Brown deposit with shiny specks on floor of dishwasher after cycl

\015 I noticed a funny taste to the cups a couple days ago...last night I noticed a brown powdery substance with shiny specks in it on the left side of the dishwasher floor after the cycle had just run. It came off onto my finger when I touched it. It was dry/powdery, not greasy and had metallic looking flecks that I couldn't feel when I rubbed my fingers together. It was by the float cap. Any ideas?\015

Hi, Nobody wants to give this kind of news but what you are describing is called effluent. It comes from the inside of drainage pipes. That is why I wanted to know where it drained, but specifically, so I could help you identify where the problem might be. This problem occurs when the drainage is too slow for the machine. You need to check all of your undersink plumbing, garbage disposal if you have one, at the very least pull the sanitary trap and clean it out. Once you have cleaned out what is slowing down your drainage, run the machine and check to make sure you have no residue as effluent is not sanitary. Good Luck to you!

I have a dishdrawer (2) and following the use of a dishwasher cleaner, the bottom drawer appears to have developed a blockage. It will not empty, gets to the pump out part of the cycle and shows the red error code F3, to which there is no reference in the trouble shooting guide. The top drawer has also developed minute leak, sufficient enough to leave dribble marks on the lower drawer and over time, a white deposit on the floor. Is there anything we can do for the blockage problem before reso

My dishwasher is leaking huge amounts of foam to the floor. This is what happened before I ran the cycle: I had mistakenly poured detergent into the "Rinse Aid" slot in the inner side of the dishwasher door. After one or two cycles, I realized the mistake, and tried to rinse out the remaining detergent from the "Rinse Aid" compartment by running the cycle without screwing on the cap of the Rinse Aid slot. I found out it was a mistake as huge amounts of foam is being released during the rinse cyc

Our Hotpoint Dishwasher Model HDA200X-73BA has two little white plastic pipe stubs poking out of the bottom of the dishwasher. During one of the cycles--(I don't think it is the drain cycle)-- some water is being released from one of these pipe stubs and then it stops and the other one runs some water. They each only run for a few seconds, but the water is just running on the floor. These little pipe stubs are about one half inch in diameter and project out of the bottom of the dishwasher about

Our Bosch dishwasher (model unknown) collects small rock-like deposits in the ends of the top spray arm. From what I've read, these could be calcium or other mineral deposits. Is there a safe agent that can be run through a cycle that will break these up? I've tried 3 different dishwasher cleaners; none seem to help.

Dishwasher will not fill with water, dishwasher sat unused for some time. it worked fine for 4 times, then it backfilled with water from the garbage disposal unit, and leaked out through the floor. When I start a cycle we hear what it sounds like a pump draining and then going to cycle without water coming in. It's a bum.

We recently bought a house with a Kenmore 363.16222100 (?) dishwasher. No manual. Monday night it didn't drain properly and leaked some water on the kitchen floor. The cycle had finished when we saw the water on the floor. We bailed out the excess water. I took off the drain cover and insert. I couldn't see an obvious clog problem, but cleaned it out. Then I tried a short cycle, interrupting it to shorten it. No problem. Water seemed to drain fine. I did find a part that looked like a straw and

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor.

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?

Dishwasher keeps running I have a Bosche dishwasher and the water keeps running. As long as we run it and don't stop it, the pump will continue to drain about every 3 minutes. The water just keeps running though. If we open it to empty the dishes, the cycle will stop.
