I have a bosch dishwasher model number SGS0902GB/05. I use tablets instead of detergent. I put the tablet in the Dispenser and close the lid, noproblem. I then set the programme and shut the door, I usually set the programme to delay start so that it washes dishes in the small hours when all are in bed, however, when I have set the programme and close the door within a minute the dispenser assembly opens and the tablet falls into the dishwasher, I then try and put the tablet back in the dispe

I tried the steps listed at this website for the same issue I am having. http://www.fixya.com/support/t273954-kenmore_elite_dishwasher The steps worked to get the dishwasher to "reset" with all the lights coming on. The problem I am having now is that after the "reset" the dishwasher starts to run a small cycle for about 5 minutes. Upon opening the washer, nothing has happened inside (no water, no visible movement of parts, no soap container opening). Upon closing the dishwasher and trying

I have a 4yr old Smeg freestanding dishwasher. Model is DF612SDX. The problem is that a wash cycle will start but about 15 mins in it stops and 2 of the programme option lights (on the left hand side of the programme options), start flashing. If you open the machine the soap dispenser has failed to open. This problem has been a bit of a slow deterioration as we've had a number of washed that have managed to finish and then noticed that although the dispenser has opened it must have been to

SOAP DISPEN DISHWASHER SOAP DISPEN NOT OPENING I bought a brand new LG dishwasher about 6 months ago. I've had a few problems with it. First, it gives off a smell when it operates. Secondly, more often than not, the soap dispenser does not open. I have read the manual and have tried putting a lot less soap but it still does not work. Should I try switching to liquid soap instead?

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

Model #363.14232100 dishwasher. When you turn the switch to on, it will not come on. If you keep turning the knob slowly you can hear the dishwasher trying to start up,but it doesn't. Keep turning the knob and its the same thing, sounds like it will start, but it doesn't. It did fill with water, but once it was opened it didn't start up where it left off. The lock switch was in position, and still nothing. Now I have water in the bottom but can't get the thing to come on. Any suggestions? Help!

My Frigidaire fghd2433kf1 starting flashing PF occasionally. I would open and close the door and it would go away. It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works. It acts like it has no power coming into it. I checked the breakers and the wires connecting the power into the dishwasher. No luck. I replaced the control panel, but not the control board. It did

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t
