My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through


I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help! And I rinse the dishes too, so I have no idea where all these "crumbs" are coming from. Will check back for updates. Hope to ... Bosch 24 in. SHU6802UC / SHU6806UC Built-in Dishwasher

Hi there I have a Miele G663 scvi dishwasher. The inlet/outlet light is flashing. I have cleaned the non return valve and filter at the bottom of the machine. I have also removed the water inlet pipe which has a large filter on at the end where it attaches to the water pipe. I have blown through this pipe and it is quite difficult to get air through. Do you think it is a filter that is blocked? If this is the case are they easy to attach to the bottom or the machine or would I have to get

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

My Bosh DLX dishwasher frequently leaves the dishes cloudy. This happens periodically. We have checked to make sure there are no food particles in the resevoir on the bottom.

I have a GE dishwasher (GSD4020Y70BB) new in 1996. I replaced the whole motor assembly in 2007, seal was leaking. My dishes are not getting clean now, dried food left on plates, coffee stains in cups not being cleaned. I removed main spray arm, found nothing, turned washer on and plenty of water gushing out. I took the cover off sump all clean. I removed the filter screen in the back, there appears to be a valve with some soft rubber around it. Water gushes out of this, does stop during the cyc

My Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard doesn't seem to be doing a very good job washing dishes, especially anything on the top shelf such as glasses.

I fll the dispenser about half full with liqid Cascade Complete and most of it is still there after the cycle is done. The inside of the door is also stained and dirty. I have looked at the

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

Over the past two years, the machine has occasionally stopped in mid cycle, while the pump continues to run, but the cycle stops advancing. Each time there has been water in the plastic pan under the pump, valves, and other mechanisms. The float switch has been tripped, stopping the cycle. Occasionally. but not always, the pump inlet has been partially obstructed by food waste. After bailing out the pan, the machine will run normally for weeks or months. There is no indication of a leak into th

It appears that the Inlet Valve is leaking on my Kenmore dishwasher. By replacing the inlet valve do I also need to undo the connection at the bottom with the teflon tape - or can I just undo the screws at the bottom of the plate and leave that connection alone? The dishwasher is 4 years old, could something be causing the valve leaking other than the valve being bad? Thanks! :))

Hi I have a Meile G 685SC Dishwasher. It has a water inlet problem. It will not fill and just keeps cycling through the water filling process with the water inlet light flashing.

The dishwasher won't fill with water. We took the water inlet valve off and cleaned the filter screen. The dishwasher worked about 2 times and started doing the same thing. We then replaced the water inlet valve and again, the dishwasher worked a couple of times and now we're back to it not filling again. What could the problem be?

I have a Neff Dishwasher and I think the problem is due to the cold water inlet valve. When the dishwasher starts it drains any water and then should stat to fill. If I monitor the voltage to the valve it does switch to 240V but still fails to fill. I have verified that the cold supply works OK and the filter on the inlet is clean. The dishwasher is a NEFF GB5121 and is about 20 Years old.
