Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Frigidair model FDB520rHB2 Bought this brand new dishwasher and had it professionally installed. The unit seems to cycle fine, but after it's done, there is always a pile of detergent on the machine floor from where it dropped out of the dispenser. Plus the dishes are somewhat clean, but not all the way. I've tried all the trouble shooting that I could come across, but nothing seems to work. We have tried liquid, tablet and powder detergent with all the same results. Any ideas? Thanks

My new bosch dishwasher doesen't clean the top rack of glasses, ran it 3 times, no difference. also the soap dispenser opens up but the powdered detergent won't dissolve, the same soap has been in the dispenser for 3 cycles. i turned up the water heater temp to try to fix the problem it seems to have no effect. the dishwasher is 2 weeks old. could my water supply line be too small or are they a stndard size. thanks

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!


Welcome to FixYa,Based on your description... I`d suspect a plugged or really dirty wash pump. It could ultimately be a worn out wash impeller/chopper assembly, but I'd certainly try my suggestions before considering that. ... Whirlpool 24 in. DU1100XTP Built-in Dishwasher

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

The bottom spray arm screw seems to be stripped and just turns , so I'm having trouble removing it. This is the first time I've tried removing it. It is at least 5 years old, but the dishsoap dispenser didn't open this time so I figured it would need cleaning. What do I try now? What will happen if I can't tighten the screw back up. I've tried and it slips. Help Please.

My Inglis dishwasher (E71195), 13 years old, doesn't clean properly. There is a film on everything that is especially noticable on glassware.

Powdery residue on some dishes, will not wash off. Repairman said it was due to warter temp, but have tries heat & Anti bacteria and still persists. Could it be chemical build up because I was using a no phosphate detergent(Finish)? Repairman also suggested I use Citric acid to clean dishwasher tub and element. Could this just be hard water?

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?


... Kenwood Dishwashers

The top rack isn't getting clean. Is it needing something cleaned out, or is something not sealing and taking the water pressure up to the top rack? How do I trouble shoot this. I already tried running an empty load with white vinegar...


Good evening. The white vinegar was a good start. It may not have helped the problem described, but will help clean out the lower end of the unit. Look for plugged nozzles and slots on the arms. Remove the arms and wash backwards through th ... Maytag 24 in. MDB6601AWS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.
