Dishwasher won't drain

You may need to clean out the trap below the dish rack in the bottom of the machine. Remove any debris that may be in the floor of the washer. For a Frigidaire, I know you push down and turn the trap clockwise until it releases; remove the trap by pulling up on the water jet; remove the glass trap and empty, then clean any debris below or around the trap; replace the glass trap, replace the water jet, turn counter-clockwise until it clicks; replace the dish rack. Be sure to use mild cleanser, such as dish soap or vinegar--no harsh chemicals as they will damage the machine. Good Luck!

I have a kenmore elite model 110.8586 or 8587 anyway I cleaned my lent screen put it back as I always do after every load and know it say check lint screen


The sensor is dirty..remove the lint trap and clean the orifice with a Swiffer duster. Dryer sheets can clog the lint trap use a tooth brush and detergent to clean the lint trap. Alternately see if it presents the same issue operating it without the lint trap. If you have an air compressor blow out the slot too. Make sure the main exit hose is cleared also *vent duct*. Tip the unit and blow the air in too.

Or a melting type fuse mounts on the blower housing and is tied into the same circuit as the door switch. When it melts it shuts down everything and this keeps the lint from catching fire.

Also check the belts.

You can turn off the beeping if you would like. Instructions are in the manual. By Pressing the buzzer button it has Loud medium low and off positions.

Remove the rear vent and try the unit...

I'm thinking that your sensor is probably the issue here.

dishwasher that leaves dishes dirty

Your drain could be blocked, remove the drain from the trap below the sink and try running the unit on drain, into a bucket. Also check the connection at the trap to ensure it is free from blockage

I want to know how to remove the lint trap (not just the screen but the entire assembly) from a Maytag Performa PYET344AZW front loading electric dryer. The lint screen will not even properly slide back into place because there is so much lint within the plastic frame (and probably in the ducts and everywhere else too!).

Besides drying clothes, dryers also remove lint. This fine, fuzzy material can cause trouble because it blocks dryer lint traps, clogs vents, and fills blowers. Lint can also gather around and in the tracks of the drum rollers, or in and under the pulleys and the drive belt. The result is poor clothes drying or -- sometimes -- no drying. To avoid lint problems, clean out the dryer's lint trap system every time you use the dryer.
To clean the lint screen, remove it from the unit. The screen may be located near or under the door sill, or in the top of the dryer near the control panel. It can usually be removed by pulling it up and out of its housing. Remove the accumulated lint to clear the screen; then replace the screen.
The exhaust vent also collects lint. Vent maintenance involves cleaning the lint from a screen in the dryer's vent exhaust collar and/or at the end of the exhaust vent where it sticks out through a basement window or through an exterior wall. To clean the screen, remove the clamp that holds the vent to the collar, or back out the screws that hold the vent to the collar, or pull the vent straight off an extended collar. Clean the screen thoroughly and replace it in the vent assembly.
To clean the vent itself, use a vent-cleaning brush (available at hardware stores) to pull out any lint deposits. Also check the vent run to make sure that the vent piping or tubing isn't loose at the joints, or -- in the case of flexible plastic venting -- isn't sagging between hanging brackets. Breaks or sags cause undue strain on the dryer's blower system, and can cause drying problems. If the vent pipe or tubing has become clogged with lint, remove the lint by pushing a garden hose or a drain-and-trap auger through the vent to a convenient joint. Disassemble the joint to remove the debris. With this procedure, it isn't necessary to disassemble the entire vent to find the blockage.You can head off problems before they become too serious by providing routine maintenance for your dryer's door gasket, thermostat, timer, and other frequently used parts. Let's discuss how to service these important components in the next section.
