Question about Danby DDW1805W Designer Series Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle

I just moved my Danby portable washing machine down a flight of stairs.(We did so carefully!)  It no longer advances through the cycles. Each cycle still works, (filling with H2o, spinning, draining, spinning) but I have to advance the knob to each new cycle myself. It doesn't work automatically. 
Is there a way I can re-adjust it to work properly?

    My Danby DDW1805W 18" portable dishwasher is less than 3 years old. Timer Cam no longer will advance. Contacted the Danby company. Turns out they've changed the design of the front door panel controls and no longer produce, nor have in stock, the old timer cam that I need. The new door panel/controls are not compatible. $359 wasted. A new Danby dishwasher costs $400 at Walmart. Danby won't give me a "rebate" towards the purchase of a new Danby dishwasher, no price adjustment, nothing. Basically they told me I'm just plain out of luck. I'm not the only person with this same problem DO NOT BUY DANBY.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

* It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never
advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace
the timer.


* It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates,
drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

After washing 2 loads the machine won't fill to high level it only fills 1/2 way


You have a faulty fill valve. Return/ replace you washer if under warranty. If not then you will have to replace your fill control valve. That valve is where the knob for the fill level is.

Hello, I have a stacked Whirlpool washer/dryer. (Model # LTE6234DQ1) I wish to move it down a flight of stairs and want to know if this model can be easily 'unstacked' for the move. Thanks for your...


Hi there.

Yes it can.
Access bolts to the feet should be visible from the rear of the unit. Failing that, the top screws of the bottom appliance should undo, and the top appliance (with lid of lower one) should slide back 1" allowing it to be taken off.

Be careful not to damage this lid section in the move, and further removal can restore it back to two appliances again.

If this helps, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

Danby washing machine noisy only during spin cycle


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
