Question about Blakeslee D-8 Dishwasher

1 Answer

No dishwashing agents or rinse agents dispensed into machine through external tubes.

Serial # of machine in question is - 71-68981-BAA. No product of any kind is dispensed into this machine. The staff was told this machine was for sanitizing only and not to be used as a typical commercial dishwasher. They have been washing dishes by hand and then running the dishes through to sanitize with just hot water. A year ago, I realized what was happening and told them to at least start using it as a dishwasher and add the soap manually. I would like to know if there is any reason why I cannot have this machine adapted to use the soap and rinse agent that all the other dishwashers in our organization use . We currently use Echo products. Claire Phillips, Food Service Manager

The D-8 is a great D/W and is in fact a full use D/W if you call Ecolab,Diversey or whatever chemical agent you use they can install an automatic soap system on this machine with no trouble

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

I have a 2 year old GE dishwasher that the rinse agent dispenser stays full & the product never comes out or works. My dishes come out clean, yet spotted.


If you are handy you could take the front panel aprt and see if the tube that connects to the selonoid to dispense at the proper time is plugged with crystallized chemical or it could be broke and just leaking out the door and into the bottom of the dishwasher.

I put liquid dish soap (not even dishwasher soap) in my rinse aid compartment of my dishwaser...will this hurt the washer? Do I need to get soap out and how?


yes it will foam up unlike you have never seen before
by disassambling the door and removing the risne agent dispenser and very throughly draining the soap it may get all of it out(rinse it with only cold water since hot water promotes sudsing while cold water kills sudsing) if even a few drops remain it will suds like crazy during the rinse cycle (when the agent is dispensed) to remove all suds from the machine fill a cup of white vinegar placed in the upper rack such as if you would drink from it (not upside down) and run the d/w of a normal cycle
a better but unfortunitly more costly solution would be to replace the rinse agent dispenser

Dishes on both levels are left with a cloudy film that requires them to be hand washed. Can you tell me why?


Could be too much rinse agent. Most dishwashers have an adjustment on the dispenser. Set it to the lowest setting while still preventing water spotting. If you use the tablets, you may be getting a double dose of rinse agent, as the tablet have rinse agent built in, plus the dispenser will add the normal amount = 2 x required amount.
Another thing is the phosphate levels of detergent. With zero phosphates allowed now, you see more of this. Try a product called "Lemi shine" made by envirocon. It is a citric acid based powder. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 Lemi Shine, the remainder the regular amount of POWDERED dishwasher detergent.

White film left on the dishes after going through the dishwasher. Why?


Too much rinse agent. If you are using powder or gel, set pointer knob on rinse agent dispenser to a lower setting. If you were using the tablets, they have rinse agent built into them, and the additional rinse agent from the dispenser equals a double dose, so the film shows up. Stop using tablets until liquid rinse agent dispenser is empty.

Won't dispense dishwashing detergent


There is a recall on these that has to do with the rinse dispenser and fires. Go to the manufacturer's site with model and serial number to see if yours is recalled. Rinse agent drips on the wiring inside the door and can cause a fire.

Rinse agent won't dispense in Maytag dishwasher


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
