Question about Dishwashers

Water will not go into my dishwasher

My dishwasher is 3 years old and has been in storage for 1 1/2 years. I just moved to my new home and my dishwasher hums very loudly and will not take in water. I don't think anything is plugged (we made sure it was all dried out before we put it in storage). The water is hooked up to the faucet correctly, what could be wrong with it?

Check to make sure you have water at the fill valve.where the water goes into the valve take of the hose going to the faucet and see if you have water there when you turn the faucet on.does the humming start as soon as you push start?

Dishwasher leaves behind gritty residue i am not sure of what to try...


We have a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, 10 years old, never any problems until 2 weeks ago, then we started noticing a gritty subtance on the dishes and glassware. We're on well service, psi 40-60. water hardness is 6 grains. small trace of sulphur, and we have a Mermaid sulphur system, then a complete house carbon filter, and finally a Culligan water softner. Checked everything, Water temp. at kitchen was 120, all cycles on dishwasher were operating. Called in repair service, he says something is breaking down in the dishwasher, best to buy a new one. That'll be $150.00. Thank you very much. Tried the white vinegar, no change. Next bought 2 bottles of Dishwaser Magic. Slight improvement. Next bought 1 bottle of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner. Bingo. The thing is like brand new. even the trays slide in/out much easier. None of the dishsoaps contain phosphate, which is what helps disolve the minerals in the water. I'm not sure what the gritty stuff is, maybe the buildup over time, and it just keeps getting redistributed through the wash and rinse cycles, and finally baked on in the dry cycle. According to a tech with many years repairing appliances, the majority of their calls are for dishwasher poor performance, all because they removed the one compound that's been cleaning our dishes for years, Phosphate. We've always used Cascade gel soap. best on the market today, Finish Quantum. We tried it and dishes look terrific. It's a small tablet that fits in the soap dispenser. All Mfg's. today recommend that you run a dishwasher cleaner once a year, Experienced tech recommends every 3 months maybe more if you're on hard water. Good luck.

Dish washer 3 1/2 yrs old making a growling/vibrating sound.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Leak


your going to have to take apart the bottom panel of the dishwasher. If there isn't any screws it should slide off. After that, move the strip of insulation, now look at the power. There should be 3 wires, seperate those from other wires.(note-turn breaker off at box before doing this)now when you finish that, go in to the cabinet next to the dishwasher. The one under the kitchen sink. Find the drain line from the dishwasher and dissconnect that. while you are in that cabinit look for the water supply to the dishwasher and shut off and dissconnect. Now open the front door to the dishwasher and unscrew the sides and top off. Close door and pull gently to get full access to all the seals.

30 hotpoint dishwasher


#1. If you have to put downward pressure on the float in order to fill, then float switch is not OK.
#2. It would seem as though your pump impeller is missing some, or all vanes. (Not pumping water out).

#3. It will become even more difficult to find parts as time goes on.
#4. 30 years...It has done it's job. It has paid for the trip, It's time to move on, What else can I say.
