  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.

    1. 6.Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

    2. 7.Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.

Dvd wont play disc root comes up?

When you load the DVD, instead of the content loading, the word "Root" comes up? This means the content is either corrupted, the disc is dirty, or damaged. In other words, the laser is not able to reach and pick up the magnetic information on the disc. Does this happen with another DVD player? Try doing that first. In the meantime, clean the disc. If the disc can't be read by another DVD player, then the disc is at fault. If another DVD player can load the disc with no problem, the original DVD player you used, may have a dirty lens (what the laser shoots out of), or the laser is not moving at all. If this is the case, the DVD player is broken.

test your water alkaline and acid content during last rinse cycle, this usually causes stinking smell to your clothes. water should have a pH 7 to come out neutral.

Washer not cleaning contents

Either there is little or no water entering the dishwasher. As soon as it starts it's cycle, open the door to see if you can see water on the bottom. If not, then you probably have a defective fill/float switch.

When I wash whites they come out grey. I put them in seperate from colours. I have cleaned the filter and the dispenser draw but it still happens. I have also used a washing machine cleaner and have run...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Is it possible that the water is not hot enough? Can you judge easily?
A suggestion/action which could do 2 things at once- clean the heating element and (maybe) kick the 'NTC' (water thermostat) into correct operation. I know you have used a cleaner and run maintainance washes but I would certainly try this.

I suggest you run the contents of a couple of sachets of proprietary limescale removing powder/fluid through it. The most efficient way is to put the contents in an empty washer and pour the contents of 2 kettles of very hot water into the drum then leave overnight. In the morning run just a spin; the water mix will then go through the drain filter and drain motor impeller blades, doing absolutely NO harm whatsoever, in fact some good!
You could also consider repeating the action ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

How do I open the dustbuster to clean out the end

There should be an area to press at the joint between the front section, and the motor section. The whole front cone comes off to empty the contents, and there is a filter - but no bag with these.

Hope this helps you.
Thanks for using Fixya
