Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a brand new GE Profile Dishwasher model PDW9280N20SS . I clean most of the food off and lightly scrub the dishes. But any left on food is generally still there after the wash cycle. In addition, there is a light coating of some sort. I use Cascade and jet dry but am not very happy with the results thus far. Any thoughts??


Answers :

Detergent sticks in main wash compartment. We use cascade complete with bleach (hydroclean action). When this problem started, I switched to cascade complete (liquid) and still same thing happens. The dishwasher is only 3 1/2 yrs old. Have used cascade complete since day one. Only difference is that this one is the one with the bleach. Could this be the prob? We have noticed that it is thicker that just the cascade complete. But thought the liquid would of fixed that prob. Agh frustrated. We hav

Most plastic ware like plastic glasses and some of the other dishes but not all come out with a hard to remove white coating no matter how much rinse agent I use. I use Cascade Complete powder for soap and Cascade Crystal Clear rinse agent what Bosch recommends the exact amount according to the owners manual. This problem started about a month ago, before that the machine worked well.

Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

Model GU2700XTS81 purchased a few months ago. Dishes come out with chalky white film on them. I am currently using Palmolive Eco liquid and Cascade Crystal clear rinse. At first I thought I might be using too much detergent so I cut it almost in half with the same results. I don't think it's the water because I never had this problem before. I use adaptive or normal wash and Heated dry. Please advise

Got a Frigidaire model FDB750RCS0. Now it was running for a couple of min then I hear a clicking sound. Thought it might be something hitting the propeller. I opened the door and nothing. Closed it and now it wont even work. Thought the breaker got tripped but not even that. Now when I had it set back to the cancel part, the Clean Light comes on very dim where as before it use to be bright. Any solutions?

My glasses are covered in small grainy specs after the wash cycle. THey wash off easily, but that's not good, regardless. I used econo setting & thought changing to regular wash would help, but it didn't. I use Cascade with Dawn (lemon scent, which I purchased by mistake after hearing lemon might damage silver) and a rinse aid. Help. Oh, the model is SHU66C05UC/43, and the machine is maybe three years old. Thanks. Riffi OBrien

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas? We thought it might be the soap we are using which is the liquid variety. We always in the past have used powdered cascade. However, I believe the problem is other than the soap issue.

First we had drain issue with Bosch Integra® 500 SHX55M05UC Built-in Dishwasher ECO cycle. It stopped after a while. I thought it may be because last cycle might not be finished well. When we ran again ECO cycle with no drain issues but cycle did not finished as it used to be. I am sure because cycle countdown were not zero and because infra red light was off which is sing of complete cycle.

Whirlpool dishwasher This dishwasher quit in the middle of a wash cycle,we had to empty it and wash by hand. I thought that maybe the breaker to the dishwasher popped but when checked it had not .I then noticed that there are no lights on the electronic key board .Even when not in use there should be one red LED that is lit. It almost seems as if there is no power to the dishwasher. Is there some type of backup safety switch or breaker on the dishwasher itself that I could reset?

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks

I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n
