Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

After a load of dishes goes through a complete cycle they are not very clean and they are all covered in a white, hard residue. we have tried running lime away through it also we have tried three types of dishwashing datergants and rinse. our water goes through a watersoftener and two filters. i'm guessing it has to do with a blockage some where but obviously I don't know. please help


Answers :

The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
\012Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Smeg diswasher model numbe4r DF612SDX. Just coming up for two years old, various codes re error messages. E2, E5, E8. We have taken off the front panel where the buttons are - nothing obvious. We have taken the bottom off and tried to locate a reset button, but can't find one. We have cleared all the filters inside and checked the water intake and the filter there. Out of ideas, can anybody else suggest what we can try?

My dishwasher (Optima G2420) had an error F13 for sometime. By turning it off and restarding it would work. But now drain/intake light flashes and nothing is happening.

I've tried tipping it to 45 degrees to see if there is any water in the innards but non water came out. I have no idea what to look for - and no manual to help me get inside the beast!
