Answers :

You might have really really hard water which would leave mineral deposits on your dishes,,, something could also be blocking the wash arm from rotating, or the water from shooting out of the wash arm which would result in very poor cleaning results

Spotty dishes Hi. I recently bought a new home only to find that we have very hard water.( I believe it was 23) Unfortunately, we do not have a whole house filter/softner yet, and it affects everything. Right now I am wondering if I wash my dishes in the dish washer with vinegar, will that work to get them clean and eliminate the hard water spots and clouding? Also, do you have any suggestions for doing the laundry? I have gotten filters for my showers, since it felt like I was swimming every t

Our Maytag MDB5000AWB has stopped using all its soap. Instead the soap just seems to run down the door and stay gooey (same Cascade we've used for years). I cleaned all the water jets to no avail. Also, the dishes don't seem clean and there is lots of soap spotting. Tom S.

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics.

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

We used our LG diswasher to clean our grill grates, which was a bad idea, because now the unit will not clean the dishes. We cleared the washer arms of debris, but the unit still is leaving the dishes on both racks dirty and is leaving the liquid soap dispensed into the unit undissolved on the door of the unit. There are no kinks in the water inlet, and water is getting into the unit, but the dishes are not getting cleaned.

Purchased in 2003. Dishes were exquisitly clean till 2008. Our water heater temp was set at 140 temp. This heater was replaced with a heater now set at 125 temp. In the past two years dishes are nowhere as clean on the the normal start setting. Should I go to the Pots and Pans start setting to get hotter water or should I turn up my water heater? All this is assuming that water is not hot enough. Does the washer heating element ever burn out?


Try turning on your water at the sink for a while on hot let it run then start the wash cycle that should help. what that will do is let the cold water run out of the pipes and therefore you will have a hot water start. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Asko 1996 appears "dead".....no lights flashing, won't respond to repeatedly pushing on/off button. Some water left in the bottom...siphoned it out, cleaned filters, no blockage there. Almost like it's not getting electricity, but breaker is on. Noticed this when I went to empty clean dishes, and noticed that detergent hadn't dissolved and dishes weren't clean and about a gallon of water was still in the bottom.....

My dish washer is 4 years old and is not cleaning dishes or disolving soap. HO appears in the status window which my manuel says indicates a water heat delay. How can this water heat delay be repaired ? I couldn't find my actual dishwasher on your list. It is model FDB2810LDC1 multi speed precision direct wash system with speed clean technology.


The water heat delay indication could be caused by the fact that the heating element has failed so that the washer will not proceed with the wash program until the water is up to the correct temperature.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with
