I would guess the detergent door is open and the powder comes out so, If water is going in then the pump is not pumping.

Listen for the water to fill then after it stops open the door to make sure it's full of water. If no water or not enough then replace the water valve. If you have water then the pump is not pumping.

Water coming out of soap tray and running down the front of the machine


Your soap tray and/or inlet is probably blocked with undissolved powder. Remove the tray and clean it. Also clean the inlet tube from the tray into the washing machine with hot water.
I, personally don't like soap powder and use a liquid or tablets because washers nowadays tend to use cold water only so doesn't fully dissolve the powder. Also the outlet to drain gets blocked along with the underground pipe to the mains sewage.

The dishwasher runs but the dishes are still drty


There could be a couple of things to consider.
First, is your water temperature hot enough to dissolve the detergent? It should be 140 degrees if you're using dissolvable tablets or a powder detergent.
Second, your sprayer arms might be clogges with "gook." If so, you'll need to remove them and flush them at your kitchen sink. I sometimes have to take a toothpick or tweezers to remove bits of bone, paper, fruit or vegetable peel, from the jet holes.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back and rate my solution.

I have a six month old Bosch dish washer and 8/10 times the powder is not disolving?

Here are some of the possible causes; 1. Low on water (fill the machine, let it start and see if the unit has enough water). Sometimes the screen on the fill valve get partially clogged and slows the flow and when the timer engages and therefore enough water was not installed. 2. Defective fill valve (partially sticking valve sometimes will not let a unit get the proper amount of water before the unit starts and therefore the powder in not dissolved). (3)Any detergent will generally dissolve when contacted with water, unless is has had previous contact with water or is old....

Using powder 1/2 recommend amount. there is a continual build up of powder in the dispensing cavity behind drawer. how do I prevent this am having to clean with toothbrush daily


Hi

When you start a cycle, does the machine take a long time for it to fill up with water.

If so, you have a faulty inlet valve. There is a rubber diaphram inside the valve which tends to tear over time.When this happens the water just trickles in. Therefore the soap/powder is not dissolved into the tub thouroughly.

Some powders also dissolve less than others, and using the machine on hot water cycle helps to dissolve the soap faster.

Our Miele G984SC does not start and the drain/intake light has been on since we cannot start it


Is machine full of water? If yes, you probably have a drain problem. Check drain pump impellor is turning freely (instructions for this available from Miele website-go to Customer Support link, and download user guide for your model-it contains instructions for removing filers and accessing drain pump). If this is OK, check for kinks in drain hose, and check for blockage where drainhose connects to spigot on waste pipe (usually under your sink). If machine is draining OK and light still flashing, you may have problem with inlet valve/hose assembly-recommend calling service agent to repair.

Dishwashing powder/liqud will not dissolve


Is your dishwasher filling and draining? The detergent should mix, completely with the wash water and there should be no residue of just detergent. Make certain that the machine is filling and draining properly, otherwise, call the repairman.

ZDT5052 flashes quickwash light


Tarvi...I don't know what the problem is...hard to diagnose these things. If the unit is working correctly, I suggest that you simply cut the power for a few minutes and then restart it. That may clear our a trouble code.
