Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

MY DISHWASHER IS LEAVING A WHITE FILM ON MY DISHES AND THE INSIDE OF THE WASHER.WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM. ALSO THE AUTO CLEAN BUTTON DOES NOT WORK.


Answers :

Almost all the time it's hard water or you are out of rinse aid. I have went to some homes with that problem and I find out their water softener quit working or out of salt. Other then that check the rinse aid. Basically dishwashers are pretty stupid machines, they just splash water around and can't really "cause" spotting and things. I'm almost sure that's it. Good luck
It is definately your hard water but you do not need a whole house water softener. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a new product out for this problem. it filters only the water entering your dishwasher and will leave your dishes looking amazing. it is like 70 bucks and has a money back guarantee as well. you will love this product

I have a whirlpool model KuDSO1FL and the clean light blinks and won't start after the cycle has been selected and the start button is pressed. I have tried canceling the cycle but it won't work. The dishwasher was working yesterday and today it drained once we cancelled the cycle and then pressed start but that is all that we could get done. I don't know what the problem is.


Your appliance's clean light blinking will require a service call. It could be several things indicating a problem that are not serviceable by the home owner. You can try turning the power off at the breaker box, then turn it back on and see if this ... Dishwashers

My Delonghi Dishwasher keeps turning off. The dishwasher is turned on at the power point. The water is turned on. Okay When I press the POWER botton on the front it wont stay on.

Our whirpool dishwasher seems to be cleaning the dishes here and there, missing some. The top shelf of the dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning at all. Also the soap dispenser does not seem to be quite empty of soap when the cleaning cycle is done. It is running fine. Could it have something to do with the panel where all the buttons are? Could the sequence be off or something? Thank you Awaiting your reply

I have a blinking cancel light on model GU1200xtlt1 and will not start in any cycle. Also if I push another button it flashes rinse button and cancel button. Before this it ran in Sani Clean over and over again and I could not change the cycle. I emptied out a bit of water from the bottom because it did not drain also and the water was not smelling too good.

Dishlex DX450 has been working OK for years - suddenly not washing - white deposits and cutlery looks greasy - but machine clean and all filters and arms clear of debris.

Describe your whirlpool du948pwpq Problem: I have a whirlpool du948pwpq dishwasher in a tenant's unit. They said the delay start button is no longer working. Also, they cannot "de-select" the heated dry option. It seems to be an issue with the electronics of the control panel. I've already tried to "unlock" the buttons - no change.

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Is there

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

Now there is water sitting at the bottom of the dishwasher, and the "Clean" and "Rinse Only" buttons are blinking. I've read the manual, and ran the Automatic Function test, and it seems that these two buttons blinking indicates a Motor problem, specifically a low current problem. Please Help!
