Question about Avanti DW18 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

HI There, thanks for being willing to take my question. We have a 1 year-old White Avanti Dishwasher Model Model DW18/DW19PSS/DW181SS PROBLEM: detergent dispenser often does not fully open, leaving soap in the dispenser even thru the rinse cycle... it seems to get hung up on the upper rack. i can even hear the dispenser door pop open when i open the dishwasher after the cycle is complete, making me wonder if there is enough clearance for the dispenser door to flip completely open. THINGS I'VE TRIED: 1.pushing the rack and rails all the way back so as not to interfere with the flipping up action of the dispenser door 2. rinsing, brushing out the spring latch on the dispenser, in case it was clogged with soap 3. using less soap 4. not putting anything on the top rack that would get in the dispenser door's way when it's time to open. 5.. going to avanti website for help on the subject and studying the manual. I'd appreciate any other suggestions you might have short of calling the repair people now that it's probably just a month out of warranty! thank you thank you! Rebecca

Sorry to read about your problem.
Their is a 60% chance that your cold water inlet valve is stuck. 30% that you water leval sensor is defective.
I suggest you contact a local service company to repair your problem, this should be 1 hour or less service call.

SOURCE: Looking at buying an 18

The timer is going bad, and a replacement will cost more than the dishwasher. Go look at a new one. They only run a few hundred bucks and will last for at least 10 years without any problems. I bought a basic model for a house I was selling a few years ago for $185.

Avanti not filling


Check that you are getting water to the water inlet valve. Sometimes they fail and will not let water into washer. I have replaced a number of them and they cost about 30-50 dollars. You can goole appliance parts and find a company that you can order it from. hope this helps

The dishwasher continues to drain and the timer does not move


Sounds like the timer needs to be replaced, especially if the tub is empty of water, and the timer will not advance no matter how long you leave it there.
