We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

Hi I have a Blanco dishwasher BFDw8 which is having poor wash results in the top tray I have tried all the trouble shooting things in manual. Investigated further by opening door during wash cycle several times and discovered the top arm is not moving although water is still coming out of the arms. I did get a split pea particle out of the arm approx 2mm and have since had a mildly better wash and have used superior wash powder and rinse aid to try and help. Also have put a cleaner through di

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?

The water is not getting up to the middle spin bar or the top one, so nothing on the top rack is getting cleaned and everything is left with soapy film, so it is not rinsing properly. There is water coming in at the side for the intial fill and from the bottom to wash.

Our 2470scvi has caused all of our glassware to turn white. we use very little soap and we always use rinse aid. It seems to me that it is not rinsing properly.

I have a Precision Wash System Ultra Quiet I, model # FBD421RFR3 and something is not rinsing properly. There's a fine white powder on the dishes after the cycle. I tasted it and it doesn't exactly taste like soap (though I have tasted the soap from the box yet to compare). Some people say things about dishwasher salt or cleaning filters or the top arm not swinging. I'm a renter so I don't have the manual.

The top tray of our Indesit DI620 isn't washing properly. I suspect that the spray arm isn't squirting water, it isn't impeded by badly stacked crockery.

During wash cycle it gets stuck and won't move past the wash cycle. On a regular wash it is at 28minutes and when it is on a fast wash it is at 25 minutes. If I stop it and turn on the rinse cycle it will run through the 12minute rinse cycle with no problems. It is only the top dishwasher that does this, the bottom one is running just fine.

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.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

When I started it, it made a loud grinding sound which continued whenever it was actually washing/rinsing. It was washing and rinsing the dishes ok. Eventually I didn't hear anymore grinding but the dishes had not been washed or rinsed. The detergent cup was open and the detergent spilled down the door. I ran it again and could hear the pump running. It ran through the cycles but the water was not being circulated. I suspect that something is caught in the disposer blade or something and is bloc
