Question about Dishwashers

Dishwasher not washing

Dishwasher was operating fine but quite noisely (dial/timer was quite noisy until it made it to the heated dry cycle). Now, it is very quiet when you turn the dial but it will only fill up and heat the water - no wash no draining! Obviously there is power, the latch is fine (I took off the front panel and checked the latch mechanism and the dial and wire connections leading up to it - nothing visible to the eye. Air gap on sink is clear. No visible gookus stuck inside the dishwasher. Suggestions???? Timer is operational. GE Potscrubber Model #GSD650

Fan is noisy intermittently well after wash is finished


It depends on what model you have. The fan is usually operating when the dry cycle is on. The dry cycle can be quite long compared to the actual wash (which ends when the rinse water is drained out). The dry cycle uses the steam in the dishwasher to circulate around the dishes. The fan keeps running until the full cycle is complete. If you are hearing heavy noises when the fan is running, then the bearing of the fan maybe damaged and you need to replace the fan.

Kenmore 110.60812990 will not stop


if it's not advacing in time dry you have a bad timer,that timer should count down no matter what the dryer is doing,if you have it in auto then it could be no heat,when it's in auto or more or less cycle the heat comes on and the timer won't move until the heat shuts down,when the heat is off timer advances,when the heat starts the timer stops,it will do this until the clothes are dry and then timer will shut off but in timed cycle,timer isn't counting down get a new timer.

Fisher and Paykel dishwasher noisy fan


Have you got your dishwasher on an extended drying cycle?

Normally it works for about 10 minutes after the wash cycle is complete - not hours.

Dishwasher stalls


If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Hi my hoover 6612 dishwasher does its pre-wash but then when the light for wash comes on it does nothing. I wondered if it might be a capacitor which needed replacing but I can't find one - any ideas??


Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

Check the harness to the motor

Check start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor

I see an error code
If your dishwasher has a digital readout and you see an error code, it may indicate a problem with the unit. If this happens, look up the error code in your owner's manual to find out what the problem is.

Good Luck
Thanks for using FixYa

Jennair dishwasher timer stops halfway thru wash cycle.


Try using a cycle that doesn't boost the heat. Usually a quick or china/delicate cycle. Any cycle that heats the water pauses the timer until it is done. Some machines even select this with heated dry. The sensor that controls this can go bad and stop the timer completely. If it operates for the complete cycle , look for the sensor and replace it. There is usually a wiring diagram somewhere in the machine sometimes in an envelope inside the door, control panel or behind the front bottom panel

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
