    Im not sure if this is the proper forum to ask. Recently moved into a home and bought a bosch dishwasher as the one that came with the house was broken. I noticed no matter which setting i used, the dishes come out a little sticky. I use jet dry rinse aid and finish powerball tablets. I also...

    About at our wit's end on this one... As the subject says, periodically, our dishes come out of the dishwasher smelling horrible. Bit like a wet dog. What's odd is sometimes it works fine, other times they come out fine, but after putting them away and waiting a day or two, they start to smell...

    My ge profile dishwasher is not draining. I cleaned the filters out checked all the drain hoses for blockage. I pulled the dishwasher out and ran a test cycle on it from paperwork I found on the back of unit. That did nothing in solving my issue. When the drain pump is suppose to go on it...

    I own Frigidaire dishwasher (model # FFCD2418SS). Till last week, it was working perfectly, but from last few days, it is draining the residual water. Before calling a technician (which actually costs fortune here), I wanted to fix it myself. Tried googling, and follow these guides: Fix...

    Hey all, First post here, but since I'll be doing a lot of work on my house in the near future I'll probably be back. I've searched everywhere for any similar happenings but just see the actual dishwasher circuit tripping, which this is not. I just installed a new GE dishwasher in place of an...

    Hi all, I found a slow drip coming from my dishwasher and see that it's from the water inlet connection. The connection is twisting incorrectly on the plastic inlet male threads (see pic). Every time I try to unscrew/rescrew the fitting...it does the same thing and won't screw on correctly...

    Hello all - My dishwasher's upper sprayer base is broken. One of the three nubs the holds it in place to the upper dish rack has chipped off, so every time i run the dishwasher the upper sprayer falls off. I have tried to find a replacement but it has been discontinued and is not available on...

    Our dishwasher was filling up and while cleaning the filters, my partner took out the Wash-Cycle Pump Protector and cannot get it back on. After looking at the instructions, in bold letters it says do not remove. Does this mean it is broken beyond repair?

    Hi folks, My first post, so thanks for having a look. My old Bosch DW died after 20+ years. Bought a new Miele 4228 scu. Gotta love those Germans. It is a bit of an odd install since the DW is not next to a sink drain. The power, water feed and drain all come up from the floor. I had a high...

    I am getting a new dishwasher and wondered if it's best to replace the existing copper water supply line with the installation, or should I not bother and keep the old line? The old line doesn't leak but is about 17 years old. Either way, I definitely want to stick with a copper line as...

    I am installing a Bosch DW. This comes with a junction box and a plug which goes into the back of the unit. The old (not very old - my guess is less than a year) unit I am replacing had a dedicated 15A duplex outlet. My understanding is the the DW has to have a dedicated circuit. Does...

    I have removed the dishwasher that came with our house, but don't plan to replace it. Now the drain hose is just sticking out of the floor. Do I cap it? Push it down into the crawl space? Something else?

    Hi, My Samsung dishwasher recently bit the dust. Before I order a new one, I'd like to know for certain that the one I select is going to fit in the cut out. The salesperson at the store was surprisingly unhelpful in this. Attached is a side by side of the specs for both my old dishwasher...

    Have you guys ever found something that just seems like such a simple idea, but for some reason you have fell in love with it? Call me crazy, but recently I was shopping on amazon for a new dish drying mat (our apartment doesn't have a dishwasher so literally every single dish we wash gets...

    All, would appreciate any help I can get with my GE Profile Model PDT 825 SGJ0B. Usually run a load per day in the washer and have been doing so for over a year ++ with no real issues. Try to start a load this morning and when I close the door, the amber light on the front goes solid, usually...

    For a while now my Bosch SHE44C model dishwasher has emitted a very unpleasant odor after a day or so of unloading. Doing some research online it appears there are a two common techniques used in order to prevent dirty water backups and the associated unpleasant odors; using a “high loop” for...
