I have a Neff built-in dishwasher and sometimes there is a heavy leakage of water from the front right-hand side. The unit is 3-years old and there is a build up of scale around the rubber seals. The long...


Hello,
Check the rubber seal in the bottom of the door has not perished or split,also check the bottom spray arm has not split on the ends as this will direct the spray directly onto the door,causing it to leak.

Hope this helps

Where is the drain pump located on zanussi dishwasher model DE 6744 S ?


The Drain pump can be got to by removing the circular filter at the bottom of your machine and all the screws that hold the plastics in including the round retaining plastic clip, only then will you see your drain pump prepellors, but if you want to remove the Drain Pump then this can be done from the rear of the machine you might have to remove the macine outside for this as you need to turn it on its side, from the back of the machine remove the two screws holding the big electronic motor this is plugged into electric sockets remove them also there is a rubber bung that holds this in place once unscrewed the motor needs a bit of a jig and it should slot out through the back of the machine. If you are thing of changing this it costs about £120 I got rid of the machine myself.

Kenmore dishwasher not cleaning properly


Look in the inside for any screen that would be easily removed, some dishwashers have a self cleaning filter so you may not find it. I have a lot of other tips for you if your dishwasher is not cleaning so check it out.

Kenmore DW model 15999 Lower Spray Tower Came off


Yes, I was able to get it fixed.
The spray tower actually fits in the rack (I had thought it fit in the top of the lower spray arm - wrong!)

If you were to look at the spray tower itself, it has 2 little clip like plastic protrusions that with a little twist will clip onto the lower rack!

Push the lower rack in and you can see where the center would be, (right over the middle of the lower spray arm ).

Now pull out the rack and take the spray tower and slip it under the rack up thru the bottom in the position you noted was the center (from above).

Now with the spray tower in place, slide the rack back inside the dishwsher and you will see that the tower will be sitting directly over the top of the exact middle of the lower spray arm.

Voila!

An extra part inside the dishwasher


I have a Bosch dishwasher with the same "mystery" part. According to my manual,this part is an Extra Tall Item Sprinkler (select models). Apparently, if you are loading in extra tall items, you take out the top rack and insert this part into the top rack spray outlet (located a the back of the dishwasher). Turn it clockwise to lock it into position. Put your extra tall items in the bottom rack. Hope this helps!

How to knock out garbage disposal plug


Turn off the power source to the garbage disposal. Take the drain hose from the dishwasher off the connector going to the disposal (if connected). Insert a flat blade screwdriver in the drain hose fitting and tap a few times with a hammer. The plastic plug will pop off inside the garbage disposal. Reach inside from the top of the disposal to retrieve the plastic plug. Sometimes you have to use a little force to tap the plug out. Hope this helps you.

Spray tower fell off


The Spray tower fits in the bottom rack, Its actually pretty obvious as there is no way it can sit int he position it has to without being in the rack itself otherwise the rack and tower would block each other all the time. 
 Examine the base of your spray tower it should have two "clips" or plastic protusions that will, with a circular twist, snap onto the bars of the middle of the rack itself. Then when in place and your rack is slid inside the dishwasher the tower should sit directly over top of the exact middle of your bottom spray arm. 
et Voila.

Mouse inside dishwasher


I have an MDBH945AWW.
I FIXED IT! They are getting in thru the water inlet/vent in the lower bottom left of the dishwasher. Here's how we fixed it:
1. Turn off water to machine if possible. Open the door, remove screws on side and top that hold dishwasher in place. Pull the dishwasher out from under the counter. Remove racks from inside.
2. Remove the sound insulation blanket. Mine was a mouse nest so I threw the thing out. Not going to replace it as the noise increase is minimal.
3. On the left side of the tub outside there is a tube that comes from under and is hooked to a small plastic box with an open top. THIS is the point of entry!
4. Poke a long screwdriver or something down into the box and pop the plastic tension prongs free. Reach into the dishwasher and remove the circular plastic grill.
5. Twist the plastic box to the right or left until the tabs line up and it will pop out of the side of the tub. Remove the tube from the box. The box should now be free.
6. Cut a square of 1/4 hardware mesh cloth (flexible metal grid) and cut a hole to fit over the nipple for the tube. Put mesh over the top of the box, secure in place with really heavy duty tape. Something strong like Gorilla Tape or even metal tape for ducts.... conventional duct tape will not hold after a year or so. I taped all around the edges and sealed it down only leaving the top with the mesh exposed.
7. Put the tube back on and then reinstall the box and then the grill.
8. Take this time to SUPER CLEAN the area under and around the dishwasher. Even the outside of the washer. Mice return to the smell of their poop.
9. Put the washer back in and don't forget the screws as well as turning the water back on.

$5 fix or a $500 new machine... you choose!

Oh yeah, and I'm a girl too...
:D
