    lockout keeps coming on by itself...will not turn off NO matter what I try...HELP!!!!!!!



1 Answer

I believe if you hold the lock button for more than 3 seconds it will unlock. This is a feature to prevent toddlers from turning the dishwasher on or changing settings.

Why does the lower spray arm keep coming loose on a Kenmore 587.15189402

Is this one of those drawer-style dishwashers, or a regular DW? I can't seem to find that model number in my search. If it's a regular (door-opens-downward) DW, then you probably don't have the lower wash arm attached properly. On some DW's you turn the hold-down "screw" in the reverse direction to tighten it. If it's a new Kenmore Elite DW, then you turn the lower square or geared section 1/8th turn clockwise to lock it. Of course, you may have a damaged or stripped plastic part that just won't stay....

Bosch dishwasher model SHX46A why does the on/off switch and lights stay on while the dw stopped running?

The dw was not quite running. It does pause between cycles. The power scrub cycle means that you had the machine on the longest of all cycle choices. There's almost always a light and a normal cycle. The pots and pans cycle is a power scrub option. Yes all the lights would be on until they switched to a different part of the cycle. Do you have a DRYING light? That would be the one to look for as far as the dw being finished. :)

I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01FLSS2. I finished replacing the door balancer cord and started the dw up and it started leaking underneath from the bottom somewhere around the middle of the...

In this Kitchenaid dishwasher model KUDS01FLSS2, the whole motor and water pump assembly simply sits (I think loose) in the bottom of the DW. From the inside, it is the round mechanism where the sprayer is mounted above the chopper, all one piece sitting in (or mounted with) a large rubber washer around it. Somehow this assembly had lifted up slightly on one side which allowed the water to just poor through the bottom floor of the DW. I simply pressed down on the whole mechanism positioning back in its proper place. It did not take much pressure at all to position it back into its place. This stopped the leak and is working like a charm.

How do i get the lock off my dishwasher


If you are referring to the Child-lock feature which deactivates the buttons from use then usually on Kenmore dishwashers you can deactivate this child lock by holding the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 or more seconds. This should get the panel to respond again.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.

I have a Zanussi Fitted dishwasher and I notice that the board under my kitchen seems to be getting black,I think it is the dishwasher leaking water from underneath.. Is there any common problems with this...

Yes sounds like some kind of water leak. Take of the front plinth and check underneath the units and DW. I presume you DW is adjacent to the sink so please cheak all pipes including waste asap. Also opening the DW door whilst it is running can splash water, over a period of time this could effect wood material and cause your problem.

Door doesnot close

The LG LDS 5811 and all models that start with 'LDF" do not have a door latch. They do have a child lock _but_ that feature does not lock the door closed or open, it just locks the controls so the DW can not be turned on or settings changed.
So, please look at the right side edge of the opened door and post the model # back here.

Water won't fill

when facing the dw pull it out from under counter and on the left side there is a panel held on with 2 screws. take that off and under there are the float switches for the overflow. those switches is what causes the pump to run all the time but do nothing else.
