I have had my Bosch dishwasher for about 2 years. Over the last 8 months or so my dishes come out with a white film over them. I do have hard water, but have had it for over 20 years without a problem like this. The white film is all over dishes, silverware and the inside of the stainless steel washer. I use a rinse agent and have tried many detergents. I have used vinegar to clean the inside. What can this be?

Hi I have a Zanussi ZDF501 dishwasher that stopped heating up intermittently. It got worse and I fitted a new heater and all was ok for a few months. Then the intermittent failure started again. Note that I tested the old heater and it is actually OK without a short circuit so I don't think it was the problem adn can be re-used. Could it be the thermostat or heat sensor? I am concerned it might be the PCB since the failure was intermittent. Thanks Dave


In my case, although the solder joints on the relay looked poor, improving them didn't help. I had to replace the relay. Fortunately, Maplin stock a compatible one, JM67X for 1.99. See ... Zanussi Dishwashers

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about

Water won't drain from bottom of dishwasher. I pulled the dishwasher out, blew through the drain tube, disconnected the drain tube and felt around inside. Ok there. The dishwasher has not been in use for 4 months, due to low hot water flow. I replaced a clogged valve today and restored water flow, and I'm wondering if non-use causes a problem with dishwashers?


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your DW.Actually, yes. Not using a dishwasher for a while can damage some parts. Sediment from water damages the water valve. Food residues clogs the drain and drain pump. More likely the ... Dishwashers

We have a model # 1385 Asko dishwasher. For the last few months we have found a film over all our dishes and pans washed in the dishwasher. We have found vinegar removes the film, but the need to constantly wash the already-washed dishes in vinegar to be defeating the purpose of using the dishwasher! We have used Cascade Complete for years, but we have tried different brands now, but nothing solves the problem. Can you please help us??????? Nancy Vocci

My mother has cancer so needs me to research her problem with her dishwasher. My mother's sink drain water is emptying into the dishwasher. It has to be manually removed since she does not cook much and therefore no longer uses the dishwasher as much as she used to. Is there anything I can do without calling a repair man or plumber? And if I must call a repair man, which should I call, a Maytag repair man or a plumber?

I have a Delonghi DW67S dishwasher which I have been using for about 2 months now. It has been 3 washes now that the dispenser hasn't opened while washing leaving the detergent still in the dispenser. I have replaced the detergent with a new one from a different batch but the same problem. I have also chosen a different washing cycle to see if it was that particular cycle I was using but still the same problem.

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric

KUDS30 leaking my kitchenaid dishwasher (about 1 1/2 years old) had a leak bottom left side and had gasket replaced. It worked well for approx another 6-9 months without any leaks and now the same problem is back. The dishwasher isn't overloaded. A repair person came last week and ran the dishwasher empty and it didn't leak when she was here. The 2 loads after continue to leak approx 2 cups of water each cycle.

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.

My Maytag dishwasher is 9 years old-- Model number MDB7100AWW, serial number 27754072ZQ It has worked fine until about a month ago, when I began noticing a kind of "scum" on the silverware and some of the dishes after completing a wash cycle. The top rack will squeak and have some resistance when pulled out, whereas before it always came out smoothly. I have always used powdered Cascade. I've tried using less, thinking I might be putting too much in. Then I got a rinse agent. These thin

About a month ago, our dishwasher stopped working properly. It runs fine and the soap is being used, but the dishes are not being cleaned and especially on the top rack. I opened the dishwasher this morning while it was running and I noticed that the coil on the bottom was red (maybe heating water) but only about 1/16th of it. Could this be the problem?

Blanco BFDW6 dishwasher drains and sounds like it is going to start but stops after 2-3 seconds. Yesterday it was playing up and made a fairly small puddle on the floor. Electrics seem to have been a problem from early on as after a few months it would let me open it during the beginning of the cycle to add items without needing to restart program. I am not sure if problem is electric (may need a reset?) or due to anti-flood feature.
