It depends on the manufacturer if it is a frigidaire the filter is located in the hose that goes from the pump to the tub. if it is a whirlpool then there is a filter that you can remove directly in the front of the pump. Kenmore is a name only it has other companies make the machine for them.I hope this info helps

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...

I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?

Not sure how much this will help you now, but unplugging your device is the only way to really protect it during a storm. Even turned off, your equipment is still subject to receive any electrical spikes that come through the lines

Starting Knocking of the engine when cold

if iam not mistaken here and no doubt i am but without hearing the noise i cannot really say but i would hazard a guess and say its a hydraulic tappet clacking and to cure this you will need to add a couple of capfulls of washing up liquid to the oil and half a pint of diesel as well .Run engine for a couple of days and if iam right the noise will stop ,When it stops drain the oil and change it for a new filter and oil ,then make sure you change the oil every 6000miles and the filter every third oil change this will prevent the build up of clagg inside the engine blocking things up .

Dishwasher top drawer was dead so i was told to change the heater under the drawer i did that but now i got more broblems the top drawer lights up just beeps for a second and does nothing as for the...


Whenever the Drawer is Dead, there could be a couple of Reasons. First, it could be a Bad Heater Plate or Bad Control Board on the Front.You could remove the Control Board and Check.More often, you would find visually, that they are Hot and Bad.

On Few Models, there are two Circles.You could use a Pliers and twist them out.The Front will Slide and you could check all the Connections.Make sure they are tight and secure.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hello kimic72,

You said, at first my i noticed that it looked as if the dishes weren't getting rinsed thoroughly, there was a white film and we have been using the same detergent as always, i read that sometimes it could just be that the controls weren't contacting properly and to just mess around with the buttons and it could help, that actually worked, now its not draining and i wanted to see if it was some sort of timer problem since my buttons don't always contact before i start check in everything else i don't think its clogged but really iam not sure, anyways it could be so many things i read that u can get to the pump or something from the inside after removing the spray arm but im not sure how to get it off if u could please help thank u

Please provide the model number and yaer of your dishwasher and I will attempt to assit you!
