Question about De Dietrich 18 in. VW7451 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher I have a VZ9636 dishwasher - about 10 years old. It has blown the whole house circuit twice this week - and the fuse has, of course, blown. Is it overheating, has it run its life's course - is there an easy fix. Who can look at for me? Keith

How do i run a test / diagnostic mode for the bosch sge63e05uc (evolution series) dishwasher?


Are the instructions on how to run the diagnostic test listed in the manual? FYI, I couldn't run the test on my Bosch DW because it was just too broken. Over the years the dishwasher essentially fried its own circuit board with excessive heat, which I learned is a problem common to Bosch DW's. Bosch told me the lifespan of my model was 10 years; mine was 11 years old (but was repaired once or twice). I replaced it with a Miele; no problems yet after 4 1/2 months.

KitchenAid kudpo1flss dishwashe wont do anything. If you push the buttons to start wash nothing lights up and it will not start. thanks for any help you can provide.


Hello,
I have this identical model and have had this identical problem twice now, as the dishwasher is 6 years old. I contacted my appliance parts store and they sold me a thermal fuse. Changed it out, less than $25, worked like a charm. Tech ability needed is 4/10 to disassemble door, rewire fuse, reassemble.

The dishwasher wont turn on. I'm not sure if is fused or not. How can I fix it?


Many dishwashers, due to their power consumption, are on their own house circuit. It may have blown the house fuse or circuit breaker. Ours does it about once every 6 months or so. I just reset the circuit breaker. I'm sure an electrician would tell me to replace the dishwasher or have it serviced to determine why it periodically blows the circuit, so if it has blown the circuit breaker, you should determine why before running it again (unlike me!).

Frigidaire dishwasher does not complete cycle


Power from the house
Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch
The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch
Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

It does not rinse properly, leaving a film on


Pump worn out, using too much soap and depending on where you live there may be a more concentrated amount of minerals in the water. Florida residents are having that problem in spades due to our drought.

No power to dishwasher


Do the following:
  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable. Replace if defective.
  5. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.

NO POWER TO THE MACHINE


Hello. I can help you. Since you already checked out the power, skip that step and look at the latch.

If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch

Dishwasher trips the fusebox.


You have a obvious short circuit.
Remove the lower panel and inspect the drain valve solenoid attached to the pump beside the motor.
These GE solenoids will stick and melt causing a short circuit.
If not that, open the front panel and inspect all wires for a break.

There seems to be an electrical fault in my dishwasher. It is a slimline candy dishwasher purchased only three years ago. Everytime I try to start it all the electricity goes in the downstairs of my house....


Hello sue by rne..
If your fuse blows when you are running the dishwasher alone, I would agree that your dishwasher may have a problem however becuse you stated that it works sometimes..I am more apt to believe that when you run the dishwasher in conjunction with other equipment on that same fuse that the overload condition happens because you've added that dishwasher to an already loaded circuit. The problem is that when you say that you turned off all other electrical equipment downstairs, you may or may not have shut off everything on the circuit the fuse feeds. If there is a way to isolate the dishwasher onto a seperate power feed that you know is not over-loaded then that would prove that the diwshwasher is ok or not.. If you aren't an electrician or trained in this, I suggest you get someone in that is. My initial impression of the problem from your description suggests that your dishwasher is OK but you are somehow overloading the circuit when other things are on.. Hope that helps...
