\015\012If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it’s kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.
\015\012
\015\012Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush.
\015\012
\015\012The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.

We recently purchased a Whirlpool ADP 4736 dishwasher, and just last night while it was working the fuse just blew, and we heard a popping sound at the back of the washer.

I have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher. I have the typical top rack not cleaning problem. I have removed the rear washer tube that leads to the top sprayer, no clogs. Upper arm is clear, lower arm is clear. I also removed the lower cover, checked the chopper screen and inlet, no clogs. There is a screen inside that I cannot get to. It appears to have some sort of paper or cloth sticking through the screen with a 50% block. Perhaps a sticker or label from a dish. I see this screen when looking

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

We used our LG diswasher to clean our grill grates, which was a bad idea, because now the unit will not clean the dishes. We cleared the washer arms of debris, but the unit still is leaving the dishes on both racks dirty and is leaving the liquid soap dispensed into the unit undissolved on the door of the unit. There are no kinks in the water inlet, and water is getting into the unit, but the dishes are not getting cleaned.

I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped.

Does not get dishes etc. clean no matter how loaded. Must pre-wash by hand to get all food off or will not come out clean. Why have a dish washer? Is there any secret to how to get it to clean?

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster.
