Question about Dishwashers

Strange blue liquid

We have tipped our benchtop dishwasher on it's front in order to replace the drainage hose. There's a container behind a panel at the rear that has blue liquid which has leaked. I bought it through the trading post & didn't come with a manual. I've searched and searched on the internet but can't find any reference to it and can't see it on diagrams for other dishwashers.

What is the blue liquid and is it imperative to the operation of the dishwasher?

Replace dishwasher drain hose F&P DW60


The attached assembly document might be helpful. To access the drain hose at the dishwasher end your best bet is to pull the dishwasher out from under kitchen cabinet and lay it on the floor on its side. Make sure you disconnect the mains power and the hose connections first. The hose should be accessible from the bottom of dishwasher.

My dishwasher whirlpool wp 79 lympia keeps on beeping due to a drainage block. But now I can't stop it beeping or to reset the dishwasher in order to start the program from scratch


Unplugthe power cord to your dishwasher. You can do this by manually removing thedishwasher from the wall and unplugging it, or you can flip the power switch toyour kitchen at the circuit breaker (although you will need light to drain thedishwasher hose). 2 Put on your gloves,and, using your screwdriver, unscrew the screws from the kick plate of yourdishwasher. The kick plate is the panel just below the door of your dishwasher.3 Place your bucket on the floor in front of the dishwasher. 4 Unhook the drainhose by pinching the ends of the clamp and sliding it down the hose. Remove theother end from the pump. There will be two hoses in your dishwasher. The drain hoseis the one that leads from the pump to the underneath of your kitchen sink. 5 Pointthe hose into your bucket to drain any debris. Twist and scrunch the hose tohelp remove the waste. 6 Test the hose by running water through it, and thenreattach your hose in the same manner in which you detached it from yourdishwasher.

The little vent above the words turbothermic plus is spitting out water during the cycle.


The fan assembly's drainage path is clogged. With time, food residue cloggs up the drainage path, inside the "Turbothermic" fan, and water accumulates during the drying cycle. The control panel, that houses the fan assembly, will need to be removed. Door panels will also need to come off. Unplug wires and drain hose to the fan, and loosen the round fan grill that secures the fan assembly (located inside the door). Take apart the fan assembly; unclogg drainage path and hose; and wash all parts. Re-assemble, install, and plug, the fan assembly, drain hose and door panels. Good Luck.

Hotpoint dishwasher buzz when turned on an thats all it does


If the buzz stops when you open the door it could be the water solenoid valve which if it is not filling with water there is a 90% chance it is the valve. Turn off the water supply going the dishwasher under the sink or by the pipe. Pull the dishwasher out and unplug it if the hose length allows it to pull out. Put a towel or pan under the dishwasher hose connection disconnecting the hose on the dishwasher valve. Remove the racks and tip the unit forward with the unit unplugged and unbolt the valve where the water inlet is connected. Undo the hose clamp and wire connector. Check the valve or order a replacement and reinstall clamps and connectors. Be very careful when using the unit the first few times that no water leaks from hose connections by using a tissue touching the connections to see if water is present. Mold sucks so use a flash light looking in the front panel and tissue even after replacing the unit back in its final place.

My clients unit is leaking substaintial water in


Check the drainage hose to see if its connected properly. it is located under the unit. it may be loose or, not connected correctly. if the drainage hose is connected properly, this will be a faulty water valve. replace if found to be faulty.

LG Dishwasher - drain hose replacement


Hello, I have just installed a similar model, and took the side panel off to see how it was put together ;)

The drain hose goes in the back of the dishwasher, then loops up the right side (as you are looking at the front)(this is to act as a "trap" to keep sewer gases from coming back into your washer, I assume), and then connects to the drain pump under the washer.

In order the change the hose, you will need to remove the left side panel, and the bottom panel, and this will give you access to the entire hose....

Hope this helps!

Flood protection is activating


Had the same problem on a Miele mashing. In my case trying to clear a drain blockage in a kitchen sink had probably forced water back into the washing machine and caused an internal leakage. Rather than remove the whole machine and tip it over, I opened the small panel at the front bottom (behind the skirting panel) (needs 'special' screwdriver for the 2 screws) and removed the water that was lying on the base of the machine. Not much (less than 5mm) but enough to lift the white polystyrene float (a round disc about 10cm diameter) which was activating the micro-switch and causing the F70 message.
