I just got a house and inherited the dishwasher that came with it. I turned it on, at least I tried to, and it won't do anything but light up. Can anyone help? Thanks

I have put steel mesh over the plastic mesh which I got at the hardware srore, and it fixed the problem. the mice are getting in through an exterior hole in your house. Use coarse steel wool to plug any holes or cracks larger than 3/8 of an inch around your house. How much did you pay for your dishwasher unit?

SOURCE: cleaning out dishwasher

Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

SOURCE: My Maytag dishwasher does not drain water after the wash cycle is over

Hi olabrk,
If you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump. Good luck to you.

Only from the manufacturer you can find. If you can note the Model No Sr. No of the machine, it is possible. If it is a discontinued model, it may not be possible.

My Smeg dishwasher DWF 64 SSE won't go onto rinse or dry


Easy one first try this to see if it helps

Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Knob wont turn - have to turn it manually!!!


Emsie, the model number posted has a electronic control so Im not sure where we are going with this. A couple of things to check. Some models have what they call a foam guard routine. This can cause the machine to stop several times during wash because of oversudsing. (too much soap). You want to make sure the water temp going is is at least 120 to 150 degrees. The heater will only raise the water temp 1 degree every 4 or 5 minutes. This can cause long cycles. You might have a bad timer. If you remove the toe panel there should be a tech sheet attached to it. This will give you good information on your dishwasher opertaion...Catriver..post back.
