Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

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

After running a cycle, there is some water in the tub and the soap dispenser is open but the soap has only run down the inside of the door. It does not sound like there is a vigorous spray during the wash cycle. Opening the door during the wash cycle reveals only a little water reaching the upper arm.

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

Our Whirlpool ADP5966 is not washing properly: the dishes do not come out clean and the soap mainly stays in the dispenser although it opens normally. The quick wash cycle is hopeless now and the longer ones still not good. We have cleaned filters, soap dispenser etc but still the soap stays in dispenser often turning into a concrete like block.

I have a 4yr old Smeg freestanding dishwasher. Model is DF612SDX. The problem is that a wash cycle will start but about 15 mins in it stops and 2 of the programme option lights (on the left hand side of the programme options), start flashing. If you open the machine the soap dispenser has failed to open. This problem has been a bit of a slow deterioration as we've had a number of washed that have managed to finish and then noticed that although the dispenser has opened it must have been to

Kenmore dishwasher My Kenmore dishwasher model 630.16302401 is not successfully completing wash cycle. When I hit "normal" and turn it on, water enters the d/w, and the sprayers (both top and bottom), spray water. Approx. 10 mins. later, the water is drained. At that point, it appears that water never again enters the d/w to complete the wash cycle. In fact, the soap in the dispenser does get released, and the door opens. However, the soap will just run down the inside of the door and pool on th

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

My Bosh Model# SHE4AM02UC/01 Is not cycling. Started with the soap dispenser not opening, progressed to the drain pump not staying on. When you turn it on, the pump runs for 2 seconds. water solenoid opens for another two seconds, and then the "clean" light comes on. If I go to quick wash, or to pot scrubber it might do a regular cycle. I did pull the pump to remove a piece of glass before this all started, but can't imagine that would be the cause.
