Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Looking for info on our churches dishwasher - Toledo Kitchen Machines. Model # TDA27. I can describe it as a single cycle dishwasher. Wondering what type of detergent to use and if there is a manual available. There is a small seal leak between the motor and the pump, other than that everything works. ( this has not been used in 10+ years).I am now in charge of bldg maintenance and am trying to get everything in working order. Any help is appreciated. I am guessing the circa is mid to late 60's

Above is a service manual, it's generic, but, they are all essentially the same, above that, are some DIY help links, with all of that you should be all good.
The BEST is FINISH, I find that is best, I also find, that the "Tablets" with the "Finisher" inside. It does depend somewhat on your water, you should first find out, how "Hard" or "Soft" your water is, then get a HIGH QUALITY, detergent, all of those are pretty much the same NEVER get substandard stuff, it WILL ruin your DW, real quick. Remember to always clean the DW, every now and then with a DW cleaner.

Can i fit a glass lid to my Rangemaster Toledo 90? It has never had one fitted and wondering if one can be fitted. Thanks

No not if it has never had one fitted by the manufacturer as it wont have a safety device fitted to close the gas supply in the advent that the lid is closed while a burner is still a light which would shatter the safety glass and cause injury to the user. Some glass lidded cookers where imported to England when i was an apprentice gas engineer and no safety device fitted and the lids exploded and where soon made illegal.

Is there a way to get the water is described in the video out of this dishwasher. Kitchen aide w103111238

I like the way you call the fishies in your washer! Seriously, there are three probable causes. First, pull off the spinner, bottom plate and yank the filter screens. Clean them thoroughly and look for clogs below them. Next, look for the water level sensor that detects water in the bottom and keeps the flush pump running as long as there is. Make sure it cycles up and down. Finally, make sure you hear the pump running when the draining cycle starts...

Dishwaher not draining

apart from cleaning the filters at the bottom, have you checked if the kitchen drain is not clogged. Also if you have a garbage disposal unit in the kitchen sink, make sure it has been run before you turn on the dishwasher. Will be helpful if you can describe the problem with details of the dishwasher and also which wash cycles have you tried and list any alarms lights on the panel of dishwasher.
