It was the piece at the top of the tub wasnt it?it fell off and got hung under the element didnt it? mine did the same thing. well it burned a spot on the tub sears has that piece pretty cheap. I didnt worry but later the tub material cracked at that point where it burned and I put RTV silicone on it. the leak kept coming back. the washer has a lifetime warranty on the tub from cracking but if it is past its normal warranty period the labor will cost as much as a new dishwasher.
if it leaks if I had it to do over. I would drill holes at the ends of each crackline and then seal with RTV silicone. and maybe the cracks will stop.

My heater doesn't work on my 06 buick rainier


A few things to check would be your fuse, refer to your manual to see which fuse controls the heater and if your fuse is good your heater coils for your heater might be burnt out. Or maybe just a loose connection to the heater coil.

The refrigerator stays at 47 degrees but the bottom compartments freeze


You have a defrost problem. A blockage of frost in the freezer prevents air flow over the cooling coils there, allowing very cold air to migrate back into the bottom of the refrigerator section. Unload the freezer and remove the back wall, melt the frost off the coils with a hair blower, and check to see if the defrost heater at the bottom of the coils is burnt out. If heater is OK, replace the 1.5 inch long white thermistor located at the very top of the cooling coils.

The reset button is set up to open the circuit if excess current is drawn by a failed Element. It works by getting hot and switching off due to current above its rating. The burnt wiring more llikely happened over a period of time because of a resistive joint in the block getting hot due to the high current that water heaters consume. It seems that the element has failed if the reset button does not get the system working.

Make sure that the spray bar when lifted by the water pressure is NOT hitting the dish rack OR has excessive friction. Test by manually lifting and turning.

Also the jets must exit at an angle to provide the torque.

Top rack not cleaning, possibly spinner not spinning?


Try twirling the spinner by hand to see if it is binding. If it looks ok then there could be something plugging the water passage to the spinner. If you have access to a water hose you could run water into that verticle passage pipe and see if there is an obstruction. If so it can be taken apart for cleaning.

BISSELL 1699 :WATER PUMPS THRU HOSE BUT NOT TO FLOOR NOZZLES


Did you blew thru the heater with both hoses off of it? If you did and it was clear, could be the pump, it is just working weakly. Is the top cover flush with the base in the back? If it has broken loose and has risen up, then it won't work. Here is a diagram that may help:

Water and clearen not coming out.


If the modle is an old modle the heater could be blocked,or if it a new modle try taking of the of the handle and ad a small shim to the bottom of the handle plunger to make it a little bit longer ,the plunger might not be reaching the valve,
also unscrew the clear cap which which is on top of the red spinner to see if the white filter under the spinner is clean and free from debris.
when you put the cap back on make sure its not to thigt and the spinner move freely, if the suction is poor make sure the red lint filter in the clean water tank is clean
