Danby portable dishwasher filter stuck

I have a Danby portable dishwasher. I need to take the filter out to clean it, but it won't budge. It says in the manual to just "pull up," but it is stuck. Is there something I'm missing? The filter is pretty clogged with hard water deposits (I bought this used). Maybe I have to spray it with something to loosen it. I don't want to break it, but it doesn't seem to want to come out at all! Thanks, Andy.

If it says just pull up then you do just that, it is likely rusted on.

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND FOUND THAT DOWN UNDER THE METAL TRIANGULAR STRAINER IS THE PORT
TO THE WATER PUMP. FOOD AND PAPER GOT PAST THE
STRAINER AND COVERED OVER THE INLET PORT TO THE
PUMP. IT IS A SMALL HOLE ABOUT 1 INCH IN DIAMETER
MOLDED INTO THE SUMP AREA ON THE RIGHT UNDER
THE METAL STRAINER, THIS REDUCED THE WATER PRESSURE THAT THE PUMP PUT OUT SO THE WASH ARM
DIDN'T TURN.

Danby portable dishwasher ddw1899wp starts taking in water and then stops working with pre-rinse light blinking. Please help me on this issue. Any answer would be much appreciated.


If the water level sensor does not electrically shut off when the level needed is reached, the pre-rinse cycle will error out thinking that the level has not been reached. That sensor is a float device and probably needs to be replaced...

HI,

You can buy dishwasher salt in almost every supermarket. It can usually be found in the section with other household cleaning products such as soaps and washing powders. Make sure you are buying dishwasher salt. Do not use table salt or any other type of salt not designed for use with dishwashers.

You have not been charged for this information ;)

Danby Dishwasher stuck in drain cycle after wrong soap use


There might be water in the overflow sensor. I unloaded the dishwasher and lifted the front so the dishwasher rested on its back. There's a narrow gray tube that runs down from the bottom right of the door. The tube runs into a white piece of plastic with some wires coming out of it. There is a rubber plug that covers a nipple on the plastic. Pull the rubber plug off. Mine was quite tight. Tip the dishwasher back onto its casters to drain the water from the overflow. Check to see if the dishwasher functions normally, then put the rubber plug back on.
