  3. Hi guys, After 2 years and 1 month, my Maytag dishwasher just died (by the way, is Maytag a good and reliable brand anyway?). Here is the story: 1) After starting the dishwasher, the water comes in. But after that, nothing will happen. No sound, nothing. 2) If I open the door, then close it, and press resume. I can hear a few "click" sounds, each separated by a second or two. But still nothing happens after that. 3) If I press the cancel button, water drains out correctly. 4) If I run the self diagnosis, it shows code such as (in this order): F6, E4, F-, E- 5) Via some google, some people says the code may indicate water intake issue - but it does get water in when I start the machine, so I am not sure if that is the true issue. PS, not always, but a few times, I think I smell a light rubber burn smell. But not always and the smell is light. Most of my DIY friends say maybe the motor is dead (the "click" sounds means it can't start the motor). But before I jump on that, just want to see if there is any other possibility. Thanks!

  12. Hi - Rookie here, relatively handy, have taken many things apart. Often they go back together and sometimes they even work. I have a ~1yr old Bosch SHX68T55UC/07 that is pretty wonky. Behavior includes: Stopping mid cycle (power off) Pressing power may or may not work when it turns off. Position of the door may allow power button to work, but often it shuts off as you swing the door closed. Most often when power is pushed to light it back up, the time on the display is ~1hr left on an AUTO cycle (2:04 on display at start) but it has stopped relatively early in the cycle also. maybe 80% of the time it is restarted it will run to completion. The rest require Power button + Start button to resume the cycle Sometimes when I am awake and close enough to hear it running through a cycle it will turn on and off repeatedly. (we run it overnight) If I open the door at this time it is full and hot (steam escapes door). Same door position behavior, opening door may cause it to lose power, closing slightly may light it back up. Location of door is random - it doesnt turn off at the same door position each time Often in the morning it will be "off" rather than showing "clean". It rarely seems to finish at "clean" but since we dont run it in the day that could be caused by it turning itself off after it gets to "clean" and us just not being around to see it at "clean" It will randomly turn itself "on". (beep + display on top of door is alive) It will not start a cycle, but will beep on, then turn off, then beep on... and do that randomly back and forth as long as it wants. I can sometimes get this on and off to stop by opening the door and manually pushing POWER to turn it off. But just as often it will go back to beep on, off, beep on, etc. I am guessing there is water getting into a board or connection, or a board or connection is lose and the heat from the cycle causes it to 'open' (although this doesnt really explain the random turning on for me, but again I coming from relative ignorance here) I am hoping there is a way to somewhat definitively figure out what is up or at least get some steps of things to check and test. I like to tinker and have the tools, but if you deem this above my pay grade then if there is a reputable repair co in Boston Metrowest (Natick) I am open to that. Just not keen on the dart throw that calling Bosch support seems to be. (I think they referred us to sears repair with a $125 min to show up, and if that test run is the one in ten that cycles to completion without issue (as Murphy would have it) then I am sitting with a bill and a still wonky dishwasher) I have film of most of the behavior (although that may be dating myself, let's call it Video) I have seen posts in random forums stating that the door latch is an issue, and from what I can tell this is not the cause here. I can have the door open and it will still turn itself on and off. So I dont think it is the door popping open during the cycle. Additionally, if it matters, we use Cascade Gel and Cascade Rinse Aid. (against what the sticker says, but in the Bosch at my old place we got the cottage cheese in the filter and associated stink when using Finish) Thanks
  13. I need a service manual anyone have one or know where to get it other than on the unit I will work on?

  22. A technician came to do a warranty repair on my dishwasher (see my previous post). He saw that we were using powder detergent and remarked that they were bad for dishwashers. I have not read anything else in this regard. Almost all of the the info on the web has to do with the relative cleaning ability of powders vs. liquids, etc. Does anyone have any thoughts about this? Thanks!
