I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

For the last few weeks, my dishes, glasses, silverware, etc. are coming out of the dishwasher with a white film on them. I use good detergent, hot water, and a rinse aid. They look awful and I sometimes have to rewash things by hand to get rid of the film. What can be the problem?

My Miele dishwasher is about 16 months old. Initially it was awesome. Now it doesn't get anything truly clean on any rack. Every item has scum and traces of food or drink left on it. I've cleaned the filter and the no-return valve, and refilled the salt (yes, I used the right one) and rinse aid. The manual has no other instructions to remedy dirty dishes. The water is hot, and the machine seems to be running just fine. Where should I look for a problem?


The other possible problem is that the spray arms have small bits of food (sesame seeds are nasty!) stuck in the holes. Take the arms off and flush them out. You might need to poke out seeds that are stuck in the holes. ... Miele G880 Dishwasher

Dishwasher I have a whirlpool dishwasher that does not appear to be getting hot water. The washer water is cold initially and only seems to get warm once the heater in the base of the machine heats it. The hot water supply line does not get hot so I presume no water is being supplied. Is the water supposed to be hot at the start. If yes could this be caused be a faulty inlet valve and if so how can I check. The dishes are dirty especially on the top rack. Thanks for your help.

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Hygena Dishwasher My dishwasher does not drain the water away properly. About an inch of water lies in the bottom after a cycle. Incidentally, when I put it on a "cold rinse" (which is the only other setting to "wash 60c") it rinses with hot water. Is my switch and my pump broken or is there another possibility?

I have an Ariston LS245 dishwasher, have just had the pump replaced, as it had shorted out, due to water in the bottom tray where the water detection float is, also a new drain hose fitted. Have just run a wash and after running a while, presumably to the end of the rinse, wash and dry cycle, then one of the cycle phase lights, the one for 'soak' blinks constantly. I switched the machine off and had a look to see if a wash had been done, the dishes look clean. In the book it says that if one

Dishes aren't cleaning. Filling with water, rinsing then draining, refilling with water -- hot, soap released. When dishes come out, barely clean. Used to work like a charm... Thoughts?

Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no

I have had a repairman come out and look at this and he says all the diagnostic test say everything is okay. My problem: my dishes come out dripping wet...like it hasnt dried anything. Sometimes dishes are still dirty. I don't think there is any heat getting to anything. I run the water in the sink beforehand to try to get the water hot.

When I take a glass or cup out of the dish washer after they are cleaned and heat dried, or a day plus from the cabinet to put cold water,too many small bubles are floating on top the water surface, as a soap-like condition; it clears up shortly. The tech told me it is normal. I think it is not normal because I suspect the rinsing is not totally complete because of the water conservation design. Am I drinking soap-water?
