I TRYING TO FIX MY DISHWASHER WITHOUT GETTING A TECH OUT HERE TO DIANGOSE IT FOR $75 JUST TO WALK IN THE DOOR AND THEN WHATEVER THE CHARGE IS PER HOUR.. SO MY ISSUE IS THAT WE BELIEVE WE HAVE HEAT AFTER THE CYCLE IS DONE BUT THE DISHES ARENT DRYING.. IS THIS A BLOWER ISSUE. WHEN I LOOK AT THE BLOWER THERE IS SOME BLACK STUFF AROUND THE VENT PART AND IS KIND OF DRIPPING DOWN THE INNER DOOR. WELL MAYBE NOT DRIPPING BUT ACCUMILATING. CAN I GET SOME IDEAS PLEASE ON WHAT TO REPLACE?

Serial Number?


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

1st place to look is the wire harness inside the door, the damping sheet is corrosive and eats the wires...


We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

And like every good cheesedork knows, when we diagnose an appliance, all we're doing is "just lookin' at it."

Sorry about that J, really. 

John and Chat were gracious enough to overlook the fact that you inadvertently devalued the service of the people who are trying to help you.

I get so much of that though, I couldn't resist pointing it out.

Please take your caps lock off when you post, typing in all capital letters is the internet equivalent of yelling.
