Liquid soap mistakenly used - bubble explosion

\015 Our babysitter mistakenly put liquid dish soap into our diswasher (a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III) instead of solid (powder) soap. It exploded with bubbles and even now, running a "rinse only" cycle just seems to produce more bubbles. How do I clear the remaining soap out of the dishwasher without harming it?\015

Answers :

Fill the detergent cup with fabric softener for a full cycle. Don't be alarmed if bubbles seep out.

I have a Kenmore built in dishwasher. Serial Number 15989990 Model 665. My dishes are not getting clean. Lots of residue on glasses on top rack and dishes streaked. Any ideas?

What is the best dishwashing soap to use in an Asko dishwasher?

When I fill up both soap dispensers, only one is empty after the wash. The cover never releases the other soap. It says fill both and then cover the right side. But after the dishes are washed - the covered side is still full of soap. I've used both powder and liquid. Anybody know what to do? It is an older (don't know how old) early 80's maybe.

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.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!
