How do I use it?

We just bought this dishwasher off a lady down the street. She's had it for a little bit and didn't have the instructions to give us. I've never had a countertop dishwasher before and I know this sounds terrible, but where do you put the soap? There doesn't seem to be a dispenser for it...

You need to use dishwasher powder and approx 1 or2 teaspoonsful is enough. Normally there is a dispenser inside of the dropdown door but it wont hurt to literally just chuck it in the bottom of the machine! Choose a shortish program to start with and use the rinse program first. I rinse which on mine is 12 mins then I use economy wash which is 24 mins. Wait until you are using the wash programmer(not the rinse program)before you put the oap in. You can instead use an all in one tablet and again-just "chuck it in".

Water not circulating in dishawasher

I have this same dishwasher, bought it May 31, 2011 and the water won't spray. I called Samsung, and they oh so nicely said they would send a tech to take a look at it. I asked for free....lady says yes. Tech gets here and say it's a $69.00 fee just to run the onboard diagnosis.

How do you reset the security alarm on a Harley Davidson dyna street bob

Maybe the dealer will tell you. I don't have any resources for that. My old 2000 manual doesn't even address that.

Just call the service dept and ask for help. They should be willing to give you that little bit of info over the phone.

But have pen and paper handy. There might be several steps to it.

Hello Pam,

Sad to hear they did not sent you the manual.. Anyway, I did search the internet for it and couldn't find any manual for your watch. Is there something wrong with your watch? It is a very beautiful watch! The controls should be basic. Just pull the lever all the way up to adjust the time.

My dishwasher does not take water after switching on. I know that it has an Aquastopper. But I dont know where is it to activate it. I have Siemens Lady 45 Dishwasher.

Probably the problem is to solve as easy as mine.

Did you ever consider that the error may be in front of the dishwasher? I didn't until I disassambled the washer and checked how it works. (As you also eventually tried to check the internet for a usermanual - you won't find maybe also none.)

This Lady's are build that easy, as every man would whish that all ladys work. ;)

You 've the round knob at the front of the dishwasher, this is some kind of "switching-clock".
This dishwasher (I don't know if model 45 is exactly the same, but it looks quite similar to mine) has no different washing programs, just ONE.

I always tried to "use" program "3", like the symbols suggested to me, that this would be for what I want to wash.
If you do so, the dishwasher starts in the middle of the washing-cycle and doesn't fill itself with water. It just wants to wash without water, as the water filling process starts in with the first step you can turn it to.

And what is also a bit "strange" for normal people, but maybe not for the real technical people. The "time-switching-device" rotates counter-clockwise. I thought it would do it clockwise, but never took the time to watch what it's doing. Mathematicaly speaking the clockwise direction is in technicians eyes the "wrong" direction, as it is mostly defined as the negative direction.

So, maybe you're the same "blind" than me. Maybe I'm just a bit stupid. ;)

Just ONE program, and counter-clockwise rotation of the "time-switching-device". Starting with the "1 program" fills the dishwasher with water, 2,3, and the following stuff don't do so (except the flushing symbol, but it doesn't wash, it just flushes the dishes.)

Long story short - mine works now like expected - without anything beeing broken.

Pick up an Appliance Repair Kit in the color you have selected (I'm assuming white, so get Appliance White) and follow the instructions. It'll have some epoxy and a finishing paint to help mask the mar.

Soap dispensor will not click shut

Your dishwasher, although a Kenmore, was made by GE. Dispensers have been a big issue for them in the past; they actually redesigned them quite a bit 3 to 4 years ago. Is it the kind that slides across to lock in place, or does it fold over like a clamshell? Often there is a little spring that holds the lip in place, and it can easily wear out, allowing dispenser to pop open easily. I would check for technical information, or possibly go to the website to see if they can give more information.

How do i get electrolux to give me a new dishwasher given that the old one is a dud and can burn my house down? I don't just want a 'fix' like last time

Unless a tech can condem your unit, and it is less than a year, you will not have much to stand on. Can you discribe a little bit more on what problem the D\W is giving you.
