Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I have a 2yr old Beko D2731FW dishwasher that has recently started to not wash things properly and leaving a gritty residue on everything. I run a dishwasher cleaner through it on a monthly basis and the salt and rinse aid sections are fully topped up. Also it doesn't seem to heat quite as hot as it previously was. Please help!!

Hello Senseless,
\015\012Although I am not familiar with your specific brand and model dishwasher, I can offer you some advice on how to clean things up.. First off, remove all dishes from the cleaning compartment racks.. then your dishwasher may or may not have a drain screen or filter near where the water exits that compartment to be pumped out.. rclean that filter thoroughly. Then run the dishwasher on its hottest cycle setting ( without dishes inside ) and after about 5-10 minutes..pause it and add in a cup or two of white vinegar then restart it.. Let the dishwasher complete the cycle and try washing dishes with it. That technique should cleanse deposits of components inside the dishwasher and everything should work as designed. I am assuming that you aren't getting any backflow from the drain system back into the wash area from the drain hose/pump and associated connections. If you are, you may need to give that plumbing a thorough cleaning too. Let me know if after you've tried this, you were successful.. If not, then I can provide you with a few other things that may help..

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

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

I have a six month old Smeg, integrated dishwasher, model D1612CT which has been working fine until recently. The pots are not clean. The cups and mugs have tea "rings" around them and the glassware is covered in a "milky" film, which comes off immediately if rinsed under the tap. I stack the dishwasher as recommended in the manual. I use loose powder rather that tablets, salt and rinse aid. Can you please sdvise me?

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

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?
