Our dishwasher is no longer cleaning dishes very well and usually the detergent tab that we put in does not dissolve completely. Our dishwasher is a General Electric Model # PDN7800G00WW and several years old. The water here is very hard. On a separate note and a new development is the control panel seems to be messing up. When we press the ''speed cycle'' which is normally 37 mins it goes to 86mins and lights up the ''speed cycle:'' button. pressing the ''glass cycle'' lights up the adjacent '

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

Whirlpool Quiet II (DU110XTPB1)... Two problems (maybe it's one)... Start/resume light flashing and won't stop. I have tried on the different button combinations from this website and other websites and none of them seem to make a difference. The flashing continues. That's problem number one. Problem number two is that it seems to go into some sort of washing cycle in completely random intervals. When it's in one of the random washing cycles the following lights are on; Normal Soak and scour

I have a kitchen aid dishwasher that is stuck on the clean cycle. It will drain water, but no water seems to be getting into the washer. If i push the start button, cycle will not start. The clean light is the only light that will stay on. the other lights will go on, but they eventually go off without starting the cycle. Is this the thermal fuse???

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite Ultra dishwasher 665.1315 model. For the last 3 weeks, it keeps having the clean light blinking 6 times pause then 1 blink and pause and repeats cycle again. I have turned off the breaker...I have reset by pressing the heated dry and normal wash until all lights are flashing. It then completes some type of cycle and looks ok. When I opened the door, steam came out and all was hot inside. However, once I try any new wash cycle, it seems to wash but after 1-2 hours and

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

I lost the manual for my dishwasher. I have two questions: (1) How does Light Wash differ in its cycle from Normal Wash? It seems it should be (but isn't) shorter. (2) When using the Light Wash cycle, should I put soap only in 1 of the cups for dispensing (leaving the pre-wash cup empty)?

DU1145XTP The buttons don't all work--for a while the normal wash and heated dry were the only functions that worked--now the start button doesn't work. I took the panel off and clicked the door switch and held it and got all the cycle buttons to light up except rinse only and only heated dry in the cycles would light up. The delay buttons don't work and neither does start. Also the panel seems hot.

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

The "clean" light blinks 8 times, then there is a pause, then it blinks once. The dishes are clean but not dry, as if it has not completed the drying cycle. We had an engineer out to fix it who said it was the circuit board and that the blinking light code indicated "too much suds", he replaced the circuit board, but it didn't make any difference. It's an intermittent problem: sometimes the machine completes its cycle OK. I ran it with just vinegar and nothing else in (no detergent, no dishe

Dishwasher is not drying. At end of cycle, dishes are still wet and damp, as well as the inside. Buttons are all pushed. Also, it seems to wash for more than one cycle. Did a light wash and after 1-1/2 hrs., it was still running. Purchased a couple of months ago. Dishes don't seem to be as clean as my old dishwasher.

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

Incomplete cycle My Miele dishwasher (3 to 4 years old) finishes, leaving the dishes dirty and wet. It seems that it may only be running through part of the cycle - I'm not sure but from the time I set it going to the time it switches off, it seems shorter than usual. The dishwasher is not emptying as it has a pool of water in the bottom. I have tried various settings and have the same problem. the inlet/drain light DOES NOT come on. I have soaked up all the residue on the bottom and cleaned out

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but
