Dirty dishes the dishwasher sounds and appears to be operating normally but the dishes are not getting clean. now i've noticed dishwasher soap still in the dispenser after the washing cycle has been completed. I'm thinking maybe i have plugged water jets? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.


Plugged jets, possiblemore likely it is leftover food reminance left in the pump area. and on certain dishwashers it could be a swollen check valve, not allowing the evacuation of the used dirty water.does your soap dispenser open? ... Dishwashers

Detergent cup Help!! I put jet dry dishwasher CLEANER in my jet dry dispenser. The bottle says "don't" and "make sure no dishes are in dishwasher". How can I clean it out?

I have a 2 year old Electrolux ESL 63010 dishwasher, and it worked perfect until a few days ago, when it did not wash cleanly and the dishes came out cold. I read a few forums and it seemed to indicate the heating element. So I ordered one a fitted it, but still the water is not getting hot, or drying the dishes after the complete cycle. I have done a visual check of the PCB board, which looks clean and good. No error sounds, and it completes all programs, but with cold water and no drying. W

Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher leaves sediment on dishes (primarily glasses) after running the Autoclean cycle. We've taken it apart, cleaned spray arms, filters, float and replaced some seals, but still have problems. We use Cascade detergent and Jet-Dry (what was recommended when we bought the dishwasher). Our water temperature is 120 degrees (maximum setting we can have without having our tankless water heater modified), but this dishwasher problem was an issue with our old tank water hea

Hi there, Just moved in to a new place and loaded up this dishwasher. First set it to "normal wash", dry "off", "start". Made noises but after a couple of minutes I heard no water and think I smelled the beginning of something overheating. Think I checked to see if the water was turned on under the sink (turned all the way to the right?). Still nothing but noise. What do you think? Lorraine


Lorraine.. It sounds like the water valve under the washer is stuck or maybe partially shorted. It is a solenoid coil activated shut off valve. The coil may be overheating, and valve not opening.. so motor is running dry. \012If you want to ta ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

My son and daughter in law bought a new home with all ge appliances and the dishwasher is americana. the dishwasher from the start has never worked properly. the water is cold and the drying cycle doesn't heat up. also, it doesn't drain completely. I think that this dishwasher should be repaired or replaced free of charge.


I agree, especially if it is less than 1 year old. See if the builder of the house will make arrangements for repair or replacement under his guarantee. If not then try the store or company that supplied the dishwasher. If the appliance was registe ... Maytag Dishwasher

I have a bosch millennium series SHU9905UC. There is still water at the bottom of the dishwasher from the last time it was run. I think it may not have completed the cycle as a few bowls were still dirty. Now when I try to put the washer on and press a cycle, no light is coming on at all. It seems dead. Is there anything I can try before calling in service people?

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

My Bosch dishwasher has been failing to clean my dishes for over a month now.
