Water not draining away, what can I do


Take out the bottom rack and put it aside. In the bottom of the dishwasher, there is a plastic strainer that screws in. Remove the screws and set them aside with the strainer. Feel around for anything in the hole which could be blocking the drain. Often labels, soapscum, food particles, etc., get in there. If there is standing water, mop it out so you can see in there. After you've cleaned out the drain, replace the strainer with its screws and the bottom rack. Try the dishwasher out by letting in a little water (an inch) at the start of the cycle, then turn it to the end of the rinse cycle to see if the water drains out. Hopefully that will fix your problem without having to call in an expert.

Has a bad oder


There are a few ways that people use to clean a smelly dishwasher .. First check the strainer at the bottom of the dishwasher for any food residue .. remove that before treating the washer .. then you can do some or one or all of these to see what works for you
If the strainer is messy, pour a good layer of baking soda in the strainer , then pour in some vinegar, it will foam and clean the strainer .. periodically adding vinegar until the foaming stops.
Put a cup or two of vinegar in the washer and run an empty cycle , use it on hot water cycle.
Put in some bleach and run an empty cycle
Put some lemonaide mix in the washer and run it ..

Good luck

Dishwasher runs but no water is coming in


check strainer and clean. Strainer is located near the inlet. Hope the main water flow from the water tank is OK.

The part at the top of the dishwasher that spins around fell off during the wash cycle. How can I get it back on?


Hello
This is called the upper spray arm and there is a hole in the center of it that let's it slide on a shaft and then there is a cap that covers this shaft and helps hold it in place.
here is a web link that explains all of this and more ok so feel free to read all of it there is a lot of good information there

The sprayer arms seldom cause any trouble, but sometimes the spray holes in the arms become encrusted with detergent or minerals. When this happens, the holes must be cleaned out so that the arms will work efficiently. Remove the lower arm by twisting off the cap that holds it to the motor shaft. Wash it thoroughly with water and mild household detergent. Sharpen a lead pencil and break off the lead point. Use the tapered end of the pencil to **** out the holes. A wood manicure stick can also be used.

A clogged strainer can cause the dishwasher to flood or overfill. Clean the strainer regularly, or after each load of dishes is washed.Do not use toothpicks, matches, or metal objects for this job. Lightweight wooden sticks could break off in the ports, causing blockage; metal could scrape and enlarge the ports. After cleaning, place the sprayer arm back on the motor shaft and twist the cap back on to hold it in place. Follow the same procedure to clean the upper sprayer arm.
Removing and Cleaning the Strainer
The strainer is located directly under the lower sprayer arm. When the strainer becomes clogged with food and detergent debris, the dishwasher may flood or overfill. On some dishwashers, the strainer is a plastic or metal component consisting of two semicircular halves. To remove this type of strainer, pry it up. On other dishwashers, the strainer is a one-piece component. To remove this type, remove the cap that holds the sprayer arm on its shaft. Then remove the sprayer arm and the strainer.

Wash the strainer in the kitchen sink with water and a mild household detergent. Use a fairly stiff brush to get all the debris out of the holes and slots in the strainer. Rinse the strainer well and replace it. If part of the strainer lifts out for regular cleaning, check it and clean it -- if necessary -- after each load of dishes is washed.
Troubleshooting Leaks
If the dishwasher leaks, and you know the problem is not related to tub overfilling, the pump, or inlet valve problems, the plumbing connections may be faulty. Most dishwashers are connected to the water supply with metal pipe fittings, and the leak could be at these fittings. If the fittings are threaded, tighten them with an adjustable wrench. If this doesn't work, chances are the threads are stripped or the fitting is cracked or otherwise damaged. In this case, replace the fitting.
Most dishwashers discharge used water through a pipe or a hose connected to the drain or garbage disposer under the kitchen sink. If the drain line is made of flexible hosing, it may have cracked from prolonged exposure to hot water. Examine the hose; if it's damaged, replace it. If the hose is leaking at its connections with the disposer or dishwasher, tighten the fittings or clamps at the connections, or replace the clamps. Also check for water leaks around inlet valves, drain valves, and anywhere you see flexible hoses and hose connections. Leaks at clamps can be stopped by tightening or replacing the clamps. Leaks in hoses can be eliminated by replacing the hoses.

Wont drain


Pull out the bottom rack and make sure strainer is clear. If the outer strainer is clear remove the few screws around it to get to the other strainer to make sure it is also clear.
