The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

Frigidaire dishwasher 15 months old. just started not washing dishes very well. set it for high temp wash. put plenty of fresh dishwashing liquid in. the unit goes thru a full cycle. you open the door and dishes are still dirty. there is always lots of dishwash liquid in the door. some of it runs down the inside of the door of the unit. just does not use all of it so dishes dont get cleaned. what could it be?

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

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

I have a Frigidaire Aqua Surge with Speed Clean dishwasher. The model # is FDB4315LFCO The serial # is TH64297242. There always is a smell in the dishwasher. Even when I have just washed the dishes, when I open it it smells. Also when there are just a few dishes in and I close the door and reopen it, it smells. I rinse everything very well before I put the dishes in. I have tried cleaning it with a dishwasher cleaner and that didn't help. HELP!!!!!

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 dishwasher Quiet Partner III. After several washings we noticed that the dishes were not clean at all. I placed the spinners pointing out, shut the door, waited 3-5min and re-opened the door, the spinners were in the same place. Neither were turning. So I disassembled the bottom of the dishwasher, took of the spinner+filter screen etc, down to the bottom well. Then I held down the switch on the frame and tripped the the microswitch on the door to see what hap

Kude48fxbl - brand new out-of-the-box. When put through a test cycle after installing it, water poured out of the bottom left edge of the door. This was not associated with either the water input or the discharge hose, but rather seemed to come from the interior of the washer and out under the door. The door seemed well latched, and running it with some dishes in the bottom tray (not blocking the soap dispenser) didn't help.

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle. (I ran it with the bottom filters removed) upshot is the pressure of water was really poor. also, when I first turned

Frigidaire dishwasher PLD2855RFC rinse aid leaks around cap. How to fix? New cap? Is this a recurring problem? I have found rinse aid on door below cap (residue) plus have found rinse aid itself on dish below dispenser. I have to refill the rinse aid reservoir about every 7 or 8 wash loads. Also, the dishwasher is very noisy when running (should be quieter). Not very happy with this model ...

Dirty dishes At first the grinder made a noise, then sounded normal.  Now the dishes have food particles stuck to them after the wash.  The soap cup does not completely empty either.  Oddly, it still drains well. Any ideas why the dishwasher won't clean the dishes?  Could the grinder have died?


On the bottom pull the wash arm straight up and out. It shouldn't be clipped because they held in by gravity. Under there is where you will find extra crud that gets lodged underneath the arm where you can't see it. Do you fill the rinse agent reserv ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

I have mold in my dishwasher. This happened about 6 mos ago and I used the vinegar and scrub method to get rid of it...it was a pain in the fanny! Now the mold is back...the dishwasher has also not been drying the dishes very well either, although in truth it never has. There must be some other reason that the mold is back! Oh, and I've used Jet Dry since I bought the machine 7 years ago, and have tried the ''leave the door open to dry the dishes'' .... any thoughts?


Get rid of the mold - Pour about 2 cups of bleach in the dishwasher with about 1 cup of salt, and a gallon of cold water, use the light wash, not heated. Make sure when you start the cycle it doesn't drain first or you lose the bleach. Also I don't ... Dishwashers

- the dishes and glassware on the top rack are not coming out clean - I checked the course strainer to see if it is being blocked but don't see any thing there - I also took out the spray arm that sprays up into the top rack and ran water through it with a hose - it also appears to be free of clogs. - I don't see the spray arm spinning when I open the door during the wash cycle - - lastly, it may be unrelated, but the dishes are not coming out of the washer as hot as they used to be any i

I have a Maytag MDB8951bws and I have noticed that the dishes at the end of the cycle do not feel hot but mildly warm and not completely dry. I also noticed that when I select the ''Sanitize'' option the light that tells you the dishes have completed being sanitized does not come on after the cycles are completely finished (the ''clean'' light does come on). One last note I will throw in is that the high temp wash seems to work quite well as a lot of steam is expelled when the door is opened dur

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle. Also, I thought the rinse aid was empty so I went to fill it and its obvious that it has not been dispensing either.

Kenmore (Whirlpool) 655 1589910 Dishwasher. Fills with water, motor makes horrible noise (buzzing / loud hum). Dishes do not wash and there is no evidence that any water pumped up to the spray arms. Spray arms are not clogged. We have a fully functioning water softener so it is not a hard water issue. Unit does drain normally. Either filter is badly clogged or pump is bad. How do I get to these parts to check them out?
