Hi I have a Kelvinator KD12ww/mm dishwasher. I have noticed that my glasses and other plates often do not get cleaned properly. I do use the setting for glasses etc. I also tried to add salt once in a while and after every wash I clean the filters. I tried to drain the water etc and have no other solution. The dishwasher is just over a year old. Any other ideas would be appreciated. Thank you Natascha

After running our dishes through a wash cycle we noticed there was still a lot of food stuck on the plates & glasses etc. We cleaned out the trap but due to the murky water in the well, we also pulled out the racks & removed the bottom plate. The underside was greasy and had a lot of grim stuck to it as well as the bottom of the drawer itself. We washed the filter trap, swing arm and plate in the sink. We loaded it with the dishes that previously did not come clean and ran a full cycle. The

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?

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit. The bottom drawer soap dispenser has water in it after it runs (and leftover soap), and there is a small amount of water sitting in the bottom of the drawer. The dishes don't get totally clean. I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher.

I have used my Bosch Dishwasher; [SGS6302 GB/07] [FD 7866 680062] for many years, with faultless performance. Last week, after loading it with Dinner plates, etc. I turned it ON and it declined to start, merely presenting me with an "F" on the display screen. Could find no solution in the (useless) instruction manual. So I guessed that "F" means;- a) Filter (blocked)? b) Fault condition. I've cleaned the filters, checked the power supply, water supply and drain hoses, but nothing seems to
