Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

The motor of my MAYTAG MDB6600AWW does the same noise but the water seems not to go all around in the dishwasher and the heater seems to function all the time. The detergent doesn't dissolve and, of course, dishes are not cleaned...

Quiet Guard Delux Model 665.13742K601 Dishes are not getting clean although some areas in the washer get cleaner than others. Detergent dispenser is not being fully cleaned and is caked with detergent after operating. In addition, the only "Cycle" light that seems to be working is the "Pots and Pans" cycle and the status lights also seem not to be functioning.

I have a fridigaire dishwasher PLD4555RFC0. The dishwasher now only cleans poorly if at all. The detergant used is powder and the detergant has been the same since purchasing the unit 3 years ago. The detergant does not completely dissolve on some dishes and is now staining/etching the dishes. I do not have a water softener, however, have tried the flushing with vinegar multiple times with no improvemnt. The water appears to be very hot as steam emerges when opening the door during the cycl

If the spray arm isn't moving, you either have a loose or broken drive belt that drives the spray arm. This would explain why the dishwasher runs through the cycles but doesn't clean or why the detergent isn't dissolving. The water is merely fillin ... Dishwashers

I have a Whirlpool DU8750XB-O Built-In Dishwasher. Recently, the detergent in the covered section of the dispenser has not been dissolving; it cakes into a lump. It is the same detergent I have always used. The dishes seem to be clean as always.

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster. I don't have a manual so

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

Our dishwasher is no longer cleaning dishes very well and usually the detergent tab that we put in does not dissolve completely. Our dishwasher is a General Electric Model # PDN7800G00WW and several years old. The water here is very hard. On a separate note and a new development is the control panel seems to be messing up. When we press the ''speed cycle'' which is normally 37 mins it goes to 86mins and lights up the ''speed cycle:'' button. pressing the ''glass cycle'' lights up the adjacent '

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!


Welcome to FixYa,Based on your description... I`d suspect a plugged or really dirty wash pump. It could ultimately be a worn out wash impeller/chopper assembly, but I'd certainly try my suggestions before considering that. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

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

Cleaning My dishwasher always leaves behind these brown small peices of crime. I use about 1 tsp of dry poweder (the repair told me to last year) and that helped with all the streaks on the dishes. I clean the traps often, clean off my dishes to the point as I might as well just do them by hand, and still I get these food particles or whatever it is. We have a good working water softner. I get so frustrated and it seems like such a waste of time. Any suggestions? Teree

Our 16 year old dishwasher takes way longer to finish cycles, has become very loud and now no longer cleans the dishes - especially the top rack and the silverware. We have hard water and I have run it with vinegar in a bowl 3 times and have been cleaning all the deposits I can today. It doesn't seem to be draining out all the gunk. Water flow seems ok, the arms have nothing blocking them. Any instructions for me to follow to clean out the mechanisms? Or has it run its lifespan... Thanks!


Parts are no longer available for your dishwasher. Typically - manufactures end support after 10 years.Your hard water deposits will never come all the way out. They will be "clean" for a month or so until another calcium chunk breaks free and ... 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.

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.....

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it was the circuit board and that the blinking light code indicated "too much suds", he replaced the circuit board, but it didn't make any difference. It's an intermittent problem: sometimes the machine completes its cycle OK. I ran it with just vinegar and nothing else in (no detergent, no dishe
