Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My wife filled the dishwasher with regular dawn detergent instead of the jet dry stuff. How can I get this soap out of the system? She said she put quite a bit in and only realized what she had done after she was done. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Dominic


Answers :

Can you easily hook up the hot water supply to the unit to a cold water supply? if so it will purge the system faster,but if not,just keep running the unit without soap till its purged of soap and no suds left

F2 Code Hey, I have a single drawer built in Fisher & Paykel dish drawer and today I pulled the spray arm, filter and large metal screen out to clean them as we have been starting to get a bit of stuff left behind after washing lately. That was all good After putting it all back in though I went to use the dishwasher and it stopped and came up with an F2 fault, I thought I may not have put the bits back in properly so pulled them out again and noticed that on the rotor that connects the motor to


Fault F2 means the rotor is not rotating. If you say some of the vanes have broken off, they could have been jamming it. This should spin freely with minimal force when installed correctly.

The rotating arm at the bottom of my LG intello dishwasher keeps falling off. It is the stainless bit that sits ontop of the rotating bit at the bottom of the machine. A bit like a boomerang shape and is seperate from the arm at the bottom. I am not sure if it just needs a washer put on it. I did try this but it just falls off all the time. It has 4 little grips on the bottom but just wont stay on the arm? Has something come off or worn away for it not to stay on. It just swivels round an

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.

I bought a house with a Bosch dishwasher in it and soon found that the top spinner holes are blocked with bits of old labels. I have removed the spinner and separated the concentric tubes but I do not see how to push the debris back along to the inlet. Do I need a power but very small jet to put into the holes along the arm? Would drying it then putting the suction of a vacuum over the inlet hole be useful?


This is very common if the filters are not cleaned regulary if you remove the arms and soak them in hot soapy water for around half an hour this should loosen the debris also tap them on the side of the sink this will remove more stubborn debris ,ref ... Bosch Dishwashers

Maytag My Maytag dishwasher is leaking from the bottom. It is a mdbh940aww. it was never used before. It was wrapped in the plastic wrap when I bought the house in 2005. Now the old one just went and I want to put this one in. It fit nicely, works great but leaks all over the floor. It is level and I check most of the parts. I put a mirror underneath and it looks like the rubber thing isnt looking too good. Do I replace this? If so how?

We have had our dishwasher for quite a few years, and all of a sudden (within the past month), it has been leaving a gritty white powder on the dishes. We tried other soaps, and putting less soap in. We even tried putting rinse aid liquid in (which we've never had to use before), but it is still leaving the grit. What can we do to fix it? It is a Roper RU4300DQ3.

There is water in the bottom of dish washer after finishing. If I start another cycle, everything drains, so it's not a problem with the hose. I hear water draining. I think it is the drain time. When the machine was under warranty, the service guy came and changed the drain time to longer. He told me how to do it, via the buttons, but have now forgotten where I put such great information. I have a 1996 built in model.
