Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hello. My dishwasher has been pretty perfect for four years. When my house water softener ran out of salt, I added rinse aid and salt to the dishwasher for the first time. I subsequently added salt to the softener. Recently [a few weeks later] the glasses have all come out cloudy, something that never happened before. Also, the cutlery has whitish marks on it which are impossible to remove. I would love some help on this. Many thanks, Terry


Answers :

Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have helped cause this problem. Hope this helps!

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can

Hi. Just bought a Blomberg dishwasher & have a question about the water softening feature. What is the appropriate type of salt? The manual says no table salt, no coarst salt. It recommends a highly soluble type salt, fine-grained or powdered. What kind of salt is this? (And, why wouldn't water softening salt pellets work?)

We have a Bosch dishwasher supplied with softened water - does a great job. However, on the most recent run, the soap door didn't open properly and the soap puck (we use those two part liquid/powder that dissolve) was only partially dissolved. Our stainless steel cutlery now has a hazy film all over it, something that handwashing and a subsequent successfully-executed dishwasher run didn't remove. It's expensive cutlery, less than a year old, and a wedding gift from my mother who lives next d

Our Ariston LI645A dishwasher is not drying the dishes completely and whenever the cycle has finished, it always resorts back to the ECO cycle whereas we usually have it on the normal cycle? I have filled up the rinse aid but it does not seem to make a difference.
