    Actually, I meant to type tub, not tube, so YES, I did drill a hole in the tub. Dumb, YES, I know. It's a small hole, about the diamater of a toothpick. I am going to use some aqua marine epoxy to try and fix it.

Stainles steel deisel fuel tank instaled in a boat it has a leak i cant remove it from the boat any sugestions rgds allen

If the leak is just a hole and the hole is accessible, then just use a piece of rubber like an old heavy inner tube and a sheet metal screw with a a large head or shoulder...metal roofing or siding screws work great... then just run the screw through the rubber and then the screw tightly into the tank and it will seal the leak for you.

Lxi hobart not pulling rinse aid i used a screwdriver across prongs on board to make it run manually but still not coming out

try replacing the "squeeze tube" inside the dispensing unit. Over time the tube flattens out. If the tube is flattened no chemical will be drawn from your jug.

Disconnect inlet and outlet hoses on rinse aid dispensing unit.
Remove 4 screws and pull off outer face of dispensing unit. You can watch the dispenser operate with the face off if you wish, as long as the hose doesn't fall out (which it won't).
Remove squeeze tube and install new tube.
Reassemble inlet and outlet hoses (be sure to not mix up which tube/hose goes on top and which on bottom).

Also possible that the hose from the chemical jug to the dispensing unit has a hole/crack or otherwise. If the hose has a leak it'll lose suction and draw air in from the leak and not pull chemical.

I have a KitchenAid dishwasher KUDC25CHBT1 that is leaking from what I believe is the water inlet. It only leaks while filling. Is this a replaceable part, and if so, how is it removed?

Ok if it only leaks while filling, and not while running, it is probably the fill hose that goes from the fill valve to the washer. This hose can be accessed by removing the lower kick plate (2-4 screws) look on left side you'll see your incoming copper tubing (or hose) and a larger hose with clamps on each end It may have vibrated a hole in it or be leaking at clamp. Another possibility is the fill valve itself is cracked and leaking only when the valve is on.

Leaking dishwasher simpon silencio 850. not alot of water 100mls or so. can't see where it is leaking from, there are some water marks on the front right underside.

Commonly leak from door seal- check seal for rips, notches. Also common to leak from the black retainer that the door seal sits it-remove the seal (they just pull off) and shine a torch from inside the dishwasher around the back of the seal retainer, and see if there are any gaps around the outside of the seal retainer. Repair with silicone sealant if any gaps. Other things to check- check the screws that hold the top basket runner on are tight- there are two holes in the runners, move runner until you can see screw, check they are tight. Also check water level is not too high inside machine whenits running- there are three vertical lines on the bottom spray arm support tube- water level should not be above top line. If still leaking, call in the experts!! Good luck!!

Water left in bottom dishwasher and after resetting to wash will not start unless the water is drained out manually

GE Dishwashers are equipped with an anti-syphon ball that generally dislodges itself and goes into the drain line. To remove it, you'll have to pull it out of it's hole. Turn the supply off and open the kick plate. Remove the supply line from the dishwasher and the drain line free from the air gap. Remove the two screws that hold it to the counter top and pull it out. Remove the lower rack and spray arm. To remove the spary arm you have a 1/4 inch head screw to undo, and on the back of the spary arm is a plastic clip. Use a small screwdriver to depress from the spray arm and pull the spray arm off. There are then two 1/4 inch screws that hold the food screen on and remove the basket. Now, underneath the dishwasher is a large manilla-colored hose with a large hose clamp that must be loosened. Pull this loose and a bit of water as well as the ball will come out. Reattach and drop the ball into the left hole under the basket. Reconnect everything and slide the dishwasher back in. Reinstall drain hose and supply line. Turn on supply. Run and look for leaks.

Leaks water

There are 4 screws holding that kick plate on. Normally, they're 1/4" drive. Lay on the floor with a flashlight and look at all 4 corners (between the kick plate and the door and near the floor).

This is how to get the panel off, but without a make and model I can't help any further. If you could provide those, we can figure out how to repair the leak. Just let me know, OK?

Upper rack not getting clean

The problem likely is the cutter/chopper filter.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket (Pop off 'keepers' at the ends of the slidding shelf supports).
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmily) centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back and one at top (Philips #2 screwdriver bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg to the right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post It can then be taken apart to clean.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up) Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 screwdriver bit). Lift whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen (Flat blade screwdriver around the edge) and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at left front (Under the just removed centre assembly). Remove (Star T-15 screwdriver bit) screw and cap (Needs a bit of wiggling to get it free). Remove cutter and filter ( a stainless steel disc with many holes in it). Tt is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and lift the filter straight up. Clean thoroughly. I then ran a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out, to clean the inside.
6. Reassemble - Good luck! This worked for me.

Zanussi dishwasher DE6744 power indicator light on but when program buttons pressed nothing happens

I had the same problem, in my dishwasher ZDI6895sx the solution to my problem was in the connection between the main PCB and the display/ control pcb on which the buttons/ led's etc are mounted.

On my machine there are about 8 wires in a ribbon type connector which connect the two pcb's, the connection to the main PCB is soldered and on the smaller PCB is a push on fitting, the connections on this pcb are prone to oxidation, there could also be stress on the connector from all of the button pushing, check the connecting wires for continuity with a multimeter if possible but otherwise just remove the connector from the samller pcb clean well(reflow with solder if required) and reseat the connector in its original configuration.

As always only perform this repair if you feel confident and have turned all power to the machine off prior to dismantling.

Let me know how you get on.
