I would like to run the Smart Dispenser Purge function on my GE Profile 9280N Dishwasher because, we mixed detergents and it is no longer functioning correctly (glassware and silverware does not get clean). I would also like to know how to turn off the SmartDispenser so I can use the manual dispenser. I can find all kinds of documentation online for the 8900 Series and the 9700 & 9800 Seriers but not for the 9200 Series.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

My kitchenaid dishwasher won't wash. The clean light blinks and if I can get it to cycle, it turns on to ''2 minutes'', during which 2 minutes it makes some washer-like sounds but doesn't clean, dry or spit out any water. Before this, I wash having trouble getting my dishes clean. I wash able to get the bottom rack clean using the heavy duty cycle, but the top rack still didn't clean

I just purchased a G.E. dishwasher with a black front panel that is glossy. My daughter used a mister clean sponge to clean it and is now full of scratches, is there anything I can use on it to get them out without having to replace the panel. I also have a G.E. frig with a different finish on it, it has a rough texture it never marks or shows finger prints best refrigerate I have ever owned, and was wondering if I could get that finish on the dishwasher door panel.

Glasses and others things are not getting clean in the upper rack. A white film remains on the glass and stains are not removed. Also I'm having trouble with the silverware showing rust spots and not getting clean. I use Jet- Dry all the time. We bought it three years ago. The brand is JDB-5 and numbers inside the door are: JDB1270 AWY 36072124 LC MAX LOAD CHG 9. made in Newton, Iowa. We have had trouble with things not getting clean for quite a while, but it has gotten worse. The water is scald

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster. I don't have a manual so

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

I have a Whirlpool DU810SWLQ0 that will not drain. I've pulled the unit out, snaked the drain tube, pulled the motor/pump, and pipe assemblies, and cleaned the food trap, which I also removed. I've run the dishwasher with a bit of bleach, and the water will pump in, get processed by the agitator, and be heated. When the rinse cycle comes, dishes get covered in food, and are never clean. Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

We used our LG diswasher to clean our grill grates, which was a bad idea, because now the unit will not clean the dishes. We cleared the washer arms of debris, but the unit still is leaving the dishes on both racks dirty and is leaving the liquid soap dispensed into the unit undissolved on the door of the unit. There are no kinks in the water inlet, and water is getting into the unit, but the dishes are not getting cleaned.

Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

Cleaning My dishwasher always leaves behind these brown small peices of crime. I use about 1 tsp of dry poweder (the repair told me to last year) and that helped with all the streaks on the dishes. I clean the traps often, clean off my dishes to the point as I might as well just do them by hand, and still I get these food particles or whatever it is. We have a good working water softner. I get so frustrated and it seems like such a waste of time. Any suggestions? Teree

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

I am trying to clean my block paving using my pressure washer Karcher 3.99, which I used successfully last summer, however, it is not cleaning well. I have used the high power nozzle but the power seems inefficient to get the dirt out of the paving. Please can you advvise what you think the problem may be. Many thanks. Sue Thompson

I have an 18 Inch dishwasher, model #FDR251RJSO. Lately it does not rinse all of the dishes evenly. In particular the stainless, but also some of the glassware comes out filmy and cloudy as if the detergent did not rinse off properly. The detergent I use is Cascade Advanced Power. I have thouroughly cleaned the inside removing any collected debri. I have given the machine a vinegar bath twice, as well as a commercial cleaning product wash. I tried using liquid rinse, which hasn't been used for a

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

Recently my Maytag dishwasher has been leaving glassware filmy and not cleaning silverware and dishes as well as it had previously. I had a repairman look at it and he said I should use the "accu temp" setting for hotter water. I've used two dishwasher cleaner products and nothing has improved the results. I've heard that dishwashing detergents no longer contain phosphorus and that is the reason the glassware looks milky. Is there something I can add with the detergent to remedy this problem o
