Is there anything blocking it when you close the door? every once in a while this happens to us and it's when we put something too tall in front of the soap dispenser without realizing it.

I have a 2 year old machine leaving oily spots on cloting


Drop a top of the range/high quality dish-washer tablet into the drum along with an old towel - the towel will help scrub the cylinder.

Then simple run a hot cycle on the washing machine!

What can I do to make it work?


I would have advised you before placing the tablet dry compartment with a dry cloths otherwise tablet would be stuck together. If does't help then put the tablet directly into the sink and never choose a quick program if you do not have functions (like 3 in 1, multi tab and so on....) that extend the time of duration of washing phase and give enough time for dissolve tab. Sometimes people on the upper basket hang up various odors or put dishes that may prevent to open small door to the end and dropping tablet.
The tablet most likely will drop during the washing cycle but the remaining time is not enough to dissolve the tablet and wash result will be bad.

My new dishwasher leaves a white residue on my pots. pans and stainless flatware. I have not changed soap. Could the water not be hot enough?


Check the incoming water quality. If water is hard and having calcium content this could happen. Use water softeners in the inlet water to the machine.

If dish washer salt compartment available fill with the special salt meant for dish washers.

Check rinse aid compartment and fill rinse aid. Or use two in one soap tablet.

Dishwasher 3 in 1 detergent tablet not dissolving.


I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.

Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.

The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.

Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.

Hope that helps and best regards!

If you live in a hard water area the 5 in 1 tablets will only work half way. Consider Calgon powder or the tablets which can be left in the dishwasher cutlery basket as an additional measure. Hard water areas are notorious for leaving chalky residue on cutlery regardless of 3 in 1/5 in 1 tablet promises. 
Also your dishwasher will require rinse aid too as most machines need this to mix in with the general water and soap solutions when the dishwasher is on its final rinse.

Dishes not being cleaned properly - large portion of tablet still remaining in the bottom


I have a 4114 and the problem was not enough water entering the washer. You can check by adding extra water (kettle full) to the washer just after start. ( opening the door just suspends the cycle) If your dishes clean well then you will need to adjust the pressure level switch to allow more water in. There is an adjustment screw on the switch which needs to be turned 1/4- 1/2 a turn. This puts more tension on the spring so more water needs to enter before the switch is activated. On the 4114 the switch has 2 adjusters. It is the taller of the 2 that require adjusting. Do little turns until the water level just covers the filters.
