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 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

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.

We have a 12 year old kitchen aid diswasher model kudpo1ilbs2. It is not cleaning the dishes. Everything is loaded correctly and the proper cycle and soap is being used. We have had no problems until the last 2 - 3 months when a greasy food film is now appearing on the dishes. Some food is left on but not a great deal. The question is what could be wrong and what kind of cost are we talking? We are trying to make an informed decision as to whether fix or buy new. Thank you in advance

My dishwasher stopped cleaning my dishes when it was just under 2 years old. I hadn't changed the type of detergent, or how I loaded/ran it. We have since tried different detergents and different wash cycles to no avail.
