We have had the dishwasher for about 1 year. It has worked fine up until a month or so ago. I use liquid detergent and after I wash a load of dishes, the liquid soap is all over the botton of the dishwasher, around the dispenser door and all over the dishes loaded above the soap door. Do you have any ideas what could be causing this? Thank you.

The machine works fine, but about one out of every 4 or 5 times it is run, the detergent remains in the dispenser. The dispenser door has opened and the detergent is hard packed from having gotten wet. It seems like whatever is supposed to cause the detergent to be flushed out of the dispenser is not happening. Am I loading the dishwaher is such a way that the detergent is not getting out?

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

We bought model KUDS02FR in Nov. 2005. The last few months we have had a residue on many of our dishes, esp. plates and bowls, when we unload the dishwasher. We've been double-checking the detergent dispenser, Jet Dry, and the way we load the machine. We have rewashed dishes, but it doesn't seem to have solved the problem. I cannot find a trouble-shooting guide in the Consumer Reference Guide, only information on loading and guides to the various racks. We have hard water and use both dispensers

Frigidair model FDB520rHB2 Bought this brand new dishwasher and had it professionally installed. The unit seems to cycle fine, but after it's done, there is always a pile of detergent on the machine floor from where it dropped out of the dispenser. Plus the dishes are somewhat clean, but not all the way. I've tried all the trouble shooting that I could come across, but nothing seems to work. We have tried liquid, tablet and powder detergent with all the same results. Any ideas? Thanks
