    It is a 24 inch lxic. Thanks

    I think it is the board. The detergent usage is the same as it has been
    since new, so that would eliminate the pump & line restriction. The
    detergent is the same brand as it always has been.That leaves the board
    or calibration. I have tried to adjust the trim pot on the sensor that
    is around that poly line...to no avail. I have a part number 00-892715.
    Does that sound right? Do you know the approximate cost? Thanks

    Is this a new machine that you just got?Did you switch to a different detergent or replace an empty bottle?The e-7 code means the unit didnt sense a chemical on the 3rd attempt.You could have a bad chemical board or its out of calberation,the chemical pump motors bad,a line is restricted or some chemicals cant be sensed by the unit (rare).Let me know.

Built-in dishwasher. dishes not clean, plus nasty white residue on everything...


Hi

The white residue is from the new environmentally safe soap. Check your soap and see if it is phosphate free soap and that will be your issue. Also either you have hard water or you're seeing either calcium or lime deposits. You should use the jet dry for every load. There should never be any suds in a dishwasher. Do not use liquid dish detergent for the dishwasher.Try running a load without dishes, using vinegar, or a bottle of Dishwasher Magic. Another possibility could be you're not getting enough water. The level should be close to the heater(check your tech sheet to be sure). The water temp should be at least 140 deg.F (no matter what the box says) Also, use a good brand of detergent (Cascade) and be sure your wetting Agent dispenser is full. (jet dry)You should not have to pre-wash your dishes..just scrape them well.The detergent actually needs some dirty dishes to work properly..fats, protien, etc. to make up 1 more chemical for the detergent.Another important step is to run the hot water faucet before running your d/w to "purge" the cold water out of the line.

2LYMPAIA - F4


Hello

If you have F4 and the sump is full of water, there's a good chance the drain pump is being jammed by a broken bit of glass or pottery. However, if the appliance is empty of water and F4 error code is flashing, where do you go from there?

The electronic control (module pcb) does a self check of the components, during a drain cycle the programme allows a time parameter for the appliance to empty away the water. How does the pcb know the water has gone? Simply by testing a pressure switch for continuity.

The pressure switch is an on or off switch, when the appliance is empty the internal contacts are "made" (on) when the appliance is full of water the switch is "broken" (off).

The sensing grid of the pressure switch is exposed to the dishwasher wash water and can over a period of time get clogged with crud ( a mixture of food waste and detergent and limescale), eventually this crud stops the switch from being in the correct attitude during the self tests. The electronics notes the on or off and determines that the appiiance has not drained and gives error code F4.

If you have F4 error code it could be the pressure switch needs cleaning or replacing.

On the self test about 4 mins is allowed for the appliance to empty the water away.

I havent used my dishwasher in weeks because it leaves a gritty stuff on the dishes and though they seem to be clean they are not


some of the new detergents have additives in them such as "bleaching action" or with dawn additive. these compounds are very difficult to rinse off, and most people use way too much detergent anyway. run your dishwasher empty on the hottest setting for 2 or 3 cycles. add a cup of white vinegar to each cycle. after you are done, try to use plain cascade powder, and only use a tablespoon. your problem should go away. keep in mind that more detergent is not better, and the detergent manufacturer makes money when you use their product. they are going to recommend that you use alot. you need to vary the amount of detergent with the amount of soil on your dishes. If you pre wash your dishes before you load them, you dont need much detergent at all. the recommended amount is for really dirty dishes.

White powdery film is on dishes at end of cycle.


Too much detergent. the amount of detergent should vary with the amound of soil left on the dishes. Most users will pre wash their dishes in the sink, but still use the full recommended amount of detergent. There is no soil for the detergent to bind with, so it builds up in the pipework of your dishwasher. when the water evaporates during the drying cycle, the detergent residue is left behind on your dishes. Run a cycle or two with your dishwasher empty. add a cup of white vinegar to each cycle, but dont add any more detergent. After that, cut your detergent amount by half, and see if your issues go away. if not, please post the model and manufacturer of your dishwasher.

Even after a wash-a white detergent residue is left.


I have a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and had the same trouble. I found the solution. Fill the detergent dispenser to the top with Cascade Complete liquid gel - it is in a green bottle, then put a half a cup of white vinegar in the bottom of the tub before you start the dishwasher. I have tried them all and Cascade Complete Gel works best. Don't use powder. It really builds-up on my dishes and only the gel keeps the film off my dishes.

I also add Jet Dry in the rinse-aid dispenser but I have a friend who use vinegar in that too. The dishes come out sparkling clean with no film or white build-up. If they still are filmy after three washes using this method, then you may have some build-up in the dishwasher and you can put a cup or two of white vinegar in the bottom - with no detergent or dishes and wash and rinse well. That helps get rid of build-up.

After a wash cycle my unit leaves a film on my glass'


first thing you need to do is purchase a bottle of dishwaser cleaner from your groc store in the diswasher detergent section red the instructions on the label add it to the cutlery tray in an empty dishwasher upside down remove the paper seal off the top of the lid do not remove the wax seal place the bottle upside down in your dishwasher turn on hot water tap and run till it is hot next turn on your washer set it to wasn and let it run a full cycle. when washer finishes open it up when it cools and fill rinse dispenser in door with a good quality rinse agent like jet dry close dispenser and when dishwaser is full of dirty dishes turn it on the jet dry will make your galsses come out crystal clear w no film and the dishwaher cleaner will help all your dishes come cleaner.Use the dishwasher cleaner aroun 4-6 wekks it cleans all the inside of the dishwasher and removes a lot of **** aND RESIDUE THAT ACCUMULATES IN DISHWASHERS OVER TIME
