Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Hello, our Kenmore dishwasher's rinse agent dispenser is overflowing and won't empty. We haven't been able to add vinegar (all we have ever used in it) for a very long time. The dishes are definitely not coming out as clean anymore. Any ideas?


Answers :

Open the cap to the rinse despensor.
\015\012There is an arrow in the center that turns.
\015\012Turn it a click or 2 toward the dish washer bottom.
\015\012The more it faces the bottom the more rinse agent it will despense.
\015\012I hope this helps you....

My 5 year old bosch dishwasher cycles to one minute and then cycles forever and ever with very soapy water in the bottom. After a very long time, the water is out of the dishwasher but soap residue is left on the dishes and the bottom ot the dishwasher.We are presently using only 1/2 teaspoon of detergent (Finish brand). I have had a repairman here to look at it, but he didn't seem confident that it was a timer issue and even though I have paid the exorbitant service call fee, I am not sure I wa

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago. Ideas?

Have a new GE Profile dishwasher. The LED time display started at 62 the first time we used the machine. It keeps going up and is now at 108. Is it broken and how do we reset the time back to something more reasonable. We typically pre-wash the dishes anyway and it shouldn't have to take that long to clean....thanks!

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

I have a 1999 bosch SHU 4300 dishwasher given to me. It worked great for about two weeks. Now it takes for ever *3-4 hours* to complete a cycle (if it does). I have opened the door to see it filled with sudsy soap after this long. I have checked the hoses and they are not kinked. Once the cycle of cleaning is over, If I reset it manually, it will rinse the dishes and empty just fine. But I have to manually get the dishwasher to advance to the rinse and dry cycle every time now.

Washer went dead. replaced thermal fuse and it worked for about a week and went dead again. Before going dead it seemed to take it a long time to do a load of dishes. The last load ran 1 1/2 hours and still showed 45 minutes to go on the timer before it quit completely. Any ideas?


Sounds like you have a bad control board on unit.and the reason the thermal fuse went out is one of the relays are getting stuck on unit. before long the fuse will go bad again when the resistance level gets to high again. i would replace the control ...

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." 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. I don't have a manual so

My dishwasher is brand new Model FDB1502RGS0. I used it for the first time today. It seemed to be cleaning for a very long time. It was up to 2 hours and I had to leave so I turned it off. How long should it take. That seems like an awfully long time. I kept waiting for the drying mode to start and it sounded like it kept filling up and emptying. Does this sound right? Please advise asap.


Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the\015\012sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first\015\012wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based\015\012upon the water temp ... Dishwashers

We have been using this model since Sept. 2007.When new, it worked very well. It has over time, performed less then we would expect. Not only do we have to scrub dishes by hand before placing them into washer,they some times require hand washing after being washed by machine. Not only are they dirty, the glasses are covered with a cloudy white film. We have not done any maintenance or service to this dish washer. Does this washer require some sort of service or attention. Please advise. Thanks
