Check the pump, make sure it is working properly and pumping water out. If it is then check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged.

I would suggest you buy some CLR and run it through a full heavy cycle with the washer empty. Be sure to put it in all dispenser areas and sprinkle about 1/4 cup into the washer before starting.

SOURCE: GE dsd 6700 top rack glider wheels not turning,

remove the tray and look at the wheels to be sure they are completely attached to the tray itself. If they are spray them with PAM or another cooking spray product to lubricate them.

SOURCE: granddughter stood on dishwasher door and now it goes down too far when opening. Spring assembly (pulley type) is FINE...but door goes so far down bottom shelf nearly breaks dishes when pulling out

This happens when people leave the door down, I've seen it many, many times, sometimes the door/hinge assembly can be replaced or even bent back, sometimes it totals out the unit...Good luck !

Top rack slides all the way out

Most likely your dishwasher is not level, but is tilting forward. Just extend the front leveling legs down further to raise the front end of the dishwasher. Otherwise, the rack glides may be damaged or bent.

Top rack automatically slides out upon opening door


This is actually a feature to allow the user easy access of sliding out the top rack. A look at the parts diagram disclosed that there is no mechanism activating this and therefore could be assumed to be gravity driven. It would stop a few inches due to the action or rather inaction of the rollers which would require user intervention (pull).

The only modification I could think of is to change how the inner rails are attached by inclining it to prevent the sliding out. The idea would be to lean in the upper rack to prevent gravity from sliding it out. Am not sure if inclining the entire dishwasher would affect the overall performance but it is also a possibility.

I have taken the liberty of including the diagram of the upper track should you wish to reference it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to Stop the dishwasher from breaking my glasses

This shelving costs $16 plus $20 for powder coating.
Very easy to assemble taking about 2 hours.
It will stabilize your dishwasher trays so glasses wont fall over. Therefore wont break.
Buy 2 large Baking racks with 1 cm holes from Myers for $8 each.
Use your Angle Grinder to cut to size, making sure the cross wires running from left to right are on top of the long runs. This is because your glasses would slip all the way to the front, if you mounted the racks up the wrong way.
Basically I cut off only one side of the rack, using the cutoff piece for the middle hole.
Next flatten those legs that wont let the rack sit flat down, by using your vice and hammer.
See the diagram below how wide the framing supports wires are apart, that is why nothing stands up on them.
You may have to discard other supplied movable racking.
But the inserted racks, with a hole cut in the middle rack to allow a raised support wire some space, are very stable.

Now after cutting hammering and bending the racks loose some coating and will rust with little rust marks appearing on the edges of all your crockery and cups.
Therefore you will need to powder coat them any colour for years of protection.
Just find a powder coater in the yellow pages and give him the cutout racks.
To save money I told him to coat my Black racks to any colour in his machine, which turned out white.
Note the glass which now stands up stable and straight.

I have an Electrolux icon floor model. I set it to clean after pulling the racks, the lock light came on but nothing happened. I left it for about 15 mins and still nothing. I turned off the clean cycle...

On the E30EW85ESP3 model I had to pull the racks "and" the supports mounted on the side walls. Otherwise it would not allow the clean cycle to begin. Hope this helps.

Not dispensing detergent properly---not getting top rack clean-------could this be a problem with the kitchen drain? I clean the filters often. I have Model SHU43C Thanks for the help, Barbara...

Hello Barbra. Not likely a drain problem because the machine is evacuating of the water from the sump. The bottom rack i assume is ok.
So the top rack in not doing it's job.
1.......clean out all of the timy holes in the spray arm.
2.......make sure there is nothing stppind the top arm from turning
give it a flick to see if it spins around freely
3..... tall object in the bottom can stop the arm from turning.
4.......some bosch machines have a divertor valve to alternate the water from the top to bottom racks. The valve. if faulty can be stuck in the bottom position not allowing the top arm to turn. Yopu can check this by turnint both arms to line up with easch other, say both arm ends pointing to you . then close the door and start the machine. after a short while of hearing the water swishing, open the door and see if the arms ahve moved. if both arms are turning then you know the divertor valve is ok. Even if your model does not ahve a divertor valve this is a good way of testing the spray arm operation.
Always use good quality soap and avoid tablets. use powder and make sure you have rinse aid in the dispenser.

I had renters in my home and they lowered the top rack and now I do not know how to raise it back up. It is so low my plates do not even fit in the bottwom! How do I raise the top rack?

look on the sides of the upper rack, if you see tabs press them in while lifting the rack. If you see no tabs look at the side rails, if you see 3 sets of wheels then pull the rack all the way out and set it on the next set of wheels. Good Luck

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher and the 3rd level spinner broke off. I have a new one and now need to know how to replace it.

the manifold in the back of the dishwasher needs to come out. you can either pop it all the way out it only undo it halfway if your arm is small enough.. there are either 2 tension clips or 2 screws holding it to the top and back. if you undo the top of the manifold and pull it down you should be able to slide the new part in place. the plastic push pin goes on top of the manifold and the spinner goes on the other side. it may be a little difficlt to push the 2 together..

Using the stop watch feature

"Chronograph" is watch terminology for 'stop-watch'.
There are 3 small dials on the watch.  The main dial has a minute hand and an hour hand.  The big second hand on the main dial is not for the main time of the watch.  It is for measuring seconds for the stopwatch.
The 2 small dials at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock will give you minutes and 1/10 of a seconds.  
There are 2 buttons on the side of the watch. Top Button:  Start/Stop Bottom Button: Reset
To set the chronograph to its default position, you would pull out the stem to the first position and push the buttons.  Also, pull the stem out further to the 2nd position and push the buttons.

Oven racks

I just cleaned my non self cleaning stove; a task I thought would be daunting. I sprayed some oven cleaner in my cold stove, closed the door and left it overnight. The next morning, everything wiped clean VERY easily. I was surprised. then, I had to try to get the oven racks back in...hilarious! I actually stopped trying for a while, and that's how I found this site. Anyway, after 2 breaks of frustrating effort to get the racks back in, I realized I only needed to FLIP THE RACK OVER! The triangles on the front sides of the rack should point up...although it seems as if it should be the opposite. I guess I should have paid attention to what they looked like before I took them out.

Hey, it was pretty funny to me!
