Bosch dishwasher model SHV66A. New in 2004. Has worked well since then, but for last couple weeks something's up. Dishes aren't clean. Residue remains on everything. Food looks caked on & dried to plates. Silverware a little better but not much. Tried running a couple cycles with vinegar, no help. Took out strainers, etc. on bottom of washer & cleaned out; no help. Just ran a cycle now - - opened midway and it appeared the arms were both spinning. Also, water seemed warm (maybe not super

I have a brand new whirlpool DU1055XTV5 dishwasher, installed two days ago. After the cycle completes there is about 1/2" clean standing water left in the bottom. It is not just down in the well area, the whole bottom is covered with water. This is after running a normal cycle with no other options such as sanitize or heat dry. I called Lowes, the store that sold/installed it, and they said this is normal in new dishwashers to keep the parts wet. They said as long as the water does reach th

I have a Bosch Dishwasher- I installed a new garbage disposal and forgot to knock out the drain plug (dumb-i know) and I ran the dishwasher that night- well in the morning I noticed it was full of water and the bottom and the drain was humming. I then realized what I had done- so I knocked out the plug and the dishwasher drained immediately. but now the drain continues to run - even with the door open and I cannot get it off the drain cycle. Any suggestions?

I see that you have advised on the dishwasher soap residue problem in the past. I was just wondering if you have learned anything new since the last time you posted. I have this dw residue problem, too. I DON"T seem to have it with the gel packs. But my 3-level Kenmore did the job great up until about 6 months ago. Then, I bought a different dw soap and had trouble. So I changed brands. It STILL left a residue. SO bad that I phoned the company. They were completely noncommittal about the reason

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

Hi our nemo dishwasher starts a cycle and fills but does not start cleaning cycle. Light under start button flashes. If start button is held on it resets and pumps out. We live in an area with high clacium in water. At first the machine only pumped out and did not start filling.

My dishwashing isn't filling properly. I think there is residue on the float "thingy" (located on the bottom right side close to the door) and it doesn't float like it should, so the dishwasher thinks the water level is correct when it isn't. How can I clean it and get rid of the gunk that is keeping the float from floating?.

Subject is Bosch dishwasher SHU6800. There is a soap residue left on dishes. Residue is not visible. Using two glasses taken from a recently completed wash cycle I rinsed one under tap water and then filled glass with tap water. The second was just filled with tap water. There is noticeable soap bubbling and foam in the second glass. Starting the 10 min rinse/hold cycle following completion of a full 60 min wash cycle results in considerble soap foam in the bottom of the tub. Have tried thr

Our GE GLD5900 dishwasher's coarse filter, the large filter on the bottom ,is warping up. this allows food and other particles into spray arms which then fail to circulate. I don't think the fact that it is warping up is good for the pump eitehr since harder particles are not going into the sump for grinding at end of each cycle but circulating though pump. Although this part is cheap, shipping is not, andi I replaced it last year. the new one warped up as well a few months later and is no lon

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that all of the sudden stopped cleaning well. I now find food residue on the dishes, and the detergent cup does not empty completely. I use the gel detergent, and I just see the gel dripping down the door after the cycle is complete. This machine is about 5 years old, and I'm looking to see if it can be easily fix. I rather not have to call someone to tell me that I have to get a new one, or pay more to fix it that what it is worth. Thanks

The top drawer doesn't work - when you push the Start button, there is a series of 4 quick beeps, and there is some symbol of a dish with 3 drops of water, but it doesn't do a wash. The bottom drawer works fine. Though the unit is level, the drawers do not appear to be well aligned. Any ideas?

I tried the bottom combo of hi temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry and it re-set my dishwasher but then after I tried to run a new load it doesn't seem like it finishes all the way through because there is still soap left in the soap dispenser and the dishes arn't all clean, plus the green clean light begins flashing again.

Sandy glasses The dishes on the top rack come out with a sandy residue on them....we have tried running it with the jet dry dishwasher cleaner, the vinigar and baking soda...have taken apart and checked all filters and water supply...no help with any of that. I also wonder how much water should be in there when it is running...shouldn't it cover the heating coil in the bottom? My water level is just below the coil.

About a year or two ago the dishes started coming out dirtier than when they were put in, frequently encrusted with dirt and shredded dirt which looked like finelly shredded vegetable discards from the garbage disposal. The first set of repairmen sold me a new pump. The next people told me there was nothing wrong with it. The third repairman told me that I have to set the water heater on very High (for $98.00)
