3 loose plastic rings found in primary filter The 3 identical rings are of pliable plastic and are 30mm in dia and 4mm width. The cross section of the outer ring is 'V' shaped. I cannot see where these belong. Are they part of the dishwasher? Thanks Richard

What you are describing is known as an 'olive' the sealing part of a water union known as a kinko and olive, i would nt worry to much they have been caught by the filter and it is just doing its job ....unless of course there is a leek then you will need to find the unions they came from

How do i take out bottom draw


Open the drawer.
Top tub : depress the right hand tub clip and push it back about 30mm. Repeat for the left hand side.

Bottom tub: remove the toe kick (refer section 9.4) and lower tub cowling (refer section 9.5), both optional.

1. If the cowling has not been removed, then the tub clips need to be pushed back about 130mm so the slide clears the cowling when the tub is lifted.

2. Lift the tub off the slides and push the runners back into the product.

3. Releasing the wire from the centre clip on the link assembly allows the tub to be moved further from the chassis (optional).

4. If the tub is being turned over for servicing, rotate it counter clockwise, remembering to remove the baskets first. Removing the handle will prevent it from being damaged.

5. Refit in reverse manner.

Grohe 33 330 fixture loose. Only 1 nut underneath countertop supporting fixture. Per Grohe 46 078 000 - Mounting Set they should be other o-rings washers etc. Please advise. Thanks John


Hi,
Yes... your setup should look like the 46078000 at this point i would just buy that for the 28 bucks...

You should have an o-ring on top of the counter, then the metal washer the plastic washer and then the ring underneath...tighten the ring hand tight and then tighten the screws to pull everything snug...

Jdb2100aws dishwasher - door handle fasteners loose, handle ready to drop off. This is a dissambly question: The middle section of the door has an upper one-third (which contains the input switch strip)...


after removing the stainless cover l tried to disassemble the door further but found it difficult, there is a hard thick plastic cover, i took my dremel and cut a small hole large enough for a wrench to fit and tighten the thin nut on the handle, line up the hole with where the nut would be on the other side, its a pretty quick and easy fix, l dont understand why they didnt have the openings there throughthe plastic to do the tightening since it is the stainless steel that keeps the water where it should be.

My dishwasher electrolux esl6115 is leaking from the bottom of the door during the cycle.


My dishwasher electrolux built in unit was leaking, turned out to be the plastic nut inside on right hand side where water feeds the top rotar was loose. I actually took side off and found it running down inside and flooding out the feet and sides. Solution in my case was to wrap PTFE around the threaded section and rescrew nuton tightly..Problem solved. Simples.

10 yr old Kenmore dishwasher was leaking, cycling ok but dishes are not coming out clean. Took about bottom spray unit, found a split plastic round ring about 1.5" dia. Could this be the problem or what...


The ring fits just under the spray arm and the split is normal. When you tore the spray assembly apart, did you clean the screens at the bottom (if white hard-water deposit, soak in 50:50 hot water and white vinegar)? Make sure none of the ports in the deck are plugged with food deposits. Check both spray arms for plugged spray holes or split seams. The upper arm moves from water pressure alone--no motor. Make sure it spins freely by hand. We had to try different detergents to get away from a gritty deposit on glassware. Did you fix the leaking problem? Inspect the gasket seal around the door for damage or hardness and check the latch for holding the door closed firmly. Hope some of this helps!

GE triton dishwasher middle spin arm not spinning


I had the same problem and found two things which were causing it
-The O-ring was missing off of the tube connection on the back of the dryer that inserts into the sprayer tube. I found a size 11 O-Ring at Home Depot and it worked
-The openings on the underside of the spray arm are what propels the sprayer to spin. I found small pieces of plastic debris in the openings and cleaned them out.

Now the middle arm spins like it should.

Miele G638 dishwasher.


Hi John I have the same problem, the manual says that it is because the water level is to low, this is checked by opening the door after the machine has stopped filling and before it starts to wash, the level should be 4mm above the main plastic filter ring, the level has two settings, these can be adjusted by pressing the start button and the On/Off button at the same time, release the start button and turn the control to economy 45,if the start light does not come on the level is set to normal, to increase level press the start button again and the light should come on, this will give you an increased filling time. it did no help me but it may help you. good luck
