Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

There was no category for general home repair or locksmith services, so I hope someone can help me. The doorknob on my master BR closet is broken... the knob will turn but nothing happens. The door opens into the closet, so I cannot access the screws or the door hinges on the inside of the closet. The molding on the bedroom side of the door prevents me from sliding a credit card to move the latch. The knob has no lock, just a flat surface on the knob, but other bedroom doorknobs have a small access hole in middle of the knob to insert a small screwdriver or tool to open it from the outside. This knob does not, so I tapped a small hole in it & inserted a screwdriver - I can turn the mechanism inside but it won't free the latch. Tried WD40, but it didn't help either. There is also no release hole on the shaft side of the door knob to press to remove the knob. At this point the only option I can see is to use a hacksaw to remove the door knob so I can access the hole and try to remove the parts with needle nosed pliers. I don't want to remove the molding either. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

I used a hatchet. You have to replace it anyway.

Asea 1302 blows fuse during rince cycle


Hi Gordon

I would check the fuse closely.
Did it blow with splatter
or was it like a melted wire.

This is the difference between momentary overload
or dead short.

Replace the fuse with a slightly higher amp rating (say 5) to see if a dead short is happening.
Sometimes motors get loaded momentarily and draw slightly more than the fuse rating.

If it continues then the motor is drawing too much.
Eg. water in the windings or windings insulation breakdown.

Contact an electrician to do a current load with an AC Ammeter.
Or take it to a service agent.

Good Luck

Fisher and paykell nemo dishwasher Nemo model 820. Continuously beeps when the start or any other button is pushed. Will not start


I had a similar problem with my Fisher and Paykel Nautilus 920 (same product line more or less as yours). Here's what I discovered was wrong, and how I fixed it ...

Hidden inside the plastic panel at the top of the door, where the operating buttons for the dishwasher are) is is a little switch connected to the door latch that has a blue wire and a cream coloured wire attached to it. What was wrong in mine was the cream coloured wired had become brittle and broken off from the switch. If I pressed any button, all I got was 4 rapid beeps (no error code on the display or anything like that, just the 4 beeps).

If you open the dishwasher door and look inside around the top, you'll see about 6 star shaped screws. These hold the control panel on. You'll need a special screwdriver bit to undo these (luckily I had the right one in a cheap mini screwdriver set I got from eBay that's useful for electronics and computers).

Undo those screws and gently prise the control panel off. (Poke something in the door to stop it from closing completely while you are doing all of this). Check the switch in the middle near the door latch to see if the two wires are still properly attached. In my case the cream one had broken off and fallen back inside the door, but I was able to catch it and fish it out with a pair of kitchen tongs. I used sticky tape to tape it (and the blue one) to the door while I was working so neither of them could fall back inside.

I stripped a bit more plastic off the top of the cream wire then soldered it back onto its connector, then reattached it, along with the blue one, to the back of the door latch switch (take note of which colour goes on which part of the switch before you begin).

Probably the trickiest bit was reassembling the control panel back on. There is a little plastic thing that covers the LED display part that always wants to fall out if you try to do this with the door in the upright position, plus you have to ease the panel back on properly so that the push buttons all line up with the outer flexible covering. I found it easier to lay on my back with the door almost fully open to gently tease things back into position. Also, check that the door latch works smoothly (without closing the door - just squeeze it up and down and makes sure the operation 'feels right'). Once everything is in place, redo the little screws and hopefully you are good to go again!

Ive had this dishwasher for 14 years now and had virtually decided that I would have to buy a new one until I discovered what the problem was and how relatively simple it was to fix. Hope this info helps you or someone else! :)

Where can I get a manual for this unidentified dishwasher?


You only can download an unidentified manual for an unidentified diswasher.
like this one:

http://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/WDL785SAAM/Use%20and%20Care_EN.pdf

Maybe, if you keep downloading manuals, you might find one similar to your sihwasher,


Another way might be calling some friendly dishwasher repairman who, with his experience, might identify your up to now unidentified washing device.

I say "friendly" because if it's someone who you don't know, might charge you some fee just for visiting you.

We have this dishwasher but no user's manual. Where could I download one?


Hi Catherine

I'll need to know the make and model of your dishwasher before I could even begin to try help you out.

(EDIT)
Well searching for the owners manual was certainly an exercise in futility unless you speak Spanish or Russian... So, I guess you best bet would be to contact Daewoo UK directly using the contact page at:
http://www.daewooelectronics.co.uk/contact-daewoo.aspx

(EDIT EDIT)
See if this link gives you some joy:
http://www.daewoo.es/sites/default/files/products/manuals/27.ddw-g1211f.pdf

Hope this helps you out.

Fav 60750 dishwasher has intermittent short circuit causing sparks from inner mains connector triggering house circuit breakers. No short circuit points obvious on wires or equipment. Where should I look...


It is not clear to me whether triggered fuse or differential circuit breaker?
If triggered fuse than is short circuit or overload. If triggered only differential circuit breaker than could be current leakage.
In case of short circuit I suggest you to disconnect all load, one by one (pump, motor, heating element.....etc.), until you find a load that make a short circuit.
In case of current leakage, my experience says check heating element measuring resistence between housing (earted) and each pin (two) of heating element. Should be more than 2 MOhm.
I hope I've helped.

Dropped a screw and is now unreachable


Hi,

Been there, done that a few times!

You need a telescoping, magnetic wand. It looks like a teacher's blackboard "pointer".
It pulls out to about 2 feet, and has a magnet at the end. Some styles have a magnetic that is hinged to the tip of the wand.

Available at:

1. Auto supply/Home Repair stores, for fishing screws out of engines, etc.

2. Anywhere that home canning supplies are sold. (Even some general supermarkets.) Here they are used for fishing metal canning lids out of boiling water.

3. Stationery, or Office Supply-type stores. Buy the actual telescopic pointer, and glue your own magnet to the end.

You didn't drop the screw into the guts of the machine, didya?!

Hope that helps,


Deborah
