Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or


I would say the resettable thermostat has failed. There is a thermostat which senses the water temperature, and when it fails, it causes the dishwasher to run constant. Replace the thermostat underneath the dishwasher and that should cure problem. P ... Frigidaire 24 in. FDBB540 Built-in Dishwasher

Soap has collected and hardened inside dishwasher and comes off and flakes on the dishes. I have tried cleaning with a few cycles of 1 cup vinegar (no dishes) and making sure the water is the hottest. I also tried Dishwasher Magic which did not help at all. Can I use Lime Away? Is that safe? Or will that poison me with the next cycle of dishes? Is there another solution? Thanks, Missi Walkyourbike

Dishwasher is not drying. At end of cycle, dishes are still wet and damp, as well as the inside. Buttons are all pushed. Also, it seems to wash for more than one cycle. Did a light wash and after 1-1/2 hrs., it was still running. Purchased a couple of months ago. Dishes don't seem to be as clean as my old dishwasher.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working? Thank you for your time.

Our moffat quiet 2 dishwasher has recently developed the problem that the dishes are not cleaned properly. It does drain water. We've opened the drain cover to check that. There does not seem to be a problem there. We've also started hearing a buzzing sound that lasts a minute or so between cycles. (Not between every cycle though) It's random. We rinse our dishes thoroughly before running a cycle. This unit is approx. 5 years old. Any suggestions?

I own a Bosch dishwasher that has operated perfectly for about ten years. The model is: SHU9915UC. Now it wont complete the cycle. The undissolved detergent is all over the dishes. After running 4 more complete cycles without any detergent the same undissolved powder detergent remains on the dishes. I have also executed a cancel/drain cycle. The filters are not clogged. I am great at repairing many tools and automotive "stuff" and don't want to call a repair facility. Please help.

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

I have a Bosch dishwasher she44c05uc/40 It is 3-4 years old. Recently I noticed that the cycle times have gotten much longer. Since then there is a sewer smell in the washer especially when starting a new cycle it comes out of the disposal. I'm wondering if the pump isn't heating the water hot enough. I've also noticed that the dishes aren't getting near as clean as they were before all this started. Especially stuck on food. It used to clean everything now dishes almost need rinsed.

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes... The cycles work but the dishes do not get clean an sometimes are more dirty if that is possible. I have tried adding jet dry and extra cleaning liquid but get no results. also there are times that the bottom of the washer fills with water unexpectedly and will even leak on to the floor. It doesn't leak when the dishwasher is running... I just don't know what to do other than clean out the spray arms. Please help.

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

I own a kitchenaid dishwasher that is only a few months old and I have this horrible smell on my dishes. I have noticed this also on our old dishwasher. What can it be? I have tried putting bleach and running a cycle but that does not seem to help. Can you tell me what it is? Should I change dishwasher soap or is it maybe my water.


I suspect your water supply is at fault. Sulfur and iron in the water will cause terrible smells. You may try using an additive like Lemi Shine with your detergent, but it will likely not help much. I would recommend having your water tested.... ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

Long cycles My dishwasher (approx 7 years old) will run in the wash cycle for hours...until I physically turn the nob to "rinse"; then it will stay in that cycle until I advance the knob to the final (expel water) stage. I checked the filter and the blades - no obstructions. Also, when completed, the dishes are hot, so I know the heating element is working.

Our Ariston LI645A dishwasher is not drying the dishes completely and whenever the cycle has finished, it always resorts back to the ECO cycle whereas we usually have it on the normal cycle? I have filled up the rinse aid but it does not seem to make a difference. The manual also says to put refined salt into the salt dispenser - i have not done that yet as was not sure exactly what 'refined' salt is and where i can get it from. thanks
