Put wrong soap in the SmatDispense container...

\015 I accidently put laundry detergent (gel) into the SmartDispense container (GE Profile). Should I drain the soap container? If so, how?Can I just run the dishwasher until I clear out the soap? Will this damage the dishwasher?\015

Answers :

If you run it as is you will have a kitchen full of soapy water.
\015\012Take a pot or pan. Fill it with COLD water. Our it into the DW. Fillit to the regular water level, about 1 inch below the bottom rim.
\015\012Set the DW to a pump out setting and drain it.
\015\012You will have to repeat this several times to clear the soap out.
\015\012COLD water pump out. Cold water pump out etc.
\015\012Do not use HOT water. You will get instant suds and lots of them.

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise. Thanks

The soap dispenser door will not open - I have been putting the tablets/ in the silverware basket for now but the dishes are not always coming out the cleanest. I think this is because the soap is being used up at the wrong time. Help.

My dishwasher does not sound correct (lack of spraying action sound) and this last time when I opened the door the soap had not disolved and the dishes where still dirty. I have taken apart the bottom arm before for a cleaning but it was only a couple of weeks ago. Could it clog up again so fast even when the type of dishes remain the same? Did I put it back together wrong? Maytag EQ Plus

I have an older GE dishwasher, model GSD1200T02. I recently put in the wrong soap, so I had to press the clear/reset button. When I did this, the dishwasher ignored me and seemed to continue through the cycles anyway. When it got half way between "drying" and "off", it stopped, and has been that way for several days now. It will not respond to any button pushes at all now. I cannot even reset it because it does not respond at all when I press the clear/reset button. I have had a load of di

I have a GE Triton XL dishwasher that is not spraying water onto the dishes. I just reset the power, and that didn't help. Putting it on the rinse only or wash cycle fills the bottom with water, but it sounds like a trickle vs. the spray. The heating element comes on and the soap door opens, but there's not spraying. I made sure there was nothing clogging the water line or other parts. What do you think is wrong?

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

Nope. My challenge is that the container for the soap is not unlatching during the wash cycle or at all. So at the end of a wash the cascade soap pod is still entact in the shut soap container.

The is for the model: DDW1899WP. The cycle is getting stuck in the first phase and the soap container is not opening. When I open the soap contain, water has seeped in because the soap is moist and hard rather than loose and powdered. In addition, water is pooling int he bottom of the dishwasher. I tried adding more rinse aid because that has solved the problem in the past but it is still persisting.

My kids put liquid dish soap (not for dish washers) into the hole where you put special rinse product.

I have a sears pressure washer, model 580752300. The pump on the underside vibrated lose and broke a couple screws. It came off and the oil drained out. I replaced the screws and it's ready to go except I can't find out how much replacement oil to put back in. Sears has larger containers but won't tell you how much oil to put in. However, there's a pricey pre-measured container they want to make you buy. Anybody know how much oil goes in that pump?

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?

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.
