The incoming water determines how fast the DW is ready for another cycle. For running continuous cycles, the incoming water will need to be 140 degrees. If you pause 2 minutes between cycles, the temp should remain consistent with a 120 degree supply.

Water not heating up

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
will not run on cold water or even luke warm water, it has to be hot water. Most will even specify 120F or hotter water temp as incoming water. These new units only use 1.5-3 gallons of water for each fill, so the temp has to be there. Many brands recommend that you run your kitchen sink water until it gets hot, then start filling your dishwasher, we also recommend that. Some dishwashers will stop if it senses too cold of water coming in, others will try to warm the water and if it can't in so much time, the unit will stop and give an error code. Hot water also helps dissolve and mix the soap detergent better, giving you better washing results. Just make sure the water is hot going into your dishwasher, no getting around it.

On my Kenmore Soft Heat Heavy duty gas dryer I am having problems with the the fire lighting and going off intermentently . The fact that it ignites and then goes out makes me think that it isn't...

Hello Jerry,

It is working like its supposed to when the flame goes off, the way all dryers work is the flame(heat element on electric heated dryers) comes on and when the drum exhaust temp reachs a maximum of 155degrees and the flame goes off, the air temp will cool off to 120degrees and the flame comes back on and cuts off once again the 155 degrees has been reached..much more that 155 degrees the clothing is very likely to combust and catch on fire.

Please reply and let me know if your having a dryability issue with your dryer or where you just concerned since the flame went off??

It could be the u-joints under load in the driveshaft. It will only get worse and more expensive to fix. But it will be cheaper than a lower unit. You might want to check the prop hubs before removing the outdrive and check for lube in gears. Milky is bad. Good luck..

I own a 1994 boston whaler Rage with a yamaha J650c jet drive in it. I bought this boat and the temperature sender was not working. I replaced the gauge and the sender . The sender goes into the computer...

boston walyler and a yamaha j650 is a good set up

all you need at the moment is a led test light and a volt meter
make sure you have volts or amps and earths at the right places

some messy DIY wiring done and takes time to sort it properly

i would suggest a compression test on the motor

you have water pump impeller worn or coil ,plugs, fuel supply and other reasons why the motor would over heat or run rough

no temp shut down system on yamaha electronics module
if that was blown the motor would not start

this is the boat and the motor yamaha J650c

There is a heavy film on my dishes. I have a rinse in it but I don't think it is being used and I use Cascade gel to wash them?

A heavy film can be the product of bad water conditions, bad cleaning action from the machine, incorrect/inadequate chemistry, and even water temps being too low.
Start by washing some of the dishes by hand to determine if the film can be removed. Use a quality detergent and some elbow grease. If film can be removed, test the machine for proper washing action. I like to do this by coating the inside of several glasses with mayonaise and placing them strategically throughout the machine. Run a cycle and ensure ALL mayonaise is removed. Is mayo removed? If no, check for plugged wash arm jets or screens. If yes, check for good water temps. 120F or higher is best, depending on machine type/model.
If machine is good and film is removed by hand, then you either have a water problem (water hardness, TDS, etc), a temp issue (raise temps above 120F), or a procedural issue (improper loading of wares, inadequate/insufficient detergent, too much food soil entering dishmachine).
Hope this helps,
