Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Dishes don't get very clean. Especially anything oily or greasy. I don't think the water hot enough or the pressure isn't good. House water pressure is fine. Using gel soap.

If they have a residue or spots the problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all.

Ok, in my personal working on unit I find that gel soap is not good for dishwashers, Run you sink hot before starting the cycle and go to your local walmart they sell a product call lemi-shine start you unit and let it fill and wash when the unit stops in the first cyc restart the unit rapidly without letting the lemi-shine get drained out and do this repeatedly until the whiteish film is all gone then also inspect the hole opening on your spray arms they will also be plugged with soap us caution when poking something in them to open the holes up all this can be done while the lemi-shine is in the tub once this is all done get a powder dish soap and don't fill each of the dispenser full 1/4 should be ok depending of the oily dishware. If this is more than something you would like to do service maybe required.

My kenmore 665.1384 is not cleaning well. There seems to be not enough water coming through as soap remains in the cup after it completes. It is not a new installation, water is hot and pressure is good and it does drain properly,

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

It appears that the dishwasher is not getting enough water. I have made sure that there is nothing blocking the door area so that the soap can dispense and I have reduced the amount of detergent to maybe a 1/2 Tablespoon. Have tried both powder and liquid detergents. Ran a sani clean cycle with the Jet Dry product for dishwasher used in the rural. I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

Lately the soap remains in the dispenser, dried and caked in (I have to dig it out with a sharp object, as it becomes a solid piece). I have also tried gel soaps, but find them in the bottom of the dishwasher, partially intact. The mistery is this does not happen all the time, but most of the time! I've checked the water pressure and the water temperature: both seem to be fine. The dishwasher does run a full cycle. Is it time to buy a new one? Would you also be able to tell me what year this mod

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

I have a model du1145XTPQ dishwasher. I doesn't seem to fill with enough water so I have to add with every cycle. The repairman says that there is no filter and my water pressure wasn't high enough.
