SOURCE: Miele g841sc dishwasher leaks

Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.

SOURCE: GE Dishwasher is not draining water

GE Prifile dishwashers have a valve called a "Piston" and an "O" -Ring under the screen that become degraded over time. The part is around $10 and it takes about an hour to do the repair. You can do this yourself if you are handy and have some simple tools. You can go to the GE website and get a free owners manual.

SOURCE: GE Nautilus GSD4200 Dishwasher will not wash/drain

If your dishwasher is cleaning poorly, check these:

Water-inlet valve Most cleaning problems are caused by the dishwasher not getting enough wash water, so the water-inlet valve is often to blame. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. 

When a water-inlet valve is defective, you may hear the sound that's usually referred to as "water hammer." If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. 

Dishwasher Water Inlet Valve Replacement

Be sure to read and understand any instructions that come with the new water inlet valve.

Tools required: 

Adjustable wrench

Multi-Screwdriver 

Pliers 

Step 1. Disconnect the dishwasher from its power source. 

Note: Dishwashers are usually wired directly to the home’s electrical system. To disconnect the power, switch off the circuit breaker or remove the fuse for the electrical circuit the dishwasher is attached to. Try to turn the unit on after disconnecting the power to be sure you were successful. 

CAUTION: If you’re not sure you’ve shut off the power properly, DO NOT CONTINUE. Call a qualified appliance repair technician to complete the repair. 

Step 2. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. This is usually underneath the kitchen sink or in the basement or crawlspace near the location of the dishwasher. Pliers may be helpful here. 

Note: If there are no shut-off valves, you must shut the water off at the main water supply valve for your home. 

Step 3. Remove the lower panel(s) of the dishwasher. These are usually held by 2 to 4 screws at the upper and lower corners of the panel(s). 

The inlet valve is usually near the front of the dishwasher. Attached to the valve you’ll see: 2 or 4 wires, the water supply line from the house and the water feed line that goes to the dishwasher. 

Step 4. Remove the household water supply line from the valve. The line is usually secured with a brass compression nut. The water supply line is usually copper or braided stainless steel. 

CAUTION: Water supply line may be hot. 

Step 5. Remove the fitting from the valve the water supply line was attached to. This fitting may be very difficult to remove. It may help to put the valve into a vice in order to remove the fitting. If you cannot remove it, replace it. The fitting is not an appliance part but a plumbing part that is available at most hardware stores.

Step 6. Remove the screws holding the valve to the dishwasher frame. 

Step 7. Label the wires to the valve so you’ll be sure to reattach them correctly. 

Step 8. Remove the wires from the valve. 

Step 9. Remove the clamp on the black rubber water discharge tube and pull the tube off of the valve. 

Step 10. Reinstall the old fitting (or a replacement fitting if necessary) onto the new valve the water supply line was attached to. Use Teflon tape or pipe joint compound as a thread sealant. Make this fitting tight to prevent leaks. Make sure that the fitting points in the same direction as the old one so that the water supply line will meet up with it properly. 

Step 11. Install the new valve in the reverse order of the removal instructions. 

Note: The water supply line is under high pressure. Be sure to tighten the fittings properly. 

Step 12. Turn on the water to the machine, and check for and correct any leaks. 

Step 13. Reinstall the access panel(s). Restore the power to the dishwasher and test. 

Note: You may have to let the dishwasher run a few minutes before it reaches the next water fill cycle. 

Internal filters Every dishwasher has some type of filter to keep large food particles and foreign objects away from the pump assembly:

  • Most modern dishwashers have self-cleaning filters that don't need any routine cleaning.


  • Some have filters in the bottom of the dishwasher that you need to periodically clean. You don't need any tools to remove the filter, and cleaning it is easy. Consult your owner's manual to determine which type you have and its maintenance requirements.


If your filter is clogged, it may be causing the cleaning problem. 

Drain valve Some dishwashers have a valve (or gate) that should open only during draining. If debris lodges in the valve, it can't close properly, so water drains out during the wash cycle. Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposer. If yours does that, listen for water flowing into the disposer during the wash cycle. If you can hear it then, the drain valve may be clogged.

Spray arms There's a spray arm at the bottom of your dishwasher--it may have a tall spray tube mounted to the center of it. There may also be a spray arm located directly beneath the upper rack of dishes and/or above the upper rack.

If debris is blocking the holes in the spray arms where the water comes out, it could cause cleaning problems. Regularly inspect each of the spray arms and clean out the holes as necessary. 

Water temperature To get the best cleaning results, the water entering your dishwasher needs to be hot enough. Try running the hot water in your kitchen sink for about 30 seconds before starting the dishwasher, to pre-heat it. Also, if your dishwasher lets you select a higher wash or rinse temperature, try that to see if it helps. 

To check the temperature of the hot water that comes from your kitchen faucet use a waterproof thermometer. If the water isn't 120 degrees Fahrenheit, your dishwasher may have trouble getting your dishes clean. You could increase the temperature of the hot water to the whole house--and therefore the dishwasher--by adjusting the hot water heater thermostat.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Detergent cup Dishwashers don't perform their best if detergent is introduced only at the beginning of a cycle, so add detergent to both parts of the cup.

I have a Rival crock pot and I dropped the lid and it shattered. Where can a buy a new lid and what is the cost. It is a basic white rival crock pot with the insert that can be taken out and washed.


check the thrift store (goodwill, Etc). Measure the diameter that the lid should be to fit the pot and perhaps a glass lid from another appliance will work. Or, even a metal pot or pan lid (better than nothing)

Disherwasher fills with water but will not spray


Mine did the same thing; cycled through without any actual washing by the spray arms. pulled the sump and found a piece of broken glass was jamming the impeller. Might have been able to remove this glass by removing the volute cover and exposing the impeller while the sump was still in the machine, but that's hindsight.

Motor just hums during the wash cycle. Put it in


OK, that piece of glass may have jammed the wash impeller. this will destroy the motor windings. you will need to gain access to the circulation motor asap.the impeller is attached to the motor that is housed within the pump casing(upper). try to manually move the impeller. if its stuck, try ot remove the obstruction.

It is possible that, the motor is already damaged to the point of no return. in this case, replace the circulation motor. your drain pump should be ran by a totally separate motor(wax).


**NOTE

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.

Horbart dishwaser wont dran


Its a hobart correct?The data plate is on the bottom right front or on the door when opened on the left.If you dont see it then its been removed.Regardless does the display show a wash then rinse cycle?If so and it doesnt drain you either have a clogged drain hose or the drain valve is bad or stuck.If you use this just to wash glasses your model is probably a lxigc.If glasses are broken in the dishwasher which they probably are the glass has gotten into the drain body and is obstructing the valve from opening and closing.I work for hobart and services dishwashers alot.let me know.

The lid on my Salton MJ6SCOSS Slow Cooker shattered


Take it back to the shop you bought it from with the packaging if you still have it, and the receipt which you will need. If you don't have the receipt anymore try contacting the manufacturer, they will be able to determine if it is still in warranty from its serial number.

It could be vibration inside the dishwasher rather than heat that caused it to break though I would say it happened while cooking when you return it in case they try and make out that is isnt dishwasher proof

MDB7600AWS No Rinsing


Sound like you are recycling the same filthy water over and over again. Your dishes will likely become progressively more and more filthy.

One likely problem is that debris has clogged the small drain ports.

Most Maytag D/Ws rely on a garburator to chop debris small enough to fit through these small ports. Unfortunately a chuck of glass or fruit pit often makes it through to clog the ports. This may cause very slow and incomplete drainage or no drainage whatsoever.

To examine these drain ports, you'll need to remove the lower rack and completely disassemble the central assembly from the top down. If you are mechanically inclined its not hard. If you are worried about proper re-assembly, then video tape the assembly as a memory aid and stack the parts and screws in careful succession.

Once you reach the steel garburator blade you only have one more plastic plate to remove. Examine both ports on the plate to ensure that there is no jam or debris. Throughout the disassembly, look for any broken glass or debris that could be jamming or clogging.

When you reassemble the unit, consider reassembling without the garburator blade. Instead, perform routine disassembly and cleaning every 3 - 6 months.
