Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

It has been awhile since my dishwasher has been cleaned and someone told me about filters and stuff. Is there anything I can do or buy that will clean out all the gunk and stuff from the dishwasher arrms and filters and things?


Answers :

You can try and run 1 cup white vinegar through a cycle.  if that doesn't do it, you can purchase a product called "Dishwasher Magic" available at k-mart and sears and see if that helps.

I have a whirlpool dishwasher model adp 5550 condenser. The dishes do not get clean. I have had a repair man out twice and he replaced the soap dispenser on Friday but it still doesn't work. I went to the store today and bought every cleaning things I could find for dishwashers and also started to investigate online myself. I took the arms off and cleaned them, I took the filter out and cleaned it, and then I noticed that the plastic bar that runs from the top, along the back and into the bottom

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

My Thermador dishwasher DWHD64EP/54 does not get the dishes clean. We checked all the usual things--water to the dishwasher is hot, filters clean, spray arms working and not clogged, detergent cups working, proper amts of detergent etc. We find that no steam is produced during the cycles, we find that the when choosing a cycle and power boost incorrect cycle times are now displayed compared to previous usage when the dishwasher ran normal. Some of the longer cycles now show only 24 min

My Inglis dishwasher (E71195), 13 years old, doesn't clean properly. There is a film on everything that is especially noticable on glassware. I have cleaned every filter and unclogged everything that I could think of. I tried different detergents; right now I am using the same stuff in the dishwasher as we use to clean the milking equipment in our dairybarn because it gives the best result. It still is not as it should be however, there is still something left on the bottom of the glasses. It is

I pulled everyting out and cleaned all the filters (which weren't that dirty) but still no luck. I could only get so much stuff out to clean before it looked like to go any further, I would need to gain access through the bottom. Are there more filters in the motor area which might need cleaning? I read that it could be the vario motor. Can I test this? and if s

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

The dishwasher won't fill with water. We took the water inlet valve off and cleaned the filter screen. The dishwasher worked about 2 times and started doing the same thing. We then replaced the water inlet valve and again, the dishwasher worked a couple of times and now we're back to it not filling again. What could the problem be?

I have an LG dishwasher, model LDS 5811ww. The machine fills with water, then stops filling when the error code IE comes on. I have cleaned the inlet filter and the whole inside of the tub, by taking apart the sump filter. There is good water pressure filling the tank. When I turn off the power and restart any cycle, the pump will empty the tank, then begin filling the tank again...until it is stopped by the error code IE again coming on. The other thing I notice is the water level in the tub.

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

My dishwasher filter keeps getting plug up with large food particles. I take it apart and clean the screen. It works for a 2-3 -4 weeks before I have to do it again. There is a spinning fan on the screen. I'm wondering if this scrapper fan is working at all. If it was I think it would keep the small screen free from particles. The first thing that happens is the top cleaning arm stops working.' Thanks


Hi Judy. The only way to know for sure is to power up the fan independent of the machine and see if it still works. In the meantime, rinse and remove all debris from the dishes prior to placing them in the machine, including pots and pans. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Hi I have 4 yo sgs53e Bosch dishwasher which will not drain. I have removed and cleaned the filter, have undone the screw and removed the white cover, cleaned the tracks and ensured that the little propeller thing turns in both directions (requires a bit of a turn but does turn).

Figidare dishwasher Upper arm not rotating, no water coming from top hole to fill upper arm.Lower arm rotates shoot water up cleaned filter screens. Check ball seems ok by pump, is there a location it (ck ball) should be? My upper arm is not rotating, things are coming out crusty, and it's definitely not getting water to the upper arm. My check ball seems to be plugging the tube the water goes up in.


It seems other posts were correct - The upper arm doesn't spin all the time. Once I learned that, and let the dishwasher cycle through, I saw that the upper arm does spin. So, there wasn't a problem with the upper arm afterall. That doesn't solve ... Dishwashers

I'm trying to remove the disposal cover in the dishwasher (GE GSD3207P00WW) in order to clean it, but unlike previous models I've dealt with, this one has a filter thing that looks like a tilted plate, just under the main washer, and that has apparently a drainage tube (or some such) that goes down through the disposal cover, so I'm unable to remove it. How does one take that apart?

My AEG Oko Favorit 50750 VI built-in dishwasher has been unpredictable for a few weeks - sometimes leaving things dirty although I've run cleaning programmes and replaced the filter basket thingy - but today I have a power light on but no other lights - no programme lights and no 'end' light either. Not sure if it finished the last cycle or not. Desperate not to replace as cash is tight - is there anything obvious I might check please? Thanks..
