Question about Danby DDW2406 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Danby Dishwasher DDW2406BLS rinse agent light comes on after one wash cycle. Could there be a leak somewhere?

    There is no agent on the floor. I'm wondering if it is leaking into the dishwasher or the dispenser is simply dispensing all the rinse agent during one cycle.

Very important only use half teaspoon of soap. To much soap can cause it to leak. Also only use dishwasher soap.

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:

Hello there Adam and welcome to fixya
Most of the time this usually turns out to be a timer problem but i will post you some information on things that will need to be checked also ok?
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too. also Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Hi, my Zanussi zdf511 doesnt seem to be adding any rinse aid on any of the rinse aid settings?


Rinse aid dispenser can receive a maximum level of 140 ml rinse agent. Consumption rinse agent could be per wash cycle of 2 to 7 ml depending on the settings.
Thus 140 ml is enough for 20-70 wash cycles, depending on the degree of adjustment.

The last few times I filled the rinse dispenser and ran the dishwasher I notice the arrow showing the rinse aid is almost empty. Impossible. What is going on with this?


THE ANSWER IS YES. FROM YOUR DESCRIPTION IT SOUNDS LIKE THE DISPENSER PUMP OR RESERVOIR IS LEAKING. YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE SOAP DISPENSER. ALTHOUGH DISH WASHERS NEED THE HELP OF RINSE AID IT IS ONLY DISPENSED A DROP OR TWO AT A TIME DURING THE FINAL RINSE CYCLE PART OF THE WASH. HOPE THIS HELPS AND THANK YOU FOR READING THIS.

I have an Electrolux Dishwasher that always starts on low rinse


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I see that your Electrolux dishwasher starts cycle on low rinse. This typically indicates your dishwasher has low rinse aid. The RINISING AGENT LOW light, typically located near the Rinse Only Pad, comes on at the end of cleaning cycle when the rinse agent reservoir is low. The light will remain on through 5 successive cycles or until the reservoir is filled. Also, using rinse aid will enhance dryer performance and reduces water sports and filming. Hope this helps!

No water is coming in and its almost like it is 3/4 of the way through the cycle and stuck in the same position.


If the wash motor continuous to run but the cycle is frozen then most likely the thermostat or heater is faulty. Try to run one of the short cycles like rinse only to confirm if the cycle is completed.

Dish washer \does not rinse good leaves white flim


Hi:
Some things you can do to try to improve your dishwasher's performance:

1) Make sure your dishwasher rinse agent dispenser has rinse agent in it. The filler is usually close to where you put soap in the dishwasher.,
2) Consider switching brands of dishwasher detergent, if you are experiencing problems. Depending on the water condition in your area, certain brands work better than others. Ask your neighbors what works well for them.
3) try different wash cycle's with your dishwasher. Sometimes the economy cycle doesn't work as well as it should.
