Ultra Wash Hi, When I got up this morning, I noticed the dishes were still dirty and dry??  The soap dispenser had popped open but that was about it.  I had some work done on it because it wasn't cleaning the dishes properly about a year ago and they replaced the motor.  While cleaning the kitchen last night, I heard it come on, but now that I think about it, I never actually heard the water start sloshing around. I don't have the owner's manual - I bought this house 3 years ago and I think the

We live on an island in the Caribbean and we have a LG dishwasher (model LDF 8812) that has worked fine for a year, but has recently stopped washing effectively. At first, the top part dishes were coming out still soiled from food. Now the bottom part dishes are coming out soiled as well. We checked both the Owner's Manual and the Service Manual and none of the troubleshooting suggestions appear to be relevant to our problem. The water here is very hard, and the water pressure is low and fluctua

Dirty dishes Pump went on this machine about 6 months ago. Since the install of the new pump the dishes do not come clean. Particles finely ground or tomato seeds, sesame seeds etc. get blasted back on the dishes in the final rinse cycle. Repair guy has no clue... could there be a pinched line upon install that won't allow complete drainage, or the wrong pump? Is ther filter screen? I have done the vinegar reoutine plus a purchased cleaner to no avail. The machine is a bout 13 years old. Thank y

My Bosch dishwasher is 8 years old and always worked well.. About a year or two ago the dishes started coming out dirtier than when they were put in, frequently encrusted with dirt and shredded dirt which looked like finelly shredded vegetable discards from the garbage disposal. The first set of repairmen sold me a new pump. The next people told me there was nothing wrong with it. The third repairman told me that I have to set the water heater on very High (for $98.00)

Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

My dishwasher has been fine for five years. Suddenly, about six months ago, the glasses came out scummy and there seems to be a coating on the dishes as well. Is this calcium deposit? If so, why would it suddenly begin -- the water supply is the same. Is there a defect in the dishwasher? Thanks.

We have a Bosch SHE44C02UC/46 that suddenly won't start. I pushed the on/off button to start the dishes cleaning on the 'Power Scrub Plus' cycle and the display lights up with a 125 min. indication for the cleaning time, but the dishwasher never starts. It just sits there completely silent and never begins the cleaning. The dishwasher has worked perfectly up to, and including, the last cleaning cycle (3 days ago) for the last 4 years.

All of a sudden, my dishes are not coming out as clean, especially the top rack of glasses. They have a white film on them.. I changed the detergent and that didn't help. We have lived here for 20 years and have had this dishwasher over 3 years? I feel as if the upper arm is not rotating during the cycle. Could this be broken?

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

Our Maytag model MDB4010AWW (8 1/2 years old) is leaving food stuck on the dishes and glasses on the top rack consistently. We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little. We posted this question to a similar forum a few weeks ago, and it was suggested that the wash pump might need replacement. What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp


It would cost you at least the 200.00 to have it replaced since the pump cost 150.00 and you would have labor added. It should last longer than it did if that's what's wrong with it. I would first observe to see if the upper spray arm is spinning and ... Dishwashers

Model GU2700XTS81 purchased a few months ago. Dishes come out with chalky white film on them. I am currently using Palmolive Eco liquid and Cascade Crystal clear rinse. At first I thought I might be using too much detergent so I cut it almost in half with the same results. I don't think it's the water because I never had this problem before. I use adaptive or normal wash and Heated dry. Please advise

My 12 yr old KitchenAid -Sculptura-Model KUDR24SE starts to fills with water and then does nothing else. It will eventually go through the cycles on the panel, but nothing is happening inside. End result is still dirty dishes with water sitting in the bottom that has to be baled out. Cups on top rack don't have any water on the indentations, so it's obvious that the thing filled with water and that's it.
