Once I clean it, it comes back. The dishwasher goes on once a day fully loaded. hope you can help me because its gross. Thank You !


Answers :

The first problem I believe you have is your hot water entering the unit is NOT hot enough. Turn up the temperature setting on your hot water heater. The water in your pipes should come out around 120 degrees Fahrenheit. That should be hot enough to burn your skin so use a thermometer to test. Second the internal heating coil may be burnt out or operating very low and may need to be replaced. For it to sterilize it needs to heat the inside to over 212 degrees Fahrenheit when steam is created. You should definitely make sure that the unit is drying your dishes and steam is spewing out the front exhaust vent during that cycle. Third the soap you use should be a better quality such as Cascade, or Finish. You may also try 2 TBSP of bleach during the WASH cycle. Which will also cause to sterilize.\015\012
\015\012The only reason you can be getting mold is lack of heat. If you are saying it is a recent problem then I would consider how old is the machine? And look toward the heating coil element. \015\012
\015\012If the heating coil is working, the washing unit may not be getting enough power. Make should the circuit is properly load rated so it is getting enough electricity to get it hot, hot, hot.

I have a Kenmore model 665. It is having an intermittent problem. It goes through the fill cycle, and then stops. Timer does not progress either. Then, at some random moment, it will come back on and finish the entire cycle. This could even be a day or two later. Sometimes it seems a nearby thump will set it off, other times no one is anywhere near it when it comes back on. This happened for a month or so off and on 6 months ago, and then it worked fine for 6 months. Now it's back to it.

I own the Siemans SL34A006UC dishwasher which had the recall repair completed. Now it doesn't work right. The unit goes through any of the cleaning choices but when it comes time to drain, the unit stops for a few seconds, swishes water for a couple seconds, stops again, then swishes for a couple seconds, stops and then goes back in to regular cleaning mode until the timer reaches zero. At each drain cycle, it does the same thing earlier mentioned 3 times in a row, then back to washing. The unit

In the last month I have noticed that my dishes aren't getting clean. My dishwasher is less than a year old and has done a great job so far.

I will go back to handwashing and sell the dishwasher is this is the way it is going to be cleaning. (The repair guy said nothing is wrong with it.) It is mod

Hi, We have a Frigidaire dishwasher machine 1500 series with fully electronic control. It is a new unit, has been installed nearly 4 months ago. The other day, when I went to take the dishes out of it, I notice that the rubber gasket that seals the door had come off somehow. Along with it I saw, sitting on the bottom, two pieces that looked like part of the seal, but I didn't know where they came from. I put the rubber gasket back on, but now the pieces and now the dishwasher will leak when runn

Dishwasher Normally, after the dishwasher cleans the load, it displays green light next to clean. Once the door is opened, the light goes off an dishwasher is ready for next load. But from few days, after opening the dishwasher door, the clean light does not go off, it remains lit. Dishwasher doe snot reset for next cycle. So, I have to go in the basement and trip the main power to dishwasher. That resets the dishwasher. This needs to be done before each cycle. Not sure how to resolve the issue.


Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles \015\012are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door \015\012during the drying cycle. ... Dishwashers

Smelly Dishwasher Hi I have a Baumatic bad6002 dishwasher. The smell that comes out of it is putrid and has been from day one. We rinse everything before it goes in, I have used dishwasher cleaners and hung smelly things in there to prevent the smell but it still stinks. I do not use cheap cleaners only finish or morning fresh. It gets turned on approx every 2-3 days and the dishes actually go mouldy before it gets turned on. I have had several dishwashers and this is by far the the most disgust

There is a pool at the bootom of my dishwasher when the wash cycle is completed. When doing "Rinse Only", I could hear something come on immediately following the rinse but nothing seemed to happen. I pulled the Dishwasher out and the drain tube is set up so that it immediately goes upward a few feet before it eventualy goes back down to the drain. I noticed that there is water in the tube right next to the Dishwasher before it makes that climb. I'm wondering what all this means...

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell.
