Hi!

Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

SOURCE: Dishwasher 3 in 1 detergent tablet not dissolving.

I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.

Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.

The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.

Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.

Hope that helps and best regards!

It may just be the way you are loading the machine.  If the dishes are not allowing the the detergent door to open fully, the tablet sits in the dispenser until you open the dishwasher, letting the dispenser door open and the half dissolved tablet falls out!     Try being more careful how you load the machine or just chuck the tablet in the bottom of the machine instead of the dispenser!

sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

either there is not enough water (check water valve) or the pump filters are clogged (check and clean as necessary)

Not cleaning dishes properly


It means your water is not hot enough or you don't have enough water to dissolve the tablets. Please turn up your water tank for startes. If the problem persists, you will have to replace the heating element.

Bosch Diswasher SHE68T52UC


Error code 08 says it's a temperature sensor problem. If the temp sensor is bad, the water heater may not be getting the water up to a hot enough temperature to dissolve the soap block. Also, while you have the unit out for repair, make sure that the drain hose is clear of debris. I have seen a number of dishwashers lately that were replaced simply because they "weren't cleaning" or "draining slowly" where the only problem was a blocked drain hose.

Dishwasher tablet not dissolving when dishwasher beingrun


is your water or water temperature setting too cold? The hotter the water the better chance to dissolve the tablet.

Maybe try running on the heated or sanitize cycle to see if it works better. I always run the sink tap until there is hot water coming out before turning the dishwasher on....

Tablet not desolving after quick wash cycle


Find out whether your quick cycle is a wash cycle or a rinse only. If it is a wash it's obviously too short, and the tablet is not dissolving. You do not want undissolved tablets because they will contaminate your rinse water and u end up with soap on the dishes. You can switch to powder if a tablet isn't going to dissolve quick enough on your quick cycle.

I went to take out my dishes out of the dishwasher this morning and the tablet was sitting at the bottom of the machine half disolved and most of my dishes weren't washed properly. What is the problem?


1. Check that water enters dishwasher.
2. Check that water is heated,tablet door will then open, this allows the propellor to shoot hot water at tablet to dissolve.

Dishwasher has a overfill problem rinse light flashing


An Idea: the Overflow sensor or float is bad, stuck, disconnected and its messages to STOP filling aren't getting thru to the CPU

This is usually located in the right frony of the machine or in the side wall. Float types get gummed up with 1/2 dissolved soap powder (god what we do tho the water systems) see if it moves. Sensor types have a hole that feels or senses water. If clogged, they lie. Clean out with toothpick and blast with a bit of hot water and air. Retry

If fixed, let me know... if not, see the yellow pages for parts dealers ;-)

Cheers
