All appliance manufacturers test 1 out of every 5-10 appliances as they come off the assembly line. If you got a new unit and it is wet inside, this is a good thing, this means that your unit was actually factory tested. Obviously, they aren't going to take the time to dry out every unit that is tested, they box them up and ship them out knowing that they are going to be in a customer's home very soon anyway.

SOURCE: too much foam in dishwasher,

Scoop out as much suds as you can (or with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner), then run a cycle without soap of any kind. Hopefully, that will get rid of the mess.

What solution will fix a leak under the door of the dishwasher?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

It is possible that one of your gaskets need to be replaced inside of your dishwasher. I would recommend having a technician come out and properly diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps. -Matt

New dishwasher already wet inside when opened for first time! Is it ok?


Sounds like it was in a flood.
I'd sure try to send it back.
Be blessed.

Dishwasher control light blinking


1 Press down the overfill protection float on the floor of the dishwasher's tub in the right, front corner near the door. If it cannot move up and down freely, the "clean" light will flash.
2 Make sure the dishwasher's water supply is turned on.
3 Look for suds on the inside of the dishwasher and wipe them off with a wet cloth. If the washer's sensor detects suds or foam, it may not run. Use the correct amount of dishwasher soap, not hand soap or detergent for washing dishes in the sink, to ensure suds and foam do not form. Also, make sure the cap on the rinse aid dispenser is secure--this will keep suds and foam from forming as well.
4 Close the dishwasher door. Push the "normal wash" button, then push the "heated dry" button. Push the "normal wash" button again, and push the "heated dry" button again.
5 Watch for all of the lights on your Kenmore dishwasher's panel to turn on and then turn off. The washer may start a new wash cycle at this point; if you do not want it to do so, press the "cancel" button. Otherwise, allow the dishwasher to run through this cycle.

Jhe4576. I own a Genie SV125Q, 5 gallon wet/dry


Where did you buy this unit from? Go back there and ask if they have filters for yours. Otherwise look in the Yellow Pages for vacume cleaner repair shops. Sometimes they have all kinds of filters for all kinds of vacumes. You can try places like Wal Mart. What you want to look for are filters that will work with your unit. The foam filter you refer to is called a pre-filter. It traps the bigger particles so they won't damage your paper filter or clog it up especially if it's wet stuff you're picking up. You can remove that foam filter and gently wash it out in the sink with a mild dishwashing liquid and warm water. And even sometimes if you have time you can wash a paper filter out by hosing it out from the inside, with just a gently rinsing on the outside. Don't use any solvents on it just soap and water. And don't use high pressure either, as it will destroy the paper. I have cleaned my paper filters several times before I finally had to replace them. You can also look at places like Lowe's. They carry shop vacs and a whole assortment of attachments as well.

Vacuuming up water with Shop Vac model 84M200


when picking up dry materials use the foam sleeve that slips on and the blue cloth (assuming there all blue) over it, there should be a ring that slides over blue cloth to hold it in place over the foam sleeve, for wet pick up u can use the foam sleeve minus the blue cloth but let it dry out before picking up dry stuff, you can pick up both wet and dry with a cartrige filter that looks simular to a car air filter and it slips over the foam sleeve, but let it dry out after picking up water before picking up dry cause itll just clog it up

Noisy vibrating sound from bottom RHS of dishwasher


I have a new Hotpoint and have the same problem, I am told from Hotpoint that there is too much foam being generated and the pump makes this noise trying to pump the foam, the answer seems to be cut down on the detergent, or make sure the dishes are very dirty and greasy when you put them in as this cuts down the foam, I have just tried this and it does seem to work.
Never had a problem with the last 2 dishwashers always put the dishes in well rinsed, it must be new programing.
Hope this helps.

Kudt01flss all wet inside after heat option on


Hi iveynafiz

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: this model kudt01flss new dishwasher, very nice look but do not dry well, always wet inside what can I do to fix it?

I've seen this type of thing a lot. A new d/w is still under warranty. The best advice is to use it. If they don't fix it the first time out, demand a new one.

Feel free contact me again!

Top Arm not spinning on Whirlpool DU1145


It looks like there is not enough water pressure to spin the spray arms. Loss of pressure may be due to various things, like damaged seal, cracked tubes, clogged filters, screens etc.
I suggest you take a look at the technician repair sheet that should be stored inside the front panel at the bottom of the door. Remove that panel under the door with screw driver. Inside, attached to the panel, you should find a troubleshooting guide and solution for technician. But it is easy to follow. Look at the section under "poor wash" and follow its recommendation. I had exact same problem - not enough water pressure. In my case, the chopper screen was clogged and the chopper assemply was broken. I followed the repair instruction above to remove the chopper assembly, cleaned the chopper screen and the washer now is as good as new. I will need to replace the chopper when the part arrives.
Good Luck
