Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

How can i use the liquid soap inside the dishwasher


Answers :

Just fill the same holder that you would use for powder.
Normally you cannot use liquid dishwashing detergents in Dishwashers. The detergent must be dropped into the dishwasher at a particular time in the wash cycle. This is usually done by opening of a door latch that is holding the powder detergent inside the dispenser or by having the inlet water pass through the detergent compartment at the precise wash time. Moreover, liquid dishwashing detergents will also create a lot of suds which can interfere with the dishwasher operation.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water.

I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent
