I would put the dishwasher on its back so you can see underneath to check the fill and drain hose to make sure there not damaged in any way to cause it to leak. if it all looks good under there return it upright and remove the front lower kick panel grab a flashlight and start the dishwasher. you shoud be able to see a leak and where it is comming from. its possible it could be from the hose the inlet valve the pump and motor assembly or the plastic tub itself. good luck

Does a Frigidaire Dishwasher - Mdl 363.1410691 s/n UD 320243 R have a filter? If it does where is it?

Reportedly about 18 years old. Kenmore appliances may be made by Frigidaire currently and this product number was originally attached to Kenmore appliances. Whether or not you can find a manual to an 18 year old dishwasher is anyone's guess. However, here is a video regarding cleaning a Kenmore dishwasher filter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MiriGVf90fI

And here is a link which includes a video for cleaning Frigidare dishwasher filters: https://www.hunker.com/13407641/how-to-clean-a-frigidaire-dishwasher-filter

Purportedly, one can get manuals for the Frigidare products at the Frigidare site. But for an 18 year old dishwasher made by Kenmore? That is not to say you cannot get parts for one: https://www.repairclinic.com/ProductDetail/929216 or repair tips: https://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/kenmore-dishwasher-36314071792-repair

Hopefully, one of these sites may be of assistance.

SPT SD-9239W portable dishwasher makes a buzzing sound during pre-fill drain and draining on all parts of cycles. Washes fine, rinse is good, drain is noisy. Dishwasher is about 4 years old.

This is normal. Countertop dishwashers have two motors inside. The drain motor is a inductive type motor. They are noisy. They all work this way during draining.

Won't Fill and will attempt to run wash cycle when turned off and door is closed

Hello ddux97 - I understand your dishwasher has power but will not fill with water. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

• Make sure water supply is turned on. (First check for shut off valve under the kitchen sink).

• Check the house circuit breaker or fuse box, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.

• Check inlet hose and make sure it's not twisted.

• Does float overfill protector (mushroom shaped object in tub) move freely? This is located in the bottom left front corner of the dishwasher.

• If this is a new install, then make sure the unit is not pressed up against the cabinet and the fill tube is not squeezed closed.

• Make sure the electrical wires going to the water inlet valve have not come off. It is best to turn off power to the dishwasher before reconnect wires, it doesn't matter which terminal is off both need to be connected.

• Make sure the drain hose is installed correctly. If the drain hose is routed under the floor as the dishwasher fills water can be drawn from the tub and appear to have never filled.

• Some models of Frigidaire dishwashers use a water pressure switch that will shut off the water valve if the tub over fills. These models do not have floats.

I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

Hello ddux97 - Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

· Do you have hard water? Hard water is the primary reason to cause soap residue. Water hardness can be determined by the local water supply company, water treatment company or via a water hardness test kit, which can be found at local part distributors or hardware stores. Some kind of water softening is recommended, in areas where the water hardness is 12 grains or higher. For very hard water a home water softening system would be recommended.

· Will the upper spray arm rotate freely? If it does not, then there isn't enough water being pumped to the spray arm or the full flow of water is not making it to the upper spray arm. Remove or replace the spray arm assemblies since it is possibly damaged.

· Confirm that the drain hose is strapped up properly under the sink to prevent the water from siphoning out during the cycle.

· Dishwashers require the water inside the unit tank to be 120F to perform properly. Best way to ensure this happens is to run the sink faucet until the water comes out hot before the dishwasher is turned on. This will ensure that hot, 120F water goes directly into the dishwasher when it starts to fill. When checking dishwashing detergent boxes and with detergent manufacturers, the compounds in the detergent need water temperatures to be between 125F - 140F to dissolve in the dishwasher. The water pressure should be 20-120 psi (pounds per square inch). If it is too low, I recommend reaching out to a plumber to further assist you.

· Rinse aid dispenser should be checked and filled about once a month depending on the number of washes you do in a month since this will cause cloudy dishes and soap residue.

If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, then at this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

D1876 Asko dishwasher doesn't fill. It runs fine if I manually fill the unit with a couple of pitchers of water. Likely culprits seem to be a faulty water level sensor or water fill valve. Any...

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description and provided the dishwasher is indeed 1) an Asko D1876 and 2) not filling with water...It sounds like a faulty fill valve/water valve unfortunately.

First though, you can perform a diagnostic/fault trace program by following the steps below. You should hear the valve starting once the unit has started filling with water.


You'll need to be familiar with the control layout for the test to begin. This is how the buttons/display is identified in the diagnostic...

macmarkus_287.jpg


Now you can enter the fault trace by way of the following sequence....

macmarkus_288.jpg


Obviously based on the instructions if you push S3 the valve should open and allow water into the tub, this image below indicates the normal water level to look for when filling in the normal cycle NOT FAULT TRACING...Fault trace will fill until you stop it.

macmarkus_289.jpg


This unfortunately is common with Asko built dishwasher`s, but it can be fairly easily repaired with a little direction/know-how.

**First turn off the water and the power to the dishwasher...safety first**


You should only need to remove the toe panel/kick plate at the bottom and of course turn your water and power off, undo the water line at the valve,

i.e.

macmarkus_290.jpg



...remove the two torx screws ( large arrow ) and then the delivery hose at the back of the valve ( small arrow ) and install the new one.

The new valve is part # 8801351 and available at on-line parts depot "repairclinic.com" for about $170USD last time I looked.

Let me know what you find and I'll try and help you move forward from there...you may opt to call in a pro but that's up to you.

I'll watch for your reply.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My dishwasher seems to start ok then the first light starts flashing and it do'es nothing just stays there any ideads what my problem is

Can you tell if it's filling with water. The first thing it does is fill with water (usually on a timed cycle) before the pump starts. If there's no water in the tub, it obviously won't wash dishes, since a dishwasher is nothing more than an enclosed pressure washer. If it does not fill with water, you may have a bad fill valve or the timer that turns the fill valve on may be defective. You DO have the water turned on, RIGHT?

Dishwasher does not work

TO SLIDE THE UNIT OUT YOU MUST UNINSTALL THE MACHINE. START BY UNSCREWING THE TOP. ANY SCREW THAT HOLD THE MACHINE IN ON TOP AND SIDES IF APPLIES. CHECK THE DRAIN AND FILL HOSE TO SEE HOW MUCH LINE YOU HAVE TO PULL OUT UNIT. IF DRAIN HOSE IS SHORT DISCONNECT FROM UNDER THE SINK. IF FILL HOSE IS SHORT TURN OFF WATER GOING INTO MACHINE AND DISCONNECT HOSE. IF ELECTRICAL IS SHORT THEN DISCONNECT FROM TERMINAL BLOCK BUT MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF. THAT SHOULD DO IT.
