    Hi Daniel, thankyou for the suggestion. However I noticed that the model number on my dishwasher does not match the number I see next to my original problem. The model number I find on mine is model LDF6810ST/01. Does this make a difference in our solution or should I try it anyway?

    Ok thanks. Ill try that.

Hi

The issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use your voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If your switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The suction cups on my oil rubbed bronze soap dish are no longer tight enough to sick to the wall of my shower. it's been fine for over two years until now. can you buy new suction pieces or do i have...


Sometimes this happens when the suction cups are somewhat dirty.
Wet the suction cups, leave for some time, and wipe with a clean cloth until the suction side is shiny. If it is not shiny at places that suggest those places are not cleaned thoroughly. Wet again and wipe again until you get a shiny surface.
Check the wall where it was attached. If you see any patches wet the area and wipe with a clean cloth.
You can apply just a tad bit of oil (I use coconut oil) to the suction cups.

Try this - and let us know the results.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Dont clean my dishes


Try cleaning out your drain because it could be clogging up and this can cause it not to clean the dishes.

The dishes don't get clean


Dishes not cleaned properly....
 
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes and leaves spots on everything!!


You need 2 things. Slightly hotter water and a rinse agent. If you don't heat dry your dishes, crack the door 3 or 4 inches after it's done, to let the steam out.

Whirlpool dishwasher


first how old is unit ??? new to you??? a few things to check on your part, for better results run the hot water in your sink b4 you start your d/w. are you using a rinse agent (Rinse Aid) newer machines actually count on this for better drying. is everything soaking wet as if never attempted to dry or are certain items not drying. for example Tupperware, plastics( sippey cups), and some silverware may not ever come dry. newer d/w heat the dish to a certain temp and then rely on the residual heat of the dish to evaporate its own water, and obviously plastics can never be heated to that temp (and certain silverware metal) si the never completely dry. in not saying you dont have a heater issue, but check into these few things first. The heater can be check with a simple continuity test.The heater leads are directly under and behind unit.Sometimes just a visual inspection of heate will deem it bad
