Bosch SHE5AL06UC/05 Dishwasher

25 July 2011 - 10:29 PM

We have had this dishwasher for less than a year. A couple months after purchase, the detergent dispenser would stop opening during the cycle, leaving the dishes less than pleasant. We had a repair call come out to look at it since it was under warranty; they determined the control board for the detergent opener was faulty. A few months later, the problem has returned. The dishwasher is still under warranty (barely), however I fear this becoming a theme with this dishwasher. Things we have checked:

- Detergent cup is clean.
- Spray arms are not obstructed (somehow the spray arms signal the cup to open?)
- Lever connecting the door to the detergent cup is in working order.

Currently my wife sets a timer in the kitchen after she starts the dishwasher so that she can manually open the detergent cup; everything else works fine but she is getting tired of having to do this.

Any tips?

Any opinion on Reliance brand electric water heaters?

Local Electrical supply store sells this model of water heater at a very competitive price, and its got the best EF (0.95) and average kwhw/yr rating of any models I have seen locally.  Never heard of the brand before, though, so I thought I would present this to the local Samurai masters to see what they thought...



Should I buy the following: Frigidaire Washer and Dryer

07 January 2008 - 01:49 PM

I am in the market for a new dryer, trying to keep things under control financially.  A friend of mine has the following Frigidaire units for sale:


FWTR445RFS0 (washer)  and FDE436RES1 (dryer)


He is asking $250 for the pair, he says each cost $1000 when he bought them new.  They are about 9 years old.  Initial inspection looks like they are in pretty good shape.  They are selling them because they bought a new house and want a new set. 



GE Dishwasher Model GSD1000G02WW

03 September 2007 - 07:36 AM

Having an odd problem with this relatively new GE Dishwasher (about 9 months old).  When we start a load, the water will come out at a good pressure but the arm does not spin.  The arm spins freely when I adjust it trying to move it.  After a few minutes, it starts working again.  Any idea why this might be happening?  It was my understanding that the water pressure caused the arm to spin. 

Need help disassembling GE/Hotpoint NVL333EY0WW dryer

22 August 2007 - 04:19 AM

I have a GE/Hotpoint NVL333EY0WW dryer that is taking a long time to dry as well as doing a little squeaking while running.   After reading the FAQs on your site, I am replacing the old vinyl tubing with some aluminum tubing.  I also want to open up the dryer and clean out any lint that has collected over the last 3 years.  The problem I am having is that neither the "Old Style" or "New Style"  GE disassembly guides appear to apply to my dryer.   It "looks" like the New Style, however there are no screws in the opening of the dryer. 


Could one of the Samurai guide this young padwan leaner?
