Leaf skimming

When you are cleaning your pool to clean the surface, squrt a couple of drops of liquid dish soap on the surface of the pool while it is off. The high surface tention of the soap will spread over the top of the pool and push most of the leaves to the edge so you can just run the net around the edge and get most of them in one swipe. Try it you will think it's magic.

How do I clean the LCD/LED screen without smudging or leaving a water mark


Hi Herkandjen,
Most TV companies recommend only a dry cotton cloth for cleaning the LCD screens. My personal experience is that using a mildly moist clean cotton cloth is the best thing for this purpose. For tough oily marks MILD soap solution can also be used in place of water. Please be careful to apply only very mild pressure while cleaning. Never ever spray the screen with any kind of liquid. Because the liquid if seeped through the plastic frame can damage the electronics inside. Happy viewing.

Dishes do not clean, although the water is hot and the soap dispenses. Dishes and glasses have a cloudy residue at times, and dishes sometimes have small food particles baked onto the surfaces.


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

dishes not getting clean


Are dishes too greasy!
Check incoming water for free flow
Add correct quantity of soap as per manual. Use dish washer friendly soap. Fill rinse aid liquid in the dispenser meant for it.

Select a different cycle programe and give a try.

Palmolive liquid detergent was put in rinse aid recepticle.


I don't understand your question. But, I am going to try to answer based on a "given" I picked. Please read on.

Is the problem you put non dish washing soap into the dishwasher?

... and you want to remove it (soap) without removing ...

the receptacle?

the machine?

If you have non dishwashing soap in a dishwasher, the BIG problem is the suds, followed by the soap is not effective, and it cannot necessarily be removed from the dishes. The suds go from a couple little drops of soap to enough suds to fill Grand Central Station, including your kitchen. Am I close?

What I did when (I did it) this happened is, I put a product called "Anti-Foam" (I just HAPPEN to have a hot-tub) into the dishwasher which killed the suds. I cleaned the mess up off the floor, ran the rinse cycle only, dishwasher empty. Then, I ran the dishwasher again with dishwasher soap to make sure it was clean. THEN, I took the non dishwasher soap out of the cupboard where it sat next to the dishwasher soap and put it elsewhere!

So, what should you do? Go to the pool and hot tub place near you and get a small bottle of "Anti Foam" and do as I did. Expect to pay about $10.00 for the bottle.

Alterntively, you could remove the lower basket, sop as much water out as you can and then run the machine on a rinse cycle to see what happens.

While at the pool place, you might find a hot tub you like. Hey, you already have some of the chemical!

Dishwasher doesn't wash dishes right


The solenoid that opens the detergent door may have had water leak into it. Remove the inner panel from the main door, remove the solenoid mechanism and it's core. With the core out, clean the solenoid interior and the core surface with hot water. The core should fall out of the solenoid by gravity if it is clean. DO NOT OIL THE CORE OR SOLENOID. If there are signs of water entry to the solenoid, check the detergent dispenser seal for damage. Try using a tab type of detergent rather than liquid or powder. Make sure the release mechanism is clean as well. Hope this repairs your problem!
