I have a couple of problems. Firstly, the auto programme now shows a cycle time of 199mins but actually takes much longer than that to complete - more like 4 hours. On the quick (!) wash cycle the time is 97 minutes, whereas it should be less than 30 mins. Second problem, the detergent box flap won't stay shut when loading, so I have to put the tablet in loose in the bottom. Could the 2 problems be related?


There is an issue with the machine not heating properly, it could be the control panel or the thermostat, The flap not staying shut is not connected to this. ... Dishwashers

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle. Also, I thought the rinse aid was empty so I went to fill it and its obvious that it has not been dispensing either. Otherwise the dishwaser seems to work ok, but we have hard water & I've tried everything and still have residue on dishes.

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

The machine works fine, but about one out of every 4 or 5 times it is run, the detergent remains in the dispenser. The dispenser door has opened and the detergent is hard packed from having gotten wet. It seems like whatever is supposed to cause the detergent to be flushed out of the dispenser is not happening. Am I loading the dishwaher is such a way that the detergent is not getting out?

I have a Kenmore front load washer, model 970-C4909700, the problem is that, despite reducing the amount of the detergent (high efficiency), to the point that the laundry is not clean washed clothes smell with detergent, we happen to have a very sensitive sense of smell, probably other people would not detect anything. This means, however that there is still a lot of detergent left. For this reason, after each wash I have to do an extra rinse or even a wash without detergent. I have seen tha

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

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 have a Bosch SHY66 dishwasher. The detergent cup will not open. The rinse injector stoped working a long time ago. I removed the outer door and the mechanism for the detergent cup and rinse injector is exposed. I see a clear fluid inside.

The opening of this dispenser is controlled by a wax motor for release. If you are unable to keep the latch shut you are probably looking at the spring and latch assy. This is not a hard job, but you have to open the inner door to get at the latch. ... Magic Chef CDB6100 Built-in Dishwasher
