Having problems with your Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher ?

Soap Not all of the soap dispenses. Some is left in the dispenser of the dishwasher after the cycle is finished.


Answers :

1. You have poor pressure coming from the pump. fix this by removing the racks from dishwasher and removing/cleaning the intake filter to the pump. It is located on the floor of the dishwasher. Use a wet vac if you have it to clean the entire area and anything that might be stuck down in the pump. you would be suprised what you find doen there. Don't be afraid to remove a few phillips screws to remove a cover to the impeller. After this all should work better/cleaner AND soap dish will be washed out too.

\015\0122. make sure dishes are not stacked to block the soap dish from water spray arms.
\015\012
\015\0123. remove spray arms and clean them out, especially the spray tips. Hard objects will stick in their spray tips.

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?

Hi our Touchdry model dishwasher isn't disolving the soap powder, we use the recommended brand Finish, worked fine up to a couple of weeks ago, now there's still a large lump left in the dispenser every morning - I always use the econo cycle, and the machine is always full up with dishes.

I have a 4yr old Smeg freestanding dishwasher. Model is DF612SDX. The problem is that a wash cycle will start but about 15 mins in it stops and 2 of the programme option lights (on the left hand side of the programme options), start flashing. If you open the machine the soap dispenser has failed to open. This problem has been a bit of a slow deterioration as we've had a number of washed that have managed to finish and then noticed that although the dispenser has opened it must have been to

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

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

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash away, but not the soap that comes out once the trap door pops for the main wash. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be causing the problem?

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.
