Electrolux ESL6115 integrated dishwasher - for the last few months the tablet (i have tried every brand available with no difference) gets stuck inside the tablet dispenser and then does not dissolve correctly so my dishes remain dirty. the spring does click to release, if you put the tablet in the bottom or wait for the click and then manually flick it out of the dispenser it cleans fine. the inside of the dispenser is wet, drying it makes no difference, i think that the seal may have gone arou

We haave a Frigidare FGHD2433KB1 dishwasher that we installed in September of 2010. Already it is not working and we are 2 highway hours from the place where we bought it. Sometimes the detergent doesn't open, sometimes dishes are not dry, recently the PF light has been coming on - yet no other appliance has had power interrupted. I am thoroughly disgusted with this machine and there are only two of us in the house so it get light use and we rinse our dishes well before placing in dishwasher.

We have an E39927 dishwasher that dumped a lot of water on the floor--seems to me from the last time this happened there is a filter or clean-out section that needs cleaning. I assume it is the round rotating device on the front right floor of dishwasher. Can't locate my manual. Is that the correct place to clean and if so, how do I remove the top to access the screen? thanks, Gail

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue. However, in the process of doing this I incorrectly installed the flood switch back into place, meaning that it was in its closed position (i.e. the position it would be when activated by a flooded base) when I went to turn the dishwasher back on. I have since opened it back up and correctly installed the flood switch, but I ca

My dishwasher, a Whirlpool DWF B10, is not cleaning properly. When the cycle has finished, there is always a block of undissolved dishwasher tablet/powder left behind. My guess is that the seal to the powder door has gone and allowing the tablet to get wet too early and part dissolve before the door opens - is this likely to be right? If so, can I get a replacement seal or do I have to replace the whole powder & rinse aid containers ??
