Does it fill? You should be able to hear it fill and then see water in the bottom of the tub when you open the door. If it is not filling it is one thing, if it is not spraying it is another issue. Let me know

GE Dish Washer GSD 2800 DO3 runs a partial cycle...(even empty) and then beep and gives a message on control panel "washer arm blocked". Even ran without dish rack in washer still got the message. Push reset button and washer starts back runs a couple minutes and then stops and then beep and gives the same message on control panel "washer arm blocked" again. There is "NOTHING BLOCKING" the washer arm!
The rotating arm has a magnet in it to let the controls know if it is turning. Yours is not turning so \012\012\012\012check the jets for blockages... you might have to remove the arm to clean them properly ... Dishwashers
My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the
First of all, don't pre-rinse the dishes. Check the water temperature, it should be between 120 and 140 degrees. Be sure you are not partially blocking the dispenser door so that it isn't opening. ... Asko D1976 Built-in Dishwasher

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product. We got all the soap out of the hole and took towels to dry out the tub, but F1 comes on even when the washer is turned off. We have the double tall dish drawer in stainless steel. Even though they did not put anything in the bottom drawer it too comes on by it self and shows F1. I can not find our manual. Please help. Thank you so much. Kim Toth

I have whirlpool Dish washer model GU 120 ES (bought in 2001). When we start the dish washer cycle the unit starts for a minute, then the "start indicator" light flashes. As indicated in the instructions, we press the "start button" for five (5) seconds, at this time the washer clears the water out and stops. If you can assist this would be greatly appreciated.

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

We have been using this model since Sept. 2007.When new, it worked very well. It has over time, performed less then we would expect. Not only do we have to scrub dishes by hand before placing them into washer,they some times require hand washing after being washed by machine. Not only are they dirty, the glasses are covered with a cloudy white film. We have not done any maintenance or service to this dish washer. Does this washer require some sort of service or attention. Please advise. Thanks

Dish Washer we are having a problem with like a chalky residue left on things after the dish washer has finished. we are using 5 in 1 tablets with no rinse aid but salt as we are in a hard water area and this is what the manifacture of the tablets recommended. the mashine seems to be working ok and we have taken it to bits and cleaned it thoroughly.

I have a Bosch dish washer model SHX 43 M 0 ZUC / 48 FD 8709 00169 The dish washer is about 1 1/4 years old and was installed by a plumber as part of a Home Depot kitchen remodel. The problem is draining. The quick wash does not drain at the end of the wash. The regular wash sometimes drain and sometimes does not. The auto wash does drain. The lack of draining does not cause problems with the regular wash cycle. I checked the drain hose re the instruction manual and it is correctly installed.

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out. The intake/drain light starts blinking mid way into the dishwashing process. The dish washer fills up, rinses, drains, water is hot, everything seems to function just fine. Some time after the tablet drops from its door mounted container, and the time estimate reaches 46 minutes r
Dishes are still dirty. I have used every kind of dishwasher aide, half loaded it and dishes are still dirty, I let the water run until very hot before starting the washer. The washer says you don't have to rinse but I do and they still come out dirty. Also black nasty stuff comes up from my garbage disposer.

Frigidaire built in dishwasher model PLD2855RFC1. Have to wash dishes pretty much spotless prior to using dishwaser. Glasses come out with what appears to be soap residue regardless if powder or liquid. Did not use a gauge but water pressure in rest of house is good, recently replaced water heater, pressure regulator and just replaced the dish washer water source valve. Washer is about 18 months old, has never worked really well.
