Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our Ariston LI645A dishwasher is not drying the dishes completely and whenever the cycle has finished, it always resorts back to the ECO cycle whereas we usually have it on the normal cycle? I have filled up the rinse aid but it does not seem to make a difference. The manual also says to put refined salt into the salt dispenser - i have not done that yet as was not sure exactly what 'refined' salt is and where i can get it from. thanks

Hello. My dishwasher has been pretty perfect for four years. When my house water softener ran out of salt, I added rinse aid and salt to the dishwasher for the first time. I subsequently added salt to the softener. Recently [a few weeks later] the glasses have all come out cloudy, something that never happened before. Also, the cutlery has whitish marks on it which are impossible to remove. I would love some help on this. Many thanks, Terry

We have had our dishwasher for quite a few years, and all of a sudden (within the past month), it has been leaving a gritty white powder on the dishes. We tried other soaps, and putting less soap in. We even tried putting rinse aid liquid in (which we've never had to use before), but it is still leaving the grit. What can we do to fix it? It is a Roper RU4300DQ3.

We've got Beko DE 2542 FW Slimline dishwasher. Everything switches on as it is supposed to but nothing happens. Rinse aid and Salt indicator red light is not on, because we've filled them up. Switched on dishwasher, green light for "On" comes on. Selected programme level, pressed start. Green light comes on for "Wash" Nothing happens - we've left it overnight but nothing happens. What seems to be the problem? Look forward to hearing the solution.

I have a 12 year old Kenmore Ultrwash Model #665.15951790. I recently replenished the rinse aid dispenser and am experiencing an oversuding problem. It was oversuding to the point that suds were coming out the bottom of the door. Did notice that the blue rinse aid seemed to have leaked into the dishwasher due to a puddle of blue rinse aid at the bottom of the dishwasher. Have run a "quick rinse" cycle 4 times with no dishwasher soap added and still have sudsing. Can the rinse aid cause oversudin

It won't complete a full wash cycle keeps stopping part way through and low rinse aid, low salt lights flashing even though both are full ??? Pamphlet says this might also mean there is a kink in the inlet hose but that seems fine as well. Have had the dishwasher 3 weeks and it has completed about 4 cycles without stopping ???

My Miele dishwasher is about 16 months old. Initially it was awesome. Now it doesn't get anything truly clean on any rack. Every item has scum and traces of food or drink left on it. I've cleaned the filter and the no-return valve, and refilled the salt (yes, I used the right one) and rinse aid. The manual has no other instructions to remedy dirty dishes. The water is hot, and the machine seems to be running just fine. Where should I look for a problem?


The other possible problem is that the spray arms have small bits of food (sesame seeds are nasty!) stuck in the holes. Take the arms off and flush them out. You might need to poke out seeds that are stuck in the holes. ... Miele G880 Dishwasher

Hello, I am having problems witha kenwood dishwasher, it just isn't cleaning anything. It seems to be going through the cycles and sometimes the dishes particularly in the top rack are a bit cleaner but in general they are uncleaned. There are no error codes. I wondered if the arms for some reason weren't turning correctly as some of the dishes were clean but this is inconsistent. I have tried changing detergents, adding more salt and rinse aid but it still isn't working, can you help?

I have a whirlpool for Ikea dishwasher that is built in and I put it on the normal 30 minute cycle before I went to bed and 8 hours later it was still going. I opened the door and machine was full of suds. It is like it gets stuck and can't move on to the next part of the cycle. I have checked the filter in the bottom of the machine and checked the salt and rinse aid levels.
