Water from airvent after wash

When the wash is finished and I open the door, about half a cup of clean water falls out of the airvent at the top left of the door. Further info: towards the end of the cycle, some mechanical device in the area of the airvent seems to be labouring. Hope you can help. Thanks.

Re: Water from airvent after wash

We had this problem and when we checked the drain pump it was not turning properly because of hairs wrapped around it

I have an Electrolux ESL6115 dishwasher model and although there is water coming out and the spray blades seem to be turning the dishes are always wet after the cycle has finished and there appears to be...

Its possible that if you live in a hard water area that limescale buildup is causing this problem if salt levels got low. The first thing that can be done is to run it with 2 or 3 cups of vinegar added & see if it cures it. If it won't accept opening the door to add this after wash has started then add it in a wide dish to catch water & wash it out during cycle. Adding a dose (half cup) of bicarbonate of soda alongside should work even better. This has worked really well for washing machine about to give up on & do regularly to prevent problem. Hope this helps.

The soap does dot dissolve

assuming you are using the correct dishwasher detergent type and quantity recommended for the dishwasher, the likely cause for detergent not dissolving is that the water is not circulating well enough through the wash arm. Check the wash arms are clean. Do dishes come out clean? Run the dishwasher with a cup correct side up on the top rack. If it is empty at end of wash then there is no water in the top arm.

Is the detergent dispenser door open during wash cycle?
Also lack of adequate wash water template can cause detergent to remain undesolved. Hope this helps.

check to make sure that there is enough water in the dishwasher. if not then take a container and pour some water inside, place a cup right side up in the top rack. close door and and set the machine to wash. wait about 30 seconds, then open the door, if the cup is half full or better, then your pump is good. and your problem is with your water inlet valve. the mesh probably needs cleaning, better yet just replace it.

Soap still in large container on door at end of cycle. recently had center spinner arm and main console replaced twice. doesnt clean well. residue left in cups

residue..... check lower spinner arm and clean any bits from insideit by back washing with water, also check the pump inlet and filters.....

as for soap still in container, does the soap recepticle door open... if not just place the required amount of detergent on the lower half of the door..

If the door does open and there is still soap ing the recepticle there is definitely a water problem...

you can also try to remove both the upper and lower spinners and run the dishwasher for a couple of minutes to flush out any debris or buldup inside the lines.

A good quality dishwasher cleaner may also be wothwile trying....

Good luck!

Maytag Quiet Series 300 - it seems like the soap door is not opening and when it does the soap packets are not dissolving. I cleaned out all of the spray arms. That did not help. What else can I do??

  1. Be sure that you don't have something large blocking the dispenser door like a cutting board.
  2. Make sure the water temp is 125 degrees going into the dishwasher. Cold water won't break down detergent correctly.
  3. Make sure your getting water pressure: Run your dishwasher on normal. Wait until the cycle starts and the spray arms are spraying. Turn a cup right side up to catch water on the top rack if you run the dishwasher and wait 20 sec that cup should be half or full. If you don't have water in the cup you could have poor water pressure from your pump. This could indicate 1. Worn motor 2. Clogged pump
Have a great day!

Soap is not disolving. Falls out of holder and stays on door and floor of washer.

Are dishes also not coming clean? Most likely, there is not enough water chruning in the tub to rinse soap out of cup during wash cycle. Sufficient wash action will wash the soap out of the cup and dissolve it in the water within a few seconds of the cup opening.

Most likely causes are:

Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)

Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.

New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.

Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.

If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.

Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.

Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.

Hope this help. Good luck.

Does not remove all food some residue remains after wash cycle

check and make sure that you are getting water too the top rack place a cup or mug upright in the top rack turn the dishywasher on for about 2 minutes you should a least have filled the cup up half way if not to the top. if you are not getting water to the top rack check to make sure that you have enough water in the unit. also before starting the wash you want to point the wash arm in the same direction to make sure that they are turning. Do they turn? when you are finished with a cycle do you see steam or is it cold inside. let me know what you find.

Dishwasher only a couple of months old. Ran it

The water may not be hot enough. Increase the temperature of the incoming hot water or try this: put the tab in the open soap cup so it will start to dissolve during the pre-wash. Then it will finish dissolving during the main wash. If the dishes get clean using this method you may not have to increase the water temp.

Dirty racks

What is the manufacturer and model number of the dishwasher?
Here is the process I would follow to remove the gunk.
Start a short cycle in the dishwasher, without adding detergent powder and after the (hot) water has filled the DW and the wash cycle has begun, open the DW door and add 1/4 cup of household bleach. When the water drains and begins to refill for the 2nd wash cycle, check the dishwasher to see if anything has gotten better and if not, add another 1/4 cup of bleach as soon as the hot water has refilled. Allow the DW to finish the full cycle.
Begin another short wash and as soon as the initial hot water fills and the wash cycle begins, open and add 2 cups (approximatly) of white vinegar. Allow the whole set of cycles to finish and check the insides.
If grease remains, I would use a de-greasing spray (avilable at all hardware stores and most food stores.) Spray on and use paper towels on all surfaces.
Because I do not know the make and model # for your dishwasher, I can not give you a part number for replacement racks.
Good Luck!
