My zanussi zdf131 has not caused any problems during the last year or so since i purcheased it, but now all the dishes etc come out with a "bloom" of white over everything. I've checked all filters etc, run several cleaning programmes but I've now noticed that the salt level does not seem to be going down. I check it every week & refil but this time the salt has been in the reservoir for several weeks & doesn't seem to have changed - could this cause the problem & if so why is the salt level not

We have an ariston LS 620A dishwasher. For the last year every few months the dishwasher seems to cause a short in our electrical box causing all the power to go out in our house. It is only when the dishwasher is on that this occurs. We turn the power back on and everything, tv computer etc starts then turn the dishwasher on and everything shorts out again. We have had an electrician in who said that there was no electrical problem and that it was the dishwasher. After 2 months or so the dishw

Run on the normal cycle the dishes come out smelling "fishy". I refill the jet dry every 2 weeks--it always seems empty and I know that's not normal for dishwasher use. Even the empty dishwasher has a "smell". Our water is excellent for drinking--it is not well water and has no odor. Please advise before I have to buy a new dishwasher. Our dishwasher is a Quiet Partner II.

Hi - I have a Neff S5456X2GB/13 and it has decided to wash cold and doesn't dry. When washing in auto mode it seems to take forever but does eventually stop, and I've noticed that when opened the time to go indicator can vary quite a lot (sometime goes backwards in that if you wait ten minutes and look again, it's saying it's going to take longer than it did before) I have replaced the pump in the past so I know how to dismantle the machine. What are the possible causes of this problem and ho

Whirlpool dishwasher Clean light is flashing, we just bought it last week and after the third wash, the Clean light started flashing and it won't go off, which stops it from doing anything else. User manul says to have it serviced, but that seems unneccessary. It doesn't seem to be draining completely, so there may be a knk in the pipe, which may be related, just not sure

I have a Bosch Exclusiv dishwasher (Model SGS 8812 GB) which, from installation in January 2002, has consistently caused glassware to go cloudy. This happens after about 8/10 weeks from buying new glasses. I use Finish Rinse Aid and Salt and have an independent water softener installed. This is proving an expensive exercise, as I need to replace glassware every 10/12 weeks. Have you any suggestions, please? Thank you - Doreen Sheardown


You are sandblasting your glasses. The added salt with the salt from the softener is causing the cloudiness. If you are rinsing the dishes to be mostly clean first and using the suggested amount of detergent you are way over sudsing.#1 St ... Bosch 24 in. SHE43C05UC Stainless Steel Free-Standing Dishwasher

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks


It's worth looking under the machine. There is an overflow area with a float switch which sometimes fills up and it stops it working ... AEG Dishwashers

Washer went dead. replaced thermal fuse and it worked for about a week and went dead again. Before going dead it seemed to take it a long time to do a load of dishes. The last load ran 1 1/2 hours and still showed 45 minutes to go on the timer before it quit completely. Any ideas?


Sounds like you have a bad control board on unit.and the reason the thermal fuse went out is one of the relays are getting stuck on unit. before long the fuse will go bad again when the resistance level gets to high again. i would replace the control ...

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

Hotpoint Dishwasher Bought it new 2 weeks ago. Seemed to be working ok. Last night it started leaking out the front door (suds). I disconnected the drain line (tried to blow through line to tub, NO GO) so I started it and ran it into the sink. It seemed to be flowing OK, but there is still about 1/2 inch of water inside washer. Is this OK? Model # HDA3400G02BB

When we do not use the dishwasher for a week or more water seems to back up into the tub. The water has a foul smell to it and can be as much as an inch or so deep. The dishwasher drain hose is attached to an insinkerator disposal. By the way this dishwasher is only a couple of months old and we have had to have it serviced three times. No one has been able to explain the water accumulation and it can not be demonstrated unless the washer sits unused for a while.

I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n

My dishwasher is 6 years old it started making clicking and knocking sounds about a week ago. The display is blinking crazy at about 37 minutes left in washing cylce it blinks 37, HO, and CL. It blinks other numbers also. The water still seems to be flowing in and out fine. It's heating up and draining when canceled. I'm running it on normal wash and high temp. cycle. It sounds like the sensing parts in the door are going off and on.

2 weeks ago, I had a plumber come and put in a new garbage diposer and since then somewhat old/dirty water seems to be sitting at the bottom after all cycles are done. I calle dhim back and he says that there is no problem in the plumbing but more with the pump. I even use the wt/dry vac and removed water and ran it but still comes back with water at the bottom. also the dishes smell like soap. Help!!!


The plumber did not make an air gap in the dishwasher drain hose when he reattached it to the new disposal. Look under your sink, does the hose (attached to the disposal) go down and through the cabinet? If so, that is definitely the issue. Simple ... GE 24 in. Profile PDW7800 Built-in Dishwasher
