SOURCE: Dishwasher leaves soap in dispenser.

Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.  
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only.  Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete"  or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting.  All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6.  Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade)  Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month.  Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack.  Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working.  Good luck.

SOURCE: dishwasher was washing I opened door to add dishes

Hi, Thank's for your reply. If I where in your position I too would certainly weigh the comparison of repairing versus replacing however, if you are capable this one is worth inspecting. I would start by checking the breaker ( insure there's power to the unit ) door switch, insure the latch is making contact with the switch plunger,(tiny pin that actuates the door micro-switch) the wiring, etc. The timer being the least likely, so we'll cross that bridge if & when necessary. If you are not comfortable with the "do it yourself" idea, again you'll have to decide if the unit is in otherwise good enough condition to justify calling in a pro. If so I'd also suggest an authorized Asko servicer as these aren't like most other dishwasher's and I personally have witnessed many mis-diagnosis due to ignorance or un-familiararity, I don't know. I don't want to see you get "took" for unnecessary repair cost's. Let me know if I can assist you further and I'll watch for your replay again, keep me posted. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: I have a Nobel Dishwasher

Not sure how far you want to work on this Nobel dishwasher. Most likely the heater or the timer itself is the problem (unless you are supposed to use hot water connection). The detergent door problem could be due to dispenser relay getting stuck sometimes. I believe the company does not exist any more and you will have trouble getting parts.

It might help if you provide the model no. so that I can try to check it out better.

SOURCE: My Nobel dishwasher keeps tripping

Something to try. Get a short HD extension cord and plug the washer in to a outlet just outside of the kitchen and see if a different breaker trips. Turn off and or unplug all small appliances when using washer. Could have a defective breaker. Good luck, best regards.

SOURCE: dishlex global 300 : dishwasher dispenser won't

Hi just read your posting.The problem could be a faulty dispenser coil ,or the wires to it are faulty or the computer is faulty.Try selecting a normal eco wash and when you push the start button to start the machine hold the button in until the pre wash light turns off.This should make the dispenser activate straight after it fills.The only way to test which part is faulty is with an electrical meter.Have you or can you borrow one.If so then I can guide you step by step in finding the fault.please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.

Have to slam dishwasher door to make it go electrolux 4000


Hello David Horn - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may also prevent the unit to start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.
