My dishwasher is leaving soap residue on the dishes. I'm the second user of this dishwasher and it looks like the previous users have clogged the rinse-aid dispenser. It will only hold about a table spoon of Rinse aid. Is that normal or is there a way I can de-clog the rinse aid so I can have soap free dishes?

I have a 4yr old Smeg freestanding dishwasher. Model is DF612SDX. The problem is that a wash cycle will start but about 15 mins in it stops and 2 of the programme option lights (on the left hand side of the programme options), start flashing. If you open the machine the soap dispenser has failed to open. This problem has been a bit of a slow deterioration as we've had a number of washed that have managed to finish and then noticed that although the dispenser has opened it must have been to

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

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?

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself.

Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

Soap gets stuck inside the soap dispenser, so that at the end of the cycle, there is a clump of soap still in the dispenser. We have also noticed that the rubber seals at the back of the dishwasher (the ones that the spin arms plug in to) are getting worn. Will get new gaskets this week, but wondered if the soap dispenser isn't another problem.
