SOURCE: small tear on plastic lining covering the inside of the door

That clear cover (sometimes called the inner door screen) is very important.

It protects the metal mesh / screen from debris and corrosion. The metal screen allows you to see "what's cooking" (*grin*) but prevents microwaves from leaking out of the door due to the precise size of the openings in the mesh.

If the mesh rusts or gets grease or food on it, it can arc, and this can damage the screen, then microwaves can leak, causing a burn or fire hazard. (No "radiation" threat, though)

If no arcing or other damage has occurred yet, you can clean the area squeaky with alcohol, then dry it completely and use the smallest possible amount of clear Scotch tape or packing tape to cover the tear and make sure it's flat.

If this fix doesn't work, or it's too big an area, you will have to replace the sheet, which can be ordered.

You'd have to heat it up with a hair dryer, peel it off slowly, then clean the area with something like acetone, then peel and stick the new one.

If you need to or prefer to order it, I would need your brand and model number to help you further.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: The dishwasher will not drain

Can you here it drain pump when it time to drain. If you do not Then your pump is bad or the control board is not sending a signal to the pump. To see if you get a signal to the pump you can use a electrical tester to see if you get current.

Check for a leaking O-ring/Washer/Seal and replace. Sometimes the internal parts of the sprayer head will wear out. Replacement sprayer heads can be obtained from your local hardware store.
I'll look forward to hearing back from you. :-)

Yes it is stuck in the discharge pump and your arm removal is the wrong direction.
Here is a parts and price catalog.
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=265621&diagram_id=28230862#d28230862
Look at the "pump and motor parts" diagram. Open it in its own page for best viewing.
The discharge pump is on top of the motor and needs to be disassembled from the bottom. Looks like a big job unless you want to follow this diagram to instruct you how to remove it. You may have a damaged impeller when you get it open, either way you will still need a gasket part when you put it back together or it might leak. Hope you forgive her first then good luck with your effort.

SOURCE: We live in a house

if this is the only place in the home where water pressure is a problem then the lines may very well be the issue. if you have low pressure throughout the home then there may be a problem with the main water supply in the home. if the lines are galvanized pipe then they may be restricted due to rust or other deposits forming on the inside of the pipe. unless you are good at plumbing then i would suggest having a professional come out and assess the condition of the lines.

How to get rid of Dac8008ee light stench?


If you checked outside and it's not draining properly, try sticking wire with a pipe cleaner attached through pipe. Make sure wire is flexible enough to go through pipe and make sure pipe cleaner is secured. Or just try to blow compresed air through line.

My dishwasher didn't drain the water out on the end of the clicle? What could be the problem?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would start where your drain line connects to the house drain,This is where most blocked drains happen. Disconnect the drain line and put it in a bucket and try to drain the dishwasher. Chances are its blocked somewhere you just have to find it.

Purchased Model # EWDW6505GS from Lowes in Tigard, Oregon today. It was the floor model and did not come with a manual for use and care (I got online) or with a drain hose. Where do I find a drain...


the drain hose for your dishwasher needs to fit the plumbing in your home. Measure the size of the connection at the drain (under the sink) and possible use the old hose as a model for what you will need. Lowes sells a hook up kit but be careful to measure the size of the outlet on bottom of the dishwasher and size and distance to the drain connection. Sometimes addaptors are used to size down the outlet side of the hose. Also if you have the manual it may show the size of the outlet on the dishwasher.

Keurig Coffeemaker says to descale. How do I do that?


Hi, unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.


Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.


Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.


Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.


Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.


Unplug the machine and dump the water into the sink.


Fill up the reservoir with fresh, clean water and plug it in. Place the ceramic cup back on the drip tray and run multiple brews in order to rinse the machine of any remaining vinegar residue.

My dishwasher is leaving water in the bottom after finished. The dishes are not cleaning. Are the two related?


Yes more than likely you have a restriction in your pump/drain. you will need to remove the drain cover in the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out
  • Empty the dishwasher and remove the dish racks so that you can easily locate the drain inside your dishwasher. The drain is under a drain grate, usually at the back of the dishwasher.

  • Remove the drain grate by either popping the grate out, or by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. Different types of dishwashers will have different options.

  • Use the soapy water and the toothbrush or scrub brush to clean inside the drain area and the grate.

  • Rinse the drain area with clean water. Then replace the drain grate.

  • Pour ½ cup of salt, 1 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of vinegar into the drain (in that order). The mixture will bubble. This will clean the drain and the drain hose.

  • Wait until the vinegar/baking soda mixture has stopped bubbling. Then pour 1 cup of bleach into your detergent dispenser. Replace the dish racks and run the empty dishwasher on a regular cycle. This will clean the entire machine


  • If this does not solve the issue your drain hose may be plugged or crimped and lastly your pump may be failing.

    When my dishwasher drains both sides of sink fill with water...then they both eventually drain back into the dishwasher.


    Sounds like your sink drain trap or line is clogged. When the dishwasher drains, the sink drain can't keep up, the water backs up, then backs down the dishwasher drain line into the dishwasher. You may not notice the slow line when you run a little water into the sink, but with the amount of water coming from the dishwasher the problem is worse. You can try taking off the trap under the sink and making sure it's clear. If the problem is farther down the drain line, you can try snaking it yourself, or call a plumber. I don't recommend using Liquid Plumr or Drano because if those don't work, they leave the line full of caustic chemicals for the next person who works on it. That can be dangeerous.

    The drain to my Blanco supreme 533 U sink has become loose and is clogged up. How do I remove the drain section to clean & reseal? There is no obvious screw holding it on.... Thank you!


    The center drain is held in place from under the sink with a large nut threaded onto the drain. You'll need to remove this nut using a basin wrench. A pair of slip joint pliers may work if the nut is not corroded and turn easily. Of course you'll need to keep the drain from turning while you loosen the nut. Depending on how the drain lines are fitted you probably need to remove them also.

    I have a bosh dishwasher that has not drained of water and the tap light is red on the indicator board


    Hello there:
    Drain line/air gap A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Pump Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support. Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them. Drain valve and/or solenoid Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water. Other dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
    If the motor isn't turning or working, the unit won't drain. Some dishwashers are susceptible to getting stuck if you don't run them regularly. I you may need to manually spin the motor to free it up. If the motor is defective, you need to replace it. Timer Part of what the timer does is control the motor and drain valve. If the timer doesn't work properly, the water may not drain and you need to replace the timer. This problem is uncommon.

    Dishwasher does not drain. Drain valve is very hard to work and has burned out the solenoid. Can you tell me exactly how to get these parts out of the dishwasher. Do I have to replace the pump to replace...


    Hi


    Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter. Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


    First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks
