Action Packs not dissolving

\015 I have the same problem ~ our dishwasher is only two years old and the packs worked fine until recently. Does anyone know what could be the problem? After it runs, the pack is slightly dissolved but 3/4 of it is in tact and my dishes have a residue on them.\015

Answers :

These packs do not dissolve good in cold water. check that the washer heats up correctly, if it does not, get that fixed.

maybe you bought a bad series of packs. maybe they do not dissolve correctly. test one in hot water (about 50°C). they should dissolve good then.

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.

When starting a wash cycle it pumps out the remaining water as usual. It fills normally but does not pump/wash the dishes. It continues to heat and when first noticed it seemed to have gone through the complete cycle but didn't wash. The detergent door had opened and the soap pack dropped out but it never dissolved. The dishes were extremely hot too. Is the same pump used to both drain the washer and wash the dishes?

Re:dishwasher My dishwasher was working perfect. Now, everytime the cycle is done, the detergent door is open but the detergent is sitting right there. I was using the electrosol gel pack which was working great. Now, the gel pack is sitting there when i open it. On the bottom is of the dishwasher is a lot of sand-like particles. I clean this out everytime. I haven't changed anything and am wondering why, all of a sudden, it stopped working. I've had this less than a year. Thanks.
