Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

All of a sudden my glasses, silverware, plates etc have been coming out of the dishwasher and appear to be etched and cloudy. Can you help me please? I am embarrased to use them plus is this healthy? Thank you, Kathy


Answers :

I began having a similar problem about 2 weeks ago when I began using a new box of dishwashing detergent.
\012Today I learned that the formulas on the market have been changed to be phosphate free - and the phosphates that WERE in the detergents help prevent those issues - for the environment though
\012phosphates are not supposed to be good. I hope the manufacturers of these products hear from everyone about their experience so they can continue development of something satisfactory! July 1, 2010 was the date I believe for the change in formula to become effective.

I have used the McCulloch (FH180A) three times over the course of two years. On my fourth use the pressure washer just surged on and off and I would get a tiny spray from the gun each time it surged. In other words it would do nothing. Please help... very frustrated. Thanks


Sounds like the problem could be low input water flow or pressure. There could be crud on the intake where you hook up the garden hose, there could be some other sort of blockage. Try hooking it up to the hose and pull the trigger (with the po ... McCulloch FH180A Electric Pressure Washer

I have a Hotpoint dishwasher that is at least 25 years old. The powder soap in the cup is hard and dry at the end of a cleaning cycle. Therefore the dishes are not very clean. Could you please help me solve this problem! I have been using Cascade. Model #: HDA 780-02 AD Serial #: LF 623631 X Thank you very much. Dianne Cheseldine


Make sure your water temperature for your hot water heater is turned up enough. If this machine is 25 years old, the heating element may be wearing out causing the water not to get hot enough to wash the soap out. ... Hotpoint Dishwashers

I use tablet detergent for the dishwasher for last 4-5 yrs. with no problem. Today, 3 times in a row, at the end of the cycle, I opened the dishwasher and note that the tablet is only half dissolved? why? Please help. Thanks.

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

My glasses are covered in small grainy specs after the wash cycle. THey wash off easily, but that's not good, regardless. I used econo setting & thought changing to regular wash would help, but it didn't.

Oh, the model is SHU66C05UC/43, and the machine is maybe three years old. Thanks. Riffi OBrien

I understand that you can open the bottom up and see if there is anything lodged in the bottom of the dishwasher. Please help! thanks Cheryl
