I am trying to clean the filter in the dishwasher, but need to undo the screws to do this - the screws wont undo with any of my screwdrivers (funny star shaped tips) can anyone suggest how I might undo these screws?

Is it a recessed star, or a raised star? If it is recessed, the tool is called torx. Most of your better tool suppliers will have them. The raised star.... I cant help you.

Dishwasher not cleaning - want to clean drain


We have a Kenmore 665.17702k600 Portable dishwasher with a similar problem. What we did was pop off the drain cover (turns out the one screw wasn't doing anything and just pushed down into the unit when screwdriver was applied). We popped it off by shimmying a screwdriver under the panel, and applying torque on the long end. It just popped right off. Then there was this nasty stale water, and not much obvious debri. We used a wet vac to slurp all that up. So that's the solution we took -- haven't tried it yet, so not sure if it will actually fix the problem...

Dishwasher not completely emptying of water


YOU PROBABLY HAVE 'BITS' ACCUMALATED IN THE HOSE, WHERE IT JOINS TO THE UNDERSIDE OF YOUR SINK OUTLET.
SWITCH OFF DISHWASHER, UNDO THE BASE WHERE THE FILTERS ARE AND USE A CUP TO DRAIN OUT THE WATER IN TO A BOWL. THEN CLEAN ALL THE FILTER BITS IN HOT WATER. GO TO THE HOSE JOINING THE SINK TRAP AND UNDO THIS (SCREWDRIVER NEEDED TO UNDO THE BRASS CLIP). UNSCREW THE WHITE PLASTIC END JOINING THE 'U' BEND. LOOK IN THE END OF THE PLASTIC NOZZLE AND YOU SHOULD SEE FOOD DEBRIS IN THE HOSE. CLEAN ALL OF THIS OUT. AND REFIT TO UNDER SIDE OF SINK TRAP, DONT FORGET TO MAKE SURE THE BLACK 'O' RING IS IN PROPERLY. MAKE SURE ALL THE FILTERS ARE IN PLACE INSIDE THE DISHWASHER AND PUT IT ON EMPTY, HOTTEST WASH CYCLE YOU HAVE. PREFERABLY WITH A DISHWASHER CLEANER IN IT. (NORMALLY DEBRIS IS : RICE, PASTA, AND EGG SHELLS, THESE ALL BLOCK THE TUBES AND BUILD UP OVERTIME. FOR SOME REASON THEY DO NOT BREAK DOWN AND PASS THROUGH. BEST THING TO DO IS TO MAKE SURE THE PLATES ETC ARE SCRAPED OFF PROPERLY BEFORE GOING IN THE DISHWASHER. I HAVE DONE THIS MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS, MAINLY DUE TO THE KIDS BEING LAZY, AND JUST PUTTING THE WHOLE PLATE INCLUDING LEFTOVERS STRAIGHT IN. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Oil Filter


Hi, their are a couple of options you have you can buy a oil filter remover tool that goes all the way round the oil filter to undo it.

They get pretty tight over time as the heat from the engine welds them on so can be difficult to loosen.

If you are using the removing tool then dont worry about breaking the filter as it will come off broken or not.

The other option you have is stab a thick screwdriver threw the filter so it comes out the other side you will get some oil coming out of the hole so put bucket under neath, now with the screw driver stabbed through try undoing it slightly.
With the screwdriver stabbed through it this should give you more leverage and loosen slightly once loosened remove screwdriver then undo by hand.

It dont matter if you damage the filter just make sure you have something under neath as it has about half a liter of oil in it.

They do get stuck tight but it will undo dont worry about breaking it as you will be replacing with a new one.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

LG LDF8812 Diswasher - Self Cleaning Filter not cleaning itself


you should not have to use any type of screwdriver to remove filter. The rest of it , leave alone. Take both rotors out and run unit. Both rotors top and bottom should push water through at a good rate. If not, a blockage in water /motor line. I suspect the rotors simply need to be properly cleaned, If not rotating properly it will cause undesolved residue.

Neff dishwasher removal


this may work - if it is an integrated dishwasher you should have a star shaped screw attaching the door to the machine on either side (about half way down). try pulling the machine out - and then looking for the holes on either side at the front. insert a star screw driver (may not work with other screwdrivers) and release the bolts (screws) then slide the door upwards.

Upper rack not getting clean


The problem likely is the cutter/chopper filter.
1. Remove bottom basket. Remove top basket (Pop off 'keepers' at the ends of the slidding shelf supports).
2. Remove bottom washing arm. Unscrew (Gently but firmily) centre post. Lift arm assembly out.
3. Remove overhead conduit. One screw at back and one at top (Philips #2 screwdriver bit). Rotate whole assembly 45 deg to the right (Clockwise) and lift off of centre post It can then be taken apart to clean.
4. Remove centre post (Pull straight up) Remove 4 screws (Star T-20 screwdriver bit). Lift whole plastic assembly out. Pop off the screen (Flat blade screwdriver around the edge) and clean.
5. Remove cap over cutter/chopper. There is a single screw at left front (Under the just removed centre assembly). Remove (Star T-15 screwdriver bit) screw and cap (Needs a bit of wiggling to get it free). Remove cutter and filter ( a stainless steel disc with many holes in it). Tt is on a spring loaded pin. Pull the cutter blade foreward and lift the filter straight up. Clean thoroughly. I then ran a 'quick rinse' cycle with everything out, to clean the inside.
6. Reassemble - Good luck! This worked for me.

I have a whirpool Quiet Partner III, and the top layer of glasses is not getting clean. I had a technichian out some time ago, and the problrem was caused by food debris trppaed in the filter in the wash...


CHECK THE SPRAY ARM HOLES,ARE THEY CLOGGED ??IF THERE NOT YOU MAY NEED THE PUMP REPLACED (NO PRESSURE).........BY THE WAY THE POWER DRIVE UNIT IS NOW REFERED TO AS A > MOTOR/PUMP WHICH IS NOT INCLUDING THE PUMP.IT'S THERE WAY OF ADDING CONFUSION WHEN WE ORDER PARTS. 1ST LOOK FOR CLOGGED SPRAY ARMS. LEAVE A RATING !!
