Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a technika diswasher,not sure of the model, is approx 3 years old and has a big dial on the left hand side with 7 wash functuions and the power button is smaller and is on the RHS. I cant remember how to reset the wash settings. I thought that by pushing in the large dial this set the wash cycle but a technician told be that you have to hold your finger on the start/pause button until the green light flashes, and turn the dishwasher off then back on. Can you please give me a step by step summary of how to reset the wash cycle becuase I am sure taht I am not doing is right.

I have the same model. You just turn the dial to the setting you want, push the dial back in, turn the (right) power button on then turn the smaller start button on. I use different cycles all of the time depending on whats in the load and this works fine for me.

Bosch Diswasher


Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.

Will not quit running on wash cycle for over 8 hours. Water soapy and hot.


Hard to help much without you posting the manufacturer and model number but if your dishwasher is more than a few years old and it has a mechanical dial , I would suspect that dial / timer has failed and needs to be replaced.

Please post back here what you find, OK?

Good Luck!

My frigidare diswasher is leaking from a left side black hose


Check the hose first - it could be split or damaged esprcially if it's old. Check all the clamps to be sure they are tight. Chack all connections to the dishwasher and drain spur under the sink. Check the drain trap fro any leaks.

Sticking programer dial


Hello zxnigel,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, The program timer on my dishwasher is sticking.
And you have to move the dial by hand as it is taking 3 hours to do the wash cycle
I think the timer needs to be replaced!

What brand an model is your machine?
And how old is your dishwasher?

Let me know this information, please.


Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive applaince
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Technika Diswasher


Hi ,I have a leaking problem with aTechnikaTDX20W and have discovered from service that it is the spray arm which has cracked along the seam edge . This then spays the door seals and they leak. unfortunately the part is out of stock which seems to be a problem with Technika. If anyone can help with a new spay arm I would appreciate it. I have tried te glue it however didnt work. The dishwasher is only three years old and I am considering buying an Australian made one to ensure parts. Worth a check of yours. Regards,Brian.

My kenmore built in dishwasher is leaking out the front


change the door gasket. also check to see if the wall hasn't "sprung out" of position this will always cause leaks if the side walls aren't supported.

My Kenmore diswasher gets stuck between the quick rinse and drying cycle


I am having the same issue as described above. I think it is either the timer, thermostat (temp assure), or thermostat (temp boost) that needs replacing. The dial gets stucks in both the wash temp boost cycle and rinse temp boost cycle. However, I don't have a picture of the temp assure or boost part. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks. -Bill
