Electrolux ESL6115 integrated dishwasher - for the last few months the tablet (i have tried every brand available with no difference) gets stuck inside the tablet dispenser and then does not dissolve correctly so my dishes remain dirty. the spring does click to release, if you put the tablet in the bottom or wait for the click and then manually flick it out of the dispenser it cleans fine. the inside of the dispenser is wet, drying it makes no difference, i think that the seal may have gone arou

Frigidair model FDB520rHB2 Bought this brand new dishwasher and had it professionally installed. The unit seems to cycle fine, but after it's done, there is always a pile of detergent on the machine floor from where it dropped out of the dispenser. Plus the dishes are somewhat clean, but not all the way. I've tried all the trouble shooting that I could come across, but nothing seems to work. We have tried liquid, tablet and powder detergent with all the same results. Any ideas? Thanks

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove.

I have a Candy CD650 dishwasher which is not washing properly. Basically, the detergent tablets seem to be getting stuck in the tray. Most times I open the door, the tablet is a pile of mush inside the tray. Other times it is on the bottom of the dishwasher - again a pile of mush! Sometimes, it starts the program & sounds like it's about to start a wash cycle, but then gives up! it gives one short woosh, the stops again. Any ideas how to fix this? I don't have a manual so can't look there.
