Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My GE max leaves food bits on the disher. Is there a filter that needs cleaned?


Answers :

Usually on the floor there is a grill that strains the water. You may have a buildup of particles there. Your soap maybe old, you may have run out of the liquid that stops spots, or your water may not be hot enough. If the dw is more than 18 months old you probably need to rinse the dishes better before you put them in...especially rice, potatoes, anything with starch in it

We have a LG direct drive dishwasher (LDF7932ST) that doesn't seem to clean very well. It leaves dried on food bits and a white film on everything especially the cups and mugs. Even on the power scrub cycle with an extra rinse. If the problem is the recirculating pump how do you remove the arm or bottom filter to clean out? I can't seem to locate the instruction book.

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.
