I dont know what model you have; however, my GE dishwasher (GSD5911) had the same issue. I discovered that there is a flow valve located inside the unit under the screen at the back. If you remove the screen, somewhere centerish there is a valve that you can screw out with your hand. It has a rubber piece in it that wears out. I was able to take the part to a local appliance parts store and picked up a new piece for $17CDN. Replaced the part and the dishwasher drains properly.

We have a 6.25 /Briggs & Straton we have cleaned


You should have two fuel lines going from the carb to the tank, one has a filter,

make sure both lines are good without any breaks or cracks. if the filter is dirty

you may need to replace it. you can fish it out of the gas tank by making a hook

on a wired coat hanger, try to remove the filter and put the line back in the tank

make sure they are both submerged, if it runs just replace the filter, good luck!

My Bosch diswasher SL15N1B has started to make a knocking noise from the mains water valve at the end of the hose. Why should this start to happen as the machine has not been moved so it is not the lay of...


there is a screen filter in the hose end where it attaches to the supply valve. this is usually under your sink. turn off the water valve and undo the supply hose ( usually gray on a bosch). pull out the rubber washer, and then remove the filter. clean and reinstall it. the noise is usually due to the sediment in the filter causing the water pressure to fall. you can hear the fill valves flutter when it is trying to take water in.

My mighty lite only runs on half throttle. model #ut21506 Thanks


Check air filter if dirty clean with mild soap and water let dry apply very thin ammount of oil ( any type will do) to sponge type filter put a rag around filter squeeze excess out replace filter. Check spark plug clean if dirty, check electrode in center of the plug if rounded it should be replaced, gap check according to specifications. check ceramic filter in fuel tank if installed, if so empty fuel carefully remove filter by hlolding line and filter. Don't let line fall back into tank. find somthing to hold it so not to damage line. Or ask a friend or family for a hand clean filter with carburetor cleaner, replace filter. fill tank with proper fuel mixture. Good luck! Happy trimming!

After a wash there is a sand like grit on cups and dishes. Cleaned filter and spray arms also run empty diswasher with detergent on high temperature. Anything else I can do?


two packets of unsweeted lemon kool-aid (generic is ok)

run empty. (no detergent)

in future, use less dishwasher detergent, that is the source of the grit.

Dishes still dirty after wash cycle


It would be real helpful to have you provide the manufacterer and model number to get more specific with solution.
-Have you changes dishwasher soap powder recently? Buy a box of Electrosol or Cascade and see what happens. The ultracheep versions actually have caused cleaning problems, especilly in water-conserving dishwashers.
-Under the lower rack is the sump area with a filter that can be removed, usaully by removing several screws. Pull that filter, rinse is as best you can. Inspect under where the filter was and remove all debris. Watch out for broken glass that is found in most well used diswashers, it is hard to see and sharp! Reasemble the filter.
-If problems continue and if this diswasher is several years old, plan on getting the wash pump motor replaced (or replace the diswasher with a name brand, Energy Star model.) Good Luck!
Please update me with what you found. OK?

LG LDF8812 Diswasher - Self Cleaning Filter not cleaning itself


you should not have to use any type of screwdriver to remove filter. The rest of it , leave alone. Take both rotors out and run unit. Both rotors top and bottom should push water through at a good rate. If not, a blockage in water /motor line. I suspect the rotors simply need to be properly cleaned, If not rotating properly it will cause undesolved residue.

Doesn't clean dishes completely, especially the top rack. also it doesn't completely empty out the detergent dispenser.


To the people here with the poor cleaning problems:
Try these steps:
Buy a small box of Cascade or Electrosol diswashing powder. Use only it for 30 days and report back. Do not use gel, tablets or ultra low end detergent. I have proven that ultra cheap powder WILL cause problems.
Also, fill a bowl or large cup with white vinigar, place it in the bottom shelf of of the empty dishwasher. Do not add any detergant. Run a normal or quick cycle.
If you still have poor cleaning, it is time to call for service or remove the filter beneath the lower rack and search for debris that will need to be removed.
Please report back with your results and the make/model of the dishwasher. Good Luck!
