My Miele dishwasher is about 16 months old. Initially it was awesome. Now it doesn't get anything truly clean on any rack. Every item has scum and traces of food or drink left on it. I've cleaned the filter and the no-return valve, and refilled the salt (yes, I used the right one) and rinse aid. The manual has no other instructions to remedy dirty dishes. The water is hot, and the machine seems to be running just fine. Where should I look for a problem?


The other possible problem is that the spray arms have small bits of food (sesame seeds are nasty!) stuck in the holes. Take the arms off and flush them out. You might need to poke out seeds that are stuck in the holes. ... Miele G880 Dishwasher

My GE Max dishwasher is not cleaning my dishes. There are food particles left on the dishes, and the dishes themselves are not cleaned very well. The bottom of the dishwasher has food particles left ont he screen once its done.

The dishes do not get clean. Food is left on plates, in bowls, on silverware. Coffee stains are building in cups. Milk leaves a "film" on glasses. When the cycle is finished, it appears that the water temperature was hot based on the amount of steam coming out of the dishwasher.

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?


I would try using a different soap or less of your current soap. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

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. If I want to use the dishwasher, I must first completely rinse off any food--and I cannot load dishes as tightly as I used to be able to. Yesterday I noticed that a dish in the back left corner--bottom rack was completely untouched---the residue was as if I had put it in the

I have had a repairman come out and look at this and he says all the diagnostic test say everything is okay. My problem: my dishes come out dripping wet...like it hasnt dried anything. Sometimes dishes are still dirty. I don't think there is any heat getting to anything. I run the water in the sink beforehand to try to get the water hot. I used this dishwasher for 1-1/2 years with no problems and now I have this problem. What is going on?

We have a Miele dishwasher. We've had a technician come because the water is not hot enough; the dishes are not dried when we empty it as a matter of fact glasses are stained and wet. After he left, the problems remained. :( We now have an additional problem. We have mildew in our dishwasher!!!!! WE wash dishes daily. WHY do we have these problems? Can we get a technician to resolve these problems permanently? Should we buy another brand?


I may be just repeating what the technician has done, please bear with me. Check first if the heating element inside the dishwasher is heating up to the temperature it is supposed to. You can do a manual inspection just to figure out. It may be a ... Miele Dishwashers

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers

Dirty dishes I have a zanussi slimline dishwasher, but no matter what I do the dishes still come out gritty and sometimes food particles stuck to inside of cups and glasses, glasses have a white film over them and have to be done by hand, pointless really, I use finish tabs or persil or anything that is of good quality, and use a rinse aid and salt.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher that won't rinse the glasses in the top rack. The chopped up food bits from the other dishes are left in the bottom of the glasses. I don't think it's a problem with the wash cycle as the glasses are cleaned of the material they went in with. I think the rinse cycle is depositing excess food onto the glasses.

I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher DU1345XTVB about 5 years old. It functions perfectly but is not cleaning the dishes well particularly the top rack. The arms spin, soap dispenser works, cycles properly--just doesn't get the food off. I checked the arms to see if the are blocked but don't appear to be as the dishes get wet. Thanks


There are a few things to do. The water temperature is a big contributor, in dishes not getting clean. Another is the type of detergent being used. Liquid dishwasher detergent with water softeners and a drying agent will help loosen food too. If ... Dishwashers

Samsung DMR57 dishwasher - Food grit and grime is now being left on the dishes in the lower rack, especially where they touch, after washing. The unit is 1 1/2 years old. The problem seems to be increasing over the past few months. I've tried all the manual's recommended procedures, to no avail. It would appear that either the water is not splashing up enough OR the grit is not being flushed out sufficiently. The manual states (inside front page) that "This product keeps food waste internal
