Kenmore dishwasher leaves LOTS of soap residue. We have hard water and have adjusted rinse aid level. Previously told problem wasdue to having washed dishes by hand and that dishsoap was problem. Told to run a cycle every once in a while with T of vegetable oil. Hasn't helped. Tried multiple soaps and soap amounts. Help please.


HI. You should never run any unit with vegetable oil. That was a horrible suggestion. This actually made your problem worse. With that said; This issue will be the result of a mineral build up inside all the hoses under the unit. The drain hose and r ... Dishwashers

Salt Light Cannot get the salt light to go out. Had some problems with a crystaline Deposit on the left side of machine. we checked the inside of the dishwasher and made sure all was clean etc. After that the light wouldn't go out. Had machine serviced. Turns out we were using too much diswashing powder Only need to use about a Teaspoon (heaped) for a wash not the recptacle full.

Recently my Maytag dishwasher has been leaving glassware filmy and not cleaning silverware and dishes as well as it had previously. I had a repairman look at it and he said I should use the "accu temp" setting for hotter water. I've used two dishwasher cleaner products and nothing has improved the results. I've heard that dishwashing detergents no longer contain phosphorus and that is the reason the glassware looks milky. Is there something I can add with the detergent to remedy this problem o

I have had this dishwasher for almost 4 years. It used to do a great job but last few months it has been doing a really poor job. Leaving food on dishes and also a film on them. I have taken everything apart and cleaned it good. I have tried different detergents, ran several diswasher cleaners in the machine. Even ran vinager in it because thats what i do for my coffee pot when it needs cleaning and it works great. We have very hard water here so I thought that could be the problem. Its frustrat

My Kenmore Diswasher (Mod # 665.17842400) has crapped out again. Towards the end of a cycle, the power seems to have been lost. There is now water in the bottom, and the user interface won't come on. 2 months ago I replaced the user interface and the magical board it connects to to solve a start button problem. I checked the power coming to the washer and it is live.


There is a thermal fuse on the control board. It protects in a overheating problem or sometimes when there are to many appliances on the same circuit that creates a high amp draw, that melts the fuse not actually blowing it like a short. Check your d ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and


The black residue is possibly rust from iron pipes. I have an old house with iron pipes and when the washer opened the valve that lets water in from the supply hose it did so suddenly and created a "water hammer" that shook the pipe. The hose suppl ... Amana 24 in. ADB2200AW Built-In Dishwasher

Hello my dishwasher seems to only do half a job at a time (and the timings for the programmes have increased dramatically). It will do a programme, but not drain, leave a puddle and leave everything dripping wet (no drying) then if I press reset the machine will drain (so the pump is working) but after resetting the problem remains and the programmes continue to not work properly. Can I solve this myself, or is this a problem with the 'computer'? Please help.......!

I'm having a problem with my Miele dishwasher G 879 SCVi I asked for assistance on 2/12/10 and paid $6.00. I have yet to get a response. Please let me know when I will as I need the problem addressed before Christmas Day. The problem again is that all the lights on the diswasher panel are all flashing at the same time when switched on. It may need to be reset somehow, as the power went off, which may have caused the problem. Your urgent assistance is required. Thank you

Asko diswasher D3122 - white, built in. For the past 6 months, the dishes are coming out white. I have had the dishwasher for a number of years and never a problem. I had changed to Cascade Complete so I thought that was it, so I switched back to the regular type of Cascade and still have the problem. I tried adding vinegar to the wash cycle and this helped initially but no longer works. I should not have to add vinegar to every load if it worked fine before. A new problem is that in the la
