Having problems with your Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Not washing well

\015 Over the past few months, our dishwasher has not been cleaning well.It is aprox 3 yrs old. I use cascade detergent, a rinse aide and ultimate scrub cycle. I also pre-rinse everything. The dishes come out w/soap residue, dried on food particles and water spots. I end up handwashing about half of what comes out. Some dishes look worse than when I put them in. We are ready to toss it. Help please!!!!\015

Hi
\015\012
\015\012First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
\015\012
\015\012Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
\015\012
\015\012To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
\015\012For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks
\015\012
\015\012Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

\015\012Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

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 Bosh dishwasher now runs well past the 105 minutes as stated in the manual, over three hours before I intervene. It gets stuck on the wash mode, it wont drain or rinse, just runs and runs in the wash mode (I know it's in the wash mode because when I open it up, theres suds inside). It will do the wash mode until I reset the wash mode to "Rinse & Hold". I appreciate whatever information you could provide.

My Kenmore ULTRA WASH dishwasher model #1603* does not respond to any command. When I select a desired washing I only get a blinking light on my selection and nothing else. If I select ''Cancel/Drain'' it blinks as well. I receive no response at all if I select ''Start/Resume''. To stop the blinking I must turn off the circuit breaker. When I restore the power, the control board is not lit, however, selecting any of the wash cycles and the blinking starts once again. The manual refers to a blink

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

Hi experts - My dishwasher won't drain properly. There's several inches of standing water in the bottom of the unit. During the drain phases of the wash, the motor underneath doesn't spin and a buzzing is coming out of the motor relay. During the wash and rinse phases, the motor runs fine and all appears well.

My Kenmore Elite dishwasher doesn't wash dishes properly. I think that it is not getting enough water in the machine. It only allows about an inch of water to get into machine and then starts.

I have a GE Profile, GSD4930X73WW, dishwasher. The upper wash arm is not spraying well at all. I checked the water line from the pump to the upper arm and it's fine. I cleared the filters and cleaned the float. I also took the inlet valve off and cleaned the screen. Although the washer works better overall, the upper arm still does not work well. Nothing appears to be in the upper arm assy to clog water from spraying out. All seems clear from the turbid sensor (next to the pump) through t
