Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Why would a dishwasher filter split/break in a meile dishwasher that is not even 3 years old. i have been told that it is not under warranty and that i have to pay the $580 bill even though i feel that it must have been the dishwasher as the maintenance man said that it would have been nothing that i have done. i have had other less expensive dishwashers that lasted a long time. i am going to write to meile and see what they say. what do you think? should i persue this as i feel it was a fault in the dishwasher not with me. thank you very much for your advise. sharon

What type of detergent should I use with a Meile dishwasher? So far I've been told only liquid and only powder. Can someone break the tie?


Hi ebbragg,

Stick to powder. It has a much better track record and has been used for years.

My Bosch is only a few months old and it won't drain the water.The filter is fine. It's a shea43p16uc60.


Your bosch washer should still be under warranty:

  • Limited warranty, entire appliance, parts and labor (1 year)
  • Limited warranty for non-electronic components; parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for control board (microprocessor); parts only (1st to 2nd year)
  • Limited warranty for motor or any component of the motor (1st year to 10th year)

Do you have a meile g892 dishwasher?


Yes,

a G892SC - for over 6 years now. It's so quiet that many a time I've opened the door to put something in it, only to discover it'd been running (rinsing, etc., not drying!) the whole time! Despite 3 years in the Army and lots of Rock concerts, I have no hearing loss ;-)

One year ago, the little orange plastic detergent lid latch broke. And considering how well-made the rest of the unit is, it was not as robust as the rest of the DW. I Emailed Miele, and they sent out a repairman who replaced the entire soap unit on the door for FREE, even though it was well out of warranty. You pay more, and you get more.

Fridge Problem


Hello mikemloy.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your Fridge is 3-4 years old. It has power (the light works) but the motor does not run therefore its not getting cold. Is this likely to be a motor/compressor problem? if so is it worth fixing or should you just replace the unit.

It is only 3 or 4 years old and you bought it new?
I think it may be low on freon, and the compressor will not turn on under these circumstances.
A compressor does not usually go in 4 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Call Frigidaire and if it is the compressor you can ask them to replace it free cause it is only 3 years old. You would be surprised what the right person can do.
I deal with them every day.
They know it is harder to find new customers than to keep the ones you have!
It may only be only a bad thermostat.
I usually tell them I'm about to redo my kitchen and picked all frigidaire Pro steel apliances, BUT I"M NOT going to go with them if they do not make good on my new defective freezer!
( Be real nice and soft spoken and sweet. Not angry and insist, do not give in)

If so your good with a nominal repair.
Try this first, turn the fridge off at the switch inside . And then unplug the unit for 5 minutes.
It must be off at least 3 minutes is why I told you 5 minutes!!!
Some units will reboot their systems and start!


Let me know how it turns out!

When to pull the plug on your dishwasher

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems in the owner's manual and on the Web sites of many manufacturers.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model? The answer depends mostly on the age of your dishwasher, how much you bought it for, and the cost of the repair. Follow these guidelines from our in-house experts:

When a repair makes sense. If your dishwasher is under warranty or less than four years old , paying for a repair makes sense. Note that dishwasher under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician; readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice. If your dishwasher is out of warranty and is four to seven years old, it might make sense to pay for a repair. Readers paid $100 to $200 for a repair. But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage, given that today's models are quieter and have added features. They pay for them selves in only a few years due to higher energy efficiency which is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008, are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace. The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new dishwasher. Our data also show that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive dishwasher six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent of a dishwasher you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thank you for using our services to advice you.

Hello rpmhmmjuju
Welcome to fixya.
Iam Huuum

You said,the motor on our Kenmore dishwasher keeps sticking. I can start it and it may do 3 or 4 loads then stick again.


First try to throw the breaker of for 5 minutes and then on and see if that resets the system.

But more than likely its a bad switch in the control panel
that is intermittently failing.
That is a tough call . You need to call service!

HOW old is the dishwasher?

Here is a report I read recently!

Candy cs 455m dishwasher





Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, Candy keeps blowing the fuse. It is not the main fuse in the house(was checked). I
You think it may be the heating element. You asked any advice?

I feel you have a short somewhere . and who knows where? How old is the appliance and what did it cost?

I've seen 3 or 4 people in the past 24 hours that replaced the heating element in the same candy 455 dishwasher and still had the problem.
They told me they felt they did not want to spend any more money ont his unit cause they said, it was an inexpensive model!
So my clients told me!

You could buy a no name door seal gasket from any dishwasher parts supplier but you will loose your warranty with Miele. And extended warranties reach up to 6 years if you bought it from a factory authorzed dealer with a factory authorized installion! Call Miele direct. Miele's number is 1-800-843-7231
If you would rather call your local Miele dealer, they'll be more than happy to do help you!
