Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishes are still dirty. I have used every kind of dishwasher aide, half loaded it and dishes are still dirty, I let the water run until very hot before starting the washer. The washer says you don't have to rinse but I do and they still come out dirty. Also black nasty stuff comes up from my garbage disposer.


Answers :

Suggest the problem may be a plumbing issue - likely substantially blocked drain system, so the dirty wash water cannot properly pump out but rather remains in the dishwasher.

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product. We got all the soap out of the hole and took towels to dry out the tub, but F1 comes on even when the washer is turned off. We have the double tall dish drawer in stainless steel. Even though they did not put anything in the bottom drawer it too comes on by it self and shows F1. I can not find our manual. Please help. Thank you so much. Kim Toth

Maytag Dishwasher Model MDB4100AWQ When I start the Light Wash Cycle: Washer fills with water, heater comes on (I checked it with a volt meter--120 volts), timer runs, motor never runs, before the timer gets to "rinse" the heating delay light on the door comes on and the timer stops. The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer. Note: If I manually forward the timer to "rinse" the motor will kick in and run but does not pump out w

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. I used this dishwasher for 1-1/2 years with no problems and now I have this problem. What is going on?

The dishwasher is not cleaning. It has left a residue all over the dishes especially colored plastic ware glasses. like it doesn't rinse but i have ran the extra rinse cycle and residue is still there. It has actually stained the dishes. Then ceramic dishes are not clean. And ones on the top rack feel like there is a coating on them that does not come off unless you rinse by hand.

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out.

I have a maytag quiet series that does not rinse the dishes effectively. I have practically washed the dishes before loading and they still come out with dirt and a film stuck on them. I have changed detergents, rinse aids with no improvement. What next?

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover


If the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms. ...

White Residue Yes...we have the same problem as well with the residue as was mentioned by several others. I guess our dishwasher is still under warranty since it is only 11 months old. It can be serviced if it is a defect or part malfunction but otherwise I may end up with a service bill. That would add to the ongoing frustrations we have with this appliance. Right now we call it our dish dirtier! We put fairy clean rinsed dishes in and....voila....out comes dirty dishes covered in white gr

I have a Kenmore Ultra wash Quiet guard 4 and when it gets done washing, it leaves tiny pieces of food on the dishes. I have used the dishwasher cleaners a few times and started rinsing my dishes till they are clean and they still come back.

Even though I put the machine on the pots and pans setting, it still does not get the dishes clean, for example there is still coffee ground residue in the mugs. Twice before I have had to pay $100-$200 to have a serviceman come and clean out the little fan/cutter that is in the bottom (inside) of the machine. The serviceman found small chicken bones in the base which we had not rinsed off the plates. Can you tell me how to clean out this fan/cutter device myself? Are there any special tools

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean? Or do we give up on this thing and replace it. Only 3 years old. Any recommendations? We assummed the newer dishwashers would not need pre-rinse by hand but would clean.
