Hello I have a Quiet Power 3 dishwasher that is leaving food residue on my dishes. The dishwasher is 2.5 years old and all of a sudden this problem is happening. I have not changed dishwasher soap. It...


If you live in a area with hard water, there may be a large buildup of hard water/soap scum in the bottom water reservoir where the pump, filter, and other working parts are. This is located inside the tub, not underneath. This scum/crystallized material can clog the water channels & filter so the water jets don't spray hard enough, as well as overwhelm the filter. Because phosphates were ordered removed from dishwasher detergents, hard water minerals can now react with the soap to create a heavy greasy-feeling scum. That scum can build up in the water lines, arms, bottom reservoir, and filter, providing an endless supply of goo to spray on your dishes. This can be fixed. You need to remove and clean out the spray arms, the filters, and especially the array of parts at the bottom of the tub. I've seen up to 1 cup of coagulated/crystallized scum in the bottom of dishwasher tubs (I know this may be beyond many homeowners, so if you aren't up to this first step, then just try the next/second step but do it 3 times with no dishes in the washer). Once you clean out the scum, then run the washer empty with a completely full detergent cup on the highest temperature setting, extra rinse. Before you start it add to the detergent cup 1 teaspoon of TSP(tri-sodium phosphate), a very powerful phosphate cleaner available at hardware stores. Your washer will now have all scum gone from the inner workings. From now on you must always fill both your detergent and pre-wash cups to the max and use a high temperature water setting, extra rinse. Chemically what you're trying to do is adding so much detergent that the scum-forming reaction is overwhelmed by the dispersant action of the detergent, and the extra heat helps this to be more effective. I am not a fan of vinegar in the wash cycle. Why? In some washers the vinegar fumes can reach the exposed contacts of the printed circuit board or touch pad, corrode them, and then your washer won't work at all, along with being very expensive to fix.

Soap scum on shower doors


We definitely want to stay away from any cleaning products that have an abrasive. Your local grocery or department store will have products specifically for cleaning soap scum. Some products will work better than others depending on the type of mineral content in your water. The best product is one where you don't have to do an excessive amount of scrubbing to remove the hard water and soap scum stains. Be sure to follow the manufacturers instructions for the best results. Again depending on the mineral content of your water you may have to try a few different products until you find one that works the way you want it to. There are also products you can purchase that you would spray onto the glass after a shower to prohibit the buildup of soap scum.

Doesn't clean anything


You should try running a load with 4 cups of white vinegar and no soap through the unit. This should help remove some of the soap scum and build-up that has accumulated. Hope it helps _MJ_

Samsung Washer,less than year old. Not every load and not every item but periodically something will come out with stains not previously on the item.


Hi,

This is common, if the machine does predominantly COLD washes.

Over a period of time, there is a build up of soap scum (washing powder/fabric softener etc) inside the machine, caused by using excess soap powder/detergent.

To recitfy this, fill the empty bowl (no clothes) with a solution of HOT water & CITRIC ACID (found in the baking isle of your grocery shop) on HI Water level. Set the machine to wash cycle, then drain.

Fill again with same solution, but leave solution inside the bowl overnight.

Drain next day, then follow with 1 single HOT wash (no clothes) on HI water level again.

The scum should be gone...

The hot flush should be done at least every 6 months, but this can be dramatically reduced if you use less soap powder (Samsung machines do not require as much powder, as do other machines)

My GE washing machine has a foul odor after it has been used


Most likely caused by build up of soap scum. Fabric softeners are the major contributor to this. It causes a thick residue to build up on the outer drum.

Best to get a service technician to remove inner drum and scrape to clean it off.

Once clean Vinegar is good for disinfecting, and Descaler crystals are available, but neither of these will remove the soap sludge which would have built up over time.

Good luck

Clothes smell after wash cleaned filter still clothes smell


set the machine off on a 95c wash with no clothes or soap in, the most likely cause is a build up of soap scum on the inside of the drum, also try to alternate between washing powders and liquid tablets.

hope this helps

Smell on towels


It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.
