Not easy to test without special equipment. if capacitor is faulty, then motor will not move but will get quite hot as current is passing thro the run winding but motor not being cooled.

it is not an expensive part - about £8 in the uk. note the value of the capacitor and you should be able to source from a friendly electrical dealer. that will be a lot cheaper than buying it as a manufacturer's spare part

Water in the bottom dw smells.It's not from wet dishes dripping.It just appears every few days.Would my disposal have something to do with it?I don't know how to take it apart to find out.


try washing without dishes with a cup of vinegar or get a product at the store call dish washer cleaner that you use it in and empty dish washer to clean and remove smell.
also could be clogged strainer in the bottom of DW then need to be cleaned out!

I smell my motor. Is it worth replacing, or buy new?


5 years seems short for a major appliance designed to give 10 years or more of service. I'd say it's worth repairing yourself.

Just make sure it is the motor, then dig a little deeper to find out why it failed. It can be from being bound up because of a jam in the pump, a leak causing the bearings to freeze, or in the case of inductive motors a failed starting/run capacitor.

I've seen failure of the waste water gate/valve solenoid due to a timer issue. You'll have to do your detective work and once you know exactly the part that is eminating the smell, you will have a path to backtrack from.

Remember, water and electricity don't mix and shut both off before working inside the dish washer!

My dishwasher doesn't start. When I press start button the light turns down and every appliances turn off. kindly advice if it is related to electrical system or not


If the main circuit TRIPS off the moment the dish washer is started , then it is possible that there is a heavy short within the washer.
To find out the reason you will need to discconnect the power to the washer, the disconnect the power to the controller unit, the motor and the inlet vavle. Using a multimeter you can checck for short in the circuit. If so isolate the circuit.
Now reconnect and see if the power trips, is so isolate one by one the circuit till you come to the failed component. It can be the power controller, valve, motor, capacitor or surge protector.

Hello I have a hotpoint aquarious dishwasher and its making a burning smell and tripping the fuse box do you know what this could be?


Almost certainly the main wash motor or the capacitor is faulty.If not look for the line filter module. If that is blown it will also do that.Rewire without it.(your mail power cord is connected to it as it enters the machine on the inside..

Dishwasher really holds smells from soiled foods. Can I put bleach in the dispenser periodically?


First check your main draining system. the entire gas escapes through your dish washer.

Clean the wash chamber with water. Do not try bleach as it may spoil the other parts. If still prefer to use, dilute and use.

For some time use a bucket of 10 to 15 liter and drain the dish washer out let. If the smell not noticed, it is eminating from the main drain system.

Remove the lower spray arm, the filter and the volute cover. Check for a foreign objects inside.

If there is nothing wrong then the pump & motor has to be replaced.

    or

Kenmore Dishwasher does not wash


Stew, Im not really sure what model you have 665, 587, 363 or what. If it's a 665, it sounds like the wash motor is not getting power. Remove the toe panel and look at the start capacitor. See if one of the wires came off during the reinstallation. Should be on the left side of the wash motor. If one of the wires is off, wash motor won't run. If that's ok, check the main harness to the motor. Catriver

Dishwasher seems to be doing everything except washing


what your friend did would not affect the appliance. by the sound of it the main circulating pump or pump capacitor is faulty. capacitor is a cheap part but the pump will be expensive. only way to find out is to dive in and look. is pump motor is faulty then this will be faily obvious - burnt winding. if no apparant motor damage try substituting the motor capacitor - this is a cheap part
