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

The dishes come out dirtier after they're "washed"! The soap leaves a filmy residue and I have to re-wash all the dishes. I've tried liquid Cascade, the Finish tablets, and putting Jet Dry rinse aid in the allotted spot. Help!

I just installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU1301XTV) and have run three loads. Each time, the glasses, silverware, and plastic, come out with white, chalky residue. There are also water spots. I have tried it with both Cascade detergent, and with a Quantum Finish tablet. I have also filled the reservoir with Jet Dry. Do I have a defective dishwasher? Do I have a clogged line?

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

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

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time. Sometimes about 40 percent of the time, when we open the main door after it is finished with a normal cycle, we find a big clump of detergent left in the main detergent compartment and the detergent door is open. It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove.

It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and
