If you have hard water then you might want to get a water softner.And get cascade powder soap,tablespoon to a teaspoon of powder soap is all you need for a whole cycle.

Which cycle is the hottest


Hi Shonda.

the answer will depend a bit on the specific washing machine you have, and on the settings. There will usually be settings of hot, warm, and cold for both the wash and rinse cycle. A hot wash and hot rinse will keep you at the highest overall temperature during the wash.

There are a number of washers that have internal water heaters that can optionally be activated, usually with a panel switch. This lets them boost the water temperature in the event that the water coming from your water heater isn't that hot - say if you've turned the heater down so that kids won't scald themselves at a sink. The heater option, if there, will make the hot water hotter, though you'd have to look in the manual for you particular machine to see how much hotter.

Conversely, if you want hotter water in the machine, you could raise the setting for your water heater, though you should be mindful of whether this will endanger anyone. You'll also use more energy keeping the heater hotter, so bear that in mind.

Hope this helps, and Good Luck!

My Lg dishwasher is new stainless steel tub is not shiny like orignally white spots and white film is on my colored drinking glasses and clear glass is spoted


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.

you need soda crystals or a good descaler/degreaser agent to clear out machine repeated washing on low temps will cause scummy build up in inner drum door seal area,causing smells and poor rinsing result,this could be why condenser dryer not working as needs clear passage for air and steam during dry phase.

Door is wet with condensation at the end of the cycle although dishes are dry


this problem should be under dishwashers not washing machines! however this is caused by lack of rinse agent this aids the drying process and removes moisture from crockery check levels if ok try using detergents with salt and rinse aid combined may be dispenser is not working properly.

The washer quits at rinse and spin dry cycle


I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem.
In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.
