PROBLEM! Hello, When we turn on the dishwasher and set it to any setting it beeps once, appears to work, then beeps again, and the first light flashes. Then the inside noises stop and the light continues to flash until it is turned off. We have cleaned the filter, and added salt, but this has not affected it at all. Please help! Thank you.

TV static I just installed a new dishwasher. When it is running, it causes static lines on the TV. Prior to the new dish washer, I did not have this problem. It is wired correctley, and not on the same circuit. As I stated I did not have this problem until the new dishwasher. I called the service people for the dishwasher, and they stated they could not help me. Have you got any ideas, or do they make some type of filter I can put on the line to the TV.

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

We have a LG direct drive dishwasher (LDF7932ST) that doesn't seem to clean very well. It leaves dried on food bits and a white film on everything especially the cups and mugs. Even on the power scrub cycle with an extra rinse. If the problem is the recirculating pump how do you remove the arm or bottom filter to clean out? I can't seem to locate the instruction book.

We have a Miele G863SCVI Plus. We have a problem with the Inlet/Drain light staying on. Originally, if we turned the dishwasher off and then on again it would work. Now it won't. I have cleaned the filter out but wonder if there is something else that needs cleaning. I have never had a manual and cannot download it from the websites that say they have it. I would really appreciate it if you can help me

My Miele dishwasher is about 16 months old. Initially it was awesome. Now it doesn't get anything truly clean on any rack. Every item has scum and traces of food or drink left on it. I've cleaned the filter and the no-return valve, and refilled the salt (yes, I used the right one) and rinse aid. The manual has no other instructions to remedy dirty dishes. The water is hot, and the machine seems to be running just fine. Where should I look for a problem?


The other possible problem is that the spray arms have small bits of food (sesame seeds are nasty!) stuck in the holes. Take the arms off and flush them out. You might need to poke out seeds that are stuck in the holes. ... Miele G880 Dishwasher

I have a Bosch "Classic Electronic" dishwasher that has been in use for only 18 months. If it helps - SGU53E05AU/30 is marked on top of the door.. my problem is that on the last cycle, the water won't drain so I am left with lovely clean dishes but there is water up to the drawer line present and it won't drain until the next wash. I have cleaned all the filters and ensured the pipes are not obstructed. It is odd that it only does it on the last cycle. Could it be the microchip?

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean.

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?

I have an Indesit IDL 42 dishwasher. It has entered a state in which it behaves like this: as soon as I turn it on, it starts swishing the water around (it doesn't pump it out) and it does that regardless of whether I press any buttons (I have tried Start, Reset, turning the program knob, no difference at all). When I open it in the middle of this cycle, the water drips, and there is plenty of water (about 1 in) at the bottom. I have checked the filter, it is clean. Can you please help?
