    Did you get this taken care of already?

    Yes, there are things that hold the drum steady while in transit and for transport and setup in the home. That being said, I can't address the concrete block you have. I suggest you ask at the place where you bought it. Otherwise, these other retainers are usually bright yellow, green or orange and if you don't remove these the machine will make a racket and walk around on its feet... no telling just what damage may result.

Just leave that concrete block there, it is to prevent your tub from taking off skywards.

No water going into machine

Does it Hum or buzz when you begin the wash cycle? Just no water? is the supply valve turned on? Hot and cold both should be on.
if all you get is a humm or buzz and no water, you have a faulty valve that will need to be replaced so the machine can complete the wash cycle.

My dishwasher is installed, but it won't go past the "washing" cycle. I have very hot water and am not using the "sanitize" option. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Your Question:
"My dishwasher is installed, but it won\'t go past the "washing" cycle. I have very hot water and am not using the "sanitize" option. Any ideas what could be causing this? "
Hi, I have ideas about your dishwasher. It apparently has a failed timer.
If this is a new dishwasher installation of a new machine. Then it is defective and is covered under the manufacturer's warranty.
The hot water issue is fine. A dishwasher's internal water temperature should be at least 140 degrees, so the machine will heat up water to accomplish this.
I would cancel the cycle the machine is in test it in various cycles.
I would try it in sanitize as well. If it completes the full cycle. Then use it.
However, if it hangs up again. I will need a new timer mechanism.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions at all, reply to me through this website.
Best Regards,

No cold rinse, only hot

Either the wires have come loose on the water valve or you have a defective water valve.Open the lid and look at the water valve. Are all wires connected?
If yes, replace the water valve.

Dish washer

If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is
cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher.
Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature
of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than
120 degrees Fahrenheit.
