Kleenmaid dishwasher wont distribute detergent during wash - the cap doesn't seem to open consistently. I tried powerballs (finish), now I am using a powder and rinse aid. The posder is either not used during the wash or half used. We only moved in two months ago and I can't get it to work. It has worked about twice.

Dishes won't clean and leave a white film. Repair guy has been out twice and says everything mechanical is working good and that its the detergent with rinse aid. I've been using the detergent for 4 years the same way and adding rinse aid as well. Also the water temp was increased to 120 from 115 because he stated it was to cool. Help.

The machine works fine, but about one out of every 4 or 5 times it is run, the detergent remains in the dispenser. The dispenser door has opened and the detergent is hard packed from having gotten wet. It seems like whatever is supposed to cause the detergent to be flushed out of the dispenser is not happening. Am I loading the dishwaher is such a way that the detergent is not getting out?

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses.

We haave a Frigidare FGHD2433KB1 dishwasher that we installed in September of 2010. Already it is not working and we are 2 highway hours from the place where we bought it. Sometimes the detergent doesn't open, sometimes dishes are not dry, recently the PF light has been coming on - yet no other appliance has had power interrupted. I am thoroughly disgusted with this machine and there are only two of us in the house so it get light use and we rinse our dishes well before placing in dishwasher.

I have a Bosch SHY66 dishwasher. The detergent cup will not open. The rinse injector stoped working a long time ago. I removed the outer door and the mechanism for the detergent cup and rinse injector is exposed. I see a clear fluid inside.

Hello, we have a Fagor dishwasher mod.# FI-48 W, the problem we are having is that very little or no rinse solution is being applied during the rinse cycle.

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time. Sometimes about 40 percent of the time, when we open the main door after it is finished with a normal cycle, we find a big clump of detergent left in the main detergent compartment and the detergent door is open. It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening

Asko dishwasher model DW 20.3 whichi s without a doubt the worst dishwasher I have ever had. The low water usage is the only plus -- and why we bought it since we have septic. Anyhow, we have a persistant "funk" (bad, rotten smell) in the dishwasher that gets on and in all of our dishes and glasses and china... it is nauseating. I have tried everything, including all of the recommendations to (1) use a very small amount of detergent (2) get biodegradable detergent (3) use more rinse agent (4)

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

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.
