removing and cleaning the filter at the bottom of the washer.

The washer is not cleaning properly, I found that the lower spray arm is fairly floppy and will tip enough to hit the element.
