Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Chunks of Junk on my Dishes

\015 I moved into a rental home, and I would swear the dishes get DIRTIER in the dishwasher.......not cleaner. It seems to run thru the cycles just fine, but the dishes are left with chunks of junk on them. HELP!\015

Answers :

It is likely the drain into the side of the disposer has become clogged\015\012. you have to disconnect the rubber hose and run a twisted wire up into\015\012the hose and be certain the hole into the disposer is clear, seal the\015\012hose back with some silicone as it is old and cracked likely or just\015\012watch for any hose leaks .
\015\012after that the drain should **** all debris clear.
\015\012if not do it again but use a water hose to back flush the drain.
\015\012and a bit of bleach in all your washings to break up the mold inside the pipes and keep the dishes clean.

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster.
