Re: older portable dishwasher

Is it filling all the way? add a pitcher or two of hot water to it in the wash cycle. if it cleans the dishes better that your problem. Now you can just delime it and be all set.

Dishwasher won't Drain all the way how do o fix this

It could depend on the brand and model number of the dishwasher; for example, many older GE dishwashers would develop draining problems as they age. But regardless of the brand, a drain problem could be caused by an obstruction in the drain hose (most common), or in the air-break (if you have one), or at the check valve; or something may be blocking or stopping the drain pump impeller. If you got a new garbage disposal installed, make sure that you (or the installer) remembered to knock out the hard-plastic plug at the end of the dishwasher connector port. Also make sure you don't have a clog right there. If all that checks out okay, then you will probably want to call a professional because the next steps involve removing and dismantling the drain pump.

Hi I have a DS605SS Fisher & Paykel Single Drawer dishwasher, I rent the house and the landlord says that it is quite new can you please confirm the year? Also when we turn it on it runs for like 20...

Heeeyyy - these have been around for ages no one can tell you the age unless you bought it and know where it was bought from to trace the serial numbers...

I fail to understand why this is your problem when you are renting the house. Tell your stingee landlord to get it fixed - you are getting shafted,,,

Its unacceptable for a Landlord to do this..

Water is not draining completely from the dishwasher. About 1-2 inches remain in the bottom. Seems to drain most of the water during the wash cycle, but a bit remains. Thoughts on how to fix this?

either the check valve on the end of the drain hose that connects to the drainpump motor is closed shut or sometin is clogged inside the drain hose..... also maybe you pump motor assmbly is faulty... u prob need wet/dryshop vac and drain it out from inside then check that hose... hope this helps... possibly may need to replace that drain hose,,, prob not worth reparing if its a pump motor depending on which brand some had 5 yr part warranties on the pump motor assembly

Condensation in dishwasher

Make sure you aren't selecting the eco setting to conserve power. Running a dishwasher in that mode disables the heating element that dries the dishes at the end of a cycle. Here a few ideas you can try,... with an empty dishwasher.. start a cycle and make sure you do not use that ECO mode if it has that feature.. then stop the dishwasher when it near the end of the cycle and open the door ./.. check to see if the water has been drained and that the heater element is on and hot. If there is a high volume of water in the bottom of the dishwasher, make sure the darin filter screen is clean and not restricting water flow... If that is clean.. and you have a lot of water in the bottom pan, you could have a problem with the pump, a hose in line with the pump or your house drain system is restrictive.. Good luck... and Hope this helps you..

Older Kitchenaid Dishwasher doesn't fully drain and smells

Hi Jay. Remove the lower front panel and you will see the drain hose. On the machine end of the drain hose is a small drain pump. Disconnect the hose and the pump and you will most likely find a partial blockage in the form of a piece of glass or something preventing a total drain.

please mark this answer as a fixya!

Kenmore Dishwasher 665.15895791 will not drain

what sani-rinse does is turn the heater back on in the rinse cycle. You first should check the heater for voltage either at the start of the first cycle or do a ohms check.

Kenmore dishwasher has never cleaned dishes

make sure you are getting plenty of water. Start the D/W without putting soap in disp. run for about 1 minute, Make sure there are no suds inside. If there is, run full cycle to get excessive amount of soap out. If no suds check in pump resevoir to make sure its not clogged.
