Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!

After moveing to a new house our Bosch dishwasher is not washing the powdered soap out of the holder, then bakes on a nice film of soap on all of the dishes. When the cycle is done a fairly solid ball of soap is still in the tilt-out soap holder. I have looked for obstructions and cleaned out the screens but still no luck fixing it. We think the soap holder didn't used to end in the tilted out position but we can't remember for sure.

Whirlpool adp8540 - goes throught the wash cycle without the soap door opening, the water gets into the soap box, and the powder or tablet (I've tried all the brands) are wet but remain in the soap box. When I flick the level on the soap box, works just fine, just doesn't happen during the wash cycle.


Normally, the dispenser is waterproof when closed, so the detergent should not get wet. Most likely the actuator of the dispenser works and does open the door, but something is blocking it from opening all the way. Look for stuff not it its place, ie ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

Foggy Glasses Glasses are very foggy after a wash cycle. There seems to be a heavy film on them. It can be scrubbed off with liquid soap and a brush. This started suddenly after I washed a baking pan in the dishwasher. The pan was very used and scratched before I loaded it in the dishwasher. After the wash, it was very rusty and there was rust on other dishes in the dishwasher. Could this have created some problem with the dishwasher, which is now affecting it's ability to wash? Thanks,

I lost the manual for my dishwasher. I have two questions: (1) How does Light Wash differ in its cycle from Normal Wash? It seems it should be (but isn't) shorter. (2) When using the Light Wash cycle, should I put soap only in 1 of the cups for dispensing (leaving the pre-wash cup empty)?

Dishwasher Our dishwasher is not washing the dishes.

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that's just over 1 year old and I use it a couple times a week. I turned it on last night and went in another room. appox 30 minutes later my daughter came in and noticed the soap suds all over the kitchen floor, the inside was all sudzy. It was in the wash cycle so I turned it off just by opening the door for overnight and restarted this morning and after about 20 minutes (still in the wash cycle) the suds started oozing out so I that's where I'm at now.
