Question about Danby DDW1805W Designer Series Free-Standing Dishwasher
My danby 18" portable dishwasher will not run. the power is working, the attachment seems to be latching to my sink, but the water does not seem to be entering the machine.
It worked yesterday (this is the second time we are using it, or trying to use it). When I stop and examine the hose that is supposed to deliver water from the faucet to the machine, it appears to be filled with water. BUT, it clearly is not "delivering" water to the machine, because when I feel the hose, it does not warm up, even though I only have the warm water turned on.
The door for my Danby appears to be shutting properly, and the power lights and everything are on. I can even hear the "engine" running. My water pressure is not spectacular, but it worked fine yesterday. None of the cycles work. Neither quick nor super settings work.
Okay, this might seem crazy, but it worked. I spent the last 2 days trying to contact Danby customer service to no avail, so I came back here to look for solutions. Found two:
(1) Someone said to open the little rubber cover under the front right of the machine...I couldn't find such a cover.
(2) Someone said to pull off the front plastic panel...mine doesn't seem to be removeable.
So! I turned my Danby DDW1805 upside-down (!) to see if I could locate the aforementioned rubber cover, and a bunch of water drained out of the machine. This is what both solutions above said I wanted to happen, so I flipped it back right-side up and hooked it back onto my faucet.
Golden. Works perfectly again.
