What does it mean when my Frigidaire professional series dishwasher has an error code of 91 and the China/Crystal setting light is illuminated?


Rod, Try unplugging or turning off breaker for ten minutes to reset. If this does not fix, you may want a good Tech. have a look, diagnose and estimate repair.
Code E91 could be User Interface to Main Control Board communication error. Communication problem. Check the wiring between the Main Control Board and the User Interface Board. Wiring bad, correct wiring problem. Wiring good, replace the User Interface Board. If the problem is not corrected, replace the Main Control Board.

  • The dishwashers door vents emit steam which can harm small children as these are often at a toddlers eye level. Many units have an option where you can lock the dishwasher preventing a child from opening it and crawling in. It's best to keep small children away from the dishwasher.

Hello bamspry - From what you are describing if only the China/Crystal icon is working, then the dishwasher could possibly be experiencing a communication problem coming from the main control panel or wiring failure. If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repair(s).

I have a Whirlpool reset DU8900XY-1 Dishwasher and the power stopped in the middle of the cycle. There is water in the bottom of the washer. I checked the electric cords and everything looks good.


Most likely the thermal fuse has tripped. This could happen if the dishwasher overheats. The thermal fuse is in the base near the heater. I am not sure if you can reset it, you will have to find out by accessing it. Otherwise need to buy a new one and fit it in. Refer item 18 on this drawing . If it works, then you need to find the reason for overheat. Most likely faulty thermostat. Item 19.
Good luck.

I am trying to clean earthen pottery plates in my dish washer and after washing half of the plates disappear.


The Kenmore PRO also has an Ultra Wash Filtration High Energy Filtration System that helps the majority of us with hard water. It features 2 spray arms, and a Turbozone that blasts away the most gunked up items you can make a mess on.

The Kenmore PRO also features 6 cycles. The High Energy Smart Wash Cycle is the most advanced and versatile. It actually senses the load size, soil amount, toughness of soil and uses minimal water and energy. The Smart Wash Cycle runs from 110 minutes to a max of 194 depending on toughness of soil and uses from 4.2 gallons of water to 6.9.

The Pots Pans Cycle also makes some adjustments depending on soil level and takes from 140 minutes to 203 minutes to complete. It uses 4.8 to 6.9 gallons of water.

There is also a self-adjusting Normal Cycle that runs from 110 minutes to 193 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has a self-adjusting China Gentle Cycle that provides a light wash and gentle dry for delicate items and runs from 105 minutes to 194 minutes and uses 4.2 gallons to 6.9 gallons of water.

It also has a 1 Hour Wash that runs for 58 minutes and uses 8.0 gallons of water and a 15 minute Quick Rinse Cycle that uses 2.1 galllons of water.

The Kenmore PRO also has 5 other options that are additional to the Cycles. Each option adds time and water to the selected cycle. They are:

TurboZone, HI Temp Wash which raises the water temperature to 120 degrees F, a Steam Sanitize which raises the final rinse to 155 degrees F, a Top-Rack Only Option, and a Heated Dry Option.

The Kenmore PRO also has a Delay Option that allows you to run the dishwasher on off-peak hours and delays the start time up to 6 hours.

I have not field-tested all these options yet, becaue I am such a skeptic -- and picky about my dishes, I usually go ahead and always use the TurboZone, the Hi-Temp Wash, the Steam Sanitizer, and the Heated Dry Option. But, hey if you are plunking down $1500 for a dishwasher--you should make use of all your options. I'll keep this review up-to-date as my dates with the Kenmore PRO progress with dinner parties and my very precious china, but for now (mostly because of the "ClangBanger") our good china is safely stored in the cabinets.

How is the china and crystal wash cycle different from the regular cycle on my GE Triton XL dishwasher? Can I use regular dishwasher soap on my china and crystal?


Most dishwashers that employ this setting use a lower temperature for the water and also they do not use the element to dry the dishes, they are air dried. China and crystal are very sensitive to changes in temperature and can crack easily. They should always be washed by hand however if you have to use the dishwasher make sure you have a mild detergent. No bleach or acid should be contained. If it says citrus anything it has acid in it. Also use half the amount of detergent regardless of its strength. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Which is the best powdered cascade product for the china/crystal setting on my miele?


Most european dishwashers are water conserving and energy saving. You have to be very careful in the type of detergent that you use. Plain, original cascade powder works fine in your Miele. Use 1/2 of the recommended amount, as your dishwasher uses much less water than the american machines that the amounts are written for. avoid cascade with additives such as bleach, or dawn. these additional components in the detergent do not rinse off well with the reduced water quantity, and will leave a gritty white residue on your dishes. Stick with the plain powder. I use Finish tablets with the red powerball, and I dont add rinse aid. These tablets work great in the Miele, asko, Bosch, and other imported dishwashers.

One caution on your china and crystal setting, your manual states that if you want to use the china and crystal cycle, the dishwasher should be connected to cold water only. The temperature of the china and crystal setting is limited to 115 degrees. your hot water is probably much hotter. if your dishwasher is connected to hot water, it will defeat the purpose of the lower temperature cycle. you will get etching on your crystal glasses.

Remember, the Miele will heat its own water one batch at a time. Connect it to cold for energy efficiency, hot for shorter cycle times. but cold only for china and crystal.
Enjoy your machine.

Bottom water sprayer is not going round


Hello Joannekirk9,
I used to work at Miele in the technical services department. The most likely cause of your problem is the jets on the spray arm are clogged with soap build up or debris.
Solution - Try cleaning out the bottom spray arm jets with a toothpick and then running the dishwasher through a short cycle like normal or china crystal setting. You may also periodically do this with about 1 liter of vinegar to clean out the stainless steel tub once every 6 months to prolong the life of the dishwasher. The vinegar acts as a really good cleaning agent. Also, When using soap use 2 tablespoons of powder solution only!!! Oversudsing is the biggest problem I have seen with these dishwashers. If you are still having a problem contact Miele technical support. They are always extremely helpful. I also have a G832sci and has been great
