I have an older hotpoint americana dishwasher. It is not cleaning the dishes well and in fact have to wash them first before using the dishwasher. Have checked the drain to make sure there are no clogs and found none. Doesn't have a drain problem, just doesn't seem to actually clean well. Any suggestion as to what the problem could be?

Dish washer does not drain after the cycle is complete. The last few months when the dishwasher is done their would be a small amount of water left in the bottom. It didnt create any problems but would smell after a few days. So we would just run the drain cycle and it would empty. Well i got home to and the wife said the it was really full. The water was dirty and when you run the drain cycle it didnt drain. She said the dishes were clean. So i cleaned the vent, and filled the sink with

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

Hi there, The error code 'strong and economy light flicker fleetly' is showing. the manual says that this means too much inlet water. We have drained the machine, cleaned waste pipe and tried to operate with a reduced flow from the inlet pipe but it's still not working. I filled the base of the dishwasher with water to see if it drains properly. It seems to be draining, but also leaking out of the base as well..? Any ideas?.

I have a Bosch SGE63E05UC dishwasher that keeps intermittently showing an "E:25" error code. Occasionally it will get all the way through a cycle without going into error, but more often than not it will error and stop. So far the main control module in the front panel and drain pump have been replaced and the problem persists. All hoses have been checked and are clean (unit is only 1 year old) and drains well, when it does drain. Any suggestions?

Hello. my dishwasher leaves gunk on the inside of glasses that were wiped clean before washing. It seems like that would mean the drain to the disposal is clogged but the hose is clear and the impellar is free. I blew on the hose and got movement in the disposal. the impellar is clean and new looking. I thought it would be a little dirty? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will answer any question you have in case i didn't explain it well.

Washer is making grinding noise after start. I found little plastic pieces in the filter in top washer drain. Cleaned it all out including the well which turns the rotating sprayer on.

I have a Miele G892 SC dishwasher. When I start the cycle, it drains (except for a bit of water left below the triple filter). After that, the intake valve opens and water enters. It then does nothing for a period of time until the "intake/drain" indicator light starts flashing. When I open the unit, I find about 1/2in of water in the tub (above the tripe filter). I have 1. cleaned the intake valve filter (no blockage found) 2. Inspected the drain line at the base of the unit as well as t

Dirty dishes At first the grinder made a noise, then sounded normal.  Now the dishes have food particles stuck to them after the wash.  The soap cup does not completely empty either.  Oddly, it still drains well. Any ideas why the dishwasher won't clean the dishes?  Could the grinder have died?
