Westinghhouse 907 dishwasher Sydney Australia

My 907 dishwasher (2 years old) has lost power & will not turn on. It seems there is no power getting to the dishwasher.I have checked the power point with another appliance which works so therefore it is not the power point. I have checked the power board & all is ok there too. I have checked all the filters, they are clear & unblocked. Is there anything else i can do rather than wait 6 days for service to come out please.

Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

Our 14 month old dishwasher will not turn on

if you are getting no lights on the display and assuming you have mains power getting into the dishwasher, the problem could be on the power control board located at the top part of the door module under the display panel.
Refer the control panel diagram item K253

You have to be careful when handling the dishwasher. Make sure it is disconnected from the main power and the water inlet is turned off. If in doubt call the service technician. You are still covered by parts warranty for 2-5 years (depending on part) See warranty policy in operators manual

I am locked out of cycle with clean light blinking green and cannot find my manual, dishwasher is about 1 year old. Is there a sequence to break this cycle? I turned off power for 60 seconds to no avail.

I have not seen this model in Australia, but normally if you hold down "Start/Stop" button for 3 to 5 seconds, that should clear the cycle.
Otherwise if you have a Clear button press that for 3-5 seconds.

Take off the bottom panel and check to see if you have electric where the electric line comes in to the dishwasher.Please be careful you may have a wire that came out of the wire nut connection. Hope this leads you in the right direction.

Our LG is only a couple years old and was very quiet at first. It has started making a very loud groaning noise when the water is spraying. Is it a pump going out?


In Australia I have seen similar problems with some recent models of LG dishwashers. Not sure if the ones sold in the US are any different.
One common problem I have seen with LG wash pumps from dishwashers which were sold 2-4 years ago, is that the motor becomes noisy after some time. The replacement motors which I have ordered is a different one and therefore revised as the predesessor was not reliable. The replacement motor has a different mounting bracket as well.
They are fairly cheap, but to change them is very difficult. Best to get a repairer as the machine needs to be thoroughly dismantled to allow you to get to the wash pump.

Maytag MDBtt60awb will not start. Power definitely at dishwasher as panel lights are on, however "start" button does nothing. Dishwasher is less than 2 years old. The panel buttons eventually turn off. ...

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

I need a blade and bowl for a Ovatio 3 Moulinex food processor. I live in Sydney Australia can anyone help ?

I would check out this site for parts, you can order, pay for and have delivered to your door. You can also let them know, before you order, that you live in Sydney Australia, and ask if there is anything you should have that is different. I think the parts will be the same, but it doesn't hurt to be sure. Good Luck.

Need motor & impellor for Hobart AM8

I havn't seen an AM8 in over 15 years.
Hobart will keep parts available for quite a few years past end of production, but this may be too long. The AM 10 and early 12's are compatable.
You need a 6 bolt pump to motor. Yours has the old cast iron wash arms. All the new have light stainless arms. Just checked my records. the new AM12 which superceeded your design was in 1981. Perhaps look around for a used AM14 which fits your tables and plumbing. Confirm the voltage is compatable.
The AM15 is the current spec and is far superior.

Hi julie

Chances are you are using to much detergent and the water is not hot enough. cut back on the detergent and run your hot water tap at the sink first and that should fix it.

Whirpool quiet partner dishwasher seems to have no power

Ok there is a thermal fuse mounted on the control board that shuts down when it gets too hot. Did you run a sanitize cycle? Even if customers dont use the sani cycle which i recommend the fuse may open due to poor wire connections. The new fuse kit comes with a new harness and new connectors. Check the old fuse to be sure its bad. Dont remove the connectors from the new switch at all - dont disturb them and they will work better.
