Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

After cycle, there is grit on my dishes

\015 When it runs it cycle and is done, there is grit on some of the dishes and some just won't come clean. My dishwasher is about a year old and this just started happening in the last 3 wks. I have used the same powder detergent ever since. Another troubleshooting website told me to check the particle filter and inlet filter screens. What and where the heck are these??\015

We are getting a grit on the dishes on the top rack. We have done many things to solve the problem. Running tang crystles, runing CLR through it, taking it apart to check for blockages, checking the impeller on the pump, blowing comprssed air through it, scrubbing the inside many times. The funny thing is it only happens about every third wash cycle or so. The upper spray arm is free with no obstruction. The dishes on the bottom rack are clean. We use Electosol and jet dry. Our water is softened

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or

My G832SC is not draining at the end of the cycle. It runs the entire cycle, and the dishes appear to be clean. The soap dispenser has opened and the dishes are rinsed. However, the dry cycle doesn't run because the machine doesn't drain at the end. The intake/drain light is flashing. If I reset the machine and start a new cycle, it will perform an initial drain and the water level does go down. We checked the tri-filter and the valve pump thing, rinsed both.

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.

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

Soap has collected and hardened inside dishwasher and comes off and flakes on the dishes. I have tried cleaning with a few cycles of 1 cup vinegar (no dishes) and making sure the water is the hottest. I also tried Dishwasher Magic which did not help at all. Can I use Lime Away? Is that safe? Or will that poison me with the next cycle of dishes? Is there another solution? Thanks, Missi Walkyourbike

Hi, I have an LG LDS4821 dishwasher and it appears to stop working properly. The dishes don't seem to be cleaned at all. It seems like the spray arms are not spraying the dishes as the dishes are still dry/dirty after a normal wash cycle. I did notice that the detergent was used during the wash, and a trail of white residue was at the bottom of the tub. I can hear water pumping into the dishwasher, but when I opened it during a wash cycle, there was a puddle of water at the bottom of the

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.
