appliance doctor :

Make sure you clean out number 7 in the breakdown thats whre you will find more.

Customer: I looked at the video but our dishwashers impeller is not the same as the one on that video.

If its just clogged up you dont require an impeller, just clean out the gunk especially in the number 7 in the breakdown .

Customer: Sorry what is number 7?
appliance doctor :

Its called the accumulator filter and it gets gunk in the filter , you can remove it and wash it out under the kitchen tap .

Customer: Ok. We are trying that.
appliance doctor :

It should fix the problem for you.

Customer: Ok. We are going to put it back together and see if that works. I will stay logged in. Again sorry about he poor service thing. I will rate properly when we are done.
appliance doctor :

A rating of three or more will credit me for helping with the d/w problem .

appliance doctor :

You should pour a cup full of CLR and let it go through a cycle this will really clean it out .

Customer: Will do.
appliance doctor :

great , let me know how you make out .

appliance doctor :

have you had a chance to go through a cycle to see if it works better now that you cleaned it out ?

Customer: It worked!
