Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Just moved into a house with a Asea Skandia cylinda 1200 dishwasher and it seems to be only washing the top half of the dishes. I don't have a manual so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Toni Hillyer

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Make sure to start with that the middle spray arm is not hitting a large plate or saucepan and is stopping the spray arm from spinning.
\015\012
\015\012The spray arms rotate with the force of water going through them. Water then sprays out of the holes in each of the spray arms. If the holes in the spray arms are blocked up with food you will also get poor wash results as the water cannot spray the cutlery and clean them.
\015\012
\015\012So remove each spray arm by unscrewing one at a time and checking for any blockages in the holes. Use a tooth pick or something similar to clean each arm under a running tap.
\015\012
\015\012Once all three spray arms are clean and free from any obstructions line them all up in the same direction facing forward and run a cycle for a while and open the door at intervals to see if they have moved position. If you open the door quick enough you will just see them spinning.
\015\012
\015\012Hopefully that is all that is wrong with your machine.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou


I'm having a similar issue. Are you sure the arm isn't moving at all?\015\012\015\012Generally what I'm finding is either you have a clog or the pump motor is bad.\015\012Hear is the service manual.\015\012 ... Dishwashers

I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working? It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!

It doesn't get the dishes clean. It has never gotten the dishes clean in the 2 years i have had it. The service man was here while it was under warranty and said there was nothing wrong with it and that i just had to rinse my dishes well before i put them in the dishwasher. The manual says not to rinse, just scrape.
