My zanussi zdf131 has not caused any problems during the last year or so since i purcheased it, but now all the dishes etc come out with a "bloom" of white over everything. I've checked all filters etc, run several cleaning programmes but I've now noticed that the salt level does not seem to be going down. I check it every week & refil but this time the salt has been in the reservoir for several weeks & doesn't seem to have changed - could this cause the problem & if so why is the salt level not

Like so many others, I am experiencing a problem with my GE dishwasher's smartdispense. I have ALWAYS used the SAME detergent(Cascade Complete)and still have the gumming-up issue. I noticed that the dishes were not getting clean and when I opened the smartdispense cover I could see that the detergent was gelled. Spent the better part of 2 hours trying to remove as much gunk out of the dispenser as I could with the help of a plumbers flexible plastic drain cleaning tool. This really angers me as

I have an older hotpoint americana dishwasher. It is not cleaning the dishes well and in fact have to wash them first before using the dishwasher. Have checked the drain to make sure there are no clogs and found none. Doesn't have a drain problem, just doesn't seem to actually clean well. Any suggestion as to what the problem could be?

The start timer control cycles but nothing happens. The motor seems to gurgle while attempting to fill with water - but no water comes through. We have had this problem before and the repair person replaced the timer control board. Could this be the same problem reoccuring? I have also tapped and cleaned the water float as described by GE website.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any clogs there. It seems to be making a little bit of a different noise but does still clean the dishes. Does the motor pump the water out and could that be the problem?

I am trying to clean my block paving using my pressure washer Karcher 3.99, which I used successfully last summer, however, it is not cleaning well. I have used the high power nozzle but the power seems inefficient to get the dirt out of the paving. Please can you advvise what you think the problem may be. Many thanks. Sue Thompson

Bci450 My dishwasher has been always giving me lots of trouble. It is the BCI450 model from hotpoint. Whenever it reaches the washing stage for steam, it seems to beep alot. Many times they replaced the Circuit board but this problem comes back after 2 months. What could be the reason this is caused? Today they replaced the rubber thinking that water vapour might be reaching the circuit. I got this repaired about 7 times already and each time they replaced the circuit board.

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

Our whirpool dishwasher seems to be cleaning the dishes here and there, missing some. The top shelf of the dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning at all. Also the soap dispenser does not seem to be quite empty of soap when the cleaning cycle is done. It is running fine. Could it have something to do with the panel where all the buttons are? Could the sequence be off or something? Thank you Awaiting your reply

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

My dishwasher is almost brand new and it doesn't do a very good job at cleaning the dishes. There are usually stuff stuck on the glasses on the top shelf. I've tried cleaning it by taking all of the stuff out of the centre but it doesn't seem to help. I've also tried changing to the vinegar jet dry and that seemed to help but I'm still having the problem. I thought that maybe it was just a cheap dishwasher but I'm told that it is actually a decent brand.

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door
