SOURCE: diswasher not rinsing properly
You may have a clogged wash pump, resulting in low water pressure. This may not be enough to drive both spray arms at the same time. This can also be causing the problem with your detergents not being distributed properly. An easy way to tell if you have good water pressure is to open the door slightly while its in mid cycle. Look for a good strong spraying action from both spray arms. If you're not getting enough water, and you've already checked your supply hose coming in, then suspect you might have an obstruction somewhere. Most cleaning problems can be attributed to something as simple as food particles stuck in the vicinity of the wash pump inlet. You will have to remove the lower spray arm and coarse screen to get to it, however. Rule of thumb: If you still have to chew it, then it shouldn't go through the dishwasher. Scrape your plates of food particles, yes. But, don't put things like meat scraps, popcorn kernels, chicken bones, orange or lemon seeds, beans (the skins can clog the drain screen), etc. This does not mean you have to pre-wash BEFORE you wash. Most dishwasher detergents require the oils in foods to help activate the cleaning agents. One more thing: City water - stick with liquids or gels. Well water - stick with powders. Now, if all else fails ad you've checked the inlet to the pump and it's clear, you may have a bad drive motor and pump. Go with the cheaper solution, first. I hope this helps you. Let me know if I can help you any further.

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!

There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.
Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

Check the water intake screen for sediment. Sometimes if sediment partially clogs the screen, the water pressure is lowered significantly enough to cause these conditions.
If you send me the make & model of your DW I'll tell you where the intake screen is. Sometimes its on the bottom which is a pain because you have to pull the DW out of the cabinetry...
