Try putting one cup of uncooked rice to one cup of water (rather than a cup and a half of water). Also, to keep the rice white longer, you can add a few drops of white vinegar to the rice and water mixture before you turn it on. Hope this helps!

How do I clean the drain filter assembly on may tag dishwasher mdb4651awb

Sometimes this can only be gotten to by unscrewing the bottom spray arm in the basin of the DW. First, look in the bottom of your DW to see if you can unclog the screen by hand. This is the Drain Filter Assembly. It screens the waste so the pump doesn't get clogged. If you swipe stuff on the bottom of the DW like that leaf lettuce and rice, this might help.

Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened?

1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.

Good luck.

I was trying to clean my coffee grinder and when I took the bottom off a clear plastic came out and I can't get it back in.

see the steps:God bless you

  • 3 Unplug the grinder and remove the ground rice completely. Wipe again with a paper towel or clean cloth.
  • 4 Hand wash any removable lid to the coffee grinder with dishwashing liquid. Allow to air dry.

    I lost the plastic measuring cup that came with my Rival RC100 rice cooker, the markings on the inside of it tell's me the water amount I just need to know how much rice the cup held.

    The measuring cup you lost is equivalent to 3/4 cup or 180ml and this can make approximately 2 and 1/4 cup of cooked rice.
    For more details, you can download Owner's Manual at ,
    You can also inquire on this site about cup replacement.

    Replacement basket for Black & Decker HS800 Flavor Scenter Rice Steamer

    I would not recommend replacing just the plasic basket, too expensive. Once the plastic parts begin to fail, the uint has seen better days (our basket was still ok, but the unit started to leak out the bottom and the timer would stop during the steaming).

    Bought a replacment B&D Handy Steamer, oval shape allows longer food items to be steamed (approx 10"x8"), water res & can be filler while steaming. Price was $25 in local hardware (Jan 09). Not worth fixing the old one IMO.

    Cooking Rice

    Ironically, I came to this site with the same questin you posted. I just found my manual. This is how tha manual tells you to steam rice:

    Place one of the steamer baskets on the steamer base.

    Place 1 cup of rice and 10 ozs of water in the rice bowl.

    Place the rice bowl on the steamer basket and cover the steamer.

    Set timer for approximately 32 minutes, depending on your taste.

    Good luck!

    Cover latch

    You may need to tighten the screw for the metal post where it's held to the top lid. This should help to extend the metal post to reach over the plastic latch, enough to latch down the lid.
