    I also just found a blue rubber belt encircling the bottom arm in my two-year-old Bosch dishwasher after the cycle completed and I rolled the bottom drawer out. There's no way it got in there otherwise..

Dishwashers don't have belts only washing machines and tumble driers have them.

    I also found a teal colored belt after a dishwasher cycle. I'm not saying it is a drive belt but obviously a part of my dishwasher and not broken or torn. I'm guessing I overloaded a rack. Any help? I don't want to have to call a repair man, as he will likely say "it just slipped off and goes here".

Electrolux Dishlex DX302SJ#6 not draining


make this test and fix it. Merry Christmas
1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Large blue band appeared on lower tray following wash cycle,


So. We had the same problem tonight and I have been sitting lookin at this thing for an hour and decided to run it and see what happened with no rubber band in there. After the cycle was over I noticed that my wife washes those "snap wear" containers in the dishwasher and these items have colored coated Mylar bands as sealers. When they heat they expand and can be dislodged. It was a coincidence that it wrapped itself around the bottom spinner. Myth debunked!!!!!

Tub smells like mildew, how do i get all the sludge out from the rubber lining, no matter if I run the tub clean cycle, it does not remove any of the sludge!!!!


You need to manually wipe out the inner seal(lining) every time you finish with the washer. This is one of the main complaints with front loading washing machines. You also neep to leave the door open(ajar) after you finish washing so the machine can completely dry out inside otherwise you will get a buld up of mildew. Also run a dishwashing packet like cascade(yes the stuff for the dishwasher) when you run the clean cycle. It is the same as the expensive washing machine cleaning packets that the appliance servicemen from sears sells to customers.

My frigidaire dishwasher routinely leaves some water in the bottom after it is finished washing and the dishes are always wet on the top


HI. check the following areas for faults.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

Bosch dishwasher has water in it after finishing a cycle. Is this normal or is there a problem


All dishwashers leave a small amount of water in the sump area to keep the rubber/plastic connections lubricated.

As long as the water is clear and has no odor, you have nothing to be concerned about. OK?
