Check the sump screens on the bottom of the interior of the unit in the pump area, then also the pump and food macerator knives in the pump for broken or bent blades and all drain hoses for food buildup that can slow drainage and lead to siphoning or food backwash back into the machine,you will need to remove the toe kick panel at the base of the machine to check the pump and macerator and drain hoses leading to the drain and garbage disposal if this is where it drains to,if these areas are plugged it cannot remove dirty water to rinse dishes correctly

Unable to eliminate odour from previous cooking despite the fact that I wipe the microwave with a soapy cloth & then with a clean cloth each time to Microwave is used


  1. Fill a plastic bowl with 1 qt. of warm water. Add 2 tbsp. of liquid dish soap and 1/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the water. Thoroughly mix the solution.
  2. Dampen a clean cotton rag in the solution. Wipe all inside surfaces of the microwave with the soapy rag to remove food debris and stains. Scrub stubborn residue with a nylon scrub brush.
  3. Moisten another cotton rag with warm water. Wipe the microwave surfaces with the rag to wash away soap and loose food debris. Thoroughly rinse the inside of the microwave.
  4. Dry the microwave's interior surfaces with paper towels. If odors remain in the microwave, fill a microwave-safe bowl with 1 cup of cool water. Add to the water 2 tbsp. of baking soda, half of a chopped lemon (including pulp and rind) and four whole cloves.
  5. Place a microwave-safe plate on the microwave turntable. Set the bowl on the plate.
  6. Heat the microwave on high for three minutes. Operate the microwave according to the manufacturer's directions. Keep the bowl in the microwave for 15 minutes.7
  7. Remove the bowl from the microwave. Wipe the microwave's interior surfaces with clean paper towels to remove steam moisture.
  8. Leave the microwave door open overnight to completely air out any remaining odors.

    Will not heat


    If everything else is working fine, the magnetron is the likely problem, "heats food and is the heart of the microwave oven" if more than five years old cheaper to replace the whole item.

    While dischwasher is running, water are leaking from the front.


    Depending on the model, there are corner seals (kenmore are black) at the base of the door these can fail , Frigidaire, Galax, and Whirlpool/ Tappan use small plastic diverters that are semi clear.
    If these are missing in the corners nearest the base of the door then this problem
    will occur. Also if you are using regular dish detergent, it will oversuds. One last note,
    if the dishwasher has not been used for a while due to handwashing on the disposal side
    of the sink, the soap will make its way into the sump of the dishwasher and cause this
    condition. Try using several pitchers of water and pumping out the water by rotating the
    control knob till it pumps out to dilute the soap. Hope this helps.

    Dishes are not getting clean particularly in the upper rack. The soap dispenser opens properly but the soap was still there. The washer seems to fill properly and it sounds normal. The dishwasher goes...


    Make and model?Is the water hot enough? Is this a new problem? Is all of the detergent still in the dispenser or do you use detergent both in the washer and the dispenser? Please reply to this inquiry for more help. Do you have the manual?

    The microwave will not heat the food


    Yes - please buy a new one.
    Unfortunately microwaves have 2 positions - working or dead!.
    The cost to resurrect from the dead is all out of proportion with the cost of buying a new one which will have at least a 12mths guarantee

    First, wipe out any excess crumbs. Then fill a microwave-safe bowl with about 1-2 cups of water. Add some lemon juice, or put in half a piece of fresh cut lemon (squeezing some juice out first) into the bowl... Microwave until the water is boiling. Then let it sit for a few minutes to let the steam penetrate the interior. Carefully remove the bowl and interior tray. Wipe down the interior with a damp cloth. Wash the tray in the sink with dish soap, dry, and then return to microwave. For the outside, spray with a kitchen cleaner and wipe with paper towels. The main idea is that the steam from the water will loosen food particles, and the lemon will add a fresh smell.

    Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


    This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
