... Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Dirty dishes We have a built-in SMEG machine and it washes 75% of the dishes perfectly. However there is a build up of sandy'ish residue round the inside of the door (mostly on the ledge at the top) at the end of each wash and some of that sticks to the inside of glasses, cups and mugs. Have checked all the filters we can see and they are clean.

Whirlpool adp8540 - goes throught the wash cycle without the soap door opening, the water gets into the soap box, and the powder or tablet (I've tried all the brands) are wet but remain in the soap box. When I flick the level on the soap box, works just fine, just doesn't happen during the wash cycle.

We recently installed a Kenmore dishwasher, Mfr Model# 13943. We have used the dishwasher approximately six times since Thanksgiving. Each time, after the wash cycle is complete, when we open the door, water has collected on the interior of the door, and water remains standing on some of the washed dishes. Is this normal?

I am a licensed plumber who installed a frigidaire fdb1o5rem1 dishwasher for a customer about 2 years ago. It has water to the solenoid valve and the screen is clean. I can see water coming in to the unit on left side through the port hole on the inside of the unit. Dishes do not get clean and it doesnt act like water is being distrubuted inside the dishwasher.

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or

... Dishwashers

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for
