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,

My Kenmore model 665.16022401 has the problem w/ the clean light flashing. I tried the bottom combo of hi temp wash, heated dry, high temp wash, heated dry and it re-set my dishwasher but then after I tried to run a new load it doesn't seem like it finishes all the way through because there is still soap left in the soap dispenser and the dishes arn't all clean, plus the green clean light begins flashing again. Don't know what to do.

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher is almost 10 years old but has held up well. Over the past couple of months, however, it does not rinse well but leaves a layer of crud on the surfaces of the dishes in the top rack. I've cleaned out the sprayers and the associated plumbing (built-up pulp residue from labels left on some cans) but the problem persits. It's as if the crud is not getting filtered and removed from the rinse stream.

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents. I have also added a rinse cycle as well. Nothing works. Now, I am seeing this sandy dirty debris dried bits in the bottom o

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

I have gritty debris on the dishes, it appears the small bits left on the dishes before loading get broken down and rinsed onto them as grit again! The dishes are not spotless going in but they are scraped clean--i object to the waste of hand washing then dishwashing . I did run a load with no dishes and vinegar to clean it, the screen in the drain is clean, I don't know what is missing. Its like it doesn;t drain the dirty water away somehow

Kenmore model 665.16509200 Does not clean very well and now dry cycle not working. Wash cycle takes almost 2 hours, and still dishes had gradoo and white detergent on them, even ones that were clean when they went in. The drying coil had plastic melted on it once before, so that could have caused that malfunction. I am not so concerned about that, it is the dirty dishes after 2 hours that is driving me nuts. The short wash cycle leaves EVERYTHING dirty, so I just quite even trying that.

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

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.
