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.

Dryer is running, but rotating very slowly. it generates heat, but makes a very loud noise. it's a GE Adora Dryer


Instructions

1. Wait approximately 90 seconds for the light to turn off if the "Start/Reset" indicator light flashes. Press the "Start/Reset" button to restart the wash cycle.
2. Close the dishwasher door and move the latch to the locked position if you hear a beep once every 30 seconds when the dishwasher should be operating. The dishwasher will not operate if the door is open.
3. Turn on the hot water faucet and feel the water to check if it is hot. Wait for the water to warm up before running the dishwasher if the water is not hot. Check that you have proper water pressure and wait for the pressure to return to normal if it is low. Your dishes may not come out clean if the water is not the correct temperature or if you have low water pressure.
4. Move the dishes on the racks so that they do not block the detergent dispenser or washer arms on the bottom of the machine. The dishes will not come out clean if they block the detergent dispenser or the washer arms.
5. Load the proper amount of detergent in the dishwasher if you find spots or film form on your glasses. If you have hard water, use a rinsing product such as Jet-Dry in the dishwasher to clean the spots or film. If the problem persists, wash smaller loads of dishes.
6. Add only automatic dishwasher detergent to the dishwasher if you find excessive suds in the tub after running a cycle. Measure out the proper amount of detergent.
7. Press the "Heated Dry," "Hot Start," "Hot Wash" and "Added Heat" buttons, if you find that your dishes are not fully dry after a wash cycle completes.
8. Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on the dishwasher for approximately three seconds if the control pad does not respond to button presses. This is the child lock that prevents unwanted use of the dishwasher.

Light on.Timer on.No water is coming in.Machine not starting


May be pump problem. Air trapping inside the pump also makes this noise. Add water in the chamber direct manually. Close the door and start the cycle. If the running is Ok, it is air trapping problem. Next wash load it will be alright. Otherwise clean the pump.

Dishwasher in not rinsing leaves alot of stuff behind


did you try the four step aproach?
1. make sure hot water is going to the unit .or let the water faucet run for 2-3 min.
2. add and fill jet dry until it cant go anymore.trick:add then close compartment door,then raise and lower door 3times then you will be able to add more rinse agent because the air is pushed out.
3.add the correct dishwashing soap
4.start machine when it start to wash the steam should come out when you check and open the door .
if you do all of things and it does not help start to check the water coming into unit, make sure the water coming in is correct. last sthing if all else fail then check to see if the water is dripping from the topof the unit when it is washing. If it is not then you probably have a circulation pump that is going bad.

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

No water going in to dishwasher when rinsing


the pump shouldn't turn on when the rinse cycle is on - it uses only fresh water straight from the water line - after the wash cycle is over - wait 5 seconds, then open the doors and see if there is any rinse coming out of the rinse arms.
If only a little is coming out - check the rinse arm spray jets to see if there is debris caught in them -
if no water is coming out - it could be a faulty rinse solenoid

Dishwasher gets stuck after first rinse


all programs start with drain put a little water in by hand, start a program and see if water comes out of the drain hose. things to check are if drain hose is plumbed in under sink, check no blockage in this area. if drain hose not running, then listen carefully for a low humming noise. if there is, this indicates a foreign object stuck in drain impellor. if youhave a multimeter, check if there is power to the drain pump
