You may have an overheat sensor in this unit. Usually, they are small buttons about 3/4 inch in diameter secured to the bottom of the tub and having two wires attached. Find and replace it.

Our 3 month old ge adora dishwasher stopped working properly yesterday. Made funny noise and later I started smelling something burning. Opened it and noticed no water was in it. Restarted and still n


Sounds like the water inlet valve isn't working. Check your house water pressure and make sure it's not above 80 psi. If it isn't, then call a repair company that handles GE warranty work.

Kenmore 13789 draining/cleaning issues


Check your wash arms - make sure the holes or nozzels are clear (not blocked), and make sure they are free to turn. Make sure you are not over-loading the dishwasher or placing large plates or pans in front of the soap dispenser. Next is to check to see if enough water is going into the DishWasher (DW). This varies with different models, so it's hard to tell you how much is enough. Next thing to check is to make sure the heater is working to heat the water during the wash cycle. (Listen for the soap dish to open, then open the door 10 or 15 minutes later and see if the water is hot.) If your dishwasher has a removable filter, you need to take that out and clean it at least once a month. And finally, if your dishwasher is all encrusted with calcium and hard-water deposits, you probably need to run a dishwasher cleaner in the machine. (Use Dishwasher Magic, or Finish Corp's Dishwasher cleaner, or Glisten, or even Lemi-Shine detergent-booster powder or their dishwasher cleaner.
Hope this helps!

Sounds like the dishwasher is not getting enough water during it's fill cycle due to low water pressure on supply line or the dishwasher pump is not working correctly. Could be obstructed with food matter, etc.Hope this helps

Bosch SHU3300 dishwasher stuck on hot water intake (w/ no power)


It sounds like the fill vlave is stuck open. This can happen if your pressure is low or if the machine is old. I would start by replacing the vlave.

WIRLPOOL DISHWASHER COLD WATER CLEAN ONLY!!!


HI Nick- the element in the dishwasher dries the dishes and sometimes boosts the heat of the water. Your water should come in already hot, so the problem is either your hot water heater or that the plumbing line was switched to cold by mistake. Or that people are bathing, laundering, etc. and using all available hot water right before you run the dishwasher.

Smell of burning


The Element is shorting out, tripping the rcd. replace the element, thermostat,and any cut outs that are in the element cricuit. The element should not be glowing which means the stat is shot and the safety cutout for the element is shot also, while you`re at it check out the circuit board for dry joints, discoloured resisters, bulging capacitors etc.

This is VERY dangerous situation, as the machine has the potential to set your house alight and burn it down!. If you continue to use it in it`s current condition you may well damage other componants - rendering the machine B.E.R - Beyond Economical Repair. I will will advise You to never to leave this machine unattended, do not go out after turning it on and have a nice afternoon in the park etc, you may well come home to a pile of ashes!

My tablet won't dissolve.


Sounds to me like the dishwasher isn't filling up with cold water. I had a similar problem a few months ago, caused by limescale blocking the inlet and drain valves. Might be worth trying some kettle limescale cleaner solution and putting it inside the machine - and leaving it overnight then trying the machine out with no dishes etc in it.
