Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

We have an Rangemaster RDW459F1 integrated dishwasher and there is a strong taste of salt on everything.We indroduced 2 kg of salt into the dispenser after first filling with water as instructed. We live in a hard water area but even so I turned the arrow more to the - side, but it has not made any difference. It did seem alot of salt to put but it was first time being used. Can you help me please? Jackie


Answers :

Stop using the tablets. they don't work in hard water areas. I think what you are dealing with is hard water deposits. Use "Lemi shine" for your main wash and the packets for your pre-wash. No one has harder water than where i live... Lemi shine works awesome!!!!

THe door suddenly won't shut all the way. I made sure there was nothing physically in the way--duh--then realize it has to do with the door itself. I made sure the inside of the latch (I guess that it would be called the feamle side) wasn't gunked up. The male side is free of gunk, dose not seem to be damaged. HELP!!!


Hi,\015\012\015\012Usually the only reason a dishwasher door will not close is if either someone has fallen on the door and stretched the door hinges which would then require a service call to replace them or if the unit is not level. if ... Dishwashers

Hi,\015\012Try taking the dishwasher out of its wall space and tipping it back and forth. Apparently the weight of water gathering in some component triggers the 'eco' function. Allow it to evaporate by waiting for few days. ... Dishwashers

Dirty dishes At first the grinder made a noise, then sounded normal.  Now the dishes have food particles stuck to them after the wash.  The soap cup does not completely empty either.  Oddly, it still drains well. Any ideas why the dishwasher won't clean the dishes?  Could the grinder have died?


On the bottom pull the wash arm straight up and out. It shouldn't be clipped because they held in by gravity. Under there is where you will find extra crud that gets lodged underneath the arm where you can't see it. Do you fill the rinse agent reserv ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

When we updated our kitchen, we chose a Miele dishwasher because we were told it was one of the best made. Unfortunately, while it does clean the dishes well, and is the quietest dishwasher I have ever had (almost silent!), it does not fit firmly in it's place, and even tips forward slightly when both of the drawers are extended. It will not anchor into the side walls with screws, so does anyone have any suggestions?


Are there not any tabs at the top of the dishwasher to mount it to the underside of the countertop? Most dishwashers mount this way to keep them from wanting to tip over. ... Miele Incognito G858SCVi Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner. Has worked fine until had a house plumbing blockage which made water pool in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as kitchen sink. Tried to get it to drain at first using keypad. Drain light clicked on and then off because there was nowhere for water to do. Manually emptied most of the water, then "Cancel/Drain" worked if I held it down quite a while. House plumbing is now fixed. However the keypad only works sporadically now. Some buttons do so


\015\012Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing. ... Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

My portable dishwasher hose that attaches to the faucet is to short for where I want my portable dishwasher to sit. I would like for it to sit in one spot. I am not allowed to alter or cut holes in the side of cabinets, I am renting. Is there an extension for the hose to the faucet? If not, what can I do to make the hose longer? If I really have to I will cut the two hoses that comes from the dishwasher to the faucet, but I would rather have an extension first.


You should be able to find extension or replacement hoses that you can use to extend the existing hoses at a hardware store. If you need to join two hoses that have female connectors, adaptors with two male connections are available. ... Dishwashers

I have a 13 month old Bosch SHE58c dishwasher. The pump runs constantly and will not refill the tank. There are no error codes thrown on the control panel, but not sure there are error codes for this model - the manual doesn't mention any. So I have removed the side panel and can see the bottom pan is bone dry and I made sure the overflow drain switch was not bound and operates freely. Is there some type of reset button or other task I can perform to continue troubleshooting this problem? Repair


I have exactly the same problem. Turn on the machine and it just pumps and pumps, door controls do nothing. According to the technician who came and looked at it the problem is a bad control board.

Bosch SMS6032GB/20 worked fine the first time but does not pump water inside hence the dishwasher stops. There is 1/4 water already inside on the left hand side.

Kenmore Tumble Action Washer, Model 417,44152400 LEAK! Leaky Door got progressively worse over a month. I replaced the boot and about 10 minutes into the first test wash there was a massive leak under the soap dispenser and down the hinge side of the door during a fill cycle that seemed to be going through the dispenser. This happened again during another fill through the dispenser. No leaks during subsequent fill through the boot hose, before the spin cycle and no leaks around the door

A built in whirlpool dishwasher is leaking around the door seal, right side to be more specific. cleaned the seal, and along the bottom and it still leaks. Is there an adjustment that can be made to tighten the door. I wouldnt think it would be the seal itself do to being less than 2 years old. Thankyou for this service.


Hi,There is no adjustment per say on this door or seal. If water spray directly on the door it can cause this, what I mean by that is if the spray arm, either the upper or lower is stuck and continually sprays in one place it can cause th ... Whirlpool Dishwashers
