High temp under counter dishwasher for our home!

12 January 2015 - 03:16 PM

Hi all!

we are sick of this whole "home style" dishwasher thing...and our local parish has a high temp commercial dishwasher...dishes done in 60 sec!!!

WE gotta have it! 7 people, kids home all day...stopping the trash buildup of paper plates!

So any recommendations, suggestions for a brand? Any warnings? I think hard water can shut these suckers down, so perhaps a water conditioner can be used.


many thanks!


Whirlpool DU7600XS-0 Door opens too much!

18 October 2014 - 03:57 PM

Hi All! Amyjean here, looking to help out a friend who's dishwasher door, when opened...opens too wide! the silverware tray that rests in the door goes almost upside down, and to close the door- takes my big ol' hips to push closed. so the door is not aligned up properly to the tub, and the thinger that stops the door from gaping open- no workee either.

I am looking at the schematics of the door itself through whirlpool parts store, not sure if I need the manual...can't find it and looked per your excellent instructions!

any recommendations on how I can tackle this and fix it for my friend?


thanks a million!

Honeywell temp thinger on wall

15 January 2014 - 05:10 PM

Do these things fail ever? I ask because today, the bedrooms on our top floor are super warm. The temp reads 75! No one has touched the thermostat and when I try to make the heater kick on by turning the wheel, it doesn't click. However I can hear the boiler running. Come to think of it, it might be running constantly!oh my oil!!!!! Any thoughts? Thanks for helping!!!!

Kitchenaid KUDR25SHBL0 whisperquiet plus dishwasher...issues

09 June 2013 - 10:27 AM

Hi All! neehow again with another request for guidance. My dishwasher is now making noise, like its chewing on eggshells, AND won't drain. Even when I hit cancel several times, it sounds like it is draining- but the pond of scum still sits at the bottom of the machine. No go.

So- The disposal is not new, it has been working fine- the electronics seem to be funtioning ok. I checked the FAQ's and am trying to narrow it down to the impeller or drain hose. What would both not drain and make this crunching noise?

My project for the week! Yay!


thanks for your help!


hot water heater leaking (# wx-203)

24 August 2012 - 07:25 AM

Dearest Wisest Appliance Sensei...Oh my goodness! Looks like from the papers of the install, this baby is 15 yrs old. the floor around the base is wet, and the water has leaked thru the wall/floor in the basement and into the playroom carpeting. At first sight, the top of the tank has rusty water pooling, and around the pipe inserts- where a big plastic cap and lots of insullation sit- the bolts and metal top are all rusted. Then on the side where the relief valve is- the valve itself has a patina colored corrosion, and where it attaches to the tank, is a lovely stream of rust colored streaks- from water leaking- streaming down to the floor.
I will try to upload a photo of this beast.
Is this a plumber fix, or can my Super Awesome funtime Husbandtaduh fix it?

Many thanks to all your help!


Edited to add:

this is the hot water TANK...not the heater...(uhh dingy blonde moment)

Wrong Model #- that one is the pressure water tank. sorry!
