\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please check the Water\015\012temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water\015\012temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now\015\012try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with\015\012this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store\015\012your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together.\015\012Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the\015\012dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012To check\015\012the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating\015\012element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water\015\012pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like\015\012it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
\015\012\015\012For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the\015\012entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the\015\012proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check\015\012the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks. Also make sure that the water\015\012is draining and is not accumulated in the dishwasher, if it is in\015\012dishwasher then check for clogged drain hoses and drain pump.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with\015\012today's dishwasher.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Please do\015\012rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

Cloudy glasses I have a Kenmore Classic dishwasher probably from the early 80's. It works fine except recently my glassware(new glasses) has started coming out cloudy(looking like there are soap spots on it) I have made sure I have the Jet Dry in there and I have even re-rinsed but they still look like that. Any suggestions as to why this is happening? Thank you Rita

Dead dishwasher? I have an Prima LXP600 dishwasher that doesn't work - no power light, no beeps, no anything. I've changed the fuse and used different power sockets. Is there anything that I can investigate, or alternatively is it likely to worth calling an engineer? The machine looks almost unused (was in a repossessed house that I bought, so no history), so I'd like to think that it's got some life left in it!

The dishes are not clean when we run the wash cycle. It looks like the water flow from the top sprayer is NOT working. The door, when we open it, has undesolved soap stuck in globs on the top of the door. The top dishes are not clean and some of the botom dishes are not clean. We've run some clear washes to see if we can find the problem. The water flow looks suspect. Is it in the electronics or in the water mechanics. I called the repair guy who ususally comes out and says buy a new one! The re

Most plastic ware like plastic glasses and some of the other dishes but not all come out with a hard to remove white coating no matter how much rinse agent I use. I use Cascade Complete powder for soap and Cascade Crystal Clear rinse agent what Bosch recommends the exact amount according to the owners manual. This problem started about a month ago, before that the machine worked well.

My accusense light keeps coming on and blinks continuously. I tried the heat-dry, normal sequence and it would reset to 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes cycle, the accusensor blinking would begin again. Then I tried holding the heat-dry button in for 5-seconds. This looked like it worked so we set a normal cycle without heat-dry. Äll looked good, but a few minutes in, the normal light was off, the accusensor was blinking again and the heated-dry was on again! Is the unit possessed? Other id

Hello, I would appreciate if you have any suggestions regarding my GE dishwasher. It turns on and seems to want to work but the rinse cycle does not produce any water, it makes noises like the water is coming out and rinsing but when I open the dishwasher the dishes are not wet. I've checked the water valve, turned the control panel off and on, I'm wondering if it is just clogged, any suggestions? Thank you.

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?


Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

When the water should be filling or rinsing the machine is making a horrible, loud, noise and no water is coming out. The solutions I looked at for no water don't mention this noise - they mention a slight hum. This noise is as loud as a TV turned up almost all the way! This happened during a cycle - the wash ran fine and it got to the rinse and started this.


Hi,If the noise lasts beyond 2 minutes at a time (which it sounds like it does) then you have a motor problem. I am suspecting that the main seal has leaked onto the motor and is causing water to get into the motor. ... Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a white chalky reside on my dishes after running the dishwasher. It looks like it has come off once I rinse them and they are wet, but when I dry them again it is back.

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes.

Quit working during wash cycle, about 6 liters of water left in bottom, looks like it quit during rinse cycle. There is power to the door switch and door switch works shutting off power when door is opened. However the control panel does not respond to any push button. I have had a problem in the past with moisture from the door vent getting into the control panel area causing the push buttons to become eratic.


The capacitors in the control panel could be bad or have burnt out. Do check all connnections and if necessary, check the continuity of the power to and from the control panel with an ohm/voltmeter. ... Dishwashers

My Bosch dishwasher is 8 years old and always worked well.. About a year or two ago the dishes started coming out dirtier than when they were put in, frequently encrusted with dirt and shredded dirt which looked like finelly shredded vegetable discards from the garbage disposal. The first set of repairmen sold me a new pump. The next people told me there was nothing wrong with it. The third repairman told me that I have to set the water heater on very High (for $98.00)

Fisher & Paykel DD603 Error code F2. My top dish draw is showing the error F2 , I have taken out the baskets, spray arm, propellors. The metal shaft is completley frozen, I can't move it at all. I see other posts say to wiggle it to free it but that doesn't work here. Can I get a copy of the service manual too? We are along way from a repair man to come look and I like to try myself before spending more money on it. My e-mail is [email protected] Thanks.

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it
