SOURCE: Danby counter top dishwasher leaks

This might help with disassembly. Mine was leaking also, but my main problem was no spray. Use my disassembly instructions to remove the pump/motor. If you notice that the leakage is from the pump and not a loose connection, remove the pump cover and apply a thin bead of Blue RTV sealant to the rubber ring. This stopped the leak in my pump.
My Danby dishwasher (DW) stopped working. The spray arm stopped spinning completely and very little water was coming out of the arm. When I removed the spray arm (CAUTION: reverse threaded, turn CW to loosen and CCW to tighten) and ran the DW, very little water was spraying out of the pump.

I thought maybe the pump was clogged. So, I followed the recommendations I had seen online about running a few cycles with Vinegar to clear the crud from the pump, but this did not help.

It seemed like the motor was operating, and there were no strange smells to indicate the motor was burned…just no water spraying. So I thought it must be the pump. Before disassembly, I tried to locate a replacement pump. I searched far and wide, both locally and online, and could not locate a replacement pump. So with nothing to lose, I decided to disassemble the DW, take a look and see what I could find. I am glad that I did.

The bottom line is that I disassembled the dishwasher and found that the plastic pump impeller had worked its way off the pump shaft and was not turning. I forced some Teflon plumbers tape over the shaft and forced the impeller back onto the shaft. The impeller has a flat spot to line up with the shaft and I pushed the impeller down on the shaft as far as it would go. I then used a small socket to fit over the shaft and GENTLY tapped the impeller for a final seating. I reassembled the dishwasher and it worked like a charm.

Since I could not find any service manual or instructions online for this DW, I thought I would share my disassembly/reassembly procedure.

Since my instructions are too long to post here, a complete repair document including a link to pictures can be found at:

I had a repair tech (highly recommend for Metro Milwaukee WI repairs- All City Appliance LLC 414.243.1579) who figured it out.  He clarified, it is not a 'fill switch,' but an 'overflow float.'  It is the white styrafoam ball looking thing- you have to pull the little black cap/ cover off the drain to let out 'overflow' water that has collected in there, resulting in only the drain pump running and NO water entering system- which seems to have been all of our problems.  It was surprisingly easy, and I know what to do in the future thanks to the great explanation by the repair tech, and very reasonably priced too!
You have to pull the unit out, and the float flow is located on the left, bottom side of the dishwasher.  Works like a champ now!  (I actually have the built-in 18 inch)

SOURCE: error code 01 on elecrolux dishwasher EIDW6305GSI

Usually the error code 01 means you backed up water in the unit. First be sure that the drain is clear.  Run the garbage disposal and be sure your sinks are draining.

I got lucky on a EIDW6105 unit by trying this.

All the lights are flashing and it shows error code 01.

Push down on two of the buttons and hold (I pushed on the Favorite and Heavy buttons), until the flashing stops (about 8 seconds).

The machine now showed and error code 08.  Then hit the start button.  My washer then cleared and runs normally.

Hope this helps, better than a sevice call to clear the code.

Where is the filter located on a whirlpool refrigerator model ED25TQ

The filter is located behind the kickplate. You can see the handle for the filter in the kick plate. I believe you turn the filter handle Counter clock wise to remove it. It will take a little bit of force. Yes this filters the water in the door.

How do i remove the access panel behind the kick plate so i can replace the inlet water valve? I don't see any screws?

at the front top of the kick plate facing up toward the ceiling you should see phillips screws or 1/4 inch hex head screws. im not positive on this model. if there are no screws there you will have to pull it out from the counter. open the door and remove 2 screws from the underside of the counter first. PLEASE always shut circuit breaker off before any repairs

How do you get the fuse box cover off in the passenger side kick plate??

1) Take off the passenger side kickplate - pops off quite easily.
2) Take off plastic moulding covering the fuse box.. same as kick plate, be careful not to break the slim extension going up the door.
3) pop off the fuse box cover using the tabs on the sides - comes off easily, do not force too much.

Noisy kitchenaid dishwasher during filling

Fill valve replacement should be fairly simple. Most dishwashers are constructed in a similar manner, so although these steps are generic, it should lead you in the right direction: 1. Remove the lower kick panel right below the dishwasher door. The fill valve should be located in the front of the dishwasher on the left hand side. 2. Turn off the water supply line. 3. Turn off the circuit breaker to the dishwasher or unplug the unit as necessary to secure power. 4. Carefully remove the two wire connectors going to the fill valve solenoid. These wires are delicate, so be careful with them. 5. Leave the fill valve attached to the mounting plate in order to loosen the supply line. Once you have the supply line loosened you can remove the valve from the mounting plate by removing either one or two screws. 6. With the supply line disconnected, wires removed and the valve removed from the mounting plate, you can now remove the secondary water line that goes into the wash tub. It is usually behind the valve and easier to access if you can pull the valve out far enough the reach it. 7. Make sure you put teflon on all your threads BEFORE you re-install. 8. Installation is in the reverse of what I just explained to you. You should not have to remove the dishwasher from under the counter, but you can if it makes access easier. It's that easy. Just make sure you check your water lines for leaks BEFORE re-installing the kick plate. And, make sure you reconnect the wires properly. Good luck. I hope this helps you.
