Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My glasses are net getting clean, this just started to happen. What can the problem be?


Answers :

The most common reason for dishes (especially glasses) not getting clean is the dishwasher's heating element has failed.

When the heating element does not turn on when it should, the water is not heated enough to activate the dishwasher detergent.

Also, if you have recently started to use a new box of DW detergent powder, if you bought the cheap kind, that could cause problems, but normally that leaves white marks on the glasses, not a dirty film.

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.

All of a sudden about 1 month ago my stainless steel dishwasher started getting a strange white film on bottom which now is starting to turn crusty, It is affecting the soap dispenser badly and certain black plastic utensils being washed come out with this white film. Mysteriously, all the dishes, glasses, silverware come out perfectly clean. What is causing this? It is getting worse.


You could try adding vinegar to clean the white film off. If you wanted to be aggressive with it try using CLR to clean off the film from the dishwasher. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.

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

Hi Model DU1048XTPQ4...when I started the DW today, it sounded kind of loud. I let it continue, then I smelled something burning. What I think happened is that the lower spray arm is too loose-so when it spins, it gets stuck on the heat ring on the bottom of the DW and then the plastic parts start to melt. We disassembled the spray arm and there was lots of calcium/lime build-up. So we cleaned all of that out, put it all back together, but the spray still seems too wobbly. Went ahead and start

After 3 years it just started making a loud noise, I am no expert but it sounds like a fan in a motor. I have only heard it today, but I am betting it will still happen next load too. I didn't change any of the settings, have been running the same way forever. When I did hear this noise I started pushing buttons to see if I could get it to stop, no good, no change. The cycle has completed and everything looks ok, waiting on the dishes to dry. Drainage has never been a problem for me either.


I would say this is a build up of lime.try changing your tablets and checking your salt levels.there is no fan .try what i say and see what happens.have you found a glass broken it could be as simple as that but i dont think its serious.adrian,,,, ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
