Having problems with your Magic Chef Dishwashers ?

Soap remains in glassed or cups, both with powder or Tablets


Answers :

1st check your water temp, it needs to be between 120 and 140 to clean dishes and if temp is good then your spray arms, one or both isn't turning which mean low water pressure coming in or the wash motor is bad.

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?

Whirlpool adp8540 - goes throught the wash cycle without the soap door opening, the water gets into the soap box, and the powder or tablet (I've tried all the brands) are wet but remain in the soap box. When I flick the level on the soap box, works just fine, just doesn't happen during the wash cycle.


Normally, the dispenser is waterproof when closed, so the detergent should not get wet. Most likely the actuator of the dispenser works and does open the door, but something is blocking it from opening all the way. Look for stuff not it its place, ie ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

What is the best dishwashing soap to use in an Asko dishwasher? I have been using an environmentally friendly powder that I buy at my local King Soopers, but lately, some powdery white residue remains on plastic glasses. I remember my salesperson telling me to use powder not gel or liquid. Is that correct? I also use Rinse Aid regularly.

GE Dishwasher detergent dispenser has hardened soap in it when cycle is done We, too, have the same problem. Ours is a GE Profile MAX - GSD6610K01CC. The basket is obviously not allowing the door to open fully, so I think it is intended to work this way. The question remains, though, why is there solidified powder remaining in the dishwasher after the complete dishwasher cycle has finished? Tabs work well, as the tab falls out, but all the powder doesn't seem to. Electrosol powder is less expen

My dishes are coming out lacking shine and with a cloudy coating on the silverware and glasses. I use CascadeComplete and an additive liquid in the "shine" cup. My Maytag dishwasher is 15 years old. We also have very hard water, so I am being sure to fill the cups full of the powder prior to washing. Any tips? [email protected]


I'm not an expert, but either it's the hard water, or it's not getting the "shine" liquid. I'd look for a soap that specifically says that's for use with hard water. A water softener would be the best solution.Just keep an eye on the "shi ... Maytag Dishwashers

When I take a glass or cup out of the dish washer after they are cleaned and heat dried, or a day plus from the cabinet to put cold water,too many small bubles are floating on top the water surface, as a soap-like condition; it clears up shortly. The tech told me it is normal. I think it is not normal because I suspect the rinsing is not totally complete because of the water conservation design. Am I drinking soap-water?
