Having problems with your Electrolux Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher ?

We have had the dishwasher for about 1 year. It has worked fine up until a month or so ago. I use liquid detergent and after I wash a load of dishes, the liquid soap is all over the botton of the dishwasher, around the dispenser door and all over the dishes loaded above the soap door. Do you have any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you.

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas?

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

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?

I purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher in either July or August 2009 from Best Buy. It is not cleaning all my dishes. I have tried 3 different types of soap--the packets that came with it; powder; and liquid hoping that it would work. I have loaded light and heavy. I have tried the normal and light settings with rinse, hot water or not. They are just not getting clean. And the dispensers are not totally emptying. I already had to have a new dishwasher sent because the first one was damaged on

We have had our dishwasher for quite a few years, and all of a sudden (within the past month), it has been leaving a gritty white powder on the dishes. We tried other soaps, and putting less soap in. We even tried putting rinse aid liquid in (which we've never had to use before), but it is still leaving the grit. What can we do to fix it? It is a Roper RU4300DQ3.

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

I have a jenn aire jdb1100aws dishwasher that starts but will not wash. It starts, runs quietly but you can hear that the arms are not turning/washing.

Yesterday I did open it while it was running to grab something and that's when we noticed it didn't wash after that cycle. I ran it again but it didn't wash the dishes.


It is very likely the motor is faulty. This dishwasher uses a wash motor and pump for the wash and a separate drain pump for the drain cycle.\015\012\015\012Unless you can specifically confirm if the drain cycle is not working and the wat ... Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1100AWS Built-in Dishwasher
