Re: portable dishwasher

The first thing you might want to do is check the water pressure in the house. Ideal water pressure should be from 55psi to 75psi max. I have seen homes that had pressure around 125 psi which will cause pressure leaks in water heaters, softners, washer valves, r/o systems. Check to see that all, if any inlet screens are clear and free from any grit and sand. It's possible that your inlet water valve (wd10m0010) has become restricted. Other than that, the complete uncoupler hose assy. part number is wd24m0030. These parts are for the dishwasher model ending in gsc3400j00bb. They are the same for model number ending in 00ww. Good luck.

Danby portable Dishwasher advances from pre-rinse to dry and then beeps continuously and dry light continues to blink. Doesn't proceed, reset or stop cycle. Just continues to blink.

I actually found out (one of) the solution to this by accident. It could be the water source is not providing enough pressure

I purchased a Danby DDW1899W-1 and, using the connector screwed into my utility sink in the basement, I connected the water. When I tried to run a cycle, I had the same results (filled/emptied 4-5 times, beeped and went to dry cycle).

My alternate, long term plan was to put a Y-splitter (with shutoffs) on the hot water line for my washer, and have one hose go to the dishwasher when needed. I purchased a washer line hose from Home Depot and a 3/4" to Quick Connect fitting from Ace Hardware and then connected the dishwasher to this.

And, Voila! Problem solved!!!

To confirm this was the solution, after the first completed cycle, I connected back to the faucet and, once again had the fill/empty/beep/dry problem. Reverting to the split washer water feed, it was able to run the cycles properly (again!!!)

So you may just need a line that will supply more water pressure to the dishwasher.

Good luck and, hopefully, this solves the problem.

My dishwasher Bosch SHEAR55UC show E24 on screen , didn't work all of process ?


E24 is draining error:

Turn off the appliance. Check drain well and filter for blockage. Clean drain. Check drain hose at the back to make sure it is not kinked. Dry water from inside the appliance manually (with power not connected). If that does not fix the problem, then pressure switch in the drain system is usually responsible. The part to be tested are pump, pressure switch and drain lines.

If you need parts or diagrams see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Hi I have a problem with my Bosch SHU43CO6UC/22 dishwasher. using "power scrub plus" and "regular" cycles it will continue to fill and overflow the door, after the cycle has run even...

The bosch dishwashers use a fill valve that is attatched to the inlet hose. yours is stuck in the open position. this usually happens when you have hard water, as the minerals build up on the sealing surface of the water valve. there is no easy fix. the fill hose will have to be replaced. It requires removing the machine, removing the bottom pan, and changing the hose connections.

the valve uses water pressure to stay closed. if the water pressure is very low coming in, it may not be enough to close the valve. there is a filter screen between the fill hose, and where it connects to your water valve. try cleaning the filter out and see if that makes a difference. If not, you will have to get the hose changed.

You should be able to find extension or replacement hoses that you can use to extend the existing hoses at a hardware store. If you need to join two hoses that have female connectors, adaptors with two male connections are available.

I have a portable ''GE quiet power'' portable dishwasher and the hose won't fit on my new faucet - is there some sort of adaptor I can buy for the sink so it will fit properly?

Yes, you need to know whether your faucet is male or female thread (threads on outside or inside) and buy an adapter that will fit into the faucet where the aerator normally sits. These are generally available in the plumbing section of your local hardware store. Make sure you know your diameters as well (O.D. stands for Outside Diameter and is usually male thread where as I.D. stands for Inside Diameter and is usually female thread)
