Put 2 tablespoons of oil into the water at the bottom of the dishwasher it will help break up the suds. Sprinkle as well ordinary table salt liberally across the suds to disperse them. Try to drain the unit as much as possible, soaking up any residual water or suds with a dry towel. Let the machine fill again, and repeat the process if necessary. Good luck !

Look for a product called Defoamer, it is sold where you rent carpet steamers. Run it through a cycle or two with no dishes.

What you do is put 2 tablespoons of fabric softener and run it through the normal cycle that will clear everything up

Have you ever take a bubble bath and lost all the bubbles when you tried to use your hand soap?

To check if your hand soap will do the job, put some bubble comming from the DW on a wet hand soap; if the bubble seem to vanish, try this:

Take this hand soap bar and rub it on a chesse screen; take about one table spoon of this stuff and mixe it in a glass of warm water. Pour the liquid in the DW and start the motor; the soap mixture will kill the bubbles.

My Samsung model #WA4H7000AW/A2 seems to always need an additional rinse to get rid of soap left behind. Is this a common complaint ?


Here are some questions that may help.
1) Is the water hot enough? Since the soap "melts" better at higher temperatures, cooler water can leave a soap film.
2) Are the dishes clean before you run the machine? We like to used the dishwasher to "sanitize" the dishes, so we rinse them really good before washing them, to get off caked food residue.
3) Try changing washer soap, try powder if you used liquid, or visa-versa, and try less quantity and see if any of those help.
God bless your efforts.

Soap is not completely washing all the soap powder away.


Stop using the powdered detergent. It has a reputation for clogging up machines and pumps. ALWAYS use the liquid detergent.

White streaks left on clothes


1.Have you used too much detergent and it hasn't all rinsed out...was the machine overloaded and the rinse cycle can't penetrate the MASS of wet fabric.
2. If you are in a hard water area, could there be limescale build-up/ mineral deposits within your inlet pipes/hoses.
3. Did you use a biological powder instead of a colour or non-bio detergent and these marks are now actually 'bleached' dye lines.

Reduce detergent quantity. Check the rinse aid dispenser and fill if required..

Finally check your inlet water free flow to the machine. If the strainer is blocked clean the part.

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash...


Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking.

Filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?


Hello chystalsbrr
Welcome,


You said you, filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?

You can try by turning off the breaker in the electric box that feeds the dishwasher for 5 minutes and see if when you turn it back on and the washer resets itself, and the soap door opens.
Or push cancel and then rinse and after it is done and goes to the dry cycle stop it and it should be open.

In the use of liquid soap in both a dishwasher and or washing machine you must use less soap. Half that of powder soap.
Or the suds will roll out of your dishwasher on to your floor. And this is not a malfunction on the dishwashers part. NO bad seal or anything!
In a clothes washer it will destroy the seal and bearing in less than 5 years!

Let me know how it goes!
